Why doesn't a P appear in the S600 display though all software settings are done for the supply with a small DC voltage?

DC supply voltage is smaller than VBUSMIN

Which overcurrent value causes an F22 fault (ground short circuit) with S640 / S670?

F22 occurs in case of approximately 
S640: current peak > 56A 
S670: current peak > 112A

Which overcurrent value causes an F14 fault (short circuit) with S640 / S670?

S640: current peak > 163A 
S670: current peak > 326A

Which firmware is required for S600 with Ethercat?

EtherCAT works from firmware version 6.43. Firmware Versions 7.xx cannot be used.

Which firmware is required for S600 with SynqNet?

SynqNet requires always a special firmware version. Please ask the Kollmorgen Support for this file.

When does the fan run if a fan option card is built-in?

Fan on:
     Heat sink temperature > 65°C or environment temperature > 58°C or brake power > 30 Watts

Fan off:
    Heat sink temperature < 60°C and environment temperature < 55°C and brake power < 20 Watts

What is the life expectancy of the EEPROM?

1 million data saves or 20 years

What is the average lifetime MTBF of the S600?

For the whole S600 family the value is 290,000 hours.

Is it possible to load the current firmware into an old S600 (Ser.No. < 220.000)?

No, the firmware version for S600 with serial number < 220.000 must be < 4.00
