* The '''Motor drive''' is an intelligent drive with, among other features, a current controller and a motor protection circuit. The settings for the drive can be made in the program ''EasySetUp'', which can be found under Applications->Wine->programs->EasySetUp

* The '''Motor power switch''' controls the power to the motor drive. The power is enabled when turned clockwise and disabled when turned counter clockwise. Turn the motor power ''off'' then ''on'' to reset the motor drive. This is necessary when the drive shuts off the PWM signal because of a preset motor protection value.
 +
* The '''PWM enable relais''' enables or disables the Pulse Width Modulation output of the motor drive. This relais is controlled from the software by an EL2008 block in Simulink. First output set to zero disables PWM, first output set to one enables PWM.
