UXBRIDGE, MA - DECEMBER 27, 2007 - Lenze-AC Tech announces the release of the MotionMatch sizing software for its servo drives and motors.
Company officials describe the combination of MotionMatch motor sizing software and MotionView drive configuration software as a powerful yet simple solution to motion control management.
According to Darrow Hanesian, Director of Product Management at Lenze-AC Tech, "Sizing a motor shouldn't be rocket science and neither should programming a servo drive." Hanesian states that Lenze - AC Tech's MotionMatch, used with the existing MotionView, takes all the guess work out of pairing a servo drive and a motor, plus the user can now configure the drive with infinite ease.
"Our application engineers often get asked about the right size motor for a customer's application; unfortunately, however, the question usually comes after some failure has occurred" says Hanesian. Deb Kling, Lenze-AC Tech Marketing Manager, agrees, "With thousands of drive and motor combinations to choose from, it is no wonder that customers get frustrated with the selection process; with MotionMatch, all you need to do is enter your application requirements and the program will return the compatible servo drive-motor combinations."
Hanesian and Kling say that Lenze-AC Tech customers have been using MotionView to configure the PositionServo drive since the software's introduction in 2001. "The success of MotionView lies in its intuitive WindowsTM-based menu and the ability to fully program the drive from a PC, "says Hanesian. Kling calls the pairing of MotionMatch and MotionView "a marriage made in machine heaven."
Lenze-AC Tech develops, manufactures, markets and supports a complete range of motion control solutions, including servo drives and motors, clutches and brakes, gears and gear motors and variable frequency AC motor drives. Lenze-AC Tech's portfolio of AC Drive products extends from some of the world's smallest sub-micro drives up through large, 500 HP. With North American headquarters in Uxbridge, Massachusetts and a global network of distributors and representatives, Lenze-AC Tech is perfectly positioned to meet the needs of customers throughout the world.
