Connecting to a Parker SSD or
Eurotherm Drive using DSE Lite &
Extracting Drive Parameters.
Welcome to SDS Ltd.’s Step-by-Step guide in how to connect &
Extract from your Parker, SSD or Eurotherm AC Inverter Drive or DC
Thyristor Drive.
Things you will need:
•
PARKER PC TO DRIVE PROGRAMMING LEAD - ISOLATED - SURGE PROTECTED - LA387599
•
ATEN UC- 232A USB to SERIAL PORT Adapter (only if your computer doesn’t have a serial
port)
•
DSE-LITE - AC/DC Drive Configuration/Programming Software installed on your laptop or
desktop PC.

Step 1.
Open up the latest version of DSE Lite on your Laptop or Desktop. This may be saved as a
shortcut on your desktop. However, if it is not go to;
Start>
All Programs>
SSD Drives>
DSE Lite.
DSE Lite, when opened, should look similar to this;

Step 2.
Check if you laptop has Serial Port Connection. Examples of Laptop serial ports can be seen below;
If you’re computer or laptop PC does have a serial port, plug your LA387599 PC to Drive comms lead
into this port as seen below;
www.sdsdrives.com | 0117 9381800 | info@sdsdrives.com
Control. Everywhere.
If you’re computer or laptop PC does not have a serial port, you will need to USB to SERIAL PORT
Adapter. As seen below;
Connect the male and female ends of the serial
adapter and your LA387599 comms lead.
Once connected, plug the USB end of the adapter into your laptop or PC’s USB Port;

Control. Everywhere.
Step 3.
You need to open a default template of the drive that you’re trying to extract from. E.g. If you have a
Eurotherm 605 Inverter, you need to open a 605 DSE Configuration Template to extract onto.
In this case, we are going to extract parameters from a 690+ Inverter.
To do this click;
Open>
New>
690P> --------------------------------------------------------------- (or whatever drive you have)
Ver5> ----------------------------------------------------- (or Latest version of your drive)
DEFULT5.690> ------------------------------- (will be different for every drive)
You should see something like this;

Step 4.
Plug the RJ45 data plug end of the LA387599 comms lead into the P3 Port on the drive.
Please note: the drive
must be powered up
and should NOT be
running when trying to
connect.

Step 5.
We are now looking to connect with the drive in order to perform the extract onto the Default
template.
Ways to do this can differ depending on whether your computer or laptop has a serial port or
whether you are connecting to the drive via a USB adapter.
IF USING USB ADAPTER;
Firstly, go to…
Start>
Control Panel>
Once in Control Panel, Find “Device Manager”. Depending on what version of Windows your
computer runs off, you may be able to find this under “Devices and Printers” > “Device Manager”.
www.sdsdrives.com | 0117 9381800 | info@sdsdrives.com
Control. Everywhere.
Once found, you should
see a window similar to
this;
Then, Click the “Ports (COM & LPT)” down Arrow and see what COM port you are currently plugged
into.

Control. Everywhere.
Step 6.
Once you’ve confirmed
what COM port you are
plugged into (in Device
Manager), return to DSE
Lite.
Select the “Comm port”
Button and select the
same COM as shown in
your Device Manager.
Then – select;
“Command”
“Refresh Full”

Control. Everywhere.
Now look at the scratch pad on DSE Lite. You’re looking to see if you are connected to the drive.
Usually shown as “690 version 4.2 (NOT Running)”
Or whatever your drive is. E.g. If you have a 650V version 5.0 then you'll see “650V version 5.0 (NOT
Running).

Step 8.
Lastly, we need to extract drive parameters from selected drive into current configuration.
Do this by Selecting;
“Command”>
“Extract Drive Parameters”>
You may see the following
error message (or
something similar). Select
“Yes”
At this point, you should see a green
loading bar at the bottom-right hand
side of your page;

Step 9.
Extracting a pre-configured drive program onto a default drive template will often mean that some
links will go to different pages. This is normal.
Once extracted, simply “File” > “Save Copy As”
Save the configuration.
