Precautions
WARNING
Serious human hazard may occasionally occur due to ignition or rupture of the lithium battery used in
the Battery Unit. Do not short the battery terminals or charge, disassemble, deform under pressure,
or incinerate the battery.
Never use any battery that has been dropped on the floor or otherwise
subjected to excessive shock.
CAUTION
Electric shock, fire, or malfunction may occur. Do not disassemble, modify, or repair the ZEN or touch
any of the internal parts.
Electrical shock may occur. Never touch the I/O terminals, computer connector, Expansion Unit
connector, or Battery Unit connector while power is being supplied.
Electrical shock may occur. Do not remove the Expansion Unit connector cover unless an Expansion
I/O Unit will be permanently installed.
Fires may occasionally occur. Tighten the terminal block screws to the specified torque (0.5 to 0.6
N·m) so that they do not become loose.
Precautions
x
Please observe the following precautions for safe use of this products.
Circuit Design
1. All interface connectors and battery connector are live parts, they may not be directly connected to Softy Extra
Low Voltage (SELV) circuit or to accessible conductive parts.
For the programming units and Personal Computers use only the ZEN-CIF01 Connecting Cable (optional
accessory) manufactured by OMRON.
ZEN-CIF01 provides safe (reinforced) insulation between Personal Computers and ZEN.
2. Provide emergency stop circuits, external interlock circuits, limit circuits, and other safety circuits in addition to
any provided within the ZEN control circuits to ensure safety of the overall system in the event of ZEN failure or
external factors.
3. If the ZEN discovers an error during self-diagnosis, operation will be stopped and all outputs will be turned OFF.
As a countermeasure for such problems, external safety measures must be provided to ensure safety in the
overall system.
4. Outputs from the ZEN may remain ON or OFF due to faults in internal circuits such as output relay fusing or
burning, or output transistor destruction. As a countermeasure for such problems, external safety measures
must be provided to ensure safety in the overall system.
5. Fail-safe measures must be taken by the user to ensure overall system safety in the event of broken signal lines
or momentary power interruptions.
6. The durability of the output relays is largely affected by the switching conditions. Confirm the operation of the
system under actual operating conditions and set the switching frequency to ensure that adequate performance
will be provided. Insulation faults and burning in the ZEN may result if relays are used after their performance
has deteriorated.
Connecting Expansion I/O Units
1. Supply power to both the CPU Unit and Expansion I/O Units from the same power supply and turn them ON
and OFF at the same time.
2. When connecting Expansion I/O Units with DC inputs to a CPU Unit with an AC power supply, the burst noise
immunity will be 1 kV (IEC 61000-4-4).
3. Expansion I/O Units with AC inputs (ZEN-8E1AR) cannot be connected to a CPU Unit with a DC power supply.
System Startup and Program Changes
1. Check the user program for proper execution before actually running it on the Unit.
2. Disconnect the output lines from the system before testing operation in any system in which incorrect operation
can result in injury or equipment damage.
3. Confirm safety before attempting any of the following operations.
Changing the operating mode (RUN/STOP).
Using the button switches.
Changing bit status or parameter settings.
4. Double-check all wiring before turning ON the power supply.
5. Refer to Cycle Time Calculation Method on page 130 in the ZEN Programmable Relay Operation Manual (Cat.
No. Z211) and confirm that the increase in the cycle time will not affect operation. If the cycle time is too long,
it may become impossible to read input signals accurately. The increase in the cycle time will be particularly
noticeable when set values are written in RUN mode for a CPU Unit with communications (ZEN-10C4@R-@-
V2).
Installation and Wiring
1. Do not allow the ZEN to fall during installation.
2. Be sure that the DIN Track mounting levers, Expansion I/O Units, Memory Cassettes, Battery Units, cable
connectors, and other items with locking devices are properly locked into place. Improper locking may result in
malfunction.
3. When mounting the ZEN to the surface of the control panel, tighten mounting screws to the following torques.
CPU Units: 1.03 Nm max.
