  1. Induction Motor with encoder

    Hello, I am not sure if this topic is too far from what the forum concerns, but any advice is greatly appreciated including reference to other reference. I want to know if any induction motor has internal encoder equipped. We are using servo motors, and additionally an encoder for position check. Because the position control resolution requirement is about 1 degree, I am thinking about abandoning servo motor, and to use induction instead. Servo motor has internal encoders for outputting pulse information. And I wonder, if there are induction motors with internal encoders. Thanks in advance. Ting
  2. Is it possible to read (and maybe write) the software limit values of a G5 servo from NJ code? It appears that PDO entry 607D would allow this, but how can I read/write to it? I don't seem able to map that entry to I/O. Thanks.
  3. Hi all, So this is more of a theory / how would you attack this problem, question: I'm creating my first HMI and while playing around in FactoryTalk View Studio I noticed I can add objects to a screen. I can add a browser and with some work I can get it to display an HMTL file directly in the screen. So the browser in this case is opening a file stored locally, not something served up from the internet. Which opens up the question, could I write most of my HMI in HTML and Javascript? As a previous developer having the ability to control more of the UI would be amazing and perhaps easier to use/maintain. The only pitfall that I haven't been able to figure out is how to get real time values from the PLC. I'd welcome anyone's input on the idea in general or if someone knows a good method for getting/setting values from the PLC. Thanks!
  4. Looking for a servo user manual.

    I'm looking for a user manual for the R88D-KN50F-ECT-L 5kW linear servo motor drive with EtherCAT. I have found Omron manual I577-E1-02, but this seems to only cover drives up to 3kW (R88D-KN30F-ECT_L.) It may be that there are no huge differences between a 3kW and a 5kW model, but I would like to have a manual that covers it if possible. Is there a more up to date version somewhere? Thanks.
  5. Hello all, I am experiencing an unusual (and what appears to be an unheard of) behavior in my CompactLogix L18ER controller. I am setting the date/time of the controller from my work station, however when I GSV WallClockTime, it is reporting 4 hours different. I have asked our local resources as well as done some forum and knowledgebase searching without result. Has anyone encountered this before? Attached is a screenshot of the controller time vs. the wall clock time. This isn't mission critical since it can be manually adjusted however I would like to understand what is taking place that would cause this behavior. Thanks!
  6. I have an application using Kinetix 6500 servos and Compactlogix PLC. The app requires a change to the MasterPositionFilterBandwidth(MPFB) at particular times during gearing motion depending on the circumstances. This value can be changed instantly using an SSV instruction but I have found the new MPFB value does not take effect until the Axis is stopped or turned off. Once either of these has occurred, the new MPFB value becomes active on the next gearing motion instruction. Can anyone help me with how I can make this MPFB value take effect immediately?
  7. I have a 2 axis control that runs a pair of identical servo drives. as of late I have been getting reports from the operators that the two motors, while jogging forward will suddenly run in the reverse direction at a high rate of speed. There is not a reversing function on these axes in an way. I am suspecting there may be a problem in the analog output of the module causing an inversion of the signal which in turn causes the motors to run in reverse. This setup has been in operation without any instance of this happening for around 5yrs before any issue with out of control runs. All cabling has been checked and is properly shielded and grounded.
  8. We are currently using a SureStep STP-DRV-4850 stepper drive from Automation Direct with their bipolar STPMTR23079D Stepper motor rated at 1.1 ohm, 2.8 amp per phase and 1.8 degree per step. The setup is a 24 volt rotary encoder 600 PPR AB quad that is turned 1 revolution per 6” of measured travel of the machine. We have a large “clock” dial that shows 24” of travel that the stepper motor directly turns. It has been programmed for 9600 pulse per revolution AB quadrature following and seems to follow the movement quite well. The issue that we having is several times a day the power is shut off to the machine and the stepper upon startup moves to the closest full step which looks to be about 3/8”. We need to save its location or at least keep the dial close to its current mircostep if possible. Do I have something set-up wrong? Should I be using a different drive? Thanks in advance!
  9. Small Wire Winder Project

    I have a project I am starting and I have to be able to wind a small diameter wire onto a 1/16" shaft, .5 to 1.5" wide and 13 layers at a max speed of 2,000 rpm. Is there anyone who has done something like this and have some sample code? I am gearing 2 Kinetix 350 drives with 2 AB servos.I have a separate tension unit that I have to communicate via RS485. Not to concerned about that. As the coil winds the traverse will move the wire back and forth.
  10. Dear experts, I have been trying to flash parameter to QD75MH1 module from PLC. Every time I monitor the servo via GX-configurator QP, I find 0 error, 0 warning but in the history tab it shows "start not possible(108)". But when I did it by flashing the parameter by GX-Configurator QP(Specially invalidating forced stop option" it works fine and servo motor jogs. can anyone help me to write the forced stop value from PLC program?
  11. Hi I have a customer who wants to communicate some setpoint information from their Siemens S7 PLC to a CompactLogix L32E PLC. I have installed a Prosoft PLX32-EIP-SIE for ethernet-to-Siemens Industrial Ethernet comms. On receiving a setpoint in from the S7 I then close a loop with some speed feedback in the L32E with a PID. I don't have any access to a Siemens S7 (or software) to test that the comms is working before the unit is shipped, all I have is the CompactLogix hardware. I do have a second CompactLogix PLC / PanelView HMI, but I dont think that this will give me the comms to talk to the SIE port in the Prosoft. I was hoping to have a simple slider on the PanelView to change an integer value to simulate the setpoints coming from the S7. Does anyone have any idea how I might implement this with AB hardware / RSLogix / FactoryTalk?
