AAUI Port Unlike the CPU364, the CPU374 does not have an AAUI Port. Important Product Information 3 GFK-2123M CPU Problems Resolved by Firmware Version 12.01 Subject Description CRC Checksum Error and/or Illegal Boolean Opcode Error Possible After Run-Mode Store A Run-mode store followed by a Run-to-Stop transition may occasionally cause either a CRC Checksum Error fault or an Illegal Boolean Opcode fault in the PLC fault table. Ethernet Problems Resolved by Firmware Version 3.30 Subject Description Multicast Data Now Filtered The CPU374 now does hardware filtering of multicast data over Ethernet. This means that extraneous multicast messages on the network will not impose an additional load on the CPU374 PLC, potentially degrading performance. Communication Delay after ARP Request When reading/writing data from/to the CPU374 Ethernet interface, each periodic ARP request from the Ethernet interface no longer results in a 1 second communication delay. New Ethernet Features and Enhancements Subject Description Web Server for Monitoring via Network The Ethernet Interface within the CPU374 module provides basic Reference Table, PLC Fault Table, and IO Fault Table data monitoring over the Ethernet network from a standard web browser. This capability is display-only; the web server does not permit changing any data or faults within the PLC. EGD Class II EGD Class II functionality (EGD Commands) supports acknowledged single command transfers (sometimes referred to as datagrams) and Reliable Data Service (RDS, a delivery mechanism to make sure a command message gets through once and only once). SRTP Channels SRTP Channels: Support for up to 16 SRTP Channels: SRTP (Client) Channels provides communication from PLC to PLC, or from the PLC to a host application SRTP server, over an Ethernet Network using the SRTP/TCP/IP protocol. Up to 36 SRTP/TCP connections total, consisting of up to 20 SRTP Server connections and up to 16 Client Channels. Note that specifying a Remote PLC or Host Application SRTP Server by name is not supported in the CPU374. The Channel Commands are: Establish Read Channel (2003). Requests that a channel be established between the Local PLC (client) and a Remote PLC (server) and that data be read from the Remote PLC and transferred to the Local PLC. Establish Write Channel (2004). Requests that a channel be established between the Local PLC and a Remote PLC and that data from the Local PLC be transferred to the Remote PLC (read from the client and written to the server). Send Information Report (2010). Requests that a specified block of memory within the Local PLC be transferred to a Host Application SRTP Server (rather than a Remote PLC). Abort Channel (2001). This is a local command: communication occurs only between the Local PLC and the local Ethernet Interface. It requests that the Ethernet interface stop and disconnect a specific channel from the Remote PLC. The interface also allows for a way to specify all channels be aborted. Retrieve Detailed Channel Status (2002). This is a local command: communication occurs only between the Local PLC and the local Ethernet Interface. It requests that the current Detailed Channel Status Data (DCSD) words be returned for the specified channel number. The DCSD consists of two words that contain the last channel status codes that occurred and an active/inactive channel indicator. 4 Important Product Information GFK-2123M CPU Restrictions and Open Issues Subject Description Power Supply Serial Port does not Respond to SNP/SNPX Requests The Power Supply Serial Port does not respond to SNP or SNPX requests that include the break character if: an Attach message is received that is missing the last character before the Block Check Code (BCC), a message is received that has an invalid BCC or is corrupted so the calculated BCC doesn’t match the BCC specified in the message. Power to the CPU must be cycled to regain communications. Call to Service Request 24 May Need to be Repeated As expected, a Loss of, or missing option module fault is always recorded in the PLC fault table when using SVC REQ #24 to reset an IO module. However, the CPU374 does not always record the corresponding Reset of, addition of, or extra option module. Instead, this fault occurs every other execution of SVC #24 rather than every execution. Serial Communication at 1200 Baud A break-free SNP serial connection at 1200 baud may fail occasionally. If failures are observed, users should choose a higher baud rate. Programmer communications are not affected by this problem. Ethernet Restrictions and Open Issues Subject Description Number of SRTP Requests Tallied May Vary When running multiple SRTP client channels, the number of requests, as reported by the client and the server, may differ between the connections. SRTP Connections Remain Open After IP Address Changed The Ethernet Interface does not terminate all open SRTP connections before changing its IP address. Once the local IP address has changed, any existing open TCP connections are unable to normally terminate. This can leave SRTP connections open until their underlying TCP connections time out. If quicker recovery of the SRTP connection is needed, modify the wkal_idle Advanced User Parameter to reduce the TCP keep alive timer down to the desired maximum time for holding open the broken connection. Refer to TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 User's Manual, GFK-2382 