                    What is the compatibility between old D2 Range & TeSys D Range contactor accessories.

                    The compatibility between old D2 Range & TeSys D Range contactor accessories is as below:

                    1. Instantaneous additive blocks

                    Mixable on D2 or TeSys D Range.

                    2. Timers
                    Mixable on D2 or TeSys D.
                    3. LA6DK or LAD6K
                    Not mixable. You must use LA6DK on D2 and LAD6K on Tesys.
                    4. Thermal overload relay
                    Not mixable. You must use LR2D on D2 and LRD on TeSys D, because the old LR2D and new LRD have the same setting range but different dimensions.

                    The relay inside the UPS may be audible in some environments. The relay switches when Intelligent Battery Management features such as Boost and Trim are initiated and when the UPS switches to battery. This is proper operation of the UPS. 


                    Boost and Trim are Automatic Voltage Regulation features where the UPS will either boost or trim the power to protect brownout or overvoltage conditions respectively. Boost or Trim can last as long or short as the brownout or overvoltage condition will last. If the clicking becomes frequent, there may be issues with incoming power.

                    What are force guided contacts?

                    What does force guided contacts mean for Contactors and Relays ?

                    Product Line:


                    Definition needed

                    Linked contacts are contacts which are mechanically linked in such a way as to ensure that the normally closed and normally open contacts can never be closed at the same time.

                    Mechanical guiding (forced guiding) makes it impossible to close the normally closed and normally open contact simultaneously. If a normally closed contact becomes welded, it must be impossible for the normally open contacts to close when the coil is energized.
                    If a normally open contact becomes welded, it must be impossible for the normally closed contacts to close when the coil is de-energized. Also known as: forced contacts, positively activated contacts, guided contacts, and linked contacts.

                    This Forced guided contact feature is primarily required for Safety circuits and redundant control systems .


                    Reading and Writing SDOs from a M340 PLC via CANopen without programmed logic.

                    Goals and Symptoms

                    M340, CANopen

                    Causes and Fixes

                    It is possible to read/write SDOs to/from a supported CAN device connected to a M340 PLC.
                    This is accomplished by tools located in the configuration of the CAN Device while online with Unity Pro Software.

                    First while connected online and running with Unity open the supported CAN device from the Configuration tree.

                    Next double click on the device name and then on the CANopen tab.

                    To do a Read SDO choose this under the Request to send menu. Then chose the Index and Subindex of the SDO you want to read.

                    Notice the Parameter Name and Parameter Size of the SDO are displayed.
                    Press send and the current value of the SDO is displayed in the Response Received section in Hex.

                    Note: The format is LSB (Least Significant Byte) first then MSB (Most Significant Byte) last. If you are reading a double word then the LSW (Least Significant Word) is first followed by the MSW (Most Significant Word).

                    In this example the Response Received is 4D01. Flip the Bytes we get 014D Hex which converts to 333 or 33.3 seconds for Acceleration

                    To Write an SDO the process is pretty much the same with some exceptions.
                    First chose Write SDO from the Request to send menu. Again chose the Index and Subindex of the SDO you want to Write to.

                    But know the Value section is not grayed out and needs to be filled in. You must input this value in HEX with the LSB first followed by the MSB

                    Example: Let say we want to write 100.0 seconds to the Acceleration. We would need to send a Value of 1000 DEC which converts into 3E8 HEX putting the LSB first and then the MSB we get E803.

                    Press send to Write to the SDO.

                    Note: These are one time reads/writes (not continuous) if you want to continually read/write to an SDO you will need to do so via the PLC program or by other means.

                    What does water collection pan full mean and how do I fix it?

                    Issue: What does water collection pan full mean and how do I fix it?
                    Product line: ACPA400
                    Environment: Data Center Cooling
                    "The Water Collection Pan alarm means the condensate tray located at the bottom left, near the evaporator coil is full of water. If you remove the two Philips screws on the left hand side of the unit, you will be able to see a gray/silver tray. Please check to see if it is full. You should also check to make sure there are no kinks in the condensate drain line or air bubbles. The end of the tube should face downward as the water exiting the condensate tube should be able to fall freely (the end of the tube should never be submerged in water).

