ATV Template Usage
When an Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller is being used on a local drive (a local drive is the drive
on which the Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller card is connected), the ATV template program is a
good help for the users less familiar with the Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller as well as a good
support for advanced users to optimize the programming of an Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller.
This template provides a program structure and the implementation of some functions such as the
MANDATORY_AT_EACH_CYCLE function, access to acyclic data, and keypad parameter saves, all
of which are necessary when programming an Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller.
It is a best practice to use the ATV template to start an Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller application.
Create a Project with the ATV Template
Use SoMachine Central to create a project with the ATV template.
Refer to New Project Assistant - Templates (see SoMachine Central, User Guide) for more
information.

Introduction
The Task Configuration node in the Applications tree allows you to define one or more tasks to
control the execution of your application program.
The task types available are:
Cyclic
 Freewheeling
 External event

This chapter begins with an explanation of these task types and provides information regarding the
maximum number of tasks, the default task configuration, and task prioritization. In addition, this
chapter introduces the system and task watchdog functions and explains its relationship to task
execution.

Maximum Number of Tasks
The maximum number of tasks you can define for the ATV IMC are:
Total number of tasks = 9
 Cyclic tasks = 3
 Freewheeling tasks = 1
 External Event tasks = 5

Special Considerations for Freewheeling
A Freewheeling task (see page 32) does not have a fixed duration. In Freewheeling mode, each
task scan starts when the previous scan has been completed and after a period of system
processing (30% of the total duration of the Freewheeling task). If the system processing period is
reduced to less than 15% for more than 3 seconds due to other tasks interruptions, a system error
is detected. For more information, refer to the System Watchdog (see page 33).
NOTE: You should not use a Freewheeling task in a multi-task application when some high priority
and time-consuming tasks are running. Doing so runs the risk of provoking a task Watchdog
Timeout. You should not assign CANopen to a freewheeling task. CANopen should be assigned
to a cyclic task.

Tasks
The table describes the fields of the Configuration screen:
Field Name
Definition
Priority
Configure the priority of each task with a number from 0 to 31 (0 is the highest priority, 31 is
the lowest).
Only one task at a time can be running. The priority determines when the task will run:
 a higher priority task will pre-empt a lower priority task
 tasks with same priority will run in turn (2 ms time-slice)
NOTE: Do not assign tasks with the same priority. If there are yet other tasks that attempt
to pre-empt tasks with the same priority, the result could be indeterminate and unpredicable.
For safety information, refer to Task Priorities (see page 34).
Type
These task types are available:
 Cyclic (see page 31)
 External (see page 32)
 Freewheeling (see page 32)
Watchdog
To configure the watchdog (see page 33), define these 2 parameters:
 Time: enter the timeout before watchdog execution.
 Sensitivity: defines the number of expirations of the watchdog timer before the
controller stops program execution and enters a HALT state (see page 39).
POUs
The list of POUs (see SoMachine, Programming Guide) (Programming Organization Units)
controlled by the task is defined in the task configuration window:
 To add a POU linked to the task, use the command Add Call and select the POU in the
Input Assistant editor.
 To remove a POU from the list, use the command Remove Call.
 To replace the currently selected POU of the list by another one, use the command
Change Call.
 POUs are executed in the order shown in the list. To move the POUs in the list, select a
POU and use the command Move Up or Move Down.
NOTE: You can create as many POUs as you want. An application with several small POUs,
as opposed to one large POU, can improve the refresh time of the variables in online mode.

