Built-in pulse outputs for four axes (50 kHz max. each)
Up to 99 units can be connected, expanding applications for the eco-conscious business field.
The PLC link is available with up to 16 other FP series and FP0R units.
80 ns/step (ST instruction)
* Within a range of 0 to 3,000 program steps
Program maintenance and management become easier.
Capable of high-speed program transfer with USB 2.0
A variety of dedicated instructions enable high-accuracy positioning.
Program capacity: 32 k steps max.
Data register: 32 k words max.
■Jog positioning control (F171 instruction)
The motion can be started without a preset target value. When a stop signal is input, the target value is set, and the motion is slowed to a stop.
■Individual settings for acceleration and deceleration
(available for F171, F172, and F174 instructions)
The acceleration time and deceleration time can be individually set.
■Changing the speed
(available for F171 and F172 instructions)
The target speed can be changed by an external signal input during the jog operation or trapezoidal control operation.
■Measuring the pulse frequency (F178 instruction)
Pulses input in a specified period by a single instruction are counted, and the frequency is calculated.
■Built-in 4-axis pulse outputs (Transistor output type)
Two sets can simultaneously undergo two-axis linear interpolation.
No complicated speed calculation or programming is required.
Two-axis linear interpolation is available by using the F175 dedicated instruction. Two sets such as two X-Y tables, for example, can be simultaneously controlled.
■High-speed counters and pulse outputs
Ladder programs can be combined to create an application for counting pulse signals from the encoder through the high-speed counter input and adjusting the pulse output frequency based on the count to synchronize the slave axis speed with the master axis speed.
■Built-in multipoint PWM outputs (4 channels)
The pulse output port of FP0R can also serve as a PWM output port. One of the application examples is an analog voltage output, which can be used for inverter speed control.
■PLC link (MEWNET-W0)
Contact data can be shared among up to 16 PLC units, including FP0R, FPΣ, FP-X, FP2/FP2SH, and a mixture of them, without the need for programs.
The FP0R operation status can be monitored on a Web browser.
The FP0R operation status can be monitored on a Web browser by connecting FP Web-Server2 and FP0R via RS232C and making required settings using dedicated software (FP Web Configurator Tool 2).
■RS485 serial communication
Compatible with both Modbus master and slave RTU.
This feature expands applications for the eco-conscious business field, and is ideal for the control of air conditioners, temperature, and electrical power.
Up to 99 units can be connected.
When 17 or more FP series units need to be linked, you can link up to 99 units by using the Modbus function instead of MEWNET-W0. Since each FP0R unit can be either a master or a slave, a multi-master link can be created by passing a token from a user program.
■RS232C general-purpose serial communications
The control unit has an RS232C port for serial communications.
The RS232C port allows for direct connection to an operation display panel or a PC. Also, it facilitates bi-directional data communications with bar-code readers and other RS232C devices.
* The port block has S, R, and G terminals for connection. Operation display panels can also be connected to the tool port.
* Both the relay output and transistor output types of control unit equipped with an RS232C port are available.
■CC-Link slave unit
This unit is compatible with CC-Link, which is an open network, and capable of reading/writing four-word data through a maximum of 16 input and 16 output points.
■I/O link unit
This link unit enables FP0R to serve as a slave station of MEWNET-F (remote I/O system) and exchange I/O data from 32 input points and 32 output points with a master station without the need for programs.
Program upload protection setting
User programs can be protected from unauthorized copying by disabling program upload using our software, FPWIN. This function is useful for users who manage original programs on a PC.
Since uppercase and lowercase alphanumeric characters can be used, there are approx. 218 trillion possible password combinations.
If an incorrect password is entered three times in a row, a cold reboot is required.
This function is useful for users who upload programs from FP0R.
・A temperature control program can be written in only one line by using a PID instruction (F356 EZPID), facilitating temperature control programming by a PLC, which had previously been considered difficult.
・The total accuracy is ±0.8℃ ±33.44℉ (K, J and T range). Two types are available: 4-channel and 8-channel types. Up to three units can be connected, allowing high-accuracy multi-point PID control of a maximum of 24 channels.
■Built-in real-time clock (T type only)
The clock allows for year, month, day, hour, minute, and second data processing. The clock data can be linked to periodic monitoring of production data and operation status, and the management of error history records.
This function takes in input signals at high speed regardless of the scan time and instantly executes the interrupt program. This is useful for high-accuracy positioning control or control of defective item ejector valves. The X0 to X7 inputs can be designated as interrupt inputs (C10: X0 to X5).
This function can take in 10 μs short pulse inputs and is therefore ideal for taking in signals from a sensor to detect small components.
The lineup includes a compact analog I/O unit with one analog output and two analog input channels, an A/D converter unit with eight analog input channels, and a D/A converter unit with four analog output channels. Communication using up to 24 channels is possible. Both the compact body size and the high input/output resolution of 1/4,000 (12 bits) have been achieved.
The DIP switches in the unit cover a variety of input/output ranges and are user-friendly.
■EEPROM data saving (F12 and P13 instructions)
All FP0R series models are equipped with EEPROM, which can electrically rewrite data and retain data without the need for voltage supply. Setting data and production result data can be written and saved by the P13 instruction, and read out by the F12 instruction when necessary.
■Program download in RUN mode (Comment writable)
Even while the equipment is operating with FP0R in RUN mode, a whole program edited offline can be downloaded to FP0R, and comments can be written simultaneously.
Programs can be changed without stopping a running production line.
