Easy replication of programming with flash tool

The FlashDrop from ABB is a palm-sized tool for parameter selection and setting which can copy parameters between two identical drives or between a PC and a drive. Users can open the top of the box and place the FlashDrop wand into the access point built into ABB low voltage drives and they are programmed in as little as three seconds.

The FlashDrop from ABB is a palm-sized tool for parameter selection and setting which can copy parameters between two identical drives or between a PC and a drive. Users can open the top of the box and place the FlashDrop wand into the access point built into ABB low voltage drives and they are programmed in as little as three seconds. Ideal for distributors, machine builders, and system integrators, the tool ensures exact replication of programming across a host of drives for machine production or repeatable processes. FlashDrop stores a maximum of 20 unique parameter sets and, if needed, the parameters can be adjusted within the battery-operated tool. Packaged with DrivePM (Drive Parameter Manager), a software tool, to create, edit, and copy parameter sets. www.abb.com ABB
