The Altistart 48(ATS48) series of soft starters by Square D allows for consistent start/stop rates that are independent of motor loads. These devices are more advanced than the standard drives that cannot control the applied motor torque. Featuring contact wiring and control, the soft starter allows for near-seamless integration with existing operations. Many preset parameters are included with the device and they cover a large spectrum of operations. Additional parameters may also be loaded up to meet specific needs. Available power ratings include:
3 – 200 HP @ 208VAC, 60 Hz
5 – 250 HP @ 230VAC, 60 Hz
10 – 500 HP @ 460VAC, 60 Hz
15 – 600 HP @ 575VAC, 60Hz
The ATS48 series features a dual configuration of two motors which allows for a cascaded start/stop in many operations. Using the Torque Control System(TCS) the unit can minimize wear on gears which allows for less time servicing the unit.
The Altistart 48 series takes advantage of the PowerSuite™ software for programming of your drive or soft starter. With this software, you will be able to monitor and document all of your operations. Configurations are easily saved via hard disk, CD-ROM, flash memory, etc. Using Ethernet technology, the user is able to configure and monitor operations on the go, and a constant feed of information allows for real-time opportunity to modify and adjust configuration files on the fly.
Troubleshooting can be an issue for people when so many different things are going on. It just isn’t feasible to stop operations every time an error occurs. Below is a list of fault codes for the ATS48 Soft Start series that will help determine most issues:

Human Machine Interfaces, or HMI’s, are used extensively throughout the world to control and monitor automated machinery. These devices provide touchpad and visual interaction to control manufacturing processes and perform daily tasks. One of the most recognized HMI devices is the Automated Teller Machine (ATM). These ATM devices intuitively interface with users through a keypad and monitor to readily transact bank deposits and dispense cash withdrawals. They provide reliable 24-hour access to our daily banking needs.
Various HMI devices are common throughout industry. Many older HMI devices contain the original Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitor technology. This older technology burdens the users and owner with several disadvantages:
High Energy Consumption – The CRT technology is not considered energy efficient. It requires more power to operate than the newer LCD technology. CRT screens consume 3 – 4 times the energy when compared to the LCD screens.
Expensive to maintain – CRT repairs are becoming more specialized and expensive as the workforce transitions to the newer technologies.
Obsolete Components – CRT technology is outdated and beyond its life cycle. Components required to support repair are becoming obsolete and expensive if available.
Avoid costly new operator interface packages – MRO upgrades to LCD technology maintain the interface packages with your existing equipment (frames, communication connections, power sources, etc.). Updated HMI’s from MRO are plug-n-play.
Better Reliability – Heat generated by the CRT technology often shortens the life of the electrical circuit components. CRT monitors tend to have a life of 18,000 to 20,000 hours. LCD monitors provide more than 100,000 hours life.
Clarity of Picture, Crisp Image – LCD’s make the screen burn often associated with CRT’s a thing of the past. LCD image display is much clearer for the operator and will not fade.
MRO provides an HMI service to update your old CRT displays to LCD technology and new keypads. This approach is a low-cost upgrade to superior technology with no risks. Visit our repair page, call us, or email us for an instant quote on fixing, swapping, or purchasing your new HMI device.
Automation Cleanup Procedures for Flood Damages in TX & LA
MRO Electric is determined to provide the best service and support to businesses affected by Hurricane Harvey during these difficult times as they resume operation and employees get back to work.
Water-immersed electronic devices and motors in automation systems need appropriate treatment after flood water subsides. We have compiled information we learned from our past flood relief activities below, which we think our customers affected by Harvey may find useful.
We also have the capability to wash and test the amplifiers and printed circuit boards at our repair facilities.
Recovering Industrial Electronics from Flood Damage
If the CNC and related equipment are treated properly after being soaked with flood water, it is possible to reduce or even recover from the damage. The purpose of this section is to describe proper post-flood treatment.
