    Is there an actual list of what parameters need to be set in VFD settings? I am using SMC3 with the speedy octocoupler for AC motors and simtools.

    Searching, I see bits and pieces of settings/parameters which may or may not need to be changed and I know all VFD are different - but they are still similar, as they seem to rip the design off each other.

    Just need a complete list of what parameters are applicable and the setting they require.

    I got it running (more or less) but when in SMCUtils the initial movement will be the fast and good range of movement I want...and then on the next movement it slows down to a crawl both ways, up and down and because its going so weak its not turning enough to get the range of motion it gets on its first move for some reason.

    I have start up freq 50Hz
    Source of runtime freq and command with range: External signal control and 0-10V signal (also tried 5v)
    Acceleration and deceleration time both: 0.1 second
    Max runtime freq with range: 70Hz
    Min runtime freq with range: 1.5Hz
    Motor rating freq: 50Hz
    Torque compensation range: 1 (0 to 4)
    Torque compensation freq: 80Hz
    Startup DC braking voltage: 60V
    Startup DC braking time 0.2 seconds
    Stop DC braking voltage: 50V
    Stop DC braking time: 0.2 seconds
