  • Page 29 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual negative changes to the Pulse Position Input. All edges of A and B are counted, therefore one revolution of a 2048 line encoder will produce an 8192 count change on the Pulse Position Input.
  • Page 30 Operational Overview Pulse Mode Parameters The Pulse Position Input parameter shows the total pulse count received by the drive since the last power-up. The Pulse Position Input, Position Command, Position Feedback Encoder and Position Feedback are initialized to zero on power-up. Only Position Feedback Encoder can be pre- loaded serially with a value after power-up.
  • Page 31: Velocity Mode

    Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual setting will change which direction the motor rotates when the position feedback and position command are counting up. In the default setting the position counts up when the motor shaft rotates clockwise (when viewed from the shaft end). The Encoder Feedback (Position Feedback Encoder) parameter can be pre-loaded serially by setting the Position Feedback Encoder Modbus parameter.

  • Page 34: Torque Mode

    Operational Overview Example 2: Use the Velocity Command Analog as a trim adjustment to the digital Velocity Presets. Velocity Preset #2 is selected with Analog Input at 0, so the Velocity Command Preset and Velocity Command are equal (set to match a conveyor speed). You can use the Analog Input (Velocity Command Analog) as a fine adjust for the Velocity Command to exactly match the conveyor speed.
  • Page 35: Drive Modifiers

    Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual In Torque mode the drive receives an Analog Input which is scaled to the Analog Torque Command by the Full Scale Torque, Analog Input Full Scale, and Analog Input Zero Offset parameters. The equation is: ((AI AZO) FST)
  • Page 36 Operational Overview For example, the + Travel Limit will stop motion only if the motor is moving + but allows - motion to move off the limit switch. Conversely, the - Travel Limit will stop motion only if the motor is moving - but allows + motion to move off the limit switch. If both input functions are active at the same time, no motion in either direction will be possible until at least one of the inputs is released.
  • Page 37 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual In applications with un-counterbalanced vertical loads, you must be careful not to set the controller’s torque command to zero when the upper Travel limit is activated. Setting the controllers analog torque command to zero in this situation will command the axis to move off the limit switch causing the load to drop.

In Pulse mode operation and any Summation mode which uses Pulse mode, the input pulse command frequency is monitored and this calculation is made.
  • Page 40: Current Foldback

    Operational Overview • A positive analog velocity or torque command (i.e., a higher voltage on the (+) differential input than on the (-) input). • A positive direction (+) pulse command. • A positive preset velocity or torque command. Current Foldback Current foldback is used to protect the motor and drive from overload.
  • Page 41 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual Figure 12: RMS Foldback Trip Point (this graph is accurate to ±5 percent) Stall Foldback EN Only Stall Foldback prevents overheating of the Power Stage. It activates in any mode when the motor velocity is 100 RPM or less and the Torque Command causes the current to exceed the stall current threshold for 100 ms or more.
  • Page 42: Shunt Operation

    Operational Overview Shunt Operation The EN-208 and EN-214 drive models have internal shunt control. The Epsilon and EN-204 have an output function to control an external shunt transistor, but no internal shunt transistor or resistor. The E -208 has a 50 ohm, 50 watt internal resistor and the EN-214 has a 33 ohm, 50 watt internal shunt resistor to dissipate regenerative energy generated when braking a motor.

  • Page 201 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual signals are wired correctly and the Motor Encoder Reference Motion parameter is correct. Manually rotate the motor as accurately as you can, CW 20 revolutions. The Position Feedback should increase by exactly 20 revs. If the change has some significant fractional part (20.5 for example) the Motor Encoder Lines Per Revolution parameter is probably wrong.
  • Page 202 User Defined Motors Move to the Analog tab and find the "Analog Input" parameter. Using your simulator adjust the analog command until the value of this parameter is approximately 0 volts. Enable the drive. It should not move. If the drive faults at this point you most likely have a wiring problem (see “Step 1: Motor Wiring”).
  • Page 203 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual Velocity Test Disable the drive. Select Velocity Analog mode and set "Full Scale Velocity" parameter to 12 RPM. Use the simulator to adjust the analog command voltage to 5 volts. Enable the drive. Find the "Velocity Command Analog" parameter on the Status tab. Adjust the analog command until this parameter reads exactly 6 RPM.

  • Page 220: Power Dissipation

    Specifications Power Dissipation In general, the drive power stages are 90 to 95 percent efficient depending on the actual point of the torque speed curve the drive is operating. Logic power losses on the EN drive is 11 W minimum to 21 W depending on external loading such as FM modules and input voltages. Logic power losses on the Epsilon drive are 11 W with normal loads to 15 W with additional loads such as external encoder and low input voltage (<22 VDC on A.P.S.
  • Page 221 Epsilon Eb and EN Drives Reference Manual Power Dissipation Calculation Calculating actual dissipation requirements in an application can help minimize enclosure cooling requirements, especially in multi-axis systems. To calculate dissipation in a specific application, use the following formula for each axis and then total them up. This formula is a generalization and will result in a conservative estimate for power losses.
