Good afternoon.
You must configure the robot module OMRON NX-EIC202 .Delayu the following settings:
IP Address 192.168.0.3
Vendor ID: 47
Device Type :12
Product Code: 1660
Input Size (bytes):6
Output Size (bytes):4
RPI:32
Assembly instance (input):100
Assembly instance (output):150
Configuration instance:0

Advanced configuration:
I/OData Type: 8Bit Bytes
Timeout mult:Default
Reconnect:True
Major Revision:1
Minor Revision:2
Alarm:STOP
Quick connect:FALSE
RPI :32
Transport type:UNICAST
RPI:32
0-T:Run/Idle Header
T-0:Modeless

After this connection is pinged, but does not RUNNING.
Tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I assume, that the addresses, subnets etc. are ok.
Make sure that:
- the number of input/output bytes set in the robot matches the number set in the PLC (and the other way).
- the parameters (VendorID, Device type, Minor and Major Revision etc.) match the ones specified in the .eds file for the PLC

Also, if I recall correctly, in Allen-Bradley PLCs, a Fanuc robot should be configured as a Generic EthernetIP Module (or sth. like that) - maybe that's also the case here.

This describes the PLC being the Ethernet/IP scanner.

In the OP configuration the robot must be the scanner, as a remote I/O can be only an adapter.
Is the Ethernet/IP scanner option installed in the robot? Is the connection configured as a scanner in the robot?
Vendor ID, Device Type, Product Code, Major Revision, Minor Revision may be omitted in the robot scanner configuration.
The assembly instances, though, are critical, and may be tied to specific Input/Output Size.

Also, the NX-EIC202  requires certain setup before use. Is this done?

Also, set Assembly instance (output):148
And remember- input/output is the assembly instance definition from the scanner side.

Hi guys,

I have the same issue and want to know what was the problem.

Thanks.

I was setting up a NX robot a while back with an Omron.... it was a total pain

Some hardware and software combinations just will not work.

I had to update the robot software, and get special Motoman/Omron EDS files....

A call to Motoman with the card installed, and the software version of the robot could save a lot of headaches
Oh, well

In fact, everything is configurable is not difficult. Just look at the EDS file

So how did it go? Did you get the NX-EIC202 working?
We have an upcoming project where we are planning to use NX-EIC202. I did some testes and only got the input side working. The outputs do not work correctly. Seems like there some issues with the Output Assembly parameter because the mapping is messed up.  I have tried to modify the parameters manually according to the EDS file but still won’t work.
We did find out from Omron that the NX-EIC202 board we area testing right now is of version 1.0. And there is also a newer 1.2 version of the device where there some improvements in "communication with 3rd party masters". We should get the new v.1.2 this week so the testing continues then…

Also, want you to let now that I'm trying this on a ABB irc5 irb1200 robot. Not Fanuc like earlier posts.

This kicked my tail for a while until I found it buried in a manual.  For Ethernet/IP to AB PLCs, use Ethernet port 1.  Ethernet/IP to anything else, use port 2.

Where exactly is this written?

Just checked the Ethernet/IP manual, chapter 2, section 2.3.  It actually says to use port 2 for all Ethernet/IP connections.

I do know that after having set everything up at robot and PLC, port 1 did not work.  When I plugged into port 2, everything worked.  And I had ports 1 and 2 set up the same.

Hi.

I had Fanuc System R-30iB and Omron EIC-202 v1.2 IO coupler.

Properly working scanner configuration was:
Vedor: 47
Device type: 12
Product code: 1660
Input (bytes): XXX
Output (bytes): XXX
RPI: 32
Assebly instance (input): 100
Assembly instance (output): 148
Configuration instance: 199


Advanced config:
I/O Data type: 8-bit bytes
Major Revision: 1
Minor Revision: 3
(other settings with default values)