Expansion I/O Units: 0.46 Nm max.
4. Use wires with cross-sectional areas of 0.2 to 2.5 mm2 (equivalent to AWG24 to AWG14) for wiring and strip
them for 6.5 mm. If using stranded wires, always connect straight crimp terminals (0.25 to 2.5 mm2).
Handling
1. The environment of use of ZEN is “Pollution degree 2” and “Overvoltage category II” specified in IEC60664-1.
Precautions for Safe Use
Precautions
xi
2. Always use the ZEN within the rated ambient operating temperature and humidity. The rated ambient operating
temperature is 0 to 55°C for LCD-type CPU Units and –25 to 55°C for LED-type CPU Units. If the ZEN is used
near sources of heat, such as a power supply, the internal temperature of the ZEN may increase, lowering the
durability of the ZEN.
3. Discharge static electricity from your body, e.g., by touching a grounded metal plate, before touching any Unit.
4. The exterior of the Units will be damaged if it comes into contact with organic solvents (e.g., benzene or paint
thinner), strong alkalies, or strong acids. Never allow such substances to come into contact with the Units.
5. Do not apply voltages exceeding the rated voltages. Internal elements may be destroyed.
6. Short failures or open failures may result from the destruction of output elements. Do not use loads that exceed
the rated output current.
Maintenance
When replacing a CPU Unit, transfer to the new Unit and confirm all settings for clock data, internal holding bits,
holding timers, and counters before starting operation again.
Transportation and Storage
1. Use special packaging boxes when transporting the ZEN and do not subject it to excessive shock or vibration
or drop it during shipment.
2. Store the ZEN at an ambient temperature of 40 to 75°C for LED-type CPU Units and 20 to 75°C for all other
types of CPU Units. If the ZEN has been stored at 10°C or lower, allow it to stand at room temperature for 3
hours or longer before turning ON the power supply.
Precautions
xii
Installation Environment
1. Do not install the ZEN in the following locations.
Locations subject to radical changes in temperature
Location with high humidity subject to condensation
Locations subject to excessive dust or dirt
Locations subject to corrosive gas
Locations subject to direct sunlight
2. Do not install the ZEN in locations subject to shock or vibration. Extended use in such location may cause
damage from stress.
3. In environments subject to static electricity (e.g., close to pipes conveying forming materials, powders, or fluid
materials), separate the ZEN as far as possible from the source of static electricity.
4. The ZEN is neither waterproof nor oil-proof. Do not use it in locations subject to water or oil.
5. Use the ZEN within the allowable power supply voltage range. Be particularly careful in locations with bad power
supply conditions, e.g., large fluctuations in the power supply voltage.
6. Do not install the ZEN in locations subject to excessive noise, which may cause the ZEN to fail.
7. Take appropriate and sufficient countermeasures when installing systems in the following locations:
Locations subject to strong electromagnetic fields
Locations subject to possible exposure to radioactivity
Power Supply
1. Always turn OFF the power supply to the ZEN (CPU Unit and Expansion I/O Units) before attempting any of the
following.
Assembling the ZEN
Attaching or removing Expansion I/O Units
Connecting or disconnecting any cables or wiring
Attaching or removing the Memory Cassette
Attaching or removing the Battery Unit
2. If the power supply is interrupted for 2 days or more (at 25°C), the internal capacitor will discharge and internal
bit status and the contents of PV areas will be lost or corrupted and dates and times will be reset. When
restarting operation after the power supply has been interrupted for an extended period of time, check the
system in advance to confirm that no errors will occur.
Handling
1. Connect connectors only after confirming that the direction or polarity is correct.
2. Failures could result if dust or dirt enters the ZEN. Always connect the connector cover to the computer
connector whenever it is not being used.
3. Do not remove the label from the left side of the CPU Unit if a Battery Unit is not mounted.
EEPROM Write Life
The EEPROM has a limited write life. The write life may be exceeded if communications are used frequently to
write settings. Consider this in the system design.
