Introduction to the PowerText Panel
The PowerText Panels provide a man-machine interface to your PLC automation
system. The panels provide features such as 5 user-defined pushbuttons with
LED indicators, arrow adjust buttons, and a built-in menu system. The panels
communicate with a PLC using either RS-232C or RS-422A/485A serial
communication. Configuration software and panel programming are covered
in chapter 5 of this manual.
The panels allow you to configure up to 256 20-character text strings configured
as PLC Messages and Local Messages. Local Messages are internal panel
messages that the operator can scroll in a menu tree hierarchy. PLC Messages
are displayed when prompted from the PLC program. A PLC Message LED
illuminates whenever a PLC Message is being displayed. Either message
type can have up to three embedded data variables, one of which can be
edited by using the arrow adjust buttons.
The panels have sealed membrane function pushbuttons that allow you to
trigger PLC actions with the push of a button. These pushbuttons are used for
input signals to the PLC. Each pushbutton can be configured to function as
one of three switch types:
•
ALTERNATE—keeps its current state until the button is pushed
again
•
MOMENTARY— is activated only while the button is being pushed
•
PANEL SET AND PLC RELEASE —sets a bit in the PLC when
pressed and is reset by either the PLC program or by pressing the
button again.
The LCD display window supports two or four message lines that can display
up to 20 characters each. The messages are programmed using the Text
Panel Programming Software. The message control type may be either static—
text displays that have NO embedded data, dynamic —text messages that
include embedded data (READ access only), or interactive —text messages
that allow the operator to enter data, or change values that are stored in the
PLC registers (READ/WRITE access).
The PowerText Panel is available in a variety of models to suit your application.
Key features are provided on page 7.

Front Panel Features
In this section, we will describe the front panel features of the PowerText Panel.
Descriptions of the PLC Message LED, Pushbuttons, Pushbutton LEDs, PLC
Messages, and Local Messages are provided. To understand the Features,
see Chapter 3, Learning the Features. For a demonstration of how to program
the panel indicators and controls, please refer to Chapter 4, Tutorial.
Operator Controls and Indicators
Each PowerText Panel provides sealed membrane Pushbuttons for operator
interface with a PLC. Pushbuttons may be used to begin events or tasks within
the PLC, such as Start/Stop Control. Pushbutton inputs are monitored for ON/
OFF conditions in your PLC ladder logic program. Text Panel Pushbuttons are
Control Pushbuttons or Function Pushbuttons.

PLC Message LED
This LED will illuminate to indicate that the PLC
has triggered a message that will be displayed
in the LCD window. The pushbuttons are
disabled for 3 seconds after a PLC message
is displayed to ensure that the operator sees
the message. The LED will turn OFF when the
operator presses the escape pushbutton,
thereby acknowledging message received.

MAN-PTEXT-HDW
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
Control Pushbuttons
There are 4 Control Pushbuttons on the front panel. These buttons consist of
an esc (escape), ▲ (UP Arrow), ▼ (DOWN Arrow), and enter pushbutton. The
arrow buttons are used to scroll through local massages or to change a value
within an interactive message. As the operator presses the buttons, the numeric
value will increment or decrement, respectively. As it is adjusted, the value
WILL NOT BE UPDATED in the PLC data register until the enter pushbutton is
pressed. When completed, the operator will press the enter pushbutton and
the value will be written to the PLC. Press esc to abort or cancel the adjustment
without writing the value to the PLC.
Function Pushbuttons
There are 5 Function Pushbuttons that are user-defined. They may be
configured as one of three “switch” types; Alternate, Momentary, or Panel
Set & PLC Release (described on page 65.) They are configured as discrete
input signals to the PLC. These pushbuttons are labeled F1 through F5 or
may be custom labeled to suit their function or application.
LEDs
Function
Pushbuttons
Pushbutton LEDs
There are LEDs located above each of the user-defined pushbuttons. These
LEDs can indicate if the pushbutton status condition is ON or OFF, or it can be
controlled independently by a PLC. You may choose the type of LED Control
while configuring your panel (see Configuration, Chapter 5). There are three
different controls—By Button, By Button & Flash, or By PLC, that will
determine LED response when the pushbuttons are pressed.
Character LCD Display with LED Backlight
Messages display in the Character
LCD Display Window with LED
Backlight. The LCD window supports
two line by twenty characters (2X20N
or 2X20L models), or four line by
twenty character (4X20N models)
messages.
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
11
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
Messages
PLC Messages can be programmed to display PLC register values and allow
the operator to change a PLC register value. Up to 3 data variables can be
programmed to display in each message. The messages are entered using
PowerText Programming Software. Up to 256 PLC Messages may be
configured and stored in the Panel (Local Messages take away from the 256
total messages.) PLC Messages are numbered 1 to 256. The message control
type may be static text, dynamic, or interactive. The PLC logic program controls
which messages are displayed. The PLC Message LED illuminates when a
PLC generated message is being displayed.
Local Messages are also displayed in the LCD Display Window. Local
Messages provide pertinent information or instructions to the operator and are
displayed in a menu hierarchy. They can also be programmed to display values
from a PLC register that the operator may change using the Panel control
buttons. You may create Folders to group messages pertaining to the same
topic. Local Messages and Folders can be grouped in up to 3 levels using the
PowerText Programming Software. The first character in a Folder message
display is a “+” or “–” indicating folder status (closed or open). The next 19
characters of the display are for the Folder text (Messages do not have a + or
-, so all 20 characters can be used for text.) Local Messages allow the operator
to select and initiate user-defined interaction. See Chapter 3, Learning the
Features, for more information.
Rear Panel Indicators
TXD LED
This LED will toggle “on” and “off” to signal activity
on the transmission line.
RXD LED
This LED will toggle “on” and “off” to signal activity
on the receive line.