for details. Reporting of Duplicate IP Address The CPU374 does not log an exception or a fault in the PLC Fault Table when it detects a duplicate IP address on the network. TCP Connections May Remain Half-Open on CPU374 Server if Client is Lost If an SRTP client with open connections to a CPU374 server is power cycled or reset, the server’s TCP connection may remain open for a long time (until the TCP keep-alive timer expires) once the client is restarted and attempts to reopen the communication. If quick recovery of the connection is needed, the AUP for TCP keep alive should be used to adjust the keep alive timer down to the desired maximum time for holding open the broken connection. REPP Does Not Save Results of Aborted PING The station manager REPP command does not retain the results of a PING that is aborted due to error. The PING results are reported when the PING is aborted, but subsequent REPP commands give the results of the last successfully terminated PING. STAT C Command Reports Invalid Rack/Slot Location The station manager STAT C command reports the CPU374 as being located in Rack 0 Slot 15 instead of Rack 0 Slot 1. Multiple Log Events The Ethernet Interface sometimes generates multiple exception log events and PLC Fault Table entries when a single error condition occurs. Under repetitive error conditions, the exception log and/or PLC Fault Table can be completely filled with repetitive error messages. Intermittent SNTP Loss of Synchronization Under moderately heavy EGD traffic load, the Ethernet Interface may occasionally lose synchronization with its SNTP time server and generate exception log event 29, entry 2=bH. Reduced EGD Consumption with Large Numbers of Produced Exchanges When large numbers of EGD exchanges are produced at a rapid rate, some consumed EGD exchanges may exhibit lower rates of consumption than expected. To better balance produced and consumed EGD exchange performance, reduce the number or frequency of the produced exchanges configured at this Ethernet Interface. Important Product Information 5 GFK-2123M Subject Description SRTP Communication Delays Average latency of communications on SRTP channels may vary considerably due to TCP retransmissions. SRTP client applications should be designed to take this variance into account. PLC Fault Table Last Update Date and Time The PLC Fault Table web page does not display the correct data for the PLC date and time field. The date and time displayed are the PCs local date and time, not the PLCs date and time. Spurious ‘Ethernet Failure’ Error On rare occasions, the error Module hardware fault may be reported on the Ethernet daughterboard. The corresponding fault in the exception log is Event = 1, followed by text Ethernet failure. This fault is a nuisance fault and may be ignored. Web Server Failure Under Heavy Load After several hours of heavy load on the web server, the web server may fail to return pages and may cause a LAN system-software fault to be logged. The web server will resume serving pages when the load is reduced. Reference Table Web Page Restriction If you select a user defined table and then try to go back to the pre-defined table of %R1-%R60, an error message may be displayed stating An error was detected when trying to retrieve setting from PC cookie. Fault Table Web Page Restriction On both the I/O and PLC Fault Table web pages, the PLC program name is not currently displayed in the area provided. Reference Table Web Page Format When using Netscape 4.7 to view the reference table web page, the size of the columns is incorrect. The first column is much wider than the others. Spurious Ethernet Fault In rare instances, after power cycle, the Ethernet Interface may log the following fault, Event = 28H, Entry 2 = 000eH. This fault can be safely ignored. Unexpected EGD CommReq Status EGD Commands may return COMMREQ Status 9590H (= internal error) instead of the expected B190H (= Can’t locate remote node) when unable to locate a remote device on the network. Too many EGD Commands Reported as Internal Error The Ethernet Interface supports 10 simultaneous EGD commands. When an 11th EGD Command COMMREQ is issued, the CSW value 9590H (= internal error) is returned. EGD Command Passwords Are Not Supported. Optional passwords are not allowed within EGD Command COMMREQs. Very Heavy EGD Production/Consumption at Server May Cause EGD Command Timeouts Very heavy EGD production and/or consumption at a server device may cause EGD command timeout errors when another device attempts to send EGD commands to that server. SRTP Server Errors Can Cause Timeouts at Channels Client The SRTP Server in the Ethernet Interface can encounter various errors when the remote Series 90 PLC client takes down an SRTP connection and then establishes a new connection. This can cause unexpected channel timeout errors 0190H or 0290H at the client. The SRTP server errors in the Ethernet exception log are identified as Event = 2; Entry 2 may be 001cH, or 0021H. 6 Important Product Information GFK-2123M Subject Description EGD Command Range Failure Can Write Partial To PLC Bit Memory When an EGD Command attempts a write operation to a bit-mode PLC reference memory range (%I, %Q; %T, %M, %SA, %SB, %SC) where the amount of data be written exceeds the configured size of that reference memory, the command will return failure status but partial data may be written into the reference memory. The amount of partial