The Positioning Drives software tool for all electrical drives from Festo enables fast, easy and reliable design and planning of motor and axis combinations in three simple steps.
The Windows-based software guides through every aspect of selection and can create a complete bill of materials. The software can be used offline or online and allows the physical and electrical characteristics of all drive related functions (including the controller, motor and positioning axis) to be correlated and checked for compatibility and performance.
The software also enables engineers to verify motion control programmes in advance of system commissioning and it automatically warns of any impermissible programmed values, without requiring the electronics or hardware to be connected. Users can enter the key data to find their ideal solution quickly and easily.
