EDrive Offers Better ESD Drive Control

EDrive – part of our advanced Emerald Series of servo motors and drives – is an innovative software tool that allows users to set-up, tune, and monitor ESD drives. With the ability to simply connect to an ESD drive through a USB or serial cable, EDrive software offers customers the ability to observe and control a wide variety of drive parameters in real time, such as:

  • Velocity command and feedback
  • Position command and feedback
  • Current command and feedback
  • Following error
  • DC bus voltage
  • Faults
  • Alarms

Users can also plot these parameters on their scope using up to 4 waveforms that can be generated either in real time or through level triggering, depending on client need. These waveforms can be saved or printed for later use. Precise measurements can also be carried out based on these waveforms. In addition, one can use EDrive to troubleshoot common hardware issues and make certain all products are hooked up correctly, without the use of a multimeter.

The advantage of this tool is that users can tweak their tuning to perfect their motion profiles. And all of these functions can be performed on the fly, creating minimal disruption in the day-to-day operations of these drives.
