3.9.

REST MODE

The GE OHV AC propulsion system has a mode of operation called REST that is called for numerous times in the truck startup procedure. In this mode of operation, power is removed from the DC link of the propulsion system, thereby preventing the propulsion system from either accelerating or retarding the truck. REST mode is commanded by applying the Parking Brake. Applying the Parking Brake commands the propulsion system to go to the REST mode of operation, provided that all necessary truck operating conditions are met, such as truck stopped. Use the REST mode indicating light and the capacitor charged lights on the main control cabinet to confirm that the REST mode has been successfully achieved after command. The following are the major reasons for commanding the propulsion system to REST mode: 1. It should always be done when shutting down a truck. The propulsion system should be placed in REST prior to turning off the engine. It should always be done when the operator leaves the operators cab. It is often done when the truck is expected to idle for an extended period of time. It is often done during the course of truck startup and troubleshooting.

2. 3. 4.

To bring the GE OHV AC propulsion system out of REST, release the Parking Brake. Provided that truck operating conditions are met, there will be a period of time while the propulsion system energizes the DC link and gets ready for either accelerating and/or retarding mode truck operation.

GE/OEM DEFAULT CONFIGURATION FILES

There are 15 default GE configuration files for the OHV AC propulsion system. They are described in TABLE 1, Default Configuration Files and Descriptions.

NOTE: Files that do not apply to 150 Ton vehicles are shaded.
One OEM configuration file should be created by the GE Product Service representative or the OEM representative for each truck type at the mine location. The GE base configuration files in TABLE 1 should be used. The OEM files should then be used to create an individual truck configuration file for each truck. For example, if a mine location contained AC trucks of the following types: S S 930E standard with DDC 4000 930E standard with Cummins QSK60

The OEM configuration files would be as shown in Figure 18.

MEGGER TEST FOR GROUNDS

WARNING: Electric shock can cause serious or fatal injury. To avoid such injury, personnel should take and observe proper precautions when making system adjustment or performing system or component electrical tests. CAUTION: Check the polarity of the suppression modules and diodes across all coils: relays, contactors and reverser. If any are reversed, output channels on the digital input/output cards can be damaged during attempts at energization. CAUTION: A bell ringer must not be used for wiring checks; use an ohmmeter or light continuity checker. CAUTION: Before removing any of the cards in the 17FL375 electronics panel, turn battery power to the control system OFF.
The control equipment circuitry is classified in two major categories: main power circuit and alternator field control. Both circuit categories must be separately prepared for meggering.

NOTE: Do not put shorting wire on terminal boards.

6.2.1. Preparation For Megger Test


Perform the following procedures to prepare the circuit categories for meggering by either removing wiring connections, insulating or jumpering, as indicated by the instructions. Use shorting wire for jumpering procedures, however, be careful not to short devices to ground or to the wrong devices. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Place both Inverter Cutout switches, located inside the main control cabinet, in the CUTOUT (down) position. Ensure that the Parking Brake is applied (propulsion system commanded to REST mode). Place the GF Cutout switch, located inside the main control cabinet, in the CUTOUT (down) position. Disconnect Battery Power. Disconnect the round power plug from the top of each phase and chopper module: PM1A+, PM1A, PM1B+, PM1B, PM1C+, PM1C, PM2A+, PM2A, PM2B+, PM2B, PM2C+, PM2C, CM1, CM2 6. 7. 8. Disconnect all 17FL375panel 104 pin connectors. Install a jumper between the positive and negative DC link bus bars in the control cabinet. Disconnect the CCLR1 and CCLR2 connectors which are located on the power cabinet ceiling above the AFSE panel. Disconnect the circular connectors from all VAMs.

9.

10. Remove all wires from ground block GNDB which is located to the left of the AFSE. 11. Remove the GF contactor arc chute and install a jumper between the main contactor tips on GF.

6.2.2. Megger Test Procedure


CAUTION: To prevent equipment damage, use a 1500 V DC max. @ 2 mA max. megger only.

