Checking Controller Enclosure Indicators (5300 V3 and 5500 V3)

Checking Controller Enclosure Indicators (5300 V3 and 5500 V3)

Controller enclosure indicators show the running status of a controller enclosure. By checking these indicators, you can quickly learn about the status of each module.

Reference Standard

Controller enclosure indicators are located on the front and rear panels of a controller enclosure.

Figure 9-1, Figure 9-2, and Figure 9-3 depict the front-panel and rear-panel indicators of the controller enclosure that has been correctly powered on.
