TM441 – Motion control: Electronic gears and cams

In addition to single-axis functions, the PLCopen standard also offers functions for the coordinated movement of multiple axes in an axis group. By implementing mapp technology, using them is made easier. Drive coupling can be carried out quickly with this.

Objectives and content

  • Properties of drive coupling
  • Linear coupling and dynamic phase shift
  • Creating and using electronic cam profiles
  • Parameterization and application of the MpAxisCoupling component
  • Structure and functionality of the Cam Profile Automat
  • Implementation of the Cam Profile Automat with MpAxisCamSequencer
  • Overview of the different types of compensation gearing
  • Exercises and examples

TM450 – ACOPOS: Control Concept and Configuration

The controllers integrated in an ACOPOS drive have a large number of configuration and optimization options. Maximum control quality can be achieved if ideal controller parameter values are configured. This training module provides an overview of how this is done.

Objectives and content

  • The basics of closed-loop control
  • Description of setpoint generator, position controller, speed controller and current controller
  • Calculating parameters for speed and position controllers
  • Procedure for setting parameters
  • Determining control parameters using autotuning
  • Saving the calculated controller parameters

TM460 – Initial Commissioning of Motors

Before a motor can be used, the respective power electronics must first be checked for compatibility. Only then can the data required to configure the drive system be entered and calculated. This process is then completed by commissioning the motor.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Selection criteria and compatibility of components
  • Preparation and information regarding installation
  • Parameter identification and configuration
  • Motors, encoders, temperature sensors and holding brake
  • Calculating the commutation offset - Phasing
  • Entering the temperature characteristic curve
  • Encoder configuration
  • Configuring the holding brake
  • Commissioning checklist for the individual components
  • Examples and exercises

SEM210.4A – Automation Studio Training: Accelerated Basics

Automation Studio is used to configure and program all B&R control components. Core issues include getting a clear overview of all product groups, initial commissioning of a controller, understanding the functions of the runtime environment and knowing the options for integrated configuration and diagnostics.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Use the programming tool Automation Studio and its help documentation.
  • Configure hardware functions and set up CPU simulation.
  • Configure the target's network options and use Target Browser to find the target.
  • Create, compile, and transfer project to target.
  • Ladder Diagram will be the language of choice for the basic courses, but the instructor can provide guidance for using Structured Text or ANSI C.
  • Manage variable declaration and data retention.
  • Use standard functions (e.g. compare and compute) and function blocks (e.g. timers and counters) in Ladder Diagram.
  • Store project source files on the target.
  • Utilize common Automation Runtime features, such as cycle time adjustment.
  • Use System Diagnostics Manager, Runtime Utility Center and Automation Studio to troubleshoot hardware issues and diagnostic software bugs.
  • Integrate mapp functionality into your application.
SEM250.3A – Automation Studio Training: Intermediate Control

This seminar introduces higher-level programming skills than those demonstrated in SEM210.4A so participants may gain experience working more complex programs. A solid understanding of Automation Studio is required to be able to maximize learning in this course. Structured Text is the programming language used, but no previous text-based programming experience is required.

Learning objectives and contents

  • Basic information about software development methods
  • Designing and programming state machines
  • Coding guidelines and software documentation
  • Variables, constants and character strings
  • Derived data types: Arrays, structures, subranges, enumeration
  • Initializing, copying and comparing memory
  • Creating user libraries
  • Calling and evaluating the status of function blocks
  • The basics of data processing
  • Storing and managing data
  • Advances cycle time optimization
  • Transferring data and managing communication
  • OPC UA server and the user role system
