Overview
This chapter explains how analog data is used, and describes the
1769-IF4 analog input module and the 1769-OF2 analog output
module. Included is information about:
• the use of analog I/O
• the modules’ hardware and diagnostic features
• an overview of the 1769 analog input system operation
• an overview of the 1769 analog output system operation
How to Use Analog I/O
Analog refers to the representation of numerical quantities by the
measurement of continuous physical variables. Analog applications
are present in many forms. The following application shows a typical
use of analog data.
In this application, the processor controls the amount of fluid in a
holding tank by adjusting the valve opening. The valve is initially
open 100%. As the fluid level in the tank approaches the preset point,
the processor modifies the output to close the valve 90%, 80%, and so
on, continuously adjusting the valve to maintain the fluid level.

Overview
General Description
The 1769-IF4 analog input module converts and digitally stores
analog data for retrieval by controllers, such as the MicroLogix™
1500. The module supports connections from any combination of up
to four voltage or current analog sensors. The four high-impedance
input channels can be wired as either single-ended or differential
inputs.
The 1769-OF2 output module provides two single-ended analog
output channels, each individually configurable for voltage or current.
Both modules provide the following input/output types/ranges:

Hardware Features
The modules contain removable terminal blocks. The 1769-IF4’s four
channels can be wired as either single-ended or differential inputs.
The 1769-OF2’s two channels are single-ended only. Module
configuration is normally done via the controller’s programming
software. In addition, some controllers support configuration via the
user program. In either case, the module configuration is stored in the
memory of the controller. Refer to your controller manual for more
information.
The illustration below shows the hardware features of both the
1769-IF4 and the 1769-OF2 modules.

Overview
General Diagnostic Features
The 1769-IF4 and 1769-OF2 modules contain diagnostic features that
can help you identify the source of problems that may occur during
power-up or during normal channel operation. These power-up and
channel diagnostics are explained in chapter 6, Module Diagnostics
and Troubleshooting.

The modules communicate to the controller through the bus interface.
The modules also receive 5 and 24V dc power through the bus
interface. You can install as many analog modules as your power
supply can support. However, the modules have a power supply
distance rating of 8, which means that they may not be located more
than 8 modules away from the system power supply.

System Operation
At power-up, the module performs a check of its internal circuits,
memory, and basic functions. During this time, the module status
LED remains off. If no faults are found during power-up diagnostics,
the module status LED is turned on.
After power-up checks are complete, the module waits for valid
channel configuration data. If an invalid configuration is detected, the
module generates a configuration error. Once a channel is properly
configured and enabled, it begins the analog-to-digital or digital-toanalog conversion process.
Publication 1769-6.0
Overview
1-5
Input Module
Each time a channel is read by the input module, that analog data
value is tested by the module for an over-range or under-range
condition. If such a condition is detected, a unique bit is set in the
channel status word. The channel status word is described in “1769IF4 Input Data File” on page 4-2.
The controller reads the two’s complement binary converted analog
data from the module. This typically occurs at the end of the program
scan or when commanded by the control program. If the controller
and the module determine that the bus data transfer was made without
error, the data is used in your control program.
Output Module
The output module monitors channels for over-range and under-range
conditions and also for broken output wires and high load resistance
(in current mode only). If such a condition is detected, a unique bit is
set in the channel status word. The channel status word is described in
“1769-OF2 Input Data File” on page 5-2.
The output module receives two’s complement binary values from the
bus master. This typically occurs at the end of the program scan or
when commanded by the control program. If the controller and the
module determine that the bus transfer was completed without error,
the output module converts the data to an analog output signal.
Publication 1769-6.0
1-6
Overview
Module Operation
The input module’s input circuitry consists of four differential analog
inputs multiplexed into a single analog-to-digital (A/D) converter.
The A/D converter reads the selected input signal and converts it to a
digital value which is presented to the controller. The multiplexer
sequentially switches each input channel to the module’s A/D
converter. See the block diagram below.

Module Field Calibration
The 1769-IF4 input module performs autocalibration when a channel
is initially enabled. In addition, if a channel is configured differently
than the previously scanned channel, an autocalibration cycle is run as
part of the reconfiguration process.
The 1769-OF2 output module’s calibration is guaranteed by its
design. No field calibration is required.

(IEC 60664-1).3
Prevent Electrostatic Discharge
!
ATTENTION: Electrostatic discharge can
damage integrated circuits or semiconductors if
you touch analog I/O module bus connector pins or
the terminal block on the input module. Follow
these guidelines when you handle the module:
• Touch a grounded object to discharge static
potential.
• Wear an approved wrist-strap grounding device.
• Do not touch the bus connector or connector
pins.
• Do not touch circuit components inside the
module.
• If available, use a static-safe work station.
• When it is not in use, keep the module in its
static-shield box.
1. Pollution Degree 2 is an environment where, normally, only non-conductive pollution occurs except that
occasionally a temporary conductivity caused by condensation shall be expected.
2. Over Voltage Category II is the load level section of the electrical distribution system. At this level
transient voltages are controlled and do not exceed the impulse voltage capability of the product’s
insulation.
3. Pollution Degree 2 and Over Voltage Category II are International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)
designations.

