Does the ECC21 or CM4/CM3 firmware get upgraded first?

Product Line
CM4000
CM3000
ECC21


Environment
Firmware Upgrade

Cause
The order in which to upgrade the ECC21 and the CM4000/CM3000 depends on the firmware version on the CM4000/CM3000.

Resolution
If the CM4000/CM3000's firmware version is 10.203 or greater, then upgrade the ECC21 first, in order to avoid comms loss to the CM4000/CM3000. Error 504 might occur as well when trying to download to the CM4000/CM3000 first. See FA212757 for steps on upgrading the ECC21.

If the firmware version of the CM4000/CM3000 is less than 10.203, then upgrade the CM4000/CM3000 first via the RS485 connection, not through the ECC21. See FA237920 for steps on upgrading the CM4000/CM3000. Once the CM4000/CM3000 is upgraded then upgrade the ECC21. The reason is that the ECC21 was not a function of the CM4000/CM3000's firmware until 10.203.

Can the EGX400 or ECC21 fiber port connect directly to a gigabit (1000 Mb) network?

Issue:
User would like to communicate with an EGX400 or ECC21 using a gigabit (1000 Mb) fiber network
 
Product line:
ECC21, EGX400
 
Cause:
Customer wanted to know if they can directly connect 1000Mb a gigabit) fiber connection to EGX400 or ECC21 fiber port?
 
Resolution:
Customer cannot connect a 1000Mb fiber connection directly to the ECC21 or EGX400.
As per the ECC21 and EGX400 Installation Manuals, the fiber port is compatible with 100Mb networks only.
If gigabit fiber network connections are needed, a 100Mb multi-mode LC fiber converter will be required. 

Alternately, a gigabit fiber switch with 10/100/1000 copper ethernet connections could be used. In this instance, the fiber would be run to the switch and 10/100 ethernet to the EGX or ECC gateway.

Starting Register number in Modbus Read functions

Goals and Symptoms

When performing Modbus read commands, it is important to apply the right starting register address in the read function. Otherwise, the wrong register will be accessed from the meter, giving unexpected data for the meter parameter being read.


  • Meter is functioning as expected. The front panel values for voltages and currents are within expected ranges for the system being monitored. However, modbus read functions from a master station (e.g. a PLC) give values that do not correspond to the front panel values.

Facts and Changes

Modbus, modbus rtu, function read, modbus map, holding register, staring register, function 03, modbus read packet

Causes and Fixes

Cause
One probable cause would be that, the modbus function read command is not pointing to the right registers. The modbus protocol requires an offset to be introduced in the starting register address when reading the slaves register.

Resolution

When reading the meter parameters, the Master must send the device a Read Holding Registers packet. This packet must specify a start register and the number of registers to read. When the function read is received, the slave responds with a packet containing the registers in the range defined in the read request.

However, consider the 3710 Modbus map, which states that according to the MODBUS protocol, in response to a request for address 4xxxx, the master reads register xxxx-1 from the slave (3710). For example, a request for register 40011 returns register 10 from the slave.

What does the above statement mean? Why is an offset required?

Holding registers, by default, are defined the 4xxxx range, the first holding register staring at 40001. The starting register in the read packet is, on the other hand, numbered from zero. Hence, the start register zero automatically points to holding register 40001, starting register one points to holding register 40002, etc. The fact that the first holding register is 40001 and not 40000 explains the offset that needs to be introduced in the starting register number.

Hence, considering the 3710 Modbus Map statement, if the Master needs to read register 40011, then the corresponding starting register that needs to be put in the read function would be 10 (0A hex) since register 40011 is the register 10 from the first holding register, 40001:
40001 > Start register 0
40002 > Start register 1
40003 > Start register 2
40004 > Start register 3
40005 > Start register 4
40006 > Start register 5
40007 > Start register 6
40008 > Start register 7
40009 > Start register 8
40010 > Start register 9
40011 > Start register 10

The Modbus Read Request Packet for a master reading 3 registers from a slave with unit ID 100 (64 Hex) and for starting register of 40011 should be:
 

Slave ID
Function
Start Register (40011)
# of Registers
CRC Checksum
64
03
00
0A
00032C3C


To summarize, when looking at a modbus map, the starting register number to be used in the read function:

Start Register = Modbus Register 40001.

