Connecting and Setting Up the MicroMaster Series 4 Drive

To make the connection to the MicroMaster Series 4 (MM4) drive, insert the ends of the RS-485 cable into the two caged
clamp, screwless terminals provided for USS operation. The standard PROFIBUS cable and connectors can be used to
connect the S7-200.
Interconnecting equipment with different reference potentials can cause unwanted currents
to flow through the interconnecting cable.
These unwanted currents can cause communication errors or damage equipment.
Be sure all equipment that you are about to connect with a communications cable either
shares a common circuit reference or is isolated to prevent unwanted current flows
The shield must be tied to chassis ground or pin 1 on the 9-pin connector. It is
recommended that you tie terminal 2-0V on the MicroMaster drive to chassis ground.

As shown below, the two wires at the opposite end of the RS-485 cable must be inserted into the MM4 drive terminal blocks.
To make the cable connection on a MM4 drive, remove the drive cover(s) to access the terminal blocks. See the MM4 user
manual for details about how to remove the covers(s) of your specific drive.
The terminal block connections are labeled numerically. Using a PROFIBUS connector on the S7-200 side, connect the A
terminal of the cable to the drive terminal 15 (for an MM420) or terminal 30 (MM440). Connect the B terminal of the cable
connector to terminal 14 (MM420) or terminal 29 (MM440).
If the S7-200 is a terminating node in the network, or if the connection is point-to-point, it is necessary to use terminals A1
and B1 (not A2 and B2) of the connector since they allow the termination settings to be set (for example, with DP connector
type 6ES7 972-0BA40-0X40).

Make sure the drive covers are replaced properly before supplying power to the unit.

If the drive is configured as the terminating node in the network, then termination and bias resistors must be also be wired to
the appropriate terminal connections. The following example shows the connections necessary for termination and bias for
the MM4, model 6SE6420 drive.

Setting Up the MM4 Drive

Before you connect a drive to the S7-200, you must ensure that the drive has the following system parameters. Use the
keypad on the drive to set the parameters:

Reset the drive to factory settings (optional):P0010=30

If you skip this step, ensure that the following parameters are set to these values:
USS PZD length:
P2012 Index 0=2
USS PKW length:
P2013 Index 0=127


Enable the read/write access to all parameters (Expert mode):


Check motor settings for your drive:


P0304=Rated motor voltage (V)

P0305=Rated motor current (A)
P0307=Rated motor power (W)
P0310=Rated motor frequency (Hz)
P0311=Rated motor speed (RPM)
The settings will vary according to the motor(s) being used.
In order to set the parameters P304, P305, P307, P310, and P311, you must first set parameter P010 to 1 (quick
commissioning mode). When you are finished setting the parameters, set parameter P010 to 0. Parameters P304, P305,
P307, P310, and P311 can only be changed in the quick commissioning mode.


Set the local/remote control mode:


Set selection of frequency setpoint to USS on COM Link:

P0700 Index 0=5


Ramp up time (optional):

P1120=0 to 650.00
This is the time in seconds that it takes the motor to accelerate to maximum frequency.


Ramp down time (optional):

P1121=0 to 650.00
This is the time in seconds that it takes the motor to decelerate to a complete stop.


Set the serial link reference frequency:

P2000=1 to 650 Hz


Set the USS normalization:

P2009 Index 0=0

10. Set the baud rate of the RS-485 serial interface:

P1000 Index 0=5

P2010 Index 0 = 4 (2400 baud)

5 (4800 baud)
6 (9600 baud)
7 (19200 baud
8 (38400 baud)
9 (57600 baud)
12 (115200 baud)

11. Enter the Slave address:

P2011 Index 0=0 to 31
Each drive (a maximum of 31) can be operated over the bus.
12. Set the serial link timeout:

P2014 Index 0=0 to 65,535 ms

(0=timeout disabled)
This is the maximum permissible period between two incoming data telegrams. This feature is used to turn off the inverter
in the event of a communications failure. Timing starts after a valid data telegram has been received. If a further data
telegram is not received within the specified time period, the inverter will trip and display fault code F0070. Setting the
value to zero switches off the control. Use the Drive Scan Times Table. to calculate the time between the status polls to
the drive.

13. Transfer the data from RAM to EEPROM:

P0971=1 (Start transfer) Save the changes to parameter settings to EEPROM.
