  1. Hi,
    I have an Ultra5000 Allen-Bradley Drive since 2007 for a control of PM motor.
    It was stoped about 2 years, and now I installed ultraware version 1.8.
    I’m using an USB-RS232 serial cable, to link de ultraware software to the Drive.
    I think that the definitions of serial port is ok (38400bits; 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, I also tried all flux control modes), but nothing…
    The ultraware doesn’t detect de Ultra5000 drive, and it’s status LED is OK.

    Do you know what it could be?

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers from Portugal,

  2. Good morning LF,

    I’ve personally not used the 5000, so I’m not sure why you can’t connect? It does appear the CN3A port defaults to 38,400K for use with Ultraware. I would check to be sure you’re using a null modem cable, and if you are then check out this public tech note:

    Hope this helps,

    Shawn Tierney
