Part number:
With the new firmware release FW2.10 of MICROMASTER 440, some functions and parameters have been revised, added or removed with respect to firmware release FW2.09. The parameter structure has been kept.

The improvements involve the following subjects:
• Changing parameters (min/max values, default values, access stage, attributes)
• Motor holding brake (MHB, bit r0052.C)
• Motor parameters (P0308, P0309, P0314)
• Digital inputs (P0705, P0706)
• Command / setpoint source (P0719)
• Expansion of the function "analog output" (P0775, P0785)
• Fixed frequencies (P1016-P1019, P1025, P1027)
• Current controllers (P1745, P1746)
• PID fixed setpoints (P2216-P2219, P2225, P2227)
• Free function blocks (expanded timer function)

The most important changes that have been made to parameters of MICROMASTER 440 with FW 2.09 when compared to those of MICROMASTER 440 with FW 2.10 are listed in the attached document.

MICROMASTER 440 (MM4): What are the differences in the control of the output relay (option, motor holding brake) of the MM440 with FW2.09 to FW2.10?Go to beginning
Part number:
Both for MM440 with FW2.09 as well as also for MM440 with FW2.10, when the motor holding brake is activated (P1215), the setpoint is enabled with the time that is set in parameter P1216.
The main difference between the two firmware versions is the fact that the bit to control the brake (r0052.C)is set when the MM440 boots, with:
FW2.09 after the time in P1216 has expired,
and
FW2.10 when Fmin in P1080 is reached.

These differences have different effects on the overall behavior of the drive and are described in more detail in the attached file.

MICROMASTER4, SINAMICS G120 (CU2x0x): What are the differences between the parameters of the MICROMASTER 4 and those of the SINAMICS G120?Go to beginning
Part number:

This FAQ applies only to the SINAMICS G120/G120D Control Units without “-2” in the product name and MICROMASTER 4 inverters. 

Description
The parameter structure of the SINAMICS G120 is based on the MICROMASTER 440, and represents a consequential further development. Although the parameter structures have remained the same - the G120 offers users many new functions. The implementation and handling of the new functions means that certain changes had to be made to some parameters. The main differences are therefore also associated with the fact that the SINAMICS G120 has a modular design. The SINAMICS G120 has different types of Control Modules (CUs) that have different functions and communication interfaces.
For instance the CU240S DP-F safety module is configured for PROFIBUS-DP and also includes safety functionality. However, there is no possibility of setting USS for the RS485. For the CU240S module the opposite applies: This module does not have any safety functionality and has no possibilities of making settings for a fieldbus; however, this module can address a COM link via USS.

Guidance
All of the changes to the parameters of the various SINAMICS G120 control modules with firmware release 2.0 in comparison to those of MICROMASTER 440 FW 2.10 are provided in the attached file.

MICROMASTER 4 (MM440): How do I download an MM440 parameter set with FW2.09 in FW2.1x?Go to beginning
Part number:

This FAQ applies only to MICROMASTER 4 inverters.

When downloading an MM440 parameter set from an already existing STARTER/DriveMonitor/AOP project version with inverter FW2.09 into a new one with inverter FW2.1x, indices 1 and 2 of the parameters - used to select the fixed frequencies P1016, P1017, P1018, P1019, P1025 and P1027 - are not changed, why?

For MM440 with FW2.09, the parameters to select the fixed frequencies P1016, P1017, P1018, P1019, P1025 and P1027 do not have an index; an index was introduced with FW2.10.

STARTER
When changing the firmware version of the inverter in STARTER from FW2.09 to FW2.1x, only the values of BDS 1 (index 0) of the above-specified parameters are changed. The values for BDS 2 and 3 (indices 1 and 2) assume the default settings.

Please proceed as follows in order to download a parameter set from an MM440 with FW 2.09 into an MM440 with FW 2.1x:

  1. Convert the firmware version of the inverter in STARTER. You can take all of the information for this from the FAQ "Downloading a parameter set from an existing STARTER project version" Article ID: 22283667.
  2. Change the values in BDS 2 and 3 to the value of BDS 1 - or as required.
  3. Save the STARTER project.
  4. Go online and download the parameter set.

 

DriveMonitor
When changing the firmware version of the inverter in the DriveMonitor from 2.0 to 2.1 the parameters to select the fixed frequencies get empty indices 1 and 2 without any settings at all. Only BDS 1 (index 0) accepts old values. When downloading such a parameter set into the inverter, indices 1 and 2 of the above mentioned parameters are not changed.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Convert the firmware version of the inverter in DriveMonitor. In the menu bar select "File -> Drive properties". In the "Device version" window that opens select Version 02.1 and acknowledge your selection with OK.
  2. Change the values in BDS 2 and 3 to the value of BDS 1 - or as required.
  3. Save the DriveMonitor project.
  4. Go online and download the parameter set.

AOP
When downloading a parameter set from an MM440 with FW 2.09 - saved in the AOP - into an MM440 with FW 2.10, only index 1 of the above mentioned parameters is changed. Old values remain in indices 1 and 2. This is the reason that after the parameter set has been downloaded you should change these values back to the value of index 0 - or as required.