Things to keep in mind:
In case of flood, do not open cabinets and units. It is better to wait until the flood water recedes.
If it is possible to drain actively, the early drainage can reduce the damage.
Outline of the procedure after flood water recedes is as follows:
Remove batteries & cables
Wash the units
Dry the units
Check the insulation resistance
Check the functionality (Performed by MRO Electric’s engineers)
Remove batteries & cables
In order to minimize a damage to unit, please perform following at first:
Please remove battery cables from units and PCBs (Printed Circuit Board) as soon as possible. Flooded batteries may cause rust damage to PCB’s circuitry and could result in irreparable PCB damage. Removing the batteries will result in loss of CNC data, but it is necessary to protect the hardware from further damage.
Remove cables before washing. Please properly tag or mark so you will be able to connect cables back correctly.
Washing the Units
Wash the units according to the procedure below as soon as possible. Damage will worsen if washing is delayed.
Unit – Floodwater often contains contaminates such as dirt and oil. This could stick to the unit and could become difficult to remove. Use a neutral detergent, such as multipurpose kitchen detergent, tap water, and nylon brush (do not use a metal brush) to clean them as much as possible. Use a small brush such as a toothbrush and clean the entire unit with specific attention to connectors and sockets.
Relays – If relays have water inside, please open the case and clean inside. (If the case cannot be opened, you will need to replace it.)
Transformers – It is not possible to clean inside a transformer coil, however, please clean the unit as much as possible especially around the electrical terminals.
Cables – Connector housings will contain flood water. Please disassemble the connectors to drain any water, clean them, and then dry by hanging the cable with the connector at the bottom. (It is also possible that flood water also enters between cable strands). Please be mindful of this.
Servo and Spindle Motors – These motors cannot be disassembled by the customer.
Please have MRO Electric’s engineers clean these parts. If you see waters entering inside the cover on the motor, the cover may be removed to release the water and carefully clean around the feedback assembly.
Motor Drive Units – Please use flowing water to clean the motor drive units. Please refrain from submerging the unit during cleaning.
After washing, please remove as much water as possible and let then dry. The electrical resistance is lower due to the moisture, so please do not attempt to mount or apply electrical power until the unit is completely dry. It will take a long time if you just leave the unit at room temperature. Transformers, especially, will require a few months if not dried to high temperature. It is necessary to use a high heat to evaporate the humidity inside the transformer.
It is possible to gain enough insulation back in a few hours if you can use a drying oven with enough high heat. However, please be careful if the temperature is too high, it may melt the insulation material. A vacuum type drying oven may be useful for this type of equipment.
Here are a few examples of temperature and drying time for FANUC products, after removing as much water as possible by hand:
· Servo Transformer – In 120 degree C (248 degrees F) for 8 hours
· Servo Motors – In 80 degree C (176 degrees F) for 12 hours (with Pulse coder removed)
· PCB (Printed Circuit Boards) – In 60 degree C (140 degrees F) for 1 hour.
Without a Drying Oven
Please prepare a fanned heater. It is a good idea to use a hair dryer to send heated air (around 140 degrees F is desirable). Please be careful as it may become too hot if you send the air directly to the unit. PCB and units may be dried in a half, to one full day, but the transformer may take a few days.
Check the Insulation Resistance
It is very important that insulation resistance is tested before applying power.
Transformer – Measure the insulation resistance using 500V Megameter between coils, and between coil and metals such as core. The measurement should be 10 Megohm or more.
Servo Motors and Spindle Motors – Measure the insulation resistance between the motor windings and ground. The measurement should be 10 Megohm or more. Please note that the encoders may be damaged by the flood water. Please open the motor case and check. If you see the sign of entering the water, the encoders may need to be replaced.
Check the Functionality
MRO Electric engineers and machine tool builder engineers may need to work in sync because machine side repair and adjustment will also be required. If the insulation resistance is adequate, then the unit may be installed. Confirm all cable connections and wiring, then apply power and confirm the operation. If insulation is not sufficiently recovered due to insufficient drying, there is a possibility of ignition due to short circuit or heat generation, so pay attention to the generation of smell and smoke for a while after energization, immediately turn off the power when there is an abnormality.