Custom Labels
Create Custom Labels
You may create custom labels for the PowerText Panel Function Pushbuttons
that are particular to their function within your application. The labels slide into
an existing slot in the panel overlay so that the text or numbers you have printed
will rest over the pushbuttons.
A Microsoft Word® document (POWERTEXT_INSERTS.doc) was installed
in the PowerText Panel’s Program folder on your computer when you
installed your programming software. You must have Word installed on
your computer to open this document. This document will help you create
your labels. Two sheets of cover stock have also been shipped with your
panel.
Install Custom Labels
A 1/2-inch x 4-inch flat metal tool (ramp tool) is shipped with each unit to
aid in the installation of the label inserts.
To install the pushbutton labels into the slots, perform the following steps.
16
1.
Remove four screws from front bezel assembly and set aside.
2.
Remove front bezel assembly.
3.
The recessed slot(s) where the labels are inserted should now be
visible.
4.
Remove the factory installed label insert.
5.
Use the corner of the ramp tool to lift the top layer of the overlay, just
enough to start the custom label into the slot. Hold the overlay up
with the ramp tool and start the custom label into the slot.
6.
Once the label has been started into the slot, move the ramp tool
behind the label insert and use as a ramp to guide the label insert
into the slot until properly positioned.
7.
Push label tab down into slot with the ramp tool.
8.
Replace the front bezel assembly and secure with the 4 screws.

EMI Noise Filter Installation
PowerText Panels are supplied with two ferrite cores that should be attached
to the cables prior to installation of the Panel. These cores are required to
suppress EMI emissions that are conducted through the Power Cable and the
Communications Cable. The figure, below, shows the ferrite cores properly
installed. Attach the cores within one inch of the Panel connector. The cable
should be snugly wrapped once around the core, providing two passes through
the core.
The Power Cable Core is a solid ferrite cylinder. The Power Cable should
pass once through the core, be looped around and pass through a second
time. Pull the excess cable so that it rests snugly against the outside of the
core.
The Communications Cable Core is a snap-together, split, ferrite core. This
core can be installed on a finished cable. Lift the latch to open the core. Wrap
the wire through the core center, snugly around the outside, and again through
the center. Close the core until the latch snaps. Ensure that the cable jacket is
not pinched between the two halves of the core. The finished cable should
look similar to the drawing shown below.

Connector
This block style connector is used to connect an external 24 VDC power supply. The connector with screw terminals is provided with your PowerText Panel
and allows you to plug into the power receptacle. A pinout is shown below. An
external power supply is adapted to supply operating voltage to the Panel.
The power supply must deliver a range of 20 to 30 VDC.
In multi-panel applications, if separate power supplies are used, please ensure the electrical ground common does not have a great potential difference.
In a multi-panel application, the power supply must maintain the specified voltage and current consumption under all conditions (this includes powerup) for
each of the individual units. Please refer to the specifications on page 13 for
the individual units.

