Lenze's updated version of drive dimensioning software boasts user enhancements and a specific motion designer for precision dimensioning and drive optimization in winding applications. Courtesy: Lenze AmericasLenze Americas' Version 4.0 of its Drive Solution Designer (DSD) drive dimensioning tool provides expanded application functionality and enhanced drive dimensioning for winding-unwinding motion control applications.

Lenze DSD 4.0 now comes standard with dimensioning tools for optimizing drives in typical center winding and unwinding machines. The winding-specific motion designer takes into account special features unique to the motion control of winders, with expert support in selecting winding technologies, a diameter-based representation of the load variables, and examination of the winding process in the torque-speed diagram of the motor-inverter combination. The field-tested energy performance certificate, available on earlier DSD versions, completes the winder solution for both single- and multi-axis systems.

Other new features of the Microsoft Windows-8-compatible DSD 4.0 release include a series of solutions designed for mains voltages in U.S. markets. A new application tuner provides DSD 4.0 users greater detail in precision drive dimensioning and enables varying types of process data to be leveraged in drive optimization. This extended functionality makes it possible to integrate more potential operating states and material recipes into the dimensioning process. Additionally, version 4.0 includes enhancements to usability and improved support for generating CAD data.
