Ingenia drive (JUP 40-80) needs a long time to start
Issue: It seems that the Ingenia drive (JUP 40-80) needs a long time before it can be enabled. Do you know about this symptom? Or do you have a any advice?
Suggestion and resolution:
If the drives that do not enable show that they are not ready in the DRIVE_STATUS, for example DRIVE_STATUS is 576 (10 0100 0000 in binary) the bits have the meaning shown below.
If only bits 6 and 9 are set, it is "Switch on Disabled" and "Remote". Before the drive can enable, the bits for "Quick Stop" and "Ready to Swtich On" must be set by the drive. When the CoE status word (DRIVE_STATUS) changes to 545 which is 10 0010 0001. So bits 0 and 5 are set, showing that it is ready. Then the EtherCAT master can enable the drive.
If there is a delay before the drive is ready, we suggest that the supplier, in this can Ingenia, should be contacted about it.
DRIVE_STATUS issue (EtherCAT CoE status word)
DRIVE_STATUS is the value of the CoE status word. Object number 0x6041. If bit 11 is set in the status in the drive then we must see the same in DRIVE_STATUS. If not then the drive is not setting the bit in Object 0x6041. You can check the object ...
Torque and speed control over EtherCAT
For most servo drives, set DRIVE_MODE in the MC_CONFIG. On EtherCAT startup, the Trio Master will set up the drive for the selected mode and set the ATYPE automatically. Some drives can change mode after EtherCAT startup. In the PDO you will see the ...

MC6N, 2 machines behave the same. They came up with Unit error, System error and axis status errors. Yaskawa Sigma 7 shjows A12 error. Set AUTO_ETHERCAT = 0 and start from the MAIN program after a time delay with ETHERCAT(0, 0) e.g. WA(20000) ' 20 ...
Ethercat drive disable problem with Panasonic A6B
Panasonic A6B EtherCAT servo drives have a ramp down to stop feature that is enabled by default. This means when the Master sets the control word to $06 (Disable) the drive will ramp down the speed to zero and only then disable the drive. This takes ...
Changing EtherCAT drive address
There are 3 methods to set the address in the servo-drive; 1 . If there are rotary address switches on the front of the drive, then they may be used to select the address. 2. The address may be set in memory, either via a front panel keypad or ...
