Parameters

1.1

General
The program enables parameter changes in a defined memory section. The permitted number
range of each parameter is monitored during input and limited accordingly. A distinction is made
between changeable parameters (e.g. maximum speed, direction of rotation or control device
parameters) and the display parameters that show various operating values (e.g. current speed,
current reference value, etc.).
When the MFC 20 frequency inverter is put into operation, the following display appears:

Lift Equip
MFC 20 - 105 V5.x
This display of the program version number appears for only 15 seconds.
In the event of any queries to the plant, specify this program version number.
If one of the buttons is operated during the 15 seconds, the display of the version number is
cancelled immediately and the selected function is executed.
If you wait for the 15 seconds to elapse, the first available parameter is displayed.

P 0 reference value start delay


500 ms
The operating time of the display lighting is set to 2 hours after the last button was pressed.
The first time a button pressed after the lighting has switched off switches the lighting on again,
but this has no effect on the parameter function.
The contrast can be set using the potentiometer.

Parameters - Operation

In the first line is the parameter number with a brief description of the selected parameter; the
second line contains the current value with its physical unit. A cursor appears under the
parameter number.
The + and - buttons can now be used to select the desired parameter number. Moving the
cursor with the Cursor button enables selection in steps of ten or a hundred.

P 5 P gain

Pressing the Parameter button moves the cursor to the numerical value and the number value
can be changed.

P 5 P gain
8.1
There is an underscore beneath the lowest-value position of the numerical value. This
underscore marks that position which is changed by +1 when the + button is operated and
changed by -1 when the - button is operated. Operating the Cursor button moves this
marking one position to the left. This enables a rapid change to the parameter across a broad
number range.
If the + or - button is pressed for longer than 2 seconds, the parameter value is changed in a
0.25 second cycle by +1 or -1.
Some parameters, e.g. P 7 - language, do not have a number as value, rather a list selection.

English

Here, too, the entry can be changed using the + and - buttons.
Danger
The change to the parameter values only takes effect when the change is confirmed by
pressing the "Parameters" button!

The display parameters show operating parameters e.g. the current speed of the motor. The
desired parameter is selected as described in chapter 1.2.1, Displaying and changing the
parameters, page 1-2.

The displayed value, in this case the reference speed, is continuously updated.
1.2.3

Saving the changed parameters in the EPROM

Note
Without saving the data, the parameter changes are lost when the MFC 20 device is switched
off!

After the Save button is pressed, the following display appears:

Save values?
(+) = yes, (-) = no

Note
If the Save button was operated inadvertently, the save operation can be cancelled using the
- button (No). The + button (Yes) saves all the parameters in the EPROM.

During saving, the following display appears:

Saving data
... Please wait ...
During the save operation, the control voltage must not be switched off. If this does occur, all
parameters are to be checked and, if necessary, corrected.

All parameters to factory settings


This function can be used to recover the original values of all parameters at any time. If the
Parameters button and Save button are pressed simultaneously, the following prompt
appears on the display:

Load original value?


(+) = yes, (-) = no
If the function was started inadvertently, the operation can be cancelled using the - button
(No). If the + (Yes) button is operated, all the parameters are returned to the factory values.
Note
However, these preprogrammed factory values have not yet been saved. This means that
after switching the MFC 20 frequency inverter off and on again without prior saving (1.2.3
Saving the changed parameters in the EPROM, page 1-4), the old values take effect once
again.

If all parameters are in their original state, the following display appears:

! Original values have !


! not been saved yet !
1.2.5

Individual parameters on the factory settings


If a parameter is to be set to the factory value, the parameter must be displayed as described in
chapter 1.2.1, Displaying and changing the parameters, page 1-2. After operating the
Parameters button (to change the value), if the + and - buttons are pressed simultaneously,
the factor value appears in the display. Other parameters are not changed here.

