There are 10 universal inputs/outputs (X1 to X10) and four digital outputs (DO1 to DO4) on the controller.

Four DOs can connect to relays (with load), and 10 universal inputs/outputs can be configured as:

Configure universal I/Os

  1. On the Device Configurator page, right-click on a universal I/O terminal to be configured, for example, X1.
  1. Configure the following parameters according to the actual application in the pop-up window:
  • Point Name: Enter an easily identifiable I/O name in the text box on the right. When completed, the corresponding terminal turns green.
  • Description: Shortly describe the I/O in the text box on the right.
  • Unit: Enter the measurement unit.
  • SignalType (Required): Select a correct signal type in the drop-down menu on the right.
  1. If signal type In_0-10V, Out_0-10V or In_4-20mA is selected, the following options are displayed:
  • SignalRangeMin: Enter the min. value of the signal range.
  • SignalRangeMax: Enter the max. value of the signal range.
  • MeasureRangeMin: Enter the min. value of the measurement range.
  • MeasureRangeMax: Enter the max. value of the measurement range.

Configure digital outputs

  1. On the Device Configurator page, right-click on a digital output terminal to be configured, for example, DO1.
  1. Configure the following parameters according to the actual application in the pop-up window:
  • Point Name: Enter an easily identifiable output name in the text box on the right. When completed, the corresponding terminal turns green.
  • Description: Shortly describe the I/O in the text box on the right.
  • Unit: Enter the measurement unit.
NOTICE

  1. Max. 24 characters (12 Chinese characters) are allowed for an I/O name.
  1. I/O configuration information can be copied to other terminals or ports by left-click drag and drop.

Add configured I/O to the programming page

Depending on the actual application, configured I/O can be added to the corresponding device's open programming page and applied to the logical program. Two ways are available to add a configured I/O to the programming page:

  • In the Device Configurator page, double-click on a terminal, then the tool prompts that the corresponding I/O is successfully added. If switching to the programming page, you will find that the added I/O is displayed in the pane on the right automatically. You can drag its Value Set and Value Get functions to desired locations in the logic program.
  • In the programming page, expand the "variable" function block, drag and drop a block to a desired location in the program, and then correlate the block to an I/O by selecting the specific I/O name from the drop-down list on the right-hand side. To locate the I/O, enter a keyword in the search box and press or Enter to confirm the search. If multiple results are available, select the correct one from the drop-down list. You can click to clear the current keyword.
  • Note: I/O names can only be searched in I/O blocks, virtual point names only in virtual point blocks, and input names only in reliability blocks.