If parameters were lost and a recent back up is not readily available, it is our recommendation to contact the machine tool builder to assist you. They will also be able to assist in any machine side adjustments and/or set up procedures before the final operation is started.
Our goal is to quickly and safely return your machine back into production. Do not hesitate to contact MRO Electric if you believe your equipment is damaged and is in need of testing and/or repair, or if you require a replacement part.
The Schneider Electric TSXCUSBMBP is a USB Modbus Plus Communications Adapter. In this guide, we will show you how to install the hardware, configure the driver software, and use the Modbus Plus network diagnostics features of the driver software.
Important: The least versions of the TSXCUSBMBP driver to run on Win Server 2012 R2 are driver versions 8.0 and 8.1.
The TSXCUSBMBP is designed to bridge the gap between a USB connection and the Modbus Plus network. It combines hardware and software together in one simple and single device. The module has its own Modbus Plus node address which can be set through the TSXCUSBMBP driver software. This module allows software applications using the serial Modbus RTU communications to connect on the high-speed Modbus Plus network, as well as provide diagnostic capabilities to the Modbus Plus network.
Most Win32 Applications that support serial Mdubus communications can use a Modicon TSXCUSBMBP to connect on a Modbus Plus network. A VSP (Virtual Serial Port) is what redirects communications from Concept, Unity, ProWorx32 and other programs to the TSXCUSBMBP communications adapter. After the VSP is installed, it will create one serial port with the port reference as defined in the module’s driver software. When configuring the Modbus application software, this port reference is selected as the serial port for the application to use. The routing table is used to associate Modbus Slave IDs with 5-byte Modbus Plus routing paths which allow the application software to communicate with any Modbus Plus device within range on the network.
The TSXCUSBMBP’s hardware consists of a box with a USB cable from one end (which connects to the PC) and a standard Modbus Plus DB9 connector on the other end (for the Modbus Plus network). Local signalling LEDs on the top cover of the device tell you the presence of power from the USB port and the state of the Modbus Plus network – no external power supply is required.
To install the TSXCUSBMBP, you will need the following:
– Windows XP Operating System with service pack 2, or Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or greater.
– 1 MB of free disk space.
– Minimum of 256 MB of RAM.
– One free USB port or a USB Hub that supports USB 1.1 or greater.
If a previous version of the TSXCUSBMBP was installed, the VSP component of the driver must be manually uninstalled using Device Manager before a new version can be installed. After this, the new driver should be installed before connecting the new TSXCUSBMBP to the PC. After the new driver is installed, connect the TSXCUSBMBP and install using the New Hardware Wizard. After completing the instructions, you should see a message stating “Your new hardware is ready to use.” Restart your computer, and the device should be fully functional. If the driver starts up before the TSXCUSBMBP is connected, then it will be necessary to re-scan for adapters so the driver can detect it.
To configure the module, you will need to do the following:
1. Configure the Modbus Plus Node Address
The communications adapter must be assigned a Modbus Plus node address to communicate on the network. Select “Settings” and then type the address in the appropriate box. When complete, hit “Save”.
2. Configure the Slave Response Timeout
The slave response timeout is used by the module each time it sends a request from an application out on the network to a slave device. Use the manual to determine the appropriate value that should be used with your system. Select “Settings” and then type the value in the appropriate box. When complete, hit “Save”.
3. Configure the Virtual Serial (COM) Port
To do this, select “Virtual Modbus Port.” Select the desired COM port from the list available. When complete, click “Save”.
If you experience any problems while configuring your adapter, please use the table below to determine the appropriate error code given by the LEDs, if applicable. As always, refer to the user manual for more complete information.

No, you can not enable Web Gate from the Magelis screens. Web Gate has to be enabled and setup from the Vijeo Designer development software.
