(d)
3 - 37
CHAPTER 3 Operating Procedures
(1) Overall setup
Read the following instructions. If you are sure that your machine will remain intact
and create no safety hazard, you can use the default settings for making
measurements.
(a) Frequency range
Define the machine resonance frequency measurement range as directed
below:
If an approximate resonance frequency is known:
Enter a frequency range that covers about fives times the approximate
resonance frequency.
If an approximate resonance frequency is not known:
Select a range of "- 900 Hz".
After the resonance frequency is measured, you should set a frequency range
that covers about fives times the measured resonance frequency, and then
measure the resonance frequency again. It would produce a relatively
accurate measurement result.
(b) Torque (command )
Set the diagnostic signal torque amplitude for mechanical system diagnostic
measurements.
For measurement accuracy assurance purposes, you should select an
adequately high amplitude (100% or lower). Note, however, that the higher the
amplitude, the greater the torque applied to the machine.
(c) Speed (command)
Mechanical system diagnostic checkout is performed while an operation is
conducted at a constant speed. Therefore, specify the constant speed by
entering a speed command.
The entered speed should be between 100 min-1 and rated speed (3000 min-1
for the standard product), adequately high but not detrimental to the machine,
and appropriate for stable rotation.
(d) Allowable (operation range)
The distance moved for mechanical system diagnostics is displayed in terms of
the equivalent number of servomotor rotations. The machine comes to an
immediate stop at the end of the mechanical system diagnostic checkout, but
moves slightly more than the displayed value due to the inertia of the machine.
You should reposition the servomotor so that the machine can move slightly in
excess of the displayed number of rotations, decrease the speed command
value, or reduce the operation range adjustment value, which is adjustable
from the advanced setup by clicking [Options] button.
(2) Advanced setup
You do not have to perform advanced setup under normal conditions. However,
you can enter any necessary advanced setup data by clicking [Options] button.
3 - 38
CHAPTER 3 Operating Procedures
(e) Number (of data)
You can specify the number of FFT computation points for mechanical system
diagnostics. The larger the number of points, the higher the measurement
accuracy. However, the time required for a data upload will increase with an
increase in the number of points. You can use a relatively low setting for
making initial rough measurements and raise the setting for final detailed
measurements to reduce the required measurement time. In principle,
measurements should be at a maximum setting of 4096 points.
(f) Window (function)
A window function can be exercised for the data. If a measured waveform is
messy, it may become clean when you change the window function option.
You should basically use the "Hunning" setting for measurement purposes.
(g) Operation (range adjustment)
When you decrease the setting, the operation range for measurement
decreases, but the waveform of a low-frequency region becomes messy. If the
waveform of a low-frequency region is disordered at a default setting, you
should increase the setting.

The mechanical system diagnostics window opens.
8-
Turn off the servo ON signal, turn the RS terminal on and then back off, and exit
the mechanical system diagnostics mode.
9-
Observe the waveform to determine whether or not to make measurements again.
When the resonance point is properly measured:
Proceed as directed below.
The waveform shown in Step 7- indicates that a relatively clear resonance
point is measured. Therefore, you may proceed to next notch filter setup.
However, if you make measurements again as indicated below, you might be
able to measure a quite clear waveform as shown below.
When the resonance point is not properly measured:
Edit the measurement frequency setting (a) so that the measurement
frequency is five times of a currently measured peak (similar to the pointed
summit of a mountain) that looks like a resonance point, repeat Steps 4- and
beyond until you obtain a clean measurement result. You should also edit
settings (b) through (g).
The measurement result you will obtain after changing the setting might look
like the figure below:
3 - 41
CHAPTER 3 Operating Procedures
NOTE: You might not be able to obtain a clean measurement result shown above
depending on your machine no matter how many times you edit the settings.
However, there is no practical problem as far as the resonance point (a peak
similar to the pointed summit of a mountain) is measured.
3 - 42
CHAPTER 3 Operating Procedures
3.5.4
Notch filter setup procedure
The notch filter parameter can be set by performing the procedure described below (it is
necessary to measure the resonance point as directed in the preceding section):
1- As shown below, left-click the mouse on a resonance point (a peak similar to the
pointed summit of a mountain) within the waveform display area of the mechanical
diagnostics window. If any fine adjustments are needed, use the cursor buttons on
the left-hand side until the mouse cursor is positioned at the peak.
Left-click the
mouse.
Click these for
fine adjustments.

boxes to the right of the clicked button.
4-
You can set up to two resonance frequencies. If there is another resonance point,
repeat Steps 1- and beyond and set it with the [Filter 2] button.
NOTE: If resonance points are close to each other, the servomotor operation may
become unstable even when you properly complete filter setup. In such an
instance, set a predominant resonance point.
5-
Click the [Writing] button. The settings are then transferred to the servo drive.
6-
Restore the gain and other settings to their previous values, and then start an
operation to check whether the degree of vibration is decreased. If the degree of
vibration is not significantly decreased, slightly change the frequency setting (Fd12/Fd-14) to locate a point at which the degree of vibration decreases. It is also
well to remember that the notch filter function may effectively work when you adjust
the bandwidth (Fd-13/Fd-15).
NOTE: Mechanical diagnostic measurements are to be used as a guide only. The
measured resonance frequency may slightly deviate from what is correct.
