The ETH-100 External Ethernet Interface provides Ethernet connectivity to Toshiba 7-series, 9-series or VF-nC1 Adjustable Speed Drives (ASDs). The ETH-100 provides an IEEE 802.3 10BaseT Ethernet port and three common serial ports for direct connectivity to Toshiba 7-series, 9-series, VF-nC1 Adjustable Speed Drives (ASDs). The Ethernet port accepts standard CAT5-type 8-conductor unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) patch cables.
There are three common serial (aka logic level) ports for connection of Toshiba 7-series, 9-series, 11-series or VF-nC1 ASDs. ASD connections use the same standard RJ45 style 8-conductor UTP patch cables: any standard CAT5 Ethernet cable (found in most electronics stores) 5 meters or less in length can be used. ASD connections are automatically established and continuously monitored: no drive configuration needs to be performed to connect the unit to the drives. Just plug it in - it's that simple.
A per-port and per-point 2-level configurable network timeout action can be programmed that allows each internal point to have its own unique "fail-safe" condition in the event of a network interruption.
The ETH-100 provides flexible mapping between Modbus TCP/IP registers and Toshiba ASD registers. This is accomplished through an element called the point database. The point database is entirely user-configurable, and provides the end-to-end mapping information that allows Modbus TCP/IP requests to be routed to the correct locations on the connected Toshiba ASD's. When properly configured, the ETH-100 will allow a Modbus TCP/IP master to engage in a seamless dialogue with connected Toshiba ASD's. Point databases can be uploaded/downloaded to/from the unit using the Xmodem serial protocol, allowing the user to clone ETH-100's with the same configuration.
