The simple and intuitive text-based SCL command set includes motion related moves for absolute and relative position with velocity and acceleration as well as jog and homing routines. SCL also includes I/O control commands for sequencing other machine functions as well as drive status and alarm interrogation. Python programmers can simplify their automation and machine control projects by combining AMP’s SCL motion control command scripts to sequence one or more motor axes.
AMP’s diverse range of stepper and servomotor based intelligent drives include panel mount and motor-integrated alternatives which are characterised by ease-of-use, dynamic performance and a highly flexible functionality that is easily adapted to a wide variety of applications. AMP’s unique StepSERVO™ technology includes integrated one-component solutions that bring together a microstepping motor and drive with position feedback and a sophisticated controller in a single package for high-performance closed-loop control that offers exceptional throughput and precision for applications such as packaging and labelling, automated test, automated parts handling, life sciences, and linear/rotary positioning stages.
In addition to the SCL streaming mode and various configuration, set-up and tuning tools, AMP’s control options include stand-alone intelligent drive indexer programming with a point-and-click graphical user interface option. For maximum flexibility, the sophisticated ‚Q‘ programming language can be used to write complex sequences of multi-tasked motion, math functions and machine control code. Furthermore, industrial network interfacing is available across the range including EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, CANopen, Modbus RTU and TCP.
The Python software application note is part of an extensive library of resource information covering a diverse range of installation and use related subjects associated with AMP’s broad range of motion components. Ranging from setup with third-party manufacturers‘ motion controllers, fieldbus and HMI interfacing, drive configuration and general programming guides, the information is freely available along with comprehensive technical support from Mclennan at www.mclennan.co.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling +44 (0) 1252 531444.
Mclennan works closely with a small number of global motion control manufacturers and with its own inhouse design and manufacturing capability the Hampshire based motion specialist offers complete integrated mechatronics assemblies with customised mechanics, gearheads and other power train components. Motor technologies include brushed and brushless servo motors, stepper motors, small AC motors and complementary gear unit drive technologies together with motion controls for competitively priced multi-axis motion and machine control for use throughout industrial and OEM automated machine applications – contact Mclennnan at email@example.com or www.mclennan.co.uk.
