ST800 Guidance Notes
Introduction
The following pages summarize how to use the new ST800 traffic controller from
Siemens. It assumes knowledge of the T400 and therefore concentrates on the
differences between the two types of controller.
Following these pages is a blank Fault Report form. We would be grateful if you
could complete a copy of this form and fax it back to Poole when you first install the
ST800 controller and after any subsequent visit you make to the site. This will allow
us to compile a history of each controller to help diagnose any problems which may
occur.
For more information, and if you have any problems, do not hesitate to contact me,
Paul Cox, on Poole (01202) 782621.
The T400 was limited to 16 phases, 4 phases per card, whereas the ST800 lamp
switch cards provide 8 phases each, giving a total of 32, with the first 26 phases
labelled ‘A’ to ‘Z’ leaving the last six labelled ‘A2’ to ‘F2’.
Initialization
We strongly suggest that the controller’s ‘Self Test’ facility is used before the
controller is powered up normally for the first time. Details of how to use the self test
facility are described later in this document.
When an ST800 controller is switched on for the first time, it will log a fault and not
illuminate the signals without operator intervention. Within this document there is a
complete list of all the faults reported by the ST800.
It will power-up logging memory faults and ‘New Firmware’ since the contents of
RAM are corrupt, i.e. are not what the processor is expecting. These faults can be
cleared in the usual way by typing ‘RFL=1↵’ and switching the power off and back
on. The clock will also need to be set-up and this is also described in this document.
Note that the initialization commands (TKE, etc.) are only required to initialize the
controller after its configuration PROM has been changed. These commands will
have no effect at any other time, i.e. they can no longer be used to re-initialize a
controller which is working normally. Also note that these commands will be rejected
with a ‘*L’ error if the signals on/off switch on the manual panel is still in the ‘on’
position. Therefore...
Do not change any timings or other settings on the
controller on the assumption that they can all be reset back
to the PROM settings by entering the initialisation
commands.
This document also contains information on the LED’s on the front of the main
processor card and the connectors on the back of the power distribution units, the
lamp switch cards and the main processor card.

Connections
The following diagrams detail the connections on the back of the power distribution
unit and the back of one of the lamp switch cards. The back of all the lamp switch
cards are identical, except it should be noted that the ZXO wires, the output from the
lamp supply monitoring transformer (LSupp) and the Solar Cell input must be
connected to the first lamp switch card.

Main Processor LED’s
There are four LED’s on the front of the main processor card.
The top one is green and is labelled ‘PP’ for power present. This LED will flash
giving a heartbeat indication that the firmware is running normally.
If it does not illuminate, then there is no power to the main processor card. Check
that controller is powered and that the power connector is inserted into the back of
the processor card.
The other three LED's are red and identify various fault conditions.
The top red LED is labelled ‘SE’ for system error. This will illuminate during the
power-up sequence and then will normally be extinguished when the controller is
running normally with no faults present in its fault log.
The middle red LED is labelled ‘BE’ for bus error. This LED should only illuminate if
the processor has problems executing the firmware, e.g. when the firmware PROM
is missing.
The bottom red LED is labelled ‘WD’ for watchdog. This LED will be illuminated
when the hardware watchdog circuit times-out. Note that when the firmware detects
a serious fault, it will extinguish the lights and stop ‘kicking’ the hardware watchdog
deliberately so that it times-out and also keeps the lights off.

ST800 Guidance Notes
Self Test
The self test facility can be used to check the hardware fitted to the controller, even
without a configuration PROM fitted. It has been designed to be used in both the
factory by production and on the street by field services.
Self test is initiated by holding down the level 3 access button while switching the
controller’s power on. The button should be released once the green heartbeat LED
starts to flash.
The green heartbeat LED will continue to flash during the self test unless a fault is
detected when the red system error LED illuminates.
A 20 character by 4 line handset connected will display information about the checks
it is performing, such as the firmware issue and the lamp supply voltage, both dim
and bright, and detail any faults found.
Self test performs the checks detailed on the following pages and will report the error
messages shown if faults have been detected.
Resolving problems with lamp switch cards and triacs:
When various tests fail, the handset may display information such as:
← identifies the test which has failed
← outputs from the red voltage monitors
← outputs from the amber voltage monitors
← outputs from the green voltage monitors
V/Mons Off...Failed
R-00000000+00000400
A-00000000+00000000
G-00000400+00000000
The numbers are in hexadecimal notation and so each of the eight digits encodes
four phases and each possible combination of the four phases is encoded to a value
as follows:F2E2D2C2 B2A2ZY XWVU TSRQ PONM LKJI HGFE DCBA

