Mb2658 Posted August 12, 2018 Report Share Posted August 12, 2018 Hi Everyone: I am working on a project where I am trying to control an Invertek Optidrive E3 Single Phase VFD with a V700 via Modbus. I have looked at several examples where people connected a V570 and V1210 to a Optidrive E2 with success. From what I have been able to determine, the main functional difference between the E2 and E3 is that the E3 supports FC-16 and CANBus whereas the E2 only supports Modbus FC-3 and FC-6. I'm new to Modbus but I figured that before I get into the weeds on getting help troubleshooting the ladder logic, I want to ensure that I have the interconnecting right. I'm still trying to understand the proper cabling for communication between the V700 and the Optidrive. According to the installation guide for the V700, the RJ-11 pinout is as follows: 1 - A signal (+) 2- 0V Reference 3 - TXD signal 4 - RXD signal 5 - 0V Reference 6- B signal (-) According to the user's guide for the Optidrive, the RJ-45 pinouts are as follows: 1 - CAN - 2 - CAN+ 3- 0V 4 - -RS485(PC) 5- +RS485(PC) 6- +24V 7- -RS485 (Modbus RTU) 8- +RS485(Modbus RTU) I have made cables connecting pins V700 Pin 1 to E3 Pin 8 and V700 Pin 2 to E3 Pin 7 and V700 Pin 1 to E3 Pin 8 and V700 Pin 2 to E3 Pin 7. I have the jumpers set for RS-485 with termination and the Optidrive is set to accept control via Modbus. So far neither of the cables is allowing communication. I appreciate any input. Thanks.
