The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how to connect and configure IO-Link master ILM400 with NX PLCs. For testing, E3S-F1500 IOLink sensor is used.
The programmer should have better understanding of Sysmac Studio and IO-Link technology
Create a new project by selecting a NJ(NX) of your choice
Go to the CPU rack, drag PF0630 card and then drag ILM400 from the Toolbox section to the CPU/Expansion Racks display section
Change the parameters like Process data in/data out length as per the value provided in IOLink devices (sensor or actuators)
Right click on the ILM400 and select IO-Link master simple settings
Select the IOLink sensor from the list (right side) and drag it to the Port 1
Click edit i/o allocation settings
Click input data set 1 and verify I/O entries included in as per the image below.
Go to the IO Map, right click on Port Input Data01/02 and select create Device Variable with Prefix
Go online and verify the data from the sensor
