Ethernet connection to a specific drive in the network
I have several ACS880 drives connected to Ethernet network trough FENA21. To configure drives tool Drive Composer pro 2.3 is used.
The Drive composer always connects all the drives visible in network, which is quite inconvenient and time consuming.
Is it possible to choose IP and connect only a particular drive in network?
Yes it is possible to choose a particular IP or a set of IPs
Please check 'Ethernet enabled' option in Drive Composer -> Welcome window
Click 'Comm Settings' button in Drive Composer -> Welcome window
Then Go to 'scan' tab
Uncheck 'Auto Configuration mode'
At right bottom corner , check single ip
right below : type the single ip address
and press 'save fixed ips' button
your IP should appear on the list of 'Fixed IP addresses'
Close the window
and click 'Connect' button in Drive Composer -> Welcome window
if the above didn't work , please restart PC and/or Drive Composer
