Micromaster 440 Faults and Alarms

In the event of a failure, the inverter switches off and one of the following fault codes appear on the display.
FaultPossible CausesDiagnose & RemedyQuit
F0001
OverCurrent
- Motor power (P0307) does not correspond to the inverter power (r0206)
- Motor lead short circuit
- Earth faults
Check the following:
1. Motor power (P0307) must correspond to inverter power (r0206).
2. Cable length limits must not be exceeded.
3. Motor cable and motor must have no shortcircuits or earth faults
4. Motor parameters must match the motor in use
5. Value of stator resistance (P0350) must be correct

OFF2
F0002
OverVoltage
- DC-link voltage (r0026) exceeds trip level (P2172)
- Overvoltage can be caused either by too high main supply voltage or if motor is in regenerative mode. Regenerative mode can be cause by fast ramp downs or if the motor is driven from an active load.
Check the following:
1. Supply voltage (P0210) must lie within limits indicated on rating plate .
2. DC-link voltage controller must be enabled (P1240) and parameterized properly.
3. Ramp-down time (P1121) must match inertia of load.
4. Required braking power must lie within specified limits.
NOTE:
Higher inertia requires longer ramp times; otherwise, apply braking resistor.
OFF2
F0003
UnderVoltage
- Main supply failed.
- Shock load outside specified limits.
Check the following:
1. Supply voltage (P0210) must lie within limits indicated on rating plate.
2. Supply must not be susceptible to temporary failures or voltage reductions.
OFF2
F0004
Inverter Over
Temperature
- Inverter overloaded.
- Duty cycle too demanding.
- Motor power (P0307) exceeds inverter power capability (r0206).
Check the following:
1. Load duty cycle must lie within specified limits.
2. Motor power (P0307) must match inverter power (r0206)

Siemens Sinamics CU320 Modules: Beyond the User Manual

There are two Sinamics S120 CU320 Modules. There is the CU320-2 DP, which is the 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0, and the CU320-2 PN, which is the 6SL3040-1MA01-0AA0.

These multi-drive Control Units increase axis count and functionality. They have an Ethernet port, as well as more I/O and controller to controller communication. Each unit can manage up to 6 servo or vector axes in a high performance system. For standard systems, up to 12 V/Hz axes can be controlled from one CU320-2 unit. These Control Units significantly reduce system costs, as they increase functionality for positioning, safety integration, and drive control allowing all these functions to be controlled by one unit versus several. There is also additional flexibility with a high number of programming options and digital inputs. With up to 12 binary inputs, the modules’ high I/O count add ease of use. The additional Ethernet port expands programming options as well. Overall, the CU320-2 control units allow for simple yet flexible performance with minimal cost and space requirements.

CU320-2 DP

CU320-2 DPThe CU320-2 DP is a Sinamics Control Unit with a Profibus interface. It is a central Control Module in which the closed-loop and open-loop functions are implemented for one or more Line Modules and/or Motor Modules. It can be used with firmware version 4.3 or greater. It has 12 digital inputs, 8 digital inputs/outputs, 4 DRIVE-CLiQ interfaces, a Profibus and Ethernet interface, a serial interface (RS232), an option slot, and 3 measuring sockets.

MRO Electric stocks new and refurbished CU320-2 DP Control Units, which is part number 6SL3040-1MA00-0AA0. If you would like a replacement module, please call 800-691-8511 or email sales@mroelectric.com.

CU320-2 PN

CU320-2 PN
The CU320-2 PN is a Sinamics S120 Control Unit without a Profibus interface. It has the same interfaces as described above, however without the Profibus port. It is also a central control unit with closed-loop and open-loop functions that can be implemented for one or more Line or Motor modules.

MRO Electric stocks new and refurbished CU320-2 PN Control Units, which is part number 6SL3040-1MA01-0AA0. If you would like a replacement module, please call 800-691-8511 or email sales@mroelectric.com.

Schneider Electric TSXCUSBMBP: Beyond the User Manual

Need a replacement TSXCUSBMBP? Request a Price Quote Now.

The Schneider Electric TSXCUSBMBP is a USB Modbus Plus Communications Adapter. In this guide, we will show you how to install the hardware, configure the driver software, and use the Modbus Plus network diagnostics features of the driver software.

Important: The least versions of the TSXCUSBMBP driver to run on Win Server 2012 R2 are driver versions 8.0 and 8.1.

The TSXCUSBMBP is designed to bridge the gap between a USB connection and the Modbus Plus network. It combines hardware and software together in one simple and single device. The module has its own Modbus Plus node address which can be set through the TSXCUSBMBP driver software. This module allows software applications using the serial Modbus RTU communications to connect on the high-speed Modbus Plus network, as well as provide diagnostic capabilities to the Modbus Plus network.

Most Win32 Applications that support serial Mdubus communications can use a Modicon TSXCUSBMBP to connect on a Modbus Plus network. A VSP (Virtual Serial Port) is what redirects communications from Concept, Unity, ProWorx32 and other programs to the TSXCUSBMBP communications adapter. After the VSP is installed, it will create one serial port with the port reference as defined in the module’s driver software. When configuring the Modbus application software, this port reference is selected as the serial port for the application to use. The routing table is used to associate Modbus Slave IDs with 5-byte Modbus Plus routing paths which allow the application software to communicate with any Modbus Plus device within range on the network.

The TSXCUSBMBP’s hardware consists of a box with a USB cable from one end (which connects to the PC) and a standard Modbus Plus DB9 connector on the other end (for the Modbus Plus network). Local signalling LEDs on the top cover of the device tell you the presence of power from the USB port and the state of the Modbus Plus network – no external power supply is required.

TSXCUSBMBP Installation

To install the TSXCUSBMBP, you will need the following:
– Windows XP Operating System with service pack 2, or Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or greater.
– 1 MB of free disk space.
– Minimum of 256 MB of RAM.
– One free USB port or a USB Hub that supports USB 1.1 or greater.

If a previous version of the TSXCUSBMBP was installed, the VSP component of the driver must be manually uninstalled using Device Manager before a new version can be installed. After this, the new driver should be installed before connecting the new TSXCUSBMBP to the PC. After the new driver is installed, connect the TSXCUSBMBP and install using the New Hardware Wizard. After completing the instructions, you should see a message stating “Your new hardware is ready to use.” Restart your computer, and the device should be fully functional. If the driver starts up before the TSXCUSBMBP is connected, then it will be necessary to re-scan for adapters so the driver can detect it.

TSXCUSBMBP Configuration

To configure the module, you will need to do the following:

1. Configure the Modbus Plus Node Address
The communications adapter must be assigned a Modbus Plus node address to communicate on the network. Select “Settings” and then type the address in the appropriate box. When complete, hit “Save”.

2. Configure the Slave Response Timeout
The slave response timeout is used by the module each time it sends a request from an application out on the network to a slave device. Use the manual to determine the appropriate value that should be used with your system. Select “Settings” and then type the value in the appropriate box. When complete, hit “Save”.

3. Configure the Virtual Serial (COM) Port
To do this, select “Virtual Modbus Port.” Select the desired COM port from the list available. When complete, click “Save”.

If you experience any problems while configuring your adapter, please use the table below to determine the appropriate error code given by the LEDs, if applicable. As always, refer to the user manual for more complete information.
