      SQL Reporting Services service will not start

      Goals and Symptoms

      Issue
      SQL Server Reporting Services fails to start with the following error:

      The SQL Server Reporting Services (ION) service failed to start due to the following error:
      The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

      Additional errors in the Windows System Log include the following:

      A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the SQL Server Reporting Services (ION) service to connect.

      Facts and Changes

      Environment

      ION Enterprise (IONE) or StruxureWare Power Monitoring (SPM) with SQL Reporting Services

      Causes and Fixes

      Cause

      If there are no other errors in the Windows Application or System Logs, the issue might simply be that Reporting Services is taking longer than the 30,000 milliseconds to start up, and the Service Controller is stopping the process.


      Resolution

      A simple registry key can be added to increase this timeout.

      Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

      1) Open up regedit.exe and browse to HKLM\System\CurrentControllset\Control
      2) If it is not already there, create a new DWORD called ServicesPipeTimeout.
      3) Set the value (decimal) to something higher than 30,000 ms (i.e. 120,000 ).
      4) Restart the Server and see if the SQL Reporting Services service starts up.




      If the service does not start, the timeout might have to be further increased.

      How to gear in two LXM28 drives in SoMachine?

      Issue:
      Setup function block GearIn_LXM28 so that the master and slave drives follow each other perfectly

      Product Line:
      LXM28

      Resolution:
      The NUM of the GearIn_LXM28 function block should be set to 1280000 and the DENUM should be set to 8192 (2048 x 4).
      This will make the perfect gear between the master and slave.

      What is the native resolution of the encoder counts for Lexium 28 servo drives?

      The native resolution for Lexium 28 is 1280000 counts per revolution on the motor.

      This is important to know especially when using the LXM28 in gear mode.
      The factory default ratio for gear mode is 128/10      (128 = numerator  10 = denominator)
      The equates to 128 motor increments for 10 pulses applied to the pulse train input.

      What is the factory default scaling on Lexium 28 servo drives?

      The factory default for position scaling is 128 as the numerator and 10 and the denominator.  Parameters P1-44 and P1-45 respectively.
      These values are based on the encoder feedback resolution of 1280000 counts per revolution from the motor.

      With the factory default scaling a commanded move of 100000 will result in the motor shaft making one full revolution.

      What registers is the IP address of a PM8 with PM8ECC stored?

      The IP address of the Ethernet Option Module is stored in registers 622 and 623.
      Register format:
      1st Register High byte: IP Address 1st Octet
      1st Register Low byte: IP Address 2nd Octet
      2nd Register High byte: IP Address 3rd Octet
      2nd Register Low byte: IP Address 4th Octet

      Range:
      000.000.000.000 to 255.255.255.255

      Example:
      In this example we are assuming that the PM800 we are reading has a current IP configuration of 10.168.96.17

      1. Read registers 622 and 623



      2. Convert the register data into binary format:
      Register 622: 2728 dec = 101010101000 bin
      Register 623: 24593 dec = 110000000010001 bin

      3. Convert the binary data into High and Low bytes for each register:
      Register 622: 1010 10101000
      High byte = 1010 = 00001010
      Low byte = 10101000

      Register 623: 1100000 00010001
      High byte = 1100000 = 01100000
      Low byte = 00010001

      4. Convert the High and Low Bytes back to decimal format:
      Register 622:
      High byte = 00001010 bin = 10 dec
      Low byte = 10101000 bin = 168 dec

      Register 623:
      High byte = 01100000 bin = 96 dec
      Low byte = 00010001 bin = 17 dec

      IP address = 10.168.96.17


      Note: You can use the same procedure to determine the IP Subnet Mask and IP Router Address which are contained in the following registers.
      IP Subnet Mask: 624 and 625
      IP Router Address: 626 and 627

      STBACO1225 Field Wiring Shown Incorrectly

      Goals and Symptoms


      The purpose of this resolution is to provide the correct field wiring pinouts for the STBACO1225 Analog Current Output module.

