3.2.2 Mounting and cooling the MicroFlex e100
Ensure you have read and understood the Mechanical installation and location requirements in
section 3.2. Mount the MicroFlex e100 vertically on its rear side, the side opposite the front panel.
M5 bolts or screws should be used to mount the MicroFlex e100. Detailed dimensions are shown
in section 3.2.1.
For effective cooling, the MicroFlex e100 must be mounted upright on a smooth vertical metal
surface. The MicroFlex e100 is designed to operate in an ambient temperature of 0°C to 45°C
(32°F to 113°F). Output current must be derated between 45°C (113°F) and the absolute
maximum ambient temperature of 55°C (131°F). Within the ambient temperature range:
The 3A model is designed to operate without any additional cooling methods.
The 6A and 9A models require a forced air flow, passing vertically from the bottom to the top of
the MicroFlex e100 case, to allow full rated current at 45°C (113°F).
Temperature derating characteristics are shown in sections 3.2.3 to 3.2.5.
Note:
Failure to meet cooling air flow requirements will result in reduced product lifetime
and/or drive overtemperature trips. It is recommended to check periodically the
operation of the cooling equipment. Optional fan tray FAN001-024, mounted exactly
as shown in section A.1.1., ensures that correct cooling is provided and allows the
MicroFlex e100 to be UL listed.
3.2.2.1 Effects of mounting surface and proximity
Hot
Metal backplane
15mm
If the MicroFlex e100 is mounted above or
below another MicroFlex e100 (or other
obstruction), there should be a minimum space
of 90mm to maintain effective cooling.
Remember that when a MicroFlex e100 is
mounted above another MicroFlex e100 or
heat source, it will be receiving air that has
been already heated by the device(s) below it.
Multiple MicroFlex e100 units mounted above
each other should be aligned, not offset, to
promote air flow across the heatsinks.
Warm
The proximity of the MicroFlex e100 to other
components could affect cooling efficiency. If
the MicroFlex e100 is mounted beside another
MicroFlex e100 (or other obstruction), there
should be a minimum space of 15mm to
maintain effective cooling.
90mm
It is recommended to allow approximately
60mm at the front to accommodate wiring and
connectors.
MN1942
Cool
Forced air flow
15mm
The derating characteristics assume the
MicroFlex e100 is mounted on 3mm thick (or
less) metal plate. If the MicroFlex e100 is
mounted on 10mm plate then the current
characteristics shown in sections 3.2.3 to 3.2.5
may be increased by up to 7% if there is no
forced air cooling, or 15% if forced air cooling
is present.

3.4 Power connections
This section provides instructions for connecting the AC power supply.
The installer of this equipment is responsible for complying with NEC (National Electric Code)
guidelines or CE (Conformite Europeene) directives and application codes that govern wiring
protection, earthing/grounding, disconnects and other current protection.
DANGER:
Electrical shock can cause serious or fatal injury. Do not touch any
power device or electrical connection before you first ensure that
power has been disconnected and there is no high voltage present
from this equipment or other equipment to which it is connected.
MicroFlex e100 drives are designed to be powered from standard single and three-phase lines
that are electrically symmetrical with respect to earth/ground. The power supply module within
all MicroFlex e100 models provides rectification, smoothing and current surge protection. Fuses
or circuit breakers are required in the input lines for cable protection.
Note:
A Residual Current Device (RCD) must not be used for fusing the drive.
An appropriate type of circuit breaker or fuse must be used.
All interconnection wires should be in metal conduits between the MicroFlex e100, AC power
source, motor, host controller and any operator interface stations. Use UL listed closed loop
connectors that are of appropriate size for the wire gauge being used. Connectors are to be
installed using only the crimp tool specified by the manufacturer of the connector. Only class 1
wiring should be used.
3.4.1 Earthing / grounding
A permanent earth/ground bonding point is provided on the heatsink, which must be used as the
protective earth. It is labeled with the protective earth symbol in the casting and does not form any
other mechanical function.
Connector X1 contains earth terminals, but these must not be used as protective earth since the
connector does not guarantee earth connection first, disconnection last. Earthing methods are
shown in section 3.4.2.
Note:
When using unearthed/ungrounded distribution systems, an isolation transformer
with an earthed/grounded secondary is recommended. This provides three-phase
AC power that is symmetrical with respect to earth/ground and can prevent
equipment damage.
3.4.1.1 Protection class
User protection has been achieved using Protective Class I (EN61800-5-1, 3.2.20), which
requires an earth connection to the unit whenever hazardous voltages are applied. The
equipment provides protection against electric shock by:
H
Means of connection of protective earth to accessible live conductive parts.
H
Basic insulation.
3.4.1.2 Earth leakage
Maximum earth leakage from the MicroFlex e100 is 3.4mA per phase (230V 50Hz supply). This
value does not include the earth leakage from the AC power filter, which could be much larger
(see section A.1.3). If the MicroFlex e100 and filter are mounted in an enclosure, it is
recommended the enclosure is earthed using a 10mm2 conductor.

3.4.2 Single-phase or three-phase power connections
Location Connector X1
(Mating connector: Phoenix COMBICON
MSTB 2,5HC/11-ST-5,08)
Nominal input voltage 115VAC or 230VAC, 1Φ or 3Φ line to line
Minimum input voltage 105VAC, 1Φ or 3Φ line to line (see Note*)
Maximum input voltage 250VAC, 1Φ or 3Φ line to line
Note:
* The MicroFlex e100 will operate at lower input voltages, although performance
could be impaired. The drive will trip if the DC-bus voltage falls below 50V or 60% of
the no-load voltage, whichever occurs first.
For three phase supplies, connect supply to L1, L2 and L3 as shown in Figure 3. For single phase
supplies, connect the supply and neutral to any two line inputs, for example L1 and L2.
For CE compliance, an AC filter must be connected between the AC power supply and the
MicroFlex e100. If local codes do not specify different regulations, use at least the same gauge
wire for earth/ground as is used for L1, L2 and L3.
Tightening torque for terminal block connections is 0.5-0.6Nm (4.4-5.3 lb-in). The threaded hole
in the top and bottom of the case may be used as an additional functional earth/ground
connection for signals on connector X3. They may also be used to attach shield or strain relief
clamps. The holes are threaded for M4 bolts no longer than 11mm (0.43 in) in length.

3.4.3 Input power conditioning
Certain power line conditions must be avoided; an AC line reactor, an isolation transformer or a
step up/step down transformer may be required for some power conditions:
H
If the feeder or branch circuit that provides power to the MicroFlex e100 has permanently
connected power factor correction capacitors, an input AC line reactor or an isolation
transformer must be connected between the power factor correction capacitors and the
MicroFlex e100 to limit the maximum symmetrical short circuit current to 5000A.
H
If the feeder or branch circuit that provides power to the MicroFlex e100 has power factor
correction capacitors that are switched on line and off line, the capacitors must not be
switched while the drive is connected to the AC power line. If the capacitors are switched on
line while the drive is still connected to the AC power line, additional protection is required.
A Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor (TVSS) of the proper rating must be installed
between the AC line reactor (or isolation transformer) and the AC input to the
MicroFlex e100.
3.4.3.1 Input power-cycling and inrush
If AC power has been removed from the MicroFlex e100, it should remain disconnected for the
period specified in Table 1, before it is reapplied.

