I have been trying to figure out how to reset the drive faults and clear the fault queue by either using an external button to the terminal strip or using the Ethernet connection. Would somebody be able to shed some light on this?
Which faults would you like to reset.
Im not sure you can clear the fault queue but you can clear any active fault other than a major fault using remote or automatic reset.
With out having a lot more detail on your set-up including how it is currently programmed, which program the plc is running, which inputs are in use its hard to tell you how to go about resetting the fault.
If you have a spare input then simply program that to reset the drive and add a button. You may have to do some additional programming to catch on the fly or restart with a active run signal but its not that complicated if you know how to program a drive.
If you have ethernet then you simply one shot the reset bit in the code. (again depends on which program you are using)