Remove Power
!
ATTENTION: Remove power before removing or
inserting this module. When you remove or insert a
module with power applied, an electrical arc may
occur. An electrical arc can cause personal injury or
property damage by:
• sending an erroneous signal to your system’s
field devices, causing unintended machine
motion
• causing an explosion in a hazardous environment
• Electrical arcing causes excessive wear to
contacts on both the module and its mating
connector and may lead to premature failure.
General
Considerations
Reducing Noise
Most applications require installation in an industrial enclosure to
reduce the effects of electrical interference. Analog inputs and
outputs are highly susceptible to electrical noise. Electrical noise
coupled to the analog inputs will reduce the performance (accuracy)
of the module.
Group your modules to minimize adverse effects from radiated
electrical noise and heat. Consider the following conditions when
selecting a location for the analog module. Position the module:
• away from sources of electrical noise such as hard-contact
switches, relays, and AC motor drives
• away from modules which generate significant radiated heat,
such as the 1769-IA16. Refer to the module’s heat dissipation
specification.
In addition, route shielded, twisted-pair analog input and output
wiring away from any high voltage I/O wiring.
Protecting the Circuit Board from Contamination
The printed circuit boards of the analog modules must be protected
from dirt, oil, moisture, and other airborne contaminants. To protect
these boards, the system must be installed in an enclosure suitable for
the environment. The interior of the enclosure should be kept clean
and the enclosure door should be kept closed whenever possible.
System Assembly
The module can be attached to the controller or an adjacent I/O
module before or after mounting. For mounting instructions, see
“Panel Mounting Using the Dimensional Template” on page 3-5, or
“DIN Rail Mounting” on page 3-6. To work with a system that is
already mounted, see “Replacing a Single Module within a System”
on page 3-7.

Installation and Wiring
Panel Mounting Procedure Using Modules as a Template
The following procedure allows you to use the assembled modules as
a template for drilling holes in the panel. If you have sophisticated
panel mounting equipment, you can use the dimensional template
provided on page 3-5. Due to module mounting hole tolerance, it is
important to follow these procedures:
1. On a clean work surface, assemble no more than three modules.
2. Using the assembled modules as a template, carefully mark the
center of all module-mounting holes on the panel.
3. Return the assembled modules to the clean work surface,
including any previously mounted modules.
4. Drill and tap the mounting holes for the recommended M4 or #8
screw.
5. Place the modules back on the panel, and check for proper hole
alignment.
6. Attach the modules to the panel using the mounting screws.
Note:
If mounting more modules, mount only the last one
of this group and put the others aside. This reduces
remounting time during drilling and tapping of the
next group.
7. Repeat steps 1 to 6 for any remaining modules.
DIN Rail Mounting
The module can be mounted using the following DIN rails:
35 x 7.5 mm (EN 50 022 - 35 x 7.5) or 35 x 15 mm
(EN 50 022 - 35 x 15).
Before mounting the module on a DIN rail, close the DIN rail latches.
Press the DIN rail mounting area of the module against the DIN rail.
The latches will momentarily open and lock into place.

Replacing a Single Module within a System
The module can be replaced while the system is mounted to a panel
(or DIN rail).
1. Remove power. See important note on page 3-3.
2. On the module to be removed, remove the upper and lower
mounting screws from the module (or open the DIN latches
using a flat-blade or phillips-style screw driver).
3. Move the bus lever to the right to disconnect (unlock) the bus.
4. On the right-side adjacent module, move its bus lever to the right
(unlock) to disconnect it from the module to be removed.
5. Gently slide the disconnected module forward. If you feel
excessive resistance, check that the module has been
disconnected from the bus, and that both mounting screws have
been removed (or DIN latches opened).
Note:
It may be necessary to rock the module slightly from
front to back to remove it, or, in a panel-mounted
system, to loosen the screws of adjacent modules.
6. Before installing the replacement module, be sure that the bus
lever on the module to be installed, and on the right-side adjacent
module are in the unlocked (fully right) position.
7. Slide the replacement module into the open slot.
8. Connect the modules together by locking (fully left) the bus
levers on the replacement module and the right-side adjacent
module.
9. Replace the mounting screws (or snap the module onto the DIN
rail).

Installation and Wiring
Wiring the Modules
!
ATTENTION: To prevent shock hazard, care should be
taken when wiring the module to analog signal sources.
Before wiring any analog module, disconnect power
from the system power supply and from any other source
to the analog module.
After the analog module is properly installed, follow the wiring
procedure below. To ensure proper operation and high immunity to
electrical noise, always use Belden™ 8761 (shielded, twisted pair) or
equivalent wire.
!
ATTENTION: When wiring an analog input, take care
to avoid connecting a voltage source to a channel
configured for current input. Improper module operation
or damage to the voltage source can occur.
ATTENTION: Never connect a voltage or current
source to an analog output channel.

