Technical Training Program for IMPULSE®•G+/VG+ Series 4 and IMPULSE®•G+ Mini
This comprehensive 3-day training program starts with a review of basic drive theory and the "how to's" of selecting and applying adjustable frequency crane controls for overhead material handling applications. Programming information for the IMPULSE•G+ Mini, and the IMPULSE®•G+ Series 4 Drives in both V/F and open loop vector mode is also covered. The second half of this session covers introduction, theory, and programming of our closed loop flux vector crane control, IMPULSE®•VG+ Series 4, and is ideal for anyone involved with the start-up and maintenance of flux vector motor controls. The training session concludes with a discussion of troubleshooting for all adjustable frequency crane controls.
Each day of training is a full day session that will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Lunch and beverages will be provided during all of the sessions.