Table 1 - Power cycle intervals
This delay allows the input surge protection circuit to perform correctly, ensuring that the inrush
current (typically 1.7A) is below the drive rated current. Power-cycling the drive more frequently
could cause high inrush current and corresponding nuisance operation of circuit breakers or
fuses. Repeated failure to observe the delay period could reduce the lifetime of the
MicroFlex e100.
3.4.3.2 Discharge period
DANGER:
After AC power has been removed from the MicroFlex e100, high voltages
(greater than 50VDC) can remain on the regeneration resistor connections
until the DC-bus circuitry has discharged. The high voltage can remain for
the period specified in Table 2.

3.4.3.3 Supplying input power from a variac (variable transformer)
When AC power is supplied from a variac, the MicroFlex e100’s pre-charge circuit may not
operate correctly. To ensure that the pre-charge circuitry operates correctly, increase the variac
voltage to the desired level and then power cycle the 24VDC control circuit supply. This will restart
the pre-charge circuit and allow it to operate correctly.
3.4.4 Power disconnect and protection devices
A power disconnect should be installed between the input power supply and the MicroFlex e100
for a fail-safe method to disconnect power. The MicroFlex e100 will remain in a powered
condition until all input power is removed from the drive and the internal bus voltage has depleted.
The MicroFlex e100 must have a suitable input power protection device installed, preferably a
fuse. Recommended circuit breakers are thermal magnetic devices (1 or 3 phase as required)
with characteristics suitable for heavy inductive loads (C-type trip characteristic). Circuit breaker
or fuses are not supplied - see section 3.4.5. For CE compliance, see Appendix C.

Note:
Metal conduit or shielded cable should be used. Connect conduits so the use of a
line reactor or RC device does not interrupt EMI/RFI shielding.
3.4.4.1 Using 2 phases of a 3-phase supply
Power may be derived by connecting two phases of an appropriate three-phase supply (L1 and
L2 for example). When supplying AC power in this way, the voltage between the two phases must
not exceed the rated input voltage of the MicroFlex e100. A two pole breaker must be used to
isolate both lines. Fuses must be fitted in both lines.

control output current and no harmonic current. Earth/ground wires must be the
same gauge, or larger, than the Line wires.
3.4.6 Drive overload protection
The MicroFlex e100 will immediately trip and disable if there is an overload condition. The
parameters for managing drive overloads are configured automatically by the Commissioning
Wizard (see section 6.4.3). If they need to be changed, use the Parameters tool in Mint
WorkBench (see section 6.5.2).

3.4.7 Power supply filters
To comply with EEC directive 89/336/EEC, an AC power filter of the appropriate type must be
connected. This can be supplied by Baldor and will ensure that the MicroFlex e100 complies with
the CE specifications for which it has been tested. Ideally, one filter should be provided for each
MicroFlex e100; filters should not be shared between drives or other equipment. Table 4 lists the
appropriate filters:

Maximum earth leakage from the MicroFlex e100 is 3.4mA per phase (230V 50Hz supply). This
value does not include the earth leakage from the AC power filter, which could be much larger
(see section A.1.3).
3.4.7.1 Harmonic suppression
When operating the 3A MicroFlex e100 (part MFE230A003) on a single-phase AC supply, a
13mH 4Arms (10A peak) line reactor is required to ensure compliance with EN61000-3-2:2000
class A limits, when the total equipment supply load is less than 1kW.
3.4.7.2 Reversing the filter
When using filters FI0015A00 or FI0015A02 as specified in Table 4, they must be reversed to
ensure that the MicroFlex e100 complies with the CE specifications for which it has been tested.
The AC power supply should be connected to the filter terminals marked as the outputs, with the
MicroFlex e100 connected to the filter terminals marked as the inputs.
WARNING: This recommendation applies only to filters FI0015A00 and FI0015A02.
Alternative filters or protection devices must be connected as specified by
the manufacturer.

3.4.8 24V control circuit supply
A 24VDC supply must be provided to power the controlling electronics. This is useful for safety
reasons where AC power needs to be removed from the power stage but the controlling
electronics must remain powered to retain position and I/O information.
A separate fused 24V supply should be provided for the MicroFlex e100. If other devices are
likely to be powered from the same 24V supply, a filter (Baldor catalog number FI0014A00)
should be installed to isolate the MicroFlex e100 from the rest of the system. Alternatively, a
ferrite sleeve may be attached to the supply cable near connector X2.

3.5 Motor connections
MicroFlex e100 will operate with a large number of brushless servo motors. For information on
selecting Baldor servo motors please see the sales brochure BR1202, available from your local
Baldor representative. The motor must be capable of being powered by an inverter PWM output
- see section 8.1.3 for details. The motor can be connected directly to the MicroFlex e100 or
through a motor contactor (M-Contactor). The motor outputs are conditionally short-circuit proof.
Motors should ideally have a minimum inductance of 1mH per winding; for motors with lower
inductance an output reactor may be fitted in series with the motor.
When using a Baldor motor, the parameters for managing motor overloads are configured
automatically by the Commissioning Wizard (see section 6.4.3). If they need to be changed, or
you are using an alternative motor, use the Parameters tool in Mint WorkBench (see section

CAUTION:
The motor leads U, V and W must be connected to their corresponding U,
V or W terminal on the motor. Misconnection will result in uncontrolled motor
movement.
The motor power cable must be shielded for CE compliance. The connector or gland used at the
motor must provide 360 degree shielding. The maximum recommended cable length is 30.5m
(100ft).
Note:
For CE compliance the motor earth/ground should be connected to the drive
earth/ground.
3-18 Basic Installation
MN1942
www.supportme.net
3.5.1 Motor circuit contactors
If required by local codes or for safety reasons, an M-Contactor (motor circuit contactor) may be
installed to provide a physical disconnection of the motor windings from the MicroFlex e100 (see
section 3.5). Opening the M-Contactor ensures that the MicroFlex e100 cannot drive the motor,
which may be necessary during equipment maintenance or similar operations. Under certain
circumstances, it may also be necessary to fit a brake to a rotary motor. This is important with
hanging loads where disconnecting the motor windings could result in the load falling. Contact
your local supplier for details of appropriate brakes.
CAUTION:
If an M-Contactor is installed, the MicroFlex e100 must be disabled at least
20ms before the M-Contactor is opened. If the M-Contactor is opened while
the MicroFlex e100 is supplying voltage and current to the motor, the
MicroFlex e100 may be damaged. Incorrect installation or failure of the
M-Contactor or its wiring may result in damage to the MicroFlex e100.
Ensure that shielding of the motor cable is continued on both sides of the contactor.

3.5.4 Sinusoidal filter
A sinusoidal filter is used to provide a better quality waveform to the motor, reducing motor noise,
temperature and mechanical stress. It will reduce or eliminate harmful dV/dt values (voltage rise
over time) and voltage doubling effects which can damage motor insulation. This effect occurs
most noticeably when using very long motor cables, for example 30m (100 ft) or more. Baldor
motors intended to be used with drives are designed to withstand the effects of large dV/dt and
overvoltage effects. However, if very long motor cables are unavoidable and are causing
problems, then a sinusoidal filter may be beneficial.

3.5.5 Thermal switch connection
You might wish to wire the motor’s thermal switch contacts (normally closed), using a relay, to a
digital input on connector X3 (see section 3.3.1). Using the Mint WorkBench Digital I/O tool, the
input can be configured to be the motor trip input. This allows the MicroFlex e100 to respond to
motor over-temperature conditions. The Mint keyword MOTORTEMPERATUREINPUT can also be
used to configure a digital input for this purpose. A typical circuit, using DIN1 as the input, is shown
in Figure 9.

