Issue

Does the Modbus XDriver interface with the ATV212 speed drive?

Product Line

Environment

Continuum

Modbus XDriver

Cause

Unable to get Modbus RTU communications working with the ATV212 drive.

Resolution

Unfortunately, this does not work. The Modbus XDriver's cannot reference the large number address range that the ATV212 uses (above 64,000).

 

A workaround for this would be to use the BACnet MSTP interface available on the ATV212 to establish communications.
