Optional fieldbus modules

The Altivar Process drive can also be connected to other industrial fieldbuses and networks by using one of the fieldbus modules available as an option. Fieldbus modules are supplied in cassette format for ease of mounting/removal. Dedicated fieldbus modules: b CANopen: v RJ45 Daisy Chain v Sub-D v Screw terminal block b EtherCAT b PROFINET b PROFIBUS DP V1 b DeviceNet PROFINET and PROFIBUS DP V1 modules also support the Profidrive and CiA402 profiles. It is possible to maintain communication using a separate power supply for the control and power sections. Monitoring and diagnostics via the network are possible even if there is no power supplied to the power section.


The drive functions can be accessed via the various communication networks: b Configuration b Adjustment b Control b Monitoring Altivar Process drives offer a high degree of interfacing flexibility with the possibility to assign, by configuration, the different control sources (I/O, communication networks, and HMI terminal) to control functions in order to meet the requirements of complex applications. Network services and parameters are configured using the SoMove drive setup software, or using Unity software if the drive is being integrated into a PlantStruXure architecture. Communication is monitored according to the specific criteria for each protocol. However, regardless of the protocol, it is possible to configure how the drive responds to a detected communication interruption, as follows: b Define the type of stop when a communication interruption is detected b Maintain last command received b Fallback position at preset speed b Ignore the detected communication interruption