Tasks
Task Types
Introduction
The following section describes the various task types available for your program, along with a
description of the task type characteristics.
Cyclic Task
A Cyclic task is assigned a fixed cycle time using the Interval setting in the Type section of
Configuration subtab for that task. Each Cyclic task type executes as follows:
1. Read Inputs: The physical input states are written to the %I input memory variables and other
system operations are executed.
2. Task Processing: The user code (POU, and so on) defined in the task is processed. The %Q
output memory variables are updated according to your application program instructions but not
yet written to the physical outputs during this operation.
3. Write Outputs: The %Q output memory variables are modified with any output forcing that has
been defined; however, the writing of the physical outputs depends upon the type of output and
instructions used.
For more information on defining the bus cycle task, refer to the SoMachine Programming
Guide.
For more information on I/O behavior, refer to Controller States Detailed Description
(see page 45).
4. Remaining Interval time: The controller firmware carries out system processing and any other
lower priority tasks.
NOTE: If you define too short a period for a cyclic task, it will repeat immediately after the write of
the outputs and without executing other lower priority tasks or any system processing. This will
affect the execution of all tasks and cause the controller to exceed the system watchdog limits,
generating a system watchdog exception.
NOTE: Get and set the interval of a Cyclic Task by application using the GetCurrentTaskCycle
and SetCurrentTaskCycle function. (Refer to Toolbox Advance Library Guide for further details.)
EIO0000000390 04/2014
31
Tasks
Freewheeling Task
A Freewheeling task does not have a fixed duration. In Freewheeling mode, each task scan begins
when the previous scan has been completed and after a short period of system processing. Each
Freewheeling task type executes as follows:
1. Read Inputs: The physical input states are written to the %I input memory variables and other
system operations are executed.
2. Task Processing: The user code (POU, and so on) defined in the task is processed. The %Q
output memory variables are updated according to your application program instructions but not
yet written to the physical outputs during this operation.
3. Write Outputs: The %Q output memory variables are modified with any output forcing that has
been defined; however, the writing of the physical outputs depends upon the type of output and
instructions used.
For more information on defining the bus cycle task, refer to the SoMachine Programming
Guide.
For more information on I/O behavior, refer to Controller States Detailed Description
(see page 45).
4. System Processing: The controller firmware carries out system processing and any other
lower priority tasks (for example: HTTP management, Ethernet management, parameters
management).
External Event Task
This type of task is event-driven and is initiated by the detection of a hardware or hardware-related
function event. It starts when the event occurs unless pre-empted by a higher priority task. In that
case, the External Event task will start as dictated by the task priority assignments.
NOTE: It is not possible to assign more than one task to a single external event.
You can trigger a task associated to an external event through:
A rising edge on a Fast input (on_LI53 and on_LI54)
 The start/stop of the controller program (on_Start and on_Stop)
 An external event periodically produced by the local drive (on_Sync)

NOTE: You can configure the on_Sync period with the SyncTaskPeriodSet function (see Altivar
ATV IMC Drive Controller, ATV IMC UserLib Library Guide) (default value is 2 ms).

EIO0000000390 04/2014
Tasks
System and Task Watchdogs
Introduction
Two types of watchdog functionality are implemented for the ATV IMC:


System Watchdogs: These watchdogs are defined in and managed by the controller firmware.
These are not configurable by the user.
Task Watchdogs: Optional watchdogs that can be defined for each task. These are managed
by your application program and are configurable in SoMachine.
System Watchdogs
Two system watchdogs are defined for the ATV IMC. They are managed by the controller firmware
and are therefore sometimes referred to as hardware watchdogs in the SoMachine online help.
When the system watchdog exceeds its threshold conditions, an error is detected.
The threshold conditions for the 2 system watchdogs are defined as follows:
 If all of the tasks require more than 85% of the processor resources for more than 3 seconds, a
system error is detected. The controller enters the EMPTY state.
 If the lowest priority task of the system is not executed during an interval of 20 seconds, a
system error is detected. The controller responds with an automatic reboot into the EMPTY
state.
NOTE: System watchdogs are not configurable by the user.
Task Watchdogs
SoMachine allows you to configure an optional task watchdog for every task defined in your
application program. (Task watchdogs are sometimes also referred to as software watchdogs or
control timers in the SoMachine online help). When one of your defined task watchdogs reaches
its threshold condition, an application error is detected and the controller enters the HALT state.
When defining a task watchdog, the following options are available:
Time: This defines the allowable maximum execution time for a task. When a task takes longer
than this, the controller will report a task watchdog exception.
 Sensitivity: The sensitivity field defines the number of task watchdog exceptions that must
occur before the controller detects an application error.

To access the configuration of a task watchdog, double-click the Task in the Applications tree.
NOTE: For more information on watchdogs, refer to SoMachine Programming Guide.
EIO0000000390 04/2014
33
Tasks
Task Priorities
Task Priority Configuration
You can configure the priority of each Cyclic and on_LI5x tasks between 0 and 31 (0 is the highest
priority and 31 is the lowest). Each task must have a unique priority.
Priority levels from the highest to lowest:
On_SYNC task
 Cyclic task, on_LI53, on_LI54
 Freewheel task has the lowest priority.

