Connection and Parameter Setting
1.4.5
Connection through GOT (FA transparent function)
Using FA transparent function of GOT1000 series, connecting inverter to FR Configurator is available through GOT.
FA transparent function enables reading, writing and monitoring of programmable controller of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation
through GOT, while connecting Mitsubishi programmable controller and PC.
Serial port or USB is used for connecting between FR Configurator and GOT. RS-422 is used for connecting between GOT
and inverter.

The number of connectable inverters depends on the GOT. Refer to GOT1000 series connection manual for details of RS-422
connection and compatible version of GOT.
Note
Do not perform the following operation during FA transparent function is valid and FR Configurator is ONLINE.
• Online operation (project download, etc.) from GT Designer/GT Designer2 to GOT
• Online operation to programmable controller CPU by using FA transparent function of GX Developer
When using FA transparent communication, communication error (Time Out) may occur when FR Configurator starts
communication during Time Out occurrence in GOT (when GOT is monitoring the inverter which is not connected). In
that case, set the Time Out value more than the following. (Refer to page 49)
Time Out value of GOT[s] x (Retry count of GOT + 1) x 3 x 1000[ms] (500ms increments)
If the value above is more than 30[s], make adjustment to "Time Out value"[s] and "Retry count" of GOT to make the
value above become less than 30[s]. Refer to page 49 for communication setting.

REMARKS
• When "1" is set in Pr. 342 Communication EEPROM write selection, the parameter setting set from FR Configurator is written into
RAM only (cannot be written to EEPROM).
Batch parameter settings can also be set to EEPROM regardless of the Pr. 342 Communication EEPROM write selection setting of
the inverter. Select [Options] in [Tool] menu to display "Option" window. (Refer to page 91) Click
, and check
"EEPROM write" in the preference setting window to write setting values into EEPROM for batch parameter writing.
If batch parameter write is performed while the checkbox is checked, the above display appears. Some parameter settings are
applied after a reset. After the batch writing, reset the inverter of which the parameter settings are written to, or turn OFF the
power once, then turn it ON again.
• When "Enable model check" is checked in Preference window, the following window appears before the All St. parameter write.
Select a behavior of parameter write for when the inverters set for system setting and the connected inverters are different. If
the model check is not necessary, uncheck "Enable model check" in Preference window. (Refer to page 92)
Note
• When changing some specific parameters (Pr. 21 Acceleration/deceleration, Pr. 71 Applied motor etc.) with FR Configurator,
setting value of related parameters may also change.
For example, if Pr. 21 Acceleration/deceleration time increments setting has been changed, the setting value of acceleration/
deceleration time parameters (Pr. 7, Pr. 8 etc.) also change. (When Pr. 21 ="0" and Pr. 7 = "5.0s", changing Pr. 21 setting
to "1" will automatically change the setting of Pr. 7 to "0.5s".)
If parameter writing is performed with All St. parameter write which causes a change of related parameters, please
perform All St. parameter read or batch read from Parameter List.
• When "Pr. 342 Communication EEPROM write selection = 1", the parameter settings from FR Configurator are written into
RAM only (the settings cannot be written into EEPROM). If the Pr. 342 setting is changed from "0" to "1" during batch
writing, only the settings of Pr. 77 Parameter write selection, Pr. 122 PU communication check time interval, Pr. 336 RS-485
communication check time interval are written into RAM (Pr. 77, Pr. 122, Pr. 336 settings cannot be written into EEPROM). In
this case, to change the setting value of Pr. 77, Pr. 122, Pr. 336, set from a parameter unit or the operation panel.
• All St. parameter setting may take longer than batch write/ batch read of Parameter List since FR Configurator
performs reading/writing to the all stations.
• According to the Pr.77 Parameter write selection and Pr.79 Operation mode selection settings, writing to Pr.122 PU
communication check time interval, Pr.336 RS-485 communication check time interval, and Pr.342 Communication EEPROM write
selection may fail during parameter batch write.