Parameters
The parameters are subdivided into:
Changeable parameters (see chapter 1.4.1 Changeable parameters, page 1-8) that can change
the characteristics of the device.
Display parameters (see chapter 1.4.2 Display parameters, page 1-28) that indicate the various
operating modes.
Note
Depending on the software version, not all parameters are always present.

1.4.1

Changeable parameters
P 0: reference value start delay time tSTS
In the case of elevators without brake acknowledgement, the delay time between activation of
the brake and release of the drive can be set here.
This means the reference value is only started when the brake is opened. Values between 50
and 5000 ms can be set. The typical value lies between 300 ms and 800 ms.
In the case of installations with brake acknowledgement, this value must be set to 5000 ms.
This means that the reference value start is dependent on the brake acknowledgement.

Parameters - Parameters

P 1: brake application time (brake off time) tBE


Setting of the delay time between electrical deactivation of the brake by EBS and mechanical
gripping of the brake. Once this period has elapsed, the frequency inverter is shut down
electrically (control device interlock). Values between 50 and 5000 ms can be set.
P 3: direction of rotation
The direction of rotation of the motor can be changed with this parameter. The parameter can
only be set to "not inverted" or inverted.

3 direction of
rotation
not inverted

Changing this parameter leads to an immediately change in the direction of rotation.


P 4: control direction
a) Asynchronous motor
For the speed controller, it is important that the polarities of the speed reference values and
speed list values are correct in relation to one another.
If this is not the case, the motor rotates non-controlled at low speed.
Parameter P 4 can reverse the control direction. The parameter can only be set to "not inverted"
or inverted. Changing this parameter has the same effect as swapping two phases of the
motor line.
b) Synchronous motor
This parameter is not present on the MFC 21/31 (synchronous motors).
In the case of synchronous motors, the motor connections U, V, W must be connected is exactly
the right way, as otherwise the assignment to the encoder and to the location of the magnets
(poles) is not correct, i.e. the control direction cannot be reversed by swapping 2 phases.
P 5: speed controller P gain
The speed control characteristics of the drives can be set here (setting values 0 .. 64.6)
P 6: speed controller I gain
Same as P5, but for the I proportion (setting values 0 ... 9999).
The lowest effective value is 4 ms.
If the I proportion is to be disabled, 0 ms must be entered.

These parameters have a direct effect on the calculated rated speed of the motor (P 17) and
thus on the speed of the elevator.

P 13: gear reduction


If a drive with gear is used, the reduction ratio of the gear is set here.
In the case of gearless drives, the reduction ratio = 1.0. The speed reduction for gears if
frequently specified as a ratio (e.g. 50:2). The input at P 13, however, must be in decimal form
(50:2 -> 25,0).
P 14: diameter of traction sheave
The diameter of the traction sheave of the drive is set here in millimetres.
P 15: suspension
In the same way as the gear reduction, the number of suspensions is also a reduction ratio. This

P 17: calculated maximum speed n rated


The values of the parameters P 13 to P 16 are used to automatically calculate and display the
required maximum speed of the motor.
P 18: threshold for N=0
If the speed set here is undershot, the end of the run has been reached. The EBS relay deenergises (printed circuit board TIC/X1 , terminals 1a and 2a).
P 19: acceleration change (jerk)
Set the desired acceleration change (jerk) in [m/s].
P 20: acceleration
Set the desired acceleration / deceleration in [m/s2].
P 21: acceleration pre-control on/off
If the drive tends to overshoot or undershoot, the travel quality can be improved by enabling the
acceleration pre-control.
This applies above all to gearless drives.
P 22: acceleration pre-control gain
To assess the right setting of the acceleration pre-control, the actual speed value (P 10 to 0)
should be measured at measuring point 42A and the n-controller output (P 11 to 7) should be
measured at measuring point 43A.

Parameter for speed setting

The selection of one of the five main speeds is made at the inputs at connector X1 of the
TIC printed circuit board.

