ADVANCED Motion Controls Posted 09/12/2012
Available for immediate download DriveWare® 7 (DW7) enables new capabilities in DigiFlex® Performance™ servo drives from ADVANCED Motion Controls®. DW7 introduces the capability to create up to 16 unique index tasks by defining position, velocity, and acceleration/deceleration values where indexes can be either Relative or Absolute motion profiles.
With DW7, servo drives can now store two different configuration settings that include unique Loop Configuration, Gain Set, Command Source and Command Limiter settings simplifying machine design and maintenance for the engineer by allowing switching between each.
On-the-fly Mode Switching has been added allowing machine programmers for example to switch from velocity mode for a long constant speed move directly to position mode so the motor can be precisely positioned at the end of the move to a specific location.
Network communication settings have been made more configurable for CANopen, RS-485/232 and EtherCAT® allowing the network communication settings to be adjusted independently of the settings used to connect to DW7. Adding Mappable PDOs to configure, edit, and map RPDOs and TPDOs and the ability to assign CANopen TPDOs to specific drive events.
