PL Pilot

PL Pilot - Configuration And Diagnostic Software For Controlling DC Motors

Model PL Pilot        

Minimise your set-up and commissioning time. PL Pilot allows you to use a windows based software package to configure your block diagrams and parameters when using the PL/X range of drives.

It allows you to configure and monitor motor control applications without any prior knowledge of a programming language.

To monitor and adjust your parameters in real time, simply connect your PC, running PL Pilot to the PL/X DC drive through a standard serial port.

There are 3 levels of recipe creation and functionality available to you in PL Pilot.

Total recipe (top level) – Allows you to manipulate the entire range of parameters.

Bar sub-menus (2nd level) – Allows you to manipulate each main sub-set of parameters.

Block pages (lowest level) – Allows you to manipulate parameters of individual blocks within the drive.

The Bar sub-menus (2nd level) show the 4 main menu bars on the PL Pilot entry page. These are:-

The Block pages (lowest level) Each block has its own page which details its default values (shown in blue text) and any altered values (shown in black text) with its own block diagram - in most cases this alleviates the need for a hard copy of the technical manual – a real advantage when commissioning on site.

Diagnostic and monitoring in engineering units (volts, amps, Kilowatts, rpm, frequency) and percentages for all terminals and block diagram outputs can be shown in bar graph or panel meter format.

The PL Pilot is included free of charge on a CDROM with every digital drive. It makes interconnecting the drives application blocks a simple task and allows the user to tailor the drives control strategy to exactly meet the demands of the process or application.