NOTE: Changing the priority value of the On_SYNC and the Freewheel tasks will not be taken into
account. Their priority is fixed as described above. Further, changing the priority of the cyclic task,
on_LI5x above the On_SYNC or below the freewheel task will likewise have no effect.
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
Do not assign the same priority to different tasks.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
34
EIO0000000390 04/2014
Tasks
Default Task Configuration
Default Task Configuration
The MAST task can be configured in Freewheeling or Cyclic mode. The MAST task is automatically
created by default in Cyclic mode. Its preset priority is medium (15), its preset interval is 20 ms,
and its task watchdog service is activated with a time of 100 ms and a sensitivity of 1. Refer to Task
Priorities (see page 34) for more information on priority settings. Refer to System and Task
Watchdogs (see page 33) for more information on watchdogs.
Designing an efficient application program is important in systems approaching the maximum
number of tasks. In such an application, it can be difficult to keep the resource utilization below the
system watchdog threshold. If priority reassignments alone are not sufficient to remain below the
threshold, some lower priority tasks can be made to use fewer system resources if the
SysTaskWaitSleep function is added to those tasks. For more information about this function, see
the optional SysTask library of the system / SysLibs category of libraries.
NOTE: Do not delete or change the name of the MAST task. If you do so, SoMachine detects an
error when you attempt to build the application, and you will not be able to download it to the
controller.

Note 1
The Power Cycle (Power Interruption followed by a Power ON) deletes all output forcing settings.
Refer to Controller State and Output Behavior (see page 50) for further details.
Note 2
There is a 1-2 second delay between entering the BOOTING state and the LED indication of this
state. The boot process can take up to 5 seconds under normal conditions. The outputs will
assume their initialization states.
Note 3
In some cases, when a system error is detected, it will cause the controller to automatically reboot
into the EMPTY state as if no Boot application were present in the Flash memory. However, the
Boot application is not actually deleted from the Flash memory.
Note 4
The application is loaded into RAM after verification of a valid Boot application.
During the load of the boot application, a Check context test occurs to assure that the Remanent
variables are valid. If the Check context test is invalid, the boot application will load but the
controller will assume STOPPED state (see page 55).
Note 5a
The Starting Mode is set in the PLC settings tab of the Controller Device Editor.
Note 5b
When a power interruption occurs, the controller reassumes the state before the power
interruption. However, depending on the source of power of the ATV IMC drive controller and
whether you configured the Run/Stop input, the ATV IMC drive controller may interpret the loss of
power to the Run/Stop input as a Stop command. In this case, when power returns the controller
will assume the STOPPED state.
Note 6
During a successful application download, the following events occur:
The application is loaded directly into RAM.
 By default, the Boot application is created and saved into the Flash memory.

EIO0000000390 04/2014

Controller States and Behaviors
Note 7
The default behavior after downloading an application program is for the controller to enter the
STOPPED state irrespective of the Run/Stop input setting or the last controller state before the
download.
However, there are two important considerations in this regard:
Online Change: An online change (partial download) initiated while the controller is in the
RUNNING state returns the controller to the RUNNING state if successful and provided the
Run/Stop input is configured and set to Run. Before using the Login with online change
option, test the changes to your application program in a virtual or non-production environment
and confirm that the controller and attached equipment assume their expected conditions in the
RUNNING state.
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
Always verify that online changes to a RUNNING application program operate as expected
before downloading them to controllers.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
NOTE: Online changes to your program are not automatically written to the Boot application, and
will be overwritten by the existing Boot application at the next reboot. If you wish your changes to
persist through a reboot, manually update the Boot application by selecting Create boot
application in the Online menu (the controller must be in the STOPPED state to achieve this
operation).
Multiple Download: SoMachine has a feature that allows you to perform a full application
download to multiple targets on your network or fieldbus. One of the default options when you
select the Multiple Download... command is the Start all applications after download or
online change option, which restarts all download targets in the RUNNING state, provided their
respective Run/Stop inputs are commanding the RUNNING state, but irrespective of their last
controller state before the multiple download was initiated. Deselect this option if you do not
want all targeted controllers to restart in the RUNNING state. In addition, before using the
Multiple Download option, test the changes to your application program in a virtual or nonproduction environment and confirm that the targeted controllers and attached equipment
assume their expected conditions in the RUNNING state.
42
EIO0000000390 04/2014
Controller States and Behaviors
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
Always verify that your application program will operate as expected for all targeted controllers
and equipment before issuing the "Multiple Download…" command with the "Start all
applications after download or online change" option selected.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
NOTE: During a multiple download, unlike a normal download, SoMachine does not offer the
option to create a Boot application. You can manually create a Boot application at any time by
selecting Create boot application in the Online menu on all targeted controllers (the controller
must be in the STOPPED state for this operation).
Note 8
The SoMachine software platform allows many powerful options for managing task execution and
output conditions while the controller is in the STOPPED or HALT states. Refer to Controller States
Description (see page 45) for further details.
Note 9
To exit the HALT state it is necessary to issue one of the Reset commands (Reset Warm, Reset
Cold, Reset Origin), download an application or cycle power.
In case of non recoverable event (hardware watchdog or internal detected error), a cycle power is
mandatory.
Note 10
The RUNNING state has two exception conditions.
They are:
 RUNNING with External Detected Error: this exception condition is indicated by the MS Status
LED, which displays solid green with 1 red flash. You may exit this state by clearing the external
detected error. No controller commands are required.
 RUNNING with Breakpoint: this exception condition is indicated by the MS Status LED, which
displays 3 green flashes. Refer to Controller States Description (see page 45) for further details.
Note 11
When Starting Mode is set to Start in run and if the Run/Stop input is not configured, the controller
will reboot in STOPPED state. A second reboot will be necessary to set the controller in RUNNING
state.