Other
1. The execution of the ladder program in the ZEN is different from that for other PLCs. Refer to Appendix B Ladder
Program Execution in the ZEN Programmable Relay Operation Manual (Cat. No. Z211) when writing the ladder
program.
2. Abide by all local ordinances and regulations when disposing of the ZEN.
3. The Battery Unit (ZEN-BAT01, sold separately) contains a lithium battery. Observe all applicable legal
requirements for your area when disposing of the lithium battery.

1.1 Overview of Communications Methods
Introduction
A host computer (see note 1) can communicate with the ZEN using the
CompoWay/F communications protocol. The host computer is
programmed to monitor and set ZEN settings. This manual is thus
written from the viewpoint of the host computer. Up to 32 nodes
including host computers can be connected via CompoWay/F.
CompoWay/F is an integrated protocol for OMRON general-purpose
serial communications. Consistent frame formats and commands that
are compliant with FINS (see note 2), which is widely used with
OMRON Programmable Controllers (PLCs), enable easy communica-
tions between a host computer and components.
Note 1:Host computers include personal computers.
Note 2:FINS (Factory Interface Network Service) is a message service
used between controllers on OMRON FA networks.
The ZEN supports the following communications functions.

Overview
Transmission Procedure
When the host computer transmits a command frame, the ZEN
transmits a response frame that corresponds to the command frame. A
single response frame is returned for each command frame. The
following diagram shows the operation of the command and response
frames.
Note: Allow a wait time of at least 2 ms before the next command is
sent after the host computer receives a response from the ZEN.
Interface
Use of the following Converter for RS-232C and RS-485 interface
conversion is recommended.
Wiring
This section explains how to perform the ZEN’s communications wiring.
For details on the host computer, refer to the user documentation
provided with the host computer.
Match the communications specifications of the ZEN and the host
computer.
The connection format can be either one-to-one or one-to-N.
Up to 32 units including the host computer can be connected in a one-
to-N system.
The total cable length is 500 m max.
Use a shielded twisted-pair cable with wires of a thickness of AWG28 to
AWG14 for communications signal wiring.
Note: When using a 1:N connection, set the same communications
specifications in all of the Units, and set a unique node number
for each Unit.

2.1 Data Format
For CompoWay/F, numeric values for commands are converted to ASCII and expressed as hexadecimal
values.
Numbers prefixed with H’ are hexadecimal, e.g., H’02 is 02 hexadecimal.
The numbers below the various parts of a frame specify the number of bytes.
Unless specified, all other numbers are ASCII characters. (Refer to the Appendix for a table of ASCII
characters.)

STX This code (H’02) indicates the beginning of the communications frame (text).
Always set STX in the first byte.
When STX is received again during reception, reception is carried out again from the point
where STX was received.
Node number This number specifies the transmission destination.
Specify the ZEN’s node number.
A BCD value between 00 and 99 or an ASCII value of XX can be set.
Specify “XX” for a broadcast transmission. No responses will be returned for broadcast
transmissions.
No responses will be returned from node numbers other than the ones in the above
range.
The default setting is 01.
Sub-address The sub-address is not used in the ZEN. It must be fixed at “00.
SID Service ID. The service ID is not used in the ZEN.
Be sure to set it to “00.
Command text This is the command text area. For details, see 2.2 Structure of Command Text.
ETX This code (H’03) indicates the end of the text.
BCC This is the Block Check Character.
The BCC result is found by calculating the exclusive OR of the bytes from the node num-
ber up to ETX.

BCC Calculation Example
The BCC (Block Check Character) is determined by calculating the
exclusive OR of the bytes from the node number up to ETX. The 8-bit
result is written to the BCC byte at the end of the frame.

Timer and Counter Number Specifications
There is more than one timer and more than one counter, and so the
leftmost two digits of the address are used to specify the applicable
timer or counter. The timer and counter numbers and corresponding
addresses are given in the following table.
