What do the vbOnline LEDs indicate?

The vbOnline device uses a number of status LEDs to indicate the current state of alarms, relays, the communications link and the motherboard itself.

Alarm and relay LEDs are configured using the Ascent software and can be activated automatically when user-specified alarms are triggered.

At the right-hand side of the vbOnline device two LEDs indicate the system's status. The Power LED indicates that power is being supplied; the Status LED flashes continuously to indicate that the device is working.

If you are using a WiFi enabled vbOnline device two additional LEDs will show the WLAN and memory card status. The Mem Card LED flashes whenever data is written to memory. The WLAN LED has
two operating modes:

  • Intermittent flashing indicates that the device is connected to a WiFi network and is sending / receiving network traffic normally.
  • Regular bursts of rapid flashing indicates that the device is searching for a wireless network to connect to. This indicates a problem. The device may be out of range of the WiFi network, or there may be a problem with the WiFi configuration either in the vbOnline device, or on the network.

At the left-hand side of the vbOnline device, four columns of 'traffic light' red/amber/green LEDs indicate the status of the machines being monitored according to the alarms and configuration that has been set up in the Ascent software. Alarm status is indicated automatically by LED color: green = OK (machine is not in alarm), amber = Alert, red = Danger.

Above the alarm 'traffic light' groups are four green LEDs that indicate which of the four output relays have been activated. The relays are single-pole, normally open, with a 5 A current rating. They are intended for activating warning lights, audible alarms or similar. As with the alarm status LEDS, output relays are controlled by messages from the PC.

Two bi-color LEDs built into the front of the Ethernet cable RJ-45 connector indicate what type of communications link has been automatically selected.

Note: The left or right LEDs blink when the communication link is