So in the above example, the voltage monitor for phase K red on the positive peak
and phase K green on the negative peak is stuck on, i.e. the second board is faulty.
General Lamp Switch Card Failures:
Should one of the general tests on the lamp switch cards fail, try repeating the self
test with only the first lamp switch card connected and then repeat this with each
board (and ribbon cable) in turn until the faulty card (or ribbon cable) is detected.
Note that it is possible that an obscure fault on one board, may cause a latter card to
appear faulty due to the nature of a ‘bus’ communications system.

On power-up, the self test facility...
Checks the integrity of the main processor board
RAM FAULT
PRG PROM FAULT
XTL FAULT
DPR R/W FAULT
All the above faults point to problems internally on the main processor card.
Checks communications with the secondary / phase bus processor
P/Bus CPU....
If the processor cannot be detected, then the self test will wait indefinitely at
this point with the red system error LED flashing. Check that the processor
and its firmware are fitted.
Examines the lamp switch cards to see how many are fitted
No L/S Cards Found
No cards were detected, check the ribbon cable.
Bad L/S Cards Found
e.g. if the first and third cards are detected, but not the second.
Waits for ZXO synchronization and checks the mains frequency
ZXO Sync’d...
If the phase bus processor cannot synchronize to the mains zero cross-over
signal, e.g. because the ZXO wires are not connected to the back of the first
lamp switch card, then self test will wait indefinitely at this point with the red
system error LED flashing.
Mains Freq Error
If the mains frequency is more than 5% out from either 50Hz or 60Hz.
Checks all the ADC test voltages on all of the lamp switch cards
ADC Tests....Failed
ADC Test Readings
0.0V 2.5V 5.0V

B0- nnnn nnnn nnnn
... .... .... ....
If the test fails, then the readings from each board, taken at both the positive
and negative mains peaks for each of the three test voltages (0V, 2.5V and
5V) are displayed on the handset.
Ideally the values should be 0, 512 and 1024, so try replacing any cards with
readings which are very different. If all the readings appear too high or too
low, particularly the 2.5V readings, then this may point to a problem with the
5v logic supply.

