1 Introduction

The module described here is a slave-CPU of the Promodul-U system,
used as an InterBus-S Master USK DIM.

RS422
RS232


Figure 1: USK DIM Module


The PROMODUL-U is a modular automation system for
programmable logic controller (PLC), numerical (CNC) and robot (RC)
controls of the medium and higher performance classes. It can be
extended to a total of 256 function modules.
Control units are available for PLC, PLC/CNC and PLC/RC
applications with both 16 and 32 bit processors so that a variety of
automation tasks can be carried out. Up to four control units can be
run as a multi-master system in the central assembly rack.


UDF DIM commissioning diskette

Operating Manual USK DIM Version 08/05

2 UDF DIM commissioning diskette

The IBS.EXE archive stored on the UDF DIM disk contains two sub-
directories. The archive is self-extracting. Copy the IBS.EXE file in a
new directory on your hard-drive and start the program with
IBS -d .
After extraction, you will find four new sub-directories.
1. \USK-DIM: contains an example program in AWL to drive the USK
DIM
2. \F201: contains the F201function module to make it possible to
use the USK DIM.
3. \DOWN: contains a program to download the F201 into the control
system
4. \PROCON: contains an updated assembly library for the slot list
editor PROCON.EXE

2.1 \USK-DIM directory
The project MAIN.HMP is created with Prodoc 5.x. Copy the project in
a directory on your hard-drive using Prodoc (copy project
management/project). In the Prodoc copy project management go to
the MAIN.HMP project. Then you can translate the project and
transfer it to the controls.

2.2 \DOWN directory
Here, the program DOWN.EXE for downloading function modules into
the controls is located.

2.3 \F201 directory
The F201 function module takes over the administration of the USK
DIM remote page, so that the PLC-programmer does not come into
direct contact with the InterBus-S master's hardware/software
interface.

The F201 function module is transferred to the controls with the
auxilliary program DOWN.EXE or with PROTERM.EXE (not contained
in the archive). The syntax for downloading with DOWN.EXE is:

down -f f201.mx

In case you need help on DOWN.EXE, enter "down" (without any
parameters).

2.4 \PROCON directory
Only
Copy the library PROCON_U.BIB in the directory in which you have
installed PROCON.EXE and/or PRODOC.

2.5 Including the USK DIM in the slot list


Only for software version older or equal 95.30

As the USK DIM is a new Promodul-U assembly, the previously
released operating systems for the Promodul-U will not automatically
recognize this assembly during an initialization cycle.
For this reason, the Promodul-U slot list must be edited with the slot
list editor PROCON.EXE. To do this, initialize the controls before the
USK DIM is slotted into the rack. Call up PROCON.EXE and enter the
slot list into the controls (receive PLC communication / configuration).
Change to the module table and insert the USK DIM module in an
empty slot. Transmit this configuration with a set lockflag back to the
controls (transmit PLC communication / configuration). Switch off the
controls and place the USK DIM in the empty slot that you have also
used in the module editor. Switch the controls on again. The USK
DIM is now ready for operation.
With the next release of the operating system (after 95.30) for the
Promodul-U, the USK DIM will automatically be entered in the slot list.

2.6 Controls ON switch position TEST
When switching on the controls with remote modules already supplied
with power the RUN-LED on the USK DIM will flash. All modules on
the bus are recognized and error-free, but the data cycles on the bus
are not yet initialized.
When switching on the controls without remote modules already
supplied with power or with defective or wrongly wired remote
modules, the RUN-LED and FAIL-LED on the USK DIM flash. In this
case, the USK DIM cannot carry out a initialization cycle on the bus
because the bus is being not operated by the remote modules.
The condition for the start of the PLC is that the FAIL-LED is unlit. The
F201 can only start the InterBus in this condition. The FAIL-LED
remains unlit if the InterBus is correctly cabled when switching on the
USK DIM and when the remote modules are functioning.
The data cycles on the InterBus-S are only started when the PLC is
set in RUN, and/or when the F201 has initialized the InterBus-S for
data operation.

2.7 The InterBus-S remote words in the controls

The I/O data of the connected InterBus-S modules are not depicted in
the IX/QX/IW/QW areas but in marker in areas defined by the F201.
A description is provided of the F201 below.

F201 function module

8
Operating Manual USK DIM Version 08/05

3 F201 function module

The F201 possesses four parameters which each represent one
reference to a marker array, e.g.:

CAL F 201
PAR MW 0,00
PAR MW 8,00
PAR MW 16,00
PAR MW 18,00

(or VW.. instead of MW..)

These four marker arrays are defined by the (MAIN.HMP) program
(supplied).

3.1 PAR 1 Input Data

The first parameter is a reference to the data storage area shown in
the InterBus-S's remote modules' input-words.
3.2 PAR 2 Output Data

The second parameter is a reference to the data storage area in
which the output words for the remote modules on the InterBus-S
must be contained.
3.3 PAR 3 Control Data, Status Data

The third parameter is a reference to the F201's control parameter
area. The F201 possesses six control parameters and five status
parameters.