With simultaneous selection of vi or v0 and another main speed, the following applies:
the inspection speed vi is dominant,
i.e. as soon as vi is selected, the other speeds are ignored.
the levelling speed v0 can always be selected; it only takes effect if no other speed remains
active.

With a currently selected speed, monitoring of the reference-actual value variance is carried
out ("tolerance band monitoring"). If this deviation is too great, an emergency stop is
initiated.

At inspection speed Vi and emergency operation speed V3, however, an emergency stop is
only initiated if the amount of the actual value is greater than 130% of the target value in
each case.

For all travel curve sections (acceleration, deceleration, lower and upper roundings), the
same acceleration and jerk value applies.

The stopping distance from withdrawal of the levelling speed v0 to "Electrical Halt" (speed
zero) depends only on the value v0 and the set jerk value of the running characteristic curve.
The parameter of this stopping distance cannot be set separately.
Example: v0 = 0.1 m/s, jerk = 0.8 m/s -> stopping distance: 35 mm.

The short run function is only possible for the rated speed vrated.

The levelling speed v0 is typically selected as 0.1 m/s; with lower values of v0, the "levelling
duration" can become very high.

Improvement of the startup characteristics with asynchronous motors with the help of load
measurement device LMS 1
Reverse rotation of an elevator car on opening the brake can be reduced by specifying an initial
torque.
This is specified either with the help of a load measurement device LMS 1 or it can be specified
only for a single certain load state if no load measurement device is available.

and a fixed value can be entered at P 54.
In P 48 and P 49, do not enable "LMS" (i.e. do not select <1>).
Bear in mind that the values in P 51 and P 52 must not be the same, as the internal calculation
is performed with the formula [(P 51 - P 52) x P 54].

P 51: current value / load measurement "measured value of load measurement device"
The current elevator car load condition in % of the rated load is displayed here.
(with load compensation of the elevator car, usually approx. 45%).
Note
A requirement is that the load measurement device LMS 1 has been correctly adjusted in
advance.
P 52: value LMS 1/load compensation "input value for load compensation"
The load state for load compensation must be entered here. This can be determined
experimentally as follows:
1.

Set up load compensation


(elevator car must not coast away with brake opened)

2.

In P 51, read the current value of the LMS 1

3.

Enter the value in P 52


or enter a value based on experience, e.g. 45% means that the counterweight
is 45% of the rated load.
P 53: adopt load current "calculate gain load measurement from load current"
During constant running with electrical recall (e.g. empty up or down), the current load current is
displayed.
By pressing the + or - button during this constant run, the load specification gain is
calculated internally from this current value.
The value in P 54 is overwritten.
P 54: load specification gain "load measurement gain"
The value (with prefix) of the gain calculated via P 53 is specified here. Any fine calibration that
might be necessary can be performed here.
Improving the startup characteristics with synchronous motors with the help of the position

P 55: position controller gain (without load measurement) (only with synchronous)
The startup characteristics of synchronous gearless drives is improved in such a way that the
converter no longer needs to be fed a load measurement signal from a sensor. To achieve this,
the high-resolution position signal from the sine / cosine encoder is used.

A position-controller algorithm replaces the pre-control signal previously obtained from the load
sensor: directly after impulse enabling and opening of the brake, the position controller holds the
elevator car in its current financial position. Parameter P 55 can be used to set the gain of the
intervention. The position controller is disabled at the start of the running characteristic curve
and control is handed over to the speed controller.

that there is no reverse rotation; where possible, select low values. Check the selected setting
for the startup characteristics in the other direction of travel and adjust P 55 in such a way that,
where possible, there is no starting jerk. Values of P 55 = 0...100.0 can be selected. "0" means

P 86: encoder adjustment (only for synchronous motors, MFC 21-xx, MFC 31-xx)
As the incremental encoder (absolute sine-cosine-encoder) on the synchronous machine not
only determines the speed (impulses per motor revolution) but also the absolute location of the
rotor, an additional encoder adjustment must be carried out after replacement of the incremental
encoder.
The encoder does not have to be aligned manually. It is sufficient when it is mounted in a fixed
position. After carrying out the encoder adjustment (aligning the rotor), the calibration takes
place by saving in the EEPROM of the encoder. The data is retained even after the supply
voltage is switched off.
Preparation:

Set up load compensation in the elevator system. If there is no load compensation, the
encoder could be incorrectly adjusted.

