HJTrost Posted April 13 Share Posted April 13 I am trying to convert from a Turbo PMAC2 Clipper to a PowerPMAC 465 Clipper (as a current stand-in for a CK3C AX1100 Clipper, which is to replace the Turbo Clipper for us). I have cut the Turbo program down to 3 small PLCs, a macro definition file and a machine-specific paramweter definition file. My hardware downstream from the Clipper consists of 3 leadscrew stages with stepper motor (Schneider M-2218-3.0) and amplifier (IMS IM483H Plus), with rotary encoders on the motors (2000 lines/rev, quadrature). With no other custom additions to my PowerPMAC project, I can can build and download into my Power Clipper seemingly without errors. However, when I power up the amplifers and motors, they ignore what I have in my project and all three just creep slowly towards one end of their motion range. They even ignore the setting Motor[x].ServoCtrl=0 So I started to tell the IDE project about the hardware and defined the amplifer, motor and encoder with the corresponding part managers. The amplifier is accepted without complaint, but the IDE does not like to add my motor to the configuration, saying A stepper motor can only be configured as high pole-pair brushless using the BrickLV amplifier. I have attached the topology display with the error message and my amplifier and motor definitons in their parts manager displays, and also (substantially trimmed) the machine-specific parameter file. What am I missing or doing wrong? PTDEV.30.00_snipped.pmh Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
