Expansion Card DeviceNet

Usable with S300, S600, S700

General

The expansion card can be used with S300, S600 and S700 (Slot 1).
The (DeviceNet) communication profile follows the ODVA standard Position Controller Device profile.
Device description file (EDS) are available from File Selector, set filter document type to "Fieldbus Support".
The matching manual can be found via the File Selector.

The command OPTION delivers a code for the built-in expansion card.

Front cover

LEDs 

LED "Net Status" is:

Meaning

off

Device is not online.

  • The device has not completed the Dup_MAC_ID test yet.
  • The device may not be powered.
green

The device is operating in a normal condition and the device is online with connections in the established state.

  • The device is allocated to a Master
flashing green The device is operating in a normal condition and the device is online with no connections in the established state.
  • The device has passed the Dup_MAC_ID test, is online, but has no established connections to other nodes.
  • This device is not allocated to a master.
  • Configuration missing, incomplete or incorrect.
flashing red

Recoverable fault and/or one or more I/O Connections are in the
Timed Out state

red
  • The device has an unrecoverable fault; may need replacing.
  • Failed communication device. The device has detected an Error that has rendered it incapable of communicating on the network (e.g. Duplicate MAC ID, or Bus–off).

Setup

Station address

  • Set the rotary switches on the front panel of the option card to a value between 0 and 63. Each switch represents one decimal digit. To set the amplifier to address 10, set the MSD (most significant digit) switch to 1 and the LSD (least significant digit) switch to 0.
  • Set the rotary switches on the front panel of the expansion card to a value greater than 63. The station address can now be set using the ASCII commands DNMACID x, SAVE, COLDSTART where x is the station address.
  • Set the rotary switches on the front panel of the expansion card to a value greater than 63. The station address can now be set through the (DeviceNet)  object (class 0x03, attribute 1). This is typically done through a (DeviceNet) commissioning tool. All drive parameters will be saved to the non-volatile memory when the value is set. The amplifier must be restarted after modifying the address.

Baudrate

  • Set the rotary baudrate switch on the front panel of the option card to a value between 0 and 2. 0=125kbit/s, 1=250kbit/s, 2=500kbit/s.
  • Set the baudrate switch on the front panel of the expansion card to a value greater than 2. The baud rate can now be set using the terminal commands DNBAUD x, SAVE, COLDSTART where x is 125, 250 or 500.
  • Set the baudrate switch on the front panel of the expansion card to a value greater than 2. The baud rate can now be set through the (DeviceNet) object (class 0x03, attribute 2) to a value between 0 and 2. This is typically done through a (DeviceNet)  commissioning tool. All drive parameters will be saved to the non-volatile memory when the value is set. The amplifier must be restarted after modifying the baud rate.
