Siemens Micromaster 420 Faults and Alarms

A blog we posted earlier this week about the Micromaster 420 troubleshooting referenced the Faults and Alarms list for the Micromaster series, so we decided that it would make sense to make the list of Micromaster 420 Faults and Alarms directly available. This is from the corresponding manual for the Micromaster 420 series, but it is buried within the manual which most people most likely don’t even have. Hopefully this helps with your troubleshooting.

So what is the 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1?

The Siemens 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 is a Simodrive Infeed/Regenerative Feedback Module with Closed-Loop control. This module is used to connect the drive group to the line supply. Specifically, it is used to input power into the DC link. It also provides the electronics power supply for the connected modules. The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 does not have an comprehensive overload protection. This protection must be provided by the configuration and the correct setting of current values on the control boards.

The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 forms the step-up converter for controlling the DC link voltage and allowing a regenerative feedback. This module can be used for a variety of applications, including the following:

  • Machines with high dynamic requirements placed on the drive.
  • Frequency braking cycles and high braking energy.
  • Control cabinet designs optimized for low operating costs.

This I/R module, the UI and monitoring module are located as the first module to the left of the drive group. The mounting surface of the infeed module and drive modules as well as the commutating reactors and line filter should be mounted to the mounting panels through a low resistance connector like  galvanized plates or panels.

The 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 has a total of 6 LEDs for local signaling as show below:

 6SN1145-1BA01-0DA1 Fault Codes
Here is what each LED indicates:

  • 1 LED red – Electronics power supply ± 15V faulted
  • 2 LED red – 5V voltage level faulted
  • 3 LED green – External enable signals not present (terminal 63 and/or terminal 64 missing)
  • 4 LED yellow – DC link charged (normal operation)
  • 5 LED red – Line supply fault
    • Commutating reactor not available, incorrectly installed or incorrectly selected.
    • System fault level of the line supply or transformer too low.
  • 6 LED red – DC link overvoltage
    • Possible Causes
      • Regnerative feedback off
      • Setting up operation
      • Line fault
      • PW either not operational or too small
      • Line supply voltage too high

Siemens 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3: Beyond the User Manual

The Siemens 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3 is a Sinamics S120 Double Motor Module with a 600V DC output and an 18A/18A frame size. For Sinamics S120 double motor modules, a DMC20, a TM54F, and a CUA32 each correspond to two DRive-CLiQ particiapants. This also applies to double motor modules when just one drive is configured. Mixed operation is not permissible on the 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3.  When connecting the motor encoder via DRIVE-CLiQ, use motor connection X1: encoder at X202 and motor connection X2: encoder at X203.

The 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3 must not be operated as a single drive if you are using FW2.1 or FW2.2 firmware releases. A combination of operating modes is not possible on a double motor module.

There are a number of local signaling LEDs on the 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3. The Off LED means that the electronic power supply is missing or outside permissible tolerance range. If your green LED is off, then the component is ready for operation and cyclic DRIVE-CLiQ communication is taking place. If this LED is orange, then the DC link voltage is present. If it is red, then the DC link voltage is too high. If the orange LED on the module is active, then DRIVE-CLiQ communication is being established. The Red LED signals that the component has at least one fault. This LED is activated regardless of whether the corresponding messages have been configured. To clear this code, remedy and acknowledge the fault.

If you see a green or red flashing LED at 0.5 Hz then firmware is being downloaded. When this light goes to 2 Hz, then the firmware download is complete and the user should carry out a POWER ON and wait. If you see a green/orange or red/orange local signal on the  6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3, then component detection via LED is activate. Both of these options depend on the LED state when activated via P0124 = 1.

MRO Electric stocks both new and used 6SL3120-2TE21-8AA3 Double Motor Modules. For more information or to request a quote, please call 800-691-8511 or email sales@mroelectric.com.

Siemens 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0: Beyond the User Manual

The Siemens 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 is a Sinamics S120 central control module in which the closed-loop and open-loop functions are implemented for one or more Line Modules and/or Motor Modules. The module features 12 digital inputs, 8 digital inputs/outputs, 4 DRIVE-CLiQ interfaces, 1 PROFIBUS interface, 1 LAN (Ethernet) interface, 1 RS232 serial interface, an option slot, and 3 measuring sockets.

6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 Diagram
6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 Diagram

The 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 features integrated lateral holders, which allow it to be installed directly on a Line Module in book size format or on a power unit in chassis format. The holders required to do this are supplied together with the Line Modules and the power units in the chassis format.

6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0
6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0

It is important to note that CompactFlash cards with firmware version 4.3 can only run a 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 / CU320-2 DP.  The card may only be removed and inserted when the module is in a voltage free state. Performing this during operation could result in a loss of data and potentially a plant standstill. If you are replacing your Control Unit, remove the CompactFlash card and keep it for insertion into the replacement unit. This is important to prevent the loss of data on the card.

CU320-2 DP Wiring Diagram
CU320-2 DP Wiring Diagram

An open input is interpreted by the CU320-2 DP as “low.” To enable the digital inputs function, terminal M1 must be connected. This is achieved by providing the ground reference of the digital inputs or a jumper to terminal M.

The 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0 uses a 24V DC power supply voltage. It has a 1A DC current without the DRIVE-CLiQ or digital outputs. The module’s power loss is 24W, and the maximum DRIVE-CLiQ cable length is 100 meters. The unit weights precisely 2.3 kg.
