To use the Clone module as a Cloning tool: To use this feature the drive firmware must be version 2.07 or greater, for a 22kw drive or smaller. Parameter F105 is the firmware version. Verify the firmware version of the drive.
If you would like to use the module as a serial converter to communicate with the DSELite software (to program or save/copy/load configurations) see the side bar's adjacent FAQ.
This FAQ assumes you have all of the small components that come with the 1002-00 part number for some potential reasons mentioned below.Parts that come with the 1002-00 part number:
If your AC10 has a green serial terminal you may connect the module directly into the drive. You can use the associated cable that comes with the module to extend it if space next to the drive is an issue.
Important note: The module requires +5V. If no AC mains is NOT present (to step down control voltage) you must supply an external +5V signal with the module extended with a converter. See below for a pictorial description. The guide that comes with the part number has a pin out description as well.
The module with the extension when extended looks like this:

Old models of the IP20 drives, that were less than 22Kw, may not have a green serial port. If this is the case, you must create a cable using the available ethernet cable port for RS485 into a converter.
To “COPY” the AC10 drive parameters into the Clone tool: . 1. Slide the toggle switch into the Padlock open position located on the side of the module. 2. Press & hold the COPY ▲button until the drive MMI display will show COPY. This may take 5 seconds 3. The C/U LED on the Clone tool will turn Red on then off. 4. When the parameters have been downloaded successfully, the S/F LED will be Green.
To “LOAD” parameters into an AC10 drive: 1. To copy Motor Parameters set F640 = 0. By default F640 = 1. Motor data is NOT copied. See Note 1 at the end of this document 2. Set the toggle switch to the Padlock closed position. 3. Press the LOAD ▼button. The drives display will show LOAD. This could take up to 10 seconds. 4. The C/U LED on the clone tool will turn Red on then go off. 5. When the parameters have been downloaded successfully, the S/F LED will be Green.