Set the elevator system to electrical recall

Check whether 2048 ENDAT is selected in P 96

Execution:

Set P 86 operation mode motor


from <0> normal operation
to <1> align rotor.
The ready LED goes out for a few seconds because a reset is carried out.

After the ready LED lights up again, wait approx. 2 seconds for the initialisation.

Initiate recall operation up or down (impulse enabling for the converter). The brake opens. A
motor current is set and this aligns the rotor (minor self-aligning rotational movement). Wait
until the rotor comes to a standstill.

Either release the recall switch and allow the brake to engage or - better - keep the recall
switch pressed and use your other hand to initiate the next step (only release the recall
switch when the ready LED goes out and the brake engages).

Set P 86 operation mode motor from <1> align rotor


to <2> save reference.

P 86 operation mode motor automatically switches back to <0> normal operation after a
few seconds.
The ready LED goes out for a few seconds because a reset is carried out.
This concludes the adjustment operation.

Warning
P 92: discharge DC circui
Before working on the frequency inverters or motor connections, the DC circuit must be
discharged in the interests of safety (see part 1).
This function parameter displays the intermediate circuit voltage in Volts. Simultaneously
pressing the + and - buttons starts a function that activates the chopper resistor in cycles
and thus discharges the DC circuit capacitor. The discharge operation can be accelerated if
the P/W button is pressed at the same time.
Discharging the DC circuit only works if the signal QSP = 0, i.e. the mains contactor has
de-energised and the brake resistor is not defective.
On installations where the contactors are not positioned between the mains and frequency
inverter rather between the motor and frequency inverter, the power supply must be
switched off before discharging the DC circuit. However, the control voltage must remain on
until the DC circuit has been discharged.
P 96: number of encoder marks
The selection of the number of encoder marks is made here.
The number of marks of the deployed encoder can be read off in the vicinity of the encoder on

Safety instructions

A) Qualified personnel
Work on the MFC 20 frequency inverters may only be carried out by trained persons.
These persons must comply with the relevant accident prevention regulations and be aware of
the dangers of electrical current.

B) Work on the frequency inverter


To work on the frequency inverter (except for setting up procedures using the operating
keyboard) or the motor, the following measures are required:

shut down

secure against reactivation

determine that there is no voltage

C) Determining there is no voltage


Particular attention is to be paid to the fact that even after the mains voltage has been
switched off there can still be electrical energy in the device (capacitor charge).
This applies in particular in the case of a defective device.
For this reason, a check for residual voltage must be carried out before starting any work on
the frequency inverter.
To check for residual voltage, a suitable multimeter (at least 800 V direct current) can be used
to directly measure the intermediate circuit voltage at terminal block X1, terminals 22 and 23.

Note
Set the measuring instrument to the direct current range (DC)!
Work on an opened device with applied intermediate circuit voltage
(approx. 700 V DC) is only to be performed in exceptional cases and only with the greatest
caution.
Here, particular attention is to be paid to the fact that the intermediate circuit voltage has a
fixed potential relationship to the mains voltage and to the protective earth.

2.2

Notes on operation

Note
The frequency inverters contain components that are subject to electrostatic risks. Before
performing service work on the frequency inverters (e.g. replacement of printed circuit boards),
the service personnel must eliminate static charges by touching an earthed metallic surface.

Warning
In the event of incorrect assignment of the frequency inverter to the motor, the frequency
inverter or the motor can be damaged.
Frequently cyclical switching on and off of the frequency inverter can lead to an overload of
the internal charging resistors. This is to avoided by allowing the corresponding breaks.

