The GE Module Genius Controller DS215UCVBG3AF features one Ethernet connector, and multiple LED status indicators. The GE Module Genius Controller DS215UCVBG3AF is also populated with 2 blocks of configuration switches and a connector that enables the attachment to a hard disk drive.
Using the Ethernet connector on the front panel, you can attach the controller to an Ethernet network. This might be a local area network (LAN). Ethernet technology allows the operator to control and monitor many devices connected to the network. The operator can monitor the operation of the controller and all the devices connected to it from a remote location.
One aspect of the controller that can be monitored remotely is the status indicators that are visible on the front panel of the controller. The controller is populated with 6 LEDs. Some of the LEDs provide information useful in troubleshooting while others are useful for monitoring the operation of the controller. For example, the ENET LED is lit when the Ethernet connection is active and functioning normally.
The front panel of the controller also features a Reset button. If you find the controller is not functioning as normal, is functioning at a slower speed, or is having intermittent errors, the first troubleshooting step is to press the Reset button. This clears all processing and clears the memory. It also enables the controller to restart operations without restarting power. It reloads all firmware code and goes through the normal startup procedure. It often resolves problems that occur with the controller.
