The DCS800 includes macros that cover the most frequent parameter settings. Macros are pre-programmed parameter sub-sets. During start-up, the drive can be configured easily without the need to change many individual parameters by using a macro. The functions of inputs, outputs, and many allocations in the control structure are set up with the selection of a macro.
Twelve (12) macros are available, plus the factory default macro. The program also allows you to switch between macros with ease. Except for a few special cases, motor and tuning parameters will be maintained when switching from one macro to another.