The boot application can be different from the application loaded. It can happen when the boot
application was downloaded through USB Key, FTP or File Transfer or when an online change was
performed without creating the boot application.

WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION



Never assume that your controller is in a certain controller state before commanding a change
of state, configuring your controller options, uploading a program, or modifying the physical
configuration of the controller and its connected equipment.
Before performing any of these operations, consider the effect on all connected equipment.
Before acting on a controller, always positively confirm the controller state by viewing its LEDs,
confirming the condition of the Run/Stop input, verifying the presence of output forcing, and
reviewing the controller status information via SoMachine.(1)
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
(1)
The controller states can be read in the PLC_R.i_wStatus system variable of the ATV IMC
PLCSystem (see Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller, System Functions and Variables, ATVIMC PLCSystem Library Guide)

was not selected. All other tasks follow the actual setting.
 The LED indications are different.
EIO0000000390 04/2014
Controller States and Behaviors
Details of the STOPPED State
The following statements are true for the STOPPED state:
Ethernet, Serial (Modbus, ASCII, and so on), and USB communication services remain
operational and commands written by these services can continue to affect the application, the
controller state, and the memory variables.
 All outputs initially assume their configured default state (Keep current values or Set all
outputs to default) or the state dictated by output forcing if used. The subsequent state of the
outputs depends on the value of the Update IO while in stop setting and on commands
received from remote devices.

Task and I/O Behavior When Update IO While In Stop Is Selected
When the Update IO while in stop setting is selected:
 The Read Inputs operation continues normally. The physical inputs are read and then written
to the %I input memory variables.
 The Task Processing operation is not executed.
 The Write Outputs operation continues. The %Q output memory variables are updated to
reflect either the Keep current values configuration or the Set all outputs to default
configuration, adjusted for any output forcing, and then written to the physical outputs.
NOTE: Expert functions continue to operate. For example, a counter will continue to count.
However, these Expert functions do not affect the state of the outputs. The outputs of Expert I/O
conform to the behavior stated here.
NOTE: Commands received by Ethernet, Serial, USB, and CAN communications can continue to
write to the memory variables. Changes to the %Q output memory variables are written to the
physical outputs.
CAN Behavior When Update IO While In Stop Is Selected
The following is true for the CAN buses when the Update IO while in stop setting is selected:
 The CAN bus remains fully operational. Devices on the CAN bus continue to perceive the
presence of a functional CAN Master.
 TPDO and RPDO continue to be exchanged.
 The optional SDO, if configured, continue to be exchanged.
 The Heartbeat and Node Guarding functions, if configured, continue to operate.
 If the Behaviour for outputs in Stop field is set to Keep current values, the TPDOs
continue to be issued with the last actual values.
 If the Behaviour for outputs in Stop field is Set all outputs to default the last actual values
are updated to the default values and subsequent TPDOs are issued with these default
values.