6.2.2.1.
1. 2.

Main Power Circuit

Install a jumper from the GF main contactor tip to ground. Connect a megger between the power circuit DC positive bus bar and ground. Turn on the megger and test at 1500 V DC max. The reading should be approximately one megohm. Turn off and disconnect the megger.

3.

6.2.2.2.
1. 2. 3.

Alternator Field Circuit

Remove the jumper from the GF main contactor tip to ground. Install a jumper from the power circuit DC positive bus bar to ground. Connect a megger between the GF main contactor tip and ground. Turn on the megger and test at 1500 V DC max. The reading should be infinity. Turn off and disconnect the megger.

4.

This concludes the megger test. If any readings were below one megohm, an insulation fault is present and must be located and repaired. If the reading is low because of moisture, the machine must be dried out by heating it for several hours. Heat can be applied using several methods: 1) heat lamp, 2) hair dryer, 3) passing a controlled current through the winding for a specific time period, 4) removing the machine from the truck and baking it in an oven at a controlled temperature for a specific time period. After repairs are made, remegger that circuit to ensure a good quality repair. To aid in finding a fault, see Section 6.3., Troubleshooting For Grounds.

6.2.3. Restore Circuitry


If no faults were found, remove shorting wires and reconnect all wires and cables previously disconnected for this test as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Remove the jumper wire between the GF contactor tips and reinstall the GF contactor arc chute. Remove the jumper wire from the power circuit DC positive bus bar to ground. Remove the jumper wire between the positive and negative DC link bus bars. Reconnect all wires previously removed from ground block GNDB. Reconnect the VAM connectors. Reconnect the CCLR1 and CCLR2 connectors. Reconnect all 17FL375 panel connectors. Reconnect the power plug to all phase and chopper modules. Reconnect Battery Power. 49

TROUBLESHOOTING FOR GROUNDS


Give the truck a quick visual inspection looking for the following: a. IMoisture, oil, or debris in or on motorized wheels, alternator, grid resistors, main control cabinet, and power cables b. Any wire or metal that might be touching exposed connections c. IFrayed or rubbing cables

2.

If the visual inspection does not locate the cause, follow the megger procedures to isolate the ground to one of the three major loops. Once the ground has been isolated to a particular loop, that loop should be broken down into smaller sections and remeggered.

3.

NOTE: Refer to the overall system schematic to obtain the most convenient points for subsection isolation. NOTE: This subdividing of the grounded section should continue until the ground is isolated in a particular cable or piece of equipment. Appropriate measures can then be taken.
4. If the ground occurs in a motorized wheel or alternator, the unit should be checked by removing all connections and remeggering. Perform a vigorous inspection of the unit following the guidelines of the inspection made in step 1. If no reason for the ground can be determined, or if the problem cannot be corrected, removal of the unit for repair at an authorized shop will be necessary. If the ground is isolated to the Dynamic Retarding Assembly, disconnect all cables leading to it and remegger the Dynamic Retarding Assembly. If the ground is still present, thoroughly inspect the Dynamic Retarding Assembly for any obvious problems such as frayed or rubbing cables and water or debris inside the Dynamic Retarding Assembly. If the inspection does not locate the cause, isolate the two halves of the Dynamic Retarding Assembly and remegger to localize the ground to one side or the other.

5. 6.

7.

8.

9.

10. On trucks equipped with a blown Dynamic Retarding Assembly, if the ground occurs on the blower motor side, disconnect the motor and check for grounds in the unit once again. 11. If the ground is still present in the Dynamic Retarding Assembly, it will be necessary to disconnect each resistor section until the grounded section is found.

