Calculation method
The required time "Tinv" for inverter communication instruction in units of "ms" is calculated as follows.
"INT(n)" in the calculation formula indicates an integer obtained by truncating decimal places of "n".
■Length of 1 character
In inverter communication, the communication setting is as shown in the following table.
The length of 1 character is as shown in the following expression.
