Caution: indicates that minor personal injury or property damage can result if proper precautions are not

taken.

Notes for designing

The programming must include safety circuit to ensure the safe application of the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) system upon power off or the PLC malfunction. Note the following when programming:

The external circuit of the PLC must include the emergency braking circuit, protection circuit, mutual interlock circuit of forward/reverse rotation, and the interlock switch of position upper/lower limit for preventing equipment from damage.

For the safe operation of the equipment and output signals of the serious accident, please design the external protection circuit and the safety mechanism.

All the outputs may be shutdown when the CPU of the PLC detects the abnormity of the system; the failure of part PLC circuit may result in uncontrolled PLC output. A suitable external control circuit must be designed to ensure the normal operation of the equipment.

When the PLC output unit such as the relay or the transistor is damaged, the PLC output cannot be controlled as ON or OFF state.

The PLC is designed to be used in the electrical environment of indoor area B and C . However, to prevent

the high lightning voltage from damaging the equipment through the ports of power input, signal input or control output, a SPD should be installed in the power supply system.

: According to IEC61131-2, section 8.3.1 classification declaration

Notes for installation

Units should not be installed in areas subject to the following conditions: excessive or conductive dust, corrosive or flammable gas, moisture or rain, excessive heat, regular impact shocks or excessive vibration. Electric shock, fire hazard and mishandling may also damage the product.

Take special care not to allow metal debris and wire lead to fall inside the vent of the PLC during the screw hole processing and wiring. Otherwise there is a danger of fire, damage or faulty operation of equipment.

Once the installation of the new PLC is complete, remove everything on the surface of the vent, including packing goods such as protective paper. Otherwise the poor ventilation during the operation may result in fire, damage or faulty operation of equipment.

Do not wire, inset or pull out the cable plug with power applied. Otherwise there is a danger of electric shock or circuit damage.

Installation and wiring must be fastening and reliable. Bad contact may result in faulty operation of equipment.

The input/output cable of high frequency signal should use the shielding cable to improve the interference rejection of the system.

Notes for wiring

Installation and wiring can be done only after the external power supplies are all disconnected. Otherwise there is a danger of electric shock or equipment damage.

Once the installation and wiring of the PLC is complete, cleanup the spot at once. To prevent the electric shock, replace the port cover of the product before power is on.

When wiring AC supplies, the ‘Live’ cable should be connected to the ‘L’ terminal and the ‘Neutral’ cable should be connected to the ‘N’ terminal. Otherwise the PLC will be damaged.

Don’t power +24V port of the main module by the external power supply. Otherwise the PLC will be damaged.

Do not lay I/O signal cables of the PLC next to other power cables or strong interference circuits.

Do not make the earth port (PG) of the main module and the heavy current power system share the same earthing.

Notes for operation and maintenance

Do not touch the ports when the power is applied, otherwise there is a danger of an electric shock or faulty operation of equipment.

The cleaning and the fastening work can be done only after the power supply has been disconnected; otherwise there is a danger of electric shock.

Only after the power supply has been disconnected, can the communication signal cables and the cables of the expansion module or control unit be connected or removed. Otherwise there is a danger of equipment damage or faulty operation of equipment.

Do not disassemble the PLC. Otherwise it may destroy the inner electrical components.

Read through this manual carefully before operating the PLC. Safe and efficient operation of the product, such as program alternation, trial operation, start and stop, is only based on correct operation and maintenance.

Do not replace the button cell battery with power applied. If the battery replacement is indeed to be done with power applied, it shall always be carried out by adequately trained electric technical personnel wearing insulated gloves.

Notes for the product disposal

Note the following when disposing the PLC:

Explosive of the electrolytic capacity: The capacities on the circuit board may explode when burning.

Exhaust gas when burning: The main body of the PLC is plastic, and it may produce poisonous gas when burning.

Disposal of button cell battery: Classified collecting and disposing, and separating from the daily-life rubbish.

Follow the local environmental regulations to dispose the PLC or dispose it as industrial waste.

3.1 Notes For Installation

Installation

The PLC is designed to be used in the environments meeting with standard II installation ambient, and Class 2 pollution. So the unit should be installed in such environment free of dust, conductive dust, corrosive or flammable gas, excessive heat, moisture or rain; Besides, shocks and vibrations will also affect the reliability of the PLC and shorten its service life, and should therefore be avoided.

Usually, the user should mount the PLC and the associated switches, contactors to the inside wall of the electric cabinet and keep adequate natural convection. If the ambient temperature is a little high, or a heat generating equipment is nearby, then a forced convection device should be installed on the top or the side of the cabinet to prevent the overheat of the unit.

Take special care not to allow metal debris and wire lead to fall inside the vent of the PLC during the screw hole processing and wiring. Otherwise there is a danger of fire, damage or faulty operation of equipment.

Once the installation of the new PLC is complete, remove everything on the surface of the vent, including packing goods such as protective paper. Otherwise the poor ventilation during the operation may result in fire, damage or faulty operation of equipment.