6.19. INVERTER LOAD TEST


WARNING: The inverter load test involves developing torque on the individual wheel motors at standstill. A location allowing for some movement of the truck is required. Personnel must stay clear of the front and rear of the truck when an inverter is providing power to a wheel motor in order to avoid the risk of injury, and possibly death, due to truck movement. The truck cab must be manned at all times, or a means must be provided to stop the truck should motion occur when an inverter is providing power to a wheel motor.
1. Shutdown the engine and ensure the following in preparation for this test, correcting any problems before proceeding further: a. The braking system is functional. b. The wheel motors are clear for rotation and personnel are aware that wheels will be rotating one at a time. c. If tires are not installed, verify that the truck is solidly mounted on jack stands and that the truck is stable. 2. Connect the PTU to the PSC serial port (located in the operator cab), start the GE OHV wPTUt Toolbox, enter password, select PSC Panel, select appropriate truck type, and click on LOGIN to wPTUt Toolbox . From the window browser, select PTU Screens > PSC > Normal_Operation > Real_Time > PSC Real Time Data (Fig. 38). The PSC Real Time Data screen is now displayed (Fig. 40).

CAUTION: Do not accelerate the wheel motors if the truck is on jack stands.
8. Place the Direction Selector switch in the FORWARD position and verify that the truck moves forward if wheels and tires are installed on the truck. If the truck is on jack stands due to the absence of tires and/or wheels, view the left wheel motor. It should rotate in a counter clockwise direction when viewed from the transmission end. The right wheel motor should not be rotating. If the truck movement or the wheel rotation is incorrect, stop the truck, stop the engine and correct the problem before proceeding. 9. Record the following readings on the PSC Real Time Data screen: a. Record the torque command and feedback values for Inverter #1 (TQCMD1 and TRQFB1 ). The minimum torque command should be around 750 ftlbs. Note any significant differences. b. Record both Inverter #1 (I1LV) and Inverter #2 (I2LV) link voltages. They should be approximately the same with a maximum allowable difference of 7 V. The DC link volts should be approximately 700 V and the DC link amps should be less than 50 amps. 76

VTI For 150 Ton AC OHV Propulsion Systems, GET6869

10. Place the Direction Selector switch in the NEUTRAL position. 11. Apply the Parking Brake (propulsion system commanded to REST mode).

NOTE: All LEDs, the Inverter #1 cutout switch and the Inverter #2 cutout switch are not present in the 17KG527B1 (or later) configuration of the 150 Ton AC control group.
12. Repeat steps 5 through 10 for Inverter #2 (with Inverter #2 Cutout switch in NORMAL position and Inverter #1 Cutout switch in CUTOUT position in step 5), noting that if wheel rotation must be monitored, the right wheel should be rotating clockwise when viewed from the transmission end and the left wheel should not be rotating. 13. Apply the Parking Brake (propulsion system commanded to REST mode), move both Inverter Cutout switches to the NORMAL (up) position, then release the Parking Brake (propulsion system exits REST mode). 14. If wheels and tires are installed, verify that truck moves forward in a smooth manner. Stop the truck and move Direction Selector switch to REVERSE. Again verify that truck moves in reverse in a smooth manner. If wheels and/or tires are not installed, verify that the wheel motors rotate in an even manner and that the following wheel motor rotations as viewed from the transmission side are correct: a. Direction Selector switch in FORWARD (1) Left wheel motor counter clockwise rotation (2) Right wheel motor clockwise rotation b. Direction Selector switch in REVERSE (1) Left wheel motor clockwise rotation (2) Right wheel motor counter clockwise rotation

NOTE: If problems are encountered during this testing, check the wheel motor speed sensors, the speed sensor wiring, wheel motor power cabling, and the inverter control card for problems.
15. When inverter testing is complete, move the Direction Selector switch to the NEUTRAL position, apply the Parking Brake (propulsion system commanded to REST mode), move both Inverter Cutout switches to the CUTOUT (down) position, and shut down the engine.

6.20. FUNCTIONAL GROUND FAULT DETECTION TEST


This is a test procedure to ensure that the ground fault detection circuit is operational by placing a test wire jumper from the propulsion system section of interest to truck frame ground. It is expected that ground faults will be detected by the control system during this test.