Serial Port
The Serial Port may be used to connect your panel to a programming computer (PC) or a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). You will only need to
connect to a PC when you initially configure and program the panel. The
Serial Port is then available for connection to the PLC. When you power up the
panel, it will come up in RUN Mode. While in RUN Mode the Serial Port will
only communicate with a PLC. To program the panel and have the Serial Port
communicate with a PC, you will have to enter the SETUP Mode (see following
paragraph).
Connect a Programming PC
To program the PowerText Panel, you must put the panel into SETUP Mode.
When the panel is powered up, it will be operating in the RUN Mode. To enter
the SETUP Mode, you must press and hold the UP Arrow button while simultaneously pressing the DOWN Arrow button. (Please Note: While in the SETUP
Mode you may also adjust the screen contrast by pressing the UP or DOWN
Arrow buttons—ensure that you are in SETUP Mode!)
The Panel is configured using a PC running the PowerText Programming Software. When you are ready to download the program, connect the programming cable (P/N CBL-PTEXT-001) to the serial port of the panel and the serial
port of the PC. A wiring diagram follows.

Learning the Features
In this section, we will help you to learn and understand the Features of the
PowerText Panels. Details for using pushbuttons, LEDs, PLC messages, and
Local Messages are discussed. We recommend that you read this chapter
well before you attempt to configure and use the Panel features and controls.
As you proceed through this section, relate the topics discussed with how you
will implement your panel.
Regardless of the PLC product type, the concepts discussed here are applicable.
DirectLogic PLCs are used in any examples of addressing and ladder logic,
but the principles can be applied to any type PLC. Once again, this section is
showing “concepts” for using the panel features. For complete DirectLogic
examples and other PLC solutions, such as Allen-Bradley, please refer to the
PLC manufacturer’s manual.

Memory Mapping/PLC Data Registers
The PowerText Panels communicate with the PLC through user-defined PLC
data registers. PLC registers are assigned during configuration using the Text
Panel Programming Software. For discrete operations, such as pushbuttons
and LEDs, the register bits are accessed by the PLC control program. The
following page shows how the pushbuttons and LEDs are assigned to the PLC
bit registers.
28
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
Pushbuttons
Pushbuttons use one 16-bit register. All bit designations are depicted in octal
(0–7 and 10–17). Use bits 0 through 15 for PLCs using decimal numbering.
Address used here must be READ/WRITE.

The PLC resets the panel button by setting this
bit in the ladder program.
Panel Acknowledge Button Release:
ACK F1 is set by the Panel (Bit 10 in Button Word).
This is the panel acknowledging to the PLC that
it has reset the button.
PLC Message Registers
The 2X20N, 2X20L, and 4X20N panels have 2 or 4 lines of PLC Message
display. Each message line references a user-defined register in the PLC.
The registers are assigned using the PowerText Programming Software. The
panel monitors each register for a value (message number) and displays the
message associated with the value (i.e., a value of 3 displays message 3).
Embedded Data Registers
Each message can have up to three embedded data values, DATA 1, DATA 2,
and DATA 3. Embedded data registers are user-defined.
DATA 1 (Two 16-Bit Registers, READ/WRITE)
This is a PLC register that contains the first of three possible embedded data
values on a line for the message displayed. DATA 1 can be set as a READ/
WRITE Register allowing the operator to change a data value. It can also be
set to READ ONLY. This is the only data value that has this option.

PLC CONTROLLED DECIMAL POINT (16-Bit Register)
This is a register in the PLC for controlling a decimal point within an
embedded data value (DATA 1 only). One register holds the value and the
other controls the decimal point. The register addresses are assigned
from the Message Edit screen as shown above. No ASCII characters are
allowed in DATA 1 with a PLC controlled decimal point.
DATA 2 (Two 16-Bit Registers, READ ONLY)
This is a PLC register that contains the second of three possible embedded
data values on a line for the message displayed. You may manually insert a
decimal point. The PLC Address and Data Type are assigned from the
Message Edit screen, shown above.
DATA 3 (Two 16-Bit Registers, READ ONLY)
This is a PLC register that contains the third of three possible embedded data
values on a line for the message displayed. You may manually insert a decimal
point. The PLC Address and Data Type are assigned from the Message Edit
screen, shown above.

