Topic: Arduino and Sew Movitrac (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I have to do a small project and i need some help from you
I whant to connect an arduino uno with a sew movitrac to control the speed of a motor
Can anyone help ne with the schematic and some form of code?



Probably not.
You could have provided some more information.
Like what a "sew movitrac" is.

And what options you have available at that frequency inverter.
It's not unlikely that you will need an addition to your Uno, like a ethernet shield or some fieldbus or other serial communication solution.

As you "have to" do this, it's very likely that this is some school project.
Do you get through all your projects by asking others to do them for you ?
If so, how's the learning going ?

Bottom line:
Provide more useful information, and do some work yourself, don't ask others to do it for you.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

for those who dont know what a sew movitrac is, it is an inverter

i want to drive a very large 3 phase motor with arduino
if you want to take a look https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFctyWleDSY
is for my on personal use
i found something like i whant on youtube but it doesnt say anything about the project
I have an ideea but i dont know all the details about the connection betwin arduino and inverter


There are many many models of Movitrac.  For instance the brochure entry for Movitrac B
controllers lists control protocols as:

Code: [Select]

CANopen Yes Yes
DeviceNet Optional Optional
EtherCAT Optional Optional
Ethernet/IP Optional Optional
Modbus TCP Optional Optional
PROFIBUS DPV1 Optional Optional
PROFINET IO Optional Optional

i have an MC07A008-2b1-4-00
I think i have to do the connection on x10


Hi, yes your control will be via terminal strip X10, depending on what you want to do, either using the I/O or BUS is up to you.

If you use the I/O then you will be switching Inputs to the 24Vdc rail, so I'd suggest opto coupling for those, i have used SEW before but not using BUS control.
