|New free of charge drivers for TOSHIBA TOSVERT series frequency converters are added to the TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI software and published at the AdAstra Web site for download:
via RS485/RS232C interfaces.
A frequency converter (inverter) is an integral part of the frequency regulated electric driver and is used for electric motor control. Modern frequency converters allow to implement complicated control algorithms, perform motor protection, adjust the efficiency, optimize operating conditions depending upon load and perform other functions. Now these capabilities become accessible for TRACE MODE SCADA users.
TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI (unlike other HMI softwares) features a huge library of free controller drivers covering about 2589 devices . The use of commercial drivers or OPC-servers normally makes a SCADA project more expensive by $300-800 whereas the TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI drivers are provided to the user free of charge.
Actually TRACE MODE supports PLCs produced by best world manufactures: Siemens Simatic S5 and S7, Allen Bradley, Schneider Electric, GE Fanuc, Advantech ADAM, ICP/DAS i7000 and i8000, OMRON, Mitsubishi as well as PLCs made by leading Russian manufacturers: Techonic, Lomicont, Remicont, KR-300, Sh9327, etc.
TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI users can download the new drivers at the "Technical Support" section of the Web site www.tracemode.com.
