Quick Tuner™ Configuration Software

Quick Tuner automates the commissioning process by providing a quick, easy method for configuring the drive, setting up the motor and tuning the system. The Timing Wizard makes setting up the motor a simple process with no need for the rewiring and troubleshooting often associated with configuring a drive to a motor. If you are using a brushless motor supplied by TOPS, configuration files are supplied with Quick Tuner.

Commissioning your system is done in 3 easy steps:

Drive Configuration Screen
1. Configure the drive

Select the Control Mode then enter values for:

  • Maximum Error
  • Positioning Error Fault
  • Electronic Gearing
  • Maximum Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Brake Delay

Motor Setup Screen
2. Setup the motor

If you are using one of TOPS motors, simply choose the configuration file and load it. And then enter your settings for Continuous and Peak Current.

If you are using another brand of motor, use the Timing Wizard to automatically determine the motor parameters.


System Tuning Screen
3. Tune the system
  • Enter a sample move
  • Select the variables you wish to plot
  • Start the test
  • View results on the Oscilloscope panel
  • Adjust system gains for optimum response
   You’re Done!
