Hello All! This is my first post so please give my descriptions some lee-way please:P I am having trouble finding a solid example of ladder logic which integrates a: PowerFlex (755 in this case) Rotary Incrematal Encode ( or any encoder for that matter) A Prox to reset the resolution at specific points along the axis Also, can I use the standard Motion Instructions (MAJ,MAS,MAM etc) to control the movement sequences of the PowerFlex or are they only meant for use with Servos? I am working on automating a Lumber Treatment Process. The movements will have to move tens of thousands of pounds.. Therefore I would like to use the PowerFlex as a Torque Limiter to control a 15HP squirrel cage motor on a massive gear reduction. I have the distances and pulses per distance traveled from the mechanical engineering guys.. I'm just having problems integrating! After using the Setup Wizard for PowerFlex how can I go about actually inserting movement instructions for the drive into my ladder logic? Some more info on different movement profiles.. I've also included my attempt at trying to piece this together thus far.. Any input would be welcome!
