DC drive configuration made simple with Sprint Electric's PL PILOT

The PL Pilot is a PC based graphical configuration and diagnostic tool for use with the range of PL and PLX digital DC drives (also made by Sprint). This tool simplifies drive programming, installation and commissioning.

According to Sprint "This is a highly intuitive Windows-based software package which requires no previous knowledge of any programming language."

The package can be used in 2 operating modes.

Off-line - without a drive connected, the user can create recipes of drive parameters and block connections.

On-line - with a drive connected, the PL Pilot may also be used to monitor and adjust the drive parameters.

The PC running the PL Pilot software is connected to the drive via the PC's standard serial port. "The package is designed for ease of use and provides a clear, defined and understandable method for accessing all levels of the drives extensive built in functionality."

This makes complete system configurations very straightforward and quick.

In this PL Pilot, there are 3 levels of recipe creation and functionality available.

Total recipe
(top level)
- used to manipulate the entire range of parameters

Bar sub-menus
(2nd level)
- used to manipulate each main sub-set of parameters

Block pages
(lowest level)
- used to manipulate parameters of individual blocks within the drive
