Communication Buses & Networks

The Altivar 312 drive is designed to meet the configuration requirements found in the main industrial communication installations. It includes the Modbus and CANopen communication protocols as standard. It can also be connected to other industrial communication buses and networks using one of the communication cards or modules that are available as options.

Standard configuration

The Altivar 312 drive is equipped with a control I/O card 1 which integrates: I/O terminals, comprising: Six logic inputs: LI1 to LI6 Three analog inputs: AI1 to AI3 Two analog outputs: AOV and AOC


Two relay outputs: R1 and R2 A Modbus/CANopen communication port, that is accessed on an RJ45 connector The Modbus/CANopen communication port is specifically for controlling the drive via a PLC or another type of controller. It is also used for connecting dialogue and configuration tools: Remote display terminal Remote graphic display terminal SoMove setup software Simple Loader and Multi-Loader configuration tools

Communication cards for industrial applications

Several communication cards for industrial applications 2 are available as options. These cards are used in place of the drive's control I/O card 1 The following communication cards are available: CANopen Daisy chain card (optimized solution for daisy chain connection to CANopen machine bus, see page 40) DeviceNet card PROFIBUS DP card

Communication modules

The Altivar 312 drive can be connected to other communication buses and networks via modules that are available as options: Modbus TCP network via the Ethernet/Modbus bridge Fipio bus via the Fipio/Modbus gateway

(1) These two outputs cannot be used at the same time. Modicon M340 ATV 312 ATV 61 Magelis XBT Modbus serial link
