igus has released a video in which Rene Erdmann, head of the drylin E electric drive technology business unit at igus, shows how easy it is to set up the dryve motor controller for the drylin E linear robot.
The web-based system can interface easily to a desktop PC, tablet or smartphone – simply type in the IP address and connect directly to the controller’s interface. Here, different parameters, such as the drive profile, can be set.
Erdmann says: “The beauty of dryve is simplicity in itself - no additional software or special app is required to enter the data.” Machine builders can achieve system start-up using the motor controller in less than a minute. Afterwards, the values can be changed or intermediate steps added via the web browser.
