The default folders when installing the Applications CD are: C:\Program Files\Giddings & Lewis\Applications V13.0.1\ASFB C:\Program Files\Giddings & Lewis\Applications V13.0.1\Examples C:\Program Files\Giddings & Lewis\Applications V13.0.1\Tools

Note: You should not put any other files or applications into these folders.

The ASFB folder contains the Motion, General and Ethernet ASFBs.

The Tools folder contains the ServoSetupAssistant spreadsheet.

The Examples folder contains 8 standalone MMC examples or starter ladders and several simple examples for the Motion, General and Ethernet ASFBs. There are also 3 MMC for PC examples or starter ladders included, although these cannot be downloaded using the Standalone MMC Edition.

The following is a description of how the examples are named.

<>The following is a brief description of each standalone MMC example (or starter ladder).

M_C2M_EX. The Cad2Motion ASFB, translates an M and G code format ASCII file into servo motion. Many applications require description of their motion path using CAD software. Third party pacakages (such as Gcode2000) will convert the CAD package DXF output to M and G code text files. M_C2M will translate the M and G code file to servo motion. Examples of applications include glue laying and textiles cutting. The Cad2Motion ASFB is not intended for application to metal cutting machine tools such as lathes and mills and therefore does not support features required by CNC applications such as cutter radius compensation, tool offsets and constant surface speed.

MMC4_EX. This example can be used as a starting point for a 4 axis application. It contains the logic required to initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. This example does not have any operator interface support. All of the machine functions are performed with discrete I/O.

MMC2_EX. This example can be used as a starting point for a 2 axis application. It contains the logic required to initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. This example does not have any operator interface support. All of the machine functions are performed with discrete I/O.

MMC4_OI. This example can be used as a starting point for a 4 axis application. It contains the logic required to initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. This example uses a Cimrex 30 as an operator interface. The Cimrex application is called MMC4_C30.

MMC2_OI. This example can be used as a starting point for a 2 axis application. It contains the logic required to initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. This example uses a Cimrex 30 or Cimrex 20 as an operator interface. The Cimrex applications are called MMC2_C30 and MMC2_C20 (for the Cimrex 30 or Cimrex 20 units respectively).

MMC4_SOI. This example can be used as a starting point for a SERCOS application having an operator interface device. It contains the logic required to initialize the SERCOS configuration, initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. This example uses a Cimrex 30 as an operator interface. The Cimrex application is called MMC4_SC30.

MMC4_PT. This example shows how to apply the press transfer application specific function blocks. It contains the logic required to initialize the servo axes, close the servo loops, jog an axis, and home an axis. It also contains basic E-Stop and C-Stop logic. It also contains logic to configure and run the specified slave profile(s). This example uses
