Hardware System Maintenance
1
Standard Maintenance
No regular or preventative maintenance is required for this product (there are no internal
2
batteries); however, a routine maintenance check (about every one or two months) of your
PLC and control system is good practice, and should include the following items:
3
• Air Temperature – Check the air temperature in the control cabinet, so the operating temperature
range of any component is not exceeded.
4
• Air Filter – If the control cabinet has an air filter, clean or replace it periodically as required.
• Fuses or breakers – Verify that all fuses and breakers are intact.
5
• Cleaning the Unit – Check that all air vents are clear. If the exterior case needs cleaning, disconnect
the input power, and carefully wipe the case using a damp cloth. Do not let water enter the case
through the air vents and do not use strong detergents because this may discolor the case.

7 Diagnostics
Diagnostics
8
Your DL05 Micro PLC performs many pre-defined diagnostic routines with every CPU scan.
The diagnostics can detect various errors or failures in the PLC. The two primary error classes
are fatal and non-fatal.
9
Fatal Errors
0
Fatal errors are errors which may cause the system to function improperly, perhaps
introducing a safety problem. The CPU will automatically switch to Program Mode if it is in
Run Mode. (Remember, in Program Mode all outputs are turned off.) If the fatal error is
1
detected while the CPU is in Program Mode, the CPU will not allow you to transition to
Run Mode until the error has been corrected.
2
Some examples of fatal errors are:
• Power supply failure
3
• Parity error or CPU malfunction
• Particular programming errors
4
Non-fatal Errors
B
C
D
Non-fatal errors are errors that need your attention, but should not cause improper operation.
They do not cause or prevent any mode transitions of the CPU. The application program can
use special relay contacts to detect non-fatal errors, and even take the system to an orderly
shutdown or switch the CPU to Program Mode if desired. An example of a non-fatal error is:
• Particular programming errors The programming devices will notify you of an error if one occurs
while online.
• DirectSOFT 5 provides the error number and an error message.
• The handheld programmer displays error numbers and short descriptions of the error.
Appendix B has a complete list of error messages in order by error number. Many error
messages point to supplemental V-memory locations which contain related information.
Special relays (SP contacts) also provide error indications.

DL05 Micro PLC Error Codes
These errors can be generated by the CPU or by the Handheld Programmer, depending on
the actual error. Appendix B provides a more complete description of the error codes.
The errors can be detected at various times. However, most of them are detected at power-up,
on entry to Run Mode, or when a Handheld Programmer key sequence results in an error or
an illegal request.

1 CPU Indicators
The DL05 Micro PLCs have indicators on the front to help you determine potential
problems with the system. In normal runtime operation only, the RUN and PWR indicators
2
are on. The table below is a quick reference to potential problems.
3
Indicator Status Potential Problems

PWR Indicator
In general there are three reasons for the CPU power status LED (PWR) to be OFF:
9
1. Power to the unit is incorrect or is not applied.
2. PLC power supply is faulty.
0
3. Other component(s) have the power supply shut down.
If the voltage to the power supply is not correct, the PLC may not operate properly or may
1
not operate at all. Use the following guidelines to correct the problem.
WARNING: To minimize the risk of electrical shock, always disconnect the system power before
2
inspecting the physical wiring.
1. First, disconnect the external power.
3
2. Verify that all external circuit breakers or fuses are still intact.
3. Check all incoming wiring for loose connections. If you’re using a separate termination block,
4
check those connections for accuracy and integrity.

1. System voltage incorrect
2. PLC power supply faulty
1. CPU programming error
2. CPU in program mode

1. Electrical noise interference
2. Internal CPU defective
4. If the connections are acceptable, reconnect the system power and verify the voltage at the DL05
power input is within specification. If the voltage is not correct shut down the system and correct
the problem.
B
C
D
5. If all wiring is connected correctly and the incoming power is within the specifications, the PLC
internal supply may be faulty.
The best way to check for a faulty PLC is to substitute a known good one to see if this
corrects the problem. The removable connectors on the DL05 make this relatively easy. If
there has been a major power surge, it is possible the PLC internal power supply has been
damaged. If you suspect this is the cause of the power supply damage, consider installing an
AC line conditioner to attenuate damaging voltage spikes in the future.
NOTE: See Chapter 2 for suppressing the DL05 outputs.