Do not wire, inset or pull out the cable plug with power applied. Otherwise there is a danger of electric shock or circuit damage.

Installation and wiring must be firm and reliable; bad contact may result in faulty operation of equipment.

3.2 Requirements For Installation Position

To prevent a rise in temperature, mount the PLC up and down to the backboard of the cabinet horizontally. Never mount them to the floor or ceiling of an enclosure or other directions, as shown in the Figure 3-1. You must provide a clearance of at least 15 mm, both above and below the units, for proper cooling. No heat generating equipment

should exist around the PLC.

No heat generating equipment should exist around the PLC. 3.3 Installation Method Figure 3-1 Requirements for

3.3 Installation Method

Figure 3-1

Requirements for installation position

Generally you can mount the PLC onto a standard rail (DIN) with 35mm width. Follow these steps:

1. Fix the DIN rail to the backboard;

2. Pull out the clip (located on the bottom of the PLC) and hook the back of the PLC onto the rail.

3. Snap the clip closed, carefully checking to ensure that the clip has fastened the PLC securely onto the rail.

4. At last, install two DIN rail stops at the two sides of the PLC to avoid slippage around.

Other EC20 series modules can be mounted using the same procedures.

4.7.2 Use Of Each Circuit Output Power

1. Output1 (5V/GND): Output1 is the working power of the PLC main module logic circuit, and provides power supply

to the expansion module logic circuit through the expansion port of the module at the same time. And this power will not be used for the expansion module with self-carried power source.

2. Output2 (24V/GND): Output2 is the working power of the PLC main module relay output circuit, and provides

power supply to the expansion module relay output circuit through the expansion port of the module at the same time. Output1 and output2 share the common ground. And this power will not be used for the expansion module with self-carried power source.

3. Output3 (24V/COM): Output3 is the 24V power supply, which is provided to users by the PLC main module. Also it

can be used as an auxiliary power to other user circuits, sensors or expansion modules through the “24V” and “COM”

ports of the main module. Output3 is electrical isolated with Output1 and Output2.

*Explanation:

The current of “Inner consumption” in Table 4-10 is the average current consumed when the module inner circuit works. Users cannot change it directly.

The current of “capacity provided” in Table 4-10 is the part capacity of the main module that can be used for the external control module. The data listed in Table 4-10 is under the stable ambient condition with 25°C. If input voltage is out of rated voltage range or the working temperature exceeds +50°C, users should consider the derating design, which is mainly obtained by decreasing the value of “capacity provided”, to ensure the reliable operation of the PLC.

4.7.4 Derating Design Of Power Supply Circuit

1. Relation between power supply output capacity derating and power supply input voltage

When the input voltage of the PLC is beyond the rated voltage range, users should consider decreasing the main module’s output power to the expansion module. The derating relation is shown in Figure 4-2.

2. Power output capacity derating vs. work temperature relationship

When the work temperature is higher than the upper limit of the specification, the power capacity provided (including 5V/24V/GND and 24V/COM) by the main module to the expansion module must be derating. The derating relation is shown in Figure 4-3.

4.7.6 Power Capacity Calculation In Expansion Connection

Before the PLC connects with an expansion module, users should calculate the current sum of each power supply of the expansion module, and ensure the current sum is less than the output current provided by the corresponding power supply of the main module to avoids the over loading of the main module power supply.

Example 1: the main module is EC20-2012BR, at 25°C ambient temperature, two EC20-0808ET, two EC20-4AD, one EC20-4DA and one EC20-4TC shall be connected to, verifying the feasibility.

Checking computations as following:

Power circuit

Current provided by the main module

Actual consumed current

conclusion

5V/GND

750mA

(80×2+50×2+50+50) = 360mA

Pass

24V/GND

580mA

(0×2+0×2+0+0) =0 mA

Pass

24V/COM

460mA

(50×2+25×2+110+25) = 285mA

Pass

It is obvious that the total power consumption of above expansion module is less than the permission load of the main module, and the designing scheme is feasible.

Example 2: the main module is EC20-3232BT, at 25°C ambient temperature, three EC20-0808ET, two EC20-4AD, one EC20-4DA shall be connected to, using 20mA output port and one EC20-4TC.

Checking computations as following:

Power circuit

Current provided by the main module

Actual consumed current

conclusion

5V/GND

350mA

(80×3+50×2+50+50)=440mA

Un-passed

24V/GND

650mA

(50×3+0×2+0+0)=150mA

Pass

24V/COM

360mA

(50×3+25×2+120+25)=345mA

Pass

The sum of the 5V/GND power consumption of the expansion module is 440mA, it is larger than 350mA which is the upper limit of 5V power supply; although the power consumption of 24V/GND and 24V/COM is less than the permitted current of the main module, the designing scheme is unfeasible.

The solution to solve the insufficient of power supply capacity is to select the expansion module with self-carried power source. It can power by itself, also its outputs of 5Vdc/GND, 24Vdc/GND, and 24Vdc/COM can power to the expansion module added later.

