Mark A Posted December 17, 2019 Report Share Posted December 17, 2019 I am using a V430-J-TR34 and an incremental encoder to measure, cut, and monitor continuous pipe coming from a pipe mill. The mill puts out a continuous length of pipe at about 100 feet per minute. I have a couple of problems or questions with it. 1 want a keypad entry on the display so I can enter the distance for the pipe to be cut, I have that setup okay but I am having trouble with the inches. I have an entry of feet and one for inches. With the feet I am linking it with a MI and multiplying it by 2000 which is the pulses per ft. With the inches the pulse is 166.66667 per inch but I can't enter a decimal in the multiplication function the closes I can get is 166 pulses. When I reset after the cut is made my encoder value goes to 0 which is good but I want to measure the total feet of pipe that is ran through this mill, to do this do I add a store and input the encoder value and then divide the stored value? I also want to measure Feet Per Minute. Is there an example out there that already has this done? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