To wire your module follow these steps.
1. At each end of the cable, strip some casing to expose the
individual wires.
2. Trim the signal wires to 2-inch lengths. Strip about 3/16 inch
(5 mm) of insulation away to expose the end of the wire.
!
Publication 1769-6.0
ATTENTION: Be careful when stripping wires. Wire
fragments that fall into a module could cause damage at
power up.
Installation and Wiring
3-13
3. At one end of the cable, twist the drain wire and foil shield
together.
Under normal conditions, this drain wire and shield junction
should be connected to earth ground, via a panel or DIN rail
mounting screw at the analog I/O module end. Keep the length
of the drain wire as short as possible.
In environments where high frequency noise may be present, it
may be necessary to ground the cable shields to earth at the
module end via a 0.1 µF capacitor at the sensor end for analog
inputs and at the load end for analog outputs.
4. At the other end of the cable, cut the drain wire and foil shield
back to the cable.
5. Connect the signal wires to the terminal block as shown in
“1769-IF4 Analog Input Wiring” on page 3-14 and “1769-OF2
Analog Output Wiring” on page 3-16. Connect the other end of
the cable to the analog input or output device.
6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 for each channel on the module.
Terminal Door Label
A removable, write-on label is provided with the module. Remove the
label from the door, mark the identification of each terminal with
permanent ink, and slide the label back into the door. Your markings
(ID tag) will be visible when the module door is closed.

1769-IF4 Input Data Values
Words 0 through 3 contain the converted analog input data from the
field device. The most significant bit (MSB) is the sign bit.
General Status Bits (S0 - S3)
Word 4, bits 0 through 3 contain the general operational status bits for
input channels 0 through 3. If set (1), these bits indicate an error
associated with that channel. The over- and under-range bits for
channels 0 through 3 are logically ORed to the appropriate general
status bit.
Over-Range Flag Bits (O0 - O3)
Over-range bits for channels 3 through 0 are contained in word 5, bits
8, 10, 12, and 14. They apply to all input types. When set (1), this bit
indicates input signals beyond the normal operating range. However,
the module continues to convert analog data to the maximum full
range value. The bit is automatically reset (0) by the module when the
over-range condition is cleared and the data value is within the normal
operating range.
Under-Range Flag Bits (U0 - U3)
Under-range bits for channels 3 through 0 are contained in word 5,
bits 9, 11, 13, and 15. They apply to all input types. When set (1), this
bit indicates input signals below the normal operating range. It may
also indicate an open circuit condition, when the module is
configured for the 4 - 20 mA range. However, the module continues to
convert analog data to the minimum full range value. The bit is
automatically reset (0) by the module when the under-range condition
is cleared and the data value is within the normal operating range.

Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-IF4
Enable Channel
This configuration selection allows each channel to be individually
enabled.
Note:
When a channel is not enabled (0), no voltage or current
input is provided to the controller by the A/D converter.
Input Filter Selection
The input filter selection field allows you to select the filter frequency
for each channel and provides system status of the input filter setting
for analog input channels 0 through 3. The filter frequency affects the
noise rejection characteristics, as explained below. Select a filter
frequency considering acceptable noise and step response time.
Noise Rejection
The 1769-IF4 uses a digital filter that provides noise rejection for the
input signals. The filter is programmable, allowing you to select from
four filter frequencies for each channel. The digital filter provides the
highest noise rejection at the selected filter frequency. A lower
frequency (60 Hz versus 250 Hz) can provide better noise rejection
but it increases channel update time. Transducer power supply noise,
transducer circuit noise, or process variable irregularities may also be
sources of normal mode noise.
Common Mode Rejection is better than 60 dB at 50 and 60 Hz, with
the 50 and 60 Hz filters selected, respectively. The module performs
well in the presence of common mode noise as long as the signals
applied to the user plus and minus input terminals do not exceed the
common mode voltage rating (± 10 V) of the module. Improper earth
ground may be a source of common mode noise.
Channel Step Response
The selected channel filter frequency determines the channel’s step
response. The step response is the time required for the analog input
signal to reach 100% of its expected final value. This means that if an
input signal changes faster than the channel step response, a portion
of that signal will be attenuated by the channel filter.

Channel Cut-Off Frequency
The -3 dB frequency is the filter cut-off frequency. The cut-off
frequency is defined as the point on the frequency response curve
where frequency components of the input signal are passed with 3 dB
of attenuation. All input frequency components at or below the cut-off
frequency are passed by the digital filter with less than 3 dB of
attenuation. All frequency components above the cut-off frequency
are increasingly attenuated as shown in the graphs below.
The cut-off frequency for each channel is defined by its filter
frequency selection. Choose a filter frequency so that your fastest
changing signal is below that of the filter’s cut-off frequency. The cutoff frequency should not be confused with the update time. The cutoff frequency relates to how the digital filter attenuates frequency
components of the input signal. The update time defines the rate at
which an input channel is scanned and its channel data word is
updated.

Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-IF4
Module Update Time and Scanning Process
The module update time is defined as the time required for the
module to sample and convert the input signals of all enabled input
channels and provide the resulting data values to the processor.
Module update time can be calculated by adding the sum of all
enabled channel times. Channel times include channel scan time,
channel switching time, and reconfiguration time. The module
sequentially samples the channels in a continuous loop as shown
below.

The following table shows the channel update times. The fastest
module update time occurs when only one channel is enabled with a
500 Hz filter (4 ms). If more than one channel is enabled, the update
time is faster if both channels have the same configuration. See
“Example 1” on page 4-9. The slowest module update time occurs
when all four channels are enabled with different configurations. See
“Example 2” on page 4-9.

Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-IF4
Input Data Selection Formats
This selection configures channels 0 through 3 to present analog data
in any of the following formats:
• Raw/Proportional Data
• Engineering Units
• Scaled for PID
• Percent Range
Raw/Proportional Data
The value presented to the controller is proportional to the selected
input and scaled into the maximum data range allowed by the bit
resolution of the A/D converter and filter selected. The full range for a
±10Vdc user input is -32767 to +32767. See Table 4.8, “Valid Input
Data,” on page 4-11.
Engineering Units
The module scales the analog input data to the actual current or
voltage values for the selected input range. The resolution of the
engineering units is dependent on the range selected and the filter
selected. SeeTable 4.8, “Valid Input Data,” on page 4-11.
Scaled for PID
The value presented to the controller is a signed integer with zero
representing the lower user range and 16383 representing the upper
user range. Allen-Bradley controllers, such as the MicroLogix 1500,
use this range in their PID equations. The amount over and under user
range (full scale range -410 to 16793) is also included. See Table 4.8,
“Valid Input Data,” on page 4-11.
Percent Range
The input data is presented to the user as a percent of the user range.
For example, 0V to 10V dc equals 0% to 100%. See Table 4.8, “Valid
Input Data,” on page 4-11.
Note:
The ±10V dc range does not support the percent user
range data format.

Hold Last State Bits (H0 - H1)
These bits indicate when channel 0 (bit 14) or channel 1 (bit 12) is in
a hold last state condition. When one of these bits is set (1), the
corresponding channel is in the hold state. Output data will not
change until the condition which caused the hold last state to occur is
removed. The bit is reset (0) for all other conditions.
Note:
Not all controllers support the hold last state function.
Refer to your controller’s user manual for details.

Over-range bits for channels 0 and 1 are contained in word 1, bits 14
and 12. When set, the over-range bit indicates that the controller is
attempting to drive the analog output above its normal operating
range. However, the module continues to convert analog output data
to a maximum full range value. The bit is automatically reset (0) by
the module when the over-range condition is cleared (the output is
within the normal operating range). The over-range bits apply to all
output ranges. Refer to Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on page
5-11 to view the normal operating and over-range areas.
Under-Range Flag Bits (U0 - U1)
Under-range bits for channels 0 and 1 are contained in word 1, bits 15
and 13. When set (1), the under-range bit indicates that the controller
is attempting to drive the analog output below its normal operating
range. However, the module continues to convert analog output data
to a minimum full range value. The bit is automatically reset (0) by
the module when the under-range condition is cleared (the output is
within the normal operating range). The under-range bits apply to all
output ranges. Refer to Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on page
5-11 to view the normal operating and under-range areas.
General Status Bits (S0 - S1)
Word 0, bits 0 and 1 contain the general status information for output
channels 0 and 1. If set (1), these bits indicate an error associated with
that channel. The over-range and under-range bits and the diagnostic
bit are logically ORed to this position.
Output Data Loopback/Echo
Words 2 and 3 provide output loopback/data echo through the input
array for channels 0 and 1, respectively. The value of the data echo is
the analog value currently being converted on-board the module by
the D/A converter. This ensures that the logic-directed state of the
output is true. Otherwise, the state of the output could vary depending
on controller mode.
Publication 1769-6.0
5-4
Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-OF2
Under normal operating conditions, the data echo value is the same
value that is being sent from the controller to the output module.
Under abnormal conditions, the values may differ. For example:
1. During run mode, the control program could direct the module to
a value over or under the defined full range. In that case, the
module raises the over- or under-range flag and continues to
convert and data echo up to the defined full range. However,
upon reaching either the maximum upper or lower full range
value, the module stops converting and echoes back that
maximum upper or lower full range value, not the value being
sent from the controller.
2. During program or fault mode with Hold Last State or UserDefined Value selected, the module echoes the hold last value or
alternate value as selected by the user. For more information on
the hold last and user-defined values, see “Fault Value (Channel
0 - 1)” on page 5-10 and “Program/Idle Value (Channel 0 - 1)”
on page 5-10.

