This section provides information pertaining to wiring your ArmorStart distributive motor controller.
General Precautions
ATTENTION
ATTENTION
ATTENTION
The controller contains electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitive parts and assemblies. Static control
precautions are required when installing, testing, servicing, or repairing the assembly. Component damage
may result if the ESD control procedures are not followed. If you are not familiar with static control
procedures, refer to Guarding Against Electrostatic Discharge, publication 8000-SB001, or any other ESD
protection documents.
An incorrectly applied or installed controller can damage components or reduce product life. Wiring or
application errors, such as an undersized motor, incorrect or inadequate AC supply, or excessive ambient
temperatures, may result in malfunction of the system.
Only personnel familiar with the controller and associated machinery should plan or implement the
installation, startup, and subsequent maintenance of the system. Failure to do so may result in personal
injury and equipment damage.
Additional Precautions for the Bulletin 284 Devices
ATTENTION
The ArmorStart device contains high-voltage capacitors which take time to discharge after removel of
mains supply. Before working on an ArmorStart device, help ensure isolation of mains supply from line
inputs [R, S, T (L1, L2, and L3)]. Wait at least three minutes for the capacitors to discharge to a safe voltage
level. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or death. Darkened display indicators are not an
indication that the capacitors have discharged to safe levels.
Only qualified personnel familiar with ArmorStart devices and associated machinery should plan or
implement the installation, startup, and subsequent maintenance of the system. Failure to do so may result
in personal injury and equipment damage.

ArmorStart Device Wiring
Wiring in an industrial control application can be divided into three groups; power, control, and signal.
Follow these recommendations for physical separation between these to reduce the coupling effect:
• Minimum spacing between different wire groups in the same tray should be 16 cm (6 in.).
• Run wire outside an enclosure conduit or have shielding or armor with equivalent attenuation.
• Run different wire groups in separate conduits.
• Minimum spacing between conduits containing different groups should be 8 cm (3 in.).
The table provides power, control, ground wire capacity, and tightening torque requirements. The power,

AC Supply Considerations for Bulletin 284 Units
This section describes AC supply considerations for Bulletin 284 units.
Ungrounded and High-resistive Distribution Systems
ATTENTION
The Bulletin 284 device contains protective metal oxide variables (MOVs) that are referenced to ground.
These devices should be disconnected if the Bulletin 284 device is installed on an ungrounded and
high-resistive distribution system.
Disconnect MOVs
To prevent device damage, the MOVs connected to ground must be disconnected if the device is installed on
an ungrounded and high resistive distribution system where the line-to-ground voltages on any phase could
exceed 125% of the nominal line-to-line voltage. To disconnect the MOVs, follow this procedure to remove
the jumper.
1. Loosen the four mounting screws before installing the Bulletin 284 device.
2. Unplug the started module from the base unit by pulling forward.
Jumper
ATTENTION
Do not remove this jumper if the unit is equipped with an EMI filter installed.
The EMI Filter option is required if the Bulletin 284 ArmorStart Distributed Motor Controller must be
CE-compliant. If the EMI Filter is selected, a 3 meter shielded 4-conductor cordset is provided as standard.
is option is only available with sensorless vector control.

Group Motor Installations For North American and Canadian Markets
The ArmorStart distributed motor controllers are listed for use with each other in group installations per
NFPA 79, Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery. When applied according to the group motor
installation requirements, two or more motors, of any rating or controller type, are permitted on a single
branch circuit. Group motor installation has been successfully used for many years in North America and
Canada.
Cabling and Installation Guidelines
In addition to conduit and seal-tight raceway, it is acceptable to use cable that is dual rated Tray Cable, Type
TC-ER and Cord, STOOW, for power and control wiring on ArmorStart installations. In North America and
Canada installations, the following guidelines are outlined by the NEC and NFPA 79.
In industrial environments where the conditions of maintenance and supervision ensure that only qualified
personnel service the installation, and where the exposed cable is continuously supported and protected
against physical damage by using mechanical protection, such as struts, angles, or channels, Type TC tray
cable that complies with the crush and impact requirements of type metal clad (MC) cable and is identified
for such use with the marking type TC-ER (Exposed Run) shall be permitted between a cable tray and the
use equipment or device as open wiring. The cable shall be secured at intervals not exceeding 1.8 m (6 ft) and
installed in a ‘good workman-like’ manner. Equipment grounding for the use equipment shall be provided by
an equipment grounding conductor within the cable.
Cables meeting these crush and impact requirements were designated and marked ‘Open Wiring’. Cable
marked this way is equivalent to the present Type TC-ER and can be used.
Refer to the following when installing the ArmorStart device in factory floor environments of industrial
applications.
ATTENTION
Cables, including those for control voltage including 24V DC and communication, are not to be exposed to
an operator or building traffic on a continuous basis. Locate the ArmorStart device to minimize exposure to
continual traffic is recommended. If the location to minimize traffic flow is unavoidable, other barriers to
minimize inadvertent exposure to the cabling should be considered. Routing cables should be done in such
a manner to minimize inadvertent exposure and/or damage.
Additionally, if conduit or other raceways are not used, we recommend that strain relief fittings be used when
installing the cables for the control and power wiring through the conduit openings.
The working space around the ArmorStart device may be minimized as the ArmorStart device does not
require examination, adjustment, servicing, or maintenance while energized. In lieu of this service, the
ArmorStart device is meant to be unplugged and replaced after proper lockout and tag-out procedures have
been employed.

