Configuration Guidelines for using PPP over GSM/GPRS card

Issue:

Configuration Guidelines for using PPP over GSM/GPRS card

Product Line:

NetBotz

Environment:

NetBotz version 2 using GSM/GPRS

Cause:

Configuring GSM/GPRS cards to establish a PPP link can be a challenge; however, it all depends on what settings are required to establish a PPP link with a GSM/GPRS service provider.

Resolution:


Before you begin, make sure the supported GSM/GPRS card has a valid SIM.

A successful PPP connection (i.e. with Cingular in the U.S.) via GSM/GPRS may be established by 2 basic steps:

* Set "Phone Number" to *99# (it signalizes GPRS network that this is not a regular phone call but a GPRS connection)
* On Advanced tab, UNCHECK "end LCP echo request to peer"
* Leave everything else default

Some GPRS service providers require more settings for a successful PPP connection (more common in Europe and Asia). Contact your GPRS provider for the following:

* Country code (if supported by the modem)
* User ID/Password
* Access Point Name (APN), used in "Extra Initialization commands" field in this format:

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","<APN>"

Where <APN> should be replaced with a specified APN of the desired GSM/GPRS network.

For instance,

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","orangeinternet"

or

AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","mobile.o2.co.uk" 



Note:To ensure your card and SIM are working correctly, install the card in your laptop or handheld first, then install it in the NetBotz appliance.

What does the "pedestal" setting do and how do I program it?

Issue:
What does the "pedestal" setting do and how do I program it?

Product Line:
Altivar 61, Altivar 71 series drives.

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers

Cause:
Clarification of this setting is needed by the customer.

Resolution:
The "Pedestal" setting is an option of the Reference Template parameter and can be found under menu 1.5, Inputs / Outputs configuration.

With Reference Template set to Standard (factory default) the input frequency reference will adjust the motor speed between the LSP parameter and the HSP parameter. With Reference Template set to "Pedestal" the input frequency reference will adjust the motor speed between 0 Hz. and HSP parameter

Example: Low Speed = 30 Hz, High Speed = 60Hz. Input speed reference is 0-10V on AI1 terminal.

With Reference Template set to Standard, the motor will run at 30Hz when the input speed refernece is 0V and will increase in speed as the input speed reference increases. If the 0-10V speed input is 5.0 volts (50%) then the speed of the motor will be 50% between LSP (30Hz.) and HSP (60Hz.) or 45Hz.

With Reference Template set to Pedestal, the motor will run at 30Hz. (50% of 0-60Hz) until the 0-10V speed reference reaches 5.0V (50% of 0-10V) and will then start to increase in speed as the speed reference rises above 50%.

Essentially, Reference Template determines whether the low end of the frequency reference is in relation to 0.0Hz, or in relation to the Low Speed Setting.

N/A

Resolution:
How do I set up an ATV12 to use the dial on the front as a speed reference

To set up the drive to give speed control via the dial on the front:

Firstly make sure that the drive is in REMOTE Configuration mode i.e. the three LED’s to the left of the display are not flashing in sequence. 

If they are, to get back to REMOTE press the MODE button for 3 seconds and then follow the sequence below:
Go to Configuration Mode – My Menu
Down to Reference channel 1 (Fr1) press the center of the JOG DIAL (ENTER)
Then set that to A1U1
Press the escape button until rdY appears.
You can then run the drive by the run and stop buttons on the front of the drive.

To do this Press the run button
Then press the center of the dial  reF appears
Press the center of the dial again 0.0 appears
Then by rotating the dial the speed will increase (the display is a % of the difference between LSP and HSP)
 If the start signal is given via a digital input LI*
In the Full Menu (FULL)
Control Menu CtL- and press the center of the JOG DIAL (ENTER)
Go to Channel Configuration (CHCF) and press the center of the JOG DIAL (ENTER)
Then Separate mode (SEP) and then Command Channel 1 (Cd1) and enter
Make sure it is set to terminals (tEr)
Press the escape button until rdY appears.
Start the drive via the start button.
Then press the center of the dial reF appears
Press the center of the dial again 0.0 appears
Then by rotating the dial the speed will increase (the display is a % of the difference between LSP and HSP)
This setting will remain active until the supply is removed to get back to it just repeat the pressing of the dial.
 
