Online diagnostic and servicing of drives made easy

New at SPS/IPC/DRIVES: the EASY Starter from Lenze

(PresseBox) (Hameln/Nuremberg, ) Simplifying and speeding the parameterisation, on-site servicing and diagnosis of drives: these are the aims of the EASY Starter software from Lenze. The functionality and the displays of this new free software tool have therefore been specially tailored to the tasks and working methods of commissioning personnel and service technicians. Clear user guidance, operating elements and the ability to select the available functions to match different applications, help to speed up working processes and reduce operating errors to an absolute minimum. The EASY Starter will be presented to a broad public for the first time at the SPS/IPC/Drives exhibition in Nuremberg.

The user chooses between different operating modes for the software as soon as EASY Starter opens. It is possible, for instance, to configure the tool purely for online diagnosis. This is done by running in a read mode, in which the parameters currently stored in one or more networked drives can be determined. The application's critical data is maintained safely here, and can therefore not be overwritten accidentally.

A virtual assistant helps the user to connect the servicing PC and to establish the communication paths to one or more drives. Customised screen views are available for analysing the diagnostic and parameter data that has been read. These views are closely based on the look and feel of the corresponding window views in the Lenze L-force Engineer universal software tool.

In cases where it is necessary to change either individual parameters or whole sets of device parameters, the EASY Starter can also be run in write mode. If necessary, the parameter sets in a number of devices can be updated in parallel. This is particularly efficient and fast if a prepared configuration file from the L-force Engineer is used - time-consuming manual input and typing errors become things of the past.

Version 1.1 of the EASY Starter is also capable of loading complete applications onto the devices. The tool supports the full range of drives from Lenze, and can be downloaded free from
