Introducing drive.web the online system builder for coordinated drives

drive.web is an Internet accessible distributed control technology from Bardac Corporation designed specifically for use in configuring high performance AC and DC drive systems. It uses TCP/IP over Ethernet to provide robust connectivity between drives, PLCs, operator stations, remote i/o and SCADA systems and it incorporates a powerful library of drive control function blocks for a wide range of applications such as PIDs, winder controls, position controls, drive synchronization, arithmetic, logic, etc.

A fully functional demo of the drive.web systems designer software can be downloaded from the support web site at www.driveweb.com. Select 'get the software' and follow the instructions to get both the software and the 'driveweb_getting_started.pdf' guide. You will quickly see how easy it is to build, document, operate and monitor systems of any complexity in the drive.web environment.

drive.web technology features:

  • Allows online or offline design of drive systems using intuitive software tools with pre-engineered function blocks for a wide range of applications.

  • Allows Internet access to drives and drive systems for remote configuration, monitoring, diagnostics and process training.

  • Provides low cost full featured Distributed Control capability for systems of any size or complexity.

  • Allows multiple users from any location, local or remote, to have concurrent real-time access to a drive, a complete drive system or multiple drive systems.

  • Allows users to build system functions of unlimited complexity from libraries of software blocks such as winder controls, PID controls, position controls, drive synchronization, arithmetic, logic, etc.

  • Allows users to network large numbers of drives and controls without bandwidth limitations.

  • Uses industry standard TCP/IP over Ethernet to provide local or wide area networking of drives and controls.

  • Configuration and Monitoring software runs on any computer platform that supports Java - Windows, Mac OSX, Unix, Linux, Solaris, etc.

  • Automated updates of software are provided via Java Web Start from our web site at www.driveweb.com.

  • Provides high performance, deterministic connections between drives, PLCs, Operator Stations, SCADA computers and other control products.

  • Connections between drives, control devices and software function block parameters are made by simple 'drag-and-drop' technique.

  • 'Dock' feature enables users to easily select key monitoring, control and connection points in a large system and 'dock' them in convenient windows. The 'Dock' concept aids the organization and documentation of complex systems.

  • Powerful Navigation capability enables users to drill down to detail layers in drives and system processors and to search, jump and browse anywhere in the system for easy visual system comprehension.

  • 'Trend' window enables parameter values to be tracked graphically over time.

  • Supports either direct Internet addressing or VPN (Virtual Private Networking) for secure Internet connectivity.

  • Drive or device access can be password protected.

  • ModbusTCP/IP direct interface over Ethernet.

  • Modbus RTU Slave on RS485 port for interface to low cost Operator Stations, PLCs, etc.
