Improved SYSMAC Compatibility for Easier System
Device Monitor Function
The device monitor function makes it possible to read and
write I/O memory data and display consecutive sections of PLC data areas.
This function greatly improves the efficiency of PLC setup work, including
set value input into the Special I/O Units and checks on the settings. Data
can be read from I/O memory from a user-created screen to enable application
on maintenance screens for monitoring.
Programmable Console Functions
Ladder Programs written in mnemonics can be written
and read through the NT631/NT31 screens for easy on-site system maintenance.
Full-area Access to SYSMAC CS1-series PLCs over
High-speed NT Link
Connect to SYSMAC CS1-series PLC over High-speed NT Link
The industry's highest serial communications speed
Up to eight NT631/NT31 Units can be connected to a

Essentially the same performance is achieved for NT
Links with eight PTs as for an NT Link with a single PT (for refreshing
Improved Support Software
Greatly Improved Support
Windows Look and Feel environment ensures easy operation,
allowing anyone to create screens quickly and easily. The enhanced ON/OFF
simulation function of the NT631/NT31 and easy application of existing
screen data accelerate product development and designing.
The arrow keys on the keyboard are used to move
elements dot by dot
Displays element and cursor coordinates
The window being manipulated can be displayed or no
Zooms up to 800%
ON/OFF Simulation on Edit Screen
Easily confirm the ON/OFF status of lamps and touch
switches from personal computer.
A simulated screen with standard elements provided can
include touch switches can lamps that are easily registered with the Symbol
Many Standard Elements Provided
In addition to ISO symbols, approximately 1,000 lamp and
touch switch elements are provided as standard elements. The preview
function makes it possible to select and edit these elements with ease.
Furthermore, it is possible to copy image tables or library tables
The image editor makes it possible to enlarge or

Error Log Viewer
Double-click the error message to track down the error
on the screen.
The filter function makes editing easier by displaying
only the elements you select for modification.

whenever you are not sure how to proceed. The
information you need will appear by touching the elements on the screen.
Elements can be top-, bottom-, left-, right-, or
Translation Support Utility
Currently, translation for label contents in NTST can
only be performed manually by opening and editing individual visible string
contents in NTST, before downloading applications to a different language
PT. The Translation Support Utility enables you to load the memory map image
file (.MMI) for the source language and be able to translate the new string
contents of the application and generate independent memory map files (.MMI)
for the specified target language.

Functions and Enhanced Display
The mathematical/interlock function can be used to create
screens, greatly eliminating the size of ladder programs and enabling easier
program modifications. This function allows up to five arithmetic operations
(i.e., addition, subtraction, multiplications, and division) or Boolean
operations (e.g., AND and OR) to be used on the NT631/NT31.
Example: While the machine is not ready to operate,
"Standby" will appear on the tough switch prohibiting the
operation of the machine. When the machine is ready to operate,
"Ready" will appear on the touch switch permitting command inputs.
Multi-window Display Allows Optimum Screen Application
Up to three windows can be displayed simultaneously. A
window can be moved with the touch of a finger. Furthermore, windows can be
opened and closed from the PLC using operations in the Windows Control Area.
System Program Transfer
By transferring a new system program, function and
performance can be updated without changing hardware.
System Programs Provided
For NT31/NT631 : OMRON version (Memory Link) and
For NT30/NT620 : OMRON version, Mitsubishi version,
and Memory Link version
Memory Unit Provides Easy and Immediate Screen Data
Simply attaching the Memory Unit to the back
of the NT631/NT31 allows easy transfer of screens. Up to 2 banks can be
registered and it is possible to transfer both system programs and screen
Special Utility to Transfer Screen Data
It is possible to transfer screens by using a special
software application instead of the NT Support Software. The software
application can be set up separately.
Screen Data Checked without Programmable Controller
The NT631/NT31 displays screens, such as lamps, touch
switches, and memory table numbers, without the PLC connected, to enable
The NT631/NT31 is compatible with DeviceNet for I/O
allocations and message communications, promoting further standardization.
With the DeviceNet Interface Unit (under development) mounted, version 1 or
older versions of NT631/NT31 can also be connected to the DeviceNet.
English, European, and Asian Language Support
Both European and English languages are supported by -EV1
models. Furthermore, models supporting Chinese, Taiwanese, and Korean are
available. Contact your OMRON representative for details.
Conformance to IP65F Ensures a High Degree of Resistance
to the Environment
The NT631/NT31 has a flush-surface construction and is
highly resistive to severe operating environments. The front panel conforms
6: Resistant to dust (protected from solid objects)
Resistant to water spray from any direction (protected
from water immersion)
Resistant to oil drops or sprayed oil
The NT631/NT31 cannot be used in locations where it will
be subjected to oil spray over a long period of time.
Conformity to International Standards Ensures Suitability
The NT631/NT31 conforms to UL/CSA standards and EC
Protective Cover (Sold Separately)
The Protective Cover protects the surface of the
NT631/NT31 from oil, dust, or fingerprints.