Figure 10 - Motor brake control circuit
This circuit uses the drive enable signal (configured using DRIVEENABLEOUTPUT to appear on
DOUT0) in conjunction with DOUT1 (configured as the MOTORBRAKEOUTPUT). See the Mint help
file for details. With this configuration, the following sequences can be used to control the brake.
To engage the brake:
H The motor is brought to rest under normal control;
H Relay 2 is deactivated, causing the brake to engage;
H The drive is disabled. This removes power from the motor and causes Relay 1 to be
deactivated.
To disengage the brake:
H The drive is enabled, activating Relay 1;
H Power is applied to the motor to hold position under normal control;
H Relay 2 is activated, causing the brake to be disengaged.
It may be necessary to include a small delay, after Relay 2 has been activated, before starting
motion. This delay will allow time for the relay contacts to engage and the brake to release.
CAUTION:
The 24VDC power supply used to power the brake must be a separate
supply as shown in Figure 10. Do not use the supply that is powering the
MicroFlex e100 digital outputs. The brake wires often carry noise that could
cause erratic drive operation or damage. The brake contacts must never be
wired directly to the digital outputs. The relay(s) should be fitted with a
protective flyback diode, as shown. The separate 24VDC supply used for the
motor brake may also be used to power the relay in the thermal switch circuit
(section 3.5.5).

3.6 Regeneration resistor (Dynamic Brake resistor)
An optional external regeneration resistor may be required to dissipate excess power from the
internal DC bus during motor deceleration. The regeneration resistor must have a resistance of
at least 39Ω, an inductance of less than 100µH, and a minimum power rating of 44W. Suitable
regeneration resistors are listed in section A.1.4. The regeneration resistor output is conditionally
short-circuit proof.

4.1 Introduction
MicroFlex e100 supports many feedback options for use with linear and rotary motors, including
incremental encoder, encoder with SSI (Synchronous Serial Interface), SinCos encoder, or
EnDat absolute encoder. All suitable types of feedback device can be connected to the universal
feedback interface available on connector X8.
There are some important considerations when wiring the feedback device:
H
The feedback device wiring must be separated from power wiring.
H
Where feedback device wiring runs parallel to power cables, they must be separated by at
least 76mm (3 in)
H
Feedback device wiring must cross power wires at right angles only.
H
To prevent contact with other conductors or earths/grounds, unearthed/ungrounded ends of
shields must often be insulated.
H
Linear motors use two separate cables (encoder and Hall). The cores of these two cables will
need to be wired to the appropriate pins of the 15-pin D-type mating connector.
H
The inputs are not isolated.

4.1.1 Incremental encoder feedback
The incremental encoder connections (ABZ channels and Hall signals) are made using the
15-pin D-type female connector X8. The encoder inputs (CHA, CHB and CHZ) accept differential
signals only. Twisted pairs must be used for each complementary signal pair e.g. CHA+ and
CHA-. The Hall inputs may be used as differential inputs (recommended for improved noise
immunity) or single ended inputs. When used as single ended inputs, leave the Hall U-, Hall Vand Hall W- pins unconnected. The overall cable shield (screen) must be connected to the
metallic shell of the D-type connector. Connector X8 includes a ‘Sense’ pin, which is used to
detect the voltage drop on long cable runs. This allows the MicroFlex e100 to increase the
encoder supply voltage on pin 12 to maintain a 5V supply at the encoder (200mA max).

Incremental encoders without Hall feedback connections may be connected to the

will cause motor movement of up to 1 turn on rotary motors, or one pole-pitch on linear motors.

The absolute encoder interface supports both incremental and absolute (multi and single turn)
feedback using EnDat technology. It is possible to read and write information to the encoder.
The absolute encoder connections are made using the 15-pin D-type female connector X8.
Twisted pair cables must be used for the complementary signal pairs e.g. Sin+ and Sin-. The

5.2.4 Special functions on inputs DIN1 and DIN2
DIN1 and DIN2 can be configured to perform special functions.
5.2.4.1 Fast position capture
DIN1 or DIN2 can be configured using the FASTSELECT keyword to become a fast latch input.
This allows the position of the axis to be captured in real-time and read using the Mint keyword
FASTPOS. or FASTENCODER. The input can configured using the FASTLATCHEDGE keyword to
be triggered either on a rising or falling edge. Further control of position capture is provided by the
FASTLATCH and FASTLATCHMODE keywords.
The maximum latency to read the fast position depends on the feedback device. For an
incremental encoder, the latency is approximately 150 - 300ns. For other feedback devices
latency may be up to 62.5µs, resulting from the 16kHz sampling frequency used for these types
of feedback device. The fast interrupt will be latched on a pulse width of about 30µs, although a
width of 100µs is recommended to ensure capture. To prevent subsequent inputs causing the
captured value to be overwritten, the interrupt is latched in software.
Note:
The fast inputs are particularly sensitive to noise, so inputs must use shielded
twisted pair cable. Do not connect mechanical switches, relay contacts or other
sources liable to signal ‘bounce’ directly to the fast inputs. This could cause
unwanted multiple triggering.

The optically isolated general purpose / status output is designed to source current from the user
supply as shown in Figure 30. The PS2562L has a maximum power dissipation of 200mW at
25°C. The maximum saturated voltage across the outputs when active is 1.0VDC, so it can be
used as a TTL compatible output.
The output includes a self-resetting fuse that operates at approximately 200mA. The fuse may
take up to 20 seconds to reset after the load has been removed. If the output is used to directly
drive a relay, a suitably rated diode must be fitted across the relay coil, observing the correct
polarity. This is to protect the output from the back-EMF generated by the relay coil when it is
de-energized. The sense of the output can be configured in Mint WorkBench, and its state is
displayed in the Spy window.

Description General purpose opto-isolated digital output
Output current:
100mA maximum
User supply:
+28VDC maximum
Update interval:
1ms
The optically isolated general purpose output is designed to source current from the user supply
as shown in Figure 30. The PS2562L has a maximum power dissipation of 200mW at 25°C. The
maximum saturated voltage across the outputs when active is 1.0VDC, so it can be used as a
TTL compatible output.
The output includes a self-resetting fuse that operates at approximately 200mA. The fuse may
take up to 20 seconds to reset after the load has been removed. If the output is used to directly
drive a relay, a suitably rated diode must be fitted across the relay coil, observing the correct
polarity. This is to protect the output from the back-EMF generated by the relay coil when it is
de-energized. The sense of the output can be configured in Mint WorkBench, and its state is
displayed in the Spy window.

The USB connector is used to connect the MicroFlex e100 to a PC running Mint WorkBench. The
MicroFlex e100 is a self-powered, USB 1.1 (12Mbps) compatible device. If it is connected to a
slower USB1.0 host PC or hub, communication speed will be limited to the USB1.0 specification
(1.5Mbps). If it is connected to a faster USB2.0 (480Mbps) host PC or hub, communication
speed will remain at the USB1.1 specification of the MicroFlex e100.
Ideally, the MicroFlex e100 should be connected directly to a USB port on the host PC. If it is
connected to a hub shared by other USB devices, communication could be affected by the
activity of the other devices. A 2m (6.5 ft) standard USB cable is supplied. The maximum
recommended cable length is 5m (16.4 ft).

