Creating An I/O Table On A CJ1 PLC

Assemble all the I/O modules and power supply module to
the CPU.
Initially, make sure all modules are clipped together
Once assembled ensure the end plate is fitted to far right
hand end
If expansion racks are used, connect these, otherwise I/O
table will be incorrect, if expansion is added later
If special I/O modules are used, ensure they have different
unit numbers
Switch on the power to the CPU, and any expansion racks
Always make sure power is off, and offline, before attempting to change units

Connect online to the PLC

Then select WINDOWS, followed by WORKSPACE. You can now go back to step C, and lunch the I/O table window.

From the PLC IO table menu, select OPTIONS, and then
CREATE . Initialise CPU Bus settings Y, tick both I/O TABLE and S I/O UNIT TABLE

3A Click on the + to the left of where it says () Main Rack. The rack should expand out and show all modules connected to the CPU.
3B The first  digit number is the slot number in the rack(Slot  being next to the CPU and reading left to right.)
3C The next  digit number will be the start address of the I/O module in that slot in the case of ordinary I/O (in the case of special I/O has separate addressing for each module, and varies depending on what unit is being used)
4D The next part is the full description of the module fitted. In the case of special I/O, will contain the unit number.
