Control Techniques software suite makes it easy to access the complete feature set of our drives. These tools provide quick setup of the drive, optimize tuning, configuration back-up, programmable control and communications link set up.
MentorSoft is a complimentary Windows™-based drive configuration tool designed to simplify the process of drive system design, set up, and diagnostics. The software enables the complete control and display of all parameters within a drive. The software also provides valuable drive data storage, retrieval and programming functions. MentorSoft can be used offline, in the office, or online on the plant floor.
Parameter programming and monitoring may be done using the parameter tables or dynamic graphical flow diagrams. As on the drives parameters are grouped into logical menus of related parameters. Help menus and parameter descriptions are accessible by simply double clicking on the parameter of interest. It allows you to:
MentorSoft is free of charge and can be obtained by clicking the download tab on this page.
CTScope is a full featured software oscilloscope for viewing and analyzing changing values within the drive. The time base can be set to give high speed capture for tuning or intermittent capture for longer term trends. The interface is based on a traditional oscilloscope, making it familiar to engineers across the globe.
