2) 4-wire RS485
The 4-wire RS485 device included as standard equipment, allows you to connect the inverter to a higher-level
system (host) and to set up a network for data communications between inverters. It makes it possible for the
inverter to be linked to a computer and to carry out data communications with other inverters.
The connector (RJ45) for the 4-wire RS485 device on the control circuit terminal block is used to connect to other
inverters.

 Example of the connection of inverters linked to a computer
<Independent communication>
Perform computer-inverter connection as follows to send operation frequency commands from the host computer
to inverter No. 3:
Host computer
INV
No.00
"Given away": Only the inverter with the selected inverter number conducts data processing. All other inverters,
(1) Data is sent from the host computer.
(2) Data from the computer is received at each inverter and the inverter numbers are checked.
(3) The command is decoded and processed only by the inverter with the selected inverter number.
(4) The selected inverter responds by sending the processing results, together with its own inverter number, to the
host computer.
(5) As a result, only the selected inverter starts operating in accordance with the operation frequency command by
communicating independently.