ST800 Guidance Notes
Checks that the lamp supply and voltage monitors are detecting no mains
L/Supply Off=240V
L/Supply Stuck On
If a lamp supply is being detected, then this implies that the lamp supply
relays are all switched on (very unlikely) or the lamp supply monitoring
transformer (in the power distribution unit) or its connection to the first lamp
switch card is incorrect.
V/Mons Off...Failed
R-00000000+00000400
A-00000000+00000000
G-00000400+00000000
If any of the voltage monitors appear to be detecting mains, even though the
lamp supply and all the triacs are switched off, then this implies a problem
with the hardware on one or more of the lamp switch cards.
Initializes the phase bus processor
P/Bus Init...
LS/Card Fault (Lat)
Bad L/S Cards
Once initialized, the phase bus processor performs more thorough checks on
the lamp switch cards and may detect faults. These tests check the data lines
and board select lines using test latches on each card ‘(Lat)’, the address
lines to each card ‘(Adr)’ and the ADC test voltages ‘(ADC)’. If more than one
test fails, then ‘Bad L/S Cards’ is displayed instead.
Checks the monitor validation signal
M/V Test.....Failed
Mon Val Failed
The monitor validation signal is generated by the main processor and travels
down the phase bus cables to each of the lamp switch cards, so a failure is
probably due to a faulty lamp switch card.
At this point, the self test has successfully checked-out the logic side of all the lamp
switch cards that it has found. It then displays a scrolling diagonal line on the amber
LED’s on these lamp switch cards to prove that it can address all the boards
correctly and to show that the first part of the self-test is complete.
This pattern remains until the operator presses the level 3 button to confirm that the
pattern is scrolling correctly on all the cards fitted and that the self test may switch
on the lamp supply and continue its tests.
Caution
It is essential that the correct number of lamp switch
cards have been detected at this point as following this,
the self test will start applying mains to the signals
Issue 1
667/HB/27000/100
Page 7
ST800 Guidance Notes
After the level 3 button is pressed, self test switches on the lamp supply.
Towards the end of this second sequence of tests, it tests all the triacs by switching
each one on in turn for a very short period of time.
If standard HI 12V halogen lamps are used (with a transformers in the signal heads),
then this pulse will not be seen on the street and so the signals need not be
covered. However it may be possible to see the pulse on lamps that are not driven
by any transformer, i.e. that run directly off the 240V.
If in doubt, all non-HI signal heads, i.e. 240V lamps,
should be covered before proceeding any further with the
self test.
Self test switches on the lamp supply and then...
checks that the voltage monitors still show no mains (triacs still switched off)
V/Mons Off...Failed
R-00000000+00000400
A-00000000+00000000
G-00000400+00000000
If any of the voltage monitors appear to be detecting mains, then it would
imply that those triacs are not holding off the mains and those lamp switch
cards should be replaced.
Checks that it can detect a lamp supply
L/S Monitor Reversed
The wires from the lamp supply monitor transformer in the power distribution
unit to the first lamp switch card (LSupp) are connected the wrong way round.
ZXO Wires Reversed
The ZXO wires from the power distribution unit to the first lamp switch card
are connected the wrong way round.
L/S Monitor Fault
The lamp supply can be detected on the voltage monitors, but no signal is
present from the lamp supply monitoring transformer. Check the transformer
and its connections.
L/Supply Failure
No lamp supply has be detected by the lamp supply monitoring transformer
but further investigations by the self test facility cannot determine the cause.
Check the lamp supply circuits relays, fuses, etc., in and around the power
distribution unit.
Page 8
667/HB/27000/100
Issue 1
ST800 Guidance Notes
Checks that each lamp supply relay can switch off the lamp supply independantly
SSR Fault
Relay A Fault
Relay B Fault
Failure of any of these tests implies that the relay is not switching off, i.e. that
it is either welded closed or the control signals from the main processor card
are stuck active.
Checks that the dimming relay is functioning
Dimming Fault
A fault is only logged on the dimming relay if the dim lamp supply is more
than 75% of the normal lamp supply, i.e. that the dimming relay seems to
have no effect on the lamp supply. If dimming is not required, then no link
should be fitted between the dim input and the dim output on the back of the
distribution unit. If dimming is configured as not present, i.e. KDP is set to
zero, then the controller will simply never attempt to switch to dim.
Note that this test does not fail if there is no dim lamp supply, e.g. if no
dimming transformer is fitted, since self test may be performed on the just the
controller rack. Therefore, the dim voltage should be checked manually, e.g.
Dim L/Supply=160V
Checks all of the triacs in turn by applying a very short pulse to each phase’s colour
A/Red:Extra Sigs On
R-00000001+00000001
A-00000001+00000001
G-00000001+00000001
A fault will be logged if extra signals are detected as on when one particular
aspect is pulsed. This would normally imply a short-circuit in the street cabling
or a open neutral connection.
No Voltages On...
R-00000F00+00000F00
A-00000F00+00000F00
G-00000F00+00000F00
A fault will also be logged if no voltages were detected, e.g. when one of the
fuses on one of the lamp switch cards has blown.
At the end of the test, the self test switches off the lamp supply and displays a
multicoloured scrolling pattern on the lamp switch card LED's to show that all the
tests have passed successfully.
It also illuminates a series of amber LED's to identify which cards on the extended
system bus have been detected. A full list is displayed on the handset.
After a few seconds, self test will repeat the tests on these last two pages allowing
the controller to be soak tested.

