1. ## Don't want an "S" curve, need a half Cosine Curve RESOLVED

I see there are some nice math instructions in the NJ's menu.    I can't use a MC_MoveAbsolute.  It must be a Cosine position curve running from zero to a positive max end position. I imagine I can use an offset to start the curve at zero, as the COS instructions produce a wave from -1 to +1 and back again.   The trick is to start the curve at -1 and end it at +1 ... If you know an easy way to do that, please share..     Regards, Michael   PS:   This may seem silly .. but, after finding it so easy programming a Delta Motion RMC75E motion controller to due exactly what I'm asking above... I am surprised as to the degree of difficulty dealing with Sysmac & the NJ ...  The level of complication is excessive, if one tries to go beyond the available Function Blocks, Functions and packaged math expressions.    Sure it's easy to do a trapezoidal move from one position to another.  But, I want a cosine curve (or, if you like, a sine curve) .. they are somewhat the same ... but not exactly the same .. and they are certainly not a trapezoidal move component.       I know The NJ can do sine waves ...

Thanks much.
2. ## Omron Learning Curve - DATA TYPES

Hello Everyone, Recently getting into Omron and I am wishing to pursue this type of PLC and software for a staple in my career. I have recently just graduated from a program involving PLC mainly Allen Bradley and one thing I have to say is that while making the transition from AB to Omron, the main difficulty I have had was with data types, specifically BCD, UINT, and CHANNEL. I am currently using the CX Programmer software for a few PID loops and they are causing me some great difficulty because normally I would just simply enter in all my values into a huge PID block in AB but that is not the case when it comes to CX-Programmer. Can anyone point me in the right direction of some manuals or e-learning places so I can quickly get a grasp on this so I can move ahead with the code. It is frustrating when you know how to do something and you just can't figure out how to put it into a software you aren't familiar with. Thanks for your help
