Electric actuator manufacturer AUMA has launched a new, entirely redesigned version of its proven AUMA Commissioning and Diagnostic Tool (CDT).
The new AUMA CDT version 2020 allows fast and easy setup, operation and diagnostics of AUMA actuators using a Windows laptop. AUMA actuators are frequently used in automation solutions for hydropower applications, including turbine control, trash rack cleaning systems, and water level control applications for fish ladders, sluice gates, weirs, dams and locks.
Thanks to its modern user interface and comprehensive functions, AUMA CDT helps to save time and cost during commissioning, maintenance and troubleshooting. Originally designed for AUMA’s own service experts, the high-performance software tool also offers most of its functions to registered users. These include setting of tripping torques and end positions, modification of actuator parameters and remote actuator control. The new version also allows users to create service requests and to upload snapshot files with actuator data to the AUMA Cloud for detailed analysis. Profibus and Modbus master functions are available for control system integration. Comprehensive diagnostic functions, such as a powerful process data monitor and an I/O interface simulator, reduce service times. The new version benefits from a fully optimised communication protocol for the Bluetooth connection to the actuator, resulting in considerably faster data transmission. A new centralised AUMA user management system improves protection against unauthorised access. AUMA CDT supports SA and SQ actuator series with AC 01.2 actuator controls as well as SGx and SVx actuator series. The new version also supports the new PROFOX actuators. The redesign of the AUMA CDT software underpins once again the company’s continuous commitment to provide users with the best support tools possible for operating AUMA actuators. A new version of the popular AUMA Assistant App for smartphones and tablets is also available. Version 4.0 also provides fast Bluetooth communication and supports AUMA PROFOX actuators. AUMA CDT is available free of charge from www.auma.com. AUMA Assistant App is available free of charge on Google Play and in the Apple App Store.