Configuration Data File
The configuration file allows you to determine how each individual
output channel will operate. Parameters such as the output type/range
and data format are set up using this file. The configuration data file is
writable and readable. The default value for the configuration data file
is all zeros. The structure of the channel configuration file is
explained below. Words 0 and 1 are the channel configuration words
for channels 0 and 1. They are described in “Channel Configuration
Words” on page 5-6. Words 2 through 5 are explained beginning on

Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-OF2
5-7
Enable Channel
This configuration selection (bit 15) allows each channel to be
individually enabled.
Note:
A channel that is not enabled has zero voltage or current
at its terminal.
Output Type/Range Selection
This selection, along with proper output wiring, allows you to
configure each output channel individually for current or voltage
ranges, and provides the ability to read the range selection.
Output Data Format Selection
This selection configures each channel to interpret data presented to it
by the controller in any of the following formats:
• Raw/Proportional Data
• Engineering Units
• Scaled for PID
• Percent Full Range
Raw/Proportional Data
The control program presents the maximum raw data value allowed
by the bit resolution of the D/A converter. The full range for a
± 10Vdc user input is -32767 to +32767. See Table 5.6, “Valid Output
Data Table,” on page 5-11.
Engineering Units
The control program presents an engineering data value to the module
within the current or voltage range allowed by the D/A converter. The
module then scales the data to the appropriate analog output value for
the selected user range. See Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on
page 5-11.
Scaled for PID
The control program presents an integer value to the module, with
zero representing the lower user range and 16383 representing the
upper user range, for conversion by the D/A converter. The module
then scales this data to the approximate analog output value for the
selected user range. See Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on
page 5-11.
Allen-Bradley controllers, such as the MicroLogix 1500,
Note:
use this range in their PID equations for controlled
process outputs.
Publication 1769-6.0
5-8
Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-OF2
Percent Full Range
The control program presents the analog output data to the module as
a percent of the full analog output range (for example, valve 50%
open). The module scales this data to the appropriate analog output
value for the selected user range. For example, 0 to 100% equals 0 to
10V dc. See Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on page 5-11.
Note:
The ±10V dc range does not support percent full range.
Program/Idle to Fault Enable (PFE0 - PFE1)
If a system currently in program/idle mode faults, this setting (word 0,
bit 0; word 1, bit 0) determines whether the program/idle or fault
mode value is applied to the output. If the selection is enabled [the bit
is set (1)], the module applies the fault mode data value. If the
selection is disabled [the bit is reset (0)], the module applies the
program/idle mode data value. The default setting is disabled.
Note:
Not all controllers support this function. Refer to your
controller’s user manual for details.
Fault Mode (FM0 - FM1)
This configuration selection provides individual fault mode selection
for analog output channels 0 (word 0, bit 3) and 1 (word 1, bit 3).
When this selection is disabled [the bit is reset (0)] and the system
enters the fault mode, the module holds the last output state value.
This means that the analog output remains at the last converted value
prior to the condition that caused the system to enter the fault mode.
Important: Hold last state is the default condition for the 1769-OF2
during a control system run-to-fault mode change.
Note:
MicroLogix 1500™ does not support the analog output
module’s default hold last state function and resets
analog outputs to zero when the system enters the fault
mode.
If this selection is enabled [the bit is set (1)] and the system enters the
fault mode, it commands the module to convert the user-specified
integer value from the channel’s fault value word (2 or 4) to the
appropriate analog output for the range selected. If the default value,
0000, is entered, the output typically converts to the minimum value
for the range selected.
Publication 1769-6.0
Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-OF2
5-9
For example:
• If the raw/proportional or engineering units data format is
selected and zero (0000) is entered in the ±10V dc operating
range, the resulting value would be 0V dc.
• If the raw/proportional or engineering units format is selected
and zero is entered as the fault value in either a 1 to 5V dc or 4 to
20 mA range, a configuration error results.
See Table 5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on page 5-11 for more
examples.
Note:
Not all controllers support this function. Refer to your
controller’s user manual for details.
Program/Idle Mode (PM0 - PM1))
This configuration selection provides individual program/idle mode
selection for the analog channels 0 (word 0, bit 2) and 1 (word 1, bit
2). When this selection is disabled [the bit is reset (0)], the module
holds the last state, meaning that the analog output remains at the last
converted value prior to the condition that caused the control system
to enter the program mode.
Important: Hold last state is the default condition for the 1769-OF2
during a control system run-to-program mode change.
Note:
MicroLogix 1500™ does not support the analog output
module’s default hold last state function and resets
analog outputs to zero when the system enters the
program mode.
If this selection is enabled [the bit is set (1)] and the system enters the
program mode, it commands the module to convert the user-specified
value from the channel’s program/idle value word (3 or 5) to the
appropriate analog output for the range selected.
For example:
• If the default value, 0000, is used and the range selected is 0 - 20
mA, the module will output 0 mA for all data formats.
• If the raw/proportional or engineering units format is selected
and zero is entered as the program/idle value in either a 1 to 5V
dc or 4 to 20 mA range, a configuration error results. See Table
5.6, “Valid Output Data Table,” on page 5-11 for more examples.
Note:
Not all controllers support this function. Refer to your
controller’s user manual for details.
Publication 1769-6.0

