Cannot get Online - CPM2C

2 posts in this topic

Hello Ladies and Gents,

Im quite new to working with Omron. I am struggling very much to get online with an Omron CPM2C-S110C. It has a CIF01 card also. I hear this PLC is quite an old one.

I have referenced the manual on 'connecting a computer running support software' and double checked I have the correct cables.

The ones I am using and the way I am connecting is:-   PLC Peripheral slot >> CS1W-CN118 >> XW2Z-200S-CV >> serial to USB >> Laptop

Checking on Device Manager, I have all the drivers installed, the comms ports are correctly numbered yet I still cannot connect. There are 4 dip switches on the top right hand side of the CPU and all are swiched off. I have called Omron Tech Support and they said to ignore them in this instance.

The RS232C port on the CIF01 is used by a barcode scanner so there is no means to connect through that (I have been told)

I feel that I have been through setting and checked in CX-Programmer and nothing looks obscure.

Please offer me any ideas you may have. I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Dip switches are only for DeviceNet speed, reference manual W377.

What USB to serial converter are you using?  Not all are created equal.
