This example uses most of the functions and features of the Cimrex. Take a few minutes and go through the demo to get a feel for the capabilities of the Cimrex OI.
Tip 5 - Don’t Re-Invent the Wheel. Frequently, we get calls from customers writing a PiC or MMC application from scratch. It’s not necessary to re-invent the wheel! There are a number of pre-written applications on the PiCPro for Windows Application Software CD that can give you a jump start and save you some time. And, if you use them, it saves us time too because we are intimately familiar with these programs and it will be easier for us to help you troubleshoot your application. The purpose of each example is to provide a foundation for your application. Each example provides all the basic features that most applications require:
Loading the servo configuration
Closing the servo position loops
Handling emergency stop and control stop conditions
Jogging the axes
Referencing (or homing) the axes
Typically, the ladder logic required for a specific application is added to the end of an example. Refer to Appendix A for a description of these applications.
