Tony Posted August 9, 2015 Report Share Posted August 9, 2015 I plan on using a V130-33-TR20 to control position on a x-y table. My integrated drive/servomotor is a Clear Path by Tecknic and uses a mode called pulse burst position. In this mode the motor will move a given distance per-pulse. If the drive is set to move .001" per pulse, send it 1000 pulses and it will move 1". The pulse train needs to be a high speed out put to insure that the drive receives all the pulses sent before it completes it move. The drive counts all incoming pulses and sets a target distance for the move, when the distance is reached it closes a contact which the PLC can use to validate the move is complete. The issue I have is how do I tie the HS output to a counter that is controlled by a variable set by the operator. The x-y axis are independent and only require to go to a position, no interpolation (CNC), so path is not important. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
