Communicate with drive controllers via app
Drive controllers perform complex tasks in machines and systems. The range of functions is constantly growing and requires user-friendly interfaces to be able to manage them. In addition to the COMBIVIS 6 PC tool, KEB drive controllers can be easily and conveniently operated via the COMBIVIS mobile app. The app from KEB enables wireless communication via a smartphone or tablet. In addition to the connection via WLAN, networking via Bluetooth is also possible. A corresponding Bluetooth adapter from KEB is available.
Status information of the drive can be read out easily via a user-friendly interface in order to use it for process monitoring and fault diagnosis. Displaying and setting parameters as well as saving and restoring data is also done via app. For quick support from the worldwide KEB service, the contact details of the local contact person can be found via a menu item.
