Danfoss' Vacon 20 ac drive is designed for packaging machine applications and is ideal for cutting cycle times has a built-in RS-485 interface, which is designed to offer a serial control interface for the drive.
During the last decade, the use of industrial wireless sensor networks has been growing rapidly in the process industries. Variable frequency drive (VFD) software has also gone through a number of changes.
Although VFD manufacturers have made many advances in terms of ease of use, some users still find programming and monitoring with a 2-inch display tedious. This is where VFD programming and monitoring software comes into play.