      Causes and Fixes


      The STB Hardware Components Reference Guide, p/n 890USE17200, v3.0 and current STBSPU1000 (v2.00, 1/2006) on-line help incorrectly show pin 3 of the STBACO1225 terminal blocks as output to field actuators. Pin 2 is the correct output point for this module. The wiring diagram printed on the module's side is correct. Reference these illustrations for proper module wiring;


      The following field wiring example shows how two single-ended analog actuators can be wired to the STBACO1225 module. Two separate external power supplies are needed to make sure that the proper current is delivered to each actuator.

      If you want to use 24 VDC from the islands actuator bus to power a single-ended analog field device, this power can be delivered through the output module. To do this, use pins 1 and 6 as follows

      The diagnostic display can be directed to an SCADAPack E file, rtudiag.log with the use of the FILEDIAG command.

      The diagnostic display can only be directed to a single service at any given time, and so if the diagnostic mode is already enabled in the RTU, it will have to be disabled before diagnostic file logging can commence.

      If the FILEDIAG command is invoked while a diagnostic display session is active, the following message will be displayed

      Diagnostic display already in-use

      Use RESTART DIAG to disconnect remote user

      The available commands are as follows:

      FILEDIAG [filesize]
       This command is used to enable diagnostic file logging. Filesize is an optional parameter:

      · If filesize is not specified, there is no limit to the size of the log file (rtudiag.log).  

      · If filesize is specified, diagnostic file logging is stopped when the rtudiag.log file exceeds that size. Because the filesize parameter is used as a trigger to stop diagnostic logging, a few seconds worth of diagnostic information may be appended to the rtudiag.log file after the specified file size is reached.

      Activating diagnostic file logging will overwrite any previously created rtudiag.log files.
       
      FILEDIAG 0
       This command is used to disable diagnostic file logging.
       
      A FILEDIAG request with no file size specified will be characterized by the following messages. On SCADAPack 530E and SCADAPack 535E RTUs, the /user prompt replaces c:\ in the messages.

      Diagnostic File Logging Commenced (c:\rtudiag.log). Max size not restricted

      Use command FILEDIAG 0 to disable

      A FILEDIAG request that specifies a file size, e.g. FILEDIAG 12000, will be characterised by the following messages:

      Diagnostic File Logging Commenced (c:\rtudiag.log). Max size = 12000 bytes

      Use command FILEDIAG 0 to disable

       A FILEDIAG 0 request to disable diagnostic file logging will be characterised by the following message

      Diagnostic File Logging Disabled

      Environment

      Web Applications - Dashboards

      Cause

      Under some conditions, applying SP3 to SQL Server 2012 breaks compatibility between SQLServerSpatial110.dll and the Microsoft.SQLServer.Types library. Should his happen, the DataSourceBus cannot successfully initialize which prevents all of the Web Applications expect for Diagrams and Reports from working. If this condition exists on a server on which PME is being installed or upgraded, the install/upgrade fails on 'Configuring Web Framework'.

      Further details on the Microsoft SQL Server compatibility is available at this link:

      https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/Feedback/Details/2139143

      Resolution

      *Warning: Take backups of any files prior to modifying them. Ensure the backups are in a location that will not be overwritten (i.e. the Desktop).

      Look in "C:\Windows\assembly" to identify which versions of "Microsoft.SqlServer.Types.dll" exist (see attached screen capture).
      We hope to see "10" and "11".  If so, then we can potentially force a “down-rev” for our AppMods services.
      Assuming version 10 exists,
      1. Stop the ApplicationModules services
      2. Edit the file \Applications\bin\Framework.ServiceHost.exe.config by copying in the xml fragment below just above the </configuration> tag at the end of the file

        <runtime>
          <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
               <dependentAssembly>
                  <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.SqlServer.Types" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" />
                  <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-12.0.0.0" newVersion="10.0.0.0" />
                </dependentAssembly>
          </assemblyBinding>
        </runtime.>
      1. Start the ApplicaionModules services
      2. Monitor the Diagnostics.LogEventView table to verify that the Data Source Bus initializes properly. If you have been successful, you should see a message like:
        "Completed data source initialization. The data source was assigned ID 1."


