Ready-made diagnostic applets can be easily integrated directly into applications.  Since all service functions necessary for a machine or systems are already integrated in the System Diagnostics Manager, it can be launched from any PC without any installation whatsoever. The only requirement is a conventional Web browser. The appearance of the System Diagnostics Manager can also be individually customized to match the look and feel of the machine or systems manufacturer who is using it.  Users can quickly access current drive values such as speed, position, enable status or the status of onboard inputs.  An axis error list also provides information in table form about errors that are still outstanding as well as those that have already been acknowledged. SDM can also be used to easily access and operate oscilloscopes that are integrated in drives.