Embedded Data
The user message contains the
ASCII characters and optional
embedded data to be displayed. The
NOTE:
embedded data can be up to 3
different values — DATA 1, DATA 2,

double words in each
data set. You can
choose a 32-bit integer address BCD
and Binary. The
range for 32-bit Binary is 4294967295
(a 10-digit value can
be used). The range
for 32-bit BCD is 0 –
99999999 (an 8-digit
value can be used).
Special characters in the message
determine where the embedded data
from the registers should go. When
programming, each character for
DATA 1 values will be represent by
a “1” for up to ten digits. (See note
to the left.) For example, if you want
to display a five digit value from the
PLC, you will press Ctrl + 1 or F5,
five times, and “11111” will display in
your message (in red) representing
the five digit value.
Only DATA 1’s embedded value can be Interactive (READ/WRITE register),
meaning that data values will display and can be changed from the message.
DATA 2 and DATA 3 are Dynamic (READ ONLY register) meaning that they
will display a value, but the value cannot be changed from the message. DATA
2 values are entered into the message by pressing Ctrl +2 or F6, and are
represented by a “2” for each numeric digit, displayed in blue. DATA 3 values
are entered into the message by pressing Ctrl +3 or F7, and are represented
by a “3” for each numeric digit, displayed in green. Again, these values can be
up to ten digits. Data values are only represented by a “1,” “2,” or “3” when you
are programming the message. The actual values will be displayed on the
PowerText Panel LCD Display window, or will be blank if no value is present.
(Password Protection is only available with PowerText Panel Model 2X20K.)
For DATA 1, you can select a minimum and maximum range for the embedded
data value. The Maximum is to test for the upper limit for the data value and
Minimum is to test for the lower limit for the data value. This will let the user
update the value between the ranges. Data values are incremented or
decremented with the UP/DOWN Arrow Buttons.
Also for DATA 1, you can choose to have the Decimal Point in the value
controlled by the PLC, or you can manually insert it in the message.

POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
Message Types
There are three types of messages: Static, Dynamic, and Interactive identify
the different message types.
Static Messages
Static Messages are text displays that have
NO embedded data. The Static Message
may be displayed when an event or condition
becomes true. You will enter the messages
using the PowerText Panel Programming
Software.
Dynamic Messages
Dynamic messages are text messages that
include embedded data. These messages
are used to display values from the PLC
(READ only access to a PLC register). This
data is information that helps the operator
closely monitor and/or control the machine
or process.
SYSTEM RUNNING
Zone 1 Temp. : 753
Data Value update from
PLC register
Embedded Data Values in messages can be of two types — BCD
or Binary. DATA 1 can have a decimal point controlled by the PLC
or manually inserted. DATA 2 and DATA 3 allow you to manually
insert a decimal point. The maximum number of data values per
message is three. Data type and decimal points are programmed
when configuring the message from the Message Edit screen.
Interactive Messages
(With an embedded DATA 1 value, only).
An Interactive Message is commonly
used for operator data entry. This type
of message is used for changing values
that are stored in the PLC registers
(READ/WRITE access). These values
are typically; Setpoint, Upper and Lower
Limits, etc. Interactive Messages may be
configured to enter data using the UP/
DOWN Arrow buttons.
Enter New Temp. = 300
Data value entered
by operator
Displaying PLC Messages
PLC Messages are triggered by the PLC. The PLC Message LED will illuminate
to let you know that the PLC has generated the message. You cannot press
the esc key to exit the PLC Message mode until 3 seconds after the message
has been triggered. This delay is to ensure that the message has been seen
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
33
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
by the operator. After the 3 seconds, press the esc key and you will return to
Local Message mode. If you press the esc key again, the last PLC Message
will be redisplayed.
Static Message Operation
To display a Static PLC message, you simply put the message number (1–
256) in the appropriate PLC register. These messages are text only, no
embedded data.
Dynamic Message Operation
Dynamic messages are text messages that include embedded data. These
messages present the operator with important PLC data. You may program
message numbers 1–256 to be used as dynamic messages. Dynamic
messages may be displayed on either the top or bottom line. The maximum
number of digits that may be displayed is 8 for BCD/Int 32, 4 for BCD/Int 16, 10
for Binary/Int 32, or 5 for Binary/Int 16. Use the PowerText Programming
Software to configure Dynamic messages. See Section 5, Configuration for
more information.
Interactive Message Operation
An interactive message is a text display that allows operator data entry. Use
these messages to enter or change values that are stored in PLC registers.
When the interactive message is displayed, the operator can enter data. Check
the PLC product user manual to verify which data formats are supported.
Depending on the PLC, the data format will be either Binary or BCD (Binary
Coded Decimal). Five digits may be entered in a 16-bit register using Binary
data format or ten in a 32-bit Binary data format. Four digits may be entered in
a 16-bit register using BCD data format or eight digits in a 32-bit register using
BCD data format.
Interactive messages are configured within the Text Panel Programming
Software by embedding a DATA 1 value in a PLC message. An interactive
message requires that you define the Format (Binary or BCD), and Decimal
Point Position. There are two types of decimal point placements — PLC
controlled and fixed placement (decimal point entered between characters when
configuring the message). A PLC controlled decimal is only allowed in DATA
1. DATA 2 and DATA 3 allow you to enter a fixed point (manually inserted). Two
PLC registers are used to store PLC controlled decimal point values, one for
the data value and the other for decimal point control. When the decimal point
is PLC controlled it must be configured in your PLC logic program. For more
information, see Chapter 5, Configuration, or your PLC Configuration Manual.
Arrow Adjustment Entry
Arrow adjust is often used when minimum and maximum setpoint ranges are
required or a setpoint value requires only minor adjustment. These arrow
adjustments are only possible using the UP or DOWN Arrow pushbuttons. As
34
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
you press the UP and DOWN Arrow pushbuttons, the numeric value will
increment (up) or decrement (down) one count at a time. When the UP/DOWN
Arrow buttons are used to increment or decrement a value, the cursor is disabled
and will not be visible again until you press enter, esc, or return from an error
or PLC message. Also, the longer you hold the key down, the faster the count
will increase. When the adjustment is complete, press the enter pushbutton,
and the value will be placed in the data register for display and the bit is set.
PLC Message LED
The PLC Message LED will illuminate any time a PLC message is being
displayed. When you press the esc key, after a PLC Message has been
displayed, the panel will return to the Local Message mode. To redisplay the
PLC Message, press esc again.
Displaying Local Messages
In a Local Message, the first message (root level) or folder in the hierarchy is
displayed on the top line at start up and the following message or folder is
displayed on the second line.
A plus (+) is displayed in front of a folder’s or subfolder’s name if it is closed. If
a folder or subfolder is open, a minus (–) is placed in front of the name. Any
messages within that folder will be displayed below it.
+Local Folder 1
+Local Folder 2
–Local Folder 2
Local Message 2.1
Therefore, a folder is limited to 19 characters after the + or -, a message allows
20 characters. (The PowerText Programming Software only allows 19
characters for folder text when you are configuring the Local Messages.)
You may use the UP/DOWN Arrow buttons to scroll down to the next message
in that folder. At the end of the messages for that folder, you can press the esc
button to move to the previous folder or level.
The Local Message menu hierarchy can only extend three levels deep (after
the root level) but each folder (level 1 and level 2) may have many subfolders
or messages on that level. Folder level 3 may have many messages, but no
folders. Messages can contain up to three embedded data values. See the
following examples of a menu tree and how it may appear from within the
PowerText Programming Software and how it may appear on your display.

ACC-PTEXT-EDIT. The software is used to download your configuration before
connecting the panel and communicating with a PLC. Help Topics are provided
to help you configure your panel. You design and configure your Panel program
off-line and save it to disk. The program may then be transferred to the
PowerText Panel. To install PowerText Programming Software, perform the
following steps:
•
Place the CD into your CD ROM Drive. The install
program should launch automatically. If it does not,
perform the following steps:
1
From Windows click on the Start Button, and then
click on Run from the menu. The Run dialog box will
pop up.

22. For Step 1, choose to configure a Local or PLC Message. Local
Messages are messages stored in the panel in a menu hierarchy and
provide information and instructions to the operator. PLC Messages
are triggered by a value in a PLC register. The PLC Message LED
will illuminate to tell the operator that the PLC has triggered a message.
The buttons will not respond for 3 seconds after the PLC Message
has been triggered to ensure that the operator has a chance to read
the message. See step 16 (next step) to program a PLC Message.
To program a Local Message, perform the following steps.