System Layout and Wiring
Chapter 2
Since the ArmorStart device is available with a factory installed HOA keypad option, this may require the
ArmorStart device to be selected and installed as follows. If the application requires frequent use of the
hand-operated interface by the equipment operator:
• they should not be less than 0.6 m (2 ft) above the servicing level and are within easy reach of the
normal working position of the operator.
• the operator is not placed in a hazardous situation when operating them.
• the possibility of inadvertent operation is minimized.
If the operated interface is used in industrial environments where the conditions of maintenance and
supervision ensure that only qualified persons operate and service the ArmorStart operator interface, and the
installation is located so that inadvertent operation is minimized, then other installation locations with
acceptable access can be provided.
DeviceNet Network Installation
The ArmorStart distributed motor controller contains the equivalent of 0.76 m (30 in) of DeviceNet drop
cable's electrical characteristics and therefore 0.76 m (30 in) of drop cable must be included in the DeviceNet
drop cable budget for each ArmorStart controller in addition to actual drop cable required for the
installation.
The separation of the control power and DeviceNet power is recommended as a good design practice. This
minimizes the load on the DeviceNet supply, and prevents transients which may be present on the control
power system from influencing the communication controls.

Electromagnetic Compatibility
The following guidelines are provided for EMC installation compliance.
General Notes for Bulletin 284 Devices
• The motor cable should be kept as short as possible to avoid electromagnetic emission as well as
capacitive currents
• Conformity of the device with CE EMC requirements does not guarantee an entire machine
installation complies with CE EMC requirements. Many factors can influence total machine and
installation compliance.
• Using an EMI filter with any ArmorStart device rating, may result in relatively high-ground leakage
currents. Therefore, the filter must only be used in installations and solidly grounded (bonded) to the
building power distribution ground. Grounding must not rely on flexible cables and should not include
any form of plug or socket that would permit inadvertent disconnection. Some local codes may require
redundant ground connections. The integrity of all connections should be periodically checked.
Ground the ArmorStart Controller
Connect a grounding conductor to the terminal provided as standard on each ArmorStart Distributed Motor
Controller.

ArmorStart Local Control Configuration
DeviceLogix Programming Example
This example is a combination of different modes that can be used together in an application for the 284D
ArmorStart device. A logic controller ladder logic program is controlling the ArmorStart device (auto
control). In the event of an I/O connection fault, the external push buttons (manual control) will be allowed
to control the ArmorStart and local I/O. A tripped condition, whether in manual or auto control, will
provide a status indication of a trip using a stack light (controlled by output A). An IO Connection fault is
also indicated on the same stack light. In an IO Connection fault, the stack light will be steady state. If both
happen, the stack light will remain solid. In addition to the fault or tripped indication on the stack light, a
second stack light is used to indicate the ArmorStart device is given a run command either from the PLC
processor or the push buttons. Drive input 1 is used to command the preset speed of the drive in manual
control.
DeviceLogix Example
The automatic (PLC processor) controlled portion of the DeviceLogix example shows the network input 0
and IO Connection fault negated to provide an output. The Boolean OR gate is in place for a second input
that is used later in the example. If there is an IO Connection fault, the PLC processor will not be able to
control the DeviceNetLogix device.
84

ArmorStart Local Control Configuration
Chapter 4
Network Input 0 Logic
If there is an IO Connection fault, manual operation from a pendant station or other push buttons will be
allowed. In this example, input 1 of the Boolean OR gate is used for the PLC control. In manual control,
input 0 could be from a sensor on a conveyor belt in which after manually starting the conveyor using a
pendant station, the product will pass the sensor. After a user selected count, the conveyor motor will stop
until another start command is given. Multiple sensors can be used along with logic to start and stop the
motor.
Input 1 Logic
The program also shows one of the ways in which a fault or trip can be programmed via the DeviceLogix
program. For example, a flashing stack light can be an indication of a fault or trip.

