AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE

Description

AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE sets the motor type and the torque control algorithm for the motor. The following table provides the motor types:

AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE Motor and Control Type
0 Rotary surface permanent magnet motor
2 Induction motor with V/Hz open loop control
4 Induction motor with closed loop control
6 Rotary interior permanent magnet motor
10 Rotary Surface Permanent Magnet (SPM) motor with sensorless control

Each motor type has a set of parameters that must be configured either through automatically setting them to values in motor memory (when AXIS#.MOTOR.AUTOSET = 1) or through manual user settings. The list of required parameters are reported by AXIS#.SETUPREQLIST which updates when the motor type changes. When any of the required parameters are not configured, the drive reports F5005 (Drive motor parameters setup incomplete) on the axis.

The following parameters are required for rotary surface permanent magnet motors (AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE = 0 or 10):

The following parameters are required for linear SPM motors (AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE = 1):

The following parameters are required for induction motors with open loop V/f control (AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE = 2):

The following parameters are required for induction motors with closed loop control (AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE = 4):

The following parameters are required for rotary interior permanent magnet motors (AXIS#.MOTOR.TYPE = 6):
