How do I clone an AC10?

Using the AC10 Clone Module 1002-00-00

There are a number of different ways in which the Clone Module can be used with AC10 drive. It can be used to Clone a drive or it can be used as a USB to serial converter to allow a pc to communicate with an AC10 via the Modbus A and B terminals and the software PDB V1.3.

Using the clone module as a serial converter

To enable communication you must set the following parameters in the drive:

F900 = Inverter Address, range 1 - 255. Recommended setting is 1.
F901 = Modbus Mode. 1 = ASCII mode, 2 = RTU mode. Set to 2.
F903 = Parity Check. 0 = no check, 1 = Odd parity, 2 = Even parity. Set to 0.
F904 = Baud Rate = 9600, Set to 3.
F905 Timeout period 0 - 3000 seconds.

If the inverter has not received a communication from the PC the duration of the time set, the A10 will trip on CE. Setting F905 to 0.0 seconds will disable the timeout alarm.

In PDB click on the protocol Icon IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE. The settings must match those in the drive.

IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE

Set the timeout window IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE to 50 ms to speed up communications.

Using the Clone Module as a Cloning Tool

To use this feature the drive firmware must be version 2.07 or greater, for a 22kw drive or smaller. Parameter F105 is the firmware version. Verify the firmware version of the drive.

Wiring the Cloning Tool for AC10 IP20 Drives Smaller Than 22kW

The cloning tool requires an external +5vdc supply for AC10 IP20 Drives smaller than 22kw. The 4 pin connections are as below:

C/U Mode selection of parameter copying Cloning Tool or USB/485 converter.

Wiring the Cloning Tool for AC10 IP 20 Drives over 30 kw and all AC10 IP66 Drives

For these drive use the cable and connectors which come with the module. Connect it up as shown here:

IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE
IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE
For an AC10 IP20 Drive over 30 kw connect it as Shown.

IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE
For an AC10 IP66 Drive connect it as Shown.

Using the Cloning Tool to Copy a Drive

To use this feature the drive firmware must be version 2.07 or greater, for a 22kw drive or smaller. Parameter F105 is the firmware version. Verify the firmware version of the drive.
The communication parameters in the drive must be set to the default parameters.

To "COPY" the AC10 drive parameters into the Clone tool:

  1. Slide the toggle switch into the Padlock open position located on the side of the module.
  2. Press & hold the COPY IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE button until the drive MMI display will show COPY. This may take 5 seconds.
  3. The C/U LED on the Clone tool will turn Red on then off.
  4. When the parameters have been downloaded successfully, the S/F LED will be Green.

To "LOAD" parameters into an AC10 drive:

  1. To copy Motor Parameters set F640 = 0. By default F640 = 1. Motor data is NOT copied. See Note 1 at the end of this document.
  2. Set the toggle switch to the Padlock closed position.
  3. Press the LOAD IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE button. The drives display will show LOAD. This could take up to 10 seconds.
  4. The C/U LED on the clone tool will turn Red on then go off.
  5. When the parameters have been downloaded successfully, the S/F LED will be Green.

Using the Clone Tool, a PC, and the software PDB (Parker Drive Basic) to Upload /Download parameters

Parameters stored in the Clone Module can be uploaded into PDB and parameters stored in PDB can be downloaded in the clone module.
Plug the Cloning tool into a USB port on your PC. It must NOT be connected to a drive. Check the COM port number in Device Manger. The Protocol settings in PDB must be set as shown below. Also the Timeout function must be set to 500ms.

IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE

Click on the Clone Module tab and then the Enable Clone Module button.

IMAGE BROKEN -- DCLIFFE

Upload: Uploads drive parameters stored in the clone module into PDB.
Export: Saves Uploaded data as an ".xls" file.
Download: Downloads drive parameters open in PDB into the clone tool.
Import: Loads an ".xls" file into PDB.
Disable Clone: Disables the Clone Module.

Troubleshooting

Fault Mode Indicator Lights Possible reason for fault
1 S/F LED is always on No valid data in Clone module or it is wrong.
2 S/F LED is on once in 2 seconds Data is received wrong.
3 S/F LED is on twice in 2 seconds Receiving wrong code. PC is forbidden from copying.
4 S/F LED is on 3 times in 2 seconds Slave computer is interrupted while copying.


When "LOADing" parameters into an AC10 drive you have these options:

Function Code Function Definition Setting Range Mfr's Value Changeable
F638 Parameters copy enabled 0: Copy forbidden
1: Parameters copy 1
(voltage level and power rating are totally same)
2: Parameters copy 2
(without considering voltage level and power rating)
1 V
F640 Parameter copy type 0: Copy all parameters
1: Copy parameters
(except motor parameters from F801 to F810/F844)
1 V
