Drive Simulation in the Design & Engineering Phases

Today’s machine builders are looking to speed up the time to market and reduce cost all while needing flexibility to make quick changes as unforeseen redesign and procurement issues come up. As we move forward to a digital world with advanced simulation tools at our ready having drive system simulation models that can help overcome this challenge and identify issues at early stages is now emerging as a game changer. Drive simulation capabilities not only help optimize the selection of the right motor and drive for the application but validate the interaction between the PLC and drive before hardware is available for testing. The digital twin of the drive system can be easily added to the machine simulation allowing virtual commissioning and optimization all while being able to quickly adapt and verify changes as they become apparent.

This session will dive into capabilities and sample scenarios of being able to simulate your drives behavior.
