Video embedded below will show how you can create and launch a Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) project from within the KAS IDE software. When this is done, all the variables/tags that have a check in the KVB column of the KAS IDE Dictionary will automatically be given a modbus address and imported into KVB along with the IP address of the PDMM/PCMM controller.

The boot time was measured from the point of applying 24V control power to the drives.  The time was measured to specific indicators and functions of the drives.

Note that AC power was already turned on prior to running these tests, so that the drives could automatically enable.  Normally, AC power would be applied after the drives are booted up, and the enable signal would be applied after the drives are “Ready to Operate.”  (See the timing diagrams in the installation manuals.)  But for the sake of taking time measurements without the use of a PLC or control relays, the drives needed to automatically enable after booting up.

Em aplicações rotativas com encoders absolutos multivoltas é possível que o controlador perca a contagem do número de voltas. Se a máquina usa um redutor com redução de acoplamento não binária (Ex. 3:1), o periodo da máquina não é um divisor inteiro se comparado com o periodo do encoder, possibilitando que posição de feedback não seja a mesma após desligar e ligar a máquina.