                    If you haven't done so already, you will want to check the condensate tube quick connect on the back of the unit to make sure it is not clogged with debris.

                    If the line is not clogged and there are no kinks in the drain line inside or outside the unit, then the pump should not take more than 20 minutes to clear the water pan full alarm. You can check the time stamps of the condensate pan full alarm and the alarm cleared message in the event log on the front display or through the web interface. If the unit goes in and out of the alarm state that would be different, but if one water pan full alarm lasts for an hour or more the condensate pump inside should be inspected.

                    One last thing would be - what your cool setpoint is. The minimum, we recommend keeping this value at is 68F/20C. If it is set lower than this then the refrigerant is going to be kept very cold and cause excessive condensation. Not only will this cause the condensate pan to fill quickly, but the unit will not cool as efficiently as there will be less surface area on the evaporator coil due to the excessive condensation. Even though the minimum is 20C the unit will typically cool more efficiently at 70-72F/21-22C, especially when considering condensation. 70-72F/21-22C are our highly recommended setpoints."

                    All versions

                    • Users configuring PowerChute Network Shutdown in conjunction with their APC Network Management Card for graceful shutdown options
                    • All Network Management Card firmware versions

                    Explanation for this setting and why you may need to selected it are listed below.

                    The Force Negotiation setting in the Network Management Card relates to PowerChute Network Shutdown clients and the maximum required delay needed for their shutdown. A safe shutdown time for the UPS is calculated differently for a UPS device with outlet groups compared to a UPS without outlet groups.

                    The Maximum Required Delay setting is going to be the low battery signal time/low battery duration value by default. Low battery signal/low battery duration is a value set only on the UPS and does not look at external variables such as PowerChute Network Shutdown clients. 
                    • For a UPS without outlet groups, the shutdown time is the Maximum Required Delay value on the NMC shutdown screen plus two minutes plus the [configurable] shutdown delay for the UPS.
                    • For a UPS with outlet groups, the shutdown time is the Power Off Delay value on the NMC outlet groups screen. (This option is not available with all UPS devices).

                      Note: Smart UPS Modular devices, with a SKU beginning with SUM, utilize bullet point #1's behavior, not #2 even though they have outlet groups.

                    For both types of UPS devices, the shutdown time is negotiated by the NMC interacting with PowerChute Network Shutdown (PCNS).

                    Use the Force Negotiation option when you change or add a PCNS client to re-gauge the shutdown time. PCNS starts with the NMC Low Battery Duration value, compares it to its own total shutdown duration and, if the battery duration time is too low, tells the NMC to increase values in #1 and #2 below to the PCNS shutdown required time plus 70 seconds.
                    1. Without outlet groups, the Maximum Required Delay.
                    2. With outlet groups, the Power Off Delay for the outlet group supplying power to the PCNS server. (Note: The value in PCNS for VM Shutdown/vApp shutdown will affect UPS Outlet Group Power Off delays, if applicable.)

                    Note: The 70 seconds mentioned is the default OS shutdown time for PCNS. PCNS never changes the NMC Low Battery Duration field value. With PCNS v3.X, the Maximum Required Delay value is never used by the NMC for a UPS with outlet groups.

                    Note: The PCNS Required time = the shutdown delay plus the shutdown command file duration. When the 70 seconds is added, the time is always rounded up to the nearest minute. For example, a total of 3 minutes, 50 seconds is rounded up to 4 minutes; a total of 2 minutes is still rounded up to 3 minutes.

                    Keep in mind that the value doesn't update immediately. This is due to the fact that the network management card is polling the minutes Network Shutdown clients and needs to time to adjust. It may take as low as a minute, and as high as six to seven minutes. A quicker way of forcing negotiation is by rebooting the card.

