The Allen-Bradley 1766-L32BWA is a part of the MicroLogix 1400 Programmable Logic Controller series. It combines the features of previous MicroLogix 1100 controllers, such as EtherNet/IP, online editing capabilities, and an LCD with enhanced features. It also features a backlight on the LCD for setting network configuration, viewing the controller and I/O status, monitoring, and manipulation. The 1766-L32BWA controller requires 120 to 240 Volt AC input power and has battery-backed RAM. It supports 32 digital I/O points that consist of 12 digital fast 24 Volts DC inputs, 8 digital normal 24 Volt DC inputs, and 12 relay outputs. It can be expanded with up to seven 1762 expansion I/O modules. It has dimensions of 3.5 x 7.08 x 3.43 inches and a weight of 2 pounds.
For communication, the 1766-L32BWA has an isolated RS-232/485 port, an Ethernet port, and a non-isolated RS-232 port. It also has an embedded real-time clock to provide a reference for applications that need time-based control. It is programmed with RSLogix 500/Micro programming software (Version 8.1 and above). For installation, it has Panel or DIN-Rail mounting options with an open enclosure. It is suitable for use in a clean, dry industrial environment with circuits not exceeding Over Voltage Category II. The 1766-L32BWA controller has various enhanced features that its predecessors lack. The Ethernet port provides DNP3 protocol support as well as a web server and email capabilities. It has 2 Serial ports with DH485/DF1/Modbus RTU/DNP3/ASCII protocol support. It has up to 6 embedded 100 kHz high-speed counters (only for DC controllers). It also has 20 KB of memory for user programs and data.

Troubleshooting for 1766-L32BWA
This Micro-Logix processor is capable of controlling 20 inputs and 12 outputs with a built-in 24v DC power supply. This device can be communicated with through either the 9 or 8 pin RS-232 cable as well as via EtherNet. The LCD will display I/O status as well as change processor modes and much more. The 1766-L32BWA is powered by 120-240v AC at 50-60 Hz.
NOTE : Ensure that your program is saved or backed up before ever removing power from a processor.
LCD can malfunction but the processor will still be functional.
Visual inspection of components which may be damaged.
Ensure terminal blocks are screwed in and terminating adequately.
EtherNet port will have a green light illuminated when connected to the network and an orange flickering light when communicating to the network.
No Communications? Unplug the battery and processor for 2-5 min and try again
Check each communications port for visual damage
Ensure communications cable is in operable condition
Check publication for led indicators meaning and LCD controls
Apply power to the processor and test 24v DC out with a voltmeter
Both 8 pin and 9 pin ports will auto-configure in RS-Linx (Driver: RS-323 DF1 devices)
With power off, add the expansion card then power back on to see if the card is seen in I/O configuration
(black lead is 24v com and red lead is 24v positive going to input 0, each input will toggle on the LCD display as well as in the input table of the program)
(in the off state outputs will read OL or 0 depending on the meter, in the on state the output will read a very low ohm reading.)