Modify ArmorStart Add-On Instruction for Equipment Status Faceplate
TIP
IMPORTANT
This is an optional step and necessary only if you intend to use the Equipment Status Faceplate. To skip this
step, go to Integrate ArmorStart AOI into Your Application Program Routines on page 96.
To incorporate Equipment Status Faceplate into your application, make sure the PanelView Plus terminal
supports 800x600 window size.
The ME Equipment Status Faceplate files let you quickly load and configure a summary display of
pre-configured status and diagnostic displays or faceplates for FactoryTalk View Machine Edition software.
The Equipment Status Faceplate works in conjunction with individual device faceplates and provides a single
summary display of all the faceplates that may be configured for an application. You can configure up to nine
device faceplates to run with the Equipment Status faceplate and you can launch each device faceplate
directly from it.
This example shows the Equipment Status Faceplate that you can add to your specific hardware system
display. This faceplate is configured for three rows or three devices and provides overall status of the device,
up to four additional status values to be monitored, and can launch the individual device faceplates for more
detailed information.
Example of Equipment Status Display Configured with Three Device Faceplates
You can launch these faceplates
from the Goto buttons.
Follow these steps to modify your
ArmorStart Add-On Instruction by
using the Equipment Status
Faceplate and the ArmorStart
device you just configured.
1. Determine how many of the nine available rows you will use on the Equipment Status faceplate and
which device faceplate you will assign to each row.
Publication IASIMP-QS015C-EN-P
95
Chapter 5
Faceplate Logix Integration
2. Set the tag Inp_NumRowsVis for your ArmorStart Add-On Instruction to the number of rows that you
will use on the Equipment Status Faceplate.
a. Under the Add-On Instructions folder in the system tree,
double-click the ArmorStart Add-On Instruction that you will
use for the device in row 1.
b. Under the Parameters tab, find the Inp_NumRowsVis tag and
check the Vis box to make the tag visible on the AOI.
This tag only needs to be set for the Add-On Instruction used
in row 1 of the faceplate.
The default number of rows, ‘Inp_NumRowsVis’ is set to 9. You can change the number of rows
displayed here by changing the default, or edit the field directly on the Add-On Instruction when
creating your ladder rungs.

Integrate Your ArmorStart Device Application
The individual Add-On Instructions include the interface logic and tags from both the faceplate (operator
control) and application program (program control) to monitor and control the ArmorStart device.
IMPORTANT
Do not write directly to the Corresponding ArmorStart Device Tags that are listed in the ArmorStart
Command and Set Value Tags tables in Add-On Instruction Program Tag Listing and Function, on page 104.
Publication IASIMP-QS015C-EN-P