What is the part number of the cable used for connecting a Magelis XBTGT5330 terminal to a TSX Micro PLC?
The Magelis XBTGT terminal has two ports – COM Port 1 which is of type DB9 and COM PORT 2 which is of type RJ45
1. If using COM PORT 1 (DB9) on Magelis to connect to the TSX Micro use XBTZ968 + XBTZG909 cable
2. If using COM PORT 2 ( RJ45) on the Magelis to connect to the TSX Micro use XBTZ9780.
Can the Magelis XBTGT5330 access the timer preset value (Time data type) in the Modicon PLC directly?
No, you can not access the Time Data type directly from the Magelis. In Unity Pro, you need to use a conversion block to convert between the
Time and Integer or DINT data type. The blocks you will use are:
Keep in mind that the value of the integer or DINT is in milliseconds where the Time value could be in any format.
Why don’t my new passwords work in my XBTGT5330?
After a change is made to any security data (passwords or user names and groups) all runtime data must be deleted before the security change will take effect. During the download of the updated application, a window pops up and the “Delete all runtime data” check box must be selected.
Why is the Magelis XBTRT511 is not giving me the correct floating point value reading on the alphanumeric display when communicating with a Momentum?
If you address the alphanumeric display as a %MW that is incorrect. To read a floating point value, you need to address the alphanumeric as a %MF.
Does the Magelis Panel PC, HMIPUC9D0E01, have line out to connect a speaker?
Yes, the Panel PC HMIPUC9D0E01 have a Line out to connect an external speaker.
Can I lose my alarms log in Vijeo Designer V4.5 when power cycling my Magelis XBT-GT? Each alarm group can have 2 such alarm buffers: one for History alarm events (size defined by the “Num of History Alarms” property) and one for Log alarm events (size defined by the “Num of Log Alarms” property).
These alarm buffers are stored in the DRAM (Dynamic RAM: similar to the RAM of a PC) of the target. Therefore, if the target is turned off, the alarm buffers are wiped out. If you need them to be saved even when the target is turned off, you can enable the “Backup Alarm Group” property (at the global alarm level). This way, these alarm buffers will be stored in the DRAM and in the SRAM (Static RAM: doesn t get wiped out when the target is turned off) as well.
Since the size of these alarm buffers is limited (the maximum value for the “Num of History Alarms” and “Num of Log Alarms” properties is 10000), they won t always contain the whole history of alarm events on the target. To obtain that behavior, you can enable the “Save To File” property (at the alarm group level). This way, the alarm events will be saved into Excel files (on the CF card) and these Excel files will contain the whole history of alarm events for the corresponding alarm groups.
Is there a RS-485 cable to connect a M221 to a Magelis XBTN401? No. There is no cable you must make your own the pin out is as follows;
No other pins can be used because the M221 can also be configured for RS-232. (can not use a straight through Ethernet cable).
What is the meaning of “PLC Returned error code 02H” for Magelis Targets HMIGTO ?The error “PLC Returned error code 02H”, means that you are trying to access an address in the slave device which is not defined or inaccessible or there can be issue with communication card , cable, or communication settings done inside IOmanager communication equipment channels must be checked. Mostly the issue observed is related to register mismatch between target and slave device. Correcting this will resolve the issues.
What is the the number of candela per square meter for the Magelis XBTGTO?
HMIGTO 3.5″ = 450
HMIGTO 5.7″ = 500
HMIGTO 7″ = 350
HMIGTO 7.5″ = 400
HMIGTO 10.4″ = 450
HMIGTO 12.1″ = 450
Can a Magelis HMI communicate to a M241 SL2 using SoMachine protocol?
The M241 can communicate to an HMI via SL2. The default communication settings for SL2 does not match the settings for the COM of the HMI (baud rate and parity are different). If the settings are adapted, the communication works fine.
