Unbeatable! Cost effective in systems of any size or complexity

drive.web connectivity

drive.web savvy drive system engineering tools are simple and intuitive

  • drive.web devices (speedys&smartys) connect peer to peer over Ethernet for a completely homogeneous control environment.
  • drive.web devices provide full featured programmable control functions.
  • There is no limit to system size or complexity.
  • ALL system configuration data and touch screen display information is stored in the drive.web devices - everything!
  • Every facet of your system is easily accessible from anywhere.

Key drive.web Facts and Features

  • Low cost, high performance systems integration.
  • Platform independent tools. (Windows, Mac, Linux, Sun, etc.)
  • drive.web Distributed Control does not have the bandwidth limitations of conventional PLC CPU architectures. The more nodes you have, the more processing capacity you have.
  • Standardized, pre-engineered proven system solutions
  • Easily interfaces with your favorite operator station, PLC, drive or SCADA system.
  • Easy remote access for configuration, diagnostics, monitoring or control across the internet (multi user) or via direct dial up (single user).
  • Automated technology updates across the Internet.
  • Supports Virtual Private Networking (VPN) across the Internet for secure connections.
  • Basic software packages - free of charge.
  • Great applications support.

Who Needs drive.web?

  • Integrators who want drive vendor independence
  • Anyone suffering from system bandwidth problems
  • Anyone looking for remote Internet access
  • Drive manufacturers who need to add high performance systems capability to their products

Advantages of drive.web

Anyone who is familiar with the great system integration advantages of the Eurotherm "Link" technology will immediately appreciate the DCS concept and understand the following advantages that drive.web offers:

  1. Lower system cost
  2. Better system bandwidth
  3. Easier interfaces to PLCs, operator stations, other drives, etc.
  4. Better applications support
  5. Easier connectivity, drive.web Ethernet vs. Link fiber optics
  6. Easier remote access
  7. Tools platform independence
  8. Configuration info stored in devices instead of an external file
  9. Easier tools connectivity
  10. Multi-user tools
  11. No tools software charges

Do the comparison!

Most systems integrators however are PLC orientated, which is fine with logic processing, but PLCs can be very tedious when building complex process variable systems. Also the CPU configuration of a typical drive/PLC system poses serious bandwidth limitations even with only a few drives in a system. As you add drives to the PLC configuration the system performance decreases.

The distributed control concept of drive.web ensures that both the communications bandwidth and processing bandwidth increase as you add nodes, so that you never run out of steam!
