Standard operation is ensured via the control panel. The lower control cabinet is equipped with controls intended for starting as well as shutting down the system and for quick adjustments.

On the motor mast, in turn, there is the upper control cabinet with controls that are mainly required for the functions of maintenance and commissioning. The fourth interface is the user interface, which is accessed via the laptop. Here, individual presettings can be made, error messages displayed and operating states read off.