WARNING: When installing or removing the test wire jumper for ground fault detection checking, always ensure that the truck is shut down, the engine is stopped, the Parking Brake is ON (propulsion system commanded to REST mode), and ALL DC link voltage indicating lights are OFF. Auxiliary DC link charged indicating lights are provided on the top of the control for visual indication. It is recommended that the auxiliary DC link be measured by separate instrumentation as well before proceeding with maintenance or trouble shooting. Failure to do so may result in personnel injury or death.
If, for any reason, this test encounters ground fault detection problems (fails to detect entered fault), immediately stop any further testing and correct the problem. Each time a ground fault is detected, a ground fault event is logged in the event summary log and propulsion power will be removed by the control system. Prior to removing the wire jumper, ensure that the truck is shut down, the engine is stopped, the Parking Brake is applied (propulsion system commanded to REST mode), and all DC link voltage indicating lights are OFF. With the jumper removed, the ground faults can be cleared and erased before proceeding further with the test. The following circuits in the propulsion system should be checked by connecting one lead of the ground fault test wire jumper to it and the other end to truck frame ground: 1. 2. Positive DC link bus Negative DC link bus

7. STATISTICAL DATA

7.1.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND DEFINITION

The Statistical Data Collector uses Parameter Counters and Parameter Profiles to record operating conditions for various occurrences on the truck. To make data most useful, there are four counters for every Statistical Counter and five for every Statistical Profile. These counts are named by the method used to reset the count to zero. For the counter, there is a lifetime count, LCount , which is associated with its date, LCount Start. There are also three other counters, Last Qtr, This Qtr, and This Day. A parameter is a defined occurrence. Each parameter has an identification number called Par #, and a short name called Description . Each parameter is an occurrence that is counted in some unit such as hours or the number of times the conditions have been correct to declare that the occurrence happened. The units in which the counters count are listed under Units in TABLE 3, Statistical Data Codes Counters (located in this section). TABLE 3 also contains an additional explanation of the conditions that define a statistical parameter as having occurred in the column titled Count Conditions. There are two types of parameters: Counters (TABLE 3) and Profiles (TABLE 4, Statistical Data Codes Profiles, located in this section). The profile parameters have one more characteristic, Counter Range, identified by Profile Number, which segments the possible range of values into a maximum of 17 ranges of values. The number or count within a particular Counter Range or Profile Number is the time that the parameter had a value that was within that range. When examining the number of counts for a parameter, it is often useful to know over what period of time the counts occurred. To aid in determining how long it took to get a certain number of counts for a Statistical Data Counter parameter, the Statistical Data is presented in the form of four counters. The first counter, LCount , indicates how many counts have occurred since the LCount Start date. This is intended to be a lifetime counter. It can be reset to zero by a privileged user, and the LCount Start will automatically be set to the date on the CPU board when the user performed the reset. The second counter, Last Qtr is just the total number of counts for the parameter over the lastfiscalquarter, also known as the lastthreemonths. This counter has the same value in it all quarter long. At midnight on a quarter change, this counter is overwritten by the This Qtr value as thisquarter becomes lastquarter. The third counter, This Qtr, keeps a moment by moment count of occurrences of the parameter. The counts are not reset to zero until midnight of the next quarter. The fourth counter, Last Mnth, keeps a moment by moment count of occurrences of the parameter over the last month. This counter has the same value in it all month long. At midnight on a month change, this counter is overwritten by the This Mnth value as thismonth becomes lastmonth. The fifth counter, This Mnth, keeps a moment by moment count of occurrences of the parameter just as This Qtr, except the This Mnth count is reset to zero at midnight of the next month. The sixth counter, Yesterday, keeps a moment by moment count of occurrences of the parameter over the previous day. This counter has the same value in it all day long. At midnight, this counter is overwritten by the This Day value as thisday becomes yesterday. 79

GET6869, VTI For 150 Ton AC OHV Propulsion Systems

FIG. 52. TCI STAT_MENU SELECTIONS. E44371A.


