SIMODRIVE 611D: Limitations regarding the ground leakage test

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Which limitations apply to the ground leakage test?

For drive versions up to and including 06.08.26 (NCU SW 07.04.34), the following limitations apply additionally to the ground leakage test:

2. The ground leakage test is only permissible with deactivated brake control (MD1060=0), otherwise uncontrolled movements may occur.

3. The ground leakage test has not been released for linear motors (SLM) because the alarm 300513 “ground leakage detected“ may occur although the motor functions properly.

4. For linked axes, use the version "trigger during operation". (MD 1166 bit 1)
