DW7.1 has a streamlined user interface simplifying setup and configuration of DigiFlex Performance digital servo drives.  Color coded organization of the Drive Status screen helps quickly identify events & faults while the integrated help browser automatically highlights appropriate help topics in the table of contents.  The caption and status bars provide immediate visibility of important settings such as mode, command source, bridge state, gain settings, feedback sources and more.   Toolbars are organized into groups for common tasks such as standard navigation, drive configuration, command configuration and Motion Engine.
New DW7.1 Features:

  • The capability to create up to 4 programmable jogs and 16 index tasks that can be initiated via digital inputs or network commands.
  • Support for AC induction motor configuration.
  • Support for BiSS feedback.
  • Improved user units configuration interface.
  • Custom (Biquad) filter parameter configuration.

Motion features include the ability to store two sets of Velocity and Position loop gains, the ability to store two configuration settings, on the fly mode switching, 4 programmable jogs and 16 programmable indexes.
Network settings can be configured for CANopen, RS-485/232 and EtherCAT including the configuration, editing, and mapping of RPDOs and TPDOs.  CANopen TPDOs can be assigned to specific drive events.