The seventh counter, This Day, keeps a moment by moment count of occurrences of the parameter just as This Qtr, except the This Day count is reset to zero every midnight. If the GE control panel is shut off before midnight, any necessary resetting of counters is done when the panel next powers up after midnight. Whenever the truck is programmed, that is, whenever the CPU Card has the contents of the flash proms changed, the LCount , Last Qtr, and This Qtr counts are not changed. However, the This Day count will be reset to zero.

The DID panel (17FM558) indicates the operating condition of the truck and is a primary troubleshooting aid for maintenance and service personnel. The AC OHV propulsion system utilizes the message lines and the function keys on the DID panel (Fig. 61). The message lines provide propulsion system operating information, test status information, and function key label information, depending upon the DID panels mode of display. The function keys assume different functionality depending upon the DID panels mode of display.

8.1.

MODES DISPLAY

This is the Normal display when there are no active faults and no AC OHV propulsion system tests have been commanded through the DID panel (Fig. 62). The display will indicate one of the following modes of operation: 1. REST The Parking Brake is applied and both the AC OHV propulsion system and the truck are in the appropriate condition for the REST mode to be active. TEST The AC OHV propulsion system is in a selftest mode of operation. READY The AC OHV propulsion system is ready for powering. PROPEL The AC OHV propulsion system is powered up and the Direction Selector switch is either in FORWARD or REVERSE. RETARD The AC OHV propulsion system is powered up and retard effort is commanded either from the retard pedal or retard speed control.

10. SPECIAL OPERATIONS AND TESTS

10.1. WELDING ON THE TRUCK


When welding on trucks equipped with GE control panels, connect the welders ground cable such that welding current does not flow through the trucks control wires or cables. This ground connection should be made directly to (or as close as possible to) the part being welded. For example, if welding is being done on the deck, connect the ground directly to the deck not to the control box or cab. If welding is being done on the control box door, connect the ground to the control box door not to the box frame. Extreme care should also be taken to prevent electrical current from passing through bearings in the alternator or motorized wheel motors as this will result in bearing damage and premature bearing failure. DO NOT pull any control cards or remove panel connectors. This practice can cause more damage than it prevents. It puts unnecessary cycles on the connector pins and may cause loose or dirty pins which could result in a control system failure.

10.2. MOVING TRUCK WITH ONE WHEEL MOTOR


WARNING: The following procedure is intended for use under emergency or unusual conditions only and should not be used in lieu of proper troubleshooting and/or maintenance procedures. In any case, extreme caution must be exercised and all standard safety procedures employed. When using this special procedure, the entire procedure should be read before proceeding.
The following procedure should be followed when it has been determined that either one inverter or one wheel motor is faulty, and the truck must be moved for servicing using the single, operational inverter/wheel motor.

NOTE: Truck speed is limited to 10 mph by the propulsion system when operating with only one wheel motor.
1. With truck stopped and the engine running, apply the Parking Brake (propulsion system commanded to REST mode) and place the Direction Selector handle in the NEUTRAL position.

CAUTION: Single inverter/wheel motor operation of the truck should only be done with an empty truck. Operation of a loaded truck with one inverter/wheel motor may result in damage to that wheel motor.
2. 3. Remove the load, if present, from the truck. On the right side of the main control cabinet, move the affected inverter cutout switch to the CUTOUT position. This will disable that inverter/wheel motor combination from either accelerating or retarding the truck. Release the Parking Brake (propulsion system exits REST mode). Place the Direction Selector handle in FORWARD and move the truck to the desired location.

10.5. LINK CAPACITANCE TEST


The main propulsion DC link capacitance test can be performed through the DID panel (refer to Section 8.3.3., Link Capacitance Testing ) provided that truck conditions permit this test. Those conditions are as follows: 1. 2. Engine running and DC link charged. Truck stopped with no direction commanded and accelerator pedal not pressed.

