PanelView Plus 6 terminals are operator interface devices that run HMI machinelevel applications in an industrial environment. They are used to monitor,
control, or display information graphically, allowing operators to quickly
understand the status of their application.
This platform is programmed using common development software providing
multi-language support, and integrates into systems with Rockwell Automation
controllers including the preferred Logix controllers.
Modular components are usable across the entire PanelView Plus 6 platform:
• Display modules range in size from 6.5 to 15-inches with either key, touch,
or combination key/touch input
• Windows CE logic module runs an open or closed desktop environment
and offers optional, extended features and file viewers
• Optional communication modules for network communication

Open Versus Closed System
All PanelView Plus 6 terminals can be configured to run an open or closed
desktop environment:
• An open system launches the Windows Explorer shell on startup and
appears with the Windows CE desktop and control panel. The system is
configurable via the control panel and supports Windows operations.
• A closed system launches a FactoryTalk View Machine Edition application
on startup and does not allow access to the Windows CE desktop.
All terminals are initially shipped as closed systems restricting access to the
desktop. The first time you start the system, the terminal launches FactoryTalk
View ME Station Configuration mode. At this point, you can change the start-up
option and allow desktop access.

Rockwell Automation Publication 2711P-UM006A-EN-P - November 2010
Overview
Startup Options
Chapter 1
You can configure your terminal to perform one of three actions at startup:
• Launch a FactoryTalk View Machine Edition HMI application
• Launch the FactoryTalk View Machine Edition Configuration mode of
the terminal where you load and run applications, configure startup
options and terminal settings, and enable or disable desktop access.
• Launch the Windows Explorer desktop shell. The system is configurable
via the control panel and supports Windows operations.
The factory default state and the startup option following a firmware upgrade is
to launch the FactoryTalk View ME Station Configuration mode of the terminal.
Refer to Startup Options on page 47 for information on how to change the
startup option.
Desktop Access
Any of the terminals can be configured to allow or restrict desktop access. From
the desktop, you can perform system and control panel operations, or run thirdparty applications. Terminals with optional, extended features can additionally
run viewers, media players, and launch the web browser. You can even allow access
temporarily to perform specific tasks, then disable desktop access to prevent
unauthorized changes.
TIP
All terminals are initially shipped with desktop access disabled.
Refer to Desktop Access on page 50 for details on how to modify desktop access.
IMPORTANT
Software Support
Allowing desktop access does not change the feature set of your
terminal. For example, If you have a PanelView Plus 6 terminal without
extended features, opening the desktop will not give you access to them.
All PanelView Plus 6 terminals support the same HMI software.

Overview
Display Modules
All 700 to 1500 display modules have TFT color, graphic displays with either
keypad, touch screen, or combination keypad/touch-screen input. Common
features and firmware provide for easy migration to a larger display:
• Eight-wire resistive touch screens are extremely accurate for operator
interfaces. When a point on the touch screen is pressed, the layers connect
and change the electrical current, which is then registered and processed.
• All keypad or combination keypad/touch-screen displays are similar except
for the number of functions keys.
To meet the requirements of specific environmental conditions, high-bright
displays, marine-certified displays, and conformal-coated displays are also
available. Plus, you can order field replaceable bezels.