Controller States and Behaviors
Task and I/O Behavior When Update IO While In Stop Is Not Selected
When the Update IO while in stop setting is not selected, the controller sets the I/O to either
the Keep current values or Set all outputs to default condition (as adjusted for output forcing
if used). After this, the following becomes true:
 The Read Inputs operation ceases. The %I input memory variablea are frozen at their last
values.
 The Task Processing operation is not executed.
 The Write Outputs operation ceases. The %Q output memory variables can be updated via
the Ethernet, Serial, and USB connections. However, the physical outputs are unaffected
and retain the state specified by the configuration options.
NOTE: Expert functions cease operating. For example, a counter will be stopped.
CAN Behavior When Update IO While In Stop Is Not Selected
The following is true for the CAN buses when the Update IO while in stop setting is not
selected:
 The CAN Master ceases communications. Devices on the CAN bus assume their configured
fallback states.
 TPDO and RPDO exchanges cease.
 Optional SDO, if configured, exchanges cease.
 The Heartbeat and Node Guarding functions, if configured, stop.
 The current or default values, as appropriate, are written to the TPDOs and sent once before
stopping the CAN Master.

Controller States and Behaviors
Controller States and Output Behavior
Introduction
The ATV IMC defines output behavior in response to commands and system events in a way that
allows for greater flexibility. An understanding of this behavior is necessary before discussing the
commands and events that affect controller states. For example, typical controllers define only 2
options for output behavior in stop: fallback to default value or keep current value.
The possible output behaviors and the controller states to which they apply are:
managed by Application Program
 keep Current Values
 set All Outputs to Default
 hardware Initialization Values
 software Initialization Values
 Output Forcing

Managed by Application Program
Your application program manages outputs normally. This applies in the RUNNING and RUNNING
with External Error detected states.
Keep Current Values
Select this option by choosing Keep current values in the Behavior for outputs in Stop dropdown menu of the PLC settings subtab of the Controller Editor. To access the Controller Editor,
right-click on the controller in the device tree and select Edit Object.
This output behavior applies in the STOPPED and HALT controller states. Outputs are set to and
maintained in their current state, although the details of the output behavior vary greatly depending
on the setting of the Update I/O while in stop option and the actions commanded via configured
fieldbusses. Refer to Controller States Description (see page 45) for more details on these
variations.
Set All Outputs to Default
Select this option by choosing Set all outputs to default in the Behavior for outputs in Stop
drop-down menu of the PLC settings subtab of the Controller Editor. To access the Controller
Editor, right-click on the controller in the device tree and select Edit Object.
This output behavior applies when the application is going from RUN state to STOPPED state or
if the application is going from RUN state to HALT state. Outputs are set to and maintained in their
current state, although the details of the output behavior vary greatly depending on the setting of
the Update I/O while in stop option and the actions commanded via configured fieldbusses.Refer
to Controller States Description (see page 45) for more details on these variations.

EIO0000000390 04/2014
Controller States and Behaviors
Hardware Initialization Values
This output state applies in the BOOTING, EMPTY (following power cycle with no boot application
or after the detection of a system error), and INVALID_OS states.
In the initialization state, analog, transistor, and relay outputs assume the following values:
For an analog output: Z (high impedance)
 For a fast transistor output: Z (high impedance)
 For a regular transistor output: 0 Vdc
 For a relay output: Open

Software Initialization Values
This output state applies when downloading or when resetting the application. It applies at the end
of the download or at the end of a reset warm or cold.
The software Initialization Values are the initialization values of outputs images (%I, %Q, or
variables mapped on %I or %Q).
By default, they are set to 0 but it is possible to map the I/O in a GVL and assign to the outputs a
value different from 0.
Output Forcing
The controller allows you to force the state of selected outputs to a defined value for the purposes
of system testing, commissioning, and maintenance.
You are only able to force the value of an output while your controller is connected to SoMachine.
To do so, use the Force values command in the Debug menu.
Output forcing overrides all other commands to an output irrespective of the task programming that
is being executed.
When you logout of SoMachine when output forcing has been defined, you are presented with the
option to retain output forcing settings. If you select this option, the output forcing continues to
control the state of the selected outputs until you download an application or use one of the Reset
commands.
When the option Update I/O while in stop, if supported by your controller, is checked (default
state), the forced outputs keep the forcing value even when the logic controller is in STOP.
EIO0000000390 04/2014
51
Controller States and Behaviors
Output Forcing Considerations
The output you wish to force must be contained in a task that is currently being executed by the
controller. Forcing outputs in unexecuted tasks, or in tasks whose execution is delayed either by
priorities or events will have no effect on the output. However, once the task that had been delayed
is executed, the forcing will take effect at that time.
Depending on task execution, the forcing could impact your application in ways that may not be
obvious to you. For example, an event task could turn on an output. Later, you may attempt to turn
off that output but the event is not being triggered at the time. This would have the effect of the
forcing being apparently ignored. Further, at a later time, the event could trigger the task at which
point the forcing would take effect.
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION



