Mounting block to suit PDL 698 worktop socket ?

Code = PDL 567S

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

How much power is dissipated by the high end Quantum PLCs?

This can be calculated as Bus Current * Bus Voltage.

140 CPU 651 50 -> 2160mA * 5V = 10.8W
140 CPU 651 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W

140 CPU 651 60S-> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W
140 CPU 652 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W
140 CPU 658 60 -> 2760mA * 5V = 13.8W

140 CPU 670 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
140 CPU 671 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
140 CPU 671 60S-> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

140 CPU 672 60 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W
140 CPU 672 61 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

140 CPU 678 61 -> 2500mA * 5V = 12.5W

To calculate BTU you can take the wattage and multiply it by 3.4144.

STBNIP2212 Loses Modbus Communications Under a Specific Condition

Release Notice

The purpose of this resolution is to inform users of STB Ethernet NIM's (Modbus TCP and Ethernet/IP) of a communication issue that may occur under a specific condition.

Goals and Symptoms

If an STBNIP2212 was powered on for 828 consecutive days, it would lose Modbus communications for 20 minutes, recover on its own and will not fault again with this behavior for another 828 days.

Facts and Changes

PRODUCTS Affected

    • STBNIP2212 RoHs versions (RoHs versions are identified with an SV equal to or greater than 2.70)
      • RoHs is the acronym for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS, also known as Directive 2002/95/EC, originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic PRODUCTS. The substances banned under RoHS are lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (CrVI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE).
    • STBNIP2212 non-RoHs versions (non-RoHs versions are identified with an SV less than 2.70)
    • STBNIC2212

Causes and Fixes

CauseThe 828 consecutive days powered on relates to an internal clock value in the STBNIP2212. When this specific clock value is reached, an issue occurs with the ARP cache creating a 20 minute Modbus TCP communication loss. After this 20 minute period, the communications will recover on its own. ICMP service may or may not be immediately affected by this event but will recover at the same time as Modbus TCP communications.

How to Manage the Issue with Existing Firmware
If at any time, the NIP is power cycled, its clock count value resets to zero and starts a new 828 day operating period. This can be done during any scheduled maintenance period within the 828 day time frame to avoid this event.

Solution
New firmware for each of the 3 affected PRODUCTS will be posted to resolve this issue but a schedule for availability was not confirmed at the time of this posting.
 

This Resolution will be updated with specific Exec version details when the updated firmware becomes available.

What are the various models of Lexium SD326 and what is the difference between each?

There are four possible version of Lexium SD326 and each type is listed below with the basic differences explained.

SD326DU25S2 = 2.5 amp drive without rotation monitoring (for use with motors that do not have built-in encoder and are rated for up to 2.5 amps)

SD326RU25S2 = 2.5 amp drive with rotation monitoring ( for use with motor that have built-in encoder and are rated for for up to 2.5 amps)

SD326DU68S2 = 6.8 amp drive without rotation monitoring (for use with motors that do not have built-in encoder and are rated up to 6.8 amp)

SD326RU68S2 = 6.8 amp drive with rotation monitoring (for use with motors that have built-in encoder and are rated up to 6.8 amp)  


Rotation monitoring requires an encoder feedback cable from the motor to the drive.
Note that rotation monitoring does NOT correct for positioning errors.
It is only used to provide a means in which to alert if the motor actual position has deviated from the expected position.
Rotation monitoring creates a drive fault when the motor is out of position which causes motion to stop and sets an output on the drive which can be used to trigger an alarm if the event has occurred.

How to reduce the Battery Charge Capacity for Smart-UPS VT

The SUVT UPS normally has a charging current of 10% (FW 6.8 could be as high as 20%) of the capacity of the UPS. However there are cases where it may be necessary to limit or reduce this current. The reasons for this could be for example capacity limitations during Generator Operation or a requirement to reduce temperature in the event of problems with Air Conditioning.

Note: When this function is active, no fault will appear on the SUVT UPS.

