Based on log and alarm inputs on 5/19/xxxx can’t see year there are two system events. (First of all why it is showing 5 th month seems no time synchronization).
First system message is
KW-ET200 no primary and secondary master connection, And
Check redundancy link and resource status in CBF
2 nd message cause may be due to 1 st one
KWP1 Redundant field com. Not available.
First of all I suggest to get synchronized with time,
Check time on Eng. station (CBF) PC. It should be current time. Incase it is not and showing some time before 90 days of current date/time. Changing PC date/time to current date/time lead to install freelance again incase it is in demo mode as demo mode expires in 90 days. So be aware and careful. Once setup with current date/time on PC.
Close CBF(if open), open configure window enable time synch, apply this on all PC where freelance is installed. Check image below ( I assume project is in correct timezone and daylight savings are enabled)
Now check following things.
1.Make sure Controller firmware downloaded on both controller – seems it’s done.
2.As mike replies check Profibus module FI 830 is upgraded with new firmware – I have doubt there.
Check image below by entering prim/sec controller ip you can download new firmware to controller(1) and to com. Card FI 830(2).
(Make sure both the controllers Prim/Sec are in network, you get ping reply on PC you are going to upgrade firmware. And on both the controllers are connected with redundancy link on E2 slot.) I recommend remove Profibus cable from FI830.
Connect cable back to FI 830 after successful firmware download.
download project by option “Whole station download” to redundant controller.
Check there is no Profibus cable connection issue between red. Controller(FI 830). As it was working before hence I assume there is no cabling issue.
Now if everything is fine i.e resource should be in “running, synch” status. And there is no RED LED’s on controller or com module.
At the end because timesync enabled, set time once. For that go to CBF commissioning mode, Select controller resource(I think you only one red. Controller pair) go to menu Options > set system time and press OK.
If you are not comfortable take freelance buddy - ABB support colleagues help :)
Hope that helps, sorry for bit lengthy reply
can you be more specific with your question please? What do you mean with passive PROFIBUS network? Does the customer have PROFIBUS line redundancy and you are talking about the passive of the 2 lines? Does he use RLM01 to create the line redundancy? Did you only do a sowftware upgrade to 10.1 or did you also exchange hardware?
What is the error that the customer gets?
As both Sumit and Henkel wrote before we need more info.
The only thing that comes to my mind with the info You provided is the firmware version. Have You updated the Profibus modules firmware during version change?
If no - do it.
If You did and the still get error - what is the error message? What is the configuration and which controller and Profibus modules You're using? Please help us help You.
There was no hardware change
We are talking about an full redundant system ( 2 profibus cards + 2 controllers)
Profibus software is also upgraded.
Please find attached an report with some snapshots.
The text is not translated but the custumor is just explaining that the fault is also switching if he switch from controller.
Kind regards patrick
