The bandwidth parameter is used to set the analyzed frequency range. The
larger this value, the finer the frequency resolution and the longer the measure-
ment time. The maximum value is given by the position control cycle (T
[ Hz ] = 1 / (2 * T
Example: Position controller cycle: 2msec
= 1 / (2 * 2*10
The accuracy of the measurement, but the measurement duration, too, will in-
crease with this value. A value of 20 is normally suitable.
This value represents the delay between recording of the measured data and
injection of the test setpoint and offset. A value of between 0.2 and 1sec is rec-
ommended. Do not set too low a value for the settling times or the frequency
response and phase diagrams will be distorted.
The measurement requires a slight speed offset of a few motor revolutions per
minute. The offset must be set to a higher value than the amplitude.
The Offset is run up using an acceleration ramp.
The acceleration value is defined for one

The following applies:
The actual measuring function becomes active only when the offset value is
The transient response (command behavior or disturbance characteristic) of the
speed control in the time range can be assessed using the step excitation. The
test signal is connected to the speed controller output for recording of the re-
sponse to disturbances.
This parameter determines the height of the preset setpoint step change or dis-