The attached document describes this in greater detail.

Cause:
What does it mean when I get an “428 generic alarm” at my ISX-GEN-ATS Smart Gen ATS panel? 

This alarm means “water in the fuel” go to Generator for more detail.
 

Resolution:
The alarm that’s set at the APC-Schneider ATS panel display is a generic Generator alarm/ event, to obtain more description you must go to the Generator and check the alarms. Use Fault Acknowledge button to clear the alarm at the generator. After the alarm has cleared at the generator then check the ATS alarm is also cleared, if it is not cleared then toggle the automatic operation switch from auto to manual (reset) and back to auto to clear any latched alarms at the ATS panel.
 
Cummins FSR/ Generator repair tech should be called to look over the Genset fuel system and determine how to fix and clear the alarms. It’s possible you have water in the fuel/ water separator filter and that would need to be drained. Otherwise, some sort of sensing failure of this water in fuel sensing circuit. Call your Generator service company
 
 

 

How to change shift start time default values on a CM4000 series meter

Issue
User wants to modify shifts start time for kWh per shift calculations in CM4000 meters.

Product Line
CM4000
CM4250
CM4000T

Environment
Modbus register list

Cause
By default First, Second and Third shift start times are set to 420, 900 and 1380 minutes respectively from midnight.

Resolution
In order to configure the shift time, registers 6427, 6428, and 6429 need to be modified. Those registers need to hold the number of minutes for that shift to start after midnight. 

For example, if a shift starts at 1:00 am, that is 60 minutes after midnight. Therefore, the register needs to be set to 60.

First, Second and Third shift start times may be changed as required. To modify those values, the following command writes must be executed to the meter:

Write 9020 to register 8000 (Requested Command - Open Setup Session)
Write appropriate values in minutes range (0-1439) to registers 6427, 6428 and 6429 respectively.
Write 1 to register 8001 (Command Parameters - Save Changes)
Write 9021 to register 8000 (Requested Command - Save Setup Session)

This will set First, Second and Third shift start times as required. The values are stored in registers 6427-6429 (Units - Minutes) as shown below.

 
Reg Name Type Units Range Notes
6427 Shift Start Time - First Shift Integer Minutes 0 - 1439 Minutes from midnight.
Default = 420 (7AM).
6428 Shift Start Time - Second Shift Integer Minutes 0 - 1439 Minutes from midnight.
Default = 900 (3PM).
6429 Shift Start Time - Third Shift Integer Minutes 0 - 1439 Minutes from midnight.
Default = 1380 (11PM).

*Note: For 2 shifts set First Shift Start Time equal to Second Shift Start Time (6427 = 6428)

What is the size of cable that can be used for the remote connection of time delayed UVR/MN module of Masterpact ACBs.

With the increase in length there always occurs a voltage drop in the cable. Refer the attachment for voltage drop values, according to cable sizes and nominal current.

So you have to consider the size and length of the cable as per the values and load consumption of UVR/MN module.
 
Standard recommendation is that the voltage supplied to UVR/MN should not be less than 5% of rated voltage, even if the MN can operate down to 0.85Un.
 
Example:
 
Time Delay UVR/MN module of 230V AC and Cable size 2.5 sq. mm considered for this example.
 
Nominal current is pick-up current that is 200VA/230V = 0.9A.
With 2.5sq. mm/1A, voltage drop is 0.8% for 100 meter (as per table attached). This means that one can go up to 625 meter without any problems.
 
It could be more but keep in mind that minimum supply voltage cannot be less than 0.85Un.

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.  


Rev 10-23-18
 

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 can cause the 4-20mA signal to latch at 20mA on the ATV61 or Eflex drives?

