Servo parameters are programmed values that control the behavior of servo drives. There is a number of different functions/parameters, which must be configured in order to ensure proper drive operation. This class reviews common drive hardware, wiring, parameter types, their effects and how to change, interpret fault and alarm messages, save and restore.
