PLCopen-compliant motion buffers (function blocks)
- All motion applications
- High-end motion applications requiring a precise parameter change at the end of a specific function block
When a motion function call is inserted, a function block (FB) representing the motion is created. FBs are used in both NC and Distributed operation modes. G-MAS supports a total queue of 1000 FBs.
At the end of a specified FB, using the administrative FB mechanism, a user can precisely change motion parameters (including parameters that are mapped to a communication), IOs and maximum torque.
The axis status and the FB queue status can be queried. This status represents the PLCopen status for the axis.
The FB may be:
Supported administrative FBs:
