Well you dont seem to want to upload your parameter file for me to look at to see if there is any issues in it.
There may not be but I dont think its commutation as the drives can compensate if you tell them to and you said you have.
I have set up quite a few motors that were not intended to run off these drives and not had a problem. As long as you have an encoder with the correct commutation signals/ pole count then you only need the data asked for in the motor file.
I currently have a motor on an Ultra 200 drive that originally had a resolver on it, it runs the spindle on my manual lathe and it was no problem t set up.
 I have also set up 2 Yaskawas one which I had to fit a new encoder on and also an indramat that was resolver and I put an encoder on it. All were straightforward to do although I chose to line up the encoder rather than let the drive offset. However it does work as I have offset it before actually rotating it physically and it worked fine.

Motor file looks fine with the exception of the hall offset but think you said you had changed that, would set to zero and see anyway.
What I was also wanting was the drives parameter file.
If there is no problem with it you will really need a scope to see if the wiring is correct with respect to the halls, I dont think it will be wrong as I think you said the drive said commutation was not needing offset but a scope would confirm.

I think the problem is that the AB drive does comutation in a CW direction and the motor does it in CCW.  The only way I can see to even get close will be to scope it see IF it can be done.

It may be that the encoder will have to be shifted as well AND I believe the Halls are part of the encoder on this motor. May not be able to do what needs to be done.

I think this is the Drives FIle.


Thanks For the help, (;-) TP

I am sure you can invert the commutation in the motor profile.

THe manual recommended using Hall/hall but I will give it a try.

No you will need to use HALL/HALL, it was the invert bit I was meaning. The only reason the ABS is in that pic is because its that as default in the custom profile and I only opened it to look to see where the invert was.

It attempts to start/spin but then errors out on a commutation angle error.

Will have a look at your parameter file when I get home tonight, bit busy at the moment.