ST800 Guidance Notes
Handset Introduction
Unlike the T400, no prompt is automatically displayed when the handset is first
connected to the controller.
The ST800 handset communications can work at either 1200, 9600 or 19200 baud
and therefore the controller waits for the operator to press ‘BackSpace’ (or ‘Delete’)
a few times so that it can determine what baud rate is being used.
Note that on the old-style 14 character Oyster handset, the first press of the ‘BS’ key
tells the Oyster to transmit and receive at 1200 baud. All key presses are ignored
until this key is pressed, making it appear like either the handset or the controller is
not responding.
Also note the ST800 defaults to producing 20 character wide displays on the
assumption that a newer 20 character by 4 line handset is being used, rather than
the older single line, 14 character handsets. This extra room allows the controller to
display more information within each handset command.
To reduce the display width back to 14 characters, simply enter ‘WID=14↵’.
The same command can be used to increase the display width, e.g. enter
‘WID=80↵’ when a PC / IPT is being used as a handset.
Setting the Date and Time
Entering ‘TOD’ now displays the date as well as the time.
If the display width has been reduced to 14 characters, then only the time is initially
displayed, and the ‘+’ key must be used to display the date and the day of week.
To set the time or date, simply press ‘=’ and enter time (or date) directly, there is no
need to use the T400 commands STM and CKL.
Note that the following keystrokes will still work on a 14 character terminal since the
date, time or day of week can all be changed while displaying any part of the time.
For example:Keystrokes

ST800 Guidance Notes
Fault Log
The ST800 uses the same fault log commands as on the T400. Therefore to display
the currently active fault flags, enter ‘FFS↵’ (fast fault scan), and for the fault data,
enter ‘FDS↵’ (fast data scan). The ‘+’ and ‘-’ keys can then be used to scroll through
the active faults.
For backwards compatibility, the ‘FLF’ (fault log flags) and ‘FLD’ (fault log data)
handset commands still exist.
The ST800 also contains a timestamped historic rolling log which can be viewed
using the command ‘LOG↵’. When ‘LOG↵’ is first entered, the most recent entry is
displayed. To move through the historic log, use the ‘+’ and ‘-’ keys as normal.
A timestamped entry is added to the log when:• the controller is initialised, i.e. on first time power-up or after a config. change,
• the power is switched off and back on, and whether a self test was performed,
• when any FLF/FLD fault is set or is cleared,
• when the lamp monitor is reset,
• when any lamp fails or is replaced,
• when any detector input fails DFM, when it next changes state, and when the
fault is eventually cleared,
Note that this rolling log is not cleared when the configuration PROM is changed.
The controller remembers your last position in the log, so if you type ‘LOG’ again
after another command is used, it will return you to your last position in the log.
To return to the end of the log, press <SPACE>. If the ‘+’ key is then used, then the
most recent entries are displayed as before, but if the ‘-’ key is used, then the log
can be viewed in the reverse direction, starting with the oldest entry still present in
the rolling log.
However, if the power is switched off and back on, or the handset is disconnected,
then the first time that ‘LOG↵’ is entered, the most recent entry is always displayed.
The table on the following pages summarizes the ST800 fault log.
The ‘FLF’ column identifies the fault log flag number and the ‘FLD’ column identifies
the associated fault log data byte(s).
The ‘ABBR’ column shows the abbreviation that appears along side the fault report
in the commands ‘FFS’ and ‘LOG’.

Description
Relay Tests Failed:
The relay tests try to detect short-circuits while the controller
is operating normally with the lamp supply on. By closing all
but the relay under test, the lamp supply should not be
present unless that relay is short circuit. Note that if any
relay is stuck open circuit, then the lamp supply fault (FLF17)
will detect no lamp supply.
The fault log data will indicate the detected fault:
FLD 1:00000001 - Relay A appears to be short circuit
FLD 1:00000010 - Relay B appears to be short circuit
FLD 1:00000100 - SSR appears to be stuck short circuit
Note that the test on the SSR may fail if there are no lamps
connected to the controller.
Green Conflict Detected:
This fault indicates that the main processor detected a green
conflict in the lamp states it requested. The first 4 bytes

