Nope - just makes it easier to wire.

Modbus / Re: WJ200 low and high range hex frequency data

Your data will be different than anyone else depending on whats in your registers.

First open the comm - if it says no error you are communicating. Then select holding coils and read 8 of them. You will see their output on the right.

If you have it working and load sinji's brain. Type M3 and you will see the motor start up.

You cannot use a USB to RS-485 adapter.
I never used or recommended one.

You need a 9 pin serial RS-232 - RS-485 adapter.

Hi. Yep still here.

The WJ200 does not use the RJ45 port for modbus - it uses the two pins as noted in the manual. That $5 rs232-to rs485 adapter and a two conductor wire should be all you need.

I have it working via modbus and mach but the brains file needs work to control the 60hz motor I have. You might be fine with a spindle that is 400hz.

Couple of WJ200 setting things important to remember.

If you are using a brand new drive - Do the power test and verify the Drive works.

Then when ready, connect up and change:
A001 to 03
A002 to 03
Verify all your settings for com speed (c071 to c078)
then once everything is set/stored/saved
POWER OFF YOUR WJ200, wait 5 min (I waited about 1 min and it was fine), Then POWER IT BACK ON (or reset it) - You need to do that before Modbus control will work
TX+ on RS485 adapter to SP on the Hitachi WJ200
TX- on RS485 adapter to SN on Hitachi WJ200
Verify your serial port settings on the PC, make sure they match the inverter, and set those in Mach as well.

OK I confirmed I cannot run Modbus using the RJ45 on the WJ200. Works perfect on the terminals though. This is kind of nice because you can run the op panel on the RJ45 and still control via modbus on the terminals

I also did not need a fancy modbus controller. In fact mine was less than $6 shipped. Search for "New 9 PIN RS-232 to RS-485 Adapter Interface Converter" from seller id eherebuy in Roselle Park, New Jersey, United States if you want to see the exact one I bought.

I have it working off a built in serial port on one computer and a PCI Rosewill RC-03 2serial1Parallel card from amazon installed in a second computer. Both work great.



A link for as long as it will work to the RS485 adapter I confirmed worked with a WJ200

A call to Hitachi confirmed that on the WJ200 the RJ45 port is NOT for the modbus connection. Here it is in the manual as well.

Bringing this topic back up.

I am trying to figure out how to make teh WJ200 work with modbus.

My setup will be different - I will be running mine with a 60hz 2.5hp 3phase Baldor I am putting on a rong fu 30 mill drill.

I really want to understand how modbus works rather than just configuring it.

I watched the Mach videos from Peter but they are centered around his modio card his utility rather than setting them up manually.

Any advice on a easy to learn approach to setting this up?

Also - Are you guys using the RJ45 connector on the WJ200 for modbus? The manual reads like you have to use the SN/SP terminals.  Says the RJ45 is only for remote operator.

Did anyone find a cheap modbus adapter rs232 to rs485 they KNOW works with the WJ200? I have one that works with my X200 but was not sure on the WJ200.
