The most important factor in setting up the Compax3 is knowing your load inertia. This is crucial to getting the proper performance from the drive. The majority of applications only require the correct interia value and no further tuning.
Parker has developed the C3 inertia calculator to help application setup. The software can calculate the majority of inertia's in customers' applications, however it cannot calculate all applications.
The Optimization.pdf demonstrates setup of the inertia calculator as well as advanced tuning.
The inertia calculator is available in version 126.96.36.199 of the C3 ServoManager software and firmware 2.07.17 or greater.
For additional information and tips, please see your Compax3 help file.