Issue:
What can cause the 4-20mA signal to lock in at 20mA on the ATV61 or Eflex drives?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 Eflex

Environment:
All

Cause:
Noise issues

Resolution:
A voltage surge or spike on the mA input exceeding 7.9 V on this input will cause the analog input to jump to 20 mA and to stay there until power is cycled.
If the voltage surge/spike can't be eliminated by proper cable routing and shielding, or through the use of an isolator you can install a 6.8 V zener diode (available at most electronic stores) to prevent the excess voltage from reaching the AI2 input.
Put the cathode end (marked with a line) on the AI2 input, and the other end on the COM terminal.

ION Setup Rejects ION Meter Advanced Security Password

Issue
When ION Setup is connected to an advanced-security enabled meter, the correct password is entered, but ION Setup rejects it. 

Product Line
ION8300, ION8400, ION8500, ION8600, ION8650, ION Setup, ION Enterprise, Power Monitoring Expert

Environment
Advanced security configuration

Cause
Designer was used to configure the advanced-security passwords and characters from the Extended ASCII character set were used. The Extended ASCII character set includes but is not limited to foreign-language accented characters.

Resolution
Use Designer to change the passwords so that the passwords do not contain any Extended ASCII characters.

More Information
What is Extended ASCII? A set of codes that extends the basic ASCII set. The basic ASCII set uses 7 bits for each character, giving it a total of 128 unique symbols. The extended ASCII character set uses 8 bits, which gives it an additional 128 characters. The extra characters represent characters from foreign languages and special symbols for drawing pictures

What is the part number for a replacement 9001 KS selector switch E key?

Issue:
What is the part number for a replacement 9001 KS selector switch E key?

Product Line:
Harmony Pushbuttons

Environment:
All Products

Cause:
Product selection

Resolution:
All standard replacement keys follow the same numbering system, 29411-01XX0 where the XX is replaced by the E key number. For an E11 key replace the XX with 11 for 29411-01110. For an E12 key replace the XX with 12 for 29411-01120.
For the master keyed range, E36 through E60, use the same system with the base part number 29411-51XX0. So an E36 key is a 29411-51360. Master key, E99, is part number 29411-51990.
 

Why might the Overload LED be lit on my APC Back-UPS?

Issue:

The Overload indicator is lit whenever equipment connected to the battery back-up outlets is drawing more power than the UPS can provide. This symptom is also
accompanied by a shrill constant tone. If the overload is strong enough, the UPS may shut down turning off its output in order to protect its circuitry from damage.


Product Line:

All APC Back-UPS Product Families.


Environment:

All APC Back-UPS Product Families.


Cause:

Each model of Back-UPS is capable of handling up to a certain amount of equipment. For example, the BP350U is rated for 350 Volt Amps (or 220 Watts) and the BP500U
is rated for 500 Volt Amps (or 315 Watts). Verify that your equipment plugged into the Battery Backup outlets does not exceed the VA rating (denoted by the number in the
model number of your UPS) by using APC's UPS Sizing Tool.


Resolution:

Try moving one or more pieces of equipment to the Surge Protection outlets. If the Overload Led remains lit at this point, try turning the unit off and
back on again. If you have verified that your connected equipment does not exceed the ratings of the unit, please contact APC's Technical Support.
Please be near the unit to further troubleshoot the problem over live chat.

Note: It is normal for the Overload Led to briefly illuminate when turning the UPS on with the equipment connected. When using the UPS as a "master on/off"
switch, the Overload Led will illuminate briefly when the connected equipment powers up at the same time that the UPS does.

If the Overload Led is flashing CONTINUOUSLY, this may indicate an internal fault with the UPS. If this is the case, please contact APC's Technical Support.

What is the Device Control Block used for in Unity when configuring IO Scanner?

What is the Device Control Block used for in Unity when configuring IO Scanner?

The Device Control Block is a flat address array of 8 contiguous words with each bit representing an entry in the I/O scanner for up to 128 logical device entries. With the bit set to 0, the IO Scanner operates for that entry. With the bit set to 1, that particular IO Scanner entry is disabled, and the Health bit (on supported controllers), is set to 1, representing an unhealthy state. This allows the developer to turn on or off individual IO Scanner entries based upon the state of each IO Scanner table entry bit


Why can't I acknowledge alarms from the Global Event Viewer in Vista in StruxureWare Power Monitoring 7.0?