data written depends upon the starting bit memory location and the data length as follows: If data starts on a byte boundary (location = (8*n) + 1), no partial data is written. If data does not start on a byte boundary (location = (8*n)+1) and data exceeds the configured reference memory by 8 or more bits, partial data is written from the starting location to the next byte boundary after the starting location. If data does not start on a byte boundary (location = (8*n)+1) and data exceeds the configured reference memory by less than 8 bits, partial data is written from the stating location to the end of configured reference memory. For a Write PLC Memory command, this can occur when writing data into the target PLC. For Read PLC Memory or Read Exchange commands, this can occur when writing data received from the target PLC into the local PLC memory. The logic application must not use any data returned to the local PLC if the EGD command status indicates failure. To avoid writing partial data to the local or remote PLC, be sure that bit memory data transfers do not exceed the configured reference memory sizes at the appropriate PLC. Usage of New IP/Subnet Mask Configuration Because the Ethernet interface operates using a retained set of IP address + subnet mask information, a change to these values does not take effect until a restart of the module or power cycle of the rack containing the module. The user should be aware when altering these configuration values that their effect is not immediate. Cannot Change EGD Class 2 UDP Port Number Processing an Advanced User Parameter File containing parameter gctl_port does not actually change the value. COMMREQ Length Error The COMMREQ Status Word value 8190H (=COMMREQ is too short) may also be reported for EGD Command COMMREQs that are too long (contain more words than expected). Producer ID of Zero in Capabilities Response Producer ID is set to zero in the EGD Capabilities response if the IP address is set up by the setIP utility. Afterwards, any subsequent Hardware Configuration store will have the producer ID reported correctly. EGD I/O has unexpected variability under heavy load EGD I/O has intermittent unexpected variability under heavy load. For a Produced Exchange, EGD samples may occasionally be delayed by as much as a production period. Ethernet Interface time drift If time synchronization is not configured for the Ethernet Interface, it loses time at a rate of approximately 0.3 seconds per hour. Clear of large hardware configurations may cause log event 08/20 A Log event 08/20 may occur when very large hardware configurations are cleared and transfers are active on other Server connections. This log event can be safely ignored. EGD Command Timeout Incorrect Currently, the Ethernet Interface will wait for an EGD Command for a period of time equal to four times the configured timeout before expiring. If an accurate timeout is required, it should be configured to one quarter of the desired time. Remote Access to %W Memory with EGD Commands Not Supported The CPU374 does not currently support accesses to %W memory in remote PLCs with EGD Commands. Important Product Information 7 GFK-2123M CPU Operational Notes Subject Description Battery Backup Limitations The expected life of a standard Series 90-30 3-volt lithium battery used to back up a CPU374 is 1.2 months when used continuously. If a longer battery backup period is required, the external battery module (IC693ACC302) is available. The extended battery module provides a battery backup period of 15 months for the CPU374. See GFK-2124 for additional information. Overrides Not Stored to Flash or EZ Program Store Device When storing reference data to flash or the EZ Program Store Device, overrides are not stored. This means that after the reference data is read back from flash or the EZ Program Store Device and subsequently the PLC is put into Run Mode, the logic may execute differently. Therefore, overrides should not be used if reference data is stored to flash or to the EZ Program Store Device. If overrides are used, particular care should be taken to prevent loading reference data from flash at power up. If this precaution is not observed, unexpected operation may occur upon power cycle. Writing Flash Using a Serial Programmer When writing very large programs to flash memory, you may need to increase the request timeout value in the programming software to avoid receiving a request timeout message. An upper bound of 25 seconds is typically satisfactory. For further details, see the item Store of Program or Reference Tables to Flash may Cause Loss of Ethernet Communications in Section 6B, Ethernet Operational Notes in this document. Storing Large Configurations A Series 90-30 PLC using a CPU374 supports a maximum of 32 DSM314 modules. This number is reduced when other intelligent modules are used in the PLC, such as APM and GBC modules. It may also be reduced when: The number of racks in the PLC increases; The total size of logic, motion and AUP files increases; The application uses C logic blocks or a C logic program; and Connected programmers or HMI devices are used to read reference memory or fault tables. In some cases it may be possible to increase the number of DSM314 modules that the CPU374 will accept in the hardware configuration by storing logic first and then storing the configuration separately. Simultaneous Load and Store When operating