Magnetek Inc. has released its new Impulse drive simulation software, a Microsoft Windows-based software program that lets the user program the functions of a variable frequency drive. The Impulse drive simulation software lets the user experience how a drive works to help simplify the overall use and serviceability of Impulse variable frequency drives (VFDs).

A variety of drive capabilities are simulated by the software, including running the drive using a pendant station, monitoring input/output status, motor loading, and alarms/faults. Simulated programming features include programming a drive using a keypad interface and programming/executing special functions within the drive such as auto-tuning. The software also allows users to chart/view performance characteristics and view/edit parameter settings.
