Controllers

Stored-Program Type Controllers

In addition to enhanced oscillation functions that only a motor manufacturer can provide, this series includes sequence functions that make programming sequential operations possible and I/O control functions.
 

Allowing the Input of 32 Sequence Programs

        With the EMP400 Series, 32 different operation programs can be input. These can be freely selected and executed using external input signals. In addition to the 32 programs, sequence programs that are automatically executed when the power is turned on can be input (1 program). The program capacity allows up to 1000 steps in total to be input for all sequence programs.

Various Operating Patterns Can be Achieved

  • Repetitive Positioning

             Simple operations such as repeating a positioning operation for a specified number of times and then performing a return-to-home operation can be immediately achieved.

  • Sensor Stopping

             Using general purpose input, operation can be started from an arbitrary position and then deceleration stop can be activated when a sensor signal is detected.

  • Dual Axis Linear Interpolation Operation

             Dual axis linear interpolation operation in which positioning of two axes is performed simultaneously is possible.

  • Multi-Speed Continuous Operation

             Changing to a desired speed is possible during continuous operation.

Teaching Function

         Using the accessory OP300 control module, adjustment of traveling amounts through teaching and monitoring of the current position is possible.

Dedicated Software is Unnecessary

         Input of sequence programs can be performed with HyperTerminal that comes standard with Windows (except for Windows Vista), so dedicated software is unnecessary.

Jerk Limiting Control Function for Suppressing Vibration of the Motor

        The “jerk limiting control function” lets you suppress vibration that otherwise occurs when the motor is being driven or stopped. For example, it is effective in situations such as when suppressing vibration from belt pulley driving.

Stored-Data Type Controllers

pg1200

The PG1200 is a controller that can simply set 4 positioning data with its front panel.
2 installation configurations are available: using DIN rails and flush installation. As input specifications, both sink logic and
source logic are available.
 

Roles of Controllers

  • Operation System
pg1200_01

             A device that outputs pulse signals required for stepping motor operation etc., is called a “controller.” A controller is equipped with various settings for controlling the motor and can also be connected with a higher-level programmable controller and sensors.

Easy Operation

  • Front Panel Interface Enables All Settings and Operation Checks

                All operations including setting of various data can be performed using the four touch keys on the front panel. You can also check the status of each operation simply by checking the display on the front panel.

pg1200_02

4 positioning data can be set.

  • Operation patterns such as the following can be set in 4 steps, No. 1 to No. 4.
pg1200_03

4 Control Modes

pg1200_04
  • Positioning Operation
pg1200_05
  • Continuous Operation (SCAN operation)

                In this operation, when the CW scan (or CCW scan) signal input is ON, operation starts. When the signal input is OFF, the operation performs deceleration stop. This is useful for moving the load manually to a desired position.

Other Features

  • Jerk Limiting Control Function for Suppressing Vibration of the Motor

               The “jerk limiting control function” lets you suppress vibration that otherwise occurs when the motor is being driven or stopped. For example, it is effective in situations such as when suppressing vibration from belt pulley driving.

pg1200_07
  • 2 types of input/output specifications are available.

             Either sink logic or source logic for the input/output specifications can be selected, whichever matches the equipment.