      Additional Information

      This workaround forces the ApplicationModules services to use version 10 of the Microsoft.SQLServer.Types library.. This problem has been addressed in Power Monitoring Expert 8.2. PME 8.2 uses version 12.0.0.0 of this library which does not have this problem which we force it to use via the web.config file.


       

      What is the replacement for the legacy Magelis XBTGT4330 or XBTGT4340?

      Issue

      The XBTGT4330 and XBTGT4340 are legacy HMI and no longer in production. What are the options for replacing them?

      Product Line

      Legacy Magelis HMI, XBTGT series


      Environment

      Physical Magelis HMI


      Resolution

      The XBTGT4330 is a 7.5" (320x240 pixels) panel without Video playback capability.
      The XBTGT4340 is a 7.5" (320x240 pixels) panel with Video playback capability.

       

      There is no official direct replacement from the XBTGT4340 product page, however, these are the closest options:

       

      Option 1:

      If Multimedia Video playback is not required (which the legacy XBTGT or GK panels ending with "40" had), the closest fit would be the HMIGTO4310, as it is the same screen size at 7.5" (the mounting solution will be a little different though keep in mind). This panel has more memory and a higher resolution (640x480 pixels) than the XBTGT4340.

      Option 2: 

      The HMIG3U option has a faster CPU and higher screen resolution options starting at 800x480 pixels 7" widescreen to 1280x800 pixels 12" widescreen.  

      https://www.schneider-electric.com/en/product/HMIG3U/premium-box-for-universal-panel/

      Energy Meter shows "Phase Loss" Alarm

      Issue
      Energy meter shows “Phase Loss” alarm on front display.

      Product Line
      Energy meter (EMB and EME series).

      Environment
      Installing/wiring energy meter

      Cause
      If the voltage of any phase is measured as less than 75% of the voltage on any other phase, the display will show PHASE LOSS and indicate the specific phase(s).

      Resolution
      If the energy meter is installed with the proper number of phases (see selection below to determine this) then the phase voltages should be verified. If the number of phases installed is not correct, then the phase loss alarm will be indicated in all operating conditions.

      It’s very important to know the model number of your Energy meter.  
      For example, users see “Phase Loss” error when they use EMB2043 (1 phase, 3 wire) with 1 phase, 2 wire application.

      As a result, it’s very important for users to know their application and use appropriate meter that meets their system type.  Please review the tables below for selecting correct meter.

      What values should be set for the potential transformer (PT) primary and secondary values in a CM4000 when connecting the voltage inputs of meters directly to the bus (with fuses)?

      Issue
      A user may want to know the PT primary and secondary values for a CM4000 upon initial setup

      Product Line
      CM4000

      Environment
      Setup

      Cause
      The meter may be set to "No PT" or the PT ratio may be used. 

      Resolution
      When setting the PT ratio, one may select "No PT" for the PT Primary Scale - there is no requirement to set the PT ratio if "NO PT" is chosen.

      The PT Primary and PT Secondary inputs are still available, but they are not used when "No PT" is selected for the PT Pri Scale.
      A user would set the PT ratio to "No PT" when the system voltage used by the load to be metered is the same as the system voltage connected directly to the meter (i.e. direct connect with no potential transformers used).

      The PT ratio needs to be set only when the load is using a different voltage from the meter voltage inputs (i.e. potential transformers are being utilized). Potential transformers are used when the voltage of the electrical system is higher than the rated specifications of the meter voltage inputs. The PT primary and secondary ratio on the meter should match that of the potential transformers in the field.

      Example 1: When metering a 1.2 kV system with a set of PT's that contain a ratio of 1200:120, the PT Primary of the meter should be set to 1200 and the PT Secondary of the meter should be set to 120.
      (Potential transformers are used in this scenario because 1.2 kV exceeds the acceptable voltage input threshold the CM4000 can withstand (1–690 L-L, 400 L-N)

      Example 2: When metering a a 480V L-L system, no PT's are being used. The system voltage is directly connected to the metering inputs. In this scenario, you would set the PT Pri Scale of the meter to "No PT".