2.3

2-2

Notes: before switching on for the first time

Check the wiring to the frequency inverter and to the motor (including incremental encoder)

Check the electromagnetic compatibility of the earthing of the cable screens

Check of the correct protective earthing of all assemblies (frequency inverter, motor,
housing and brake resistor)

Check of the mains voltage

The brake must operable and correctly set

If necessary, lead the elevator car with a half load (load compensation)

Check of the functional capability of the drives

Specify the inspection speed vi in upward or downward direction.


The drive must move in the corresponding direction with the desired inspection speed.
If the drive moves at the right speed but in the wrong direction, use parameter P 3 "direction of
rotation" to invert the direction.
If the drive is not smooth or does not move at the right speed,
a) for asynchronous motors use parameter P 4 "control direction" to invert the control
direction.
b) for synchronous motors perform an encoder adjustment (see P 86).
If the inspection speed is not reached despite changing the control direction, check whether
the incremental encoder is correctly inserted and/or the number of encoder marks is correct,
see chapter 1.4.2 , page 1-28.

2.7

Optimisation of the drive


A) Speed controller
The parameters P 5 "speed controller P gain" (default value 8) and P 6 "speed controller I gain"
(default value 50 ms) are available to optimise the speed actual value running characteristic
curve.
Perform this optimisation step by step.
If necessary, set the I gain right down to 0 and the P gain until the drive runs without any
tendency to rock.
Note
It should be borne in mind that with the I gain" setting equal to "0 a sustained deviation in the
actual speed occurs depending on the load direction, i.e. under certain circumstances the
drive cannot accelerate in the load direction or even drifts in the wrong direction.
The P gain should have a safety clearance to the above tendency to rock (approx. factor 2
smaller).
For normal operation, an I gain not equal to 0 is to be set again.

Commissioning - Optimisation of the drive

Experience has shown that the given default values


(P = 8 and I = 50 ms for asynchronous and P = 2 and I = 70 ms for synchronous) already result
in very good travel quality.
To assess the running characteristic curve, a recorder can be connected to MP 42A or MP 43A
of the TMI printed circuit board. The common reference point is MP 26 or the housing of the
frequency inverter.
The selection of the measurement signals available at these display outputs is made using the
parameters P 10 or P 11, see chapter 1 Parameters, page 1-1.
Example:
with the value "0" in P 10, the speed actual value with prefix is displayed at MP 42A.
For minimizing reverse rotation on opening the brake at start, a higher P proportion (P 205) and
a "faster" J proportion (P 206) can be specified.
B) Run at rated speed
To optimise the rated travel, the acceleration and acceleration change (jerk) can be changed
with the parameters P 19 and P 20.
Note
Important here is that, in accordance with the selected acceleration, a minimum jerk is to be
set (see chapter 2.8.2 Diagram for determining the minimum jerkpage 2-8), as otherwise there
is no range of constant acceleration.

Important here is that the floor-to-floor distance is greater than the total of the acceleration and
deceleration distance from rated speed (see chapter 2.8.3 Diagram for determining the
minimum permitted floor-to-floor distances, page 2-9).
In the case of floor-to-floor runs, this achieves the rated speed.
C) Short run
A short run is when the floor-to-floor distance is less than the total of the acceleration and
deceleration distance from rated speed, but greater than the deceleration distance from rated
speed.
In the case of floor-to-floor runs, this does not achieve the rated speed.
Procedure for activation of the short run (see chapter 3 Short run device, page 3-1).

D) Load specification
If the elevator car moves away after opening the brake, this can be reduced by specifying an
initial torque, see chapter 1.1 General, Changeable parameters, page 1-1, P 50 to P 54.
If the load measurement device LMS 1 is used, the optimal initial torque can be specified.
If there is no load measurement, the start can also be optimised for a certain load state.
E) Acceleration pre-control
If the drive tends to overshoot, this can be optimised by activating the acceleration pre-control,
see chapter 1.1 General, Changeable parameters, page 1-1, P 21 and P 22.

