How much current is available on the USB ports of the Com'X 200?

Issue:
A user wants to use a USB device with the Com'X 200 and needs to know how much current can be supplied to their device.

Product Line:
COM'X200
EBX200

Evironment:
USB on the COM'X200

Cause:
The current available on the USB 2.0 ports has a defined limit, and is not the same on all ports.

Resolution:
There are three USB ports on the Com'X 200. In the Metering and Data Acquisition System Instruction sheet (Document Reference: 253534170), the USB ports are labeled "USB port", USB1 port", and "USB2 port".

The "USB port" is on the front face of the device, and can source 500mA (milli amp) of current.

Behind the front cover, the "USB1 port" is facing to the side and can source 100mA of current.

Also behind the front cover and facing forward, the "USB2 port" can source 500mA of current.

How to control drive relays by fieldbus when IMC card is present ?

When an ATV71 holds an IMC card, it is not possible to control its relays by fieldbus.
This is because of the cyclic exchanges between the IMC card and the resident drive: relays are controlled by the IMC card only and it is not possible for a remote PLC to write register OL1R (drive logical outputs).

The register OL1R (logical address 5212) have to be "protected" against IMC card accesses.
This can be done thanks to 3 internal registers:
Register 39003 = 5212 (address of OL1R, to be protected from write requests)
Register 39001 = 0x400 (bit10 means "channel to be inhibited = IMC card")
Register 39023 = 2 (to enable protection. Write 3 to deactivate the protection).

These 3 registers can be written at each IMC boot thanks to "Drive_Start" POU in the IMC project template. Function "DriveParameterWrite1" has to be used to write these registers.

Note that register 39023 value is always 0 even if the value 2 or 3 has just been written to it.

Input count range for the ADU205 Compact I/O module changes after converting from an A145 to a E275.

Goals and Symptoms

Why does the Input count range for the ADU205 Compact I/O module change after converting from
a Compact 984-A145 PLC to a Compact 984-E275 PLC.

Facts and Changes

The input count range for the ADU205 Compact IO module is defined as 2049-6143 for an input range of
-20mA to +20mA. When the PLC type is changed to 984-E275, the input count range is changed and the
module input irange s no longer valid for the application.

Causes and Fixes

According to the 'Modicon A120 Seris I/O Modules User Guide', this is a normal behavior for the module.
The problem is due to the different input resolution used for the 984-E2xx Compact PLC.

To resolve the problem:

  • Open the rack view
  • Click on the BADU205 module in the rack view.
  • Clcik on the button that is located next to the 'Card Config' textbox.



1.) Selecti the option for 13-bits resolution with the channel configured as -20mA/+20mA. This will provide an
equivalent input count range with that obtained from the Compact A145 PLC..

STB Module Logic Bus Current Requirements

Goals and Symptoms

The purpose of this resolution is to provide information sources for STB module logic bus current consumption values used by Advantys Configuration Software v4.0.

Facts and Changes

This information can be found:
1. On line in v4.0 configuration software under Hardware Help in the Advantys STB Planning and Installation folder section highlighted below.



2. On line in v4.0 configuration software under Hardware Help. The four folders shown have logic bus current consumption values in individual modules Specification sections.



3. On Pl@net in the Advantys STB Technical publications listing.



The Advantys STB System Planning and Installation Guide, p/n 31002947 has information in the same location as the online version, ie: under STB Module Operating Temperature Ranges.

4. On Pl@net in the Advantys STB Technical publications listing. STB module manuals have logic bus current consumption values in the individual modules Specification sections.

Pl@net manuals are:

Analog I/O Modules Reference Guide 31007715
Digital I/O Modules 31007720
Special Modules Reference Guide 31007730
Counter Modules 31007725

There are errors in the System Planning and Installation Guides, Special Modules Reference Guides and Analog Module Reference Guides.

