Magnetek, Inc. Launches New IMPULSE® Drive Simulation Software
MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. - January 30, 2009 - Magnetek, Inc. today announced the launch of its new IMPULSE drive simulation software, a Windows-based PC program that allows the user to program the functions of a variable frequency drive. It demonstrates the features of both the IMPULSE®•G+/VG+ Series 3 Drives and the Company’s new IMPULSE®•G+ Mini Drive.
The IMPULSE drive simulation software allows the user to experience how a drive works on any computer. A variety of drive capabilities are simulated including running the drive using a pendant station, monitoring input/output status, motor loading, and alarms/faults. Simulated programming features include programming a drive using a keypad interface and programming/executing special functions within the drive such as auto-tuning. The software also allows users to chart/view performance characteristics and view/edit parameter settings.
Magnetek's complete line of IMPULSE drive support tools, including the new IMPULSE drive simulation software, help simplify the overall use and serviceability of IMPULSE variable frequency drives.
“Our new IMPULSE drive simulation software is a valuable training and troubleshooting tool that provides a true drive control experience in a very affordable software package.” said Aaron Kureck, Magnetek product manager of AC/DC Controls/Motors.
