Eurotherm 690 Drive Programming

Does anyone have experience programming a Eurotherm 690 drive? It uses a Block type programming. Any comments, etc.

I used some Eurotherm/SSD/Parker drives a decade ago.
I really enjoyed using the function block programming, it was basically an embedded PLC.

I've done some work with these on old systems. Can't say I enjoyed it; there were a number of idiosyncracies to contend with, but maybe it's just bias from being used to AB drives.

The customer is wanting to replace the Eurotherm with an AB750 drive. (Whenever they can get one). It appears the larger challenge will be learning how the Functions in the Eurotherm drive work, rather than generating a program in the AB drive.

What’s the 690 doing… the application?

I've just them before, they use software called DSE lite and are programmed through a serial to RJ11 cable.


I found the blocks quite intuitive to use and they can do all sorts of things with the internal logic.

We've got a fair few of them, easy enough to program.
