Selection of operation mode and operation location
4.19.6 Start command source and frequency command source during communication
operation (Pr. 338, Pr. 339, Pr. 551)
When the RS-485 communication with the PU connector is used, the external start command and frequency command
can be valid. Command source in the PU operation mode can be selected.
From the communication device, parameter unit, etc. which have command source, parameter write or start command
can be executed. Parameter read or monitoring can be performed in any operation mode.
PU mode operation
The above parameters can be set when Pr. 160 Extended function display selection = "0". (Refer to page 197)
* Pr. 551 is always write-enabled.
Selects the command source of the PU operation mode (Pr. 551)
Any of the operation panel, PU connector can be specified as the command source in the PU operation mode.
In the PU operation mode, set Pr. 551 to "2" when executing parameter write, start command or frequency command
during the RS-485 communication with PU connector.
PU...PU operation mode, NET...Network operation mode, —...without command source
The Modbus-RTU protocol cannot be used in the PU operation mode. When using the Modbus-RTU protocol, set Pr. 551 "2".
When Pr. 551 = "9999", the priorities of the PU control source is parameter unit (FR-PU04/FR-PU07) operation panel.
When performing the RS-485 communication with the PU connector when Pr. 551 = "9999", PU mode command
source does not automatically change to the PU connector.
When Pr. 551 = "2" (PU mode PU connector), the operation mode cannot be switched to the Network operation mode.
Changed setting value is valid when powering ON or resetting the inverter.
The Modbus-RTU protocol cannot be used in the PU operation mode. Select Network operation mode (NET mode
