TM460 – Initial Commissioning of Motors

Before a motor can be used, the respective power electronics must first be checked for compatibility. Only then can the data required to configure the drive system be entered and calculated. This process is then completed by commissioning the motor.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Selection criteria and compatibility of components
  • Preparation and information regarding installation
  • Parameter identification and configuration
  • Motors, encoders, temperature sensors and holding brake
  • Calculating the commutation offset - Phasing
  • Entering the temperature characteristic curve
  • Encoder configuration
  • Configuring the holding brake
  • Commissioning checklist for the individual components
  • Examples and exercises

SEM210.4A – Automation Studio Training: Accelerated Basics

Automation Studio is used to configure and program all B&R control components. Core issues include getting a clear overview of all product groups, initial commissioning of a controller, understanding the functions of the runtime environment and knowing the options for integrated configuration and diagnostics.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Use the programming tool Automation Studio and its help documentation.
  • Configure hardware functions and set up CPU simulation.
  • Configure the target's network options and use Target Browser to find the target.
  • Create, compile, and transfer project to target.
  • Ladder Diagram will be the language of choice for the basic courses, but the instructor can provide guidance for using Structured Text or ANSI C.
  • Manage variable declaration and data retention.
  • Use standard functions (e.g. compare and compute) and function blocks (e.g. timers and counters) in Ladder Diagram.
  • Store project source files on the target.
  • Utilize common Automation Runtime features, such as cycle time adjustment.
  • Use System Diagnostics Manager, Runtime Utility Center and Automation Studio to troubleshoot hardware issues and diagnostic software bugs.
  • Integrate mapp functionality into your application.
