Commonly Asked Questions
What are the installation requirements?
- 24VDC, see the user manual for the operating voltage range and other specifications
DeviceNet Network Power
- Ensure the BW4030 is installed on a properly-wired and terminated DeviceNet network
- Ensure the DeviceNet network length is correct for the desired DeviceNet Baud Rate
- Ensure that the BW4030 DeviceNet node address is unique on the network and is set correctly for Master or Slave operation
- Ensure the BW4030 is installed on a properly-wired and segmented Ethernet network
- Ensure that the BW4030 IP address is unique on the network
- Basic Node Commissioning and Settings: You will need BWConfig 2.0 to set the node address and other module-specific settings. The BWConfig 2.0 tool is a Microsoft Windows application that communicates with the BridgeWay device over a USB connection. BWConfig 2.0 is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7, 8.x and 10.

Why is my device showing a “?” in the network view when using RSNetworx for DeviceNet or ACM tools?
I set up the device but don’t see DeviceNet Slave nodes when using RSNetworx or ACM.
- Ensure that there are no warnings or errors displayed by the LEDs or indicated in the status information provided by the BW4030.
- When using the BW4030 as a DeviceNet Master, ensure that you do not set the module to Autobaud and that the slaves are set to Autobaud to ensure they are all at the same baud rate.
- Ensure that DeviceNet Network power is connected.
- Ensure that the DeviceNet (CAN H and CAN L) wiring is connected properly and that termination has been properly applied.
My BW4030 is running and sharing data but indicates one or more slaves are not available.
- Ensure that the DeviceNet Slave node addresses are correct based on your BW4030 Scanlist configuration.
- Ensure that the I/O data size for the DeviceNet Slave devices matches what was configured in your BW4030 Scanlist.
- Ensure that the DeviceNet Slave devices are online with no faults. They should indicate that the BW4030 is connected to them and they are being polled.
- Ensure that the DeviceNet Slave devices are set to autobaud to the BW4030 or that they are set to the same baud rate as the BW4030.
