Main circuit capacitor life display (Pr. 258, Pr. 259)
The deterioration degree of the control circuit capacitor is displayed in Pr. 258 as a life.
On the assumption that the main circuit capacitor capacitance at factory shipment is 100%, the capacitor life is displayed
in Pr. 258 every time measurement is made.
When the measured value falls to or below 85%, Pr. 255 bit 1 is turned ON and also an alarm is output to the Y90 signal.
Measure the capacitor capacity according to the following procedure and check the deterioration level of the capacitor
1) Check that the motor is connected and at a stop.
2) Set "1" (measuring start) in Pr. 259.
3) Switch power OFF. The inverter applies DC voltage to the motor to measure the capacitor capacity when the inverter
4) After confirming that the LED of the operation panel is OFF, power ON again.
5) Check that "3" (measuring completion) is set in Pr. 259, read Pr. 258, and check the deterioration degree of the main
When the main circuit capacitor life is measured under the following conditions, "forced end" (Pr. 259 = "8") or "measuring error"
(Pr. 259 ="9") occurs or it remains in "measuring start" (Pr. 259 = "1"). Therefore, do not measure in such case.
In addition, even when "measurement completion" (Pr. 259 = "3") is confirmed under the following conditions, normal
measurement can not be done.
(a)FR-HC2 or FR-CV is connected.
(b)DC power supply is connected to the terminal P/+ and N/-.
(c)The power supply switched ON during measurement.
(d)The motor is not connected to the inverter.
(e)The motor is running (coasting)
(f)The motor capacity is two rank smaller as compared to the inverter capacity.
(g)The inverter is tripped or a fault occurred when power is OFF.
(h)The inverter output is shut off with the MRS signal.
(i)The start command is given while measuring.
(j)The parameter unit (FR-PU04/FR-PU07) is connected.
(k)Use terminal PC as power supply.
(l)I/O terminal of the control terminal block is ON (continuity).
Turning the power ON during measuring before LED of the operation panel turns OFF, it may remain in "measuring" (Pr. 259 =
"2") status. In such case, carry out operation from step 2.
For accurate life measurement of the main circuit capacitor, wait 3 hours or longer after turning OFF. The
temperature left in the main circuit capacitor affects measurement.
When measuring the main circuit capacitor capacity (Pr. 259 Main circuit capacitor life measuring = "1"), the DC
voltage is applied to the motor for 1s at powering OFF. Never touch the motor terminal, etc. right after
powering OFF to prevent an electric shock.
Cooling fan life display
The cooling fan speed of 50% or less is detected and "FN" is displayed on the operation panel and parameter unit (FR-
PU04/FR-PU07). As an alarm display, Pr. 255 bit2 is turned ON and also an alarm is output to the Y90 signal.
When the inverter is mounted with two or more cooling fans, "FN" is displayed with one or more fans with speed of 50% or less.
For replacement of each part, contact the nearest Mitsubishi FA center.
Measurement starts when the power
supply is switched OFF.