Chapter 5
Faceplate Logix Integration
Understanding Operator Control and Program Control Transfer Logic
The first three rungs of each Add-On Instruction file handle the transfer of control from the Logix program
(program control) to the faceplate (operator control). It is important that you understand how the two
operator control rungs (shown below) operate so you achieve the program-to-operator and
operator-to-program control transfers.
Two Operator Rungs
In this example, the rungs enable operator control of the intended ArmorStart device. You can initiate
Command requests (Cmd) from either the Logix Programs (ProgOperReq) or FactoryTalk View ME
ArmorStart Faceplate (OperOperReq).
Enabling Operator Control of Drive
To enable operator control for an ArmorStart associated with Motor_with_284 AOI instance, you could add
a rung to the Logix MainRoutine with specific input conditions driving an output instruction with the tag
name Motor_with_284.Cmd_ProgOperReq. Likewise, you could add a push button within a FactoryTalk
View ME/SE Faceplate with a value tag name of #1.Cmd_OperOperReq with the #1 parameter for that
faceplate display associated with Motor_with_284.
A Motor_with_284.Cmd_ProgToOperPermissive tag must also be included in the Logix program to control
whether program-to-operator control transfer requests are allowed or acted upon. A tag value of 1 permits
102
Publication IASIMP-QS015C-EN-P
Faceplate Logix Integration
Chapter 5
the associated control transfer requests. A value of 0 prevents the associated control transfer requests.
ATTENTION
If an Xxxx.Cmd_ProgToOperPermissive tag is set to 1, the associated Add-On Instruction is programmed to
allow a transfer from Program Control to Operator Control regardless of the current direction, speed, or
active status of the ArmorStart device. In addition, the AOI is programmed to transfer the current Program
Speed value Xxxx.Set_SpeedProg to the associated Operator Speed tag, Xxxx.Set_SpeedOper, creating a
bumpless transfer when a transfer from Program Control to Operator Control is executed.
Therefore, if the ArmorStart device is running at the time of a program-to-operator control transition, the
ArmorStart device continues to run at the most recent commanded Program Speed. If a different
program-to-operator control transition is desired, then the status of the ArmorStart device and the operator
command requests must be monitored and the appropriate program commands must be issued before the
Xxxx.Cmd_ProgToOperPermissive is allowed. Therefore, it is very important that the status of the
ArmorStart device is monitored and appropriate program commands, for the specific application, are issued
before the Xxxx.Cmd_ProgToOperPermissive tag is set. This makes sure that a safe program-to-operator
control transfer is executed.
ATTENTION
If an Xxxx.Cmd_OperToProgramPermissive tag is set to 1, the associated AOI is programmed to allow a
transfer from Operator Control to Program Control regardless of the current direction, speed, or active
status of the ArmorStart device.
In addition, there is no logic within the Add-On Instruction that sets the Set_SpeedProg upon transfer to
Program mode, so the ArmorStart device assumes the last commanded Set_SpeedProg speed value unless
logic is programmed outside of the Add-On Instruction to set it to a different value. Therefore, it is very
important that the status of the ArmorStart device is monitored and appropriate Program commands, for the
specific application, are issued before the Xxxx.Cmd_OperToProgramPermissive tag is set. This makes sure
that a safe operator-to-program control transfer is executed.
ATTENTION
There is no logic within the AOI that controls the minimum or maximum ArmorStart Commanded Speed
values sent to the specific drive.
It is important to understand the limitations of the motor connected to the specific drive and set the
appropriate ArmorStart device parameters and add additional Program logic if necessary.
ATTENTION
If the ArmorStart device is started in Operator Mode and the FactoryTalk View ME ArmorStart Faceplate is
closed while the ArmorStart device is running, the ArmorStart device will continue running at the current
Set_SpeedOper tag value.
It is critical to understand how this operation affects the specific application and appropriate actions and
safeguards are implemented.

Add Alarm Logic for Alarm History Faceplate
TIP
This is an optional step and necessary only if you intend to use the Alarm History Faceplate. To skip this
step, go to Download the Project on page 111.
TIP
To incorporate Alarm History Faceplate into your application, the PanelView Plus terminal must support
800x600 window size.
The ME Alarm History Faceplate files let you quickly load and configure a pre-configured Alarm History
display or faceplate for FactoryTalk View Machine Edition software. The Alarm History Faceplate works in
conjunction with the individual ME_ArmorStart_Faceplates/AOIs, and provides an Alarm History of all of
the device alarms and warnings that are configured to its alarm triggers. The Alarm History Faceplate files
include pre-configured alarm triggers and messages for the ArmorStart devices.
In this example, an Alarm History Faceplate is
displaying alarms and faults from ArmorStart
devices (Motor 1 and Motor 2). The pre-configured
alarm messages include an embedded string tag that
is updated by the individual ArmorStart faceplate
Add-On Instruction files when their specific alarms
are triggered.
Publication IASIMP-QS015C-EN-P
109
Chapter 5
Faceplate Logix Integration
Follow these steps to add Alarm History logic to your routine.
1. Add the following rung to your program for each individual device Add-On Instruction.
The three tags pointed to were created already by your Add-On Instruction and exist in the tag database.
You will need to edit the tag name prefixes to adjust for the name given to your Add-On Instruction.
This example uses an Add-On Instruction named Motor_With_284.
2. Create the following controller scope tags (which will be used to pass data to the alarm summary in FT
ME) for the different device trigger types.
•
For the Move instruction, the destination tag
must be created as one of the controller
scoped tags.
•
For the copy instruction, the source and
destination tags must be created as a
controller scoped tag, type STRING.
Motor_With_284 is the device Add-On
Instruction name used for the specific device
in your program. The tag type must be
STRING.
3. In the controller tag database, enter the names you need your devices to appear with in the Alarm History
faceplate, into the source string tag you created in the COP instruction.
4. Add the following rung to clear your Alarm Trigger tag when a fault reset has been commanded.
The ArmorStart Trigger tag is being cleared by this rung. You will need to edit the tag name prefixes to
adjust for the name given to your Add-On Instruction. This example uses ArmorStart_With_284.