To monitor the Frequency or anything else go to reference mode.
 

Can the ATV312 (or the ATV31) jog at a value below LSP?

Issue:
Can the ATV312 (or the ATV31) jog at a value below LSP?

Product Line:
Altivar 312, Altivar 31

Environment:
All part numbers, all versions.

Cause:
Application Requirement. Customer wants to operate the drive at a jog speed which is below the normal Low Speed setting.

Resolution:
YES  
The Jog Frequency is adjustable between 0 to 10hz which may be lower than possible LSP setting.
When a run command (forward or reverse) is applied AND the Jog input is turned on the drive will run at the Jog Frequency.
When a run command is present without the Jog input turned on the drive will operate at the Frequency Reference which is adjustable between Low Speed (LSP) and High Speed (HSP).
If the Jog input is turned on while the drive is operating, it will decelerate to the Jog Frequency.  If the Jog input is turned off while the drive is running the drive will accelerate to the Frequency Reference.

 

Can the ATV61 or ATV71 drive save the last speed reference when using the external knob for speed control on the HMI?

Issue:
Will the ATV61 drive save the last speed reference when using the external knob for speed control on the HMI?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV61 and ATV71 with VW3A1101 HMI

Environment:
All

Cause:
Knob on remote HMI is a digital signal reference its not saved if you power cycled the drive.  Drive will start back at low speed or 0 hz.

Resolution:
Unforunately, the display will lose the reference once the drive along with keypad lose power.
If you need to maintain the speed reference after you power down you may need to add a remote mounted POT to AI1, com and +10vdc as an option.
The HMI Reference if used will go back to 0 or LSP(low speed) if cycled power to the drive. Can set LSP to desired setting. Also, there is a Reference saved parameter but it applies only to +/- Speed.
It does not apply to the HMI reference.

Goals and Symptoms

What size increments does the speed change with each pulse of the speed push button?

Will the output increase once if the +ve speed is 'held closed' or will it continue to INCREASE speed to the upper limit set within the drive?
Can you change the speed increment steps?

Facts and Changes

ATV58 on an Asi system. VW3A58305 Asi communications card is connected. Customer would like to INCREMENT / DECREMENT speed of drive over ASi. The manual for the Asi card states that this can be done by setting paramter bit 1, and 2. Customer wishes to control speed of drive via a Magelis HMI

Causes and Fixes

It's not so simple because it's not only speed. When you push ( + ) the value of AI is apply to the ramp and LSP is apply during the ( - ) pulse.
And it continue up to limit if you stay on the button. It's available for terminals , As-I.

How can I configure my ATV630 drive to quickly ramp up to speed when a run command is issued and then operate in PID mode once up to speed?

Issue:
I need my pump motor to quickly accelerate to speed when starting, and then have PID enabled once up to speed.

Product Line:
ATV630 series drives and enclosed versions (660, 680 . . .)

Environment:
All models, All serial numbers where PID function is being used.

Cause:
Pump manufacturer requires the pump be at a minimum speed within a certain amount of time to prevent bearing damage and this is faster than the ACC rating that will be used in PID mode.

Resolution:
Parameter "PID Acceleration time" under [Complete settings] [Pump functions] [PID controller] [Settings] can be used to achieve this function.   Set your low speed setting (LSP) to the minimum speed your motor needs to run, then set the PID Acceleration time (ACCP) parameter to the number of seconds you want the drive to take to achieve full speed.  (If you want the drive to reach 30 Hz. in 5 seconds, set ACCP to 10.  ACCP is speed to 60.0Hz.  10 seconds to 60 Hz. = 5 seconds to 30 Hz.)   The drive will then follow this acceleration rate until the LSP speed is attained, then switch over to PID mode and follow the 'PID RAMP"  time while in PID mode.




 

How can I configure an output on the ATV31 /312 / 320 for a mechanical brake control?

