March 8, 2016 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Mar. 8, 2016 – Advanced Motion Control has released DriveWare 7.3 (DW7.3) software for DigiFlex Performance servo drives, which it says enables new capabilities in DigiFlex Performance servo drives.
The DW7.3 user interface promises to streamline and simplify setup and configuration of DigiFlex Performance digital servo drives. The colour-coded organization of the Drive Status screen helps identify events and faults while the integrated help browser highlights appropriate help topics in the table of contents. The caption and status bars provide visibility of various settings such as mode, command source, bridge state, gain settings, feedback sources and more. Toolbars are organized into groups for common tasks such as standard navigation, drive configuration, command configuration and motion engine. According to the company, the motion engine turns DigiFlex Performance servo drives into stand-alone smart drives. Up to 16 unique Index Tasks can be created with defined position, velocity and acceleration/deceleration values. As well, the motion panel tool is used to execute Indexes and Sequences allowing machines to be controlled directly by the drive without an external controller, it notes.