5.4 Ethernet interface
The Ethernet interface provides TCP/IP and ETHERNET Powerlink (EPL) networking capabilities.
5.4.1 TCP/IP
Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is a common set of protocols used to
transfer information between devices over a network, including the internet. TCP enables two
devices to establish a connection, and guarantees the delivery of packets (datagrams) of
information in the correct order. IP specifies the format of the individual packets (which includes
the destination address of the receiving device) but has no influence on whether the packet is
delivered correctly.
TCP/IP allows the MicroFlex e100 to support standard Ethernet communication with a host PC
running Mint WorkBench. The connection uses Baldor’s high level ICM (Immediate Command
Mode) protocol to allow Mint commands, Mint programs and even firmware to be sent to the
controller over the Ethernet network.
When operating in standard Ethernet mode, TCP/IP cannot be used to communicate with a
controller on a daisy-chained network. This is due to cumulative timing errors caused by each
controller’s internal hub. It is necessary to connect the host PC to the controller either directly or
via a single hub, as shown in Figure 34:
Host PC
MicroFlex e100 drives
External hub
Figure 34 - Connecting to drives using TCP/IP in standard Ethernet mode
When operating in EPL mode, in conjunction with an EPL compatible router, the host PC can use
TCP/IP to communicate with controllers on a daisy-chained network. In this situation, the router
will use TCP/IP only within EPL’s asynchronous time slots. See the Mint help file for further
details.

5.4.2 ETHERNET Powerlink
MicroFlex e100 supports the deterministic ETHERNET Powerlink (EPL) protocol. This protocol
provides very precise and predictable ‘real-time’ communication over a 100Mbit/s (100Base-T)
Fast Ethernet (IEEE 802.3u) connection. This makes it suitable for the transmission of control
and feedback signals between the MicroFlex e100 and other EPL enabled controllers such as
NextMove e100. The EPL protocol implemented in Mint is based on the CANopen DS402 Device
Profile for Drives and Motion Control.
MicroFlex e100 incorporates a built-in repeating hub, providing two ports for connection to other
equipment. This allows nodes to be connected as a ‘daisy-chain’ network of up to 10 nodes,
avoiding the need for additional hubs. If the network comprises more than 10 nodes, an external
hub must be used. The structure of the physical network is informal so does not need to reflect
the logical relationship between nodes. Ethernet switches must not be used in EPL networks as
their timing cannot be guaranteed.

Shield connection
To connect the MicroFlex e100 to other EPL devices, ordinary shielded CAT5 Ethernet cables
are used. Cables may be up to 100m (328 ft) long. Two varieties of CAT5 cable are available;
‘straight’ or ‘crossed’. Straight cables have the TX pins of the connector at one end of the cable
wired to the TX pins of the RJ45 connector at the other end of the cable. Crossover cables have
the TX pins of the connector at one end of the cable wired to the RX pins of the RJ45 connector
at the other end of the cable.
Provided the network consists of only Baldor EPL controllers and drives (and any hub), straight
or crossed cables may be used. This is because many Ethernet devices, including hubs and all
Baldor EPL products, incorporate Auto-MDIX switching technology which automatically
compensates for the wiring of the straight cable. However, if other manufacturer’s EPL nodes are
included in the network, crossover cables should be used as recommended by the ETHERNET
Powerlink Standardization Group (EPSG).
The MicroFlex e100 Ethernet interface is galvanically isolated from the rest of the MicroFlex e100
circuitry by magnetic isolation modules incorporated in each of the Ethernet connectors. This
provides protection up to 1.5kV. The connector/cable screen is connected directly to the chassis
earth of the MicroFlex e100. Termination components are incorporated in each of the Ethernet
connectors, so no further termination is required.
The EPL network supports the 100Base-TX (100Mbit/s) system only, so attempting to connect
slower 10Base-T (10Mbit/s) nodes will cause a network error.

5.5 CAN interface
The CAN bus is a serial based network originally developed for automotive applications, but now
used for a wide range of industrial applications. It offers low-cost serial communications with
very high reliability in an industrial environment; the probability of an undetected error is
4.7x10-11. It is optimized for the transmission of small data packets and therefore offers fast
update of I/O devices (peripheral devices) connected to the bus.
The CAN protocol only defines the physical attributes of the network, i.e. the electrical,
mechanical, functional and procedural parameters of the physical connection between devices.
The higher level network functionality on MicroFlex e100 is defined by the CANopen protocol,
one of the most used standards for machine control.

5.5.2 CAN wiring
A very low error bit rate over CAN can only be achieved with a suitable wiring scheme, so the
following points should be observed:
H
The two-wire data bus line may be routed parallel, twisted and/or shielded, depending on
EMC requirements. Baldor recommend a twisted pair cable with the shield/screen
connected to the connector backshell, in order to reduce RF emissions and provide immunity
to conducted interference.
H
The bus must be terminated at both ends only (not at intermediate points) with resistors of a
nominal value of 120Ω. This is to reduce reflections of the electrical signals on the bus, which
helps a node to interpret the bus voltage levels correctly. If the MicroFlex e100 is at the end
of the network then ensure that a 120Ω resistor is fitted (normally inside the D-type
connector).
H
All cables and connectors should have a nominal impedance of 120Ω. Cables should have
a length related resistance of 70mΩ/m and a nominal line delay of 5ns/m.
MN1942
Input / Output 5-17
www.supportme.net
H
The maximum bus length depends on the bit-timing
configuration (baud rate). The table opposite shows
the approximate maximum bus length (worst-case),
assuming 5ns/m propagation delay and a total
effective device internal in-out delay of 210ns at
1Mbit/s, 300ns at 500 - 250Kbit/s, 450ns at 125Kbit/s
and 1.5ms at 50 - 10Kbit/s.
(1)
For bus lengths greater than about 1000m,
bridge or repeater devices may be needed.

H
The compromise between bus length and CAN baud
rate must be determined for each application. The
CAN baud rate can be set using the BUSBAUD keyword. It is essential that all nodes on the
network are configured to run at the same baud rate.
H
The wiring topology of a CAN network should be as close as possible to a single line/bus
structure. However, stub lines are allowed provided they are kept to a minimum (<0.3m at
1Mbit/s).
H
The 0V connection of all of the nodes on the network must be tied together through the CAN
cabling. This ensures that the CAN signal levels transmitted by MicroFlex e100 or CAN
peripheral devices are within the common mode range of the receiver circuitry of other nodes
on the network.
5.5.2.1 Opto-isolation
On the MicroFlex e100, the CAN channel is opto-isolated. A voltage in the range 12-24V must
be applied between pin 9 (+24V) and pin 3 or 6 (0V) of the CAN connector. From this supply, an
internal voltage regulator provides the 5V at 100mA required for the isolated CAN circuit. CAN
cables supplied by Baldor are ‘category 5’ and have a maximum current rating of 1A, so the
maximum number of MicroFlex e100 units that may be used on one network is limited to ten.
5.5.3 CANopen
Baldor have implemented a CANopen protocol in Mint (based on the ‘Communication Profile’ CiA
DS-301) which supports both direct access to device parameters and time-critical process data
communication. The MicroFlex e100 complies with CANopen slave device profile DS402, and
can be a DS401 or DS403 master device (with limited functionality). It is able to support and
communicate with a variety of devices including:
H
Any third party digital and analog I/O device that is compliant with the ‘Device Profile for
Generic I/O Modules’ (CiA DS-401).
H
Baldor HMI (Human Machine Interface) operator panels, which are based on the ‘Device
Profile for Human Machine Interfaces’ (DS403).
H
Other Baldor controllers with CANopen support for peer-to-peer access using extensions to
the CiA specifications (DS301 and DS302).
The functionality and characteristics of all Baldor CANopen devices are defined in individual
standardized (ASCII format) Electronic Data Sheets (EDS) which can be found on the Baldor
Motion Toolkit CD supplied with your product, or downloaded from www.supportme.net.
Figure 38 shows a typical CANopen network with a NextMove e100 manager node, one

Figure 38 - Typical CANopen network connections
Note:
The MicroFlex e100 CAN channel is opto-isolated, so a voltage in the range 12-24V
must be applied between pin 9 and pin 6 of the CAN connector.
The configuration and management of a CANopen network must be carried out by a single node
acting as the network manager (for example NextMove e100), or by a third party CANopen
manager device.
Up to 126 CANopen nodes (node IDs 2 to 127) can be added to the network by the manager node
using the Mint NODESCAN keyword. If successful, the nodes can then be connected to using the
Mint CONNECT keyword. Any network and node related events can then be monitored using the
Mint BUS1 event.
Note:
All CAN related Mint keywords are referenced to CANopen using the ‘bus’ dot
parameter. For CANopen the ‘bus’ dot parameter must be set to 1.
Please refer to the Mint help file for further details on CANopen, Mint keywords and dot
parameters.