Short run device

Short run device

3.1

General
A short run is when the floor-to-floor distance is shorter than the total of the acceleration and
deceleration distance for rated speed. In the case of these runs, this does not achieve the rated
speed. To reach the stop, the elevator would have to move at levelling speed for a longer period
of time.
The built-in short run device detects this state and automatically extends the acceleration phase
of the run. This means that no creepage or only very short creepage occurs (switching delay or
rope slip).
Note
For the short run device to function properly, the elevator specifications must be correctly set.
These are:

P 13

gear ratio

P 14

diameter of traction sheave

P 15

suspension

P 19

jerk

P 20

acceleration

P 23

speed v0

P 25

speed vN

These parameters are used to calculate the deceleration distance from vN and display it in
parameter P 111. For each normal run (vN is reached), the deceleration distance is measured
and displayed in P 112. This measured distance, however, is not taken into account in the short
run computing.
A special form of the short run is the short run with "sharper rounding" (see figure 3 3). This is
the case when the deceleration point is reached during the upper rounding of the acceleration
phase. If the deceleration takes place with the set jerk, the deceleration distance is too great.
The landing is overrun. To avoid this, the elevator is run with a "sharper rounding", i.e. with
greater jerk.

In the event of excessive switch delay times of the control system or rope slip, it can be
necessary to correct the levelling distance for a short run. If higher values are entered, the creep
distance to the landing gets longer; with lower values, the creep distance gets shorter. Values
from -40.0 cm to +40.0 cm are possible.

Modernisation

4.1

General
This frequency inverter (MFC 20 or MFC 30) can also be used in the case of modernisation of
elevator systems with non-ThyssenKrupp motors. These motors can be single-speed or pole
changing.
Vector regulation is also used here.
The maximum recommended speed is 1.6 m/s.
The rest of this description provides the necessary information for the modernisation.

4.2

Modernisation with encoder mounting on motor shaft


The regulation of "traditional" elevator motors with a frequency inverter provides the following
advantages:

Energy reduction by up to 50% (this is not a promised value, as the energy reduction
depends on many influences, e.g. the type of installation, amount of runs, etc.).

No 300-Hz ripple as in the case of operation with 3-phase AC controller

No modulation noise in the motor as in the case of frequency inverters with lower clock
frequency.

To ensure that configuration for the modernisation is as easy as possible, the following
specifications have been made:

Operation of single-speed or pole changing motors as well as frequency inverter motors or


standard motors is possible

Motors should have class of insulation F; a converter output choke is used to reduce the coil
stress

The flywheel mass should be reduced to a maximum of 1/3 of the original value or removed
completely.
If the flywheel mass cannot be reduced, for example in the case of external-rotor motors, the
acceleration value of the installation is to be selected in such a way that the maximum output
current of the converter is adequate.

If possible, the encoder must be torsion-proof and mounted on the centre of the motor shaft.
The encoder must deliver push-pull TTL signals with 5 V supply voltage. The assembly is to
be designed, e.g., in the same way as the Wachendorff pulse generators with part number
00 990 14 030.

The minimum landing-to-landing distance is control-dependent; with an "internal" converter


running characteristic curve, the minimum landing-to-landing distances apply, see chapter
2.8.3, Diagram for determining the minimum permitted floor-to-floor distances, page 2-9.

