IP.RESET

Description

When this command is issued a new IP will be acquired using IP.MODE to select what method is used.

Notes:

  1. When issuing this command, it is likely the connection to the drive will be severed, and a new connection will need to be made.
  2. IP.RESET will return an error if issued while the drive is enabled. IP.RESET is allowed when drive is disabled, or in dynamic braking mode.
  3. Ensure all values of IP.ADDRESS, IP.SUBNET, and IP.GATEWAY are configured if using IP.MODE 1

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 off-line, 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 both rotary switches 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.

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).