You must have a thorough understanding of how forcing will affect the outputs relative to the
tasks being executed.
Do not attempt to force I/O that is containted in tasks that you are not certain will be executed
in a timely manner, unless your intent is for the forcing to take affect at the next execution of
the task whenever that may be.
If you force an output and there is no apparent affect on the physical output, do not exit
SoMachine without removing the forcing.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.


Effects of the Reboot:
1. The state of the controller depends on a number of conditions:
a. The controller state will be RUNNING if:
The Reboot was provoked by a power cycle and:
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in run, and if the Run/Stop input is not configured, and if
the controller was not in HALT state before the power cycle, and if the remanent variables
are valid.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in run, and if the Run/Stop input is configured and set to
RUN, and if the controller was not in HALT state before the power cycle, and if the remanent
variables are valid.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state, and Controller state was RUNNING
before the power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is set to not configured and the boot
application has not changed and the remanent variables are valid.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state, and Controller state was RUNNING
before the power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is configured and is set to RUN.
b. The controller state will be STOPPED if:
The Reboot was provoked by a Power cycle and:
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in stop.

- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state and the controller state was not
RUNNING before the power cycle.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state and the controller state was
RUNNING before the power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is set to not configured, and if
the boot application has changed.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state and the controller state was
RUNNING before the power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is set to not configured, and if
the boot application has not changed, and if the remanent variables are not valid.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state and the controller state was
RUNNING before the power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is configured and is set to STOP.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in run and if the controller state was HALT before the
power cycle.
- the Starting Mode is set to Start in run, and if the controller state was not HALT before the
power cycle, and if the Run/Stop input is configured and is set to STOP.
c. The controller state will be EMPTY if:
- There is no boot application or the boot application is invalid, or
- The reboot was provoked by specific detected System Errors.
d. The controller state will be INVALID_OS if there is no valid firmware.

8.
Forcing is maintained if the boot application is loaded successfully. If not, forcing is erased.
Diagnostic indications for detected errors are reset.
The values of the retain variables are restored if saved context is valid.
The values of the retain-persistent variables are restored if saved context is valid.
All non-located and non-remanent variables are reset to their initialization values.
The values of the %MW registers are reset to 0.
All fieldbus communications are stopped and restarted after the boot application is loaded
successfully.
9. All I/O are reset to their initialization values and then to their user-configured default values if
the controller assumes a STOPPED state after the reboot.
For details on variables, refer to Remanent Variables (see page 60).
NOTE: The Check context test concludes that the context is valid when the application and the
remanent variables are the same as defined in the Boot application.
NOTE: If you provide power to the Run/Stop input from the same source as the controller, the loss
of power to this input will be detected immediately, and the controller will behave as if a STOP
command was received. Therefore, if you provide power to the controller and the Run/Stop input
from the same source, your controller will normally reboot into the STOPPED state after a power
interruption when Starting Mode is set to Start in as previous state.
NOTE: If you make an online change to your application program while your controller is in the
RUNNING or STOPPED state but do not manually update your Boot application, the controller will
detect a difference in context at the next reboot, the remanent variables will be reset as per a Reset
cold command, and the controller will enter the STOPPED state.

 A connected device reports a detected error to the controller.
 The controller detects an error with an external device whether it
reports a detected error, for example when the external device is
communicating but not properly configured for use with the
controller.
 The controller detects an error with the state of an output.
 The controller detects a communication interruption with a device.
 The controller is configured for a module that is not present or not

any SoMachine command to enter the RUN state is ignored.
 When the configured RUN/STOP input is at logic 1, then the controller accepts RUN commands.

