D Setting by the rotary switch on Power Mate i equipment.
The detail of the setting method is referring to the chapter F.4.2.
The first selection mode is ”3”
The second selection mode is
0 : Cancel of the selection of the RS–232–C port by the second selection.
1 : Use the ”DPL/MDI Operation Package” on the RS–232–C port 2
2 : Use the ”FAPT LADDR– II” on the RS–232–C port 2 (Channel 2).
When one of the following conditions is met, the on–line monitor driver
D Parameter ”RS–232–C” is ”USE”
D Setting of parameter No.0024 is ”1” or ”2”
D The selection of the first selection mode is set to ”3” and the second
selection mode is set to ”2” by Power Mate–i equipment(Rotary
However if the selection is done by the method of Power Mate i
equipment (Rotary switch), the other setting method( Parameter
”RS–232–C” is ”USE” or Setting of parameter No.0024 is ”1” or ”2”) is
The selection by Parameter screen for on–line monitor or parameter
No.0024 can be used when the setting by Power Mate i equipment (Rotary
switch) is cleared (first selection mode is set to ”3” and the second
selection mode is set to ”0”).
1 The on–line monitor driver occupies the line while it is
In this state, other input/output functions cannot use the
If other input/output functions use the line, it is necessary to
display the above–mentioned parameter and stop the
on–line monitor driver.
2 While the on–line monitor driver is operating, the following
functions cannot be used.
D [PMCLAD], [I/O], [EDIT], [SYSPRM] on CRT/MDI
D [EDIT], [SYSTEM PARAM], [I/O] on DPL/MDI
3 In case of operating NC, the screen display of NC (Position,
etc.) might be slow when using input/output functions (Load
from PMC, Store to PMC, etc.).
There is no problem in the operation of NC. It is
recommended to using input/output functions while NC is
4 When the screen made by C language executor is
displayed, the communication speed decreases. It is
recommended to use input/output functions after moving to
other screens (Position, etc.).