When using a high-bright display module outdoors, catalog number
2711P-RDT12H, there are important considerations in maximizing the field-life
of the front bezel and display:
• Using an antiglare overlay and visor
• Selecting the proper enclosure
• Using the proper orientation of the terminal
Ultraviolet and infrared radiation can reduce the field life of any electronic
device. While the materials used in the terminal bezels provide long field life, that
field life can be extended by proper installation.
IMPORTANT
26
The high-bright display module is compatible only with DC-powered
logic modules, catalog numbers 2711P-RP8D, 2711P-RP8DK,
2711P-RP9D, 2711P-RP9DK. It cannot be used with AC-powered logic
modules.
Rockwell Automation Publication 2711P-UM006A-EN-P - November 2010
Install Terminal
Chapter 2
Using an Antiglare Overlay
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun causes all plastics to fade or yellow, and
become brittle over time. Using an antiglare overlay, catalog number
2711P-RGT12, will protect the front of the terminal from direct exposure to UV
radiation and increase its field life.
Using a Solar Visor
If the high-bright display module will be in direct sunlight during the hottest part
of the day and the external ambient temperature exceeds 40 °C (104 °F), use the
visor kit, catalog number 2711P-RVT12. The visor reduces the solar load on the
front of the display and helps to maintain temperatures within specification.
The high-bright display module has a built-in temperature sensor that
automatically reduces the backlight intensity if the temperature inside the cabinet
exceeds 55 °C (131 °F). This reduces the risk of damage to the display.
Selecting an Enclosure
The paint, color, size, and power dissipated by the internal components of an
enclosure affect the temperature rise inside the cabinet. Hoffman, a Rockwell
Automation Encompass Partner, has information to help you select an enclosure,
and heating/cooling accessories to meet the temperature requirements of the
installed equipment. See http://www.hoffmanonline.com.
Stirring fans or active cooling may be required in high altitude and high ambient
temperature locations to keep the internal enclosure temperature below
55 °C (131 °F). Use a heater in installations where the ambient temperature is
below 0 °C (32 °F).
Backlight Considerations
The backlight of the high-bright display generates a significant amount of heat
when set to full intensity. To minimize the amount of heat generated and extend
the life of the backlight, decrease the display intensity by using the screen saver
with a 5…10 minute delay.
Orientation of the Terminal
If outside, avoid placing the terminal on the south (north in the southern
hemisphere) or west side of cabinet, if possible. This will reduce the heat rise due
to solar loading during the hottest part of the day.
Mount the terminal vertically to minimize the solar loading on the display. Do
not mount the terminal in a sloped enclosure if it will be exposed to direct
sunlight.

Required Tools
These tools are required for panel installation:
• Panel cutout tools
• Small, slotted screwdriver
• Torque wrench for tightening the terminal mounting clips
Clearances
Allow adequate spacing around the terminal, inside the enclosure, for adequate
ventilation. Consider heat produced by other devices in the enclosure. The
ambient temperature around the terminals must be between
0…55 °C (32…131 °F).
These minimum clearances are required for ventilation:
• Top clearance: 51 mm (2 in.)
• Bottom clearance: 102 mm (4 in.)
• Side clearances: 25 mm (1 in.)
• Back clearance: 25 mm (1 in.)
Minimum side clearance for inserting an SD card is 102 mm (4 in.).

Use publication NFPA 70E, Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee
Workplaces, IEC 60364 Electrical Installations in Buildings, or other applicable
wiring safety requirements for the country of installation when wiring the
devices. In addition to the NFPA guidelines, here are some other guidelines to
follow:
• Connect the device and other similar electronic equipment to its own
branch circuit.
• Protect the input power by a fuse or circuit breaker rated at no more than
15 A.
• Route incoming power to the device by a separate path from the
communication lines.
• Cross power and communication lines at right angles if they must cross.
Communication lines can be installed in the same conduit as low-level
DC I/O lines (less than 10V).
• Shield and ground cables appropriately to avoid electromagnetic
interference (EMI).
Grounding minimizes noise from EMI and is a safety measure in electrical
installations.
For more information on grounding recommendations, refer to the National
Electrical Code published by the National Fire Protection Association.

For the terminal display, you can adjust its intensity, view its temperature,
configure the screen saver, or enable/disable the screen cursor.
Adjust the Display Intensity
You can modify the intensity of the terminal backlight. You can use the default
intensity of 100% or you can change the intensity for runtime operations.
1. Select Terminal Settings>Display>Display Intensity.
2. Press the Startup Intensity button to switch between the Default intensity
and the Runtime intensity.
• If you choose Runtime, the startup screens use the runtime intensity.
• If you choose Default, the startup screens use the default setting, 100%
3. Increase or decrease the intensity for runtime operations, by pressing the
up or down arrow keys.
4. Press OK when done to save the intensity changes.
View the Display Temperature
To view the current temperature of the display, select Terminal
Settings>Display>Display Temperature.
The terminals have a cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlight. This
backlight requires temperature control when the internal temperature of the
product is below 10 °C (50 °F) or above 60 °C (140 °F). The terminal monitors
low and high temperature conditions. If the internal temperature is the following:
• Below 10 °C (50 °F), the backlight is set to overdrive or the full-rated
current setting for at least five minutes.
• Above 60 °C (50 °F), the backlight is set to underdrive; 40% or less of full
brightness. This reduces heat generation from the backlight.
Temperature monitoring begins when the backlight turns on at startup or when
the screen saver is deactivated. The temperature control affects only display
intensity; it does not restrict the use or operation of the terminal.
When a low or high temperature condition is detected, an error is sent to the
system event log. If the temperature control is not functioning, a noncritical error
is sent to the system event log but the terminal continues to operate normally.
TIP
The CCFL backlight temperature control takes precedence over the
application backlight settings.