The PowerText Panel features an AUTO-RESET fuse (0.65 Amp polyfuse). It
is reset by removing power for 5 minutes and then reapplying power to the
unit.
Precautions
To ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the panel, please take note of the
following precautions:
•
•
•
•
Do not press sharp objects against the pushbuttons or screen
overlay.
Do not strike the panel with hard objects.
Do not press the pushbuttons or screen overlay with excessive
force.
Once the panel is mounted and has power applied, do not place
any objects over the ventilation slots. This will result in heat buildup
and may damage the unit.
Screen Overlay/Chemical Compatibility
The screen overlay has a polycarbonate surface. The following list is provided
to make you aware of the general compatibility between chemicals that may
be present in your work environment and the polyester surface of the overlay.
Use the chart to determine those chemicals that are safe to use around your
Panel and those that may harm the overlay. The list rates these chemicals as

In this section we will explain how to isolate potential problems. If you cannot
isolate and remedy the problem using the procedures we have outlined below,
call technical support. For a list of PowerText Panel, PowerText Programming
Software, and PLC Driver Error Messages, see Appendix C.
Panel Configuration Problems
PowerText Programming Software is used to create panel applications and to
download/upload panel programs. If you are online with the PowerText Panel
and communication fails, the following error message is displayed:
If you receive this PowerText Programming Software error message, check
the following:
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
1.
On the rear panel of the unit, observe Serial Port Communication
TXD/RXD LEDs while attempting to Upload/Download a program.
Both LEDs should be slowly and alternately flashing to indicate that
the programming PC and the panel are connected. If the TXD
(transmitter) LED is the only one flashing, or if the TXD/RXD LEDs
are NOT alternating between flashes, check to ensure that the
PowerText Panel is set to the Setup (programming) Mode. (To enter
the Setup Mode, press and hold the UP Arrow Button while
simultaneously pressing the DOWN Arrow button.)
2.
Check to ensure that the programming cable (part number CBLPTEXT-001) is properly connected at both ends.
3.
Check that the correct communications port is selected with the Text
Panel Programming Software (i.e., COM1, COM2)
4.
Check the 24 VDC power source and its connections.
5.
After completing steps 1 through 4, above, repeat the procedure to
Upload/Download a program.
83
POWERTEXT 2X20N, 2X20L, & 4X20N PANELS
PLC Errors
If you experience communication problems between the Panel and your PLC,
you will receive an error message that is unique to that particular PLC. Look
in the Appendix C of this manual, or the PowerText Programming Software
Help for error messages for your type PLC. Each PLC Help topic lists the
error messages and provides an explanation for each PLC driver. To access
the PLC Help topics, perform the following steps.
a.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
MAN-PTEXT-HDW
1.
How do I format an address string when connecting to multiple
PLCs?
Add the PLC station number to the beginning of the address string. Ex:
PLC station is 3 and the address is V2000 the string would look like this,
3-V2000.
2.
Can I convert a project from one Panel type to another?
Yes, to do this simply change the panel type from one to another. This
will keep all address and message information intact. The only exception
is switching from any of the panels to the Set Point panel. This will cause
all messages and addressing to be deleted. Note: Switching panel types
does not create a new project. If you wish to create a new project select
NEW from the FILE menu.
3.
Can I connect multiple panels to a single PLC?
Yes, there are two methods of doing this. The first would be to use the
Multiplexer (P/N UPT-05MUX-001). You can connect up to five panels per
multiplexer, and one multiplexer per serial port. The second method is to
connect one panel per serial port.
4.
What is the maximum number of messages I can have in a project?
The maximum amount of PLC and Local messages is 256.
5.
What are Local Messages?
A Local Message is a text message that is used to provide instructions or
information to the machine operator using a hierarchical file structure.
The operator can scroll through these messages using the arrow keys to
find information pertaining to a particular part of a process.
6.
What are PLC Messages?
A PLC Message is a text message that can be triggered by the PLC to
provide the operator with important instructions, information, or warnings.
By default, PLC Messages will be displayed for 3 seconds before they
can be cleared in order to make sure the operator has a chance to read
the message. (See question 13, below for information on how to disable
this option.) The operator can also view the last PLC Message displayed
by pressing the ESC key.
7.
How many characters can I have per message?
The maximum number of characters per message is 20. This is true for
all messages except folder names. They are limited to 19 because of the
plus "+" or minus "-" sign displayed in front of the folder name.