with multiple programmers attached, initiating a store operation from one programmer during a load operation from another programmer will cause the load to fail. Transition Tables are not cleared when the reference tables are cleared The transition tables are not cleared upon clearing the reference tables through the programmer. Upgrading Firmware with Many Modules in Rack The process of upgrading the PLC firmware with the WinLoader utility may fail when multiple IO modules are in the main, remote or expansion racks, due to the extra time it takes to restart the PLC CPU. If the upgrade process fails, wait until the OK LED on the power supply stops blinking and then click the Retry button on the Winloader Firmware Update Failed dialog box. If the upgrade fails again, move the PLC CPU to a rack without IO modules and restart the upgrade process. Auto-baud Feature Not Supported The serial auto-baud feature, intended to allow a serial connection at lower baud rates than the default 19.2K, is not supported on the CPU374. If the user desires a connection at a non-default baud rate, the proper configuration should first be stored to the PLC. 8 Important Product Information GFK-2123M Ethernet Operational Notes Subject Description Ethernet Interface Functionality Changed For Release 12.0 of the CPU374, the Ethernet Interface functionality has been changed to more closely align with the PACSystems™ Ethernet Interface functionality. Functionality affected includes station manager commands. Functionality affecting application and protocol behavior has not been changed. For more details, see TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 User's Manual, GFK-2382. Configuration of IP Address is Required Before Using Ethernet Communications The Ethernet Interface within the CPU module cannot operate on a network until a valid IP address is configured. The necessary Ethernet addressing information must be configured prior to actual network operation, or to recover from inadvertent changes to the Ethernet addressing data at the Ethernet Interface. Use one of the following methods to initially assign an IP address: Connect a serial terminal to the Station Manager port of the PLC. Then use the CHSOSW command to enter the desired IP address. For details, see the TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 Station Manager Manual, GFK-2383. Temporarily assign an IP address to the module using the SetIP tool over the Ethernet network. For details, see TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 User's Manual, GFK-2382. Once a temporary IP address has been set up, the Ethernet Interface can be accessed over the network (such as by the Machine Edition programming software). The programmer should then be used to configure the proper IP address for the Ethernet Interface. Proper IP Addressing is Always Essential The CPU’s embedded Ethernet Interface must be configured with the correct IP Address for proper operation in a TCP/IP Ethernet network. Use of incorrect IP addresses can disrupt network operation for the PLC and other nodes on the network. Refer to TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 User's Manual, GFK-2382 for important information on IP addressing. When storing a new HW configuration to the PLC, be sure that the HW configuration contains the proper Ethernet addressing data (IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway IP Address) for the PLC. Note: Machine Edition programming software maintains the target IP address (used to connect the programmer to the target) independent of the contents of the HW Configuration for that target. The target IP address is set in the Target Properties in the ME Inspector window. Storing a HW Configuration whose Ethernet addressing data contains an IP Address that is different from the PLC target IP address will change the IP address used by the target PLC as soon as the Store operation is completed; this will break the Programmer connection. Before attempting to reconnect the Programmer, you must change the target IP address in the Target Properties in the CME Inspector window to use the new IP address. To regain communication at the former IP address, use the manual corrective action described above. Storing a HW Configuration containing default (0.0.0.0) or incorrect Ethernet addressing data to the PLC will result in loss of the Programmer connection and will require manual corrective action as described above. LAN Must be Tree, Not Ring The two Ethernet network ports on the Ethernet Interface must not be connected, directly or indirectly, to the same network device. The hub or switch connections in an Ethernet network must form a tree and not a ring; otherwise duplication of packets and network overload may result. In this situation, the Ethernet modules will continually reset. Important Product Information 9 GFK-2123M Subject Description Multiple Zero-Period EGD Exchanges May Not Produce Similar Numbers of Samples If more than one EGD produced exchange is configured for a production period of zero, the exchanges may not produce similar numbers of samples. Due to the way that scheduling occurs when multiple exchanges are scheduled as fast as possible, some zero period exchanges may produce significantly more samples than others. For more consistent EGD production, configure the produced EGD exchanges with non-zero production periods. Changing IP Address While SRTP Connection