Schneider Electric TSXCUSBMBP: Beyond the User Manual

Need a replacement TSXCUSBMBP? Request a Price Quote Now.

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.

TSXCUSBMBP Installation

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.

TSXCUSBMBP Configuration

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.

Magelis HMIs
Magelis HMIs

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;

4——–4
5——–5
7——–7
8——–8

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)

Modicon 140AVI03000

Modicon Quantum 140AVI03000 – Product Spotlight

The 140AVI03000 is a Analog Mixed Current/Voltage Input Modules that is part of the Modicon Quantum series. This Analog In 8 Channel Bipolar Modules accepts a mix of current and voltage inputs. Jumpers are required between the input and sense terminals for current inputs. The 140-AVI-030-00 contains a total of 18 LEDs. The “Active” LED remains on and green when Bus communication is currently present. The “F” indicator will light up red when an error external to the module has been detected. The green LEDs 1 through 8 will turn on when the indicated point or channel is ON. The red 1 through 8 LEDs when light up for two reasons. Either the indicated channel is out of range (1 – 5 Volts), or a broken wire condition has been detected (4 – 20 mA).

To prevent improper fault indications, unused inputs should have the + (plus) and – (minus) inputs tied together and be configured for a bipolar input range. Unwired inputs can cause invalid readings. When configured for voltage inputs (no jumper is installed between Input (+) and ISENSE terminals), a broken field wire can cause readings to be non-zero and unpredictable. The field wiring terminal must not be removed when the module is in operation.

The following figure shows the 140-AVI-030-00 Wiring Diagram.

140-AVI-030-00 wiring diagram
140AVI03000 Wiring Diagram

For external wiring, the user should supply the current and voltage sources, and installation and calibration of the fuses are at the discretion of the user. It is recommended that shielded cables are used, and twisted shielded cables should be used in noisy environments. The shielded cables should be connected to the PLC’s ground. A shield bar should be used to connected the shielded cable to the ground. If you are field wiring the 140AVI03000, the maximum wire size is 1-14 AWG or 2-16 AWG and the minimum wire size is 20 AWG.