REMARKS
• When "1" is set in Pr. 342 Communication EEPROM write selection, the parameter setting set from FR Configurator is written into
RAM only (cannot be written to EEPROM).
Batch parameter settings can also be set to EEPROM regardless of the Pr. 342 Communication EEPROM write selection setting of
the inverter. Select [Options] in [Tool] menu to display "Option" window. (Refer to page 91) Click
, and check
"EEPROM write" in the preference setting window to write setting values into EEPROM for batch parameter writing.
If batch parameter write is performed while the checkbox is checked, the above display appears. Some parameter settings are
applied after a reset. After the batch writing, reset the inverter of which the parameter settings are written to, or turn OFF the
power once, then turn it ON again.
• If current value fields are empty when batch write is selected, below confirmation message appears. Click "
" to batch
write the current values.
Current value written
No value written
• With All St. parameter setting, batch writing from and batch reading to all the connected inverters are available. (Refer to page
103)
• When "Enable model check" is checked in Preference window, the inverter set for system setting and the connected inverter
are checked before the parameter batch write.
If the model check is not necessary, uncheck "Enable model check" in Preference window. (Refer to page 92)
Note
• When changing some specific parameters (Pr. 21 Acceleration/deceleration time increments, Pr. 71 Applied motor etc.) with FR
Configurator, setting values of the related parameters may also change.
For example, if the Pr. 21 setting has been changed, the setting value of acceleration/deceleration time parameters
(Pr. 7, Pr. 8, etc.) also change. (When Pr. 21 ="0", and Pr. 7 = "5.0s", and changing Pr. 21 setting to "1" will automatically
change the setting of Pr. 7 to "0.5s".)
If parameter writing is performed with
or if
or
or
which causes a change of related parameters,
is performed, the following dialog is displayed. Please perform update of
parameter display.
• When the Pr. 342 setting is changed from "0" to "1," only the settings of Pr. 77 Parameter write selection, Pr. 122 PU
communication check time interval, and Pr. 336 RS-485 communication check time interval are written into RAM (not written to
EEPROM). To change the Pr. 77, Pr. 122, and Pr. 336 settings, use the operation panel or the parameter unit.
• According to the Pr.77 Parameter write selection and Pr.79 Operation mode selection settings, writing to Pr.122 PU
communication check time interval, Pr.336 RS-485 communication check time interval, and Pr.342 Communication EEPROM write
selection may fail during parameter batch write.

• Pr. 160 Extended function display selection
• Pr. 900, 901 (FM, AM output terminal calibration)
• PU contrast adjustment (Pr. 991)
(3) The following parameters are adjustment parameters. Parameter readjustment according to the machine is
recommended after converting.
• Pr. 0 Torque boost
• Pr. 12 DC injection brake voltage
• Pr. 820, 821, 824, 825, 830, 831, 834, 835 (vector control, speed control/torque control gain)

• Pr. 919, 920, 928, 929 (torque/magnetic flux setting input calibration parameter)
(5) Communication related parameters (Pr. 117 to Pr. 124, Pr. 331 to Pr. 337, 341) are also converted. Depending on a setting,
communication may not be established after writing the parameter. For example, if Pr. 122 or Pr. 336 Communication check
time interval = "0" (initial value), changing to the command source operation mode causes a communication fault (E.PUE
or E.SER).

(4) When vector control is selected for the FR-V500 (L) series, check the following item.
• When offline auto tuning ( Pr. 71 Applied motor = "3, 4, 7, 8, 13, 14, 17, 18, 23, 24, 33, 34") is performed with the source
inverter, it is recommended to perform tuning and parameter setting again with the target inverter.
• Since the SF-VH motor compatible with the FR-V500L series is not supported by the FR-A700 series, make sure to
perform tuning and parameter setting again same as other manufacturer’s constant motors before use.

terminal of measured value signal from terminal 1 to terminal 4. Since terminal 4 is factory set to current input, any of
the following change is necessary in such a case.
1) Change to current input
2) When Pr. 262 = "2", set Switch 1 on board to OFF and change terminal 4 input to 0 to 10V input.

There is a change in the following functions. Refer to the FR-A700 series manual for details.
• When automatic restart after instantaneous power failure is performed with residual voltage detection system by TSEN50 ( Pr. 162 = "11"), it is changed to automatic restart after instantaneous power failure with reduced voltage
system. Fully check that there is no problem in automatic restart operation after instantaneous power failure. If there
are any problem, consider changing to f search system, etc.
• Y29 (acceleration speed detection) signal is deleted, and major fault by E.OS occurs instead.
• When stop position command of orientation control was given from the FR-A5AX ( Pr. 360 = "1"), orientation with the
number of encoder pulses (Pr. 369) 1025 to 2047, or 2049 to 4059 is not supported by Convert.
• Since convert is performed using the full scale value of the motor torque as 200%, the full scale value of the load meter
is converted as 200% (FR-A500 (L) series is 100%). Use Pr. 866 to change. In such a case, note that the full scale

REMARKS
• When the main circuit capacitor life is measured under the following conditions, "forced end" (Pr. 259 = "8") or "measuring error"
(Pr. 259 = "9") occurs or it remains in "measuring start" (Pr. 259 = "1"). Therefore, do not measure in such case. Proper
measurement is not performed when "measuring" (Pr. 259 = "3") appears under the following conditions.
(a) FR-HC, MT-HC, FR-CV, or a sine wave filter is connected
(b) Terminals R1/L11, S1/L21 or DC power supply is connected to the terminal P/+ and N/-.
(c) The power supply is switched ON during measurement.
(d) The motor is not connected to the inverter.
(e) The motor is running (coasting)
(f) The motor capacity is two ranks smaller as compared to the inverter capacity.
(g)The inverter is tripped or a fault occurred when power is OFF.
(h) The inverter output is shut off with the MRS signal.
(i) The start command is given while measuring.
(j) The parameter unit (FR-PU04/FR-PU07) is connected (FR-D700, E700, F700PJ series only)
(k) Terminal PC is used as power supply (FR-D700, E700(SC), F700PJ series only)
(l) An I/O terminal of the control terminal block or the plug-in option is ON (continuity) (FR-D700, E700, F700PJ series only)
(m)A plug-in option is fitted. (only for the 0.75K or less of the FR-E700(SC) series)
(n) Test operation is being performed. (Pr.800 = "9") (FR-A700, F700P, F700PJ series only)
(o) "EV" is displayed on the operation panel. (The main circuit power supply is OFF and the 24V external power supply is
ON.) (When using the safety stop function model with FR-E7DS mounted.)