      Note: If the meter receives voltage that is the same as the voltage used by the load and "No PT" is NOT selected, then a PT ratio of 1:1 would need to be used and is still acceptable. (i.e.This result can be achieved by setting the PT Ratio to 120:120 or 480:480)

      How does an ION 8600/8650 with the standard power supply option obtain its control power?

      Issue 
      The documentation for the ION 8600/8650 does not include all possible configurations.

      Product Line
      ION 86x0

      Environment
      ION 86x0 Control Power

      Cause
      How does the ION 8600/8650 derive its control power when there is no neutral conductor connected to the meter. For example: A 9s meter is configured with no neutral line.

      Resolution
      When an ION 8600 is equipped with a standard power supply it obtains its control power from the line voltage at the "Stabs". 
      It is possible to wire and power a meter with no neutral connected even though the meter has a neutral connection. 

      9S/39S, 36S/76S 
      120-277 VLN RMS (-15/+20%) @ 47-63 Hz

      35S
      120-480 VLL RMS (-15/+20%) @ 47-63 Hz 

      In a situation where the meter is configured with no neutral line the control power would be derived from 2 of the 3 phases. The voltage average between any 2 phases would need to be 120V.

      When powering the meter with 120V L-L be mindful of possible voltage sags from the utility company.
      If you require monitoring below 120V it is recommended that you configure the meter with either the standard low voltage power supply or the Auxiliary powered option.

      Additionally, the ION8650 autosenses the voltage between Line to Line or Line to neutral. If the Line to Neutral value is within the correct control power range the meter will use that voltage to power the meter. However, if the Line to Neutral value is not with int the control power range the meter will use the Line to Line value

      XW Won't qualify generator.

      Issue:

      XW inverter charger will not qualify AC generator. AC IN light blinks
      AC input qualification, overloading the generator, unable to sustain battery charging and and running loads (multi-tasking)


      Environment:

      XW 4024/4548/6048 with AC generator


      Resolution:

      1) Ensure generator is split phase 120/240, not 120 monophase or 120/208V. Voltage from (L1 to N) and (N to L2) should add up exactly to (L1 to L2) voltage
      3) Recommended, size your generator 2 times the rating of the XW system.
      2) Ensure no neutral to ground bond in Generator
      3) Connect gen output to AC2, not AC1 and open up AC2 parameters in XW advanced settings - ac settings menu
      4) Reduce max charge rate in XW
      5) If Kohler RES series generator, see  Solution 1179

      Cause:

      1) XW can only connect to splt-ph 120/240 unless converted to monophase 
      2) Potential ground loop
      3) AC2 qualification parameter window much wider than AC1
      4) Gen being overloaded by combination of house loads and XW charger.

      Can a circuit breaker be operated at a voltage less than the voltage marked on the breaker?

      Inquiry:
      Is it OK to apply a circuit breaker on a voltage system rated lower than the rating of the breaker?

      Product Line:
      MCB and MCCB circuit breakers

      Cause:
      Circuit breakers are typically marked only with a few standard voltages, while other voltage systems exist.

      Resolution:
      Yes. According to 2011 NEC article  240.83(E), a circuit breaker may be used at voltages equal to or less than its voltage rating. 
      When applied on a system of lower voltage than marked, he interrupting rating is equal to the next highest marked interrupting rating. 
      The only exceptions to application at less than rated voltage are:
      1. QO and HOM -GFI, -EPD, -AFI, -CAFI, and DF circuit breakers must be applied on 120/240 Vac systems only (they need over 100 Vac to power the electronic modules)
      2. EHB-EPD and EDB-EPD type breakers which must be applied on 480Y/277 systems only

      NOTE:  Circuit breakers marked with DC ratings only are not suitable for application on AC systems, and circuit breakers marked with AC ratings only are not suitable for application on DC systems.

      Cause:
      Parameter changes are made to RAM and not to EEPROM

      Resolution:
      Adjustments made over the network are stored to the operating memory (RAM) in the drive so it will be lost after a power cycle.
      To have the settings stored to the EEPROM the customer must set Bit 1 of the CMI (Extended control word; address 8504) to 1.
      This bit will reset to 0 after a save had been completed.

