Looking for support contact. AC500/ACSM1 EtherCAT
I have used AC500 /ACSM1 with Profibus and Modbus for 3-Axis. I had written my own interpolation logic, but i advise you to use PS552-MC-E motion control library. The package comes with samples that will get you going. You can find it on abb.com
Keep me updated.
Hello bbeal and Isherpal,
can you share a technical details of your applications? Modes of operation, synchronization of axes, performance you have reach etc. Any details are interesting. I will probably do similar application and would like to know your advising of what one should care about, are there shades and so on.
My system used 3 Axis (ACSM1-2.5A + Servo Motors) with profibus. CPU was PM572. The M1 Drives used Speed Mode for Axis Inching/Jog, Position mode for Program run and Homing for Hardware sync. The program came from HMI CP430 through modbus. The program had Position and feed rates for the axes. On power up homing was required. Start with single axis first rest can be added later. The M1 uses CW and SW 32bit PPO4, 1.5MBit, The interpolation of axis is done in the PLC Logic itself.
TIP: you can use addresses other than CW and SW, Also in M1 you can create new parameters/groups with Drive SPC software.
