RS-485 communication CR/LF
When "1" (Modbus-RTU protocol) is set in Pr. 549, the setting range within parenthesis is applied.
For the Modbus-RTU protocol, the data length is fixed to 8 bits and the stop bit depends on the Pr. 334 setting. (Refer to page 214)
The Modbus-RTU protocol becomes invalid.
The Modbus-RTU protocol is valid for only communication from the RS-485 terminals.
⋅ If communication is made without Pr. 336 RS-485 communication check time interval being changed from "0" (initial value), monitor,
parameter read, etc. can be performed, but the inverter results in an alarm as soon as it is switched to the NET operation mode.
If the operation mode at power on is the network operation mode, a communication alarm (E.SER) occurs after first
When performing operation or parameter write through communication, set "9999" or a greater value to Pr. 336. (The setting
depends on the computer side program.) (Refer to page 207)
⋅ Always reset the inverter after making the initial settings of the parameters. After you have changed the communication-related
parameters, communication cannot be made until the inverter is reset.
4.19.4 Communication EEPROM write selection (Pr. 342)
Parameters written via the inverter's PU connector, RS-485 terminals or from the communication option can be
written to the RAM. Set this parameter when frequent parameter changes are required.
Communication EEPROM write
can be set any time when the communication option is connected.
The above parameters
⋅ When changing the parameter values frequently, set "1" in Pr. 342 to write them to the RAM. The life of the EEPROM will
be shorter if parameter write is performed frequently with the setting unchanged from "0 (initial value)" (EEPROM write).
⋅ When Pr. 342
is set to
"1" (only RAM write)
Therefore, the parameter values available when power is switched on again are the values stored in EEPROM previously.
, the new values of the parameters will be cleared at power supply-off of the inverter.