No Dim/Bright Changes
No dim/bright changes were detected in a 24 hour period
although dimming is configured, see KDP. If either FLF 38 or
FLF 39 is set, then the controller will be forced into the bright
state.
Too Many Dim/Bright Changes
The number of dim/bright changes detected in a 24 hour
period exceeds the configured limit, see KDL. If either FLF
38 or FLF 39 is set, then the controller will be forced into the

ST800 Guidance Notes
Lamp Monitoring
Lamp monitoring is now performed internally by the controller’s main processor, no
other cards are required and very little, if any external wiring is required.
The lamp monitor is automatically configured from the configuration PROM and will
be ready to learn the lamps of the junction.
Should the lamp monitor need resetting explicitly, then ‘KLR=1↵’ should be entered.
Before leaving a controller, the lamp monitor should be checked to ensure that it has
learnt the junction, i.e. that it has been given time to confirm exactly how much
current flows for each phase and colour.
This can be achieved by entering ‘KML↵’. This command automatically cycles
through all the phases and colours which the lamp monitor has not yet learnt,
resulting in displays of the following format:KML:LMU Disabled
Lamp monitoring has not been enabled in the configuration.
KML:A/Red 0%
Phase A red is 0% learnt, i.e. the lamp monitor has not
seen phase A red illuminated.
KML:A/Green 50%
Phase A green is 50% learnt, i.e. the lamp monitor has
learnt in the current in either dim or bright but learning is not
complete until the lamp monitor has learnt the current in
both states.
KML:A/Amber 25%
Phase A amber is 25% learnt, i.e. the lamp monitor has
started to learn the current but the colour has not yet been
illuminated for long enough.
KML:Awaiting D/B
The lamp monitor has finished learning all the currents in
the present dim or bright state and is waiting for a change to
the other state in order to complete the learning process.
KML:A/Red 100%
The lamp monitor has completely learnt phase A red.
KML:S33/A1 0%
The external optional sensor number 33, aspect pattern 1
has not yet been learnt. Most configurations will be
defaulted to provide two spare sensors which can be used
to monitor regulatory signs. If no signs are fitted, then the
lamp monitor will happily learn zero current when the
signals are bright after a short delay.
KML:Complete
Learning is complete, i.e. the lamp monitor has successfully
learnt all of the currents of the junction.

Issue 1
ST800 Guidance Notes
When learning is complete, the learnt load for each sensor and aspect, i.e. each
phase and colour, can be displayed using ‘KEL↵’.
For example, if there are three signal heads connected to phase A, each fitted with
50W halogen lamps, then entering KEL would display the following assuming 5W for
the transformers in the signal heads:
Keystrokes
KEL↵
+
+

KEL 2
etc...
0:167W
1:164W
2:165W
0:166W
A/Red
A/Green
A/Amber
B/Red
The format of the command is as follows, KEL s a:nnnW p/ccccc, where:
‘s’ = sensors 1 to 32 monitor A to F2, sensors 33 to 48 are external
‘a’ = aspect (or colour) pattern identifier
‘nnn’ = the load that has been learnt, i.e. the watts normalized to 240V
‘p/ccccc’ = phase and colour associated with this sensor and aspect pattern
When a lamp fault is detected, the fault log flag FLF 55 is set and more information
can be displayed using ‘KLD↵’. For example if one of the 50W green lamps on
phase A failed, then the following would be displayed:
Keystrokes Display
KLD 1 0:52W A/Green
KLD↵
KLD END OF LOG
+
After the lamp has been replaced, the lamp monitor will automatically clear the fault
once it has been given time to confirm the replacement. Note that the default confirm
time is 10 seconds.
If ‘KLD’ indicates that a lamp has failed, but all the lamps appear to be working
correctly, check that ‘KEL’ for the same sensor and aspect numbers displays a learnt
load which matches the number of lamps connected.
To clear any such lamp faults, view the KLD lamp fault entry as normal and simply
type ‘=0↵’ to change the ‘failed’ wattage back to zero. Note that this operation
requires level 3 access. Also note that this cannot be used for failures on vehicle red
lamps used for red lamp monitoring, any such attempt will result in the error ‘*W’.
Alternatively, the lamp monitor can be reset and all the lamp loads relearnt by
entering ‘KLR=1’.
