AN-307 Move Embedded Parameters
Move Embedded Parameters are a new feature within the Trio MC4XX Motion Coordinator system software.
Each move can have up to 2 user parameters per axis pass through the motion buffers and become available during the motion for processing.
The first example of using Move Embedded Parameters is for switching outputs linked to moves.
MOVE and SEL functions in IEC
I could not find equivalent of Codesys MOVE or SEL functions in our IEC language. A programmer can easily recreate the MOVE by creating a user function block that on rising edge of the ENO input will pass the value of IN to OUT with the desired ...
What is the accuracy on the UNITS / REP_DIST?
Q: What is the accuracy on the UNITS / REP_DIST? UNITS = 2^23*3/360 ' Counts/deg REP_DIST = 180 ' deg REP_OPTION = 0 ' [-REP_DIST..REP_DIST] As UNITS is approx. 69905.0667 then what will happen when I have run the system for ...
MC_CONFIG vs Flash parameters
All Motion Coordinators store the IP_ADDRESS, IP_NETMASK and IP_GATEWAY in Flash memory. So there is usually no need to add them to the MC_CONFIG. There are some differences with other system parameters. MC4N-ECAT, MC4N-RTX, MC6N-ECAT, Flex-6 Nano ...
EtherCAT CoE 402 Mode of Operation
If an EtherCAT slave goes operational and enables OK but does not move when the axis has a move command then check that SERVO is set to 1 and also check the drive mode of operation. For CSP, if 0x6061 is not 8, then check that the requested mode ...
Moves not getting to position
We have an odd situation with an MC4N running EtherCAT drives. The issue is that axis 1 is not getting to the commanded position via MOVEABS. The command MOVEABS is where we are hanging because the move seems to cancel. We did a the test with all ...
