Some Questions about Freelance 2013R1, TrendServer, S800IO
I have some issues to discuss ie.
1) S800 Profibus IO blinking (monitored from Control Builder F > Hardware Structure)
Currently I’m doing loop check for each Analog input channel of S800 IO, which is connected to AC900F redundant system via Profibus. The problem is Profibus slave (the S800 IO) keep changing its status (ie. “Diagnostic data present”, “Slave not ready”, “Slave not existent”) which can be monitored from Hardware Structure (please see attached image), so that Analog input value indication inside the program (Control Builder F > Commissioning/Online mode) also keep changing between 0 (zero) to some real value.
I’m pretty sure there is no problem on the Profibus IO cable (hardware), but I’m not sure on the software (eg. Baudrate, Bus Timing, etc). I’ve tried to increase Baudrate value to 3.0 Mbps, and currently everything is OK. Please advise if there are any other potential cause of this problem.
For information, we have 10 nodes of S800 IO with approximately 1500 IOs
2) Trend server licensing
Client is asking to separate between Trend server and Control builder F into 2 workstations. ABB local gave us only one hardkey dongle which are installed Trend server and Control Builder F license, and I insert the dongle into Control Builder F workstation. Can the license be read by Trend server workstation from the LAN network?
3) Control Builder F, VIS object bug
FGR display suddenly changed with another FGR display while we modify one of them, so unexpectedly we have 2 copy of one FGR, and the other one is gone. It has already happen twice.
4) AC900F Controller load indicates 100%
AC900F Controller load indicates 100% in the controller display. Is it okay? For information, currently I’m still testing the IO system, so all controller still on manual mode.
