Part 3 - User Guidelines

Within Part 3 user examples are explained. These examples show how to create real application parts based on the function blocks as defined in the specifications. With this, a user can create an own set of Function Blocks, and so their own library, dedicated to their typical application areas.

To give an example: in Part 2 there is no registration function defined. For this the function block TouchProbe is intended. With an example it is shown how the user can create an own function block Registration, based on the function block TouchProbe, together with already defined function blocks. With this, an application specific function block is created that also can be used across platforms. In this way, different inputs from sensors can be used, where either the location is not known (directly or networked) and /or need to be compensated. This user derived function block can be added to the company own library. This registration function now can be used company wide, and the source is usable on different platforms. This saves time and money in the next machine.

Part 3 is an on going specification, which releases as new examples are added. Some application examples with PLCopen Motion Control.

Before you download the motion control library we would like you to fill out a little form with a few questions.
