When connect DriveWindow Light 2 to drive get error code 2
Error occured while identifying drive: Following communication error occured while indetifying drive: Modbus device returned an exception code 2 (ILLEGAL DATA ADDRESS: The data address received in the query is not an allowable address for the slave) Could not identify Drive. Check the connections and communication settings.
I see in contents and index(Communication Error Messages) :
Code 1 means that the drive doesn't support the used function.
Code 2 indicates that there is a parameter in the used parameter file which doesn't exist in the drive.
Code 3 means that the given value is out of the limits accepted by the drive.
Code 6 can occur if the drive is doing some action, which prevents parameter writes for some time.
What is problem and how to fix this?

could you describe your actual configuration to connect PC with drive?
We have already talked about it in a previous post ... have you REMOVED THE PROGRAMMING PANEL? Behind the panel you will find an RJ45 connector - female-, this is the RS232 port on drive, like the one you see in the image below.
You have to connect the cable I already told you about in the previous post, the cable is an RJ45 - male - serial on one side and a 9 pin tray on the other ... connect it to your PC where you need a serial RS232 port.
Instruction about communication speed in my previous post.
There are no other ways to connect with your ACS550 drive, with Drive Window Lite.
You CANNOT USE MODBUS RTU - EMBEDDED FIELDBUS - to connect with the drive via PC and Drive Window Lite
I hope I was clear.