Addressing
Addressing Methods
SoMachine allows you to program instructions with 2 different methods of parameter usage:
symbolic addresses, also called indirect addresses
 immediate addresses, also called direct addresses

SoMachine allows you to program instructions using either a direct or indirect method of parameter
usage. The direct method is called Immediate Addressing where you use a parameter’s direct
address, such as %IWx or %QWx for example. The indirect method is called Symbolic Addressing
where you first define symbols for these same parameters, and then use the symbols in
association with your program instructions.
Both methods are valid and acceptable, but Symbolic Addressing offers distinct advantages,
especially if you later make modifications to your configuration. When you configure I/O and other
devices for your application, SoMachine automatically allocates and assigns the immediate
addresses. Afterward, if you add or delete I/O or other devices from your configuration, SoMachine
will account for any changes to the configuration by reallocating and reassigning the immediate
addresses. This necessarily will change the assignments from what they had once been from the
point of the change(s) in the configuration.
If you have already created all or part of your program using immediate addresses, you will need
to account for this change in any program instructions, function blocks, etc., by modifying all the
immediate addresses that have been reassigned. However, if you use symbols in place of
immediate addresses in your program, this action is unnecessary. Symbols are automatically
updated with their new immediate address associations provided that they are attached to the
address in the I/O Mapping dialog of the corresponding Device Editor, and not simply an ‘AT’
declaration in the program itself.
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
Inspect and modify as necessary any immediate addresses used in the program after modifying
the configuration.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
NOTE: Schneider Electric highly recommends the systematic use of symbols while programming
to avoid extensive program modifications and to limit the possibility of programming anomalies
once a program configuration has been modified by adding or deleting I/O or other devices.

When an ATV IMC drive controller is plugged to a drive, by default all the digital and analog outputs
of the drive are managed by the ATV IMC drive controller. To block the access of the digital and
analog outputs of the drive, change the register values of the drive by using the
DriveParameterWrite1 (see Altivar ATV IMC Drive Controller, ATV IMC
UserLib Library Guide) program.
For example: To block the access to the logic (digital) outputs, set the registers as followed:
Write [PP01] = 5212 (PPO01= Parameter Protection 01 address = 39003 //
5212 = OL1R = address logic digital outputs real image (bit0 = LI1...) 8
Relays + 8 LO)
Write [PCD] = 0x400 (OCD = Channel protection definition address = 39001
// 0x400 = bit 10 = Application channel card)
Write [PPRQ] = 2 (PPRQ = Parameter Protection requestion address = 39023
// 2 = ask protection, 3 = release protection)

IP Address Configuration
Introduction
There are different ways to assign the IP address of the controller:
address assignment by DHCP server
 address assignment by BOOTP server
 fixed IP address

IP address can be changed dynamically:
 via the Controller Selection tab in SoMachine.
NOTE: If the attempted addressing method is unsuccessful, the controller will start using a default
IP address (see page 87) derived from the MAC address.
NOTE: After you download a project with a new IP address, a power cycle is required to take the
new IP address into account.
Carefully manage the IP addresses because each device on the network requires a unique
address. Having multiple devices with the same IP address can cause unpredictable operation of
your network and associated equipment.
WARNING
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION






Verify that there is only one master controller configured on the network or remote link.
Verify that all devices have unique addresses.
Obtain your IP address from your system administrator.
Confirm that the device’s IP address is unique before placing the system into service.
Do not assign the same IP address to any other equipment on the network.
Update the IP address after cloning any application that includes Ethernet communications to
a unique address.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
NOTE: Verify that your system administrator maintains a record of all assigned IP addresses on
the network and subnetwork, and inform the system administrator of all configuration changes
performed.

EIO0000000390 04/2014
Ethernet Configuration
Default IP Address
The IP address by default is 10.10.x.x.
The last 2 fields in the default IP address are composed of the decimal equivalent of the last
2 hexadecimal bytes of the MAC address of the port.
The MAC address of the port can be retrieved on the label placed on the front side of the controller.
The default subnet mask is Default Class A Subnet Mask of 255.0.0.0.
NOTE: A MAC address is always written in hexadecimal format and an IP address in decimal
format. Convert the MAC address to decimal format.
Example: If the MAC address is 00.80.F4.01.80.F2, the default IP address is 10.10.128.242.
NOTE: To take into account the new IP address after the download of a project, reboot the
controller by doing a power cycle.
Address Classes
The IP address is linked:
to a device (known as the host)
 to the network to which the device is connected

An IP address is always coded using 4 bytes.
The distribution of these bytes between the network address and the device address may vary.This
distribution is defined by the address classes.
The different IP address classes are defined in this table:

