Copy the programs attached to this guide and paste them to the respective devices. These programs are created to test the communication between the Robot and the PLC.
On the robot side, the program sets outputs of the robot to 1 with M_Out, then it sends words to CC-Link outputs with M_Dout
On the PLC side, the program reads these values and moves them to its own outputs – bits to bit outputs, words to word outputs.
esults of these programs cooperating are shown on the pictures below.