Module Data, Status, and Channel Configuration for 1769-OF2
Fault Value (Channel 0 - 1)
Using words 2 and 4 for channels 0 and 1, you can specify the values
the outputs will assume when the system enters the fault mode. The
default value is 0. Valid values are dependent upon the range selected
in the range selection field. If the value entered by the user is outside
the normal operating range for the output range selected, the module
generates a configuration error.
For example, if you select engineering units for the ±10V dc range
and enter a fault value within the normal operating range (0 to
10000), the module will configure and operate correctly. However, if
you enter a value outside the normal operating range (for example
11000), the module indicates a configuration error.
Note:
Not all controllers support this function. Refer to your
controller’s user manual for details.
Program/Idle Value (Channel 0 - 1)
Use words 3 and 5 to set the integer values for the outputs to assume
when the system enters the program mode. The values are dependent
upon the range selected in the range selection field. If the value
entered by the user is outside the normal operating range for the
output range selected, the module generates a configuration error. The
default value is 0.
Note:
Not all controllers support this function. Refer to your
controller’s user manual for details.

Module Diagnostics and
Troubleshooting
This chapter describes troubleshooting the analog input and output
modules. This chapter contains information on:
• safety considerations when troubleshooting
• module vs. channel operation
• the module’s diagnostic features
• critical vs. non-critical errors
• module condition data
Safety Considerations
Safety considerations are an important element of proper
troubleshooting procedures. Actively thinking about the safety of
yourself and others, as well as the condition of your equipment, is of
primary importance.
The following sections describe several safety concerns you should be
aware of when troubleshooting your control system.
!
ATTENTION: Never reach into a machine to actuate a
switch because unexpected motion can occur and cause
injury.
ATTENTION: Remove all electrical power at the main
power disconnect switches before checking electrical
connections or inputs/outputs causing machine motion.
Indicator Lights
When the green LED on the analog module is illuminated, it indicates
that power is applied to the module.
Activating Devices When Troubleshooting
When troubleshooting, never reach into the machine to actuate a
device. Unexpected machine motion could occur.
Stand Clear of the Machine
When troubleshooting any system problem, have all personnel remain
clear of the machine. The problem could be intermittent, and sudden
unexpected machine motion could occur. Have someone ready to
operate an emergency stop switch in case it becomes necessary to
shut off power to the machine.
Publication 1769-6.0
6-2
Module Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
Program Alteration
There are several possible causes of alteration to the user program,
including extreme environmental conditions, Electromagnetic
Interference (EMI), improper grounding, improper wiring
connections, and unauthorized tampering. If you suspect a program
has been altered, check it against a previously saved program on an
EEPROM or UVPROM memory module.
Safety Circuits
Circuits installed on the machine for safety reasons, like over travel
limit switches, stop push buttons, and interlocks, should always be
hard-wired to the master control relay. These devices must be wired in
series so that when any one device opens, the master control relay is
de-energized, thereby removing power to the machine. Never alter
these circuits to defeat their function. Serious injury or machine
damage could result.
Module Operation vs.
Channel Operation
The module performs operations at two levels:
• module level
• channel level
Module-level operations include functions such as power-up,
configuration, and communication with a bus master, such as a
MicroLogix 1500 controller.
Channel-level operations describe channel related functions, such as
data conversion and over- or under-range detection.
Internal diagnostics are performed at both levels of operation. When
detected, module error conditions are immediately indicated by the
module status LED. Both module hardware and channel configuration
error conditions are reported to the controller. Channel over-range or
under-range conditions are reported in the module’s input data table.
Module hardware errors are typically reported in the controller’s I/O
status file. Refer to your controller manual for details.
When a fault condition is detected, the analog outputs are reset to
zero. The data in the output data file is retained during the fault. Once
the fault condition is corrected and the major fault bit in the controller
is cleared, the retained data is sent to the analog output channels.
Publication 1769-6.0
Module Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
Power-up Diagnostics
6-3
At module power-up, a series of internal diagnostic tests are
performed. These diagnostic tests must be successfully completed or
the module status LED remains off and a module error results and is
reported to the controller.

