In addition to this manual you can use documentation for products supported by Drives Window. Supported products are listed in Appendix A. Listed below are the terms and conventions which have special meaning throughout this manual. Actual signals refer to the variables which the ABB product measures or calculates. These signals are also commonly termed ‘feedback’ signals. The communication driver is a part of the Drives Window program which handles all of the communications with a product. The communication driver passes the data between Drives Window and the ABB product through the communication link. The communication link is the data bus which is used for communication between the Drives Window program and the ABB product. The DDCS (Distributed Drive Communication System) link is a high speed fibre optic data bus (communication link) dedicated for ABB drives. Related Publications Conventions Used in This Manual Actual Signals Communication Driver Communication Link DDCS Link Chapter 1 - Introduction Drives Window User’s Manual 1 - 3 The default drive is the active drive currently being used as the targetdevice for Drives Window. The default drive can be set using any of the drive selection commands in Drives Window. Parameters are operating instructions for the drive program; they are organized in logical parameter groups. Parameter values can be downloaded, uploaded, saved to a file, viewed, and changed with the use of Drives Window. The reference is an operating instruction to define e. g. the rotational speed or torque at the shaft of the motor. The Symbol Table is created by the AdvaBuild Function Chart Builder (FCB) program. The items (symbols) of the symbol table can be function block inputs or outputs in the drives application program. The commands sent by Drives Window are sent to an ABB product which is called the target device. The Drives Panel and each tool have designated target devices. The target device of a tool is the default product selected when the tool is started. For example, if you open a new Signals and Parameters Tool window, it will display the signals and parameters of the current default device. The target device of the Drives Panel is always the current default. The target driver is a part of the Drives Window program which takes care of all the target dependent parts of Drives Window. Default Drive Parameters Reference Symbol Table Target Device Target Driver Chapter 1 - Introduction 1 - 4 Drives Window User’s Manual This page is intentionally left blank. Drives Window User’s Manual 2 - 1 Chapter 2 - Overview of Drives Window This chapter provides a quick summary of the functions and operation of the Drives Window program. Drives Window consists of several independent parts: the User Interface, the Target Drivers, and the Communication Drivers. With this component structure, enhanced flexibility is achieved to enable you to work with several different types of products through different target and communication drivers. The look and feel of the Drives Window program remains the same even when the product changes. The User Interface of Drives Window allows you to access the main functions of the program. The program follows the common user interface guidelines for Windows program. The Target Driver includes all of the target-dependent information. The program identifies the type of the target device and starts the corresponding target driver automatically during initialization. You can even work with different types of products at the same time due to the component structure of Drives Window. Drives Window can be used with different communication links. The types of communication drivers you can use are defined by the target device. All you need is the hardware for connecting the PC to the communication link and the respective communication driver. Drives Window offers you several functions for commissioning and monitoring ABB products. All of the functions are available from the main Menubar or Toolbar of the program. This manual also describes other access methods for the functions (See Chapter: User Interface). In Drives Window there are two special displays and six tools: Special Displays Tools System Configuration Signals and Parameters Tool Drives Panel Monitoring Tool Data Logger Tool Event Logger Tool Fault Logger Tool Application Tool You can work with several drives using several tools at the same time. Each time a tool is started a new tool window is created. Overview Program Structure User Interface Target Driver Communication Driver Drives Window Functions Chapter 2 - Overview of Drives Window 2 - 2 Drives Window User’s Manual The System Configuration display provides you with an overview of the system as well as the type and status of each product on the communication link(s). Included in the System Configuration display are also the previously saved files located on the hard disk of the computer. By double-clicking on a specific file, the corresponding Drives Window tool is started to display the contents of the file. The Drives Panel is used for controlling the operation of a selected drive within the system. You can control different drives by changing the target drive selection. Commands available with the Drives Panel depend on the currently active target. Usually there are the following commands with the Panel: • Start and Stop • Set the speed reference • Change the reference direction (forward/reverse for AC-drives) • Reset the active fault • Change the control between Drives Window and external control location • Step In addition to these, there may be target dependant command buttons, for example Coast Stop (ACS 600 MultiDrive) and Homing (ACS 600 Motion Control). Different Drives Panels are described in the Appendix B. The Signals and Parameters Tool is used for selecting signals, parameters, and application symbols used for monitoring. You can also set the parameter values in either off-line and on-line mode. Several Signal and Parameter Tool windows for one or multiple drives can be used at the same time. When started, either the whole Parameter table or only the group headings are loaded depending on the option set. The Monitoring Tool is used for trending the actual values of the target graphically. Also the following functions are supported: • Zoom-In and Zoom-Out • Scaling the graphs • Setting the Sample Interval • Setting the length of the visible screen • Triggering on specific conditions • Scrolling the Monitor History • Adding a synchronized reference graph to the Monitor View System Configuration Display Drives Panel Signals and Parameters Tool Monitoring Tool Chapter 2 - Overview of Drives Window Drives Window User’s Manual 2 - 3 • Saving the Monitor View and the History as it is The Data Logger Tool provides facilities for viewing the contents of the data loggers in the drive. You can display the data in either graphical or numerical form. The contents of different data loggers are displayed in separate windows. Data loggers are useful for exact measurements with high frequencies. The contents of the event logger in the drive can be viewed and cleared by using the Event Logger Tool. The contents of the fault logger in the drive can be viewed and cleared using the Fault Logger Tool. Application programs are developed by using a separate programming tool. AdvaBuild Function Chart Builder is used for developing ABB drive application programs. Drives Window can be used for controlling, downloading, and debugging the application programs. Controlling application programs refers to starting and stopping the execution of the program inside the target device.

