You don't know the players without a score card and you can't efficiently troubleshoot and or maintain an electrical system without proper documentation. We have several customized documentation options to choose from that not only help your personnel get a system back in operation quicker, but can also be used by Nidec-Avtron personnel if they are assisting you. In addition to providing better documentation for troubleshooting purposes the documentation can also be used to fine tune areas of your machine to be more productive. The bottom line is, better documentation saves money.

Semi-Custom AutoCAD Software Block Diagrams
These calibration/configuration block diagrams show the ADD32 drive calibration and configuration choices for each drive section printed out on individual software block diagrams. This greatly aids in troubleshooting and flow diagnosis.
Custom AutoCAD Software Block Diagrams
These calibration/configuration block diagrams show the ADD32 drive calibration and configuration choices for each drive section printed out on individual software block diagrams. This is just the same as above, however after engineering analysis of each sections cal/cfg, wiring diagrams, and/or PLC program the following additional modifications are added:
- Connected lines for signal flow between blocks were practical
- Hatched areas to depict blocks that are used but are at default
- Dashed blocks which are not used
- I/O usage table on sheet 1 (engineering analysis involved)
- Re-arrange spare blocks to "where used" if it eases understanding
- Reference for non standard signal/configuration
These modified drawings make it even easier and faster to troubleshooting drive and process data.
NOTE: These drawings take the semi custom ACAD files listed above and customize them by hand. It is only recommended for a machine that has a stable configuration.
Want to train your own technicians in troubleshooting, drive tuning, tension tuning, etc.? Nidec-Avtron will write up the procedures based on your exact machine and operating parameters. Such as:
Q. "How does that PLC program get downloaded again?"
A. "In the electrical foreman's office is a blue cable which..."
