We often have people who are having issues with their current drive setup but can’t confirm that a specific drive in their system is the issue. They are all but sure, but understandably want to confirm the problem before buying a replacement from us, so we have a set of troubleshooting procedures issued from Siemens that we can send out so that people can confirm that they have a problem. Last week a customer was replacing a Siemens 6SN1145-1BA02-0CA1 module and wanted to troubleshoot their I/R module, so we’ve listed the troubleshooting procedures in the table below to help with Simodrive E/R Troubleshooting.
For a full list of the Siemens Simodrives that we have available you can visit the section on our website here. To request a quote, please call us at 1-800-691-8511 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The FANUC A06B-6087-H130 is a 200V Power Supply Module (PSM-30).
Multiple servo amplifier modules and spindle amplifier modules can be connected to a single power supply provided the output capacity conditions are satisfied. Below lies the basic configuration when using the A06B-6087-H130:
Always install the circuit breakers, magnetic contactor, and AC reactor on your A06B-6087-H130. Be sure to use the correct breakers as specified in the FANUC manual. To protect the module from lightning surge voltages, install a lightning surge protector across each pair of power lines and across each power line and the grounding line at the power inlet of the magnetics cabinet. Always connect the control power supply cable to the CX1A. If it is connected to the CX1B, fuses inside the module could blow. If you are using two power supply modules, the magnetic contactors and AC reactors cannot be shared – they each have ratings that matches each power supply module. However, the lightning surge protector can be shared. Make the wires used as short as possible if you do this.
Notes on Cleaning the A06B-6087-H130 Fan and Heat Sink:
A dirty heat sink or fan results in reduced semiconductor cooling efficiency, which degrades reliability. Periodic cleaning is necessary.
using the compressed air for cleaning scatters the dust. A deposit of conductive dust on the amplifier for peripheral equipment will result in failure.
To clean the heat sink, do so only after turning the power off and ensuring that the heat sink has cooled to room temperature. The heat sink becomes extremely hot, such that touching it during operation or immediately after power-off is likely to cause a burn. Be extremely careful when touching the heat sink.
The XBTGT5330 is a Magelis XBTGT Advanced Touchscreen Panel with a back-lit color LCD display and Thin Film Transistors screen technology. It has a 10.4 inch display that is 640 by 480 pixels VGA. It has a Magelis operating system and uses Vijeo Designer software. The XBTGT5330 also has a CPU RISC processor with a frequency of 266 MHz.
The XBTGT5330 has a back-light lifespan of 54,000 hours. If your panel has seen more use, it may be time to replace it. If you are seeing orange on the local LED, then the panel’s back-lighting is faulty.
The XBTGT5330 has 512 kB of backup SRAM data and an application memory of 32 MB. The panel has a number of integrated connection types, shown below:
– Power supply with removable screw terminal block
– Digital input with a removable screw terminal block
– COM2 serial link RJ45 RS485
– Siemens MPI (187.5 kbits/s)
– COM1 serial link Male SUB-D 9 RS232C/RS422/RS485
– Audio output with a removable screw terminal block
– 3 digital outputs with removable screw terminal block
– 2 USB type A master ports
The entire panel is touch sensitive. Additionally, there are 8 levels of brightness and contrast on the touch panel. It uses a 24V DC power supply, which should be kept in between 19.2 and 28.8 volts. The inrush current should be kept to less than 30 amps, and the panel’s power consumption is less than 50 watts. The allowable voltage drop is <10ms.
The XBTGT5330’s dimensions are approximately 270.5 x 212.5 x 212.5 mm. The product itself weighs 2.5 kg. The minimum number of fasteners to install the panel is 4, with a maximum of 10. It is strongly recommended that an installation gasket is used, since it absorbs vibration and also repels water.
The following diagram shows how your devices should connect to a Magelis Touchscreen Panel:
The FANUC A06B-6093-H152 is a Beta series servo amplifier. It is important when using this amplifier that the ground fault interrupter is mounted. Fit the factory power supply or machine with a ground fault interrupter that is designed for use with an inverter. This will guard again fire and electrical shock. Ensure that the motor and amplifier is an appropriate combination, and that valid parameters are specified. Specifying an invalid parameter can not only prevent normal operation, but can also damage the amplifier.
Before connecting the power supply wiring on your A06B-6093-H152 amplifier, check that the voltage supply is within the appropriate range. It is also important that appropriate countermeasures are taken against noise. Signal lines should be routed away from the power supply lines and the power lines.
If you encounter a failure on your A06B-6093-H152, first check the LED display for the alarm code to determine the cause and apply the appropriate countermeasure.
MRO Electric stocks both new and refurbished FANUC A06B-6093-H152 Amplifiers. For more information or to request a quote, please email email@example.com or call 800-691-8511.
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.
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.
Does the Magelis HMISTO have e-mail functionality?
Only the HMISTO531 and HMISTO532.
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 ?

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.
Are the Magelis HMIGTO series ATEX Certified?
Yes, the Magelis HMIGTO’s are ATEX certified and the models are listed below.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
