Hey was just curious if anyone has come across the error message for Sysmac Studio posted. I have uploaded an image. Essentially what happened was I was using sysmac studio, went for lunch and it wouldn't open when I got back. I uninstalled v1.23, ran the remover (1901) and reinstalled it. Still could not open without the error. I uninstalled and tried installing V1.13 (oldest one I have) and again am getting the error. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, DJ
I've been building a contraption with linear rails and stepper motors. It has an X, Y, and Z axis. I'm using Velocio PLCs to control the motors which seems to be work well so far. I understand these are not very common and my question are related to general motion control, not Velocio programming specifically. Since I'm new to PLCs, programming, and stepper motion I thought I'd ask for some input instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. I'm to the point in the build where I'll be adding emergency stop/limit switches and am wondering how to go about writing the program; if there's an "industry standard" way to go about it. I figure the PLC will check to see if any switch is active. If one is, drive the motor away from it till it's inactive and store the location. If one is not, drive the motor until a switch activates then back off a until it's inactive and store the location. Drive the motor to the other limit of the axis (the number of steps should be known) to activate the switch, back off and store location. Rinse and repeat for the other axes. Is my approach about right?