Open May Generate Log Events Open SRTP Server connections established with a remote SRTP client are not terminated as expected when the PLC’s IP address is changed (typically by storing a new HW Configuration). A Series 90 SRTP client (SRTP channels) reports either a 9690H or 0190H status; the SRTP connection may remain open until the connection is terminated as a result of a client timeout. Please refer to Open Ethernet Problems, Internal Problem ID Code CR-1434 for more information. AUP Parameter Should Not be Changed The Advanced User Parameter wsnd_buf should not be changed by the user. Changing the value of this parameter may cause the LAN led to go out and the Ethernet Interface to drop connection. Heavy Load Can Block Station Manager As explained in TCP/IP Ethernet for Series 90-30 CPU374 Station Manager Manual, GFK-2383, Chapter 1, a heavy EGD and/or SRTP load can block Station Manager operation. Web Server Browser Restrictions Internet Explorer version 4.0 running on Windows 98 will give an error when the reference table web page is accessed. Web Server operation has been verified with Internet Explorer version 5.0 Very Heavy EGD Production/Consumption at Server May Cause EGD Command Timeouts Very heavy EGD production and/or consumption at a server device may cause EGD command timeout errors when another device attempts to send EGD commands to that server. If EGD commands must preempt normal production, you may set the gcmd_pri Advanced User Parameter to 2 (see GFK-2224, Appendix A). Note that by doing so, EGD exchange production may be delayed. SRTP Application Timeouts Must Accommodate Network Connection Overhead The application timeouts within SRTP Channels also include the time needed to establish and maintain the underlying network and SRTP connection. Examples are establishing the TCP connection for a new channel, establishing communication with the remote device, and TCP retransmissions during Channel operations. If the time needed for TCP connection establishment or maintenance exceeds the user-specified channel application timeout values, an application timeout will occur. Channel application timeouts are temporary errors; the channel continues to run. AUP Parameter gcmd_pri Does Not Affect the Behavior of EGD The Advanced User Parameter gcmd_pri does not have the desired affect in the CPU 374. Under sufficiently heavy EGD data exchange load, EGD commands may still be blocked from execution. AUP Parameter chct_comp Does Not Affect SRTP Communications The Advanced User Parameter chct_comp has no affect on the CPU 374 communications, it is ignored by the firmware. 10 Important Product Information GFK-2123M Subject Description Client Channels TCP Resource Management There is a period of time that the OS Network stack hangs on to the TCP resources associated with a connection after it is closed. It applies to the initiator of the close, which is almost always the client side. This time is referred to as the TCP Linger Period. Once the TCP Linger Period expires (60 seconds in the current OS implementation), the TCP resources are released. Application developers using client channels need to be aware of this behavior when designing their logic. There are a finite number of TCP resources allocated to client channels, and if channel connections are brought up and down so fast that these resources are depleted, then the application may have to wait until a TCP resource frees up in order to establish another client channel (a COMMREQ Status of 0xA890 is returned if no TCP resources are currently available; application should wait and retry again). SRTP Client Channels provides features that help the user preserve TCP connections. These include a period time where one can establish an SRTP Channel and specify the channel to run at a given interval, or run as fast a possible. One can also specify a number of iterations, or run forever. Additionally, SRTP Channels allows re-tasking of an active channel to the same remote device, where the parameters of an active channel, such as the channel command type (Read/Write), number of repetitions, time periods, local memory address, remote memory address, etc. can be changed. SRTP Channels also allows re-tasking of an active channel to a different remote device (changing the remote device’s IP address, etc.). However, re-tasking to a different remote device will neither conserve TCP connections, nor save on the time it takes to create a channel. Ethernet Programmer May Briefly Lose Communications When Configuration Stored Storing a PLC configuration containing Ethernet configuration values may require the Ethernet interface to restart itself in order to use any changed configuration values. When the Ethernet interface restarts, an Ethernet PLC Programmer briefly reports a loss of communications. If this occurs, the Ethernet Interface will post two or more PLC faults with the text LAN systemsoftware fault; resuming, and fault-specific data starting with 080008 and/or 080042. In addition, faults with text Bad remote application request; discarded request (1B0021) and Local request to send rejected; discarded request (110005) may occur. When these faults occur, the STAT LED on the CPU374 is turned off to indicate posting of faults to the PLC fault tables. In some cases, a 10-second delay may occur before loss of communications is detected. Normal operation resumes once the Ethernet Interface restarts. The STAT