Lenze Americas has released a packaged collection of formulas now available as a free app for smartphone, tablet and mobile PC users. An easy-to-use reference application for performing basic physical calculations, Lenze’s Formulas and Tables app provides engineers, drive manufacturers and trainers a mobile tool to design drive systems while on the go. The new application software is available for download and easy to install onto Android and iOS operating systems via Google Play or the Apple Store.
“The launch of the Formulas and Tables furthers our commitment to strengthen accessibility in the mobile marketplace for customers and other drive design professionals,” states Michael Bailey, manager, sales support, Lenze Americas. “This mobile offshoot of our printed formula collection is aimed at making it even easier to design drive solutions. As technologies evolve we will continually add formulas and enhanced design tools to the mobile app.”
Formula and Table users can perform different calculations, ranging from the description of straight-line and circular movements, to determining drive control characteristics.
The app also offers basic formulas from the fields of kinematics, dynamics, force and torque, in addition to work output, energy and control technology. Suitable for international use, the tool is available in German and English languages.
The app allows easy navigation of results so users can re-use calculations for further analyses and share data with others. An integrated note function provides an option to draft remarks and other information, and save these in tandem with calculation data. A built-in bookmark function makes it easier to store and retrieve important information for later use.
