The sqDriveConfig Utility is used to upload, change, and download a drive's parameters. Whereas the sqDriveParam utility is useful for changing one drive parameter at a time, the sqDriveConfig utility loads all of the drive's parameters.
For more information, see SynqNet Drive Parameters.
At the command line, type any of the following options:
-server 192.168.1.70 -get config.dc -map ..\Kollmorgen_S200.dm
In this example, we have an XMP-SynqNet Controller with one node, an S200 drive. You can use the sqDriveConfig utility to download the appropriate drive parameters onto the drive.
First, use the -get command to create/overwrite a specified file which lists the drive's parameters. The -get command retrieves the parameters from the drive and writes the values to the file using the Kollmorgen_S200.dm file as a template.
NOTE: Verify that the .dm file is up-to-date and matches the drive firmware version.
Here is the output for the created s200.cfg file.
You can also manually change the parameters in the output file.
Be sure to Save your changes.
NOTE: Saving the changes in the output file does NOT load the changed parameters onto the drive. It only saves the modified file on your system.
To load the changes onto the drive, you must use the -set command. See screenshot below. To verify that the changed parameters have been loaded, use the -get command to retrieve the drive's parameters.
