A register is a place in the RMC memory that stores data. The registers in the RMC are 32 bits and are any of the following data types:
The Register Maps list the addresses of all the registers in the RMC70 and RMC150. Typically, you will need to use the register map to find addresses or registers when setting up communications with the RMC from a host controller such as a PLC. The register map also include links to detailed descriptions of each register.
Each register in the RMC can be addressed with several address types, such as Allen-Bradley, Modbus, and Omron. Some register addresses are displayed in RMCTools, such as in the Axis Tools, Indirect Data Map, and the Variable Table. To view those addresses in various formats, right-click the address and choose Address Formats.
When referencing registers from within the RMC, such as in user programs, you do not need to use an address. You can use tag names instead. Tag names are given in the topic for each register.
For each register, the register map provides addresses in the formats listed below. The address type you use will depend on the communication method you use. For more details on the addressing formats, see the respective topics.