When the DC link capacitance test is run, the AC OHV propulsion system commands the DC link to be charged to operating level and then it monitors its decay rate from that level. This decay rate is then used to calculate the amount of DC link capacitance. The DC link capacitance test can be monitored and its results viewed on a wPTUt screen. This screen can be accessed as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Connect the wPTUt to the PSC serial port (located in the operator cab), start the GE OHV wPTUt Toolbox, enter password, select PSC Panel, select appropriate truck type, and click on LOGIN to wPTUt Toolbox . From the window browser, select PTU Screens > PSC > Normal_Operation > Tests > Capacitance Test (Fig. 79). The Capacitance Test screen is now displayed and the test data can be viewed (Fig. 80). Close the Capacitance Test display screen by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the screen. Click on the Target button to go back to the GE OHV wPTUt Toolbox Login screen, close the wPTUt Toolbox, shut down the PTU, and disconnect it from the PSC serial port.

11. PHASE MODULE AND GATE DRIVER TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

11.1. INTRODUCTION
WARNING: Traction motor leads and the DC link may have high voltage present from charged capacitors. Remove power and discharge capacitors per standard instructions before troubleshooting the equipment. Auxiliary DC link charged indicating lights are provided on the top of the control for visual indication. It is recommended that the auxiliary DC link be measured by separate instrumentation as well before proceeding with maintenance or troubleshooting. Failure to do so may result in personnel injury or death. WARNING: When troubleshooting this truck, unless stated otherwise the truck engine should be shut down and power removed from the DC link. At 400 RPM engine speed, the DC link is normally commanded to be energized. DO NOT use the REST mode to remove power while troubleshooting any of the truck circuits.
Phase module faults can be either related to the phase module itself or its associated gate driver. The fault text will identify the phase module in question. For example, PM1A+ would refer to phase module (PM) in inverter #1 (1), phase A (A), positive module (+).

11.2. TEST/INSPECTION PROCEDURE


1. Check the wPTUt PSC Real Time Data screen to determine if the inverter involved in the phase module fault is active or not. Run the Inverter VI Test as follows to determine if the fault occurs again: a. Apply the Parking Brake (propulsion system commanded to REST mode) and place the Direction Selector switch in the NEUTRAL position. b. Start and run the engine. c. When the engine has achieved its idle speed, release the Parking Brake (propulsion system exits REST mode). d. Monitor status messages on the wPTUt PSC Real Time Data screen, Inverters section. In the right side of the Inverters section of the screen, Inverter VI Test State is shown. During the Inverter VI Test, the status box should read Test. Upon completion, there should be the message Completed . e. If no faults are logged, and there is no recent history of inverter faults, the truck can be released for service. If faults are logged proceed with the remainder of this troubleshooting section. 3. Shut down the engine but maintain control power to the propulsion control. Go to the phase module in question as identified by the fault, and pull out its gray fiber optic connector. The red LED should be ON.

2.

WARNING: When viewed under some conditions, the optical port may expose the eye beyond the maximum permissible exposure recommended in ANSI z136.2, 1993.
a. If the red LED is ON, the IGBT on the phase module is not shorted. Gate drivers, however, can intermittently fail, therefore, the LED indication does not guarantee that the gate driver is OK. b. If the red LED is OFF, that is usually an indication that the IGBT on the phase module is shorted or the gate driver has failed. 147

GET6869, VTI For 150 Ton AC OHV Propulsion Systems

4.

Check the gate drivers as follows: a. Disconnect the GDPC plug from the gate driver and check for 90 to 100 V AC @ 25 Hz square wave signal at the circular plug. (A Simpson analog meter is recommended for this measurement.) b. Verify that the input power to the GDPC is at least 50 volts at its input terminals. c. If the AC output is less than 90 V AC, unplug all the gate drivers on the inverter in question. Then plug them in one at a time, waiting about five seconds before reading the AC output voltage as each gate driver is plugged in. d. If the output falls below 90 V AC, replace that gate driver. e. Continue to check all the gate drivers for this 90 V AC threshold.

5.

