OEE Coach Modbus IO Modules

Our ICPDAS ethernet I/O modules all talk ‘ModBus’. The question is what the user wants to do.

You may want to switch a light on via the box: This would take an OUTPUT channel. To switch two different lights you would need TWO channels OUTPUT.

You may want to read a temperature-sensor; this would take an ANALOG INPUT: One channel per temperature sensor.

Or you may want to read a digital signal; 1 or 0. This is what most of the product sensors do: The give +24v when they see a product and 0v when not.

So if you want to read a good-product sensor, a checkweigher reject sensor and a metal-detector reject sensor, you would need 3 digital input signals (=reading 3 channels)

So each box has its unique IP address. On that address (for our box) we have to tell the system on which channel which sensor is giving what kind of signal; e.g. Reject Checkweigher

At this moment we do not use output signals, but you may expect in the future we will allowing to light up andon-poles on the machine, giving a visual signal to the operator about running or not.ET-7052 CR

ET-7052 (OEE Coach Standard box)

To do so order the ET-7052 Ethernet I/O Module with 8-ch DI, 8-ch DO (this is our standard box)

  • Ethernet I/O Module/Modbus TCP/8DI/8DO
  • Built-In Webserver: configuration, monitoring with standard Webbrowser
  • Modbus UDP/TCP
  • I/O Pair Connection
  • 8 isolated digital input channels (wet contact) with 32-bit counter
  • 8 isolated digital output channels (open-collector, max 300 mA per channel)
  • Power Supply: 10-30 VDC (ET-7052) or 12-48VDC / POE (PET-7052)
  • DIN-Rail Mounting
  • The ET-7052/PET-7052/ET-7252/PET-7252 provides 8 wet contact digital input channels and 8 source-type digital output channels. It features optical isolation for 2500 VDC of transient overvoltage protection but doesn’t provide channel-to-channel isolation. Each input channel can be used as a 32-bit counter and each output channel can drive 650 mA load. The power-on value and safe value of digital output channel are programmable. It can safely be used in applications where hazardous voltages are present.

An alternative is:

ET-7051

ModBus ethernet module ET-7051 16 In

  • Ethernet I/O Module/Modbus TCP/16DI
  • Built-In Webserver: configuration, monitoring with standard Webbrowser
  • Modbus UDP/TCP
  • I/O Pair Connection
  • 16 isolated digital input channel (wet contact) with 32-bit counter
  • Power Supply: 10-30 VDC (ET-7051) or 12-48VDC / POE (PET-7051)
  • DIN-Rail Mounting
  • The ET-7051/PET-7051/ET-7251/PET-7251 provides 16 wet contact digital input channels. Each input channel can be used as a 32-bit counter. It features optical isolation for 3750 Vrms of transient overvoltage protection but doesn’t provide channel-to-channel isolation. It can safely be used in applications where hazardous voltages are present.

24v Power

You also need a power source such as this one:

Connecting Hardware to OEE Coach

First time accessing the module via IP Address

  1. Connect the module via UTP cable with your Inter/intranet
  2. Connect power to module
  3. Set switch at the back of the module to INIT
  4. Start miniOS7 Utility
  5. Press F12 to search your module:

6. If your module is found, it is connected correctly; you can now see its details:

  1. Change the IP settings as desired to access the module from now on by clicking [IP Settings]. Entering an astrix (*) will keep the current settings
  2. Place switch of the ET7xxx module back to normal and reboot the module
  3. Press F12 again. Are all IP settings correct?
  4. Start your browser and enter the IP address as URL to access the internal web-server of the ET7XXX module:
  5. Enter the module with user Admin, Pasword Admin

Accessing the Webserver in the ET-7XXX Module

When performed the steps described previously, you now enter the modules web-server:

  1. Check the settings; (See modules manual) normally you do not need to change anything here.
  2. Connect your sensor to the module i.e. on DI01 (Digital In 1)
  3. Go to menu [Web HMI]

4. Test the sensor: you should see the channel counting the pulses detected by the sensor.