      NOTE: The EEPROM has a limit to the number of times it can be written.  This is 1,000,000 writes for the ATV312.  ATV12, ATV61 and ATV71 are limited to 100,000 writes

      Environment:

      APTF10KT01, APTF10KW01, and APTF20KW01, All Serial Numbers

      Cause:

      Unbalanced UPS outputs require a stepdown transformer to power 120v loads


      Resolution:

      This document refers to installing  the APTF10KT01, APTF10KW01, and APTF20KW01 transformers in a North American 120/240 or 120/208 environment. For installations in other regions please consult the users manual.

      The wiring block outputs are as follows:


      For domestic use, make sure that the Terminal Block Jumper is installed between the Ground Terminal and Terminal 8 on the output wiring block, as illustrated on page 8 of the user manual. Please also make sure that the input voltage switch is in the correct position.

      The step-down transformer provides 240/120 output as 2 120v hots, a neutral, and a ground. It provides 208v output as a 120v hot, an 88v hot, and a ground. The 120v hot (terminal  7) and the 88v hot (terminal 9) are 180 degrees out of phase. You will measure 208v from terminals 7 to 9. The step-down transformer is not able to provide 2 120v hots that are 120 degrees out of phase as you would see with utility power.



       Note: If your installation requires both 208v and 120v output power you will need 2 separate subpanels: a 240v/120v panel and a dedicated 208v subpanel.

      In a typical balanced load with all loads using the neutral return and the neutral is severed, the voltage from each Phase appears across each load and is added on itself. This is a typical fault condition. Underwriter's Laboratories realized that this fault condition is common and it is not up to the Surge Protection Industry to prevent these failures but in the event of this common failure, UL addressed this condition by requiring all Surge Protectors to pass a fault of 240 VAC at different current levels to simulate different loads. These currents are: 125 mA rms. 500 mA rms. 2.5 A rms. and 5 A rms. They also require an unlimited current test (1000 A rms. or greater). 240 VAC is used because most household wiring is 120/240 3 wire single phase and a lost neutral produces 240 VAC. The unit during this test has cheesecloth wrapped around it. The unit may not emit flame nor can it char the cheesecloth nor can it create an opening in the housing that exposes live metal parts large enough for a child's finger to be inserted. After the test, the unit may not allow leakage currents of > 0.5 mA from Line to Ground and Neutral to Ground also it must withstand a dielectric voltage of 240 VAC for minute between each protected mode. Our units have passed this stringent test requirement in order to get UL recognition and to insure the safety of our customer's lives and property.

      What are the specifications for ATV31 drive output relays?

      Issue:   What are the specifications for ATV31 drive output relays?
       
      Product Line:   ATV31
       
      Environment:  All
       
      Cause:    Relay specs

      Resolution:   There are two relays in the drive.
      Relay R1 has three terminals to provide a Normally Open (NO) and a Normally Closed contact from a common.
      R1A is a N.O. contact.
      R1B is a N.C. contact.
      R1C is the common.
      R1 is a programmable relay.  When programmed as the factory default, drive fault relay, R1A is closed and R1B is open when the controller is powered and not faulted. Both contacts will change state when the drive faults.

      Relay R2 has two terminals to provide a NO contact, R2A & R2C.  This relay is also programmable.

      Electrical Characteristics are as follows:
      Min. switching capacity: 10 mA for 5 Vdc
      Max. switching capacity on a resistive load (power factor = 1 and L/R time constant = 0 ms): 5 A for 250 Vac and 30 Vdc
      Max. switching capacity on an inductive load (power factor = 0.4 and L/R time constant = 7 ms): 1.5 A for 250 Vac and 30 Vdc
      Sampling time: 8 ms
      Service life: 100,000 operations at maximum switching power;
                         1,000,000 operations at minimum switching power.

       

      Can i wire multiple 30PBBP momentary press mechanisms in parallel with the 2031VETR3 time delay switch?

      Can a 3-pole breaker be used in a 2-pole application?

      Issue:
      Can a three pole breaker be used in either a two pole or a single phase application?