Cycle power. If condition persists, replace the
module. Call your local distributor or AllenBradley for assistance.
When an input or output module channel is enabled, the module
performs a diagnostic check to see that the channel has been properly
configured. In addition, the channel is tested on every scan for
configuration errors, over-range and under-range, open-circuit (input
module in 4 to 20 mA range only) and output wire broken/high load
resistance (output module only) conditions.
Out-of-Range Detection (Input and Output Modules)
For input modules, whenever the data received at the channel word is
out of the defined operating range, an over-range or under-range error
is indicated in input data word 5, bits 8 to 15.
For output modules, whenever the controller is driving data over or
under the defined operating range, an over-range or under-range error
is indicated in the input data word 1, bits 12 to 15.
Open-Circuit Detection (Input Module Only)
An open-circuit test is performed on all enabled channels configured
for 4 to 20 mA inputs. Whenever an open-circuit condition occurs, the
under-range bit for that channel is set in input data word 5.
Possible causes of an open circuit include:
• the sensing device may be broken
• a wire may be loose or cut
• the sensing device may not be installed on the configured
channel
Output Wire Broken/High Load Resistance (Output Module Only)
A check is performed on all enabled channels to determine if an
output wire is broken, or if the load resistance is high, in the case of
current mode outputs. Whenever one of these conditions is present,
the diagnostic bit for that channel is set in the input data word 0, bits
13 or 15.
Publication 1769-6.0
6-4
Module Diagnostics and Troubleshooting
Non-critical vs. Critical
Module Errors
Non-critical module errors are typically recoverable. Channel errors
(over-range or under-range errors) are non-critical. Non-critical error
conditions are indicated in the module input data table. Non-critical
configuration errors are indicated by the extended error code. See
Table 6.4, “Extended Error Codes,” on page 6-6.
Critical module errors are conditions that prevent normal or
recoverable operation of the system. When these types of errors
occur, the system typically leaves the run or program mode of
operation until the error can be dealt with. Critical module errors are
indicated in Table 6.4, “Extended Error Codes,” on page 6-6.
Module Error
Definition Table
Analog module errors are expressed in two fields as four-digit Hex
format with the most significant digit as “don’t care” and irrelevant.
The two fields are “Module Error” and “Extended Error Information”.

The purpose of the module error field is to classify module errors into
three distinct groups, as described in the table below. The type of
error determines what kind of information exists in the extended error
information field. These types of module errors are typically reported
in the controller’s I/O status file. Refer to your controller manual for
details.

Extended Error Information Field
Check the extended error information field when a non-zero value is
present in the module error field. Depending upon the value in the
module error field, the extended error information field can contain
error codes that are module-specific or common to all 1769 analog
modules.
Note:
If no errors are present in the module error field, the
extended error information field will be set to zero.
Hardware Errors
General or module-specific hardware errors are indicated by module
error code 2. See Table 6.4, “Extended Error Codes,” on page 6-6.
Configuration Errors
If you set the fields in the configuration file to invalid or unsupported
values, the module ignores the invalid configuration, generates a noncritical error, and keeps operating with the previous configuration.
Each type of analog module has different features and different error
codes. Table 6.4, “Extended Error Codes,” on page 6-6 lists the
possible module-specific configuration error codes defined for the
modules.

Two’s Complement Binary
Numbers
The processor memory stores 16-bit binary numbers. Two’s
complement binary is used when performing mathematical
calculations internal to the processor. Analog input values from
the analog modules are returned to the processor in 16-bit two’s
complement binary format. For positive numbers, the binary
notation and two’s complement binary notation are identical.
As indicated in the figure on the next page, each position in the
number has a decimal value, beginning at the right with 20 and
ending at the left with 215. Each position can be 0 or 1 in the
processor memory. A 0 indicates a value of 0; a 1 indicates the
decimal value of the position. The equivalent decimal value of the
binary number is the sum of the position values.
Positive Decimal Values
The far left position is always 0 for positive values. As indicated
in the figure below, this limits the maximum positive decimal
value to 32767 (all positions are 1 except the far left position).
For example:
0000 1001 0000 1110 = 211+28+23+22+21 = 2048+256+8+4+2 = 2318

Negative Decimal Values
In two’s complement notation, the far left position is always 1
for negative values. The equivalent decimal value of the
binary number is obtained by subtracting the value of the far
left position, 32768, from the sum of the values of the other
positions. In the figure below (all positions are 1), the value is
32767 - 32768 = -1. For example:
1111 1000 0010 0011 = (214+213+212+211+25+21+20) - 215 =
(16384+8192+4096+2048+32+2+1) - 32768 = 30755 - 32768 = 2013

