AXIS#.MOTOR.POLES

Description

AXIS#.MOTOR.POLES sets the number of motor poles for a rotary motor. It is used for commutation control and represents the number of individual magnetic poles of the motor (not pole pairs). A motor's magnetic poles range from 0 to 510, which corresponds to 0 to 255 magnetic pole pairs. The division value of motor poles (AXIS#.MOTOR.POLES) and feedback poles (FB1.POLES) must be an integer when setting drive to enable, otherwise a fault is issued.


  • This parameter is required to be configured for all motor types.