5.6 Other I/O
5.6.1 Node ID selector switches
The MicroFlex e100 has two selector switches which determine the unit’s
node ID on EPL networks. Each switch has 16 positions, allowing selection
of the hexadecimal values 0 - F. In combination, the two switches allow
node IDs of 0 - 255 (hexadecimal FF) to be selected. The switch labelled ‘HI’
sets the high nibble (half byte), and the switch labelled ‘LO’ sets the low
nibble. The following table lists all node IDs from 0 to 255 with the equivalent
HI and LO switch settings:

In many networking environments, the node ID may also be referred to as the address. On EPL
networks, limitations apply to the node IDs that may be selected:
H
Node ID 0 is reserved for special purposes and cannot be used.
H
Setting the switches to select a node ID between 1 and 239 causes the node to become a
‘controlled node’, a node that will accept commands from the manager node.
H
Node ID 240 is reserved for the EPL manager node (for example NextMove e100) so cannot
be used by MicroFlex e100.
H
Node IDs between 241 and 255 are reserved for special purposes and cannot be used.
For all other communication channels such as CANopen and USB, the node ID is set in software.
Each channel can have a different node ID, selected using the Mint WorkBench Connectivity
Wizard or the Mint BUSNODE keyword. See the Mint help file for details.

Configuration
6.1 Introduction
Before powering the MicroFlex e100 you will need to connect it to the PC using a USB or Ethernet
cable and install the supplied Mint Machine Center software. This software includes a number of
tools to allow you to configure and tune the MicroFlex e100. If you do not have experience of
software installation or Windows applications you may need further assistance for this stage of
the installation.
6.1.1 Connecting the MicroFlex e100 to the PC
The MicroFlex e100 can be connected to the PC using either USB or TCP/IP.
To use USB, connect a USB cable between a PC USB port and the MicroFlex e100 USB port.
Your PC must be using Windows 2000 or Windows XP.
To use TCP/IP, connect a CAT5 Ethernet cable between the PC and one of the MicroFlex e100
Ethernet ports.
CAUTION:
You cannot connect an ordinary office PC to the MicroFlex e100 without first
altering the PC’s Ethernet adapter configuration. However, if you have
installed a second Ethernet adapter dedicated for use with the
MicroFlex e100, then this adapter’s configuration can be altered without
affecting the PC’s office Ethernet connection. If you are unsure about
making changes to your PC’s Ethernet adapter configuration, or are
prevented by user permission levels, ask your I.T. administrator to assist
you.
CAUTION:
If there is a EPL manager node (node ID 240) on the Ethernet network, then
the network will be operating in EPL mode. This means any TCP/IP
connection from the PC must pass through an EPL compatible router.
6.1.2 Installing Mint Machine Center and Mint WorkBench
You will need to install Mint Machine Center (MMC) and Mint WorkBench to configure and tune
the MicroFlex e100. Any previous version of Mint WorkBench must be uninstalled before
proceeding with this installation:
1. Insert the CD into the drive.
2. After a few seconds the setup wizard should start automatically. If the setup wizard does not
appear, select Run... from the Windows Start menu and type
d:\start
where d represents the drive letter of the CD device.
Follow the on-screen instructions to install MMC (including Mint WorkBench). The setup
wizard will copy the files to appropriate folders within the C:\Program Files folder, and place
shortcuts on the Windows Start menu.
MN1942
Configuration 6-1
www.supportme.net
6.2 Starting the MicroFlex e100
If you have followed the instructions in the previous sections, you should now have connected all
the power sources, inputs and outputs, and the Ethernet cable or USB cable linking the PC to the
MicroFlex e100.
6.2.1 Preliminary checks
Before you apply power for the first time, it is very important to verify the following:
H
Disconnect the load from the motor until instructed to apply a load. If this cannot be done,
disconnect the motor wires at connector X1.
H
Verify that the AC line voltage matches the specification of the MicroFlex e100.
H
Inspect all power connections for accuracy, workmanship and tightness.
H
Verify that all wiring conforms to applicable codes.
H
Verify that the MicroFlex e100 and motor are properly earthed/grounded.
H
Check all signal wiring for accuracy.
6.2.2 Power on checks
If at any time the Status LED flashes red, the drive has detected a fault - see section 7.
1. Turn on the 24VDC supply.
2. Turn on the AC supply.
3. Within approximately 20-30 seconds, the test sequence should complete and the Status
LED should illuminate red. If the Status LED is not lit then re-check the power supply
connections. If the Status LED flashes red, this indicates that the MicroFlex e100 has
detected a fault - see section 7. Note that after downloading firmware, startup may take more
than 1 minute.
4. If the motor wires were disconnected in section 6.2.1, turn off the AC supply and reconnect
the motor wires. Turn on the AC supply.
5. To allow the Commissioning Wizard to function, the drive enable signal will need to be
present on connector X3 to allow the MicroFlex e100 to be enabled (see section 5.2.1.). If
you do not wish to enable the MicroFlex e100 yet, the Commissioning Wizard will inform you
when this step is necessary.
6.2.3 Installing the USB driver
It is now necessary to install the USB driver. When the MicroFlex e100 is powered, Windows
(2000 or XP only) will automatically detect the controller and request the driver. The driver
consists of two files, USBmotion.inf and USBmotion.sys. Both files must be present for
installation.
1. Follow the on-screen instructions to select and install the driver. The driver files are available
on the supplied Baldor Motion Toolkit CD. If you are using a copy of the driver located on the
hard disk, a floppy disk or another CD, the two driver files must be in the same folder.
2. During installation, Windows XP may report that the driver is ‘unsigned’. This is normal for the
MicroFlex e100 driver, so click the Continue Anyway button to continue with the installation.
When installation is complete, a new USB Motion Controller device will be listed in the
Universal Serial Bus controllers section of Windows Device Manager.
6-2 Configuration
MN1942
www.supportme.net
The MicroFlex e100 is now ready to be configured using Mint WorkBench.
Note:
If the MicroFlex e100 is later connected to a different USB port on the host computer,
Windows may report that it has found new hardware. Either install the driver files
again for the new USB port, or connect the MicroFlex e100 to the original USB port
where it will be recognized in the usual way.
6.2.4 Configuring the TCP/IP connection (optional)
If you have connected the MicroFlex e100 to the PC using the Ethernet connection, it will be
necessary to alter the PC’s Ethernet adapter configuration to operate correctly with the
MicroFlex e100.
CAUTION:
You cannot connect an ordinary office PC to the MicroFlex e100 without first
altering the PC’s Ethernet adapter configuration. However, if you have
installed a second Ethernet adapter dedicated for use with the
MicroFlex e100, then this adapter’s configuration can be altered without
affecting the PC’s office Ethernet connection. If you are unsure about
making changes to your PC’s Ethernet adapter configuration, or are
prevented by user permission levels, ask your I.T. administrator to assist
you.
The following explanation assumes the PC is connected directly to the MicroFlex e100, and not
across an intermediate Ethernet network. If you wish to attempt the connection through an
intermediate Ethernet network, then the network administrator must be consulted to ensure that
the necessary IP addresses will be allowed and are not already allocated on the network. The
MicroFlex e100 has a fixed IP address of the format 192.168.100.xxx. The last number, xxx, is
the decimal value defined by the MicroFlex e100’s node ID selector switches (see section 5.6.1).
1. On the Windows Start menu, select Settings, Network Connections.
2. In the Network Connections Window, right-click the ’Local Area Connection’ entry for the
required Ethernet adapter and choose Properties.
3. In the Local Area Connection Properties dialog, in the ’This connection uses the following
items’ list, select the ‘Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)‘ entry and click Properties.
4. In the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties dialog, on the General tab, make a note of the
existing settings. Click Advanced... and make a note of any existing settings. Click the
Alternate Configuration tab and make a note of any existing settings.
5. On the General tab, choose the ’Use the following IP address’ option.
6. In the IP address box, enter the IP address 192.168.100.241. This is the IP address that will
be assigned to the Ethernet adapter. The value 241 is deliberately chosen as it is outside the
range that can be used by MicroFlex e100, so avoiding possible conflicts.
MN1942
Configuration 6-3
www.supportme.net
7. In the Subnet mask box, enter 255.255.255.0 and click OK.
Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties dialog.
8. On the Windows Start menu, select Command Prompt (often found under Accessories).
9. In the Command Prompt window, type PING 192.168.100.16, where the final value (16 in this
example) is the value selected by the MicroFlex e100’s node ID selector switches. In this
example, the MicroFlex e100’s switches would be set to HI=1 LO=0, which represents
hexadecimal 10, equivalent to decimal 16 (see section 5.6.1 for a list of hexadecimal /
decimal equivalents). A reply message should be returned.
10. It should now be possible to run Mint WorkBench and connect to the MicroFlex e100 using
the Ethernet / TCP/IP connection.

