Trigger a drive’s digital output as a function of position
- Vision camera triggering
- Pick-and-Place machines
- Inspection machines
Output Compare (OC) is the ability to trigger digital output based on a given position in mid-operation, enabling more complex functionality that is based on feedback.
The output pulse width can be based either on time or position parameters:
Elmo’s OC function also supports table modes, where the compare position parameter can be configured in a table prior to mode activation. Optionally, the OC function can be programmed by the User on-the-fly –while a previous OC function is working – to prepare another logical position section for the compare.
Two sensors in the drive support output compare:
Both sensors can operate simultaneously with different outputs.