Reading Comparators
RS-485 communications can be used to read the variable area and
perform comparisons with the following three types of comparators.
1. Analog Comparators: Compare an analog input with a constant or
two analog inputs.
2. Comparators: Compare the present value of a timer, holding timer,
or counter with a constant or the present values of timers, holding
timers, or counters.
3. Eight-digit comparators: Compare the present value of an 8-digit
comparator with a constant.
Note: Refer to 3-10 Analog Inputs (Analog Comparators (A)), 3-11
Comparing Timer/Counter Present Values Using Comparators
(P), and 3-12 Comparing the 8-Digit Counter (F) Present Value
Using 8-Digit Comparators (G) in the ZEN Programmable Relay
Operation Manual (Cat. No. Z211) for details on comparators.
Comparator Number Specifications
There is more one of some types of comparators and more than one
analog input, and so the leftmost two digits of the address are used to
specify the applicable timer or counter. The comparator and analog
input numbers and corresponding addresses are given in the following
table.

Terms and Conditions of Sale
1. Offer; Acceptance. These terms and conditions (these "Terms") are deemed
part of all quotes, agreements, purchase orders, acknowledgments, price lists,
catalogs, manuals, brochures and other documents, whether electronic or in
writing, relating to the sale of products or services (collectively, the "Products")
by Omron Electronics LLC and its subsidiary companies (“Omron”). Omron
objects to any terms or conditions proposed in Buyers purchase order or other
documents which are inconsistent with, or in addition to, these Terms.
2. Prices; Payment Terms. All prices stated are current, subject to change with-
out notice by Omron. Omron reserves the right to increase or decrease prices
on any unshipped portions of outstanding orders. Payments for Products are
due net 30 days unless otherwise stated in the invoice.
3. Discounts. Cash discounts, if any, will apply only on the net amount of invoices
sent to Buyer after deducting transportation charges, taxes and duties, and will
be allowed only if (i) the invoice is paid according to Omron’s payment terms
and (ii) Buyer has no past due amounts.
4. Interest. Omron, at its option, may charge Buyer 1-1/2% interest per month or
the maximum legal rate, whichever is less, on any balance not paid within the
stated terms.
5. Orders. Omron will accept no order less than $200 net billing.
6. Governmental Approvals. Buyer shall be responsible for, and shall bear all
costs involved in, obtaining any government approvals required for the impor-
tation or sale of the Products.
7. Taxes. All taxes, duties and other governmental charges (other than general
real property and income taxes), including any interest or penalties thereon,
imposed directly or indirectly on Omron or required to be collected directly or
indirectly by Omron for the manufacture, production, sale, delivery, importa-
tion, consumption or use of the Products sold hereunder (including customs
duties and sales, excise, use, turnover and license taxes) shall be charged to
and remitted by Buyer to Omron.
8. Financial. If the financial position of Buyer at any time becomes unsatisfactory
to Omron, Omron reserves the right to stop shipments or require satisfactory
security or payment in advance. If Buyer fails to make payment or otherwise
comply with these Terms or any related agreement, Omron may (without liabil-
ity and in addition to other remedies) cancel any unshipped portion of Prod-
ucts sold hereunder and stop any Products in transit until Buyer pays all
amounts, including amounts payable hereunder, whether or not then due,
which are owing to it by Buyer. Buyer shall in any event remain liable for all
unpaid accounts.
9. Cancellation; Etc. Orders are not subject to rescheduling or cancellation
unless Buyer indemnifies Omron against all related costs or expenses.
10. Force Majeure. Omron shall not be liable for any delay or failure in delivery
resulting from causes beyond its control, including earthquakes, fires, floods,
strikes or other labor disputes, shortage of labor or materials, accidents to
machinery, acts of sabotage, riots, delay in or lack of transportation or the
requirements of any government authority.
