Failsafe system which uses the inverter

When a fault is detected by the protective function, the protective function activates and outputs a fault signal. However, a
fault signal may not be output at an inverter's fault occurrence when the detection circuit or output circuit fails, etc. Although
Mitsubishi assures the best quality products, provide an interlock which uses inverter status output signals to prevent
accidents such as damage to the machine when the inverter fails for some reason. Also at the same time consider the system
configuration where a failsafe from outside the inverter, without using the inverter, is enabled even if the inverter fails.
Interlock method which uses the inverter status output signals
By combining the inverter output signals to provide an interlock as shown below, an inverter failure can be detected.

(a) Checking by the output of the inverter fault signal
When the inverter's protective function activates and the
inverter trips, the Fault (ALM) signal is output. (The ALM
signal is assigned to terminal A1B1C1 in the initial
setting).
With this signal, check that the inverter operates
properly.
In addition, negative logic can be set. (ON when the
inverter is normal, OFF when the fault occurs.)
(b) Checking the inverter operating status by the inverter
operation ready completion signal
The Operation ready (RY) signal is output when the
inverter power is ON and the inverter becomes
operative.
Check if the RY signal is output after powering ON the
inverter.
(c) Checking the inverter operating status by the start signal
input to the inverter and inverter running signal
The Inverter running (RUN) signal is output when the
inverter is running. (The RUN signal is assigned to
terminal RUN in the initial setting.)
Check if the Y12 signal is being output while inputting a
start signal to the inverter. (The STF signal is a forward
rotation signal, and the STR signal is a reverse rotation
signal.) Even after the start signal is turned OFF, the
RUN signal is kept output until the inverter makes the
motor to decelerate and to stop. For the logic check,
configure a sequence considering the inverter's
deceleration time.
Check method
Operation check of an alarm contact.
Circuit error detection by negative logic.
Operation ready signal check.
Logic check of the start signal and running signal.
Logic check of the start signal and output current.
