Drive Control

Valmet DNA Automation System

Valmet DNA Drive Controls combine control software, user interface and engineering configuration of electric drives into one comprehensive package based on Valmet DNA Automation System.

Drive controls are integrated into the same control system together with process controls, machine controls, and quality controls. DNA Drive controls can be used both with sectional drives and single drives.

With DNA Drive package, the control logic, interlocks, tension controls, diagnostics, alarms, user interfaces, and engineering functions are combined into one network – Valmet DNA. Different types of drives can be connected to Valmet DNA with PROFINET, PROFIBUS DP, or EtherNet/IP. In rebuild cases, a mixture of interfaces to various generations of drives can be easily accomplished. SIL2 level safety controls for drives can be done using Profisafe interface with Hima safety system. PROFINET and PROFIsafe use a common Ethernet network to drives. HIMA safety system is seamlessly integrated into Valmet DNA.



  • Easy to operate due to uniform and effective operator interface.
  • Engineering configuration is streamlined with a single, name-based configuration language and uniform documentation.
  • Hardware redundancy is eliminated and there is a single set of spare parts. These advantages, plus the engineering efficiencies, result in long-term maintenance savings.
  • There are no separate data links between separate systems.
  • Open diagnostics allow quick problem identification and solutions. There are no more black boxes.
