The PanelView (PV) Plus 400 terminals by Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Automation provide advanced tools and capabilities for gaining exceptional control over industrial processes and machinery. These HMI (Human Machine Interface) devices are built for AC or DC operation, offering a level of flexibility that is often needed for industrial applications. The supported voltage ranges are 85 to 264 Volts AC and 18 to 30 Volts DC. The PV Plus 400 series are available with grayscale and color displays, and they feature base-configured units along with communication modules. The greyscale display has a diagonal measurement of 3.8 inches (96.5 millimeters) while the color version has a measurement of 3.5 inches (88.8 millimeters). Both versions have a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. Also, the PV Plus 400 series provides 2 input options which are a keypad and a combination of a keypad and touchscreen. The analog-resistive touchscreen control option increases user-friendliness and it is designed for bare hand or gloved hand operation. Optimally, the touchscreen should be used with a 1.3-millimeter plastic stylus. 


The keypad of PV Plus 400 terminals has 8 programmable function keys, a numeric keypad, and navigation keys. The base unit of the PV Plus 400 terminals come equipped with RS-232 ports, USB ports, Ethernet ports, and modular communications interfaces. The base unit has only an RS-232 port and a USB port. Besides this, the PV Plus 400 terminals have a slot for a very convenient CompactFlash memory card. One of the main advantages of these devices is their capability to communicate through the DH-485, DH+, ControlNet, or isolated RS-232 networks. The modular design of these terminals allows the communication module to be installed on the backside of a device. The PV Plus 400 terminals come with power terminal blocks and 8 mounting levers. Besides that, the terminals have the preloaded and installed FactoryTalk View ME (Machine Edition) software package and similar panel cutouts as the terminals from the PV Standard 550 series.

The Allen-Bradley PanelView 300 Operator Terminals have monochrome displays for monitoring and controlling machines in various commercial and industrial applications. The width x height x depth dimensions of each unit are 5.53 x 7.6 x 3.21 inches. They are available in 24 Volts DC input power ratings and each terminal has 8 (F1 to F8) customizable function keys, 4 cursor keys, and 10 numeric entry keys. The PanelView 300 graphics operator interfaces can communicate with programmable logic controllers in the ControlLogix family through the DH-485, RS-232 (DH-4H5), DeviceNet, and RS-232 (DF1) communication options that are available with different terminals in the series.


An additional RS-232 printer port is available with some versions of the Allen-Bradley PanelView 300 operator terminals. These devices are designed for panel-mounting or enclosure-mounting applications in non-hazardous locations. Their enclosure ratings include the NEMA Type 12/13 and NEMA 4X ratings for indoor applications. Self-locking nuts are incorporated into the design of these terminals to allow for quick and easy installation. Their maximum operating temperature rating is 135 degrees Celsius. Apart from the custom legend kits available for all versions of the PanelView 300 terminals, Series B and later terminal editions support the use of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) labels. A sealing gasket for sealing the terminals to the panels or an enclosure ships with each unit. Apart from the display unit, 2 light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on the terminals provide information about the system. The green indicator LED lights up when the terminal is communicating with another device and the red LED indicates when a fault occurs.

Troubleshooting Your PanelView 300

PanelView 300 Startup Failure

If your PanelView 300 fails to startup properly, always check the power supply first. Ensure the terminal is receiving the correct voltage and that the wiring and connections to the power source are valid. In addition, you should also ensure the DC power positive and negative are attached to the proper terminals. 

PanelView 300 Status Indicators 

The status indicators are located on the back of your PanelView 300 terminal.  The COMM indicator is green and reflects communication. The FAULT indicator is red and reflects hardware faults. Upon startup, the fault indicator should be off and the comm indicator on. If the fault indicator flashes a few times at startup, this is not a concern. However, if both indicators are off you should check the power cable. See the table below to interpret the terminal's indicator status:

Status Indicators - DH+, DH-485, DF1

Indicator Status Meaning