REMARKS
• For starting with analog data
If the trigger condition has already met when

exceeds more than the setting of "Level" when "Rise" is selected, or when the value falls lower than the setting of "Level" when
"Fall" is selected.
Example: when trigger starts at "Rise", and "3" is set for Level
If the value is already 4 at sampling start, then this case does not meet trigger condition. If the value lower than 3 exceeds more
than 3, then the case meets trigger condition, and starts sampling.

Machine Analyzer (Monitor Area) (FR-A700, A701 with Vector Control)
4.13 Machine Analyzer (Monitor Area) (FR-A700, A701 with Vector
Control)
Machine analyzer reads and analyzes the torque and speed data when the inverter oscillates the motor at random torque for
about 0.5 to 4s.
This allows measuring of the response frequency characteristic of speed relative to the motor torque of the machine so that
you can grasp the frequency at which the mechanical system has the resonance point.
The analyzed data can be saved in a file (Export). And the saved data can be read (Import) and displayed. (Refer to page 94)
Select [Machine Analyzer] under [View] menu to display "Machine Analyzer" window.
Note
• The Machine Analyzer function is available only for the system that can perform vector control with an encoder (FRA7AP/FR-A7AL required).
• Machine Analyzer will not work in the following cases.
• Inverter running
• When the second motor is selected (Pr. 450 is not "9999")
• When the control mode is other than the vector control mode (Pr. 800 is not "0 to 5")
• Modbus-RTU communication is selected (Pr. 549 = "1")
• If a motor shaft is locked when performing Machine Analyzer, correct data may not be obtained, forced to end Machine
Analyzer. Check the load applied to the motor beforehand.
Before starting Machine Analyzer operation, set the oscillation conditions and oscillation mode.

Machine Analyzer (Monitor Area) (FR-A700, A701 with Vector Control)
Procedure of Machine Analyzer operation
(1) Set Stml condition.
• "% of rated Torque" ........ Set the maximum oscillation torque for oscillating the motor under a random
torque command. (Setting range: 1 to 100%)
• "Stroke" .......................... Set the rotation range permitted for oscillation, beginning at the motor position
when Machine Analyzer is started. If this range is exceeded, Machine analyzer is
stopped immediately, and the motor is coasted in the vertical shaft mode or is
coasted after deceleration in the normal mode. (Setting range:  to 1000)
REMARKS
• If a measuring result varies, accurate measuring may not have been acquired.
• Accurate measuring may not be acquired in a mechanical system whose oscillation torque is too small or whose friction is
large. In such a case, increase the oscillation torque and restart Machine Analyzer.
• If the oscillation torque is too large relative to the load inertia moment, an overcurrent or similar alarm may occur. At that time,
reduce the oscillation torque and restart Machine Analyzer.
• Starting oscillation automatically switches to the torque control mode and shifts the position. Before starting operation after
oscillation, therefore, always return to a home position.
(2) Select the Stml mode
• "Normal mode" ............. The inverter operates in the torque control mode and oscillates the motor
randomly.
• "Vertical Axis Mode" ..... A servo lock is placed in the speed control mode, preventing a fall. Gain setting
must have been acquired to ensure that stable servo lock operation will be
performed.
REMARKS
In "Vertical Axis Mode"
• The accuracy of 100Hz or less on the low frequency side may become poor.
• The measuring accuracy becomes poor if the position loop gain (Pr. 422) is set too high.
Note
When the machine is a vertical shaft, always perform this function in the "Vertical Axis Mode" since a fall may occur.

The following screen appears when the "Vertical Axis Mode" is selected.
Click [Cancel] button to return to the Machine Analyzer setting window.
Click [OK] button to display the Machine Analyzer Operation start window.
Note
• When Machine Analyzer is executed in the vertical shaft mode, a servo lock is first placed, and "Operation ready 2" signal is
output, and then the motor is started in 0.5s.
• When an electromagnetic brake is used, assign the "Operation ready 2" signal to any of the output terminals and modify the
circuit to open the electromagnetic brake using this signal. If this is not done, a machine drop or an overcurrent or similar alarm
may occur. (For details of Pr. 190 to Pr. 196 "output terminal function selection", refer to the Instruction Manual of the inverter.)
