4.5.1. Operating modes indication¶
220.127.116.11. Controller status¶
Mode indication is provided in controller. For this purpose one dual-color LED is located on the board.
Green Power indicator shows presence of 3.3 V power supply of controller.
Red Status indicator represents controller operating mode. Simultaneous glowing of both lights looks like yellow glow.
|Flicker frequency Hz||Description|
|LEDs don’t glow||the controller is shut down, there is no power supply|
|Green Power LED is glow||power is supplied to the controller|
|Green Status LED is glow||the firmware is not loaded|
|Yellow Status LED is glow||the controller is in an Alarm state|
|Yellow Status LED is flashes, 0,25 Hz||the controller is operating, but there is no connection to the PC via USB|
|Yellow Status LED is flashes, 1 Hz||the controller is operating, waiting for the movement command|
|Yellow Status LED is flashes, 4 Hz||the controller is operating, the movement command is executed|
|Yellow Status LED is flashes, 8 Hz||the controller is in re-flashing mode|
|Yellow Status LED is flashes, 10 Hz||the controller is in USB bus reconnecting mode|
18.104.22.168. Indication of limit switches¶
Multifunctional 18 pin BPC connector is provided with limit switches activity indication. High logic level appears on the corresponding output in the moment of limit switch activity. Active state is determined from limits switches settings (see Motion range and limit switches)
22.214.171.124. Connection diagram¶
In case of additional LEDs they should be designed for 4 mA operational current. There is no need in additional current limiting resistors. Operational current for typical LEDs is about 2 mA. It is not recommended to use blue and violet LEDs because of their high cut off voltage and as a consequence low brightness.
126.96.36.199.1. Controller board¶
Status indicator is duplicated by output on the PCB connector CN1 BPC connector with the next scheme of LED connection:
Limit switches are located on the same connector. The connection diagram is shown below. To indicate the limit switches it is convenient to use the LEDs designed for the necessary current.
