Communication operation and setting
Signal loss detection (Pr.122)
If a signal loss (communication stop) is detected between the inverter and master as a result of a signal loss detection, a
communication fault (E.PUE) occurs and the inverter trips. (as set in Pr. 502).
When the setting is "9999", communication check (signal loss detection) is not made.
When the setting value is "0" (initial value), RS-485 communication can be made. However, a communication fault
(E.PUE) occurs as soon as the inverter is switched to the operation mode (Network operation mode in the initial setting)
with the command source.
A signal loss detection is made when the setting is any of "0.1s to 999.8s". To make a signal loss detection, it is necessary
to send data (refer to Mitsubishi inverter protocol control code (page 222), Modbus-RTU communication protocol (page
233)) from the computer within the communication check time interval. (The inverter makes communication check
(clearing of communication check counter) regardless of the station number setting of the data sent from the master).
Communication check is made from the first communication in the operation mode with command source valid (Network
operation mode in the initial setting).
Example: PU connector communication, Pr. 122 = "0.1 to 999.8s"
Always set the communication check time interval before starting operation to prevent hazardous conditions.
Data communication is not started automatically but is made only once when the computer provides a
communication request. If communication is disabled during operation due to signal cable breakage etc., the
inverter cannot be stopped. When the communication check time interval has elapsed, the inverter trips
The inverter can be coasted to a stop by turning ON its RES signal or by switching power OFF.
If communication is broken due to signal cable breakage, computer fault, etc. the inverter does not detect
such a fault. This should be fully noted.
