Short Description Number of Motor Poles


The number of motor poles per turn of the motor.
MPOLES = 0 is not saved into the drive. The setting MPOLES =0 is also not monitored in the MMI.

Linear Motors:
The standard setting for linear motors is MPOLES = 2.
An exception is if enclines is not an integer value for the pole pitch distance (MPITCH). In this case a different value for enclines and MPOLES is required. Contact our technical support.