You can open as many tools as you want, depending on how much memory is available on your computer. Each tool that you open is displayed in a separate window, which is listed on the Window menu. The window you are currently working in is called the active window and the tool you are working in is called the active tool. Most of the commands or actions you carry out affect only the active tool. From the Window menu you can choose the window you want to make active. Also you can use keyboard command (Ctrl+TAB) to change the active window. Window menu also offers functions for organizing a set of open windows. From the Options menu, the User Interface can be customized to the users’ preference in two fashions: Confirmations and Status Messages. Drives Window can be configured to confirm the users' actions for the following situations: • Drive Start • Drive Stop • Drive Fault Resetting • Drive Reference Change • Parameter Download • Switching to On-line Mode • Parameter Value change in On-line Mode Statusbar Using the Keyboard Working with Multiple Windows Customization Confirmations Chapter 4 - User Interface 4 - 4 Drives Window User’s Manual When selected, Drives Window will prompt the user to confirm that the action is to be taken before issuing the command. Similar to the Confirmation configuration, the status of the drive can alert the user when certain conditions are detected. These conditions include: • Faults • Warnings When selected, Drives Window will alert the user when a certain condition is detected. Status query can also be turned off or used only with the Drives Panel. If the communication load is very high, status is automatically queried only for the default target. The Drives Window checks whether the target version corresponds with the application version in the following cases, • download parameter values • compare parameter values • reload saved data logger data • open a symbol table • download an application if there is differences between the versions data the Drives Window prompts a confirmation that you really want to continue. Note: In some version conflict the Drives Window can totally prevent the action. You can save open Tools with their settings using Save Workspace function in the File menu. A saved workspace can be read using Load Workspace. Device Status Version Checking Workspace Saving and Loading Drives Window User’s Manual 5 - 1 Chapter 5 - System Configuration The System Configuration Display is the main window of the Drives Window program. This display is entered automatically when you first start the program. All the drives found on the communication links are shown with their respective status information. Also, previously saved files that are located in your working directory are shown on the display under FILES directory. This chapter describes the status information and symbols used in the System Configuration Display. The functions of the System Configuration Display are also explained. The configuration of the drive system is displayed in the Tree List of the System Configuration Display. The available information displayed depends on the communication link(s) used. Figure 5 - 1 shows an example of a DDCS-communication link. The target devices (drives) for each channel are displayed in hierarchical order. Figure 5 - 1 System Configuration Display The Tree line displays the hierarchy of the system. The plus or minus symbol indicates if the tree items are expanded (shown) or collapsed (hidden). Overview System Configuration Display Tree Line Status Text Tree line Status Icon Chapter 5 - System Configuration 5 - 2 Drives Window User’s Manual Status Icon represents the status of the target device. Table 5 - 1 Status Icon Tables Status Icon Meaning RUNNING Forward ⇒ Reverse ⇒ The Target Device is running. STOPPED The Target Device is stopped. FAULTED The Target Device has a fault. WARNING: Stopped ⇒ Running ⇒ The Target Device has an active warning. Unknown Status ⇒ The Status Query is not on and the Status of the Target Device is unknown. Status Text displays the station number, name, type, and status of the target device in text form. Colors also differ: red indicates a fault and yellow a warning. Note: The state STOPPING uses the same icon as RUNNING and DISABLED uses the same icon as STOPPED (with the status text in red). This section describes how to perform the functions of System Configuration display. A plus or minus before an item indicates that the item has subordinate levels. A plus indicates that the subordinate list is collapsed whereas a minus indicates that it is expanded. The subordinate levels can thus be displayed or hidden by clicking the plus (+) or minus (-) sign on the Drive List. In order to expand or collapse the display, none of the individual items in the subordinate list can be selected. Status Icon Status Text How To... Expand and/or Collapse the Drive List Chapter 5 - System Configuration Drives Window User’s Manual 5 - 3 The status of each drive is displayed using an icon as well as a text string. The Table 5 - 1 explains the icons and the texts used. As the default, the Drives Window program updates the status information for all connected devices periodically, e. g. with DDCS Communication twice a second. You can, however, set only the Drives Panel status be updated or disable the status updating altogether by options on Device Status dialogue. To display the Drives Status dialogue select Device Status from the Options menu. If a drive in