Drive User Programming

This tool provides an interface for creating, editing, compiling, downloading and debugging programs for the servo drives.

Elmo's vast experience has also enabled us to create and offer you a large library ready-to-use templates and code samples. These built-in capabilities dramatically reduce the development time required for programming applications.

For more information on Drive User Programming, access the EAS software manual via NetHelp.


GMAS Setup & Motion

Elmo's Gold Maestro (GMAS) is a state-of-the-art, multi-axis, distributed network motion controller. Its role is to supervise and synchronize the operation of the overall machine axes and I/Os. The GMAS is fast, precise, easy-to-use, and cost-effective, especially working in conjunction with Elmo's servo drives.

With EAS you can easily calibrate GMAS and its motion; coordinate servo calibration for multi-axis control; and control multiple targets in one window. Tuning tool features:

GMAS Programming and Testing Capabilities

The GMAS programming tool supports multiple programming languages for machine motion including FBD, IL, LD, ST and SFC. Users can create, edit, compile, download and debug IEC 61131 programs. The user programming environment provides at least 32K bytes of memory according to the version of the drive.

Testing Capabilities

Machine designers and manufacturers understand the value of testing before a system goes live. The costs of unforeseen failures are just one good reason why the EAS testing tools are essential.

Testing tools include:

  • Single point to access all the nodes in your network
  • Several activities and tools for testing your system in the drive level setup and motion and in the multi-axis level setup and motion
  • Single axis motion control testing tool including motion monitor, mode change and setup, single axis recorder, terminal and motion monitor
  • Multi-axis motion control testing that includes all the single-axis testing capabilities with additional UM (Unit Modes) dedicated profiler motion windows
  • System testing via GMAS by sending DS402 motion commands to the drives in your network
  • Multi-axis DS402 profiler, recorder, motion monitor, EOE Gateway terminal to axes and directly to the drive, etc.
  • GMAS Script Manager to test DS402 machine sequences