Subnet Mask
The subnet mask is used to address several physical networks with a single network address. The
mask is used to separate the subnetwork and the device address in the host ID.
The subnet address is obtained by retaining the bits of the IP address that correspond to the
positions of the mask containing 1, and replacing the others with 0.
Conversely, the subnet address of the host device is obtained by retaining the bits of the IP
address that correspond to the positions of the mask containing 0, and replacing the others with 1.
Example of a subnet address:
IP address
192 (11000000)
1 (00000001)
17 (00010001)
11 (00001011)

1 (00000001)
16 (00010000)

NOTE: The device does not communicate on its subnetwork when there is no gateway.
Gateway
The gateway allows a message to be routed to a device that is not on the current network.
If there is no gateway, the gateway address is 0.0.0.0.

Modbus TCP Server
Introduction
Without any other configuration on the Ethernet port, the controller supports Modbus Server.
The transfer of information between a Modbus client and server is initiated when the client sends
a request to the server to transfer information, to execute a command, or to perform one of many
other possible functions.
After the server receives the request, it executes the command or retrieves the required data from
its memory. The server then responds to the client by either acknowledging that the command is
complete or by providing the requested data.

ATV IMC Web Server
Web Server
Introduction
The controller provides as standard an embedded Web server with a predefined factory built-in
website. You can use the pages of the website for module setup and control as well as application
diagnostic and monitoring. They are ‘ready to use’ using a simple Web browser. No configuration
or programming is required.
The Web server can be accessed by the navigators listed below:
Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 6.0 or higher)
 Mozilla Firefox (version 1.5 or higher)

NOTE: The Web server can be disabled by setting the Web Server active parameter in the
Ethernet Configuration (see page 81) tab.
The Web server is limited to 6 simultanous HTTP connections .
The Web server is a tool for reading and writing data, and control the state of the controller, with
full access to all data in your application. If, however, there are security concerns over these
functions, you must at a minimum assign a secure password to the Web Server or disable the Web
Server to prevent unauthorized access to the application. By enabling the Web server, you enable
these functions.
For reasons of security for your installation, you must immediately upon first log in change the
default password.
WARNING
UNAUTHORIZED DATA ACCESS



Immediately change the default password to a new, secure password.
Do not distribute the password to unauthorized or otherwise unqualified personnel.
Disable the Web server to prevent any unwanted or unauthorized access to data in your
application.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.
NOTE: A secure password is one that has not been shared or distributed to any unauthorized
personnel and does not contain any personal or otherwise obvious information. Further, a mix of
upper and lower case letters and numbers offer the greatest security possible. You should chose
a password length of at least 7 characters.
NOTE: Schneider Electric follows, and recommends to its customers, industry best practices in the
development and implementation of control systems. This recommendation includes a "Defensein-Depth" approach to secure an Industrial Control System. This approach places the controllers
behind one or more firewalls to restrict access to authorized personnel and protocols only.





Evaluate whether your environment or your machines are connected to your critical
infrastructure and, if so, take appropriate steps in terms of prevention, based on Defense-inDepth, before connecting the automation system to any network.
Limit the number of devices connected to a network to the minimum necessary.
Isolate your industrial network from other networks inside your company.
Protect any network against unintended access by using firewalls, VPN, or other, proven
security measures.
Monitor activities within your systems.
Prevent subject devices from direct access or direct link by unauthorized parties or unauthenticated actions.
Prepare a recovery plan including backup of your system and process information.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death, serious injury, or equipment
damage.

Glossary
BOOL
(boolean) A basic data type in computing. A BOOL variable can have one of these values: 0
(FALSE), 1 (TRUE). A bit that is extracted from a word is of type BOOL; for example, %MW10.4 is a
fifth bit of memory word number 10.
Boot application
(boot application) The binary file that contains the application. Usually, it is stored in the PLC and
allows PLC to boot on the application that the user has generated.
BOOTP
(bootstrap protocol) A UDP network protocol that can be used by a network client to automatically
obtain an IP address (and possibly other data) from a server. The client identifies itself to the server
using the client MAC address. The server, which maintains a pre-configured table of client device
MAC addresses and associated IP addresses, sends the client its pre-configured IP address.
BOOTP was originally used as a method that enabled diskless hosts to be remotely booted over a
network. The BOOTP process assigns an infinite lease of an IP address. The BOOTP service
utilizes UDP ports 67 and 68.