Chapter 9: Maintenance and Troubleshooting
RUN Indicator
If the CPU will not enter the Run mode (the RUN indicator is off ), the problem is usually in
the application program, unless the CPU has a fatal error. If a fatal error has occurred, the
CPU LED should be on. You can use a programming device to determine the cause of the
error.
The RUN indicator is blinking: the PLC firmware needs to be upgraded.
Both of the programming devices, Handheld Programmer and DirectSOFT 5, will return an
error message describing the problem. Depending on the error, there may also be an AUX
function you can use to help diagnose the problem. The most common programming error is
“Missing END Statement”. All application programs require an END statement for proper
termination. A complete list of error codes can be found in Appendix B.
CPU Indicator
If the CPU indicator is on, a fatal error has occurred in the CPU. Generally, this is not a
programming problem but an actual hardware failure. You can power cycle the system to clear
the error. If the error clears, you should monitor the system and determine what caused the
problem. You will find this problem is sometimes caused by high frequency electrical noise
introduced into the CPU from an outside source. Check your system grounding and install
electrical noise filters if the grounding is suspected. If power cycling the system does not reset
the error, or if the problem returns, you should replace the CPU.
Communications Problems
If you cannot establish communications with the CPU, check for these problems:
• The cable is disconnected.
• The cable has a broken wire or has been wired incorrectly.
• The cable is improperly terminated or grounded.
• The device connected is not operating at the correct baud rate (9600 baud).
• The device connected to the port is sending data incorrectly.
• A grounding difference exists between the two devices.
• Electrical noise is causing intermittent errors.
• The PLC has a bad communication port and should be replaced.

Chapter 9: Maintenance and Troubleshooting
1 I/O Point Troubleshooting
Possible Causes
2
If you suspect an I/O error, there are several things that could be causing the problem.
• High-Speed I/O configuration error
3
• A blown fuse in your machine or panel (the DL05 does not have internal I/O fuses)
• A loose terminal block
4
• The auxiliary 24 VDC supply has failed
• The Input or Output Circuit has failed
5
Some Quick Steps
When troubleshooting the DL05 Micro PLCs there are a few facts you should be aware of.
6
These facts may assist you in quickly correcting an I/O problem.
• HSIO configuration errors are commonly mistaken for I/O point failure during program
7
development. If the I/O point in question is in X0–X2, or Y0–Y1, check all parameter locations
listed in Chapter 3 that apply to the HSIO mode you have selected.
• The output circuits cannot detect shorted or open output points. If you suspect one or more faulty
8
points, measure the voltage drop from the common to the suspect point. Remember when using a
Digital Volt Meter, leakage current from an output device such as a triac or a transistor must be
9
considered. A point which is off may appear to be on if no load is connected the point.
• The I/O point status indicators are logic-side indicators. This means the LED which indicates the
on or off status reflects the status of the point with respect to the CPU. On an output point the
0
status indicators could be operating normally while the actual output device (transistor, triac etc.)
could be damaged. With an input point, if the indicator LED is on the input circuitry is probably
1
operating properly. Verify the LED goes off when the input signal is removed.
• Leakage current can be a problem when connecting field devices to an I/O point. False input signals
can be generated when the leakage current of an output device is great enough to turn on the
2
connected input device. To correct this, install a resistor in parallel with the input or output of the
circuit. The value of this resistor will depend on the amount of leakage current and the voltage
3
applied but usually a 10K to 20K resistor will work. Verify the wattage rating of the resistor is
correct for your application.
• Because of the removable terminal blocks on the DL05, the easiest method to determine if an I/O
4
circuit has failed is to replace the unit if you have a spare. However, if you suspect a field device is
defective, that device may cause the same failure in the replacement PLC as well. As a point of
caution, you may want to check devices or power supplies connected to the failed I/O circuit before
replacing the unit with a spare.

Chapter 9: Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Output points can be set on or off in the DL05 series CPUs. If you want to do an I/O check
out independent of the application program, follow the procedure below:
Step
Action
1
2
3
Use a handheld programmer or DirectSOFT to communicate online to the PLC.
Change to Program Mode.
Go to address 0.
4
Insert an “END” statement at address 0. (This will cause program execution to occur only at address 0 and
prevent the application program from turning the I/O points on or off).
5
6
7
Change to Run Mode.
Use the programming device to set (turn) on or off the points you wish to test.
When you finish testing I/O points delete the “END” statement at address 0.
WARNING: Depending on your application, forcing I/O points may cause unpredictable machine
operation that can result in a risk of personal injury or equipment damage. Make sure you have
taken all appropriate safety precautions prior to testing any I/O points.

1 Noise Troubleshooting
Electrical Noise Problems
2
Noise is one of the most difficult problems to diagnose. Electrical noise can enter a system in
many different ways and they fall into one of two categories, conducted or radiated. It may be
3
difficult to determine how the noise is entering the system but the corrective actions for either
of the types of noise problems are similar.
• Conducted noise is when the electrical interference is introduced into the system by way of a
4
attached wire, panel connection ,etc. It may enter through an I/O circuit, a power supply
connection, the communication ground connection, or the chassis ground connection.
5
• Radiated noise is when the electrical interference is introduced into the system without a direct
electrical connection, much in the same manner as radio waves.
6
Reducing Electrical Noise
While electrical noise cannot be eliminated, it can be reduced to a level that will not affect the
7
system.
• Most noise problems result from improper grounding of the system. A good earth ground can be
the single most effective way to correct noise problems. If a ground is not available, install a ground
8
rod as close to the system as possible. Ensure all ground wires are single point grounds and are not
daisy chained from one device to another. Ground metal enclosures around the system. A loose wire
9
can act as a large antenna, introducing noise into the system. Therefore, tighten all connections in
your system. Loose ground wires are more susceptible to noise than the other wires in your system.
Review Chapter 2 Installation, Wiring, and Specifications if you have questions regarding how to
0
ground your system.
• Electrical noise can enter the system through the power source for the PLC and I/O circuits.
1
Installing an isolation transformer for all AC sources can correct this problem. DC sources should
be well-grounded good quality supplies.
•
Separate input wiring from output wiring. Never run low-voltage I/O wiring close to high voltage
2
wiring.

