Ramp-up of the SIMODRIVE 611 universal drives
When you press the keys "Feed Start" and "Feed Stop" when the machine con-
trol panel powers up (all LEDs flash), the software version of the machine con-
trol panel is displayed.
This means that the system software of the machine control panel has booted
correctly and waits until the cyclic communication is established by the PLC.
Whether the machine control panel on the MPI bus is detected, can be checked
With HMI Advanced, the active nodes at the MPI bus are displayed with
operating area Start-up > MMC > Operator panel > Bus node.
SIMATIC Manager STEP7
The active nodes at the MPI bus are displayed using the SIMATIC Manager
STEP7 by menu command Target system > Display accessible nodes.
The MPI default addresses of the individual components are:
– PLC = 2
– NC = 3
– Machine control panel = 6.
If the machine control panel is displayed as an MPI node with address 6, it has
been detected correctly.
If the machine control panel continues to flash, check the parameterization of
the PLC block FB1, Subsection 5.4.3, page 5-143.
