Added DSAPro - Drive Commissioning Software. DSAPro is primarily used to configure and commission the DSA series servo drives. DSAPro can be used to select the proper motor for the drives as well as set up limits, and tune the drive for the application. DSAPro is also a useful tool for troubleshooting problems which may arise on the machine. When used to interface with an indexing drive, up to 64 indexes can be selected via the user selectable inputs. The axis can be homed using various methods. Registered index moves can be accomplished by simple fill in the box setup.
Modified MMC Examples: Fixed a timing condition in the E-Stop logic. If E-Stop became active on all of the axis in the same scan, ESTOPACT would not be energized due to ANY_CLSD being OFF and TIMING being ON. The ANY_CLSD contact was removed from the ESTOPACT network and TIMING is now reset when ANY_CLSD goes on. The LOOPTIME logic was also removed for enabling the drives. This logic is now in the M_CLOSx ASFBs.
Modified SERCOS Examples: Removed all reference to drive based digital I/O.
Modified M_SCRVLC ASFB: Added MVZD- zero distance move, FRTST- axis number of lowest active axis and FQUE- que number of lowest active axis' move outputs. Eliminated problem where time axis was not ready if M_SCRVLC was called twice between servo interrupts.
Modified M_PRTREL ASFB: K3/STANGL was not being added to the ASCII file because it was not being converted to a string.
Modified S_CLOS1 ASFB: Fixed an incorrect array index for axis 3 drive reset. The drive will now reset consistently.
Modified S_ERRORC ASFB: Removed the limit on the number of possible drive errors reported. Any drive error can now be reported.