How to perform a soft reboot on an EGX100/200/300/400, PM8ECC or ECC21 card remotely by register writes

Issue
Customer needs to reboot the unit remotely via software, due to the difficulty of being in front of the unit or unable to open to power cycle unit physically. 

Product Line
EGX100
EGX200
EGX300
EGX400
PM8ECC (for PM800 series meters)
ECC21 (for CM4 or CM3 series meters)

Environment
Remotely performing Cycle Power/Soft reset/soft reboot by register writes via a Modbus "Tester" software or some other Modbus TCP/IP program (like Modscan).

Cause 
This soft reset can be useful when experiencing issues on the Ethernet side of communications.

Resolution
*Warning: A soft reset to PM8ECC or ECC21 may cause I/O module relays to de energize on the meter. Alarms may pick up or drop out. 
A soft reset to an Ethernet Gateway (EGX) does not clear any settings. The device basically restarts the internal processes and programs. It only causes the device to disconnect any inbound Ethernet connections and will run through the basic startup procedure. The LED's will flash on and off as if the unit is being powered up. This is not the same thing as a Hard reset which occurs only when power is lost to the unit.

For EGX200, EGX400 and ECC21:
Use the following Modbus Address, Register Number, and Register Command to perform a soft reboot (power reset): 

Modbus Address: 254
Register Number: 8000
Register Command: 32896 (Decimal)
(Use address 254 and write a decimal 32896 to register 8000)

    

For EGX100 , EGX300 and PM8ECC:
Use the following Modbus Address, Register Number, and Register Command to perform a soft reboot (power reset): 

Modbus Address: 254
Register Number: 2800
Register Command: 1110 (Decimal)
(Use address 254 and write a decimal 1110 to register 2800)

Communication loss in the System Manager Software (error 513) for device(s) downstream of a CM4 with an ECC21 card

Goals and Symptoms

Issue
Communications will drop out for devices on the serial port of an ECC card housed in a CM3/4 and come back on the next health check, data upload, or with a communication test (i.e. there is no loss of data). The error with the communication loss is 513 which is defined as"negative acknowledgement"

Causes and Fixes

Cause

This is is generally a wiring issue where someone will have to "ring out" or check the wiring on the daisy chain for continuity; however the problem may be solved by cycling power to the ECC21. An easy way to cycle power to the ECC21 is to do a soft reset to the meter.

Resolution

Perform a soft rest on the meter by enabling an unused data log on the CM3/4. Whenever a change is made to a data log the CM4 reset itself which, in turn, reboots the ECC card. After the initial soft reset, the unused data log can be un-enabled to return the data log to its original state (this will cause another soft reset).

Alternately, a soft reset can be initiated by writing 1110 to register 8000.

NOTE: Since making any changes to a data log clears the data in all of the logs for that meter; do an "execute now" on any tasks that get data from the data logs in the meter before making the changes to the unused data log.

  1. Setup Command Result Pointers:
    • Write 8020 to register 8017
    • Write 8021 to register 8018
    • Write 8022 to register 8019
  2. Write 9020 to register 8000 to open an editing session.
  3. Verify commands:
    • Verify register 8017 reads 9020
    • Verify register 8018 reads 0
  4. Write 7010 to register 8000 to format the DOC
  5. Verify commands:
    • Verify register 8017 reads 7010
    • Verify register 8018 reads 0
  6. Write 1 to register 8001 to save changes.
  7. Write 9021 to register 8000 to close the editing session.This will cause a meter reset and the DOC will be formatted after the meter is reset

Note: After formatting the DOC, all files must be reconfigured using ION Setup or PME.