Glossary
The following terms and abbreviations are used throughout this
manual. For definitions of terms not listed here refer to AllenBradley’s Industrial Automation Glossary, Publication AG-7.1.
A/D Converter– Refers to the analog to digital converter inherent to
the module. The converter produces a digital value whose magnitude
is proportional to the magnitude of an analog input signal.
alternate last state – A configuration selection that instructs the
module to convert a user-specified value from the channel fault or
program/idle word to the output value when the module enters the
fault or program mode.
analog input module – A module that contains circuits that convert
analog voltage or current input signals to digital values that can be
manipulated by the processor.
attenuation – The reduction in the magnitude of a signal as it passes
through a system.
bus connector – A 16-pin male and female connector that provides
electrical interconnection between the modules.
channel – Refers to analog input or output interfaces available on the
module’s terminal block. Each channel is configured for connection
to a variable voltage or current input or output device, and has its own
data and diagnostic status words.
channel update time – The time required for the module to sample
and convert the input signals of one enabled input channel and update
the channel data word.
common mode rejection – For analog inputs, the maximum level to
which a common mode input voltage appears in the numerical value
read by the processor, expressed in dB.
common mode rejection ratio – The ratio of a device’s differential
voltage gain to common mode voltage gain. Expressed in dB, CMRR
is a comparative measure of a device’s ability to reject interference
caused by a voltage common to its input terminals relative to ground.
CMRR=20 Log10 (V1/V2)
common mode voltage – For analog inputs, the voltage difference
between the negative terminal and analog common during normal
differential operation.
Publication 1769-6.0
Glossary-2
common mode voltage range – For analog inputs, the
largest voltage difference allowed between either the positive
or negative terminal and analog common during normal
differential operation.
configuration word – Contains the channel configuration
information needed by the module to configure and operate
each channel.
D/A Converter– Refers to the digital to analog converter
inherent to the output module. The converter produces an
analog dc voltage or current signal whose instantaneous
magnitude is proportional to the magnitude of a digital value.
dB – (decibel) A logarithmic measure of the ratio of two
signal levels.
data echo – The analog value currently being converted by
the D/A converter and shown in words 2 and 3 of the output
module’s input data file. Under normal operating conditions,
the data echo value is the same value that is being sent from
the bus master to the output module.
data word – A 16-bit integer that represents the value of the
analog input or output channel. The channel data word is
valid only when the channel is enabled and there are no
channel errors. When the channel is disabled the channel data
word is cleared (0).
differential operation – The difference in voltage between a
channel’s positive terminal and negative terminal.
digital filter – A low-pass filter incorporated into the A/D
converter. The digital filter provides very steep roll-off above
it’s cut-off frequency, which provides high frequency noise
rejection.
filter – A device that passes a signal or range of signals and
eliminates all others.
filter frequency – (-3 dB frequency) The user-selectable
frequency.
full scale – The magnitude of voltage or current over which
normal operation is permitted.
full scale error – (gain error) The difference in slope
between the actual and ideal analog transfer functions.
full scale range – (FSR) The difference between the
maximum and minimum specified analog input values.
Publication 1769-6.0
Glossary-3
hold last state – A configuration selection that instructs the
module to keep the outputs at the last converted value prior to
the condition that caused the control system to enter the fault
or program mode.
input image – The input from the module to the controller.
The input image contains the module data words and status
bits.
LSB – (Least Significant Bit) The bit that represents the
smallest value within a string of bits. For analog modules, 16bit, two’s complement binary codes are used in the I/O image
in the card.
For analog inputs, the LSB is defined as the rightmost bit, bit
0, of the 16-bit field. For analog outputs, the three rightmost
bits are not significant, and the LSB is defined as the third bit
from the right, bit 2, of the 16-bit field.
linearity error – An analog input or output is composed of a
series of voltage or current values corresponding to digital
codes. for an ideal analog input or output, the values lie in a
straight line spaced by a voltage or current corresponding to 1
LSB. Any deviation of the converted input or actual output
from this line is the linearity error of the input or output. The
linearity is expressed in percent of full scale input or output.
See the variation from the straight line due to linearity error
(exaggerated) in the example below.
Actual Transfer
Function
Ideal Transfer
Function
number of significant bits – The power of two that
represents the total number of completely different digital
codes an analog signal can be converted into or generated
from.
module scan time – same as module update time
module update time – For input modules, the time required
for the module to sample and convert the input signals of all
enabled input channels and make the resulting data values
available to the processor. For output modules, the time
required for the module to receive the digital code from the
processor, convert it to the analog output signal, and send it to
the output channel.
Publication 1769-6.0
Glossary-4
multiplexer – An switching system that allows several
signals to share a common A/D or D/A converter.
normal mode rejection – (differential mode rejection) A
logarithmic measure, in dB, of a device’s ability to reject
noise signals between or among circuit signal conductors.
normal operating range – Input or output signals are within
the configured range. See page 1-2 for a list of input and
output types/ranges.
overall accuracy – The worst-case deviation of the output
voltage or current from the ideal over the full output range is
the overall accuracy. For inputs, the worst-case deviation of
the digital representation of the input signal from the ideal
over the full input range is the overall accuracy. this is
expressed in percent of full scale.
Gain error, offset error, and linearity error all contribute to
input and output channel accuracy.
output accuracy – The difference between the actual analog
output value and what is expected, when a given digital code
is applied to the d/a converter. Expressed as a ± percent of full
scale. The error will include gain, offset and drift elements,
and is defined at 25°C, and also over the full operating
temperature range (0 to 60°C).
output image – The output from the controller to the output
module. The output image contains the analog output data.
analog output module – An I/O module that contains
circuits that output an analog dc voltage or current signal
proportional to a digital value transferred to the module from
the processor.
repeatability – The closeness of agreement among repeated
measurements of the same variable under the same
conditions.
resolution – The smallest detectable change in a
measurement, typically expressed in engineering units (e.g. 1
mV) or as a number of bits. For example a 12-bit system has
4096 possible output states. It can therefore measure 1 part in
4096.
status word – Contains status information about the
channel’s current configuration and operational state. You
can use this information in your ladder program to determine
whether the channel data word is valid.
Publication 1769-6.0
Glossary-5
step response time – For inputs, this is the time required for
the channel data word signal to reach a specified percentage
of its expected final value, given a large step change in the
input signal.
update time – see “module update time”