      Product Line:
      MCCB

      Environment:
      Powerpact and Masterpact

      Resolution:
      • A 3p breaker can be used on a 3 phase system using either 2 or 3 poles.
      • A 3p breaker can be used on a 1 phase system only if indicated by the markings as noted below.
      For reference:
      • Per NEC article 240.85: "A circuit breaker with a straight voltage rating, such as 240V or 480V, shall be permitted to be applied in a circuit in which the nominal voltage between any two conductors does not exceed the circuit breaker’s voltage rating."
      • According to UL's White book, "3–pole circuit breakers are suitable for use on 3-phase systems only, unless marked to indicate use on 1-phase systems, such as, “For 1–phase connections, use two outside poles,” or an equivalent statement. A 3-pole breaker used in place of a 2-pole breaker on a 3-phase system, such as a 2-pole breaker used in a branch circuit that is actually two legs of a 3-phase system, is acceptable without the 3-pole breaker being specifically marked."

      Powerpact P
      • The 3-pole P-frame breaker has a marking on the cover that states "single phase any 2 poles". Therefore on a 120/240Vac system, it is ok to use any 2 poles of a 3 pole P-frame breaker.
      • This breaker marking correlates with the wiring diagram markings of the M and P breaker enclosure, which shows both 2p and 3p applications.
      Powerpact L
      • The 3-pole L-frame breaker does NOT have a marking for single phase systems. Therefore on the 120/240Vac system, it is NOT ok to use a 3 pole L-frame breaker.
      • This marking correlates with the wiring diagram of the L breaker enclosure, which shows only 3p applications.
      Powerpact H and J
      • Three-pole Powerpact H and J-frame thermal-magnetic breakers are marked for single phase use
      • Three-pole Powerpact H and J-frame Micrologic breakers with standard trip units (U31X and U33X) are marked for single-phase use
      • Three-pole Powerpact H and J-frame Micrologic breakers with Ammeter and Energy trip units (U43X, U44X, U53X and U54X) are NOT marked for single-phase use.

        Processor Status Displays

        Introduction

        There are several LEDs available on the front panel of each processor, enabling
        rapid diagnosis of the PLC status.

        These LEDs provide information on:


        · PLC functional status
        · The memory card status
        · Communication with the I/O modules
        · Modbus Serial communication
        · Communication on the CANopen network
        · Communication on the Ethernet network

        Illustration

        The following diagrams shows the physical location of the LEDs on the front panel of the BMX P34 processors:

        BMX P34 20x0x module.



        Searching for Errors Using the Processor Status LEDs

        General

        The status LEDs located on the processor inform the user of the PLCs operating
        mode and any possible errors.
        The errors detected by the PLC concern:

        · circuits which constitute the PLC and/or its modules: internal errors
        · the process driven by the PLC or the process wiring: external errors
        · functioning of the application executed by the PLC: internal or external errors

         

        Error Detection

        Error detection is performed at startup (autotest) or during operation (which is the
        case for most equipment errors), during exchanges with the modules, or during
        execution of a program instruction.
        Certain "serious" errors require the PLC to be restarted while others are left to the
        user to decide how to proceed depending on the level of application required.
        There are three types of error:

        · non-blocking
        · blocking
        · processor or system

        Blocking Errors

        General

        Blocking errors, caused by the application program, do not cause system errors but
        prohibit execution of the program. When such an error occurs, the PLC stops
        immediately and goes into HALT mode (all tasks are stopped on the current
        instruction). The ERR LED flashes.

        Restarting of the Application After a Blocking Error
        To end this status it is necessary to init the PLC or to set the %S0 bit to 1.
        The application is then in an initial state:
        · The data resumes its initial value.
        · Tasks are stopped at end of cycle.
        · The input image is refreshed.
        · Outputs are controlled in fallback position.
        ·
        The RUN command then allows the application to be restarted.

        Blocking Error Diagnosis
        Indication of a blocking error is signaled by the ERR and RUN LEDs flashing on the
        processor front panel.
        The system words %SW126 and %SW127 indicate the address of the instruction
        which caused the blocking error.
        The nature of the error is indicated by the system word %SW125.
        The following table presents the errors signaled by the values of the system word
        %SW125.