the system declares a fault or warning, the user is informed of the condition by a fault or warning message box. This message box can be disabled by deselecting the Fault/Warning messages option from the Options/Drive Status menu. From the fault/warning message box, you can reset the fault or view the fault logger. Note: If you want only the Drives Panel be updated, then only the currently active Target's faults and warnings are notified. If you want to display only the drives that you are working with, you can do that by selecting the Select Drives... command from the System menu. The following dialogue is displayed: Figure 5 - 2 Select Drives dialogue. Creating a set out of the connected Targets is useful when you have too many Targets connected to update the status of them all or you can't see the Targets you want to observe at the same time in the System Configuration Window. Before starting any of the tools you must first select the drive you want work with, which is called the default drive. This is done by clicking on the drive in the System Configuration Display or by using the Select command from the Drive menu. As the default, the first Target of the first communication channel is chosen. View Status Information Update the Status Display View Faults and Warnings Messages Select Drives Select the Default Drive Chapter 5 - System Configuration 5 - 4 Drives Window User’s Manual You can view saved files from the System Configuration window by selecting the file name from the FILES directory. Drives Window will then load the contents of the file and show it in the respective tool. Any of the Drives Window tools can be started from the System Configuration Display. A tool will be started for the default drive by using the commands available in the Tools menu or by clicking a tool button on the toolbar. Another way to start a tool is to click the right mouse button in the System Configuration window and then select a tool command from the pop-up menu. You can give a specific name for each drive. The name are displayed next to the drive number in the status text. By means of the File Upload command on the Drive menu you can upload the predefined files from the Target. By means of the File Download command in the same menu you can download a file to a selected Target. Note: Always use this command according to instructions given in your product ,anual. You can save the System Configuration to a file by selecting the Save As. . . command from File menu while the System Configuration window is active. If you have made changes to the configuration settings the Drives Window asks you to confirm that you want to save the changes when you quit the program. Choose the Yes button to save the settings. The System Configuration file extension is .dwc. After a Target is connected, a Parameter and Signal table may be loaded for it. The loading of the table takes automatically place in the beginning of the initialization of the first tool for the target (e.g. signals and parameters tool). You can reload the contents of the Parameter and Signal table by using Reload Parameter and Signal Table command from the Drive menu.Reload the contents of the Parameter and Signal table is necessary in the following cases: • A new application is downloaded (the construction of the AMC table is changed). • The PASS CODE is changed. • A macro is changed. • The display language of the table is changed. • You have changed the option "Take the Whole Parameter Table" Load a Saved File Start Another Tool Give a Name for the Drive File Upload File Download Save System Configuration to a File Reload Parameter and Signal Table Chapter 5 - System Configuration Drives Window User’s Manual 5 - 5 Note: When you reload the contents of the table all the open Signals and Parameters tools, Monitors and Data Loggers of this Target will be closed. If you change the PC connection or remove a drive from the PC connection, you must reidentify network. You must close all of the open Tools before issuing this command. Network reidentification also takes automatically place if you reconfigure any of the communication links. Reidentify Network Chapter 5 - System Configuration 5 - 6 Drives Window User’s Manual This page is intentionally left blank. Drives Window User’s Manual 6 - 1 Chapter 6 - Drives Panel This chapter describes how to control the ABB product from the Drives Window with the Drives Panel. The Drives Panel may be different with different Targets: refer to Appendix B to have more information about different ABB drives. The Drives Panel is used for controlling the operation of the drive. You can start and stop the drive, change the direction of rotation and step and adjust the reference value. In case the drive trips on a fault, you can reset the fault from the Drives Panel. It is possible to control several drives from the Drives Panel. The Drives Window helps you in controlling the drive by giving you some warnings. For example, if you try to start a drive in fault condition, the Drives Window prompts you to first reset the fault. The warnings depend on the type of the drive you are controlling. Here is an example of the Drives Panel for the ACS 600 MultiDrive: Figure 6 - 1 Drives Panel You can display or hide the Drives Panel by selecting the Drives Panel command from the View menu, by clicking the Drives Panel ( ) button on the toolbar or by first clicking the right mouse button and then selecting the Drives Panel command from the pop-up menu.