3.3.1 Control parameters

Word 0

Number of the remote page on which the USK DIM must be
addressed (1..n). If no additional module with a remote page has been
inserted in the rack to the left of the USK DIM, the USK DIM will be
allocated the remote page number 1., otherwise 2, 3, etc..
Word 1

The PLC system can re-start the InterBus-S, without the PLC -
stop/start being executed (reset). If this word is set at 1, the F201 will
go through the entire initialization sequence (see status parameter
word 11). The marker will be immediately reset at 0 by the F201 in
following cycle.

3.4 PAR 4 Current Bus Configuration

The fourth parameter is a reference to the parameter area of the F201
in which the current bus configuration is returned. In this example, a
list is provided of the so-called device identifiers from MW 18,00
onward.
Each InterBus-S slave possesses a identifier, which identifies the
process data characteristics of the device.

Module Value Explanation
Analog module 0x0433 Analog remote station 4 IN and 4 OUT
data words.
Digital module 0x0103 Digital remote station with 1 IN and 1
OUT data word (16 bit digital 'in', 16 bit
digital 'out').

There is a further series of identifiers that each identify specific
characteristics of the device. They do not identify the manufacturer!

Number of Bus stations

12
Operating Manual USK DIM Version 08/05

5 Number of Bus stations

A maximum 64 slaves can be connected to one InterBus-S master
USK DIM. Neither the number of input words and output words (16
Bit) may exceed 128.
By these means, one USK DIM can administer 1024 input-bits and
1024 output-bits. Any number of USK DIM's can be connected to the
Promodul-U rack, each of them operating their own buses.

5.1 Organisation of the I/O words

Each InterBus-S module possess a specific number of input and/or
output words. These are located in the F201's IN/OUT data areas in
the order in which they are physically present on the bus. Parameters
1 and 2 of the F201 refer to these data areas.
The drawing on the next page makes clear how the I/O areas of three
InterBus-S modules are displayed on the marker arrays of the F201.

5.2 PLC test program

Load the AWL-program into the controls. Ensure that the markers
used and the remote page are not being employed by any other parts
of the program that might be active.
Start the PLC system. If the slave modules are correctly cabled and
connected with the USK DIM, then following PLC-start, the F201 will
run through the conditions in this order:
1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, ...

Should an error occur, the F201 will remain in one of these conditions
and will show the cause of the error in status parameters word 8 and
word 10.
If the InterBus-S runs without errors (all LEDs on the USK DIM
switched off, apart from Module Access and RUN), you can activate
the outputs of the connected InterBus-Slaves by simply writing in the
output-area of the F201 (parameter 2). You can also read the
conditions of the inputs by simply reading the markers from the input
area of the F201 (parameter 1).
Base addresses

6 Base addresses


DIK A 4E/2A DIE 16 DIK 16E/16A
Analog 4WIN / 4WOUT Digital 1WIN Digital 1WIN / 1WOUT


Figure 2: Example base addresses

The modules' base I/O addresses can be set with parameters 1 (input
address ) and 2 (output address ) of the F201 function module (see
PAR1 and PAR2). The addresses of the following modules are each
dependent on the addressable area of the previous module.

Example:
Base input address = MW 0,00 (PAR1)
Base output address = MW 8,00 (PAR2)
If the modules above are connected to the USK DIM in the order
shown, the following address distribution will arise:

Module Input addresses Output addresses
DIK A 4E/2A MW 0,00 - MW 0,03 MW 8,00 - 8,03
DIE 16 MW 0,04

Application information

Operating Manual USK DIM Version 08/05
15

8 Application information


If the USK DIM is used in the UCS 10/20 control unit with software
version 95.30 (30th calendar week of 1995) or UCN 20/21 (up to
version 95.32) in the Promodul-U system, the module will not be
recognized automatically.
In this case, the slot list must be adjusted with the Procon
configuration, as described in the USK DIM operating manual. With
later software releases for the Promodul-U control units, the module
will be recognized automatically.



Information of keeping within EMC limits:
A shielded cable must be used in order to connect the USK DIM with
InterBus-S-Slaves. The shielding must b applied to both sides of a
shielding / protective conductor bar. Metal cable clips should be used
to fasten the braiding of the shielding cable, connected to the shielding
with a large cross-sectional joint to provide a good contact. The
shielding should be laid on the protective conductor bar directly after it
has entered the switchgear cabinet and continued to the USK DIM.
The protective conductor bars must be connected to the cabinet earth
and the protective earth (PE) conductor over a large cross-sectional
area.



The USK DIM also possesses an additional RS232 interface with
which it can be connected to the PC for diagnosis purposes. The use
of the diagnosis function is not yet generally permitted (on request
only).

