IDEC Izumi FA-Series ID:16

Interface Description

IGSS32 offers an interface for IDEC IZUMI FA-Series PLC equipment. The Interface is designed to communicate with IDEC IZUMI FA-1, FA-1J, FA-2, FA-2J and FA3 series PLCs via either 1:1 peer-to-peer or 1:N network protocols. Both protocols uses standard serial RS232 ports.

The IGSS32 system polls the PLC equipment cyclically according to one of four user-defined time intervals. The time intervals are configurable from 100 milliseconds to 999 seconds. The system automatically groups process data in data blocks – thus fully exploiting the the communication link in relation to the present configuration.
