DriveWare® 7 Overview
Intuitive User Interface
DriveWare® 7 features an improved user interface common to everyday applications. Panels, tabs, toolbars, and icons can all be scaled and customized to fit different monitors and resolutions.
Drive configuration and setup windows are categorized and accessed through the Setup Panel, a ‘tree-view’ interface layout that simplifies the drive commissioning process.
Fully Functional Digital Oscilloscope
The built-in oscilloscope and waveform generator make it easy to find the optimal tuning gains quickly and achieve the highest performance. The effect of gain changes can be observed in real-time and adjustments can be made while the system is in operation.
The Powerful New Motion Engine
Create up to 16 unique Index Tasks by defining position, velocity, and acceleration/deceleration values. Indexes can be either Relative or Absolute motion profiles. Once created, Indexes can be activated using the Motion Panel, digital inputs, or by using an external network command.
The Motion Panel tool is used to execute pre-defined Indexes, Dynamic Indexes, Jogs, and PVT motion profiles. The Motion Panel also displays current motion profile data and Motion Engine status.
Expanded Compatibility and Capability
DriveWare® 7 is compatible for use with ADVANCED Motion Controls®’ CANopen, EtherCAT®, RS485/232, and Ethernet TCP/IP network capable DigiFlex® Performance™ servo drives..
With universal feedback and motor support, DriveWare® 7 and DigiFlex® Performance™ servo drives present a complete motion control solution for any motion application.
