PLC-based Process Control Engineering Guide
Cat. No. W468-E1-01 Introduction
PLC-based process controller is a process control system which has the base of SYSMAC SC/CJ
series. It can be adopted for both loop control which controls analog signals and sequence control
which mainly handles contacts.
By combining a loop controller and process I/O units, loop control functionality can be added onto
the PLC, maintaining the basic PLC function.When developing a system, operating environment,
such as initial setting of PLC is required, so that the PLC can operate.
Then, utilize CX-Process, the tool software of loop controller to build the system. HMI can be se-
lected from the Touch panel (NS series), special monitoring software CX-Process Monitor Plus,
and general HMI software, depending on the application.
This manual describes the procedure to build a PLC-based process control system.The engineer-
ing method may differ depending on the devices. In this manual, an example system is built on the
Loop-control CPU Unit (CJ1G-CPU**P) and HMI recommended by Omron is combined.
1 About this Manual
This manual describes the procedure to build a PLC-based Process Control system and includes
the sections below.
Section1 outlines the features and mechanism of the Loop Controllers
Section2 describes the procedure to build an example system on the Loop Controller.
Section3 provides the names and functions of parts, and provides other information required toin-
stall and operate Loop Controllers.
Section 4 describes application cases of PLC-based Process Control system.
The CS-series CS1W-LCB01 and CS1W-LCB05 Loop Control Boards, CS1D-CPU**P Process-
control CPU Units, and CJ1G-CPU**P Loop-control CPU Units help you build an instrumentation
system comprising multiple loops. A Loop Control Board is installed as an Inner Board in the CPU
Unit of a CS-series PLC (Programmable Controller).
The CS1W-LCB01 and CS1W-LCB05 Loop Control Boards must be installed in CS1-H CPU
Units.They cannot be used in CS1 CPU Units.
Please read this manual and the other manuals related to the CS1W-LCB01 and CS1W-LCB05
Loop Control Boards, CS1D-CPU**P Process-control CPU Units, and CJ1G-CPU**P Loop-control
CPU Units carefully and be sure you understand the information provided before attempting to in-
stall and operate the products. The manuals used with the CS1W-LCB01 and CS1W-LCB05 Loop
Control Boards, CS1D-CPU**P Process-control CPU Units, and CJ1G-CPU**P Loop-control CPU
Units are listed in the following table. The suffixes have been omitted from the catalog numbers.
Be sure you are using the most recent version for your area.

Loop Control Types, Functional Elements, and Versions
Loop Controller Types
There are two types of Loop Controller: Separate Loop Controllers and Loop Controllers Pre-in-
stalled in CPU Units.

Notation in this manual
This manual uses the following notation.
(cid:140)"Loop Controller" is used as a generic term to refer to the Loop Controllers in general.
(cid:140)"LCB**" is used to refer to specific Loop Controller functional elements. For example, the Loop
Controller function element in a CS1W-LCB05 Loop Controller Board is the LCB05, so
"LCB05" is used to refer to the Loop Controller functional element.
EX.) "LCB05 functional elements" is used to refer to Loop Controller functional element of "CS1W-
LCB05". "LCB03 functional elements" is used to refer to Loop Controller functional element of Loop
CPU Unit CJ1G-CPU44P, because the Loop Controller elements pre-installed in the CPU is
