UXBRIDGE, MA - AUGUST 19, 2008 - Lenze-AC Tech announces that the configuration and programming software MotionView OnBoard can now be launched from any Window's based web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. According to Lenze-AC Tech officials, platform independence results in freedom for the users. "The PositionServo drive with MotionView OnBoard can run without having specific servo drive software loaded onto your computer," states Darrow Hanesian, Director of Product Management at Lenze-AC Tech. Hanesian continues, "You no longer have to search for that compatible CD or download software for your servo drive," and he adds, "Simply plug in your drive to any Window's based browser and you immediately have everything you need to set up and program your drive." Lenze-AC Tech Marketing Manager, Deb Kling, comments, "From our point of view at Lenze-AC Tech, it's a beautiful thing when customers don't need to worry about software and firmware revisions -they can just connect and be on their way." Kling adds that drive intelligence and fluid programming make the PositionServo with MVOB the drive of choice for any application, from simple to very sophisticated ones.

Hanesian states that in addition to featuring MotionView OnBoard, the PositionServo drive has enhanced capabilities including Ethernet/IP, DeviceNet and PROFIBUS DP fieldbus protocols; multiple language support (English, German, French, Italian and Spanish) and expanded arrays. Advanced debugging tools allow the user to save variable watch configurations as project files for later recall.