Below is the RS485 pinout:
HMI to M241 SL2
Pin 4 to D1
Pin 5 to D0
Can the Magelis HMIPPF7A2701 be mounted at a 45 degree angle?
The unit can be mounted at a 45 degree angle as long as the ambient air temperature does not exceed 85F and that there is enough air flow surrounding the unit.
Why does Magelis HMI tell me to change my password when I log in?
In Vijeo Designer, there is a feature called Password Management. If this is enabled, and password expiry is enabled, your password will expiry in two cases:
1) At first login and
2) After the defined time has elapsed.
You will need to change your password in the runtime with the user manager part or redownload the application again.
Can I have two Magelis HMI to the same serial port of a M238? No you cannot, there are two possibilities to realize configuration of a M238 + 2 XBTGTs.
You can connect an HMI to the SL1 of the M238 and the second HMI can be connected to SL2.
Why is there only some data logged in my Magelis HMI?
Vijeo Designer Runtime is designed to optimize storage for data logging by only creating a record when the value of the variable changes. If the value of the variable remains static, a new record will not be created (other than the initial record). Each record made is for a unique value. Vijeo Designer cannot send emails via SMTP2Go on the Magelis but is successful via simulation
When this situation occurs, it is likely the network settings on the HMI are incorrect. Ensure that the IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and DNS server are all set up correctly. Typically you can compare your PC’s settings vs the HMI’s settings to find the differences (if they are on the same network).
Can the TM2 expansion modules be used on the Magelis STU and STO? No, if you want an HMI that can use the TM2 modules you will need to go to the HMISCU series.
Is there a Magelis HMI that can withstand 80psi of pressure? The HMIGTO xx15 series has been tested to withstand 10 bar of high pressure washing machinery. (10bar = 145 psi)
Is it possible to download to a Magelis HMISCU with SoMachine using the IP address connection mode? SoMachine V4.1 SP1.2 does not support this feature. It is only possible to download using the Node name connection mode.
What methods are there to put a Magelis back to factory settings?
Use the Vijeo Designer Runtime Installer found in the Start menu under Schneider Electric\ Vijeo-Designer to re-install the Runtime.
What are the Magelis XBTGT7340 DIO output specifications?
The Run, System Alarm and Event Buzzer outputs are rated for 24VDC and 50ma.
What is the MTBF for the Magelis HMISTU855?
-LCD and touch panel of STU655/855 is 50,000 hours
–HMISTU655/855 is 2,087,918 hours without LCD screen
Can the MBX Driver V7.0 be installed on a Magelis iPC Smart box with a primary 1GB CF card?
No there is not enough available space on the primary CF card. MBX Driver requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 which requires about 150MB of available space on the primary CF card.
Can I use a VESA mount on the Magelis iDisplay MPCYT90NAN00N?
Yes. The iDisplay MPCYT90NAN00N can be mounted using a 100mm VESA mount.
Why can’t my Magelis HMI Communicate over Ethernet?
One common mistake people make is plugging the Ethernet cable into the RJ45 COM port of the HMI. First thing to check is to see if your Ethernet cable is actually plugged into the Ethernet port (it is labelled accordingly).
Is there a replacement keypad membrane for the Magelis XBTR410?
No. There are no replacement keypad membrane for the XBTR410.
Does the Magelis HMISCU support 3rd party drivers?
The HMISCUs only support Schneider Electric protocols. It does not support any 3rd party protocols. It was a Marketing decision to not include 3rd party drivers.
Can I delay the Startup on the Magelis HMIGTO?
A Startup delay can be added from the Target Properties under Startup Options.
What is the fusing recommendation for the Magelis HMISCU?
We recommend using a slow-blow, 2A type T fuse. Type T and Class refer to different characteristics.
Type T is a time-delay slow blowing fuse. They are available in a wide variety of form factors and amperages. They typically have a fast over current link for surge spikes and a slower over current link for longer overload conditions.
