3-the motor was the old one come with ATV66 ,will we make any modifications? the big issue is the communication between drive and PLC as this ATV68 will be spare now and must be ready to be installed at any time
Facts and Changes
Causes and Fixes
Concerning the communication with Fipio you need to add a gateway, VW3A68301 ( you can download the documentation on Intranet at the Shopping kiosk ) , after you need to configure the ATV68 following the application, be careful there is no complete messaging capacity.
No problem for the ATV68 choice. Mechanically these inverters are completly different and you need to adapt some parts ( cables and so on ...).
For the encoder, it's the same ( RS422 - 5v ). Normally it's not necessary to modify the motor.