Online and Pl@net versions of the System Planning and Installation Guide incorrectly lists:
- STBXBE2100 current as 1mA (should be 100mA).

Online and Pl@net versions of the Special Modules Reference Guide:
- do not have bus current listed for the STBXBE1100 (25mA).

Online and Pl@net versions of the Analog Module Reference Guide incorrectly lists
- STBACO0120 current as 210mA (should be 155mA)

Attached is a quick reference listing of STB module logic bus current requirements.

Issue:

What are the basic troubleshooting steps for the Back-UPS Connect model BGE50ML / BGE50ML-CA?

Product Line:

APC Back-UPS Connect

Environment: 

BGE50ML, BGE50ML-CA

Cause:

During normal operation, you may find your UPS not functioning as expected. This may be due to a malfunction, configuration issue, or the install environment.
This document will assist you with basic troubleshooting steps.

Resolution:
 
Problem and Possible Cause Solution
 
Problem: The UPS will not turn on
The UPS has not been turned on. Press the POWER ON button.
The UPS is not connected to AC power, there is no AC power available at the wall outlet, or the AC power is experiencing a brownout or over voltage condition. Make sure the battery has been inserted into the UPS when attempting to turn on the UPS without AC power. In the event that the UPS receives no AC power and the battery is connected, a cold-start can be initiated. Press and hold the POWER button until the UPS emits two beeps.
 
Problem: The UPS is on, the POWER button illuminated red
The battery is worn or needs repair. Contact Schneider Electric IT (SEIT) Technical Support for more in depth troubleshooting.
  • BGE50ML = M12USWH
  • BGE50ML-CA = M12USWH-CA
 
Problem: Connected equipment loses power
 A UPS overload condition has occurred.
Remove all nonessential equipment connected to the outlets. One at a time reconnect equipment to the UPS.
 
The UPS battery is completely discharged.  Connect the UPS to AC power and allow the battery to recharge for eight hours
Connected equipment does not accept the step-approximated sine waveform from the UPS. The output waveform is intended for computers and peripheral devices. It is not intended for use with motor driven equipment.
The UPS may require service. Contact SEIT Technical Support for more in depth troubleshooting.  
 
Problem: USB charging stops and the POWER button LED alternately illuminates green / amber
The USB port on the UPS is overloaded or has encountered an error. Disconnect device from the USB port on the UPS. USB charging will resume when the LED turns green. Contact SEIT Technical Support if the LED continues to alternate green / amber
 
Problem: USB charging stops and the battery pack capacity indicators LEDs all flash simultaneously
One or two USB ports on the mobile power pack is overloaded or has encountered an error. Disconnect device(s) from the USB port(s) on the mobile power pack. When the mobile power pack is not paired with the UPS the power pack will enter safe mode if the USB error has not been resolved within 30 seconds.
 
Problem: The Back-UPS has an inadequate battery runtime
• The battery is not fully charged.

• The battery is near the end of useful life and should be replaced.
Leave the Back-UPS connected to AC power for 16 hours while the battery charges to full capacity.

Note: As a battery ages, the runtime capability decreases. See Troubleshooting to order replacement batteries.
  • BGE50ML = M12USWH
  • BGE50ML-CA = M12USWH-CA
 
Problem: USB charging is slow
Charging a device using the UPS's USB charger is slower than the device's original USB charger The amount of power a device draws depends on its compatibility with the USB Battery Charging Specification 1.2. Compatible devices can draw more power than devices that are less compatible. For devices that can charge using input greater than 1A make sure that the device is connected to the 2.4A USB charging port.
 
Problem: Battery charging is slow
The charging time of battery varies depending on the charging connection. Charge the battery inside the UPS for best results. Using the micro-USB port to charge the battery will require more time. The speed is also dependent on the type of USB charger. Some USB chargers support 1A and others up to 2.4A. More powerful chargers will reduce the time required. USB ports on a PC can also charge the battery but older PCs only support 500mA which will result in even more time to charge.