6.3 Mint Machine Center
The Mint Machine Center (MMC) is used to view the network of connected controllers in a
system. Individual controllers and drives are configured using Mint WorkBench.
Note:
If you have only a single MicroFlex e100 connected to your PC, then MMC is
probably not required. Use Mint WorkBench (see section 6.4) to configure the
MicroFlex e100.

Figure 41 - The Mint Machine Center software
The Mint Machine Center (MMC) provides an overview of the controller network currently
accessible by the PC. The MMC contains a controller pane on the left, and an information pane
on the right. In the controller pane select the Host item, then in the information pane click Scan.
This causes MMC to scan for all connected controllers. Clicking once on a controller’s name
causes various options to be displayed in the information pane. Double-clicking on a controller’s
name launches an instance of Mint WorkBench that is automatically connected to the controller.
Application View allows the layout and organization of controllers in your machine to be modelled
and described on screen. Controllers can be dragged onto the Application View icon, and
renamed to give a more meaningful description, for example “Conveyor 1, Packaging Controller”.
Drives that are controlled by another product, such as a NextMove e100, can be dragged onto
the NextMove e100 icon itself, creating a visible representation of the machine. A text description
for the system and associated files can be added, and the resulting layout saved as an “MMC
Workspace”. When you next need to administer the system, simply loading the workspace
automatically connects to all the required controllers. See the Mint help file for full details of
MMC.

Click Scan to re-scan the ports.
6.4.3 Commissioning Wizard
Each type of motor and drive combination has different performance characteristics. Before the
MicroFlex e100 can be used to control the motor accurately, the MicroFlex e100 must be ‘tuned’.
This is the process where the MicroFlex e100 powers the motor in a series of tests. By monitoring
the feedback from the motor’s encoder and performing a number of calculations, the
MicroFlex e100 can make small adjustments to the way it controls the motor. This information is
stored in the MicroFlex e100 and can be uploaded to a file if necessary.
The Commissioning Wizard provides a simple way to tune the MicroFlex e100 and create the
necessary configuration information for your drive/motor combination, so this is the first tool that
should be used. If necessary, any of the parameters set by the Commissioning Wizard can be
adjusted manually after commissioning is complete.
MN1942
Configuration 6-11
www.supportme.net
6.4.3.1 Using the Commissioning Wizard
CAUTION:
The motor will move during commissioning. For safety it is advisable to
disconnect any load from the motor during initial commissioning. The motor
can be tuned with the load connected after the Commissioning Wizard has
finished.
Each screen of the Commissioning Wizard requires you to enter information about the motor or
drive. Read each screen carefully and enter the required information.
On the Operating Mode screen, it is important to select ‘Host/Mint’ as the Reference Source.
This will allow the Autotune Wizard to operate correctly, and allow further initial testing to be
performed using Mint WorkBench. Although the MicroFlex e100 may eventually be controlled
over ETHERNET Powerlink (EPL), this reference source should only be selected after the
MicroFlex e100 has been commissioned and is ready to add to the EPL network. This can be
selected by choosing the Operating Mode tool in the Toolbox.
If you need extra help, click Help or press F1 to display the help file.
When you have completed a screen, click Next > to display the next screen. If you need to
change something on a previous screen, click the < Back button. The Commissioning Wizard
remembers information that you have entered so you will not need to re-enter everything if you
go back to previous screens.
During commissioning, changed parameters are stored in the MicroFlex e100’s temporary
(volatile) memory. For this reason, the Commissioning Wizard will occasionally prompt you to
save the parameters. Selecting Yes will cause the parameters to be saved in the
MicroFlex e100’s non-volatile flash memory, to be retained when power is removed. If you select
No, you must remember to use the Save Drive Parameters function before removing power from
the MicroFlex e100; this function is available on the Tools menu, or by clicking the
button on
the Mode toolbar. Saving parameters into flash memory will cause the MicroFlex e100 to be
reset.

6.4.4 Performing a test move
This section tests the basic operation of the drive and motor.
1. Check that the Drive enable button is
pressed (down).
2. In the Toolbox, click the Edit & Debug icon.
3. Click in the Command window.
4. Type:
JOG.0 = 10
This will cause the motor to move
continuously at 10 units per second. In Mint
WorkBench, look at the Spy window located
on the right of the screen. The Spy window’s
Velocity
display
should
show
10
(approximately). If there seems to be very little motor movement, it is probably due to the scale
factor. In the Commissioning Wizard, on the Select Scale Factor page, if you did not adjust
the scale factor then the current unit of movement is feedback counts per second. Depending
on the motor’s feedback device, 10 feedback counts per second could equate to a very small
velocity. Issue another JOG command using a larger value, or use the Operating Mode Wizard
to select a suitable scale factor (e.g. 4000 if the motor has a 1000 line encoder, or 10,000 for
a 2500 line encoder).

7.2 MicroFlex e100 indicators
7.2.1 STATUS LED
The Status LED indicates general MicroFlex e100 status information.
Solid green:
Drive enabled (normal operation).
Flickering / blinking green:
Firmware download / update in progress.
Solid red:
Drive disabled, but no errors are latched.
Flashing red:
Powerbase fault or error(s) present. The number of flashes indicates which
error has occurred. For example, to display error 3 (overcurrent trip), the LED
flashes 3 times at 0.1 second intervals, followed by a 0.5 second pause. The
sequence is repeated continuously.

