Magnetek Drive Synchronization Software
Need to synchronize multiple drives? Our IMPULSE® Drive Synchronization software makes it easy
This custom software allows you to synchronize multiple IMPULSE•VG+ Series 4 Drives. Drive Synchronization software offers increased safety by precisely controlling motion, and prevents the operator from making an uneven lift. The “slave” drives utilize an encoder option board with two encoder inputs, and monitor both its own encoder feedback AND the “master’s” encoder feedback, while also sending timing status information back to the master. The slave compensates for any position errors by adjusting its motor speed, resulting in near-perfect alignment between the master and slave motor shafts. The slave drive also possesses the ability to automatically re-synchronize the motors, and has an electronic gearing feature. While both drives are running, there is no accumulation of position error, so alignment is always maintained.