I am using a UPT-2X20N-001 panel and I can not access the
password option. How do I do this?
The only panel that can have password protection is the keypad panel
(P/N UPT-2X20K-001). This is because the 2X20K is the only panel that
has a keypad usable for data entry.
9.
What is the maximum number of Embedded Data values I can have
in a project?
The maximum number of Embedded Data values in a project is 300.
10. How do I get my panel into Setup Mode?
To get the panel into Setup Mode press and hold the up arrow key while
simultaneously pressing the down arrow key. To exit Setup Mode, press
the ESC key.
11. How do I get my panel to display PLC Messages?
To display a PLC message, using your ladder logic, place the number of
the PLC Message you wish to display into one of the PLC Message Line
Addresses (up to four if using the 4X20N model). When the message
number is placed in this register the panel will display the message
corresponding with that number.
Example: I want to display PLC Message One on Line One of my panel
display. Using the ladder logic, I write a value of 1 to register V2000,
which is set as PLC Message Line Address One. The panel displays
PLC Message One on Line One of my panel display. The message will
remain on the display until the ESC key is pressed.
12. Why won’t the panel display the same PLC Message twice in a row
on the same message line?
This is because the message line must be reset by either setting the
Line Register to zero, or by changing the value in the Line Register to
some unused PLC Message number.
13. Why do PLC Messages not clear when the ESC key is pressed?
The panel locks out all key presses for 3
seconds after a PLC Message is displayed
in order to ensure the operator has a
chance to read the message. Pressing
ESC 3 seconds after the PLC Message is
displayed will display the Local Message
screen. If you want to disable this feature,
open your project in PowerText
Programming Software and go to the Panel System PLC Address
Setup screen and click in the box in front of PLC Message Delay to
remove the check mark and disable this option.

14. Do the PowerText Panels support discrete addresses?
No, the PowerText Panels do not support discrete addresses. All
addressing for the PowerText Panels must be in Word format.
15. How do I insert a PLC Message?
In order to insert a PLC Message, there must be a gap in the message
numbers. For example, I have PLC Message #1 and PLC Message #3
programmed. If I click on PLC Message #3 and click the INSERT A PLC
MESSAGE button, PLC Message #2 will be inserted between PLC
Messages 1 and 3.
16. Can I renumber PLC Messages?
Yes, you can renumber PLC Messages; however, when changing a
message number to a higher message number, all unused lower
message numbers will be sent as “blank” messages when the project is
transferred to the panel. Blank messages will count towards the
maximum number of allowed messages in a project (256).
17. Can you copy and paste messages?
Yes, you can copy and paste messages. Currently, however, you can
copy or paste only one message at a time. (This may be changed to
multiple message and folders in the future.)
18. It is hard to read the display on my panel. It’s too bright. Is there a
way to adjust the contrast?
Yes, to adjust the contrast on the display, simply place the panel into
Setup Mode. While in Setup Mode you can use the up and down arrow
keys to adjust the contrast.

and wait for the specific time-out period before reporting this command. The command ID causing this
error is reported. CMD 0xAA=READ CMD 0XA2=WRITE.
0x0010 Invalid PLC attributes - using defaults
This will occur if the PLC driver receives an invalid set of attributes. The default attributes will be used
when this occurs.
0x0020 PLC bad checksum CMD=X
This occurs when a reply with an invalid checksum is received by the unit. The command ID of the
command that incurred the error is reported as part of the message. CMD 0XAA=Read CMD
0XA2=Write.
0x0040 PLC Error STS=XX EXTSTS=XX CMD=ZZ
This is reported when a controller responds to a command with an error. The error code is shown and
can be looked up in the Allen-Bradley documentation. The command ID of the command causing the
error is reported. CMD 0XAA=Read, CMD 0XA2=Write.
0x0080 PLC Nack Error
This error is reported when a controller responds to a command with a negative acknowledgment.
0x0100 PLC element read-only
This is reported when an attempt is made to write to an element with a read-only map entry. Read-only
map entries are: input file, output file, and all discrete entries. The driver can only read discrete entries,
it cannot write to a single bit within a word.