4. Open and configure the
parameter file.
There is one parameter field
that must be defined.
5. Save the file once changes are
made.
Each Parameter (1…9) corresponds to the device AOI tag name of each Equipment Status Faceplate row
(1…9). You must assign the 1 parameter to a Pre-configured Device Faceplate AOI that includes the
Inp_NumRowsVis assignment that was configured in Chapter 5.
The remaining Parameters (2…9) must be assigned to valid Pre-configured Device Faceplate AOI tag names
for the Equipment Status Faceplate to operate without errors, even if corresponding Equipment Status
Faceplate Rows are not being used or assigned to non-preconfigured devices. We recommend you fill in the
non-used parameters with the last valid AOI tag name.
In this example, we are only using
one row, therefore, parameters
#1…3 are assigned to the
corresponding device AOI tags
that we wish to display in rows
#1…3. The remaining parameters
#4….9 are assigned to the #3 row
device AOI tag name

Configure Additional Device Value Columns
Not all device faceplates used with the Equipment Status Faceplate are configured to display four value fields.
If unused value fields are needed then additional logic will need to be added to the existing device AOI to
move the additional AOI tag values to the corresponding Sts_Valuexx tags.
In this example, pre-configured logic within the ArmorStart Faceplate AOI is used to write values to Values 1
and 2. Simply add additional MOV instructions to move other values to Values 3 and 4 if desired.

Add Alarm History Faceplate
TIP
This is an optional step and necessary only if intend to use the Alarm History Faceplate. To skip this step,
go to Test the Project on page 139.
IMPORTANT
In order to use the Alarm History faceplate into your application, you must have PanelView Plus terminal
that supports 800x600 window size.
The ME Alarm History Faceplate files let you quickly load and configure a pre-configured Alarm History
display or faceplate for FactoryTalk View Machine Edition software. The Alarm History Faceplate works in
conjunction with the individual ME_ArmorStart_Faceplates, ME_PowerFlex_Faceplates/AOIs,
ME_Kinetix_Faceplates/AOIs, and ME_E3 Plus_Faceplates/AOIs, and provides an Alarm History of all of
the device alarms and warnings that are configured to its alarm triggers. The Alarm History Faceplate files
include pre-configured alarm triggers and messages for the ArmorStart devices, Kinetix Motion Axis, and E3
Plus Overload Relay family of devices.
In this example, an Alarm History Faceplate is displaying alarms/faults from ArmorStart devices (Motor 1
and Motor 2). The pre-configured alarm messages include an embedded string tag that is updated by the
individual ArmorStart faceplate AOI files when their specific alarms are triggered.

Connect to the ArmorStart Controller
Follow this procedure to connect the 193-DNCT terminal to the ArmorStart controller.
1. Mount the 1485P-P1R5-MN5R1 mini-mini-micro tee port to the DeviceNet connection on one of the
ArmorStart controllers in your application.
It does not matter which ArmorStart
controller you connect to on the
network.
If necessary, remove the DeviceNet cable
from the ArmorStart device if the cable is
already connected to the unit. The
selection of the ArmorStart device in the
network does not matter as the node
address is not dictated by its physical
location.
DeviceNet Connector
2. Reconnect the DeviceNet cable that was
removed from the network to the mini
connector on the 1485P-P1R5-MN5R1 mini-mini-micro tee port.
3. Attach the DeviceNet male micro-connector end of the 193-CM1 cable to the 1485P-P1R5-MN5R1
mini-mini-micro tee port.
4. Attach the other end (plug connection) of
the 193-CM1 cable to the 193-DNCT
device.
The 193-CM1 cable can be connected to
other female micro-connectors on the
network, not just the
1485P-P1R5-MN5R1 mini-mini-micro
tee port.

Appendix C
Applying Power to the 193-DNCT Terminal
The DeviceNet configuration terminal (catalog number 193-DNCT) is shipped so that when it is placed on
the network for the first time, it will automatically set its baud rate to that of the traffic on the network, and
then assign itself an unused network address. When power is applied, the following screen is displayed. The
193-DNCT obtains its power from the DeviceNet network in this example.
Initial Screen
Baud = Fixed Baud Rate
Auto = AutoBauding
Actual Baud Rate
Actual Terminal Address
Adrs = Fixed HIM MacID
Auto = Auto Addressing
There is a 10 second power-up delay programmed at the factory. The above screen will appear for at least 10
seconds on initial powerup. The power-up delay can be modified in the Terminal Setup screen described in
the following section. Once the communication rate is determined and a network address has been set, the
terminal will display the Network Who screen, which displays a list of all devices on the network.
IMPORTANT
If the terminal fails to enter the Network Who screen after approximately 20 seconds, it is
because it could not determine the network baud rate due to lack of traffic on the network.
Pressing the ESC key will allow you to enter the Terminal Setup screen so that a fixed baud
rate and network address can be set for the terminal.
To go directly to the Terminal Setup screen, press and hold the ESC key while applying power.
