Test the dryve motor controller

With the intuitive web-based application, you can quickly set the travel mode, positions, rates of acceleration, speed and pause times of your linear axis.
The simulation below allows you to test the motor controller accordingly. When using the actual web application and motor controller, your input is transmitted exactly as it is within this simulator. There is no separate transmission..

Under 'Travel profiles', you can configure up to eight lines and apply the control parameters to the linear axis. In the 'Mode' field, use HOM to set the zero point or use ABS to define the absolute position for movement on the linear axis.

Choose the destination by entering the position on the axis or by using the Teach function. Enter the values for acceleration, speed and deceleration and, if necessary, a pause time. Under 'Subsequent block', specify the number of the next travel profile.

The control system in detail

Ready to use immediately

The dryve motor controller can either be connected to your network or you can connect it directly to the control unit (PC or PLC) by means of a network cable. You can then start the control system directly in the browser without software installation. Settings can therefore be made in one minute.

For each linear axis you need one dryve motor control system.


Powerful drive technology

dryve supports DC, EC and stepper motors both in open loop and closed loop technology.
The supply voltage of up to 48 V ensures high motor speeds. The nominal current of 7 A and the peak current of 20 A results in powerful and dynamic movements.

Simple control with the dryve web application

You can use the simple, intuitive web application to parameterize travel distances, position, feed and operating time of your linear axis even as an amateur.

Movements that are continuously repeated known as "looping" can be set in just a few seconds. A teach function enables position settings to be made with just one click.


Industry standards

Standardized communication protocols such as CANopen or Modbus TCP make it very easy to connect to industrial control systems such as Siemens S7 or Beckhoff. 

The ten digital inputs and five outputs enable the simplest communication with industrial controllers, but also with inexpensive open source modules such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi.