If the gate driver and the IGBT test OK, but the truck has a recent history of repeated failures, replace the phase module. Inspect all laminated bus bars for damage. Use a voltohm meter to check resistance to ground on the DC link circuit. Using that same meter, check for short circuits on the DC link from the positive horizontal bus bar to the negative horizontal bus bar. Inspect all other phase modules for flash burns. Check all phase module fuses for continuity (there are two fuses in parallel per phase module).

12. 17FB144 AND 17FB147 CIRCUIT CARD TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

12.1. INTRODUCTION
Often, 17FB144 and 17FB147 boards used in 150 ton OHV propulsion systems have no defects found when returned to the factory for unit exchange (UX) repair. It is believed that most of the perceived defects are the result of problems communicating to the boards with the PTU, combined with a misunderstanding of the light patterns seen on the bottom edge of the card. This section provides a definition of the light patterns on the card bottom edge and describes a procedure to use Microsoft HyperTerminal to troubleshoot 17FB144 and 17FB147 boards.

12.2. CARD EDGE LIGHTS


There are two LED indicators on the bottom front edge of the boards defined as follows: LED1 / WDTIME Watchdog timer indicator. ON Watchdog Timer timed out. OFF Watchdog Timer not timed out. LED2 / FATL Fail indicator. ON CPU reset or CPU fails its self test or EPROM checksum error. OFF No condition met for ON state. The LED indicators flash during bootup and can flash if no program is installed in the CPU board. LEDs can also flash if the 5 V Power Supply is low. Normally, the CPU board is functional and can be communicated with, or downloaded to, if the LEDs are flashing.

NOTE: If using HyperTerminal while LEDs are flashing, text will be continuously scrolling with a variable time delay between messages.
The FATL indicator can be ON solid if the 5 V Power Supply is low or if there is a major failure of the board. Always check the 5V Power Supply voltage if the FATL indicator is ON solid. Typical LED patterns for Version 19 software are listed in TABLE 6.

12.3. TROUBLESHOOTING PROCEDURE

12.4. USING HYPERTERMINAL TO COMMUNICATE TO 17FB144 AND 17FB147 BOARDS


HyperTerminal is a terminal emulator package that is included in Microsoft Windows 95/98 and 2000. This software package can be used to communicate to either CPU board through the normal PTU connection. It allows access to bootup text that can be used to determine if communications with the CPU are active, the CPU board has passed self tests, whether software has been loaded onto the board, if the software is running (and PTU communication protocol is active), and if any other abnormal situation exists. The CPU board flash memory can also be erased using HyperTerminal. This will subsequently allow PTU downloading of the software in cases where the CPU board is cycling messages and the PTU cannot break in and begin downloading. HyperTerminal is used to break into the bootup routine and then flash memory is erased.

12.4.1.

Pitfalls/Traps When Using HyperTerminal

If having communications problems with the PTU, it is common to close the PTU window and try again. If the window is closed while the PTU is trying to communicate, the COM1 port may not be released by the PTU and HyperTerminal will not be able to connect to it. In this instance, HyperTerminal will generate a message Unable to Open COM1 and the banner at the bottom left hand side of the main window will say Disconnected . Try to reset the COM1 port by disabling it and reenabling it at the window shown in Figure 82. If this does not work, reboot the computer.

Should say this if com port is OK

FIG.82. COM1 SERIAL PORT WINDOW MESSAGE FOR PROPER OPERATION. E44733. NOTE: The banner at the bottom left hand corner of the main window will say Connected and record connection time if the COM1 port is active.
153

GET6869, VTI For 150 Ton AC OHV Propulsion Systems

HyperTerminal saves previous session text (without asking). If it is necessary to verify that the text stored in the HyperTerminal window is from only the present session only, start a new connection. The HyperTerminal screen shows a white background for text that is in the latest window. If the window is scrolled backwards, the background turns light blue. The boarder between the white and light blue background in no way indicates anything about the timing of the text displayed, just that the text contained within the present HyperTerminal connection is more than one window long.

12.4.2.

