Better integration: Software pairs servo drives, motors

Uxbridge, MA – Lenze-AC Tech has introduced MotionMatch sizing software for its servo drives and motors. Company officials describe the combination of MotionMatch motor sizing software and MotionView drive configuration software as a powerful and simple way to manage motion control.


Uxbridge, MA – MotionMatch sizing software helps select appropriate servo drives and motors for specific industrial applications. Lenze-AC Tech officials describe the combination of MotionMatch motor sizing software and MotionView drive configuration software as a means to manage motion control.

According to Darrow Hanesian, director of product management, Lenze-AC Tech, “Sizing a motor shouldn’t be rocket science and neither should programming a servo drive. Our application engineers often get asked about the right size motor for a customer’s application. Unfortunately, however, the question usually comes after some failure has occurred.”

Deb Kling, Lenze-AC Tech marketing manager, adds, “With thousands of drive and motor combinations to choose from, it is no wonder that customers get frustrated with the selection process. With MotionMatch, all you need to do is enter your application requirements and the program will return the compatible servo drive-motor combinations.”

Lenze-AC Tech customers have been using MotionView to configure the PositionServo drive since the software’s introduction in 2001. “The success of MotionView lies in its intuitive Microsoft Windows-based menu and the ability to fully program the drive from a PC,” added Hanesian.