wiring safety requirements for the country of installation when wiring the
devices. In addition to the NFPA, these are other guidelines to follow:
• Route communication cables to terminal by a separate path from incoming
power.
IMPORTANT
Do not run signal wiring and power wiring in the same conduit.
• Cross power and communication lines at right angles if they must cross.
• Communication lines can be installed in the same conduit as low-level DC
I/O lines (less than 10V).
• Shield and ground cables appropriately to avoid electromagnetic
interference (EMI).
Grounding minimizes noise from EMI and is a safety measure in electrical
installations.

Ethernet Cable
Use Belden 7921A shielded CAT5E cable according to TIA 568-B.1 and RJ45
connector according to IEC 60603-7 for compliance with Marine emission limits
and the European Union 89/336/EEC EMC Directive.
The maximum length of the Ethernet cable between the logic module’s Ethernet
port and a 10/100 Base-T port on an Ethernet hub (without repeaters or fiber) is
100 m (328 ft).
WARNING: Do not connect or disconnect any communication cable with
power applied to this device or any device on the network. An electrical
arc could cause an explosion in hazardous location installations. Be sure
that power is removed or the area is nonhazardous before proceeding.
Security Considerations
IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) is used for IPv4 multicast. A
multicast is communication between a single sender and multiple receivers on a
network. IGMP is used to exchange membership status data between IPv4
routers that support multicasting and members of multicast groups. A router is an
intermediary device on a communication network that expedites message
delivery by finding the most efficient route for a message packet within a
network, or by routing packets from one subnetwork to another. A sub-network
is a separate part of an organization’s network identified through IP addressing.
PanelView Plus terminals provide level 2 (full) support for IPv4 multicasting
(IGMP version 2) as described in RFC 1112 and RFC 2236.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used for internal network
management and is not supported.
Ports 137 and 138 are normally open to support the NetBIOS protocol used by
Windows CE.NET similar to other Microsoft and IBM network operating
systems.

DH+ Network Connections
Use a Belden 9463 twin-axial or equivalent cable, catalog number 1770-CD, to
connect a terminal to a DH+ link.
You can connect a DH+ link in two ways:
• Trunk line/drop line - from the drop line to the connector screw
terminals on the DH+ connectors of the processor.
• Daisy chain - to the connector screw terminals on the DH+ connectors
on the processor.
Follow these guidelines when installing DH+ communication links:
• Do not exceed these cable lengths:
– Trunk line-cable length: 3,048 m (10,000 ft)
– Drop-cable length: 30.4 m (100 ft)
The maximum cable length is determined by the baud rate.
• Do not connect more than 64 stations on a single DH+ link.

Download Firmware Files
Before upgrading your terminal firmware, you need to download the appropriate
firmware installation package, for example, PVP700-1500_60000.exe, from the
Rockwell Automation customer website. This installation package contains:
• Firmware Upgrade Package (FUP) contains an autorun executable and the
new firmware files.
• Firmware Upgrade Wizard (FUW), version 6.0 , is used to upgrade the
terminal firmware using the contents of the FUP.
Both the FUP and FUW are copied to a specified location on your computer
during the download.
Follow these steps to download firmware installation files to your computer.
1. Go to http://www.rockwellautomation.com/support and select Firmware
Updates under Downloads.
2. Select the ‘FactoryTalk View ME* (formerly RSView ME)’ link.
3. Locate the new FUP.
TIP
The FUP name is ME_PVP6xX_06.00.000.fup, where 06.00.000 refers to
the ME version and will change with each release. The 6000 in the
installation package name, PVP700-1500_60000.exe, represents the ME
version.
4. Download the upgrade file (.exe) to a temporary folder on the same drive
as the FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME).
5. Run the upgrade file (.exe) installation procedure.
• The FUW is installed in the FactoryTalk View ME folder.
• The firmware upgrade package (.fup) file is installed into the folder
specified during the installation procedure.
You are now ready to run the FUW to upgrade terminal firmware from a USB
flash drive or SD card or by using a network connection.
Firmware Upgrade Wizard
The Firmware Upgrade Wizard (FUW) is used to upgrade the terminal
firmware. Two methods are provided for upgrading the firmware:
• Create a firmware upgrade card with the contents of the FUP file that you
can then load in the terminal to upgrade the firmware.
The firmware upgrade card can be a USB flash drive or an SD card, catalog
number 1784-SDx.
• Upgrade firmware in a terminal connected to a computer over a direct
network connection. The network connection requires a computer
running RSLinx Enterprise software, version 5.0 or later. In the RSLinx
Enterprise software, you select the terminal you want to upgrade.
You can run the FUW from within FactoryTalk View Studio software or from
the Programs menu on your computer:

