  • Page 4: Safety Precautions - Precautions De Securité

    1. Safety Precautions - Precautions de securité WARNING/ATTENTION! According to the EEC standards the AV300i should be used only after checking that the mechanical equipment uses safety devices required by the 89/392/EEC set of rules. Drive systems cause mechanical motion. It is the responsibility of the user to insure that any such motion does not result in an unsafe condition.
  • Page 5 CAUTION / PRECAUTION: Do not operate the drive without a ground wire being connected. The motor chassis should be grounded to earth through a ground lead separate from all other equipment ground leads to prevent noise coupling. The grounding connector shall be sized in accordance with the NEC or Canadian Electrical Code.
  • Page 6 6. A capacitative load (e.g. variable power factor capacitors) should not be connected to the output of the drive (terminals U2, V2, W2). Aucune charge capacitive ne doit être connectée à la sortie du convertisseur (bornes U2, V2 et W2) (par exemple des condensateurs de mise en phase).

    7. Pre Power Checks The following should be checked before switching ON the Drive: Grounds / Grounding • Verify ground connections between the drive and motor • Verify AC Input, AC Output and control wiring aren’t grounded Connections • Verify AC Input (U1/L1, V1/L2, W1/L3), AC Output (U2/T1, V2/T2, W2/T3), DC link connection (C,D), Motor thermistor (78, 79), OK Relay (80, 82), Relay 2 (83,85) and regulation board points (1...46, XS, XE) connections.

  • Page 20 NOTE: “xxx range error” or “timeout” messages may also occur in some extreme parameter ranges. Repeat the tune in this case. If error messages are persistent see troubleshooting section. If there was some reason you did not want to keep these values permanently, but only wanted to try to run the drive with them, there is no need to save them to permanent memory.
