How to get into the WBMHow to get into the WBM

Establishing a connection to the Web-based Management (WBM):

  • Open a web browser on your computer.
  • In the address field, enter the URL https://<IP-address-of-the-controller>/wbm,
    for example: https://192.168.1.10/wbm.

For further information, see WBM.

Note: The Local bus page is only available for controllers that support local bus modules. In case neither Axioline nor INTERBUS is available and enabled, the Local Bus page is not visible. If a local bus is enabled, the Local Bus page is visible for all user roles.

Local Bus page

On the Local bus page, you can view information on the controller and the connected Axioline local bus or INTERBUS (Inline) modules.

Depending on the connected local bus, the WBM switches automatically to the INTERBUS or Axioline view. If both Axioline and INTERBUS are enabled (e.g. at a PLCnext Control with the AXC F IL ADAPT extension module), the INTERBUS view is activated;  otherwise the Axioline view is activated.

Local Bus (Axioline) view

Local Bus Module List

The module list provides an overview of the configured Axioline devices. The overview contains the module types, their function and location as well as the diagnostic state and code. 

The values shown in the fields Function and Location can be entered in the software PLCnext Engineer for the corresponding module. 

Local bus diagnostics: Possible diagnostic states

Diagnostic state Description
OK Module is running without error.
Warning A warning occurred.
Error A local bus error occurred.

 

Opening the module information view

In the Module Information view, you will find certain general and user-specific information as well as further diagnostic information on the specific module.

  • In the Details column, click on the WBM_details.png button.

The Module Information view opens. 

For further information on the diagnostic states of the module, refer to the module specific documentation.

Diagnostic Registers

In the Diagnostic Registers table you will find the Diagnostic Status Register and the two Diagnostic Parameter Registers.

To decode the error code,  consult the Axioline System Diagnostics manual (UM EN AXL F SYS DIAG) and the device-specific documentation of your module which you'll find it in the download area of your Axioline modules' product page on the Phoenix Contact website. 

Interbus view

Local Bus Module List

The module list provides an overview of the configured INTERBUS devices. The overview contains the Module Description, their Module ID and INTERBUS Identcode as well as the diagnostic state and code. The possible diagnostic states correspond to those of the Axioline view.

Diagnostic Registers

In the Diagnostic Registers table you will find the Diagnostic Status Register and the two Diagnostic Parameter Registers.

To decode the error code,  consult the INTERBUS documentation (IBS SYS DIAG DSC UM E) and device-specific documentation of your module. You will find it in the download area of your product on the Phoenix Contact website.

Note:

In case of peripheral or user errors the diagnostic registers will not be updated after the error has been corrected. The Diagnostic view will show the error message even if the error has been fixed. It is necessary to acknowledge the error message by clicking on the Confirm button. After the error has been fixed and confirmed, the error message in the diagnostic view will disappear.

IO-Link module diagnostic

Available from firmware 2021.0 LTS

The display of diagnostic information of IO-Link devices is supported on the local bus page. The IO-Link master provides the respective diagnostic information of the connected IO-Link devices.
The following IO-Link master modules are supported:

Example with IO-Link master AXL SE IOL4

In the Module Information view, you will find the respective diagnostic information for all IO-Link devices that are connected to the IO-Link master.

  • Click on the details button of the IO-Link master to open a window with detailed information about the module.

Further information

More information about the displayed diagnostic feedback (Consecutive no., priority, channel/group/module, code and text) can be found in :

In addition:

  • Product documentation of the IO-Link master module
  • Product documentation of the IO-link device

You will find those documents it in the Download area of your product.
