Mastering machine usability, quickly and easily, from any location

You know as well as we do that ease of operation and quick access to critical information via the drive can be a key to making fast decisions. When we created the all-compatible machinery drives, usability and fast operation of the machine were the main features we wanted to improve. As a result, we can now offer several methods and tools to get your machine operating quickly, even if the drive is remote or difficult to physically access.

So now, no matter whether the user is standing next to the drive or it is far away in a remote location, we have solutions to support you. The control panels with mobile apps or remote monitoring tools allow you to access the drive anywhere, securely, even on the other side of the world.

Apps for accessing the drive

To improve drive usability we offer a range of free apps to download to the user’s mobile device. With these apps, the user can start-up and configure the drive, as well as registering to access fault logs and more, remotely.


Scalable offering of control panels supported by available apps

Accessing drive information in an understandable and to-the-point manner is important, no matter what language the machine is operated in. For this we offer different variants of control panels with our machinery drives. These include the easy-to-use basic panel with an icon-based user interface. With this control panel you don´t need to know any drive parameters; the control panel itself helps set up the essential settings to quickly get the drive into action.

Additional control panel variants include an intuitive one with Bluetooth connection. Using a mobile device (mobile phone or tablet) with our Drivetune app makes it possible to access the drive remotely using our Bluetooth control panel. An example benefit of this solution is the possibility to access the drive in a crane situated high above the user. Doing this saves time while also lowering the risk of personnel injuries. Another example is accessing the drive in a facility with high risk for arc flashes. With the Bluetooth panel and Drivetune app there is no need to suit up and enter a high risk facility, but instead you can operate the drive from a safe distance. Also, in the food, beverage or textile industries there can be dust and dirt in the air, which makes it difficult to cleanly hook up the drive’s control panel USB to the PC. Bluetooth remote access solves this.

Apps for accessing the drive

To improve drive usability we offer a range of free apps to download to the user’s mobile device. With these apps, the user can start-up and configure the drive, as well as registering to access fault logs and more, remotely.

Drivetune

With the Drivetune app you can set the drives primary settings and access key information including: motor speed, torque information, control sources, hardware configuration data, firmware and control panel version which are in use, extensions in use and fault logs, including historical data.

The free Drivetune app is available from the App store and Google play 

Drivebase

Our Drivebase app gives you access, anywhere, to the drive’s diagnostics data, push notifications for critical product and service updates, and product and service information. All you need to do is download the app and register your drive.

Aps that provides acccess and valuable data to the user of the drive.

Remote monitoring access worldwide

The remote monitoring tool, NETA-21, gives easy access to the drive via the Internet or local Ethernet network. NETA-21 comes with a built-in web server. Compatible with standard web browsers, it ensures easy access to a web-based user interface. Through the web interface, the user can configure drive parameters and monitor drive log data, load levels, run time, energy consumption, I/O data and bearing temperatures on the motor connected to the drive. 

To order the remote monitoring tool (NETA-21), please contact your local ABB representative and visit http://new.abb.com/drives/connectivity
