TF5850 | XTS: Software and programming

The TC3 XTS Extension decouples servo algorithms from the hardware and calculates them centrally. TwinCAT maps each XTS mover as a normal servo axis, enabling simple movement handling. Each output stage/coil is supplied with a current setpoint via EtherCAT.

All Motion Control functions such as flying saw, electrical gears and cam plates are usable. Function extensions in TwinCAT take over typical XTS requirements:

 

The integration of the XTS system into a production plant is easily possible thanks to support of numerous fieldbuses. All TwinCAT interfaces and functions simplify development and maintenance:

 

Distance monitoring | TF5400 TC3 Advanced Motion Pack integrated

The TF5850 contains the TwinCAT 3 function TF5400 TC3 Advanced Motion Pack with integrated distance monitoring (CA Collision Avoidance). This function is used by the mover axes for automatic monitoring of a pre-set safety distance between each other. If necessary, the axes will automatically brake the movers, taking into account the current dynamic parameters and velocity. Application programming is optimised and simplified significantly.

 

Condition Monitoring | Detection of mechanical wear and defects

The condition monitoring function integrated in the TF5850 enables online monitoring of the movers during operation. Various quality indices enable the state of the movers to be monitored. In this way, maintenance work can be planned in advance, and machine downtime reduced to a minimum.

 

Motion Control | Ready-to-use kinematics

The XTS Motion Control toolbox offers ready-to-use integration of complex kinematics of two or more movers. The user can define a group of several movers as a 2-D axis (XY table) or 3-D axis in TwinCAT. The software controls the mover group based on the selected kinematics. In addition, an interface for controlling the kinematics directly via CNC commands (G-code) is available.