Isolate the Anomaly
This section provides general troubleshooting information to assist you when
trying to isolate anomalies.
Check for Adequate Power
A terminal that does not receive adequate power could result in unpredictable
behavior. Refer to Appendix A, Specifications, for power requirements.
Check Indicators at Startup
When the terminal starts, the fault and comm indicators flash on and off, then
the comm indicator flashes to signal progress during startup. When startup is
complete, the comm indicator remains on, and is controlled by the
communication driver or application. The comm indicator typically flashes when
communication is active.
If the indicators remain off, the power supply or logic module has failed. Check
the power cable:
• If the power is not within range, replace the power supply.
• If the power is within range, replace the logic module.

Ethernet Connection
This table provides tips on how to isolate Ethernet anomalies.
Table 66 - Resolve Ethernet Anomalies
Action
Description
Check the status indicators at the Ethernet connection
• Green indicates a communication link and should be on.
• Amber indicates data activity and should be flashing.
• Verify that there is a connection to the Ethernet hub/switch.
Check cable connections and quality of cable
Check for:
• Cable crimping
• Ethernet hub/switch connection
• Uplink ports
Check the IP Address of the Built-in Ethernet Controller
• From FactoryTalk View ME Station, select Terminal Settings>Networks and
Communications>Network Connections>Network Adapters.
• From the desktop control panel, open the Network and Dial-up Connections control panel
applet.
If DHCP is enabled, the device expects a valid IP address to be acquired within a several
seconds after startup. The TCP/IP protocol automatically assigns 169.254.nnn.nnn when it
fails to acquire an IP address from the server. In general, an IP address that begins with 169
will not support a network connection.
A bad Ethernet connection and the absence of a valid IP address are typically reported in a
Communication error message box with the Winsock critical error 10065 - No route to host.
Check for conflicting IP addresses
If DHCP is not enabled, make sure the IP address you specify is not in conflict with the
address of another device on the network.
Check the device name of the terminal
Do not allow devices on the network with same host name.
• In FactoryTalk View ME Station, select Terminal Settings>Communications and
Networks>Network Connections>Device Name.
• From the desktop control panel, open the System applet and select the Device Name tab.
Contact your Network Administrator to check peer or
server settings
The other side of the Ethernet connection may be an issue.
Check the requirements of network applications
Network applications may have specific requirements such as Proxy Settings for Internet
Explorer and Ethernet Configuration for ActiveSync.
Check multi-homed devices
Multi-homed devices, more than one Ethernet node, can cause confusion and ambiguity.
Keep the network connections as simple as possible.
From the desktop, use the network tools Ping.exe and
Ipconfig.exe to diagnose issues with IP addresses and host
devices.
These network utilities are diagnostic tools.
• Ping is an Internet utility used to determine whether a particular IP address is reachable
online by sending out a packet and waiting for a response. Ping is used to test and debug
a network as well as see if a user or server is online.
• IPconfig is a Windows command line utility that manages the IP address assigned to the
machine it is running in. It displays the computer's currently assigned IP, subnet mask and
default gateway addresses.