                    Also, note that the network management card will take the greater of the two values (low battery setting vs. minutes Network Shutdown required shutdown delay). If you set the command line shutdown of 8 minutes on the client but have a low battery of 10 minutes, the card will take the 10 minute value as the max required delay.

                    Your PCNS operating system shutdowns and UPS and outlet group turn offs follow the sequence below (illustrated with graphics), with the On Battery event used as an example.

                    With an outlet group turn off, the steps vary as indicated in the text below, and in the separate graphic.

                    1. PCNS reports that the UPS is on battery. Before initiating a shutdown, PCNS waits the amount of time configured by the user with the Shut down the system only when the event lasts this long (seconds) field, available through the Configure Events page.

                    2. The Command Files Run. When the Run Command File action has been configured by the user on the Configure Shutdown page, the specified command file executes. Its execution time is determined by the field named The command file needs this much time to complete (seconds).

                    Any event command file set up on the Configure Events page for On Battery executes concurrently. It begins after the event delay  time (set up in Run the command file only when the event lasts this long (seconds)). This event delay time plus the event command execution time (set up in The command file needs this much time to complete (seconds)) must not be greater than the execution time for the Configure Shutdown command file mentioned in the previous paragraph.

                    Note: The execution of this event command file is not represented in the graphic below.

                    3. The PCNS server operating system issues a shutdown command. There is a pause of 70 seconds until it executes. This is made up of shutdownDelay (10 seconds) and Shutdown Delay (60 seconds) in the ShutdownCommandDuration file. Do not change these values unless you have a reason for doing so.

                    4. The UPS or Outlet Group Turn Off Begins. The UPS or outlet group initiates its shutdown. The delay time calculation depends on what is being turned off.



                    It waits the amount of time indicated by one of the following, whichever is greater:

                    • Low battery duration:
                      Configure this value in the Network Management Card (NMC) web user interface.
                    • The command file needs this much time to complete (seconds):
                      Configure this value in PCNS on the Configure Shutdown page.

                    Outlet Group

                    • A Switched Outlet Group waits its Power Off Delay time, set in the NMC.
                    • A Main Outlet Group wait its Power Off Delay time plus the longest Power Off Delay time for any of its Switched Outlet Groups.

                    5. A 2-minute delay. This is built-in and cannot be changed by the user. This delay is NOT relevant to an outlet group turn off.

                    6. Sleep sequence starts. The UPS starts its sleep sequence.

                    Outlet Group

                    For all outlet groups, the sleep command is issued and this is the end of the turn off sequence. The outlet group turns on when AC utility power is restored. You cannot configure it to stay off.

                    7. UPS Shutdown Delay. Configure this value for the UPS using the NMC user interface.

                    8. Turn Off. The UPS is turned off.


                    By default, the UPS will turn on again when power is restored and the battery has re-charged. You can configure the UPS to turn on automatically or manually when power returns after a power failure. An automatic turn-on will restart the equipment that the UPS is supporting. Set this parameter in the NMC user interface by using the On-Battery Shutdown Behavior field.


                    Note: For events other than On Battery and Low Battery, the UPS or the outlet group is turned off and remains off.

                    How to I monitor NetBotz alarms using Modbus?

                    Monitoring alarms on NetBotz using Modbus.
                    Product Line:
                    NetBotz 550
                    NetBotz 570
                    NetBotz 450 (with Advanced Software Pack)
                    NetBotz 455 (with Advanced Software Pack)
                    This is just a guide showing how to monitor NetBotz events using Modbus. Modbus output is not available on the 4xx units by default.
                    In this example, I have configured a NetBots 570 with a rack access pod NBPD0171. I want to see when there is a forced entry into a rack door being monitored by this NetBotz configuration. Any supported firmware should work but in this case, I have used version 4.5.2.
                    There is no way using Modbus to know the exact error message. Based on the return values and the register maps, you can tell what sensor is in an error state and you can tell what level of event is occurring. Let me first state that this mimics the DCE modbus output and you can use the following document (at least the beginning of it) to figure out the level of alarm:
                    This is app note 156 and the link may change over time.
                    First, Enable the Modbus output on the “Modbus Slave Communications” applet in NetBotz Advanced View (AV). On a 4xx unit, you must first install the advanced software pack. On a 5xx unit, this is enabled by default. 3xx units and older version 2 units does not support this feature.