4.8 Programming Tool Of User Program

5.3 Inner Equivalent Circuit Of Input Port

There is a user switch status detecting power supply (24Vdc). Users only need to connect to the switching signal of the dry contact. If the output signal of active transistor sensor is connected to, an OC output signal is needed. Figure 5-3 shows the signal input and inner equivalent circuit of the PLC, and user’s circuit connects with PLC inner circuit through the connecting port.

5.5 Interrupt Input Connection

For the system that responds promptly to the input signal, it can use the interrupt to process the signals. The input ports of X0~X7 have interrupt function and corresponds to the eight external interrupt sources.

If the input port is used as interrupt process mode, the corresponding interrupt control identification should be enabled when programming and the corresponding interrupt routine should be programmed (for details, refer to Programming Reference Manual). When using interrupt, the digital filter function of corresponding X port will be disabled and the filter time of the corresponding port is set as zero automatically.

When used as high-speed count input or interrupt input, the corresponding input port should use shielding wire, and the shielding wire should connect to earth line (same as PG port) to improve the interference rejection.

Some counters require multiple X input ports to realize (for example, C242, C244, and C254 consist of 2, 3, 4 ports separately). After using this kind of counter, the used ports cannot be used as input of other counters and the common input mode.

The input port of the counter has the limitation for the maximum frequency. Beyond the limitation, it may result the incorrect counting or normal operation of the system. You should use the input port reasonable and select the suitable external sensors.

5.6 Input Signal Status Indication

The input status LEDs indicate the status of the user input port. When the input port is closed (“ON” state), the LED is on; otherwise the LED is off. When the X0~X7 ports input high frequency signal, the flashing frequency of the LED may be lower than that of the actual input signal, which is for the convenience of the user to observe the characteristics of the port signals.

5.7 Analog Potentiometer And Application

The analog potentiometer provides external channel for users setting inner soft-device, which is within 0~255 and read by user program.

When adjusting the setting value, users can use a small Philips screwdriver to rotate the potentiometer clockwise to increase the setting value, and counter clockwise to decrease it. The maximum angle of rotation is 270°. Do not energize excess.

5.8 Example Of Input Connection

Figure 5-7 shows an example: an EC20-3232BT connects with an EC20-0808ER to realize a simple position control. The high-speed counting ports of X0 and X1 detect the position signal from the encoder. The high-speed ports of X3~X7 connect to the travel switch which needs quickly response, other user signals can be distributed with input ports.

6.1 Output Port Application

Output Characteristic

1. The output type of EC20 series PLC can be divided into relay type and transistor type. Both types are greatly

different in the operation parameters. You should distinguish the difference before using them to avoid the damage by the misuse.

2. To protect the contacts of the PLC output relay, when the drive DC circuit is inductive (such as relay coil), a

fly-wheel diode shall be connected to the user circuit; when the drive AC circuit is inductive, a RC surge absorber shall parallel connect to the user circuit. In principle, the relay output port does not connect to the capacitive load. If there is necessary to use, its surge current must be less than the maximum current in the specification list (see Table

6-1).

3. The transistor output port should be within the limitation of the allowable maximum current (see Table 6-1) to

ensure the thermal value of the output port is limited in the allowable range. If output currents of multiple transistors are bigger than 100mA, they should be distributed equally in the output ports. Distributed adjacent will affect the heat dissipation.

4. It is recommended the output points which are in the ON (conducting) state at one time shall not exceed 60% total

output points for a long time.

Figure 6-1 shows, output ports are divided into multiple groups, and each group is electrical isolated from others. Output contacts of different group can connect to the different power loop. For the inductive load in AC loop, the external circuit should be RC transient voltage absorbing circuit; for the inductive load in DC loop, it should consider to add a fly-wheel diode. As shown in Figure 6-2:

The inner equivalent circuit of the output part of the transistor output PLC is shown in Figure 6-3.

We can see that, output ports are divided into multiple groups, and each group is electrical isolated from others. Output contacts of different group can connect to the different power loop. Transistor output can but be used in DC 24Vdc load circuit, and you should pay attention to the polarity of the power supply. When driving the inductive load, it should consider adding a fly-wheel diode.

6.4 Output Port Status Indication

The status of the control output port is indicated by the output status LEDs. When the output port is closed (ON) state (the status between Yn and COMn is closed), the LED is on; otherwise the LED is off. When the Y0 and Y1 port of the transistor output PLC output high frequency signal, the flashing frequency of the LED may be lower than the actual output signal frequency, which is convenient for user observation.

6.5 Example Of Output Connection

Figure 6-4 shows the connection between one EC20-3232BR and one EC20-0808ER, different output group can connect to the different signal voltage loop. Some output group (i.e. Y0-COM0) can connect to +24Vdc circuit and be powered by 24V/COM of EC20 PLC. Some output group (i.e. Y1-COM1) can connect to +5Vdc low voltage signal circuit. Other output groups (i.e. Y2~Y7) can connect to 220Vac signal circuit. That is to say, different output group can work at different voltage level.