Accessing HyperTerminal

Before beginning, connect the serial cable to the relevant CPU board serial port and to the COM1 port on the PC. 1. HyperTerminal is located under the Start Menu > Program Files > Accessories > Communications > Hyper Terminal. Then double click on the Hypertrm.exe icon (see Figure 83).

NOTE: HyperTerminal can also be accessed from the wPTUt login window by selecting the Terminal Emulator Mode radio button (Fig 4).
2. The window shown in Figure 84 will appear and ask to name the new connection and pick an icon. If a connection was previously defined, just click Cancel. If defining a new connection, type in the new name, select an icon from those provided, and click OK. The Connect To window shown in Figure 85 will appear. Select Direct to Com1 in the Connect using menu selection and then click OK. The COM1 Properties window shown in Figure 86 will appear. Select the following and then click OK. (Advanced settings do not need to be adjusted): Bits per second = 9600 (Default = 2400) Data bits = 8 (Default) Parity = None (Default) Stop bits = 1 (Default) Flow control = None (Default = Hardware)

FIG. 86. HYPERTERMINAL COM1 PROPERTIES WINDOW. E44737


5. After the COM1 properties are set, the main HyperTerminal window will look like that shown in Figure 87, if HyperTerminal is able to connect to the COM1 port.

NOTE: The lower left hand banner will say Connected and count the connection time. This only indicates that HyperTerminal has access to the COM1 port, NOT that HyperTerminal can talk to the connected CPU board.
6. If HyperTerminal cannot connect to COM1, a message window appears that says Unable to Open COM1 and the banner will say Disconnected as shown in Figure 88. If this happens, try to reset the COM1 port by disabling it and reenabling it at the window previously shown in Figure 82. If this does not work, reboot the computer. Once HyperTerminal is connected to the COM1 port, cycle control power to the connected CPU board. The screen will appear as shown in Figure 89 if the CPU board is already programmed and running. Only the 17FB144 board will show the text line pertaining to the battery test. Figure 89 shows the HyperTerminal main window scrolled backwards 1 line to show the complete text that comes out of the CPU board.

7.

NOTE: The HyperTerminal screen shows a white background for text that is in the latest window. If the window is scrolled backwards, the background turns light blue. The boarder between the white and light blue background in no way indicates anything about the timing of the text displayed, just that the text contained within the present HyperTerminal connection is more than one window long.
8. The screen will appear as shown in Figure 90 if the CPU board is not programmed. Only the 17FB144 board will show the text line pertaining to the battery test.

NOTE: Unit Exchange (UX) cards are not programmed when shipped. NOTE: The following text message will scroll with a variable time delay between cycles if the LED lights on the bottom edge of the CPU board are flashing. Lights may or may not flash if no program is installed in the CPU board.
156

9.

To erase the flash memory (program) on a CPU board, the bootup routine must be interrupted. To do this, hold down the TAB key and cycle control power to the board. Let the TAB key up when you see the Keyboard interrupt accepted message as shown in Figure 91.

10. After the bootup routine has been interrupted, the CPU board flash memory (program) can be erased by typing ef and hitting ENTER. When typing in the ef characters, they will most likely appear somewhere to the far right of the => . This is OK, just type them in and hit ENTER. The message shown in Figure 92 should appear if the flash memory was erased successfully. 11. An open PTU serial communication ground wire with the PTU connected can cause the CPU board bootup (buck) routine to not run during powerup. If this happens, the text in HyperTerminal will stop after the 25MHZ board detected message as shown in Figure 93. 12. When exiting HyperTerminal, it will ask you if you want to save the session. If you click OK, you can select the session name the next time you enter HyperTerminal and you will not have to perform the communications setup.

NOTE: If you do save the session, any text that was in the HyperTerminal window (including that scrolled past the view window) will also be saved.
After the initial save, HyperTerminal saves session text (without asking) every time you close it. If it is necessary to verify that the text stored in the HyperTerminal window is from the present session only, start a new connection.