                    This example is using Modbus over TCP but there is a serial option. Please see the user manual for your unit as to how to use the serial connections.
                    Next, using the ”Modbus Slave System” applet in AV, find the appropriate pod. In this case, I am using Rack Access Pod 170 (03)

                    Click “Modify Pod Settings” and you will be able to give the pod a slave address and create a register map for all it’s sensors:

                    After this configuration, you can view and subsequently export the register map back on the “Modbus Slave System” page.
                    You will see the alarms configured this way (and more):
                    all   30992(0x7910)  Alarm #03                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor
                     all   30994(0x7912)  Alarm #02                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor
                     all   30996(0x7914)  Alarm #01                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor

                    You will also see each pod as it’s own slave. Here you can see the main unit as slave 1 and the NetBotz 170 pod as slave 2:
                    001   31000(0x7918)  NetBotz Rack Monitor 570:Ethernet Link Status                     002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Down), 1(Up)
                     001   31002(0x791a)  NetBotz Rack Monitor 570:A-Link Bus Power                         002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(OK), 1(Overloaded)
                     002   31000(0x7918)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Handle  (2)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Up), 1(Down)
                     002   31002(0x791a)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Handle  (1)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Up), 1(Down)
                     002   31004(0x791c)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Lock  (1)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Unlocked), 1(Locked)
                     002   31006(0x791e)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Reader  (2)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Disabled), 1(Enabled)
                     002   31008(0x7920)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Reader  (1)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Disabled), 1(Enabled)
                     002   31010(0x7922)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Door  (1)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Open), 1(Closed)
                     002   31012(0x7924)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Lock  (2)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Unlocked), 1(Locked)
                    Please note that each register is actually listed as 2 numbers higher than the last. This is because each sensor is configured as 2 registers. If you're looking for data on a specific register say 31000, you actually have to pull 31000 and 31001. Note the register in bold is 31010. To get the data for this sensor, you need to pull 31010 and 31011. It also shows this is the door sensor and the value should be 0 for open and 1 for closed. Knowledge base FA214410 can assist if you’re unsure how to use dual registers but it should not be necessary in this specific instance.
                    Next, when you poll for alarms, you poll register 30999. This  shows how many alarms there are. Register 30998 shows the highest severity of the alarms if there are multiple. For each alarm, you should read 2 registers back. In this case there is 1 alarm so reading 2 registers before the 30998 is 30997 and 30996.
                    In this image from AV, you can see the door is open and in an error state:

                    Upon polling the device’s IP and slave address 2, you can see that 31010 and 31011 (31011 is the important one) is reading 0. This means from the register map that the door is open. Value - 0(Open), 1(Closed)

                    Here is what that same register looks like if I close the door:

                    Putting the door back in alarm, you can see that 30999 is 1 meaning there is 1 error and 30998 is 2 which means it is level 2 (error)....the latter is defined in the DCE app note 156 linked above.

                    The register 30997 above reports the sensor. The return is 31010. This matches the register on that door sensor as shown in the register map. The register 30996 reports the actual error. This is also defined in the DCE app note. It's in HEX in the app note so you have to show the return in hex as I am doing here:

                    Note that 30996  is reporting 000E. If you check the device alarm codes here (again from app note 156), you'll see that 000E relates to "General Device Alarm":

                    So with this information, I opened a door with a locked handle and the information I pulled via Modbus shows that sensor (register) 31010  is in an alarm state of general device alarm and it is an error level. Looking at the register map I can tell that 31010 (remember, it's 2 registers on a sensor) is a door sensor and since it's return is 0, the door is open. You can also check the other sensors such as handle to see if it is down or check the lock to ensure it is locked etc.