From the StruxureWare Power Monitoring 7.0.1 User Guide:
Acknowledging Alarms
The alarm acknowledgement function is now available only in the Alarms application in the Web Applications component. See the online help for the Alarms for information about acknowledging alarms.
Every type of event has a prioritized value that identifies its relative significance on a scale of 0 (zero) to 255. By default, Vista identifies any event with a priority of 128 (default) or greater as an alarm.

Keywords: SPM, PME, Power Monitoring Expert, SPM7, AAV, active alarms viewer, cannot acknowledge all, disabled

ION Meters capture waveform of 14 cycles with 128 samples/cycle even when set to different formats

Issue
ION Meters that have been set to capture waveforms in different formats ( 32*54, 512*4 etc) still capture wavefroms with 128*14.







Product Line
ION7550/7650
ION8600/8650
ION7500/7600

Environment
Waveform capture
Ion Setup

Cause
ION meters are set to capture waveforms with 128 samples/cycle for 14 cycles when the meter is set in "Demo Mode".  

Resolution
The meter will capture waveform with the format specified once the meter's "Volts Mode" is changed from "Demo" to the relevant system type. This can be done as follows:

1. Using Ion Setup :
     a. Connect to the meter using relevant communication parameters.
     b. Once, communication is established, open "Setup Assistant" from the right pane of Ion Setup.
     c. Navigate to Basic Setup---> PT/CT Ratios---> PM1 Volts Mode.
     d. Highlight "PM1 Volts Mode" and click Edit to change the mode.

2. Using Front Panel:
     a. Press the "Prog" key from the front panel to open setup menu.
     b. Press the "prog" key once "Basic setup" is highlighted in setup menu.
     c. Press the "prog" key again on "PT/CT setup".
     d. Press the rectangular button corresponding to "mode". Use the Up/Down arrow keys to move from the "demo" option to the relevant system type and then press the "Prog" key again.
     e. Use the "Esc" key to navigate back to the real time data screen.

Why does only the first meter (base address) communicate in the Multi-Circuit Meter (MCM)?

Issue
The user can only read registers, and communicate to the first meter in the MCM

Product Line 
Multi Circuit Meter 8364

Environment
Meter installation and communication

Cause
There is a register in the Multi-Circuit Meter (MCM) that must be configured in order to enable the other meters. (By default only the first meter is turned on. )

Resolution
The register can be configured by communicating to the MCM via the RS485 port. Veris has a software package "MNode" that can be used to configure the meter, but any Modbus communication software (such as Square D Modbus Tester) will work to configure register 73.

Modbus Register 73
By setting the following bits to a "1" each meter can be enabled on the MCM, but the first meter is always enabled. When the 6/8 Meter Dip switch is set to the 6 meter mode, then bits 6 and 7 (meters 7 and 8) cannot be enabled.

1 (One) = Enable
0 (Zero) = Disable

bit 0 = Meter 1 (always enabled, always= 1)
bit 1 = Meter 2
bit 2 = Meter 3
bit 3 = Meter 4
bit 4 = Meter 5
bit 5 = Meter 6
bit 6 = Meter 7
bit 7 = Meter 8
bits 8-14 = 0
bit 15 = 0 if only reading from Meter #1
1 if reading from any one of the meters #2-8

Example: Enabling Meters 1,3,5, and 7
Register 73 contains 16 bits, these are numbered 0-15 from right to left (0 at the right up to 15 on the left).
bit 15 - bit 0
0000000001010101 = 85 in decimal format

To Enable meters 1-6 write 63 to register 73
111111=73

So using Modbus tester you would write the decimal value 85 into register 73.
(To enable all 8 meters you would write decimal value 255).
