First of all, I know that my question is very specific for those who have hands on experience with the ASDA-A2 Servo Drive from Delta-Electronics. But I hope that someone will guide me through the solution of my problem.

I have a Delta ASDA-A2 Servo Drive and I want to send control commands from my PC through the COM port, so I have used a USB-RS485 converter from the same manufacturer of my drive which is called (Converter) IFD6500. The problem is when connecting the Servo Drive through the converter to the configuration software (ASDA-SOFT) I find that it's not working except under the 9600 baud-rate, and it gives me a lot of timeout failures and wrong communication messages. When changing the communication speed from the parameter P3-01 to any other higher baud-rate it gives me an error of device not found. I though that may be the problem is from the wiring of RS-485+ and RS-485- signal pins so I have replaced their position and I got a total communication failure. I want to solve this problem and get a successful communication with different baud-rates between my Servo Drive and PC Here are the pin-out diagrams of my devices:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes I have set the baud rate to be 115200 between both, but no data have been transfered between each other. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 21 '17 at 23:52

    \$\begingroup\$ I know this is an old post but it may be found helpful for you and/or for others having similar problem. There is a Delta product forum in Turkish but I tried Google Chrome translate option and it seems the translation is quite well. The Turkish forum address is: http://www.deltaotomasyon.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=6664 You can easily right click and select translate to English. You can try the steps listed in the topic and I hope it will solve your problem. Regards, Yasin \$\endgroup\$

According to the manufacturer's datasheet, the default value of the communication timeout parameter [P3-04] is set to be 0. But the default value setting for the software I was using was 8 msec. So I was able to access that parameter through the manufacturer's free software "ASDA-Soft" using a regular USB B-type cable and changing that parameter value to the same value convenient with the one I was set in my software. Everything then after gone well and I was able to fully control the drive and the motor with all their functionalities.
