Using a variable frequency drive with an Arduino based PLC

Introduction

In this case we are using a VFD (variable frequency drive or adjustable frequency drive, AFD). The program on our M-Duino 21+ is in charge to provide a simple user interface to the user and control the VFD. So, through our serial monitor in our Arduino IDE we will be able to control the three phase motor. 

Using a analog output 0-10 V we will be able to control the speed of a three phase motor. A part of that we also will be able to control the rotation direction using two digital pins. 

Requirements

VFD - Frno. 75e1s-7e 

M-Duino PLC

Three phase motor

Wiring

(*Remember to wire the VCom and Com (-) to provide power supply to the digital outputs)