LED can be reset using the Station Manager OK command. When the PLC configuration is stored from an Ethernet PLC Programmer, the communications loss occurs immediately after successful completion of the store. Attempts to store configuration plus logic and/or reference tables in one operation can fail. However, storing configuration separately from logic or reference tables always succeeds. Store of Program or Reference Tables to Flash May Cause Loss of Ethernet Communications While storing the PLC program, configuration, and/or reference tables from PLC RAM memory into Flash memory or to the EZ Program Store device, Ethernet data communications may be lost. Normal data transfers are temporarily suspended during a Flash or EZ Program Store device store operation. In these cases, Ethernet data transfers (such as used by an Ethernet PLC Programmer connection) will fail when the store exceeds the 16-second maximum period allowed for completion. Upon completion of the store operation, normal operation will resume. If a timeout occurs during a store to Flash or EZ Program Store device, the timeout value should be increased in the programming software being used. See the User’s Manual for the programming software for more details. EGD Performance Information Users requiring detailed EGD performance information should contact their Application Engineer and ask about the EGD Performance Application Note for the CPU374. Important Product Information 11 GFK-2123M Documentation Errata Series 90™-30/20/Micro PLC CPU Instruction Set Reference Manual, GFK-0467M, chapter 12, Control Functions, section PID Algorithm Selection (PIDISA or PIDIND) and Gains The description of the Derivation term should be replaced with the following text: The Derivative term is the time rate of change of the Error term in the interval since the last PID solution. Derivative = ∆Error / dt = (Error – previous Error) / dt, where dt = Current PLC elapsed time - PLC elapsed time at previous PID solution. In normal mode (that is, without Reverse-Action mode), this is the change in the error term. (Error – previous Error) = (SP – PV) – (previous SP – previous PV) = (previous PV – PV) – (previous SP – SP) However, when the Error Polarity bit (bit 0) in the Config Word is set, the sign of the change in the error term is reversed. (Error – previous Error) = (PV – SP) – (previous PV – previous SP) = (PV – previous PV) – (SP – previous SP) The change in the error term depends on changes in both the Set Point and the Process Variable. If the Set Point is constant, the difference between SP and the previous SP is zero and has no effect on the output. However, Set Point changes can cause large transient swings in the derivative term and hence the output. Loop stability may be improved by eliminating the effect of Set Point changes on the derivative term. Set the third bit (bit 2) of the Config Word to 1 to calculate the Derivative based only on the change in PV. For bit 2 set in normal mode (bit 0 = 0), (Error – previous Error) = (previous PV – PV), and with bit 2 set in Reverse-Action mode (bit 0 = 1), (Error – previous Error) = (PV – previous PV). For details on the Config Word, see page 12. For information about a related issue, see CPU Problems Resolved by Firmware Version 12.01 on page 3. 12 Important Product Information GFK-2123M In table 12-13 on page 12-82 of GFK-0467M, the Config Word row should be replaced with: %Ref+0012 Config Word Low 6 bits used Bit 0: Error Polarity. When this bit is 0, the error term is SP - PV. When this bit is 1, the error term is PV - SP. Setting this bit to 1 modifies the standard PID Error Term from the normal (SP – PV) to (PV – SP), reversing the sign of the feedback term. This is for reverse acting controls where the CV must go down when the PV goes up. Bit 1: Output Polarity. When this bit is 0, the CV output represents the output of the PID calculation. When it is set to 1, the CV output represents the negative of output of the PID calculation. Setting this bit to 1 inverts the Output Polarity so that CV is the negative of the PID output rather than the normal positive value. Bit 2: When this bit is 1, the setpoint is removed from derivative calculation. For details, see the discussion on page 11. Bit 3: Deadband action. When the Deadband action bit is 0, no deadband action is chosen. If the error is within the deadband limits, the error is to be zero. Otherwise the error is not affected by the deadband limits. If the Deadband action bit is 1, deadband action is chosen. If the error is within the deadband limits, the error is forced to be zero. If, however, the error is outside the deadband limits, the error is reduced by the deadband limit (error = error – deadband limit). Bit 4: Anti-reset windup action. When this bit is 0, the anti-reset windup action uses a reset back calculation. When the output is clamped, this replaces the accumulated Y remainder value with whatever value is necessary to produce the clamped output exactly. When the bit is 1, this replaces accumulated Y term with the value of the Y term at the start of the calculation. In this way, the pre-clamp Y value is held as long as the output is clamped. Bit 5: Enable derivative filtering. When this bit is set to 0, no filtering is applied to the derivative term. When set to 1, a first order filter is applied. This will limit the effects of higher frequency process disturbances on the derivative term.
