Is it posible to connect serial printer (Epson LX-300) and CJ1M PLC (using peripheral port)? I want to print data from DM area using TXD instruction.

Beljic,

The CJ1M does not support 'no protocol' mode via the peripheral port, you will be unable to use the TXD command with this port.



You can however use the RS232 port. (is this port free ?)

Thank you Nibroc.

RS232 port is not free. Can you tell me what is the best (and not expensive) serial com. unit for CJ1M?

If the CJ1M is a Version 3 processor you can use a CJ1W-SCU21-V1 Serial Communication module and use the TXDU instruction. This will give you 2 RS-232 ports.

If it is an older processor, you can still use the same module, you will just need to set up a protocol macro and use the PMCR instruction, which will require CX-Protocol software.

Hope this will help.

Thank you!

Yes, it is Version 3 processor. Is this configuration posible?

NT3S touch panel connected to RS232 port on PLC (PORT)
Epson LX300 connected to CJ1W-SCU21-V1
Other CJ1M connected to CJ1W-SCU21-V1

The above configuration depends on how you want to communicate with the other CJ1M processor. If you want to use the Serial PLC Link, that will require using the Built In RS232 port.

You would be able to move the NT3S to a port on the CJ1W-SCU21-V1 without a problem.

You could also use the CJ1W-SCU21-V1 and the TXDU instruction to send data to the Epson printer.

Hope this will help.
