If two or more PCMM networks have to follow the same position set point, it's possible to use the following strategy.

The image below shows a typical configuration where all the AKD drives must follow the same position set point:

Orange connection is a physical pin-to-pin cable between X9 ports (encoder like wiring).

The strategy consists to declare one MASTER within the PCMM 1 program and sent its output to X9 port of one AKD (like an encoder emulation), e.g. the AKD 1_3.

The KAS extended template shows the use of different basic functionality, when using the pipe network motion engine. It’s based on the standard two axis pipe network example and includes some of the most common use cases. It covers the following topics

  • PipeNetwork motion blocs (Master, Gear, Comparator, Cam, Phaser, Converter, Axis)
  • Programming languages (SFC, LD, ST)
  • Subprograms (Functions, UDFB)
  • Control Panel
  • Variable structures
  • Defines

In a system that uses the pipe network, I would like you to tell me the homing how to use the index pulse of incremental encoder.
