Fit gain

This function automatically searches the best suitable stiffness setting and mode and adjusts the gain once the target in-position range and setting time are set.

Service Life Prediction

The service life prediction function considers the internal temperature for main components such as the fan and condenser. If the rated value is exceeded, an alarm is displayed. This approach prevents unexpected suspension of operation and allows for planning of systemized maintenance.
Note: The life span prediction value should be considered as a guide only.

Encoder temperature monitor

The Encoder Temperature Monitor is a new function capable of real-time measurement of the interior temperature of the encoder, something that has been difficult to achieve in the past. It is valuable for monitoring the motor and can be used as a diagnostic in the event of a malfunction .

Other New Function

The software offers a wide range of convenient features including motor and driver data such as load factor, voltage, and driver temperature. Moreover, the logging function records the interface history. As well, a non-rotating contributing factor display function.

Frequency characteristics measurement function

Can check frequency response characteristics of the mechanism and motor. Since resonance frequency of the mechanism is measurable, it is effective for start-up time reduction.