Settings for motor adaptation


To set the frequency inverter for an unknown motor, a corresponding procedure is required;
under certain circumstances, an iterative process is necessary. The starting point for this is the
type plate data. Here, it should be borne in mind that this is no always complete or, in the case
of old elevator motors, it does not represent the rated operating point for the frequency inverter,
as the ratio of maximum current to rated current was limited to certain values. This normally
leads to excessively high no-load current for the frequency inverter. The table at the end of this
chapter provides an aid to orientation.
To enable the following parameters, "non-ThyssenKrupp motor" must be selected in P 40.
a) Run automatic current controller optimisation (auto tuning P 80).
b) The parameters P 60 (motor rated frequency), P 61 (motor rated voltage), P 62 (motor
rated speed), P 63 (rated motor current) and P 64 (motor cos (phi)) are used to calculate the
values for P 65 (rotor time constant TR) and P 66 (no-load current Id). Typically, the values
for P 65 are between 40 ms and 400 ms; the values for P 66 are typically between 6 Aeff and
30 Aeff (depending on the motor output).

d) These default settings provide a certain basic setting for the motor. The elevator is to be
balanced out, where possible, so that only the no-load current flows (load current < 5% of the
maximum current) at constant speed (e.g. electrical recall). If this is the case, a travel at rated
speed should be carried out. Here, a tolerance band fault can occur on acceleration; if
necessary, disable this monitoring or otherwise set a lower acceleration value.
The actual motor voltage value appears in the top right of parameter P 68 (and also P 67). This
value should be around 270 to 300 V at rated travel. If this is not the case, the motor voltage
can be reduced by lowering the value of P 68 (no-load current Id) (usually, the motor voltage
that sets in with the no-load current from the type data will be too high). The motor voltage
should be around 270 to 300 V in UP and DOWN direction.
If there is not sufficient torque for the acceleration phase, the rotor time constant TR in P 67
must be increased or reduced. Here, the value can be changed in steps of 25%.
e) The elevator is now to be operated with the elevator car empty, followed by a motor run
under load in the DOWN direction and a braking run in the UP direction. In the DOWN direction,
the motor voltage should rise by approximately the slip value of the motor, i.e. approx. 30 V to
50 V; in the UP direction, the motor voltage should fall by a lower value (approx. 10 V to 30 V). If
this is not the case, the value of the rotor time constant TR in P 67 must be changed in steps of
25%. This setting should be made with the motor warm (not with a very cold or very hot motor).
f) The setting of the speed controller is also to be checked:
The I proportion of the speed controller is to be set to 0 and the P proportion is to be increased
until rocking or humming of the motor occurs. The P proportion is then to be cut by half.
The I proportion is to be selected in the range from approx. 10 ms to 100 ms, depending on the
overshoot in the running characteristic curve.
The pre-control of the speed controller with the help of the acceleration pre-control (P 21 and
P 22) additionally improves the travel quality.
The running performance is to be tested with no load, half load and full load.

5.1

Preface
To activate the DCP interface, <DCP01>, < DCP03> or < DCP04> must be selected in P 8.
DCP03 and DCP04 are serial data bus protocols that connect the converter to the elevator
control system. The RS485 interface (connection X90) is used. The protocol was specified
by the company Kollmorgen. Detailed information on the protocol specification can be
obtained from Kollmorgen Steuerungstechnik GmbH, Cologne. Email: info@kollmorgen.de
From the converter side, DCP04 is currently configured for a maximum running speed of
6 m/s. If greater speeds are required, consult the manufacturer. If greater speeds are
required, consult the manufacturer.

5.1.1

Installation
The RS485 interface of the converter must be connected to the control system. Connector
X90 is to be used, with the assignment 1=signal B, 2=signal A, 3=reference earth RS485.
It is recommended to use a twisted, shielded line.
Where possible, the control cabinet of the control system should be plane-connected, e.g.
connected by a copper band with the housing of the converter. In this case, it is
recommended to apply the screening of the DCP connection to both sides of the housing.
On MFC 20 devices, the converter must be notified when the travel contactors have
energised. Unfortunately, the contactor acknowledgement is not integrated in the DCP
telegram traffic. For this reason, the signal must be wired in the same way as for
conventional activation (input QSP1, terminal X1-10b).
On MFC 30... devices, the travel contactors and contactor acknowledgements are already
integrated.
So that the elevator control system can perform its monitoring tasks in accordance with
EN81, the relay output ("contactor control" terminal X1-4a, 5a) is available.

