Check for compressor motor converter time out
by: Anonymous

Hi all,

* Check communication cable
* Isolate converter from module, and use the VSD simulation software to test whether module or converter is at fault.

--> A PC and RS485 <-> RS232 converter box is required as well as the DFM4win cable) is required.The cable is to be connected in place of converter cable connection. If the RS485 port is faulty ==> new module is required.
- Replace modbus adapter card

Is this not under warranty?

My guess would be some feedback sensor from the motor is not sensing the motor speed correctly, but just a guess.

Does it seem to working OK but then stop due to this?

I suspect a feedback sensor failed, but can't find a spec specific to these machines.

Anyway, hopefully carl or buster will have something.

Sounds like an open between the converter (the vsd) and the motor.
