Written by plc247.com

Siemens S7-1200 PLC and Sinamics V20 inverter are devices commonly used in many machines around the world. Today plc247.com will guide you to control Sinamics V20 VFD through Modbus RTU (RS485) Communication.

Sinamics V20 has a built-in RS485 port, and for S7-1200 we need to use an additional expansion module S7-1200 CB1241 (or CM1241).

Siemens Sinamics V20 Modbus RTU Setting

In order for the Siemens Sinamics V20 inverter to communicate with Modbus RTU, we set the following communication parameters:

Registers for Control

Note: S7-1200 Modbus Address
= “VFD Address (dec) + 40001”

>>> Motor Control Address = 40001 + 99 = 40100

+ Set Word 40100 = 1151 >>> Forward Run
= 3199 >>> Reverse Run

+ Set Word 40100 = 1150 >>> Stop

+ Set Word 40100 = 1278 >>> VFD Reset

>>> Frequency Reference Address = 40001 + 100 = 40101

Register for Monitoring

+ Frequency Output Address = 40024

+ Speed Output Address = 40025

+ Current Output Address = 40026