11. Shipping; Delivery. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in writing by Omron:
a. Shipments shall be by a carrier selected by Omron; Omron will not drop ship
except in “break down” situations.
b. Such carrier shall act as the agent of Buyer and delivery to such carrier shall
constitute delivery to Buyer;
c. All sales and shipments of Products shall be FOB shipping point (unless oth-
erwise stated in writing by Omron), at which point title and risk of loss shall
pass from Omron to Buyer; provided that Omron shall retain a security inter-
est in the Products until the full purchase price is paid;
d. Delivery and shipping dates are estimates only; and
e. Omron will package Products as it deems proper for protection against nor-
mal handling and extra charges apply to special conditions.
12. Claims. Any claim by Buyer against Omron for shortage or damage to the
Products occurring before delivery to the carrier must be presented in writing
to Omron within 30 days of receipt of shipment and include the original trans-
portation bill signed by the carrier noting that the carrier received the Products
from Omron in the condition claimed.
13. Warranties. (a) Exclusive Warranty. Omron’s exclusive warranty is that the
Products will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of
twelve months from the date of sale by Omron (or such other period expressed
in writing by Omron). Omron disclaims all other warranties, express or implied.
(b) Limitations. OMRON MAKES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ABOUT NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABIL-
ITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF THE PRODUCTS.
BUYER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT ALONE HAS DETERMINED THAT THE
PRODUCTS WILL SUITABLY MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THEIR
INTENDED USE. Omron further disclaims all warranties and responsibility of
any type for claims or expenses based on infringement by the Products or oth-
erwise of any intellectual property right. (c) Buyer Remedy. Omron’s sole obli-
gation hereunder shall be, at Omron’s election, to (i) replace (in the form
originally shipped with Buyer responsible for labor charges for removal or
replacement thereof) the non-complying Product, (ii) repair the non-complying
Product, or (iii) repay or credit Buyer an amount equal to the purchase price of
the non-complying Product; provided that in no event shall Omron be responsi-
ble for warranty, repair, indemnity or any other claims or expenses regarding
the Products unless Omron’s analysis confirms that the Products were prop-
erly handled, stored, installed and maintained and not subject to contamina-
tion, abuse, misuse or inappropriate modification. Return of any Products by
Buyer must be approved in writing by Omron before shipment. Omron Compa-
nies shall not be liable for the suitability or unsuitability or the results from the
use of Products in combination with any electrical or electronic components,
circuits, system assemblies or any other materials or substances or environ-
ments. Any advice, recommendations or information given orally or in writing,
are not to be construed as an amendment or addition to the above warranty.
See http://oeweb.omron.com or contact your Omron representative for pub-
lished information.
14. Limitation on Liability; Etc. OMRON COMPANIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE
FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
LOSS OF PROFITS OR PRODUCTION OR COMMERCIAL LOSS IN ANY
WAY CONNECTED WITH THE PRODUCTS, WHETHER SUCH CLAIM IS
BASED IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR STRICT LIABILITY.
Further, in no event shall liability of Omron Companies exceed the individual
price of the Product on which liability is asserted.
15. Indemnities. Buyer shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron Companies and
their employees from and against all liabilities, losses, claims, costs and
expenses (including attorney's fees and expenses) related to any claim, inves-
tigation, litigation or proceeding (whether or not Omron is a party) which arises
or is alleged to arise from Buyer's acts or omissions under these Terms or in
any way with respect to the Products. Without limiting the foregoing, Buyer (at
its own expense) shall indemnify and hold harmless Omron and defend or set-
tle any action brought against such Companies to the extent based on a claim
that any Product made to Buyer specifications infringed intellectual property
rights of another party.
16. Property; Confidentiality. Any intellectual property in the Products is the exclu-
sive property of Omron Companies and Buyer shall not attempt to duplicate it
in any way without the written permission of Omron. Notwithstanding any
charges to Buyer for engineering or tooling, all engineering and tooling shall
remain the exclusive property of Omron. All information and materials supplied
by Omron to Buyer relating to the Products are confidential and proprietary,
and Buyer shall limit distribution thereof to its trusted employees and strictly
prevent disclosure to any third party.
