PLCopen - Rotary Knife with Registration - Example Application
This document details a KAS 2 axis simulated rotary knife application with virtual master and registration operation.
The axes are as follows:
- Axis 1: Feed Conveyor
- Axis 2: Rotary Knife
- Axis 3: Virtual Master (Simulated)
The following mechanics was used to create the simulated rotary knife application:
The application demonstrates the KAS controller's ability to perform registration in a rotary knife type application.The application is run using the internal KAS IDE Control Panel screens:
The application code also contains:
- A state machine with 5 machine states: Standby, Manual, Automatic, Error Stop, and Error Fatal.
