Software for application engineers and users

The compact GreenTech EC drives from ebm-papst with integrated K4 control electronics have already proven their flexibility in a range of applications. With driveSTUDIO software, adjusting them to meet individual requirements from the applications is now easier – and intuitive.

The drives are used in medical and textile technology, logistics and packaging technology, and other fields within industrial automation. The new parameterizing software, driveSTUDIO, enables both experienced application engineers and users with little knowledge of programming to use them quickly. Three different levels for parameterization are provided.

Different user levels

On the simplest level, Demo, only a few clicks on the clearly arranged user interface are required to start the drive in either speed, torque or positioning mode and see a display of the current values. On the Parameterization level, users can change the drive’s default settings in a logical sequence by following the menu prompts. Function diagrams provide user support for all required input: control loops, reference drive or the setting for the acceleration and braking ramp, for example. And users with experience in the C programming language also benefit from the new software. On the Scripting level, for example, they can freely program test runs for all drive sequences they require.

Service area for firmware updates

The software also offers a service area for restoring factory settings, firmware updates, loading drive profiles, and reading out operating data and fault memories, for example. A standard USB adapter is used for the motor connection.

System requirements

The new commissioning and service tool runs on all Windows computers. It will be available to download for free in German and English starting at the end of November 2018 at www.ebmpapst.com/drivestudio.
