high tech bedrijven lenze 180509

The Lenze i500 series of frequency inverters is now completely integrated into the EPLAN Data Portal. Before the data was included, Lenze and its customers discussed and agreed on the ideal way to present it in terms of quality, range and structure. Their work has paid off. Complete two-dimensional and three-dimensional datasets and detailed product master data help to design control cabinets more easily, more quickly and more precisely. This level of user-friendliness also extends to production, even with batch size 1. Thanks to the three-dimensional pictures of connections it is possible, for example, to customise complete cable harnesses with the correct lengths and connections fully automatically.

A new chapter in automation

oktober 13, 2017

high tech bedrijven lenze 171013

Lenze is opening a new chapter in automation for the coming SPS IPC Drives. With its new i950 Servo inverter, the automation specialist removes the boundaries between controller-based automation and drive-based automation. For the customer, whether he wants to have a central automation topology, a decentralised one or an intelligent mixture of the two will no longer play a role. From the viewpoint of software engineering, it will be irrelevant whether a servo inverter is integrated into the machine topology as a simple actuator, as a parameterisable axis or as a freely programmable axis when the new module of the automation platform is launched. Designed to meet the needs of the future, Lenze’s portfolio includes products for the control level, the field level and the electromechanics and ensures standardised data communication as well as data storage in the cloud.