Machine Startup and Program Troubleshooting
The DL05 Micro PLCs provide several features that can help you debug your program before
and during machine startup. This section discusses the following topics which can be very
helpful.
• Program Syntax Check
• Duplicate Reference Check
• Special Instructions
• Run Time Edits
• Forcing I/O Points
Syntax Check
Even though the Handheld Programmer and DirectSOFT 5 provide error checking during
program entry, you may want to check a program that has been modified. Both programming
devices offer a way to check the program syntax. For example, you can use AUX 21, CHECK
PROGRAM to check the program syntax from a Handheld Programmer, or you can use the
PLC Diagnostics menu option within DirectSOFT 5. This check will find a wide variety of
programming errors. The following example shows how to use the syntax check with a
Handheld Programmer.

Special Instructions
There are several instructions that can be used to help you debug your program during
machine startup operations.
• END
• PAUSE
• STOP
END Instruction: If you need a way to quickly disable part of the program, just insert an
END statement prior to the portion that should be disabled. When the CPU encounters the
END statement, it assumes that is the end of the program. The following diagram shows an
example.

PAUSE Instruction: This instruction provides a quick way to allow the inputs (or other logic)
to operate while disabling selected outputs. The output image register is still updated, but the
output circuits are not. For example, you could make this conditional by adding an input
contact or CR to control the instruction with a switch or a programming device. Or, you
could just add the instruction without any conditions so the selected outputs would be
disabled at all times.

STOP Instruction: Sometimes during machine startup you need a way to quickly turn off all
the outputs and return to Program Mode. You can use the STOP instruction. When this
instruction is executed the CPU automatically exits Run Mode and enters Program Mode.
Remember, all outputs are turned off during Program Mode. The following diagram shows an
example of a condition that returns the CPU to Program Mode.

In the example shown above, you could trigger X7 which would execute the STOP
instruction. The CPU would enter Program Mode and all outputs would be turned off.
Duplicate Reference Check
You can also check for multiple uses of the same output coil. Both programming devices offer
a way to check for this condition.. For example, you can AUX 21, CHECK PROGRAM to
check for duplicate references from a Handheld Programmer, or you can use the PLC
Diagnostics menu option within DirectSOFT 5. The following example shows how to
perform the duplicate reference check with a Handheld Programmer.

until no duplicate references are found.
NOTE: You can use the same coil in more than one location, especially in programs containing Stage
instructions and/or OROUT instructions. The Duplicate Reference check will find occurrences, even
though they are acceptable.

Run Time Edits
The DL05 Micro PLC allows you to make changes to the application program during Run
Mode. These edits are not “bumpless.” Instead, CPU scan is momentarily interrupted (and
the outputs are maintained in their current state) until the program change is complete. This
means if the output is off, it will remain off until the program change is complete. If the
output is on, it will remain on.
WARNING: Only authorized personnel fully familiar with all aspects of the application should
make changes to the program. Changes during Run Mode become effective immediately. Make
sure you thoroughly consider the impact of any changes to minimize the risk of personal injury or
damage to equipment. There are some important operational changes during Run Time Edits.
1. If there is a syntax error in the new instruction, the CPU will not enter the Run Mode.
2. If you delete an output coil reference and the output was on at the time, the output will remain
on until it is forced off with a programming device.
3. Input point changes are not acknowledged during Run Time Edits, so, if you’re using a highspeed operation and a critical input comes on, the CPU may not see the change.
Not all instructions can be edited during a Run Time Edit session. The following list shows
the instructions that can be edited.

how this process works. In the example, we’ll
change X0 to C10. Note, the example assumes
you have already placed the CPU in Run Mode.

Forcing I/O Points
There are many times, especially during machine startup and troubleshooting, that you need
the capability to force an I/O point to be either on or off. Before you use a programming
device to force any data type it is important you understand how the DL05 CPUs process the
forcing requests.
WARNING: Only authorized personnel fully familiar with the application should make program
changes. Do thoroughly consider the impact of any changes to minimize the risk of personal
injury or damage to equipment.
Bit Forcing — Bit forcing temporarily changes the status of a discrete bit. For example, you
may want to force an input on even though the program has turned it off. This allows you to
change the point status stored in the image register. The forced value will be valid until the
CPU writes to the image register location during the next scan. This is useful you just need to
force a bit on to trigger another event.

The following diagrams show a brief example of how
you could use the D2–HPP Handheld Programmer to

force an I/O point. The example assumes you have
already placed the CPU into Run Mode.
