PiC Application Note
Document Number: 000043
Topic: MMC/Cimrex Application Quick Start Guide
The purpose of this application note is to jump start your MMC/Cimrex application. This also applies to PiC900/PiC90/Cimrex applications.
There are several examples applications that you can use as the base for your application. The PiCPro for Windows Applications CD Version 11.0.1 and higher have several 2 and 4 axis examples using the Cimrex 30 and an MMC. The Cimrex Prog CD Version 4.01 has a folder called: D:\BIN\MMC1DEMO which has two 1 axis examples using the MMC and a Cimrex 20, 30, 69 or 91, using both the serial and Ethernet protocols.
At the end of this application note are two appendices which are the readme.txt files for the two CD’s. I know no one ever reads these, but there is a lot of good information on these examples in them. It will save you development time if you review them.
We are going to use the MMC1_OI example ladder and the MMC1_C30 Cimrex application as our application. The following is a step by step guide on opening up the application and downloading the examples to both the MMC and Cimrex. We will also include several user tips along the way.
The following software should be installed on your PC.
PiCPro for Windows 11.0 SP1 or higher. Note the Service Pack can be downloaded from our web site:
Cimrex Prog Version 2.21 or higher. Note: Current version is 4.10.
