– Description –
An anomaly exists with the FLEX 5000™ Safety Digital Output Modules catalog numbers 5094-OB16S, 5094-OB16SXT, 5094-OW4IS, and 5094-OW4ISXT. AOP version 1.02.30 allows for the use of specific configuration settings that may result in momentary output state changes during communications fault and power cycle conditions.
When the AOP configuration of any of the listed modules is set such that the Output State During Program Mode and Output State During Communications Fault Mode is other than the default setting of Off, an output device may experience a momentary change of state during recovery from communications fault or power cycle conditions.
– Temporary Workarounds –
Customers are advised to leave the AOP configuration for Output State During in the default Off states. Specifically, these are Output State During Program Mode = Off and Output Statue During Communications Fault Mode = Off. If you have previously configured your module to use a setting combination other than Off / Off you are advised to reset the settings to Off / Off and download the revised program configuration.
– Correction –
Rockwell Automation is currently investigating this anomaly and expects to release an updated AOP to the Product Compatibility and Download Center (PCDC) that will prevent use of the configuration settings that result in the described condition. Until an update is available, customers are advised to follow the steps in the Temporary Workarounds section of this document.
This Product Safety Advisory will be updated from its Preliminary status when the updated AOP is available.
