Software optimizes sustainability in material handling

March 18, 2011
Lenze Americas Corp. announces the launch of a Drive Solution Designer (DSD) for the material handling industry.

Lenze Americas Corp. announces the launch of a Drive Solution Designer (DSD) for the material handling industry. A software tool for design engineers, the Lenze DSD analyzes the complete drive train of an application to ensure the correct design and dimensioning of a decentralized system.

At the core of the Lenze DSD software is a comprehensive examination aimed at:

  • Deriving real energy savings through the use of highly efficient motors and transmissions.
  • Achieving precisely matched speed control through the use of frequency inverters.
  • Enabling the use of regenerative energy produced during motor braking.
The energy requirements of a drive train and the individual components are calculated along with the amount of regenerative energy that can be exchanged via the dc bus or fed via a regenerative module to the supply system. Lenze DSD optimizes the energy use of each component by determining the loss/load ratio of the mechanical processes. Because drive train components work at low efficiency in partial load applications, contributing to high energy loss, the DSD works to accurately specify the precise load-dependent power requirements of the machine, in order to maximize energy savings. Backed by extensive application libraries and process-specific calculations, the DSD guides users step-by-step through product options and benefits, offering in-depth comparisons of multiple drive solutions. For more information, contact Lenze Americas Corp., 630 Douglas St., Uxbridge, MA 01569. Phone: (800) 217-9100.
