Below is a video showing the steps to create a new PLCopen axis in the KAS IDE. First you will add an axis by right clicking the PLCopen section in the Project Explorer. After giving the new axis a name, you can open a pop-up window to modify the default axis settings. First, you can select if it is a servo axis that will be mapped to an AKD drive, a virtual axis, or a digitizing axis mapped to an external encoder. Then, you can setup the user units per rev for the axis with the ratio formed between the User Units and Drive Interface Unis parameters.