17. Export Controls. Buyer shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and
licenses regarding (i) export of products or information; (iii) sale of products to
“forbidden” or other proscribed persons; and (ii) disclosure to non-citizens of
regulated technology or information.
18. Miscellaneous. (a) Waiver. No failure or delay by Omron in exercising any right
and no course of dealing between Buyer and Omron shall operate as a waiver
of rights by Omron. (b) Assignment. Buyer may not assign its rights hereunder
without Omron's written consent. (c) Law. These Terms are governed by the
law of the jurisdiction of the home office of the Omron company from which
Buyer is purchasing the Products (without regard to conflict of law princi-
ples). (d) Amendment. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between
Buyer and Omron relating to the Products, and no provision may be changed
or waived unless in writing signed by the parties. (e) Severability
. If any provi-
sion hereof is rendered ineffective or invalid, such provision shall not invalidate
any other provision. (f) Setoff. Buyer shall have no right to set off any amounts
against the amount owing in respect of this invoice. (g) Definitions. As used
herein, “including” means “including without limitation”; and “Omron Compa-
nies” (or similar words) mean Omron Corporation and any direct or indirect
subsidiary or affiliate thereof.
Certain Precautions on Specifications and Use
1. Suitability of Use. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for conformity
with any standards, codes or regulations which apply to the combination of the
Product in the Buyer’s application or use of the Product. At Buyer’s request,
Omron will provide applicable third party certification documents identifying
ratings and limitations of use which apply to the Product. This information by
itself is not sufficient for a complete determination of the suitability of the Prod-
uct in combination with the end product, machine, system, or other application
or use. Buyer shall be solely responsible for determining appropriateness of
the particular Product with respect to Buyer’s application, product or system.
Buyer shall take application responsibility in all cases but the following is a
non-exhaustive list of applications for which particular attention must be given:
(i) Outdoor use, uses involving potential chemical contamination or electrical
interference, or conditions or uses not described in this document.
(ii) Use in consumer products or any use in significant quantities.
(iii) Energy control systems, combustion systems, railroad systems, aviation
systems, medical equipment, amusement machines, vehicles, safety equip-
ment, and installations subject to separate industry or government regulations.
(iv) Systems, machines and equipment that could present a risk to life or prop-
erty. Please know and observe all prohibitions of use applicable to this Prod-
uct.
NEVER USE THE PRODUCT FOR AN APPLICATION INVOLVING SERIOUS
RISK TO LIFE OR PROPERTY OR IN LARGE QUANTITIES WITHOUT
ENSURING THAT THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO
ADDRESS THE RISKS, AND THAT THE OMRON’S PRODUCT IS PROP-
ERLY RATED AND INSTALLED FOR THE INTENDED USE WITHIN THE
OVERALL EQUIPMENT OR SYSTEM.
2. Programmable Products. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for the
user’s programming of a programmable Product, or any consequence thereof.
3. Performance Data. Data presented in Omron Company websites, catalogs
and other materials is provided as a guide for the user in determining suitabil-
ity and does not constitute a warranty. It may represent the result of Omron’s
test conditions, and the user must correlate it to actual application require-
ments. Actual performance is subject to the Omron’s Warranty and Limitations
of Liability.
4. Change in Specifications. Product specifications and accessories may be
changed at any time based on improvements and other reasons. It is our prac-
tice to change part numbers when published ratings or features are changed,
or when significant construction changes are made. However, some specifica-
tions of the Product may be changed without any notice. When in doubt, spe-
cial part numbers may be assigned to fix or establish key specifications for
your application. Please consult with your Omron’s representative at any time
to confirm actual specifications of purchased Product.
5. Errors and Omissions. Information presented by Omron Companies has been
checked and is believed to be accurate; however, no responsibility is assumed
for clerical, typographical or proofreading errors or omissions.
