Printing a Label to Identify I/O Channels

You print labels to identify I/O channels on the placard of an I/O module much the same way you label circuits on an electrical panel. You accept the default names for the I/O point labels or customize the I/O point names for your own application.

Note:

If a Module ID is Null, you cannot print the label. If a channel is Null, the I/O point labels do not display in the Print IO Module Labels dialog box.

To print a label to identify I/O channels
  1. In WorkStation, in the System Tree pane, expand the IO Bus on an automation server.

  2. In the List View , right-click the Central IO module, AS-B onboard IO, the entire IO Bus folder, or multiple Central IO modules.

  3. Click Print IO module labels .

  4. In the Print IO Module Labels dialog box, select Blank Label Text to print labels with only the channel number with no additional label text.

    Note:

    The label text prints in red if the text is too long to fit on the label.

  5. In the Paper Type box, select a paper type.

  6. Click Print to print the I/O module label or Save to save any changes to the point’s label text property.

  7. For AS-B onboard I/O, cut along the dotted lines and fold the label along the fold edge to fit on the placard.

The label is properly sized to fit on the placard of the I/O module.
