PowerXL DG1

Welcome to the Eaton online learning center featuring the PowerXL DG1 series drive.

 

Default Digital and Analog Inputs

  • Turn on the power switch to power the demo drive located directly next to the power input cord.
  • The DO1 output is assigned to the “Ready” parameter of the drive. When illuminated, the drive is in “Ready” status, meaning it will accept input commands.
  • The drive's default control reference point is the keypad, meaning start, stop, and speed reference commands can only be issued through the keypad.
  • Turn DI8 on to change the drives control reference point to the I/O terminals.
  • The control panel is now active. Turn DI1 on to send a “Forward/Start” signal to the drive.
  • Use the “AI2” potentiometer to adjust the current being supplied to the motor, which, in turn, will adjust the speed of the motor.
  • DI5 and DI6 are programmed to preset speed parameters. Turn on DI5 to activate preset speed #1 of 5 hertz.
  • Deactivate preset speed 1.
  • Turn on DI6 to activate preset speed #2 of 10 hertz.
  • Preset speeds summate when simultaneously active. Turn on both DI5 and DI6.
  • The resulting frequency output of 15Hz is the summation of preset speeds #1 (5Hz) and #2 (10Hz)
  • Turn off DI1. This deactivates the “FORWARD/RUN“ signal being sent to the drive.
  • Turn on DI2 to begin spinning the motor in reverse. This sends a “REVERSE/RUN” signal to the drive.

Safety

  • DG1 drives are equipped with a Safe-Torque Off (STO) feature, which offers greater personnel safety and equipment protection compared to an emergency stop fault.
  • The STO feature is an integrated circuit in the drive that is physically opened when STO is active, rather than a parameter in the drive's programming.
  • Open the STO circuit by pressing the STO red push button.
  • Close the STO circuit by pressing the STO button.
  • Clear the fault by clicking-and-holding the “BACK/RESET” button on the drive.
  • The STOP button on the keypad of the drive is always active regardless of the control reference point. (Note: This feature can be deactivated through the parameter menus.)
  • Click the STOP button to stop the motor. This removes the “RUN” signal from the drive which had been activated through DI2.
  • Turn off DI2 to disable reverse mode.
  • Restart the drive and put it in forward mode by turning on DI1. A new “RUN” signal was sent to the drive.

Keypad Control

  • Turn off DI5 and DI6 to remove the preset speed inputs to the drive.
  • Deactivate the I/O panel by turning off DI8. This will reset the drives control reference to the keypad.
  • Press the START button on the keypad to send a “FORWARD/START” signal to the drive.
  • Notice that the motor does not start spinning. This is because the keypad's reference frequency is set to 0.00.
  • Use the keypad to navigate to the Operate Mode menu and change the keypad frequency reference. First select “O: Operate Mode”, then select “R12: Keypad Reference”.
  • Press OK to edit the value, then use the Up/Down arrow keys to change the value to 20Hz. Press OK to save the new reference frequency.
  • The motor is now spinning at 20Hz.
  • Press the right soft-key to return to the main menu screen.
  • Reactivate the control panel by pressing the “LOCAL/REMOTE” button on the keypad.
  • Confirm the control reference place by pressing right or ok on the keypad.

Analog Input Adjustment

  • As you may have noticed, the AI1 input does not change the motor's speed. This is because the default remote frequency reference is set to Analog Input 2.
  • Change the remote frequency reference by following the below menu pathway.
  • First select “P: Parameters”, then select “P1: Basic Parameters”.
  • Finally, select “P1.14: Remote 1 Reference” and Press OK
  • Activate the field by pressing right or OK on the keypad.
  • Notice that you cannot edit the parameter as it is locked. This is because the drive is receiving a "RUN" signal from DI1. Turn DI1 off to be able to edit the parameter.
  • Activate the field by pressing right or OK on the keypad, then use the Up/Down arrow keys to change to “AI1” and press OK.
  • Once AI1 is confirmed, press the right soft-key to return to the main menu.

  • Add Min Frequency, Fan Control, and PID1 Keypad Set point to the favorites menu by navigating the parameter menus and clicking the left soft-key.
  • To add Min Frequency, First enter “P: Parameters”, then select “P1: Basic Parameters”, then “P1.1: Min Frequency”.
  • Use the left Soft-key to add the item to the favorites menu. Then press the right soft-key to return to the main menu.
  • To add Fan Control, First enter “P: Parameters”, then select “P21:System”, then select “P21.1: Basic Settings”, then select “P21.1.14: Fan control”.
  • Use the left Soft-key to add the item to the favorites menu. Then press the right soft-key to return to the main menu.
  • To add PID 1 Keypad Set point, First enter “P: Parameters”, then select “P10: PID Controller 1”.
  • Note that the parameter P10: PID Controller 1 is not visible and cannot be selected. This is because the drive is currently set to the basic application setting.
  • Certain parameters, such as PID controller, are not available within the basic application menus. When the Multi-purpose application is active for example, all parameters are visible and editable.
  • Blocking parameters helps ensure that users are only setting the parameters necessary for the specific application.
  • Changing drive applications will not covered in this demo, however more information is available in the product manuals and trainings.
  • Press the right soft-key to return to the main menu, then enter the favorites menu to see the two parameters that were added.
  • These parameters can be changed from this menu. Select Min Frequency and change it to 10.00 hertz. This will not allow the motor to drop below 10 Hz when running.
