Check Node Information
Click on the button to view the SqNode Summary window. This window provides specific information about the nodes installed on the system. SynqNet will find the nodes in the order that they are connected. The hardware setup used for this example had two nodes. Therefore, the SqNode Summary Window shows two nodes: SqNode 0 and SqNode 1. This window also shows the address information of each node.
TIP: Before proceeding on to Step 9, it is helpful to first minimize the Motion Console window.
Some of the Link LEDs on my node/drive are not ON...
If the Link LEDs are not turned ON, make sure that the drive has power. If the drive has power and Link LEDs are not ON, disconnect and reconnect the connector.
If the LEDs are not ON and the power has been verified, check to make sure that the cables are connected to the right ports.
If the Link LEDs still do not turn ON, the power has been verified, and the connections are correct, replace the cable. Another way of verifying if the cable is bad is to switch the cables. If the ports' LEDs light up with one cable and not with the other, then that cable is bad. Also, after the cables have been replaced, be sure to reset the controller in order to reinitialize the network.
The RMB/SynqNet Node does not
work straight from the box...
A node is improperly ordered...
SynqNet initialized successfully,
but all of the nodes were not found...
