Automated Commissioning is a toolkit of automated scripts running on an external computer and communicating with the AMB controller via a standard Internet protocol. The process replicates the knowledge of a skilled commissioning engineer and speeds up commissioning with a consistent, repeatable process.
The software automatically checks the build of the machine, with sensors and amplifiers checked for the expected functionality when the rotor position is manipulated by applying power to the magnets.
The use of a machine-specific configuration file means the check is repeatable and customized, thereby ensuring correct settings and targets. The software setup can proceed with minimal supervision and offer the results in an automatically generated report.
The script also ensures that all relevant measurements are taken and archived. It sets up and collects results from the controller spectrum and transfer function facility without the user needing to save files through the browser interface. The combination of tuning script and controller capability removes the need for dynamic signal analysis equipment.
Training programs prepare customer commissioning engineers, and remote support from AMB specialists is available if needed.
