UNI3405: Beyond the User Manual Parameters

The UNI3405 Unidrive is part of the Classic Unidrive series. Control Techniques introduced the Unidrive Classic around 1993 in Europe and approximately 1995 in the Americas. Because the Unidrive Classic ran simple Open Loop, Closed Loop Vector, and Servo motor applications as well as offering a Regen mode, the UNI3405 found its way into a great many industrial applications, from simple to quote complex.

Due to its status as a legacy product, the UNI3405 is becoming available only in limited quantities.

The UNI3405 contains approximately 500-600 parameters that help machine manufacturers achieve the desired functionality for a certain machine requirement. Some applications may require 20-30 or more parameters to be changed from the drives factory default settings. Should drive replacement become necessary, one must have a complete and accurate list of these parameters so that the original functionality can be restored. If you do not have a list of the required parameters, one could copy down these parameters manual. This is assuming that the drive still works enough to power the display, and even then the manual copying of parameters is tedious and error prone.

140ACI04000: Beyond the User Manual

The Modicon Quantum 140ACI04000 analog input module provides 16 channels. Each channel is individually configurable for a 0…25 mA, 0…20mA, or 4…20mA signal.

The 140ACI04000 module has broken wire detection in the 4…20mA current mode.

A Quantum removable terminal strip, part number 140XTS00200, is used to allow for easy maintenance. The terminal strip is connected with two screws and can easily be used with any of the Input-Output modules in the Quantum series.

All Quantum I/O modules, including the 140ACI04000, are optically isolated from the bus, ensuring safe and trouble-free operation. This isolation also allows modules to be hot swapped.

Optionally, you can insert mechanical keys between the I/O module and the terminal strip to ensure that the terminal strip to ensure the field wiring and module type are properly matched. Key codes are unique for each module type, and the key kits are shipped with each I/O module.

As an option, modules can be ordered with a conformal coating, which changes the part number to 140ACI04000C. This coating protects the module’s internal circuitry from corrosive gases such as Chlorine, Nitric Oxide, Hydrogen Sulfide, and Sulfur Dioxide.

UD75: Beyond the User Manual

The UD75 CTnet Interface card for the Unidrive Classic series is supplied in a large option module. It is an add-on card for the UD70 applications card. The UD70 processor and operating system handles all network activity, and uses a dual-port RAM interface to transfer data between itself and the drive.

The UD70 CTnet retains full functionality, allowing the user to download normal DPL application programs. No program modifications are required to allow existing DPL programs to run. A different UD70 operating system file (“UD70NET.SYS”) is used, and the UD70 has this system file pre-loaded.

The Unidrive must be disconnected from the mains supply before installing or removing any option module, including the UD75.

Isolate the drive from the mains supply and allow 5 minute for the DC bus capacitors to discharge. Insert the large option module. Ensure that it is correctly inserted. The module will click firmly into place. To remove the module, pull on the black tab and the module will disengage from the connector and pull out of the drive.

For more info you can visit the UD75 product page here. For price and ordering info you can email sales@mroelectric.com or call 1-800-691-8511. We have these and all the other Unidrive Classic option modules in stock, along with the drives themselves.

The 6SN1145-1BA01-0BA1 Infeed/Regenerative feedback module is rated at 16/21kW and stabilized with internal cooling. This Simodrive is no longer in production as of 2014, but still widely avaialable and used around the world.

A Simodrive drive group has a modular configuration comprising line filter, commutating reactor, line supply infeed module (such as the 6SN1145-1BA01-0BA1), drive modules as well as, when required: monitoring, pulsed resistor and capacitor module(s).
Satisfactory operation is ensured only in conjunction with the components that
are described in this Configuration Manual or published in the Catalog NC60
(Internet Mall) and with adherence to the required boundary/application condi-
tions.
Failure to observe this along with improper use and application conditions can
void your certifications, conformity declarations or warranty claims. In order to
avoid contamination, the modules should be installed in a control cabinet with
degree of protection IP 54.
Simodrives can also be arranged in several tiers one above the other or next to
one another. The drive modules are connected through the DC bus bars on the front of the units.

AS-BDAU-204: Beyond the User Manual

The Modicon AS-BDAU-204 is a 4-channel analog output module which is designed to control adjustable frequency drives, positioning valves, dampers, etc. Each channel is independently configurable to provide either voltage or current loop output.

For proper operation the module requires power from an external source (250mA @ 24VDC). When an external source is NOT used the module pulls power from the internal bus and gives a false reading. Do not leave this module unpowered in the rack.
The ASBDAU204 module features open current loop (broken wire) detection with warnings via LED’s and accessible registers. The ASBDAU204 can be configured to hold last value in the event communication to the CPU is lost for more than 1 second, the CPU is stopped or power is lost.
There is an Amber LED on the front of the module that flashes to indicate a module fault. A Green LED at the top front of the module indicates the readiness of the module. A Green LED at each channel will remain on or flash quickly as data is sent over the channel. In
current mode a Red LED at each channel indicates an open current loop (broken wire) or a high loop impedance (>500Ω) is detected.
