The FX-2PIF is an active two port communications module for use with all FX0(S), FX0N, FX, FX2C, FX2N and A series programmable
controllers. The PC type selection is made by setting DIP switches. The features of the FX-2PIF include;
· The FX-2PIF allows shared access to the PCs programming port by a data access unit and one other programming or
monitoring peripheral. The second peripheral can communicate to the PC on either an RS232 or a RS422 port. The active
port is simply selected by a positive hardware switch. If the RS232 port is used the FX-2PIF also acts as a RS232/RS422
· The FX-2PIF has been designed for use as a test and maintenance tool. The FX-2PIF has a rugged design offering a
small overall size and a convenient hanging hook for temporary mounting.
Selection of PC Type
The FX-2PIF can work with all FX series and A series programmable
controllers. However, the FX-2PIF must first be configured for use with
the desired controller. This is done be setting the DIP switches located
behind the removable cover on the side of the unit.
When setting a switch to ON the switch is moved up. When OFF the
switch is in the down position.
