How to resolve the error "I2C communication error" on the HMIG5U/HMIG5U2?

Published date: 01 August 2019

When powering up the HMIG5U/HMIG5U2, there is an error at the bottom of the screen (when the Schneider Electric logo is displayed) that states "I2C communication error".

Product Line:

The "I2C communication error" appears when the connection from the HMIDT to the HMIG5U/HMIG5U2 is distorted or bad. Check the pins on the back of the HMIDT and the pins on the HMIG5U/HMIG5U2 to ensure there is no rust, corrosion or bent pins.

Removing and reattaching the screen usually resolves this issue.
