SMC-Flex Datalink Configuration Reference 1/9/2012

SMC-Flex Datalink Configuration



Datalinks are supported in the SMC-Flex. A Datalink is mechanism used by most drives to
transfer data to and from the controller without using an Explicit Message. The SMC-Flex
only supports 16-bit Datalinks, therefore the device can be configured to return up to 8
additional pieces of parameter information. By default the 8 parameters (parameter# 1, 2,
3, 4, 5, 6, 11, 12) are returned in the I/O message when all 4 output Datalinks are
configured. These parameters identify the following values:
Parameter #1 = Voltage Phase A-B
Parameter #2 = Voltage Phase B-C
Parameter #3 = Voltage Phase C-A
Parameter #4 = Current Phase A
Parameter #5 = Current Phase B
Parameter #6 = Current Phase C
Parameter #11 = Power Factor
Parameter #12= Motor Thermal Usage (MTU)

Keep in mind that the returned parameters can be changed by simply changing the values in
programmed in parameters #89 through #103. Also, only output Datalinks are configured by
default. Input Datalinks can be configured, but have limited functionality when used with
the SMC-Flex.

The following example uses all 4 Datalinks. The communication interface used is the 20-
Comm-D DPI to DeviceNet module.

The next step in the configuration is to enable the 20-Comm-D to allow the Datalinks. To do
this the following parameters in the 20-Comm-D need to be configured. Depending on the
configuration tool you are using, these parameters values may be different. The example is
shown using RSNetWorx for DeviceNet:

Parameter #148 DPI I/O Cfg Enable each of the Datalinks being used.
Parameter #160 M-S Input Enable each of the Datalinks being used.
Parameter #161 M-S Output Enable each of the Datalinks being used.

The last step in mapping the information to the scanner/controller is to select the
appropriate message size. Below is a table that describes the correct I/O size depending on
the number of Datalinks enabled.

16 16 x x x x x
20 20 x x x x x x

With the SMC-Flex in the Scanlist insure that the I/O information is correct by selecting
the Edit I/O Parameters. A sample screen is shown below. If these values are different
than what is desired, change them and then click O.K. This may cause some information to
be re-mapped so make sure that you are aware of where it is being mapped.



In this case the output information from the SMC-Flex has been mapped into the following
locations. Keep in mind that the ControlLogix platform is separated into 32-bit words.