Operating Manual USK DIM Version 08/05

12 Safety-related Informations

The term automation system as used in this manual includes control units, their components
(modules), other parts (such as racks, cables), operator panels, and the software used for
programming, commissioning and operating the control units. This operating manual can only describe
a fraction of the automation system (e.g. modules).
The technical design of SCHLEICHER automation systems is based on the EN 61131-2 (IEC 61131-
2) product norm. The systems and devices have CE marking according to the EMC directive
89/336/EEC and, if applicable, the low-voltage directive 73/23/EEC.
The machinery directive 89/392/EEC is not applicable, because the safety objectives of the directive
are covered by the low-voltage and EMC directives.
When SCHLEICHER automation systems are part of the electrical equipment of a machine, the
manufacturer must include them in the conformity evaluation process. In this case the DIN EN 60204-
1 norm must be observed (safety of machines, general requirements for electrical equipment of
machines).
When an automation system is properly maintained and used for its intended purpose it will not
normally cause damage to property or present health hazards. However, improper configuration,
installation, maintenance or operation of the system or machine, ignoring the instructions in this
manual, or intervention by insufficiently qualified personnel may result in connected actuators (such as
motors, hydraulic units, etc.) becoming a source of danger.

12.1 Correct Use of the System

SCHLEICHER automation systems are state-of-the-art products and manufactured to recognised
safety requirements. All the same, their use can cause danger to the health and safety of operators
and others, or damage machines, systems or other property.
The automation system must only be used in perfect technical condition for its intended purpose, with
attention given to safety and danger, and observing the operating manual. Correct transport, storage,
installation, operation and maintenance of the system are all prerequisites for smooth and safe
operation of the control system. Malfunctions, in particular those which may affect safety, must be
immediately resolved.
Automation systems are designed exclusively to control machines and systems. Automation systems
are not intended for any other use than the above. The manufacturer will therefore accept no liability
for any damages resulting from the incorrect use of the systems.
When using automation systems, all instructions given in this manual regarding mechanical and
electrical setup, commissioning and operation must be observed.

12.2 Selection and Qualification of Personnel


All configuring, programming, installation, commissioning, operation
and maintenance work on the automation system must be carried out
by trained personnel such as electricians or electrical engineers.
Personnel responsible for configuring and programming the system
must be familiar with all safety-related issues in automation
technology.
System operators must be instructed on the operation of the control
system and be familiar with the relevant operating instructions.
All personnel responsible for installing, commissioning and maintaining
the system must have had appropriate training qualifying them to work
on automation systems.

12.3 Configuring, Programming, Installation, Commissioning and Operation

The automation system will in most cases be a part of a larger system in which machines are
controlled. When configuring, installing and commissioning automation systems to control machines
the machine manufacturer and the user must observe the safety regulations as defined in the
machinery directive 89/392/EWG. For specific applications national accident prevention regulations
such as VBG 4.0 will apply.
Safety-related components on the controlled machine must be designed such that they operate
independently from the control system. Emergency stop components must be operational in all control
modes. In an emergency stop the power supply to all switching elements controlled by the control
system must be cut off.
Measures must be taken for restarting an interrupted control program following voltage dips or power
failures. Operating conditions should never cause danger, not even for a short time. In the event of
danger the emergency stop must be immediately triggered.
In order to prevent an open-circuit in the signal circuit causing non-controllable conditions in the
control system, the relevant hardware and software safety precautions must be taken for I/O
interfacing. Control elements and their assigned control panel elements must be installed in a place
where they are sufficiently protected against inadvertent use.

12.4 Maintenance

Measuring and testing on active devices must be carried out in accordance with the regulations and
instructions of the VBG 4.0 accident prevention regulation. The appropriate power tools must be used.
Repairs on control components must be carried out at repair shops authorised by SCHLEICHER.
Opening the components and repairs by unauthorised personnel may lead to personal injury or
damage to property.
Always be disconnected the device from the mains before opening it (either disconnect the mains plug
or use the cut-out switch).
Control modules may only be replaced when the power is switched off. Disassembly and assembly
must be carried out according to the directives for mechanical assembly.
Fuses may only be replaced with those types specified in Technical Data.
Batteries may only be replaced with those types specified in Technical Data. Batteries must always be
disposed as hazardous waste.

12.5 High Voltages


When the cabinet is opened or casing is removed from system
components certain parts of the automation system are exposed. These
parts may be subject to dangerous high voltages.

The user must prevent any unauthorised and incorrect access to the system (for example, by ensuring
that the cabinet is locked).
Personnel must be familiar with all sources of danger and measures for commissioning and
maintaining the system in line with the instructions given in this manual.

12.6 Dealing With Used Batteries

When the batteries in the automation system are dead they must be disposed of in a battery return
system or through public waste disposal facilities.
Batteries should be fully discharged before disposal. A battery is discharged when the function of the
device is impaired due to insufficient battery capacity.
When batteries for disposal are not fully discharged precautions must be taken to prevent short
circuits. For example by sticking tape over the poles of the battery.
