Build Your First SERVOsoft Project


Build an axis step by step from scratch. Learn how to create a sequence, define a mechanism, select a gearbox, motor and drive. Learn how to use database filters in making your selection. Then examine the energy cost with a scenario analysis using a capacitor module.

Duration: 17 min

Ratio Analysis


Demonstrates SERVOsoft's Ratio Analysis Tool, where a system is optimized for inverter peak power by analyzing the effects of different gear ratios.

Duration: 6 min

Complex Dynamic Loads

Create complex sequences and dynamic loads by importing data from a spreadsheet or text file. Then elegantly model the same load using the Thrust Formula feature, where the thrust load is programmed as a function of velocity.
Note: Load Formula feature availabe in the PRO version only

Duration: 6 min

Import Trace


Import actual motor and current trace profiles directly into the sequence form, and overlay them on the calculated profiles. See why the Import Trace feature is the ultimate benchmarking and validation tool for sizing servo systems.

Duration: 10 min

Slider Crank


Creates a Slider Crank mechanism for a Punch Press application, and covers all the important features in implementing a Slider Crank mechanism.

Note: Slider Crank feature availabe in the PRO version only

Duration: 9 min

Servo Pump


Define a simple Pressure & Flow Sequence then size a Servo Pump, Motor & Drive. Then import a complex dynamic Pressure & Flow Sequence, size a Two Pump Configuration, then size a Variable Displacement Pump. See how the program models the detailed Pressure & Flow Sequence from the pump through the drive train to the power plug!

Servo Pump feature available in the PRO version.

Duration: 9 min

Curve Fitting


See how Curve Fitting finds the optimal ramp, no matter the load. No guessing. No more "it's good enough". Now, with a click and within seconds, you get the optimal profile!

Curve Fitting is part of the Optimizer PRO option that must be ordered separately.

Duration: 10 min

Optimizer Minimizes Motor Torque for Slider Crank


Starts with detailed explanation of the Optimizer fundamentals, and then uses the Optimizer to reduce the motor torque by 65% for a Slider Crank application.

Optimizer PRO is an option that must be ordered separately.
