Some important safety warnings
The purchaser, designer and/or installer of the MxP Automatic Actuators for Machine Doors is responsible for the correct and safe use of
the actuator. He must ensure that all state and/or local laws and regulations regarding the safety of power-operated doors and the relevant
governmental workplace safety regulations are complied with.
Landert-Motoren AG is not responsible for accidents and/or consequential damage that could arise from the application or use of the MxP
Automatic Actuators for Machine Doors. Our maximum liability and guarantee is limited to the replacement of the costs of the products
sold. Landert-Motoren AG makes no claims or recommendations of suitability for specific guard door concepts . The purchaser, designer,
and/or installer of the MxP Automatic Actuators for Machine Doors must decide for himself whether the drive is suitable for a given
application. In addition, Landert-Motoren AG specifically declines any responsibility for damage or injury arising from modification to the
drive, including changes of the software parameters. No employee of Landert-Motoren AG is authorised to modify these conditions without
the written authorisation and legal signature of the responsible bodies.
During the initial calibration sequence when starting up a new installation or when re-starting following an emergency stop, the drive carries
out a calibration sequence at full power. During this, the safety functions are switched out, and the electronic reversing feature (anticlamping protection) is not active. The machine designer and installer must notify all operating personnel that the anti-clamping protection
is not active during the first OPEN and CLOSE motion after a power-up or system reset following an emergency stop. The holding brake is
not active at the limit positions. The internal electromagnetic brake does not firmly lock the doors, and can be overcome by a sudden,
strong hand movement.

Summary
The guard door actuators of the MxP series are equipped with a micro-processor controller and its
accompanying database, by means of which the actuator can be adjusted to the respective operational
conditions.
The SERsoft program has been developed to make the programming of the actuator as simple and user-friendly
as possible. In order to carry this out, this program must be run on a PC that is linked to an actuator via a serial
port.
The SERsoft program contained within this version supports the following guard door actuators:
MxP 50
MxP 100
MxP 101
MxP 300

Direction of Rotation of the Motor
Depending on the installation of the actuator or the fixation of the door driver, the direction of rotation of the
motor may need to be changed.
The view of the drive pulley from the front is taken as the reference. The direction of rotation is relative to the
opening of the door.
Input Signals
The input signals "Open", "Close" and "Reduced opening" can be set to be momentary contacts or continuous
contacts.
Start of the Calibration Run
The calibration run can be chosen to be carried out by either switching on the actuator, or can be started with the
first opening command.
Software Version
The software version of the type of actuator will be displayed here. The pre-condition for this is that the program
is working in the On-line mode.

When opening, the set value for the start speed is 1/3 of
the normal speed.
The braking distance cannot be shortened at will. The
minimum value will be given by the system, or will be
calculated by the processor.
The speed in the homing-in distance before the end stop.
By increasing this speed, the closing force in this area
can be increased.
Travelling distance with minimum homing-in speed before
the end stop. The reversing function remains active.
The maximum torque can be limited with this setting.
Soft
Door moves slowly to the limit position
Hard
Door stops abruptly
Maximum distance tolerance for the closed end-stop.
Stopping point in front of the open end-stop
If the door comes into contact with the closed end stop,
this time begins to run. The starting point is when the
door stands still. The actuator motor switches off once
this time has expired, and the brake is applied (if
programmed)

Motion Option
While accelerating and during constant speed motion (Switching off of reversing before braking)
Switching on or off of the obstacle detection modes during the acceleration phase and the constant final speed.
During a deceleration motion (Switching off of reversing during and after the braking)
Switching on or off of the obstacle detection modes during the braking and homing in phases.
Standstill Reversing
If, while moving, the actuator is brought to a standstill by an obstacle at a position at which the speed
should not be zero, and then remains there, it will be necessary to reverse. As the door mass must first
be braked, this type of obstacle detection is correspondingly insensitive.
Speed Lagging Reversing
If the actual speed falls considerably below the set speed for several milliseconds, it will also be
assumed that an obstacle has caused the braking. This type of obstacle detection is more sensitive
than Standstill Reversing.
Force Reversing
This reversing principle requires a reference torque profile that is recorded during the second error-free
movement. During the movement, the actual torque is compared with the reference torque. If the
actual torque suddenly becomes much greater than the reference torque, i.e., the permitted bandwidth
has been exceeded, the excess amount will be integrated over the path. If the integral reaches the
preset threshold value (sensitivity), there is a justified suspicion of an external obstruction and the
actuator will reverse. This type of obstruction detection makes a sensitive detection of obstructions
possible.

Diagnostics
Diagnostics are only possible in On-line operation. For this reason, a connection to an actuator must always be
set up first, so that this selection will be possible.
Error
In the selection box, a current error (READ Current Error) or a report (History) of the last 31 faults can be
queried.
Query Status of Inputs
During the diagnosis, it can often be an advantage to be able to query the status of the inputs. With "READ
Current Status" all inputs can be queried once. "Continuous Feedback" produces a continuous querying of a
specific input, until cancelled with "End".

General Error 1/2
The selected error messages are allocated to the output functions General Error 1 and General Error 2. If one or
more of these errors occurs, this output function will become active.
Dircom
This function is, in effect, the "back-door" to the actuator controller. Here, it is possible to set parameters or
activate functions that are not known by the SERsoft program. For completeness, however, these unknown
parameters must also be displayed. This is done in a separate display list.

Working with files
5.1
Sending Parameter files to the actuator
The transmission of a Parameter file is only possible in the On-line mode.
• Click on "File" and select "Send to Actuator".
• Select a parameter file.
• Before the transmission begins, you can still save the current settings.
5.2
Saving the actuator parameters
During saving, all parameters will be read from the drive and be stored into the current or a new file. In the Offline mode, the parameters from the SERsoft database will be saved.
• Click on "File" and select "Save" or "Save As".
• For "Save As", you must enter a new file name.
5.3
Printing out the parameter file
Under "Print", the parameter file can be printed out, or, with "Print Preview", the print-out can be viewed before
printing. This print-out only contains codes as used by the actuator. Additional explanations are not given here.
