Using the setup software you can define series of motion tasks. The specials that should be known with the signal Folge_In_Pos and with the used acceleration and brake ramps are shown in these diagrams:

The Profibus protocol does not give any support for synchronizing the start of motion tasks. To start several drives synchronized, it can be useful to define the motion  tasks by fieldbus but start them via a digital input.

Valid for S600

The servo amplifier S600 offers several supervision functions to detect mains phase loss (error F16) and to react upon mains under voltage (error F05). If in multi-axis systems not every amplifier has it's own mains supply connection or if an error message in case of low mains voltage is not appreciated (e.g. with DC direct supply), you must adapt the supervising functions to your needs.

Depending on the current trouble, faults are managed differently (different error levels):

Valid for S400, S600 with FW 6.21...6.99

With operation mode 4 (OPMODE 4, electronic gearing) the axis follows synchronously to a master position. The gearing ratio can be adjusted with GEARI and GEARO.

Valid for S400, S600 mit FW 5.76-5.99, 7.xx

Resolution in the position loop must be set precisely for linear applications or gearing with rotary appliaction to get a simple positioning with SI units.

You can setup the resolution with the setup software

  • S300/700 screen page Units/Mechanical
  • S400/600 screen page Position/ Position Data

Examples for unit selection and resolution related to the application:

Three ASCII commands serve for the password protection. These parameters can be set in the terminal screen of the setup software.

We recommend to use the tool Create_Parameterfile_for_Induction_Motor.xls for basic parameterizing. In most cases a good result can be reached  with this tool.

Should the result be not sufficient, you must set the parameters described below.
