Controlling multiple inverters in one plant, or controlling
and remote inverter parameter monitoring is a problem we often encounter. Therefore, the inverters are usually equipped with RS485 port to support Modbus RTU communication (supports 1 control network up to 32 slaves and 1200m distance).
Today plc247.com will guide you to use the Siemens S7-1200 PLC to control the LS iG5A inverter via Modbus-RTU communication.
Communication Configuration LS iG5A VFD
Communication parameters we need to set
The parameters I set in the project:
+ Drv = 3
+ Frq = 7
+ I59 = 0
+ I60 = 1
+ I61 = 3
+ I62 = 0
+ I65 = 2
