Outline of dancer control
• Dancer control is performed by setting "40 to 43" in Pr.128 PID action selection. The main speed command is the speed
command for each operation mode (External, PU, and communication). PID control is performed by the dancer roll position
detection signal, and the control result is added to the main speed command. For the main speed acceleration/deceleration
time, set the acceleration time to Pr.44 Second acceleration/deceleration time and the deceleration time to Pr.45
Second deceleration time.
• Normally, set Pr.7 Acceleration time and Pr.8 Deceleration time to 0 s. When the Pr.7 and Pr.8 settings are large, dancer
control response becomes slow during acceleration/deceleration.
• The Pr.127 PID control automatic switchover frequency setting is enabled. The larger setting value between Pr.7 and
Pr.44 is used as the acceleration time during normal operation. For the deceleration time, the larger setting value between
Pr.8 and Pr.45 is used. (For the details of Pr.127, refer to
• If an automatic restart after instantaneous power failure is activated during dancer control, E.OC or E.OV is likely to occur.
In such case, disable the automatic restart after instantaneous power failure function (Pr.57 = "9999").
