Commissioning Tool DriveMonitor

The DriveMonitor is the comprehensive start-up tool for the drives of the device families SIMOVERT MASTERDRIVES, MICROMASTER, SIMOREG, and SIMADYN D.


Functions:

  • Start-up, parameterization, monitoring and diagnosis of SIEMENS drives in a standardized environment via the serial interface of the PG/PC, using the Siemens-specific protocol USS.

  • Executable on the MS Windows operating systems Win9x/ME/NT4.0 and Windows2000

  • Data transmission between PG/PC and the drives using RS232/RS485 physics via the serial COM interfaces of the PG/PCs.

  • Parameterizations can be created online ( connected to the drive ) and offline ( not connected to the drive, e.g., in the office ).

  • Managing sets of parameters ( upread, download, compare, print )

  • Interactive, graphical start-up for the controls MASTERDRIVES VC and MC, and SIMOREG DC Master

  • Convenient readout of internal status values ( recorded using the Trace function ) and presented as with a digital storage oscilloscope including evaluation help.

  • Firmware downloading for option cards from the MASTERDRIVES range, such as PROFIBUS board CBP2

  • Graphical online diagnostic screens for speed controller, position controller, simple positioner (EPOS) and synchronization in MASTERDRIVES MC

  • Tree view of the parameter menus for user-friendly navigating in DriveMon.

  • Device identification (DriveMon identifies the firmware levels of connected drives)

  • Import and export of freely defined parameter lists


Compatibility between DriveMonitor and SIMOVIS files:

All files ( filename extension .DNL ) created using SIMOVIS can also be edited using the DriveMonitor. When you open a SIMOVIS file using the DriveMonitor, just some additional information will be queried that you have to enter.
