Can I control a drive via terminals and still monitor over a serial communication network?

Published date: 10 January 2019

Customer wants to use terminal interface controls to control an Altivar drive but wants to be able to pull telemetry via a serial communication port.

Product Line:
All Altivar drives.

All models, All serial numbers

Clarification of drive capabilities.


This is possible on all Altivar drives that support serial communication.   Configure the control and reference channels to use the remote terminals but also configure the communication port to communicate with your controller.   On some models it is even possible to control via one network port (Ethernet, Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU .. .) and monitor via another.
