Valid for S400, S600


For controlling several servo amplifiers, start the communication with the first amplifier via RS232 and all other amplifiers via the CAN bus. Presumption for that is, that the CAN baud rates are identical and the station addresses of the servo amplifiers are set to different numbers.

Setup must be done with the setup software (Terminal screen) with ASCII commands:

Valid for S300, S400, S600, S700

A speed set point shall be delivered digitally via a bus system. It must be possible to adjust the speed setpoint by an offset voltage with an analog input..


Object 297, scaling turns / 10V for analog input

Settings in the setup software

1: Velocity analog

I/O analog set point function
4: Xsoll = SW1 + SW2

Valid for S600 with Firmware 588dpr174u only

With varying loads coupled to the motor the parameters GV and GP can be switched over very fast by using edge control of digital input 2 and the ASCII command VAR..

The command VAR is used only in the command sequence for digital input 2 for the rising and falling edge.


During execution of VAR the parameters are set dependant on the input polarity.

Application (example)

For an auger the packaging quantity is to be adjusted by a motion task and the control is to be realized simply and user-friendly . The quantity can vary in a defined +/- range.


With a digital input the motion task is started, the motion task selection is done with a framing potentiometer due to the necessary voltage levels.

Indexing via a digital input.

Valid for S600 with FW 5.70 ...5.99, 7.xx

The external Flash card serves as external memory medium for both the S600 firmware and for the amplifier parameter. With its help a firmware-update can be carried out very quickly without additional hardware (e.g. a PC). The Upload/Download commands for the amplifier can be released either with the help of the ASCII command FLASH or by pressing the key S1/S2 at the front plate of the Flash card.

This Application Note explains the general functions and the necessary ASCII commands.
