with a system.
ProDrive is a modular, Digital Servo Control
System for integrated drive requirements with 3 resp. 4 servo axes
(Frame X, Frame Y, Maindrive and Borer). This product has been developed
for world wide application and meets the most important international
standards and regulations.
The main computer in the master module manages
the parameters for the complete system and communicates with the inverter
modules as well as with the SPS (stored program system), located within
the master module.
Each axis has allocated a inverter module with
the corresponding output. The inverter modules are protected against
overcurrent and are short circuit-proof. Data communication between
the master module and inverters are carried out via a internal bus
The powerful AC-servo motors are specially suited
for the requirement of embroidery machines and reknown for their reliability,
high dynamic ratio, high peak load allowance, small size and low moment
of inertia as well as very low maintenance. The integrated inverter
is well protected. Furthermore the permanent magneto spring activated
break guarantees for continuous positioning of the machine, even when
the machine is turned-off.
The operator uses a mobile ergonomic hand-held
control element to call-up embroidery orders, cancel orders, rolling,
X/Y-movement of the frame as well as rotation of the main shaft with
a defined speed.
Easy and simple parameter settings
The following machine parameters can be set
by the operator:
" Activation points of machine tools.(0°..359°)
" Zero point of the machine
" Start- and Endpoint of frame movement
" Max. and Min. speed
" Speed setting for low speed
" Normal speed (fast speed)
" Parameter for speed reduction with long stitches
The frame X/Y movement is monitored by 8 limit
The position of the servo motors is monitored by the inverter modules.
In case of malfunction, the last (actual) turn is immediately filed
(saved). The error message is displayed on the PC-terminal.
A standard PC is used. Communication via serial
interface (resp. RS485) with the master module. The ProDrive operator
software is based on SUSE Linux. The system software is an integrated
part of ProDrive.
|Control of tools
Manual control of tools is done on the terminal. Following tools can
Speed change, needle roll, blattstitch, tension, borer, borer depth,
Speed of the embroidery machine can be set on
the PC in steps of 5 turns.
A special software will reduce the speed automatically by a predetermined
value when long stitches are carried out. This feature results in
a very positive way for the quality of embroidery as well as for smooth
movement of the machine (frame).
