10. CONNECTION TO PERIPHERALS
The Power Mate i–D/H can be connected to a commercially available
touch panel that supports FANUC’s interface designed for other
suppliers’ touch panels. With programs on the touch panel, input relay
(x), output relay (Y), internal relay (R), keep relay (K), data table (D),
timer (T), and counter (C) information of the Power Mate i can be read,
and touch panel screens can be created based on the read information. In
addition, data can be written to the relay (R), keep relay (K), data table
(D), timer (T), and counter (C) areas in the Power Mate i.
Commercially available touch panels that support FANUC’s interface
designed for other suppliers’ touch panels can be connected to the Power
Mate i. For information about whether a touch panel supports FANUC’s
interface for other supplier’s touch panels, contact the manufacturer of the
FANUC has confirmed the operation of the following touch panels:
S GP–450E, GP–550T, and GP–550S manufactured by Digital Co.
S Handy terminal UT6–AY114 FNC8–A manufactured by Japan
Aviation Electronics Industry, Ltd.
FANUC has not confirmed the operation of products other than the above.
Power Mate i
(1)The touch panel interface of the Power Mate i is RS–422 (JD40).
(2)The Power Mate i cannot be maintained using commercially available
touch panels. So, a notebook personal computer (FAPTLADDER–II,
DPL/MDI operation package) should be made connectable to the
Power Mate i over RS–232C channel 2 for maintenance purposes.
Instead of the notebook personal computer, a setup/display device
such as a detachable LCD/MDI can also be used for maintenance.
(3)The customer should prepare cable J162.
(4)Turn on the power to the Power Mate before turning on the touch
panel. Some touch panels allow setting of the time from power–on
until the touch panel starts operation. When such a touch panel is used,
the touch panel may be turned on before the power–on of the Power
Mate if the Power Mate is turned on before the touch panel actually
