List of faults and alarms

The "alarm list_*.xml" files are not necessary for the correct operation of the firmware and the associated commissioning tool. They only include an export of the "Alarm messages" text.

Customers occasionally request these exported texts so that they can further process them in their own applications or integrate them in external devices. As a consequence, as far as the V90 PN product is concerned, no additional support can be guaranteed here.

What is new?

SINAMICS V90 PN EPos functionality extension:

  • Automatically reverse the direction of searching reference point when reversing cam (e.g. Hardware limit switch) is detected. 2 optional reversing cams are available in reference mode "Reference cam (Signal REF) and encoder zero mark" and "Encoder zero mark only".
    • If referencing under telegram 111 and reversing cam is activated, please ensure that STOP cam is disable, which is executed by POS_STW2.15 (1 -> 0).
    • If referencing under telegram 7, 9, 110 and reversing cam is activated, it is not necessary to disable STOP cam.

Example: reversing cam in "Reference cam (signal REF) and encoder zero mark"
  • EPos reference point coordinate value(p2599) can be adjusted with PLC cyclically by new customized PZD (User2), which can help to update axis position to drive after power on, referencing and adjustment. The activation of cutomized PZD13 ~14 for EPos reference point coordinate value as below:
  • In V-Assistant, select main telegram 110 or 111 and supplymentary teleragm (p8864) set to 999. Customized PZD 13~14 is activated via p29152.
  • In TIA Portal, select main telegram 110 or 111 and supplymentary telegram 750. Then customized PZD 13~14 can be attached in telegram 750 and transmitted from controller to drive. 

Customized PZD 13~14 (User2) for EPos reference point coordinate value
  • DI triggered by external and DO command to external can be controlled by PROFINET via telegram 111. It can benifit the application which PLC is far away from drive and external components like sensor, switch and relay and can save I/O in PLC.
    • DI signals triggered by external components can be transmitted from drive to PLC by “user defined PZD send - DI status" by PROFINET.
    • DO signals to control external components can be transmitted from PLC to drive by “user defined PZD receive - Update DO status” by PROFINET.

Setting of digital inputs and outputs as undefined and new user defined PZD receive “Update DO status”

SINAMICS V90 PN System reliability optimization:

  • Improved thermal protection for SIMOTICS 1FL6 low inertia motor to protect motor running at overload condition.
  • Improved encoder momery protection to prevent conruption from weak connection of encoder and in combination with EMC disturbance.
  • Fix holding torque failure in travel to fixed stop if one button tuning is executed before travel to fixed stop.
  • Fix PROFINET communication setting incl. IP address and station name issue after power Off/On to ensure PROFINET communication smoothly. 
  • A new parameter p1433 is introduced to help to set the speed controller reference model natural frequency based on mechanism manually.
  • A new parameter p1981 is introduced to help to set the maximum distance manually when carrying out the pole position identification routine.

 What is new?
  • Supplementary telegram 750 for torque control is supported. The supplementary telegram can be used together with the standard main telegram, e.g. telegram 102 or 3 in conjunction with supplementary telegram 750 can extend the control words and status words as follows.
    • Additional torque set-point and torque limiting from controller to drive: Friction, inertia and acceleration torque compensation can be realized with this round upgrade, especially in Wind & Unwind branch. Meanwhile, It improves servo system dynamic performance in application aspects.
    • Actual torque feedback from drive to controller:  It can be used to realize Collision Detection or Feel the Torque function in handling machine.
  • Torque control mode is available which can be enabled by STW1.14. Torque set-point can be specified via telegram 750
  • Feedforward setting adaption to motor types: Speed and torque feed forward setting are automatically adapted according to motor inertia types, for example, speed feed forward is activated for low inertia by default while not activated for high inertia. It optimizes the adaptivity of auto tuning.
  • A new parameter p927 is introduced to lock all parameters in order to prevent from unexpected parameter changing.