DC bus overvoltage trip.
IPM (integrated power module) trip.
Overcurrent trip.
Overspeed trip.
Feedback trip.
Motor overload (I2t) trip.
Overtemperature trip.
Drive overload (It) trip.
Following error trip.
Error input triggered.
Phase search error.
All other errors, including: Internal supply error, encoder
supply error, parameter restore failure, power base not
recognized.
If multiple errors occur at the same time, the lowest numbered error code will be
flashed. For example, a MicroFlex e100 which has tripped on both feedback
error (code 5) and over-current error (code 3) will flash error code 3. If the drive
is already displaying an error code when a new error with a lower code occurs,
the drive will start flashing the new code. Note that undervoltage trip does not
appear in the table because it is already indicated by the green/red flashing
state. If an undervoltage trip occurs in conjunction with another error, the drive
will flash the code of the additional error.
Further details about error codes can be found in the Mint WorkBench help file.
Press F1 and locate the Error Handling book.
Alternate red/green flashing:
Undervoltage warning (no AC power), but no errors are latched.
The DC-bus voltage has dropped below the powerbase undervoltage level (see
DRIVEBUSUNDERVOLTS). This error will only be generated if the drive is in the
enabled state. Check the AC power is connected.

7.2.4 Communication
Status LED is off:
H
Check that the 24VDC control circuit supply is connected correctly to connector X2 and is
switched on.
ETHERNET LEDs blinking green and red simultaneously:
H
Does the MicroFlex e100 have firmware in it? If you tried to download new firmware and the
download failed, the controller may not have firmware. Download new firmware.
Mint WorkBench fails to detect the MicroFlex e100:
H
Ensure that the MicroFlex e100 is powered and the Status LED is illuminated (see section
7.2.1).
H
Check that the Ethernet or USB cable is connected between the PC and MicroFlex e100.
H
Try an alternative cable or different port on the PC.
H
In the “Search up to Nodexx“ option in Mint WorkBench’s Select Controller dialog, check that
the MicroFlex e100’s node ID is not higher than the selected value, or search up to a greater
node ID.
H
For USB connections, check that the cable is properly connected. Check the USB connector
socket pins for damage or sticking. Check that the USB device driver has been installed; a
‘USB Motion Controller’ device should be listed in Windows Device Manager.
H
Check that the PC’s Ethernet port has been correctly configured for TCP/IP operation (see
section 6.2.4).
7.2.5 Power on
The Status LED is flashing red:
H
The MicroFlex e100 has detected a motion error. Click the Error button on the motion toolbar
to view a description of the error. Alternatively, select the Error Log tool to view a list of errors.
Click the Clear Errors button on the motion toolbar.
7.2.6 Mint WorkBench
The Spy window does not update:
H
The system refresh has been disabled. Go to the Tools, Options menu item, select the
System tab and then choose a System Refresh Rate (500ms is recommended).
Cannot communicate with the controller after downloading firmware:
H
After firmware download, always power cycle the MicroFlex e100 (remove 24V power and
then reconnect).
Mint WorkBench loses contact with MicroFlex e100 while connected using USB:
H
Check that the MicroFlex e100 is powered.
H
Check that a ‘USB Motion Controller’ device is listed in Windows Device Manager. If not,
there could be a problem with the PC’s USB interface.
MN1942
Troubleshooting 7-5
www.supportme.net
7.2.7 Tuning
Cannot enable the MicroFlex e100 because there is an error 10010:
H
Check the drive enable input on connector X3 pins 9 and 19 is connected and powered
correctly.
When the MicroFlex is enabled the motor is unstable:
H
Check that the load is firmly coupled to the motor.
H
Use the Mint WorkBench Drive Setup Wizard to confirm that the correct motor data has been
entered.
H
Use the Mint WorkBench Autotune Wizard to retune the motor.
H
If the motor is still unstable, select the Mint WorkBench Autotune Wizard once more. Click
Options.... On the Bandwidth tab, move the Current and/or Position and Speed Control
sliders to a slower position to select to a lower bandwidth. Click OK to exit and then start the
Autotune Wizard again.
7.2.8 Ethernet
Cannot connect to the drive over TCP/IP:
H
H
Check that there is not an EPL manager node (for example NextMove e100 with node ID
240) on the network. If there is a manager node on the network, then an EPL compatible
router must be used to allow TCP/IP communication on the EPL network.
Check that the PC’s Ethernet adapter has been correctly configured, as described in section
6.2.4.
The ETHERNET Powerlink network does not seem to be operating correctly:
H
Confirm that only one device on the newtork is set to be the ETHERNET Powerlink manager
node (node ID 240, selector switches LO = F, HI = 0).
H
Confirm that the reference source on all controlled nodes has been set to EPL in the Mint
WorkBench Operating Mode Wizard, and that the manager node has been configured
correctly. For a NextMove e100 manager node, this requires the System Config Wizard to be
used in Mint WorkBench.
Confirm that each device on the network has a different node ID.
H
H
Confirm that there are no more than 10 ‘daisy-chained’ devices on each branch of the
network.
7.2.9 CANopen
The CANopen bus is ‘passive’:
This means that the internal CAN controller in the MicroFlex e100 is experiencing a number of Tx
and/or Rx errors, greater than the passive threshold of 127. Check:
H
12-24V is being applied between pin 9 (+24V) and pin 6 or 3 (0V) of the CAN connector, to
power the opto-isolators.
H
There is at least one other CANopen node in the network.
H
The network is terminated only at the ends, not at intermediate nodes.
H
All nodes on the network are running at the same baud rate.
H
All nodes have been assigned a unique node ID.
7-6 Troubleshooting
MN1942
www.supportme.net
H
The integrity of the CAN cables.
The MicroFlex e100 should recover from the ‘passive’ state once the problem has been rectified
(this may take several seconds).
The CANopen bus is ‘off’:
This means that the internal CAN controller in the MicroFlex e100 has experienced a fatal
number of Tx and/or Rx errors, greater than the off threshold of 255. At this point the node will
have switched itself to a state whereby it cannot influence the bus. Check:
H
12-24V is being applied between pin 9 (+24V) and pin 6 or 3 (0V) of the CAN connector, to
power the opto-isolators.
H
There is at least one other CANopen node in the network.
H
The network is terminated only at the ends, not at intermediate nodes.
H
All nodes on the network are running at the same baud rate.
H
All nodes have been assigned a unique node ID.
H
The integrity of the CAN cables.
To recover from the ‘off’ state, the source of the errors must be removed and bus then reset. This
can be done using the Mint BUSRESET keyword, or by resetting the MicroFlex e100.
The Manager node cannot scan/recognize a node on the network using the Mint
NODESCAN keyword:
Assuming that the network is working correctly (see previous symptoms) and the bus is in an
‘Operational’ state, check:
H
Only nodes that conform to DS401, DS403 and other Baldor CANopen nodes are
recognized by the Mint NODESCAN keyword. Other types of node will be identified with a type
“unknown” (255) when using the Mint NODETYPE keyword.
H
Check that the node in question has been assigned a unique node ID.
H
The node must support the node guarding process. MicroFlex e100 does not support the
Heartbeat process.
H
Try power-cycling the node in question.
If the node in question does not conform to DS401 or DS403 and is not a Baldor CANopen node,
communication is still possible using a set of general purpose Mint keywords. See the Mint help
file for further details.
The node has been successfully scanned / recognized by the Manager node, but
communication is still not possible:
For communication to be allowed, a connection must be made to a node after it has been
scanned:
H
Baldor controller nodes are automatically connected to after being scanned.
H
Nodes that conform to DS401, DS403 must have the connections made manually using the
Mint CONNECT keyword.
If a connection attempt using CONNECT fails then it may be because the node being connected
to does not support an object which needs to be accessed in order to setup the connection.

A.1.4 Regeneration resistors
Depending on the application, MicroFlex e100 might require an external regeneration resistor to
be connected to pins R1 and R2 of connector X1. The regeneration resistor dissipates energy
during braking to prevent an over-voltage error occurring.
Baldor part number RG56 is recommended (56Ω, 44W). However, if the required dissipation is
greater than this, Baldor part number RG39 may be used, rated at 100W.