A mechanical brake can be controlled by the ATV31 / 312 / 320 drive R1 or R2 relay output. It is preferable to use R2 because R1 is often reserved as the fault contact.

It is possible to control a mechanical brake in two different ways on the ATV31 / 312 / 320 drive using a relay output:
 

Please note that for the ATV320 drives, the menu structure has changed slightly and first you must access the FULL menu as follows:

RDY > CONF > FULL

Once in the FULL menu, you will see the SIN (Simply start) menu, but if you scroll from here you will find the same menu as the ATV31 / 312 drives.

This function is also used if the customer has a safety rack as well as the brake, to lift the rack locking catch.
 

Operational Adjustments

After adjusting the basic settings, if the load slips on start up, increase the value in IBR
If load slipping occurs on stopping, decrease the BET value and an increase IBR may also be required
 
Auto-tuning
In the case of hoisting or position control, the Auto-tuning operation is essential.

This means reading the information on the motor rating plate and copying it into the drive DRC parameters, then launching the Tune or auto-tuning process. To carry out the auto tune the motor must be connected to the drive (output contactor active) and the LI1 or LI2 run command must be disabled.

The information required to be entered in to the DRC menu before an auto tune is carried out is as follows:

drC menu =>  UnS = Nominal voltage indicated on motor rating plate
                       FrS = Nominal frequency indicated on the motor rating plate
                       nCr = Nominal current indicated on the motor rating plate
                       nSP = Nominal slip indicated on the motor rating plate
                       COS = Motor power factor indicated on the motor rating plate
Set the parameter  tUn = YES: Confirm by pressing the ENT key for at least 2 seconds If the auto-tuning operation is successful, tUn changes to Done.
If the auto tune does not complete then the display will show TNF (auto tune failed).
 

Notes
Applications that require brake control  in a hoisting application often need a hoisting resistor fitting to the drive.

The electrical characteristics of the relays R1  and  R2 relay contacts are as follows:

on a resistive load are 5 A for 250 VAC or 30 VDC
and on an inductive load (cos phi = 0.4 and L/R = 7 ms) are 2 A at 250 VAC,

they are inadequate for direct power supply of most mechanical brake coils, whose supply voltage alone is normally 400 VAC: you need to relay them using an LC1K or LC1D contactor.

How do I set up the sleep/wake-up on the ATV71/ATV61?

Issue:
Understanding PID wake up function

Product Line:
Altivar 61 and 71

Environment:
All models and serial numbers

Cause:
None

Resolution:
There is no specific rules for define when use one and when use other. It is dependent on the application but especially on the need and on the custom of the customer. Some people are going to think in % of error with regard to the PID reference while of the other one is going to think in value with regard to the PID feedback. These 2 parameters have the same purpose but the method is simply different.

The following list the three ways to configure PID Sleeping/Wake up in menu 1.7 Application Function

1.  [SLE] Sleep Offset Threshold (ATV61 only)
2.  [rSL] PID wake up thresh. (ATV71 only)
3.  [UPP] PID Wake up Thres. (ATV61 and ATV71)

(1) Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE] – Frequency above low speed at which the
drive wakes up.
Set Low speed timeout [tSL]
Set Low speed [LSP]
Set Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE]
Following operation at LSP +SLE for a defined period
Example:
Low speed [LSP] = 20
Low speed timeout [tSL] = 60
Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE] = 10
The drive will sleep when the drive runs at low speed for 60 seconds
The drive will wake up when the speed reference is 30 hz.

(2) [rSL] Restart error threshold – The difference between the set point [rPI]
and the feedback [rPF].
To wake up the drive, the PID error [rPE] must equal the Restart error
threshold [rSL].
Example:
If Set point [rPI] = 500 and Error [rSL] = 30
The drive will wake up when the PID error [rPE] is 30 below the Set point
[rPI].

(3) [UPP] Restart feedback threshold – The actual set point at which the drive
will wake up.
To wake up the drive the PID Feedback will be equal to the PID Wake up
Thres [UPP].
Example:
If Set point [rPI] = 500 and Wake up thres. [UPP] = 470
The drive will wake up when the PID Feedback [rPF] = 470.
