Would this be to save energy? Not sure anything is saved if you have to expand the air to atmosphere and then return it to the compressor inlet.

Awesome to see the 1400 is still alive and well here. Our AB vendor always talks like we need to move to the Micro 800 series, but I'm in no hurry. Probably won't until they start raising the price...

I've never seen one on both ends either. I guess technically it protects the transmitter too instead of just the PLC, but doesn't really make sense to me.

Sounds like generic corporate specs...

Is the VFD putting out 60Hz or 62.3Hz? You're sort of saying it both ways. Also, how do you know the RPM, do you have a tach or encoder? If it's putting out 62.3Hz and you're commanding 60Hz,...

Really don't think insulated is what you want. Will help in the winter but hurt in the summer. Just get a normal 3R / NEMA 4 cabinet put in an AC unit. Some models can also heat. Otherwise just put...

Debouncing it with the timer technically works to prevent chatter, but the more typical way to do it would be to use a deadband controller. Basically you need two LES instructions and a seal in,...

I'm just tried the above on ME. How do you add a connection to the "Close Display" button to write to a tag?

I believe that any PanelView running ME v.10+ can automatically do audit logging and store to a .CSV file or whatnot. Looks easy to set up but I haven't tried it.

Which parameter are you trying to change? If you're just trying to change the speed of the drive, I can verify that it is indeed possible.

Just curious- does the connection status go zero if the producer is in program mode? How long does a connection have to go bad before it notices?

You need to monitor the connection status and clear the data manually if there is an issue. There are many ways to do this. I prefer to increment a number on the producer every scan and compare it to...

Never heard about the non-volatile failure thing. Kinda scary. I coded mine to write all values every 250ms via a message regardless of if they changed. I haven't gotten a call back yet :confused:

Nothing wrong with using the PLC's 24V instead of the drive's. Much easier to do multiple drives that way.

Depends on how complicated the project is. If it can be done in a day on a ML, it may be worth trying on the Micro800s. If it's something complex, I'm not really interested in redoing libraries of...
