The pair of inverters INVT GD20 and HMI Proface GP4402WW are two devices that are used a lot in today’s machines. The low price and good quality make it the choice of many engineers.
Today plc247.com will write a tutorial for you to connect them together via Modbus RTU communication standard, both of these devices are built-in RS485.
INVT Goodrive20 & GP4402WW “Wiring Diagram”
INVT GD20 VFD Modbus RTU Configuration
To be able to control the inverter with Modbus RTU, you need to configure the same parameters (you can change some parameters but plc247.com recommends setting like this)
+ P00.01: 2 (Communication running command)
+ P00.06: 8 (The frequency is set by MODBUS)
+ P00.09: 0 (Select A frequency)
+ P14.00: 1 (Slave Number.1)
+ P14.01: 3 (9600bps)
Note: GP4402WW HMI Address = “400001 (dec) + Device Address”
Registers Control Address
>>> Control Address = 400001(dec) + 2000(hex)
= 400001(dec) + 8192(dec) = 408193
- Set Word 48193 = 1 >>> Forward Run
= 2 >>> Reverse Run
= 5 >>> Stop
>>> Frequency Set Address = 400001(dec) + 2001(hex)
= 400001(dec) + 8193(dec) = 408194
Registers Monitoring Address
>>> Output Frequency Address = 400001(dec) + 3000(hex)
= 400001(dec) + 12288(dec) = 412289
>>> Output Voltage Address = 400001(dec) + 3003(hex)
= 400001(dec) + 12291(dec) = 412292
>>> Output Current Address = 400001(dec) + 3004(hex)
= 400001(dec) + 12292(dec) = 412293
GP-ProEX Software Communication Setting
Set the same communication parameters as INVT GD20 VFD