Which Magelis HMI models support DH485? The following HMI series support the DH485 protocol:
Is a Magelis HMISCU capable of logging data? A HMISCU is capable of logging data onto an USB memory stick. Only the Vijeo Designer part of the controller will be able to do data logging. The SoMachine Logic Builder part cannot do data logging.
What is the communication cable to connect a Magelis XBTN401 to a Twido TWDNAC485D MiniDin port?
The cable part number is XBTZ968.
What software is used to program Magelis HMIGXU series ?
Vijeo Designer Basic V1.0 and higher is used to program the Magelis HMIGXU series.
Can the keypad on the Magelis XBTGK’s be replaced?
No, the keypad or membrane on the Magelis XBTGK’s are not field replaceable. There are no replacement parts for these and it will most likely have to be sent in for a repair.
What are the MTBF’s of the Magelis HMIGTU series?
See attached for the MTBF’s for the Magelis HMIGTU ranges.
Is the Magelis HMIGTO work with neoprene gloves?
The Magelis HMIGTOs use a resistive touchscreen. The touch is activated when pressure is apply to the screen and can be used with neoprene gloves.
Can the Magelis HMI be mounted vertically?
No, the Magelis series of HMIs programmed with Vijeo Designer cannot be mounted vertically. The reason for this is because Vijeo Designer software assumes that the (0,0) coordinate is the top left corner of the screen.
Magelis HMISTU boots to the message Runtime Unsupported : The hardware platform does not match the target type defined in the application. Is there a way to recover from this?
This usually can affect the following parts: HMISTU655/855, and HMIS5T. The HMISTU targets do not have a way to recover the Runtime. It is recommended that the unit be sent in for repair, or purchase a replacement unit.
The Modicon 171CCC96030 is a M1/M1E Processor Adapter that is part of the Momentum Automation platform. It is compatible with a variety of software, including ProWORX NxT V2.0, ProWORX 32, Modsoft V2.5 and above, and Concept V2.6. It relies on an Ethernet protocol for its communication port, and also contains a I/O Bus port. The Ethernet port connector on this module looks like a Modbus port connector. Do not try to use an Ethernet adapter as a Modbus unit or attempt to place a Modbus connector in an Ethernet connector. The connectors and LED indicators are shown in the following diagram.
This processor adapter contains 3 LED indicators – RUN, LAN ACT(IVE), and LAN ST(ATUS). If the RUN indicator is Green and on continuously, the CPU has received power and is solving logic. If this indicator is flashing, then there is an error pattern if the CPU is in kernel mode. If this indicator is completely off, then the CPU is not powered up or solving logic. If the LAN ACT(TIVE) indicator is continuously on OR blinking, then this indicates activity at the Ethernet port. If the indicator is off, then there is no activity detected. The LAN ST(ATUS) indicator should be continuously green during normal operation. A fast blink indicates normal Ethernet initialization at power up. Three flashes on the LAN ST indicates that no 10BASE-T link pulse is detected and the cable and hub should be checked. Four flashes indicate that a duplicate IP address is detected, and five flashes indicates that no IP address is detected. If the LAN ST is off, then there is no valid MAC address.
It is important to note that the 984LL exec used in the 171CCC96030 will not operate in a 171CCC96020.
The 171CCC96030 has a variety of web services included. It contains a data editor, rack viewer, web page loader, and web page loader software tool. Its Ethernet services include I/O scannning and Modbus TCP messaging. The processor has 544 kB of RAM and 1MB of flash memory. With ProWORX software, it can process 80 I/O words per drop. With Concept, it can process 128 I/O words per drop.

It is important that regular cleaning of the front panel and gasket is performed. When the surface of the display gets dirty, soak a soft cloth in little water with a neutral cleaning solution and wipe the display. The gasket on the XBTGT7340 protects the unit and improves its resistance to water. If the gasket has been in use for a long period of time, it may have scratches and debris on it, which can reduces the unit’s water resistance. Be sure to change out the gasket at least once a year, or if any visible damage or dirt is apparent on it.