Drives Window User’s Manual C - 1 APPENDIX C - CDW.INI file Drives Window v1.2 reads through, when started, the CDW.INI file which is during the Drives Window installation created in the WINDOWS directory. In the CDW.INI file there are two sections handling the Target identification First, there is a section called [TargetDrivers] in which a Target Driver DLL for each Target type is set. Names used must match the real product names, i.e. if an ACS600 is renamed to be something like GCC600 it must appear as an ACS600 in the [TargetDrivers] section. Each Target type must have its own line, like ACS600=C:\ABBTOOLS\DRIWIN\DWACS600.DLL In case a product is sold with a special name Drives Window must be made aware of the change before the Target can be identified. For this purpose there is a [TargetEquals] section in the CDW.INI file. In this section specific names are identified with actual product names. For example, previously mentioned GCC600 requires line GCC600=ACS600 just under the [TargetEquals] heading. As products following names are defined: • ACS600 Standard or Freely Programmable • ACN600 ACS600 MultiDrive Inverter • ACF600 ACS600 Pump and Fan Drive • ACP600 ACS600 Motion Drive Of these names Drives Window uses only the first four (4) letters. Thus ACS601 and ACS602 would get the similar handling.

Drives Window User’s Manual D- 1 APPENDIX D - DDCS Communication to see and change the communication channel settings for automatic node numbering of the target devices on the channel Logical channel number of the Communication Channel is shown on the caption. Channels are numbered during initialization, starting from 0. In the information group you can see the text which identifies the channel hardware. In the Options group you can see the DDCC chip settings; these are not changeable. DDCS Communication Channel Dialog Use the Communication Channel Dialog ... Communication Channel Dialog Caption Information Group Options Group APPENDIX D D- 2 Drives Window User’s Manual In the Rate group you can see the baud rate used on the channel. The speed may be set in steps 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, of the max speed, or the max speed. Currently the max speed is 8 MBPS, i.e. steps are 1, 2, 4, 8 MBPS respectively. The default 1 MBPS is used. Note: To change the actual communication speed, you have to change the speed on each of the devices connected to the channel. Changing the Link Rate only from this dialog stops channel operation. In the Beam Intensity group you can see and change the optical transmitter beam intensity in 15 steps. You may use the radiobuttons in the group “Default by cable length” to select intensity according to the length of the optical cable connected to channel in PC. Cable lengths on the dialog match lengths with plastic fibre: • Short: length < 5m • Medium: length 5 ... 10m • Long: length 10 ... 15m Note: Setting a too small Beam Intensity stops channel operation. Two kinds of channel node configurations are supported: 1. All nodes in one Loop 2. A star built with NDBU-91 Branching Units on top of each other channels. These two configurations cannot be mixed. Check this box to perform an automatic node numbering for the channel. Channel type will be searched, and numbering will proceed according to the detected hardware. Link Rate Group Beam Intensity Group Auto Node Numbering Checkbox APPENDIX D Drives Window User’s Manual D- 3 Background and Preparations: Node numbers of NDBU-91 Branching Units are set by DIP switches on the boards. Numbers must be in descending order starting from closest one to PC. E.g. each NDBU-91 must have a number which is smaller than any other NDBU-91 higher in the hierarcy. Max NDBU-91 node number set is 124, min 76. Each NDBU-91 reserves two node numbers. Node number in the area 76-127 is not allowed to be used for target nodes. Auto Node Numbering will renumber target nodes to 2 ... 75, 128 ... 254 The maximum count 25 of NDBU-91 units allow 24*8 + 9 = 201 target nodes. DDCS Communication will prompt you for confirmation to proceed and notify when done. Nodes are renumbered to 2 ... 254 DDCS Communication will prompt you for confirmation to proceed and notify when done. Note: After Auto Node Numbering, the count should always be compared to existing node count. Note: Auto Node Numbering will take some time, depending on the configuration. Note: Automatic node numbers are not permanent: number does not remain after power-down of the node. Buttons OK Use currently shown settings to configure channel.
