Your most crucial test – the machine startup

After you have done the work of mastering the machine design and assembly, you want a fast and easy startup. To simplify your start-up, commissioning and configuration, we have developed the Drive composer PC tool to support our entire all-compatible drives portfolio. Whether you use a control panel for basic start-up and configuration or a PC tool, the result should be the same.

Machine designers can use Drive composer for all their essential drive configuration needs. The tool supports users during start-up via an easy-to-use personal interface available in several languages. In addition, it manages adaptive programming, sequence programming, functional safety configuration and fine tuning of the drive.

Before you actually do the start-up, Drive composer can check that everything is working as it supposed to. This saves you both time and work since it makes sure that any possible errors are identified and corrected. The tool can also access drive service data, so information can be sent if you wish to our service team for analysis and suggestions regarding next steps to take. Once the drive configuration is done it can be stored as a template to be used later, speeding up your future design work.


Free start-up tool for basic start-up

Our aim with Drive composer is simply to allow you to get fast and harmonized setup, commissioning and monitoring across our whole drives portfolio. Our free version provides you with basic startup and maintenance capabilities. It connects to the drive using the USB on the assistant control panel. All drive information such as parameter logs, faults, backups and event lists can be gathered in a support diagnostics file with a single mouse click. This provides faster fault tracking, shorter downtime and minimized operational and maintenance costs.

Pro version for your more advanced needs

Drive composer pro provides the functionality of the free version, as well as additional power. This includes ability to do parameter settings, downloading and uploading files, searching parameters, safety configuration and adaptive programming. Advanced features such as graphical control diagrams and various displays are also available. The control diagrams save users the hassle of browsing long lists of parameters, thus helping them to set the drive’s logic quickly and easily. It connects to the drive using the Ethernet connection in the USB on the assistant control panel.
