I currently have a servo that keeps faulting out.
It is SM3440-D, The rs232 goes into a computer and out to PLC.
VB and the PLC are communicating with the smart motor and I cant seem to connect to the motors to find the error (unless I disconnect the rs232 and plug my laptop into it). Is there a way of monitoring the motor through SMI while everything else is connected and running?

I believe it is a excessive pos error, but till I get it figured out I was going to set up a reset circuit for the motor.
My plan is to use input B and have a reset button. But I am having a hard time with the code.

Will this work
UBI
IF Be==1
UBI
Ze
ENDIF

I'm still new at this, any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Geoff

If you are connecting pin2(PortB) to pin13(GND)... the code would be something like...

UBI
WHILE 1
IF UBI==0
IF Be==1 ZS ENDIF 'ZS Clears all errors IF Be==1 and PortB is grounded.
ENDIF
LOOP

Thank you,

How about my connection/monitoring issues?
Is there a work around for this?

If you have Ports E and F available, you can open up an RS485 port with the OCHN command, but you will need an RS485 port or adapter on your PC to connect with SMI2 software.
