Motor Not Starting From the Faceplate
I have 800xA Advant System in which motor (026-M-003) is not starting from the Faceplate.On investigating and comparing with other Motor's faceplate following difference was found i.e. motor (026-M-003) is set to "LOCAL" while the other motor runing from the faceplate motor (023-M-003) is set to "CENTRAL". Please guide how can i set motor (026-M-003) to central.
The motor is in local because the input LE is high. Find out what item designation the PC-element has and check which signal that causes the state. My guess would be that it connected to an input from a switch on a local control panel. Change the switch mode or disconnect it from ONB:
Check the Faceplate configuration for the buttons. Right-click on the motor, select "Show type" from menu. a new window will open with the Object Type Structure. Select the aspect Faceplate, right-click and select ""Config View". Goto tab "Buttons".
In one of our systems (Standard 5.1) it looks like the attached picture. What is your configuration?

Please verify that the correct PC and database MOTCON elements are coupled (a typical MOTCON is split over two database entities)
I also suggest that you contact your regional ABB support center for assistance. Since this regards Advant Master they can directly reassign the case to my action group (SE L3) where we have the expertise.
I'm sorry for not being able to go into any deeper detail here (its just too complex to investigate this via a forum thread).
When Bhit system was designed it was agreed that certain features were not required on the faceplate in order to simplify the operator interface. So certain commands ere removed from the faceplates meaning things like switching between Central/Sequence point of control are not available to an oerator. Where necessary switching between Central/Sequence/Local etc. is done by the logic.
026-M-003 was desgned as a very simple motor that would only operate in Local (hence LE=1). It simply tracks the running feedback received over the switchgear serial link. The output of the MOTCON is not connected to any start/stop commands. All manual orders were disabled. See attached logic diagram.
