IP.MODE

Description

This command determines which method of acquiring an IP Address the drive will take.


  • Mode 0 and Mode 1 contain multiple methods of acquiring an IP Address. In these modes each method will be implemented in the order they are listed below until an IP Address is acquired

The drive will attempt to acquire a new IP Address as soon as the IP.RESET command is issued.

IP Mode Mode of Acquiring IP Address
0 Rotary Switches, DHCP, Auto IP
1 IP.ADDRESS, IP.SUBNET, IP.GATEWAY
2 DHCP, Auto IP

  • This parametr is R/O on AKD-C and AKD-N.

Recovering communications with a drive on an un-reachable IP address

Sometimes a drive may be configured for an IP Address, and the drive needs to be taken offline, and bench tested, or otherwise used outside of its saved IP Settings. If IP.MODE has been set to 1 (using software defined static IP), the drive will boot up on an IP Address that may be unreachable with the host computer’s settings.

If the IP address prevents communication the IP settings can be reset to default by the following procedure:

  1. Set the rotary switch(es) to 0
  2. Hold down button B1 (top-side of drive) for 5 seconds.

The display will flash 0.0.0.0 and then attempt to discover an address by DHCP. Without removing logic power from the drive, use WorkBench to connect to the drive, reconfigure the IP address settings as desired, and store the values to non-volatile memory.


  • If the AKD-N’s connected to the AKD-C are set to an invalid static ip address, the command STRINGS.IPMODERESET on the AKD-C can be used to reset the ip mode of all AKD-Ns. After execution of this command, the AKD-N retrieve a new IP address either through DHCP or Auto IP.

Fieldbus Information

If your drive type is listed as supported but no index, address, or instance number is listed, then this parameter is accessible through WorkBench, but not over your fieldbus type. For information on SynqNet parameters see Supported Parameters (➜ p. 1).
