Magnetek Drive Synchronization Software

Contact us about this part!

You can:

  • Operate a multiple hoist application independently or synchronized
  • Synchronize a cable reel to a hoist
  • Synchronize multiple trolleys on a single bridge
  • Synchronize multiple motions between 2 or more cranes

This Drive Synchronization software:

  • Saves time and money by eliminating the need for a PLC
  • Increases productivity because the operator does not need to level the hoists manually

Drive synchronization software may be applied on:

  • Speed matching – two or more independent systems, such as independent hoists, bridges or trolleys that are not mechanically linked or bound together
  • – System needs to be able to correct error without being mechanically bound (i.e. through the wheels of an end truck)
  • – Bridge applications where two synchronized motors are driving opposite end trucks (does not automatically compensate for skew)

Drive synchronization software should NOT be applied on:

  • Load sharing applications with two or more mechanically coupled systems. This includes directly coupled motor shafts, trolleys or bridges which are mechanically coupled together, or two or more motors which are indirectly tied together through a structure, such as a bridge or trolley
  • Driving two or more wheels on the same rail, such as the swing motion on a log handling crane, or a bridge motion on a polar crane

In these cases, the “Load Share” feature within Magnetek’s standard IMPULSE Crane & Hoist software is a better solution.

Note: Because customers may not be familiar with programming application specific software of this nature, Magnetek strongly recommends and may in some cases require that the purchaser use Magnetek’s Field Service Personnel for initial startup as part of the purchase. Please consult factory for additional information.
