UXBRIDGE, MA - August 10, 2016 - Lenze has launched an enhanced version of its i500 frequency inverter series, equipped with a WLAN diagnostic module for easy parameter setting when commissioning and diagnosing motor inverters for a range of machine applications, including pumps and fans, conveyors, formers, winders, traveling drives, tool and hoist drives. Lenze is a global leader and manufacturer of electrical and mechanical drives, motion control and automation technologies.


A keypad, USB interface, and the new WLAN module are now standard on the entire Lenze i500 frequency inverter i500 series. Featuring a Lenze Easy Starter PC tool and WLAN diagnostics over a smart keypad app, the i500 frequency inverter optimizes programming control. The WLAN module communicates wirelessly with a PC or Lenze smart keypad app. The Android smart keypad app is available for free download over Google Playstore. A fully-fledged alternative to the functions of a hardware keypad, the smart keypad app offers numerous benefits, including intuitive user operation and display, and wireless communications.

A parameterization solution, the easy-to-use Lenze smart keypad app allows for i500 frequency inverter parameter settings to be conveniently downloaded, stored, and emailed for analysis. Adjustments to the i500 frequency inverter can be performed from a safe distance during operation, even on a traveling drive or remote machine equipment. Parameter settings are able to be diagnosed remotely and returned electronically for easy upload to the i500 frequency inverter.

The Lenze space-saving i500 frequency inverter series enables communication over EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP and PROFINET, in addition to compatibility with standard field buses. The i500 frequency inverter modules are available in the 0.33 to 100 Hp (0.25 to 75 kW) power range for scalable functionality. The wide-ranging modular system allows for various product configurations depending on machine requirements.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
