SynqNet

SynqNet controller LEDs will BLINK to indicate a fault (or undiscovered network). A controller with no blinking LEDs is in normal cyclic operation (without faults). Each SynqNet port has two LEDs. And each LED has a particular function, which is described in further detail below.

Each controller will have four green LEDs:

LED4 IN Network Activity MAC
ON = Tx and Rx active
(cyclic phase)
BLINK = Tx only active
(discovery phase)
OFF = idle (shutdown phase), or during a network reset.

         LED1 and LED3 = Link Activity

 
  • On (Link Active)
  • Off (Link Inactive)

         LED2 and LED4 = Network Activity

 
  • On (Cyclic Phase--Tx and Rx are Active)
  • Off (Shutdown Phase--Idle State or network reset)
  • Blink (Discovery Phase--only Tx is Active)

CAN

The XMP-CAN controllers have two green LEDs. These LEDs give a visual representation of the activity on the CAN network. The locations of the LEDs vary depending on the type of XMP-CAN controller. The photos and table below show the locations and meanings of each LED.
