MicroLogix 1400 “Modbus RTU” Omron E5CC Tutorial

Written by

Hello friends!
Monitoring and storing temperature in factories and machines is increasingly necessary in today’s factories, today will guide you to use the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1400 PLC to connect and control Omron E5CC Temperature Controller

The PLC model uses is MicroLogix 1400 “1766-L32BXB” and Omron “E5CC-RX2ASM-802”. You must use Omron E5CC Controller with R485 support to be able to use Modbus-RTU

+ You can use Module 1763-NC01 to easily connect or connect directly to the RS485 port of MicroLogix 1400 (MiniDIN 8Pin – Female)

+ If the communication distance is >50m, there is no need to use a 120Ω Terminal Resistor

Omron E5CC Modbus RTU Configuration

To be able to control Omron E5CC with “Modbus RTU”, we need to set the parameters as shown in the table below:

Omron E5CC Registers Table
Note: MicroLogix 1400 Address = “VFD Address (Dec) + 1

>>> Set Temperature Address = 2103 (hex) + 1
= 8451 (dec) + 1 = 8452

>>> Read Temperature Present Address = 2000 (hex) + 1
= 8192 (dec) + 1 = 8193

MicroLogix 1400 “Modbus-RTU” Setting

We need to configure the communication parameters for the PLC to be the same as those installed for the E5CC Controller
