– Product Identification –
The affected product are Series B TRUSTED I/O modules using module firmware version 4.000, build numbers 201 through 206. The specific module catalog numbers are:
T8402C, T8403C, T8424C, T8425C, T8431C, T8432C, T8433C, T8442C, T8448C, T8449C, T8451C, T8461C, T8471C, T8472C, T8480C.
The module catalog number will be displayed on the carton label and module nameplate. The module catalog number and installed firmware may both be determined using the AADvance 1715 Trusted Collection Tool. Note that the collection tool must be used on a running system.
1. Download and install the latest AADvance 1715 Trusted Collection Tool. The collection tool is available for download from the Rockwell Automation Product Compatibility and Download Center (PCDC) at https://compatibility.rockwellautomation.com/Pages/MultiProductDownload.aspx?crumb=112. In the “search” field, enter “Trusted Collection Tool”. Click the “Downloads” button and follow the instructions to download and install the collection tool. Important – Make sure you are using the most recent version of the data collection tool.
2. Run the tool on an operating system and collect new data, or open an existing data collection log file. If a log file is collected using the latest collection tool, the module build versions will be included in the resultant .CSV file.
3. Once the log file is open, use the “View” menu to open the Module Versions view. For each module in the system, the module catalog number and firmware build number will be listed. The catalog number will be listed without the leading “T” character. For example, a T8461 module will be listed as 8461. The module firmware version will be the build number, which will range from build 201 through 206 for affected modules. The sample log file shown below shows examples of several I/O modules with firmware build 201. Each of these modules would be subject to the actions of this notification.

– Description –
An anomaly exists with TRUSTED I/O Modules. Series B modules may experience nuisance fault indications. Rockwell Automation has investigated reports of two specific nuisance faults that may occur with Series B modules. These faults may occur during start up or during normal operation. In both instances, one or more of the module “HEALTHY” LEDs will flash red, indicating a fault state. These specific faults will not affect normal operation of the system.
Important – Any fault condition must be investigated to differentiate a potential nuisance fault from a true fault. This notification describes conditions where a nuisance fault may be triggered. However, these faults may also indicate a true fault condition. Customers should contact their Rockwell Automation or Sensia account manager, or other place of purchase, for specific fault advice.
Identification of the specific fault condition requires inspection of the diagnostic data. Prior to resetting the module, customers are advised to use the AADvance 1715 Trusted Collection Tool to capture and review the diagnostic logs for specific fault indications. The specific faults described in this notification are codes 0x1050 and 0x1051.
1. As described in the Product Identification section of this document, download and install the AADvance 1715 Trusted Collection Tool from the PCDC.
2. Run the tool on an operating system and collect new data, or open an existing data collection log file. If a log file is collected using the latest collection tool, the module build versions will be included in the resultant .CSV file.
3. Once the log is open, use the “View” menu to open the log file. This opens the raw log data file. Use CTRL-F to open the search window and search for instances of fault codes 0x1050 and 0x1051. Note – Customers familiar with the use of the data collection tool may choose to collect and view the data of a specific module for fault code information.
If you find either of these fault codes, you must follow the instructions in the following sections. If other fault codes are indicated, contact your Rockwell Automation or Sensia account manager, or other place of purchase, for specific fault advice
– Temporary Workarounds –
Pressing the “reset” button will clear a nuisance fault indication, but the fault condition may recur during restart or normal operation. If the fault recurs this indicates a true fault condition and must be investigated. Customers should contact their Rockwell Automation or Sensia account manager, or other place of purchase, for specific fault advice.
– Correction –
Correction requires updating module firmware build 210 or later. Corrected firmware is now available. The following upgrade options are available:
