Selection of encoder feedback control (Pr.367)
• When a value other than "9999" is set in Pr.367 Speed feedback range, encoder feedback control is enabled. Set a target
value (frequency at which stable speed operation is performed) and specify the range around the value. Normally, use the
frequency converted from the slip amount (r/min) at the rated motor speed (rated load). If the setting is too large, response
Speed feedback range
• Example: when the rated speed of a motor (4 poles) is 1740 r/min at 60 Hz
Slip Nsp = Synchronous speed - Rated speed
= 1800 - 1740
= 60 (r/min)
Frequency equivalent to slip (fsp) = Nsp × Number of poles/120
Feedback gain (Pr.368)
• Set Pr.368 Feedback gain when the rotation is unstable or response is slow.
• Response of the feedback will become slow when the acceleration/deceleration time is long. In such case, increase the
setting value of Pr.368.
Pr.368 > 1
1 > Pr.368
Overspeed detection (Pr.285)
• To prevent malfunction when the correct pulse signal cannot be detected from the encoder, when
[detection frequency] - [output frequency] ≥ Pr.285
during encoder feedback control, a protective function (E.MB1) will be activated to shut off the inverter output.
• Overspeed detection is not performed when Pr.285 = "9999".
• Couple the encoder on the same axis as the motor axis without any mechanical clatter, with speed ratio of 1:1.
• Encoder feedback control is not performed during the acceleration and deceleration to prevent unstable operation such as
• Encoder feedback control is performed after the output frequency has reached [set frequency] ± [speed feedback range] once.
• When following status occurs during encoder feedback control operation, the inverter output is not shut off, the output
frequency becomes the value obtained by [set frequency] ± [speed feedback range], and tracking of the motor speed is not
When the pulse signal from the encoder is lost due to a break, etc.
When correct pulse signal cannot be detected due to induction noise, etc.
When the motor is forcefully accelerated (regenerative rotation) or decelerated (motor lock) due to large external force
• Use the Inverter running (RUN) signal when releasing the brake from the motor with a brake. (The brake may not be released
when the Output frequency detection (FU) signal is used.)
• Do not turn OFF the external power supply for the encoder during encoder feedback control. Normal encoder feedback control
will not be possible.
