Hello,

Some ELAU guys seem to have symmetry difficulty with pinouts...
Here is my cable pinout diagram.

Be careful: always shut down power before connecting or disconnecting cable on X7... or this port may definitely burn out !
It is much a better way to upgrade MC4 firmware through the controller with Ethernet connection when possible !

Hey.
apilife
Thank you very much for the description of the cable to the MC-4.

You can look for firmware on http://www.elau.com/downloads.html
First you have to register, then look in PacDrive M downloads.

After login, I see the firmware files (Downloads -> Download PacDrive M -> Software -> Firmware).
Here is the direct link : http://www.elau.com/fileadmin/user_uplo ... 05_MC4.zip

Hi there,
Have you solved your problem? Because I have the same communication problem. Tried the pinout mentionned. Also, I can't find the Pacdrive Sercos firmware assistant software anywhere on the Elau website. Does anyone have it?

Thanks

Thank you so much for all the listed information.
Successfully update firmware on the MC4.
For some reason, there was an error on the drive and is not reset. All elements are intact. Firmware was 22.05, I again flashed the same drive and earned.
All thanks again!

Hi and helloo.
First i've read all info from this post.
And i do have trouble with connection.

I've made cable as is shown (i have doubt that i do not make mistake) there is no ifo from where i see connector to MLAU.
But i have found GND

But still no connection
i see on scope that computer sending some transmit. But no receive at all.

i have two MC-4 and on both the same situation.

i have use a diagnostics v3 tool (from schneider)

What i do wrong ?

do i have to connect pin 6 or 5 ?
or maybe pin PRO_sel i have to disconnect or connect to +5V

Best regards
Mark

Updated it a week ago again. There was no connection either. I managed to connect under the following conditions:
1 program is open and waiting for connection.
2 rs232 cable is connected.
3 ONLY after that connect 24v power.
Connection Speed ​​115.

Try it. If it doesn’t work out - write to me
