The NSH5 does not have the option of variable exchange. But it is possible to use the NSH5 with a CJ1W-SCU42.
Principle of operation is to specify the SYSMAC variable to an equal address of the NSH5 variable.
Note: Consider the two variables ( NJ and NSH5) if there are changes made in one of them.

Intro of Steps
  1. Create a Project.
  2. CPU Configuration.
  3. CJ1W-SCU42 Parameter settings.
  4. Programming, Internal Variables.
  5. NSH5 Hand-held Programmable Terminal.

: Port settings = User settings
: Serial communication mode = NT Link (1:N)
: Data length = 7 bits
: Stop bits = 2 bits
: Parity = Even
: Baud rate = High-Speed NT Link