Assignment of the speeds and designations


The converter supports 8 different speeds, see Table 5-1, page 5-2
DCP04 accesses 3 of the speeds, interprets them, but only al the upper limit. Selected via
bit G7, G6 or G1. The converter has the option of running more slowly under certain
conditions.

Note
Special runs according to the DCP03 specification are also possible in the DCP4 operation
mode, which is why values must also be entered for the other speeds (bit G5, G4, G0).

The nomenclature for the individual speeds has developed at the various manufacturers of
elevator components independently, which means there are differences.
This has resulted in a considerable risk of confusion.

DCP04 parameters

Limit values designated with "auto" are fixed automatically by the program depending on
other parameter entries.
P 72 enables a certain partial distance to be run at constant speed on each run.
Consequently, a lower speed is run on short runs. This slightly reduces the energy
consumption and wear. The downside is that the running time increases slightly. A maximum
of 1/3 of the run distance is run at constant speed, even if a longer distance is entered here.
On long run distances, this setting has no effect, as a partial distance at constant speed
occurs anyway.
P 73 enables forcing a defined distance at creeping speed on approaching a landing instead
of the direct approach. As long as the exact transformation ratios are unknown on
commissioning, it is recommended to enter a higher value here. This distance already
contains the deceleration distance from V0 creeping speed to zero. If zero mm is entered
here, the smallest possible is set automatically. If the elevator has a tendency to run too far
at the destination landing, a greater value must be entered here.

DCP interface - Preface

P 75 stop position controller gain


The running characteristic curve is calculated from the set parameters for speed,
acceleration and jerk during almost the entire run distance and passed onto the speed
controller. During the last millimetres before reaching the stop position, this strategy
changes. A position controller uses the distance to the exact stop position to determine the
reference values for the speed controller in such a way that the elevator comes to a standstill
at virtually exactly the position specified by the DCP control system.
The gain of this controller is set using P75.
If an unpleasant jerk is noticeable on stopping, first set the creep distance
(P 73) to a higher value, e.g. 50100mm. Then P75 can be set in such a way that stopping
is soft and pleasant.
Once a setting has been found that leads to both good stopping accuracy and soft stopping,
P 73 can be reset to a low value.
5.1.4

Safety function TIMEOUT control


If no valid DCP telegram arrives at the converter for longer than 150 ms, the converter executes
an emergency stop if the elevator is currently running. The event and fault stack of the
converter then contains the entry: "DCP fault" and the number of DCP telegrams with incorrect
checksum received since switching on. Furthermore, the corresponding status of the operating
hour meter appears for each stack entry.
Emergency stop means: block impulses, open travel contactors and close mechanical brake.

5.1.5

Stopping accuracy with DCP04 operation


With DCP04 operation, particular care is required when entering the gear ratio, suspension ratio
and diameter of traction sheave. Even minor inaccuracies in the diameter of traction sheave
lead to inadequate stopping accuracy.
The running speed on the display of the control system compared with the display of the
converter, parameter P 101 "actual speed" must match during the run. If the exact diameter of
traction sheave is unknown, the converter offers a mathematically determined diameter after
each run on P 74 "traction sheave calculated". This is calculated from the travel information
of the control system and the encoder information of the drive. However, the calculation result is
falsified by rope slip and rounding errors. In order to obtain a meaningful result, a number of
runs must be executed over a number of floors. The might be that P 74 shows zero mm if runs
from or to the lowest landing are executed. Then, simply execute runs between two other
landings and then read off P 74.
If the same or almost the same value has been read a number of times on P 74, this can then
be entered at P 14 "traction sheave".
As a general principle, the drive tends to run too fast and too far if the input value at P 14
"traction sheave" is too low. If the input value is too high, the drive tends towards a slow
approach path and slow running speed.
