Configuration of Altivar ATV630 Drive to a M5ontr80 through the DTM Browser in Ecostruxure Control Expert

Objective
Demonstrate a M580 with RSTP RIO drop with a ATV630U07M3 off of service port on a BMECRA31210. Demonstrate usage of SoMove to connect and set the Parameter List – Port MB TCP – Generic Settings & Protocol & Drive Profiles. Demonstrate usage of SoMove to update the Parameters Layout – Command and Reference. Demonstrate addition of the ATV630 to the DTM Browser tool to integrate drive control from the M580 in an Animation Table. Demonstrate setting DRIVECOM command register and the Line Frequency Reference to bring the drive and motor to life.

This is not intended as a training course but more of a high level ‘How To’ in integrating an Altivar drive into a M580 via DTM Browser. All IP addresses for the M580 are default IP addresses when starting a new project. User Windows options may be slightly differ from the screenshots provided in this document.
