OMRON Host Link Device Configuration

When you create a new device for OMRON Host Link communications, enter the following information in the New Device dialog box:

  1. In the Device field, enter the name of the device you are configuring.

  2. In the Port field, select the OMRON Host Link port to be used by the device.

When you click OK to create the device, the Device Properties dialog box opens.

The information you enter in the Device Properties dialog box defines the controller's physical location, or address. The format of the address information depends on the controller type (C-Series or CV-Series) and the controller's location on the attached network. The address information and programmable controller device type you enter are used to establish which protocol will be used within the enabler to talk with the controller.
