Protective functions

Protective functions protect against overload and malfunctions by switching off output voltages of EtherCAT P ports in case of error.

They signal warnings and errors: Warning and error messages

Resetting an error state

If a protective function has signaled an error, you must reset the error state so that the switched-off supply voltages can be switched on again.

  1. Eliminate the cause of the error.
  1. Apply a positive edge to the output variable:
       „DPO Outputs Device“ > „Global Reset“.

Comment: The designation "Reset" refers only to the error state. Parameters and settings remain unchanged.

Further information can be found in the sections "Resetting an error state" in the chapter for the individual protective functions.
