With Industry 4.0, Lenze intends to make life as easy as possible for design engineers, allowing very short commissioning times: three minutes for a conveyor belt with fixed speeds; five minutes for a more complex variable speed conveyor belt; and seven minutes for commissioning a pick and place robot. In material handling technology, the Mechatronic Drive Package, including Smart Motor and g500 gearboxes, is a reliable and energy-efficient solution. The motor speed can be easily adjusted via Smartphone with NFC technology. One of the most important targets for the development of i500 inverters was space-saving design and user-friendliness. The complete installation is so easy, that even unskilled operators can set it up easily. When motion control is required, as for packaging purposes, the FAST application software toolbox is useful. Thanks to the standardised modular software, ready-made motion functions can be easily integrated in the machine control, and re-used.
