A message is sent to the slave (for instance, the inverter) having the address specified by the
● Normal Response
After the query from the master is received, the slave executes the request function, and returns
the corresponding normal response to the master.
● Error Response
When an invalid function code, address or data is received by the slave, the error response is
returned to the master.
This response is appended with an error code that indicates the reason why the request from the
master could not be executed.
This response cannot be returned for errors, detected by the hardware, frame error and CRC check
The master can broadcast messages to all slaves by specifying address 0. All slaves that receive a
message from the master execute the requested function. With this type of communication, slaves
do not return a response to the master.
During broadcast communication, functions are executed regarded of the set inverter station
number (Pr. 331).
Message frame (protocol)
● Communication method
Basically, the master sends a Query message (question), and slaves return the Response message
(response). At normal communication, the Device Address and Function Code are copied as they
are, and at erroneous communication (illegal function code or data code), bit7 (= 80 h) of the
Function Code is turned ON, and the error code is set at Data Bytes.
