The PowerFlex 750 Series Profibus DPV1 module available from Rockwell Automation enables users to integrate the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex 750 Series AC drives with the Profibus network.  

Designed to mount inside the PowerFlex 753 and 755 AC drives to save panel space, the optional module offers V1 services beyond the standard V0 services. Various tools can be used to configure the module and connected drive(s) including the enhanced PowerFlex 7-Class HIM or drive configuration software such as DriveExplorer and DriveExecutive.  

I/O Messaging

This function is used to transfer time-critical information including data that controls the drive. The module can send and receive logic command/reference as well as logic status/feedback and datalinks, reading and writing up to 32 parameters simultaneously.  

Explicit Messaging

This feature involves non-time critical information that is typically triggered by the application. The module supports reading/writing of drive parameters, reading the drive fault queue, and reading/writing option or other peripheral parameters.  

Configuration Switches

The module has a binary-coded decimal switch for setting the node address (01-126). Alternatively, the switch can be disabled, allowing the node address to be set using a configuration parameter. A dedicated switch setting allows for byte swapping on the network depending on the controller selected to communicate with the module.  

Network Operating Mode Jumper

This function allows users to set the operating mode of the module to standard Profibus or ProfiDrive, providing network flexibility and convenience.  

Standard D89 Connector

This feature connects to a Profibus network, greatly simplifying the connection point and increasing longevity of the wiring system by providing strain relief.  

The module can be flash-updated in the field using Drive Explore, DriveExecutive and ControlFLASH.