Control System
B.1 Introduction
The MicroFlex e100 can use two main control configurations:
H
Servo (Position).
H
Torque Servo (Current).
Each configuration supports different control modes, selected by using the Tools, Control Mode
menu item or by using the CONTROLMODE keyword in the Command window (see the Mint help
file). The control configurations are described in the following sections.
MN1942
Control System B-1
www.supportme.net
B.1.1 Servo configuration
The servo configuration is the default configuration for the drive, allowing the motor control
system to operate as a torque controller, a velocity controller or a position controller. This
configuration comprises 3 nested control loops; a current control loop, a velocity control loop and
a position control loop, as shown in Figure 51.
The universal encoder interface reads rotor position from the encoder and estimates velocity.
The commutation block uses the position to calculate the electrical angle of the rotor. The current
sensor system measures U and V phase currents. These are fed into a current conversion block
that converts them into quantities representing torque producing and magnetizing currents (the
’vector’ currents which are locked to the rotor).
In the current control loop, a current demand and the final measured current values form the
inputs to a PI (Proportional, Integral) control system. This control system generates a set of
voltage demands that are fed into a PWM (pulse-width modulation) block. The PWM block uses
the space-vector modulation method to convert these voltage demands into a sequence of U, V
and W phase switching signals, which are applied to the output bridge of the drive. The PWM
block uses the measured DC bus voltage to compensate for variations in supply voltage.
The torque controller converts a torque demand into a current demand and compensates for
various load non-linearities. A 2-stage notch or low-pass filter allows the effects of load
compliance to be reduced. To avoid motor damage, a user-defined application current limit is also
applied, as well as individual positive and negative torque limits.
In the velocity control loop, a velocity demand and measured velocity form the inputs to a PI
control system. The output of the control system is a torque demand which, when the drive is
operating as a velocity controller, forms the input to the current control loop.
Finally, in the position control loop, a position demand and measured position form the inputs to
a PID (Proportional, Integral, Differential) control system incorporating velocity feedback,
velocity feed-forward and acceleration feed-forward. The output of the position control system
is a velocity demand which, when the drive is operating as a position controller, forms the input
to the velocity control loop.

B.1.2 Torque servo configuration
Figure 52 shows the torque-servo control configuration. Here, the velocity loop has been
removed and the output of the position controller is fed into the current loop via the torque filters.
The torque servo configuration is useful when the drive is operating as a closed-loop position
controller and settling time must be minimized. Although the servo configuration tends to give
better velocity tracking when operating in position mode, settling times can be longer.
The control mode switch allows the drive to operate in either torque or position modes, but not
velocity mode.

CE Guidelines
C.1 Outline
This section provides general information
regarding recommended methods of installation
for CE compliance. It is not intended as an
exhaustive guide to good practice and wiring
techniques. It is assumed that the installer of the
MicroFlex e100 is sufficiently qualified to perform
the task, and is aware of local regulations and
requirements. Baldor products that meet the EMC
directive requirements are indicated with a “CE”
mark. A duly signed CE declaration of conformity
is available from Baldor.
C.1.1 EMC Conformity and CE marking
The information contained herein is for your guidance only and does not guarantee that the
installation will meet the requirements of the council directive 89/336/EEC.
The purpose of the EEC directives is to state a minimum technical requirement common to all the
member states within the European Union. In turn, these minimum technical requirements are
intended to enhance the levels of safety both directly and indirectly.
Council directive 89/336/EEC relating to Electro Magnetic Compliance (EMC) indicates that it is
the responsibility of the system integrator to ensure that the entire system complies with all
relative directives at the time of installing into service.
Motors and controls are used as components of a system, per the EMC directive. Hence all
components, installation of the components, interconnection between components, and
shielding and grounding of the system as a whole determines EMC compliance.
The CE mark informs the purchaser that the equipment has been tested and complies with the
appropriate standards. It rests upon the manufacturer or his authorized representative to ensure
the item in question complies fully with all the relative directives in force at the time of installing
into service, in the same way as the system integrator previously mentioned. Remember that it
is the instructions of installation and the product that should comply with the directive.
C.1.2 MicroFlex e100 compliance
When installed as directed in this manual, MicroFlex e100 units meet the emission limits for an
“industrial” environment, as defined by the EMC directives (EN61000-6-4: 2001). To meet the
more stringent emission limits of the “residential, commercial and light industrial” environment
(EN61000-6-3: 2001), the MicroFlex e100 must be mounted in a suitable metal cabinet
incorporating 360° screened cable glands.
MN1942
CE Guidelines C-1
www.supportme.net
C.1.3 Use of CE compliant components
The following points should be considered:
H
Using CE approved components will not guarantee a CE compliant system!
H
The components used in the drive, installation methods used, materials selected for
interconnection of components are important.
H
The installation methods, interconnection materials, shielding, filtering and earthing /
grounding of the system as a whole will determine CE compliance.
H
The responsibility of CE mark compliance rests entirely with the party who offers the end
system for sale (such as an OEM or system integrator).
C.1.4 EMC wiring technique
Cabinet
Using a typical electroplated zinc coated enclosure, connected to earth/ground, means that all
parts mounted on the back plane are connected to earth/ground and all outer shield (screen)
connections can be connected to earth/ground. Within the cabinet there should be a spatial
separation between power wiring (motor and AC power cables) and control wiring.
Shield (screen) connections
All connections between components must use shielded cables. The cable shields must be
connected to the enclosure. Use conductive clamps to ensure good earth/ground connection.
With this technique, a good earth/ground shield can be achieved.
EMC filters
The filter should be mounted next to the MicroFlex e100. The connections between the MicroFlex
e100 and the filter should use shielded (screened) cables. The cable shields should be
connected to shield clamps at both ends.
Earthing/grounding
For safety reasons (VDE0160), all Baldor components must be connected to earth/ground with
a separate wire. Earth/ground connections must be made from the central earth/ground (star
point) to the regeneration resistor enclosure and from the central earth/ground (star point) to the
power supply.
C-2 CE Guidelines
MN1942
www.supportme.net
C.1.5 EMC installation suggestions
To ensure electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), the following installation points should be
considered to help reduce interference:
H
Earthing/grounding of all system elements to a central earth/ground point (star point)
H
Shielding of all cables and signal wires
H
Filtering of power lines.
A proper enclosure should have the following characteristics:
H
All metal conducting parts of the enclosure must be electrically connected to the back plane.
These connections should be made with an earthing/grounding strap from each element to
a central earthing/grounding point (star point). *
H
Keep the power wiring (motor and power cable) and control wiring separated. If these wires
must cross, be sure they cross at 90 degrees to minimize noise due to induction.
H
The shield connections of the signal and power cables should be connected to the shield
rails or clamps. The shield rails or clamps should be conductive clamps fastened to the
cabinet. **
H
The cable to the regeneration resistor must be shielded. The shield must be connected to
earth/ground at both ends.
H
The location of the AC filter has to be situated close to the drive so the AC power wires are
as short as possible.
H
Wires inside the enclosure should be placed as close as possible to conducting metal,
cabinet walls and plates. It is advised to terminate unused wires to chassis ground.*
H
To reduce earth/ground current, use the largest suitable wire available for earth/ground
connections.
*
Earthing/grounding in general describes all metal parts which can be connected to a
protective conductor, e.g. housing of cabinet, motor housing, etc. to a central earth/ground
point (star point). This central earth/ground point (star point) is then connected to the main
plant (or building) earth/ground.

Or run as twisted pair at minimum.
