John252058 Posted November 30, 2014 Report Share Posted November 30, 2014 I need help with picking the proper hardware and how to accomplish, I'm green but will learn. I have a milling machine that needs a new feed drive and motor. It drives the 3 axis through a common drive powered by 1 drive and motor. The drive uses clutches to direct the power to the appropriate axis. Which of the HMI/PLC combo units would be suitable to control the drive using 3 Hiedenhain LS803 linear encoder as feedback for positioning on each axis. I want to enter a target position on the HMI then move the appropriate axis at a specific feed rate, when approaching the target position the motor ramp down then stop at the target position accurately. I've choosen Copley Controls Stepnet Plus TEL-090-10 drive for Nanotec ST8918L6708-B stepper motor. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
