    CONFIGURING SPEED CONTROL METHOD Detroit Hoist VFD controls come factory pre-configured for 2-Step speed control unless otherwise specified during the ordering process. Use the chart below to configure the speed control method that is required. Speed Control Method Parameters Values 2-Step P108 2-Step Infinitely Variable...
  • Page 8: Configuring Speeds / Frequencies

    CONFIGURING SPEEDS / FREQUENCIES Speed / frequency values are stored as whole numbers (example is 15.25 Hz = 1525). Use the chart below to configure the speeds / frequencies for the configured speed control method. If operating at frequencies below or at 5hz for an extended amount of time an external motor cooling device may be required to prevent motor overheating.
  • Page 9: Acceleration / Deceleration Times

    ACCELERATION / DECELERATION TIMES Changing the acceleration time to a shorter time can cause a E01, E02, or E03 over-current and or E05 over-load fault /trip, if this occurs due to a short acceleration time increase the acceleration time and test again. Changing the deceleration time to a shorter time can cause a E07 over-voltage fault/trip, if this occurs due to a short deceleration time increase the deceleration time and test again.
  • Page 10: Micro-Speed Function

    MICRO-SPEED FUNCTION Micro-speed is designed to temporarily restrict the speed of the hoist to a lower speed and to prevent high speed operations until the function is released. The micro-speed function can be configured two ways. 2-STEP MAINTAINED MODE – This mode will switch to a 2-Step maintained speed set. This is helpful where the micro-speeds need to be specific.
  • Page 11: Auto-Speed 90Hz Function

    AUTO-SPEED 90HZ FUNCTION The auto-speed function will allow the VFD to increase the high speed to up to 90Hz when there is an empty hook or a light load. You can set this function for automatic or for input activation. The auto-speed function is not available when using 0-10V/4-20mA speed control methods, when micro-speed is active, and or when in tandem mode.
  • Page 12: 125% Field Load Testing / Over-Weight Bypass

    125% FIELD LOAD TESTING / OVER-WEIGHT BYPASS Each hoist is factory load tested prior to shipment. If a field load test is required, you will need to bypass the over-weight signal. To bypass the over-weight signal, locate the bypass terminal knife disconnect it should be labeled “BPS” (use images below as reference) and pull the yellow/orange tab to open.
  • Page 13: Hoist Over-Weight Function

    HOIST OVER-WEIGHT FUNCTION The VFD is setup to use the output current to the motor as the over-weight function. The VFD uses (2) over-weight current parameters. Over-weight (1) is when operating less than or equal to the low-speed frequency and over-weight (2) is when operating above low-speed frequency.
  • Page 14: Setting Hoist Over-Weight

    SETTING HOIST OVER-WEIGHT Each hoist’s over-weight settings will be set at the factory prior to shipment. In some cases, field adjustments may be required. Use the step chart below to set the hoist’s over-weight settings. Step Instruction Locate the terminal knife disconnect labeled “BPS” and pull the top of the yellow/orange tab outwards, this will bypass the over-weight circuit.
  • Page 15: Carrier Frequency

    CARRIER FREQUENCY The carrier frequency is adjustable from 2.0kHz to 15kHz. The audible sound decreases at the higher frequencies, but RFI noise and leakage current may be increased. It is recommended that the carrier frequency is 2.3kHz or greater when operating in sensorless vector A044 = 03.
  • Page 16: Reset Fault Using Input

    RESET FAULT USING INPUT Resetting a fault remotely using an input to the VFD can be done by configuring one of the available digital inputs for reset. Use the chart below. Function Parameters Value Fault reset C006 – C007 18 = RS OUTPUT SIGNAL WHEN FAULT OCCURS You can configure a 24v digital output to turn on when a fault occurs.
  • Page 17: Motor Brake Parameters

    MOTOR BRAKE PARAMETERS The motor brake parameters ca be adjusted based on the application needs. Brake wait time for release – After the Brake Release Frequency Setting is reached, the inverter waits for the braking wait time (b121) Brake wait time for acceleration – The inverter waits for the Brake Wait Time for Acceleration (b122), and then starts accelerating the motor up to the set acceleration frequency.
  • Page 18: Constant Torque Control Mode / Manual Torque Boost

    CONSTANT TORQUE CONTROL MODE / MANUAL TORQUE BOOST Manual Torque Boost – The Constant and Variable Torque algorithms feature an adjustable torque boost curve. When the motor load has a lot of inertia or starting friction, you may need to increase the low frequency starting torque characteristics by boosting the voltage above the normal V/f ratio (shown below).
  • Page 19: Constant Torque Control Mode / Automatic Torque Boost

    CONSTANT TORQUE CONTROL MODE / AUTOMATIC TORQUE BOOST In constant torque using automatic torque boost the starting torque boost value and frequency break point are used as starting points for automatic torque boost. Voltage compensation gain and slip compensation gain are used for fine tuning adjustments. Using parameters A046 and A047, you can obtain better performance under automatic torque boost mode (A041=01).
  • Page 20: Sensorless Vector Control Mode

    SENSORLESS VECTOR CONTROL MODE Sensorless vector control can achieve high torque performance (200% torque at 0.5Hz of output frequency) without motor speed feedback (encoder feedback). Sensorless vector control enables the inverter to accurately operate the motor with a high starting torque, even at low speed.
  • Page 21: Fine Tuning Sensorless Vector

    FINE TUNING SENSORLESS VECTOR In most cases fine tuning is not required with the standard motor constants that are supplied when selecting the correct motor constant profile in parameter H003. Before making adjustments, try selecting a motor constant profile (1) smaller or larger than the combined connected motors in kW’s in parameter H003.
  • Page 22: Auto-Tuning

    AUTO-TUNING In some cases, performing an auto-tune to get the proper motor constant will help in providing optimal performance when operating in sensorless vector control mode A044 = 03. Before auto-tuning make sure that parameter H003 is set to a value of the combined connected motors in kW’s, in some cases this value might be (1) size larger or smaller.
  • Page 23: Reduced Load Swing

    REDUCED LOAD SWING In traverse applications it is possible to reduce the chance of load swing by configuring the VFD for sensorless vector control and using the torque limits to help reduce starting load swing. Also, you will use the alternate acceleration and deceleration functions to reduce load swing when accelerating and decelerating to and from high speeds.
  • Page 24: Tandem Hoist / Trolley Ezcom (Speed / Command Syncing)

    TANDEM HOIST / TROLLEY EZCOM (SPEED / COMMAND SYNCING) Tandem hoist / trolley EZCOM can be used when 2 hoists / trolleys are used in tandem operation and require the frequency, command status, and run status to sync between each hoist. The VFD’s will need to be configured to communicate between each other and the internal logic activated.
  • Page 25: Ezcom Setup Guide

    EZCOM SETUP GUIDE Step Instruction Configure the VFD’s parameters using the EZCOM parameter chart. Most of the parameters should already be configured and only the ones highlighted in yellow should need to be changed. Power down both VFD’s and connect the 2-wire shielded cable to the corresponding SN & SP terminals as shown in the EZCOM circuit wiring example on the next page.
