You’ve started the preparations in the office, gathering all the relevant information, documents, drawings, parameter files and created the FSC configuration.

This included I/O checking, commissioning the (safety) PLC, parameterizing and fine-tuning frequency drives, interfacing with other systems and optimizing the FSC.
