Drive to Drive Communication

Drive to Drive communication is possible because the PLC functions in the FR-F800-E allows the master inverter to send commands for controlling multiple slave inverters connected to the Ethernet network. When the FR-F800-E is used with FR-Configurator2 software, users can search the network for connected drives, and establish a connection that allows for faster and easier network configurations, drive set-ups and system monitoring.

  • Direct connection to the TCP/IP network by cable or WiFi
  • System scan to identify FR-F800-E drives on the network
  • Full access to the drive for parameter adjustment and monitoring
  • Upload and download of PLC function program and parameter sets

  • Drive to Drive Networking