Troubleshoot the System
Application Does Not Run
Chapter 9
If a terminal application does not run, there may be an issue with the FactoryTalk
View Machine Edition (ME) application. Verify that a startup screen was
configured and that the runtime file is a compatible version.
If the terminal application does not run at startup, try to run the application
manually. If the application runs manually, then the operating system may be
starting up with an invalid shortcut path. Check the shortcuts in the Windows
startup folder.
\Windows\StartUp
Check the syntax of each shortcut path in the Startup folder and verify that a
valid target application exists.
Check that the application is not missing components or required DLLs. Remove
and reload the application.
Configuration Mode Access
To access Configuration mode while an application is running, your FactoryTalk
View ME application must contain a screen with a Goto Configure Mode
button. When the application is running, you can press this button to access
Configuration mode.
If a running application does not contain a Goto Configure Mode button, you
can access Configuration mode during startup by entering Safe Mode from the
general Maintenance screens. Refer to page 151 for details.
TIP
File System Errors
If the terminal is configured to enter Configuration mode at startup and
does not, then reload the firmware.
File system errors are rare and can usually be corrected. The internal file system is
transaction-safe and is significantly more reliable than the FAT file system that
supports the external, removable, USB and SD storage devices. Always stop
applications before removing power so that data is cleanly flushed out to the file
system and the file system is brought to an orderly stop.
Do not remove the external USB or SD storage devices while writing to the
device is underway. Although the FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME)
application runs from RAM, functions such as data logging, event logging, and
historical trending, write to flash memory and should be stopped before
removing power.

Troubleshoot the System
Advanced Diagnostics
Ping and ipconfig are valuable tools for network debugging along with some
knowledge of IP and the Winsock error codes:
• Try to ping the destination host.
• Check the destination address.
• Check whether you have a router configured in your network system (your
WinSock implementation).
• Use the tracert command at the command prompt on the desktop to try
and determine where the failure occurs along the route between your host
and the destination host.
• Some utility programs can be developed using the software development
kit (SDK).
• Take advantage of alternate connectivity - mouse versus touch screen,
keyboard versus keypad, serial communication, and alternate Ethernet
connections.
• Examine the folder \Windows\DumpFiles for crash logs when suspecting
an application or operating system crash.
•
•
•
•
150
The crash dump file is viewable offline, on a workstation, using common
Windows development or debugging tools, for example, Visual Studio or
WinDBG. At a minimum, the information in the crash dump file will
reveal the date and time of the exception, the exception type, the name of
the offending process and the register state, including the program counter.
Store Autorun.exe utilities on an SD card that can be easily run by inserting
the card in the SD card slot of the terminal.
Know useful keyboard shortcuts so that you can navigate around the
system without a mouse or touch screen.
Check the system event log in the Hardware Monitor control panel
application or under Terminal Settings>System Event Log in FactoryTalk
View ME Station. Look for error conditions or reasons that might cause
unexpected behaviors or restarts.
Check the configuration settings in the desktop control panel applications
or in FactoryTalk View ME Station.

anomaly. In Safe mode, you can repair offending applications or
changes that caused the anomaly.
Important: FactoryTalk View ME Station will not run the HMI .mer
application on startup if one is loaded, but will instead enter
Configuration mode. The HMI application will run the next time the
system is reset.
Restore factory defaults
Restores all storage media on the terminal to its initial factory default
state, including firmware, registry, file system, and configuration data.
Typically, this option is used to recover from a failed firmware upgrade.
Important: All storage media is returned to its original state when
purchased. All user-installed, firmware updates are removed.
Restores all user-accessible storage and configuration data on the
terminal to its default state. The current firmware version is retained.
Reset terminal
Display resolution
Important: All storage media is returned to its original state when
purchased except for the firmware. The latest FactoryTalk View ME
image is retained. All user data changes or additions are lost.
Sets the startup, display resolution. If the system can’t detect the
resolution, you can choose the appropriate resolution by terminal
model.
• Auto - auto detects the display resolution.
• VGA - sets the resolution to 640x480x16 for the 700 and 1000
terminals.
• SVGA - sets the resolution to 800 x 600 x 16 for the 1250 terminals.
• XVGA - sets the resolution to 1024 x 768 x 16 for the 1500 terminal.
Perform the maintenance operations in this order to diagnose and repair
operating problems with your terminal.
1. Safe mode - stops an application from starting automatically.
2. Reset terminal - removes user-installed applications, user-configuration
changes, and user-accessible data.
3. Restore factory defaults - returns the terminal to its original,
out-of-box state.
