How can I add more axis when using the SKH app, for example for a rotary tool axis ?
Is this possible in the app or can I manualy add the extra axis in the motion app and afterwards program it in the IDE program ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried to do the same thing, but with a PLC programming.
I worked with global variables out of the PLC to control an extra Axis. Find the attached video.
it is possible and easy to integrate rotating axes into "Smart Function Kit for Handling" as long as they can be controlled by binary (true/false, or high/low) I/O signals. For example, after positioning to (X,Y,Z) you can set one or more output signals to high/low or send a train of signals that codes a signal for the rotating axis, which in turn acknowledges or answers in a similar way. However, integrating a rotating axis that works synchronously with the linear axes or needs numerical input (for example for positioning the rotating axis not only to a set of predefined angles or steps but to any possible angle) is much more complex and normally can't be done without software changes.
I hope this helps,
