LED light patterns

NSB 4 years ago in Other updated by Ulrik Zakariasson (Software development) 4 years ago 3

Does Parker Hannifin have an LED status/error light pattern guideline for it's products in general?

Hello.

If you look trough the instruction books you will find that the blink panthers have roughly the same meaning on each of the current IQAN products.
The difference is if the unit in question have all the different blink codes or not.

There can also be a difference in the description of the error, this is why i said roughly.

For example, you have the blink code for output error 1:1.
On the MC2 it is only described as 'Output'.

On the XC21 it is described as 'DOUT error (open load)'.

This comes from that the only output on a XC21 is the DOUT and the only error detection we have on it is the open load.

On the MC2 we have more types of output channels that can generate this error so it is only described as 'output'.


These blink codes come from the MC3 instruction book.
Using these you can get a good idea of what is wrong with the unit.

1:1 Output

1:2 Input

1:3 VREF

2:1 Power Supply

2:2 Temperature

3:1 CAN, no contact

3:2 IDtag error
3:3 System mismatch
3:4 CAN error (bus off)
4:1 Internal error/OSE
4:2 Critical Temperature
4:3 Critical Stop


You find the descriptions in the instruction books for each module. Pattern is similar, but better check in the right instruction book.Just google "Instrcution book" and the name of your product, it will lead you to the right parker.com-subpage.

Are any flash patterns common to all current products?
