Modbus registers are listed along with instructions on how to implement them within the application notes for each drive: Please contact Anacon Systems for additional information and Application Notes.
Can Earth Leakage Circuit Breakers be used with Optidrives?
Yes, with the following provisions:- A Type B device must be used An individual ELCB must be fitted for each Optidrive The ELCB should be sui for protection where the leakage current contains a DC component The trip level should be at least 30mA. The actual leakage current depends on the nature of the installation, the motor cable type and …
Are options such as the 2ROUT and HVACO compatible with E2 / E3 IP66 drives?
IP66 Optidrives are electrically identical to their IP20 counterparts, and hence all options compatible with IP20 Optidrives are also compatible with the corresponding IP55 Optidrive. Options such as the 2ROUT card will install under the front cover of IP66 drives, maintaining the IP66 protection of the drive.
Can I connect more than one motor to the output of an Optidrive?
Yes, with the following rules: For Optidrive P2, the drive must be operated in V/F Mode only. Each motor should be protected by an individual thermal overload. The total cable length limit for the Optidrive shown in the relevant User Guide should not be exceeded. An Output filter is recommended in all cases, and allows the maximum permissible motor cable …
My drive shows a fault on the display how do I solve this problem?
All fault codes that are shown on the display of the drive are listed in the relevant User Guide for the productconcerned. Additionally we have a Troubleshooting guide linked to this FAQ for further assistance. Please contact Anacon Systems for additional information and Application Notes.
How do I calculate the MODBUS RTU Checksum value?
The checksum is generated by the PLC automatically and independent to the drive. The calculation process is explained on the Modbus website, www.modbus.org
When using Optistick I see Drive display codes that are not in the User Guide, what are they?
A list of additional display messages that can be displayed on the drive when using Optistick is attached.
What are the Under Voltage, Over Voltage and Brake Chopper voltages on the Optidrive Product Ranges?
These voltages will be listed in the relevant product Advanced User Guide. In general, the values are very similar for each different product range.
Can I configure an Optidrive for Fast Ramp / Fast Stop in addition to the normal deceleration rate?
Yes, all Optidrive products have a 2nd Deceleration or “Fast Stop” ramp. This ramp can be activated via a digital input reference on the drive control terminals or when mains power input is removed from the drive. When triggered by a digital input the fast ramp function is to Active (fail Safe) operation. Refer to the individual operating instructions for …
Can I display speed in RPM on my Optidrive?
Yes, The Optidrive allows all speed related parameters to be displayed in RPM instead of Hz. By setting the value of the ‘Motor rated Speed’ parameter to the motor rated speed in RPM, the Optidrive will display the motor speed and the speed related parameters in RPM. When this parameter is set to zero, the speed of the motor will …
