Connector X1 - Modbus RTU (RS-485) IN

Connection for Modbus RTU. Connector type: M12, 5-pin, A-coded, male

Pin Function Note
1 n.c. Internally connected with PIN 1 of X2
2 RS-485-  
3 COMMON GND Electrically isolated from the GND of the main supply and the inputs/outputs
4 RS-485+  
5 n.c.  

RS-485 line polarization

Note: The controller is not equipped with line polarization and expects the master device to have one.
If the master device on the bus does not have line polarization of its own, a pair of resistors must be attached to the RS-485 balanced cables:
  • A pull-up resistor to a 5V voltage on the RS-485+ (D1) cable
  • A pull-down resistor to earth (GND) on the RS-485- (D0) cable
The value of these resistors must be between 450 ohm and 650 ohm. A 650 ohm resistor permits a higher number of devices on the bus.

In this case, a line polarization must be attached at a location for the entire serial bus. In general, this location should be on the master device or its connection. All other devices then no longer need to implement line polarization.

Connector X2 - Modbus RTU (RS-485) OUT

Connection for Modbus RTU. Connector type: M12, 5-pin, A-coded, female

Pin Function Note
1 n.c. Internally connected with PIN 1 of X1
2 RS-485-  
3 COMMON GND Electrically isolated from the GND of the main supply and the inputs/outputs
4 RS-485+  
5 n.c.

Connector X3 - voltage supply

Connection for the main supply. Connector type: M12, 5-pin, B-coded, male

Voltage source

The operating or supply voltage supplies a battery, a transformer with rectification and filtering, or a switching power supply.

Note:
  • EMC: For a DC power supply line longer than 30 m or when using the motor on a DC bus, additional interference-suppression and protection measures are necessary.
  • An EMI filter is to be inserted in the DC supply line as close as possible to the controller/motor.
  • Long data or supply lines are to be routed through ferrites.

5 n.c. Not used

Permissible operating voltage

The maximum operating voltage is 51.5 V DC. If the input voltage of the controller exceeds this threshold value, the motor is switched off and an error triggered. Above 50.5 V, the integrated ballast circuit (3 W power) is activated.

The minimum operating voltage is 10 V DC. If the input voltage of the controller falls below this threshold value, the motor is switched off and an error triggered.

A charging capacitor of at least 4700 µF / 50 V (approx. 1000 µF per ampere rated current) must be connected to the supply voltage to avoid exceeding the permissible operating voltage (e.g., during braking).

Connector X4 - inputs/outputs and external logic supply

Connection for the digital and analog inputs/outputs and the external logic supply. Connector type: M12, 12-pin, A-coded, male

12 +UB Logic +24 V DC, input voltage for the logic supply, current consumption: approx. 39 mA
Note: The windings of the motor are not supplied by the logic supply.

In 4015h, you can activate the alternative function of the digital inputs, which is used for the special drive modes. See chapter Special drive modes (clock-direction and analog speed).

If you set 3240h:07h to the value "1", three differential inputs are available instead of six single-ended inputs.

The following table shows all possible combinations:

Pin Basic function Alternative function
Single-ended Differential Single-ended Differential
2 Input 1 - Input 1 Release –Release
3 Input 2 / Direction input in clock-direction mode + Input 1 Direction Release
4 Input 3 / clock input in clock-direction mode - Input 2 / - Direction input in clock-direction mode Clock –Direction
5 Input 4 + Input 2 / + Direction input in clock-direction mode Digital input 4 Direction
6 Input 5 - Input 3 / - Clock input in clock-direction mode Digital input 5 –Clock
7 Input 6 + Input 3 / + Clock input in clock-direction mode Digital input 6 Clock
The following switching thresholds apply for inputs 1 to 6:
Max. Voltage Switching thresholds

24 V 14.74 V 3.78 V

Switch S1 - hex coding switch for slave address and baud rate

Rotary switch S1 can be used to set the source for the slave address and the baud rate. See chapter Communication settings.

Switch S2 - 150 ohm termination resistor

DIP switch S2 switches the termination of 150 ohm between RS-485+ and RS485- on (DIP switch set to "ON", left) or off.
