Onboard LEDs can be used to retrieve information on the operational state of the drive. Even if the LEDs are hidden from sight in the final application, their inclusion still provides valuable visual help during the development stage and troubleshooting or debugging afterward.
The following diagram represents the physical location of each LED on the TOP side of the proposed design.
EtherCAT Port 1 (output) link LED
Ethernet Port 1 link LED
FAULT (Drive status)
Bi-Color (only 1 used)
(Green, unused) / Red
Drive FAULT State
LED is on when an error event has occurred and the drive is trapped in the Fault state.
RUN/ERROR (Network status)
(Behaviour differs from EtherCAT drives to CANopen drives).
Green / Red
EtherCAT Status (ECAT Status) or CANopen status
EtherCAT Port 0 (input) link LED.
Ethernet Port 0 link LED (only Everest NET)
