Chapter 1 Overview
The purpose of this Quick Start Guide is to provide an overview of the steps necessary to successfully connect
the F800 Series Variable Frequency Drive to a BACnet MS/TP network.
A third party software tool from Polar Soft, Inc. titled Bacbeat will be utilized to demonstrate some of the
commonly used control and monitoring instructions.
Refer to the F800-NA Instruction Manual IB(NA)-0600547ENG manual for complete details.

Chapter 2 Wiring
BACnet MS/TP communications is only available using the RS485 Screw Terminals.
Both 4-wire and 2-wire connection types are available. Actual type used in dependent upon the control master
utilized.
Each inverter is supplied standard with a 100 ohm terminating resistor. It is recommended that 510 ohm
terminating resistors be utilized for 2-wire connection and when only multiple F700 VFD’s are used.

Chapter 3 VFD Parameter Configuration
To enable BACnet MS/TP communications, it is necessary to change parameter values from the factory settings.
The number of parameters requiring change and their actual setting values is dependent upon the actual
network configuration.

3.1 BACnet MS/TP specific parameters

3-1

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
3.2 Required Parameter Settings

3.2.1. BACet Protocol Selection

• Pr. 549 “Protocol selection” MUST be set to 2 to select BACnet protocol


Important Note: Parameter setting made valid after inverter reset

3.2.2. BACnet Device ID (Instance)

• Pr.728 and Pr.729 BACnet Device ID (Instance) MUST be set in Multi-Inverter


Applications

These two parameters are what creates the BACnet Device ID (Instance). Each Inverter must
have its own unique number setting. These must be set before connecting to the BACnet
network.

When the BACnet master discovers what is connect to the BACnet network the master
software will show the FR-8x0-3 # (Pr.728 and Pr.729). x = 2 (200V) ,4 (400V), and 6 (600V)
input voltage rating of the inverter.

3.3 Recommended Parameter Settings

The communication settings must match that of the BACnet Master Controller.

• Pr. 331 “RS-485 communication station number” set to 2 or higher


Avoid setting 0 and 1 as these may be dedicated to network masters

• Pr. 336 “RS-485 communication check time” set to 9999

3-2

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
• Pr. 340 “Communication startup mode selection” set to 10
If start/stop and speed commands will come from network master, setting 10 forces the VFD to
power up in NET mode.
• Pr. 79 “Operation mode selection” set to 6

Operation mode can be switched between NET and PU mode by pressing key

3.4 Communication Port Parameter Settings


Other than baud rate, the settings are fixed. The master controller and any other network nodes must
be configured to match these settings.

3.4.1.Baud Rate Setting


The baud rate can selected using two methods, Fixed or Automatic detection

3.4.1.1. Fixed Method


Pr. 332 “RS-485 Communication Speed”

Important Note: Parameter setting made valid after inverter reset

3.4.1.2. Automatic Detection Method


Pr. 726 “Auto Baudrate/Max Master”

Important Note: Parameter setting made valid after inverter reset

3.4.2. Bacbeat Emulation Software Port Configuration Example

Using communication port 1 of the PC


Baudrate = 38,400
Parity = None (N)
Data length = 8 bit
Stop bit = 1 bit

Chapter 4 Messaging Examples
This chapter will demonstrate some of the commonly used commands using Bacbeat emulation software.
The F800 series supports the following BACnet object types

4.1 BACnet Objects in F800


• ANALOG INPUT

• ANALOG OUTPUT

4-1

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
• ANALOG VALUE

4-2

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
• ANALOG VALUE

• BINARY INPUTS

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
• BINARY VALUE

4-5

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
4.2 VFD Start / Stop Command
Use the BINARY VALUE object type 400 and write 1 to run the VFD. Write 0 to stop

4.3 VFD Speed Command


Use the ANALOG VALUE object type 300 and write the command speed in percentage.
The 100% speed value in Hz is located in Pr. 390 “% setting reference frequency”

To command 30Hz output, write 50(%)

4-6

R72-172-SLSASG-001-*
4.4 Monitoring
This example will show how to monitor the Converter Output Voltage (the DC bus) in the VFD.
Use the ANALOG VALUE object type 8 to read the DC bus voltage.

The read value from the VFD in this example is 297.2 VDC