MICROMASTER 430: Why does the MM430 hang up when I try to set P0731, P0732 or P0733?Go to beginning
Part number:
Applies to: MM430


This problem only occurs when P0003 = 2. 
To clear the hang up, simply cycle the power.
To set the relay functions, set P0003 = 3 and the parameter can be set without problems. The software problem has been identified and will be corrected in the next issue.

MICROMASTER 4 (MM4): Why do I encounter problems with current limit and overload when I use the same parameter set on a MM420 with 1.05 software and a MM420 with 1.17 software?Go to beginning
Part number:
Applies to: MM420


 The MM420 1.05 s/w allows you to set a value up to 400% in P0640 (Motor Overload Factor) independent of the rated motor current. This allows you to set the current limit at 8 times the rated motor current (400%).

This is incorrect and does not correspond to the other converters in the MM4 range.

The MM420 1.17 software has been updated to limit the current more accurately. If a high nominal current is set in P0305 then P0640 (Motor Overload Factor) will be limited.

If using DriveMonitor or Starter to transfer Parameters between 1.05 and 1.17 software MM420’s then a download error may be reported for Parameters P0305 and P0640. The solution will be to have 2 different parameter sets when operating with a mix of 1.05 and 1.17 software MM420’s.

Example:

Nominal Current x Motor Overload Factor = Maximum Inverter Current

On a 0.75 kW MM420 400V the nominal motor current is 2.1A, if this value is set in P0305 then P0640 can be set to 150% (2.1A x 150 = 3.1A). However if a higher value is set in P0305 then P0640 will be limited i.e. if P0305 is set to 3.0A then the Motor Overload Factor will be limited to 103.3% (3.0A x 103.3 = 3.1A). The maximum current from the inverter is limited to that in r0209, which is now a level 2 parameter in s/w 1.17.

What are the differences in the parameters of the MICROMASTER 4 [FW2.11] to those of the SINAMICS G120/G120D [FW3.x]?Go to beginning
Part number:

The parameter structure of the SINAMICS G120/G120D is based on that of its predecessor - the MICROMASTER 4th generation – and represents a consequential further development.

The parameter structures of the MM4 and G120/G120D have essentially remained the same. When compared to the MM4, the G120/G120D offers users far more functions. The realization and handling of these new functions is associated with certain changes to parameters that have had to be made.

An essential change is also due to the fact that the G120/G120D has a modular structure. For G120/G120D, there are various types of control modules (CUs) that have different functions and communication interfaces.

A comparison between all of the parameters of the last software version of MM440 (FW2.11) and all of the parameters of the current software versions of all G120 and G120D control modules is provided in the attached Excel List.

The Excel List is described in detail in the PDF file and information is given how you can handle the Excel List.

The Excel List contains all of the parameters of the MM440 FW2.11 and the following Control Units of the G120/G120D:

- CU240E FW3.1
- CU240S FW3.0
- CU240S DP FW3.0
- CU240S PN FW3.1
- CU240S DP-F FW3.0
- CU240S PN-F FW3.1
- CU240D DP FW3.0
- CU240D PN FW3.1

MICROMASTER 4 (MM4): What firmware releases have there been to date on the MM420 inverter?Go to beginning
Part number:

Applies to:    MM420

There have been 2 firmware releases - 1.04 (Gamma release) and 1.05 (1st production release).

The firmware version of each inverter can be read in level 1 parameter r0018.
The level 3 parameter r0964, and indexed parameter contains further detail about the firmware version - the company, product type, firmware version and firmware date - see the description for r0964 in the Reference Manual.

The changes from version 1.04 to 1.05 are as follows:

1. Minimum frequency operation fixed

Software V1.04: - If Fmin P1080 not = 0Hz, then the inverter would get the motor direction wrong when the frequency setpoint was of a different sign to the present output frequency and its value was between 0Hz and Fmin.
e.g. Fmin = 0Hz
Setpoint = -5Hz
Output frequency = +10Hz instead of -10Hz

Software V1.05: - This problem has been corrected by taking the hysteresis off Fmin.

2. Switching frequency change for thermal protection now 4kHz (previously 2kHz)

Software V1.04: - If the output frequency < 2Hz for more than 500ms, then the pulse frequency is set to nominal pulse frequency / 2.
i.e. 230V inverter, Pfnom = 16kHz
If output frequency < 2Hz, then pulse frequency is set to 16/2 = 8kHz
400V inverter, Pfnom = 4kHz
If output frequency < 2Hz, then pulse frequency is set to 4/2 = 2Hz

Software V1.05: - If output frequency < 2Hz for more than 500ms then the pulse frequency us set to nominal pulse frequency / 2, but the result is clamped to a minimum value of 4kHz.
i.e. 230V inverter, Pfnom = 16kHz
If output frequency < 2Hz, then the pulse frequency is set to 16/2 = 8kHz
400V inverter, Pfnom - 4kHz
If output frequency < 2Hz, then PULSE FREQUENCY STAYS AT 4kHz.

3. P2268: now allows minimum value of PI feedback to be negative

Software V1.04: - Minimum value of PID feedback P2268 could not be negative
i.e. PID feedback limits could not be set to -100% to +100%, only 0% to 100%

Software V1.05: - Minimum value of PID feedback can either be positive or negative
i.e. PID feedback limits can now be set to -100% to +100%
