The comprehensive Motion Control functions provide open, highly flexible possibilities to influence the application programming and assure the operator that he will be able to implement future Motion Control applications placing superior requirements on the process. The SIMOTION Motion Control technology package comprises the following technological functions:
Motion Control Basic
Control of speed axes and functions including cam controller, actual value acquisition with external encoders, ...
Positioning – POS
Control of positioning axes with position-controlled positioning, motion profiles as well as force/pressure control
Synchronism/electronic gear – GEAR
Control of synchronous axes following a master value, which can be synchronized in various ways.
Cam disk – CAM
Processing of cam disks that can be conveniently created graphically in the engineering system or calculated in the controller during processing
Path interpolation – PATH
2D and 3D interpolation with various kinematics
Supplementary technological functions
Further technological functions, for example, controller object.
The functions of the technology package can be accessed via additional language commands and system variables. This allows to conveniently and consistently program motion sequences.
Further, the Motion Control technology package comprises additional language commands in form of certified single-axis and multi-axis blocks as well as extended functions acc. to PLCopen.
