Basic Programs for IEC61131-3/PLCopen
Time Based Counter: Increment a global variable continuously with 1 second increments.
Basic Motion: Enable a motor and then continuously: extend, 3s time delay, retract, time delay (repeat).
Basic Motion: Enable a motor, home, extend (incremental move), retract to 0 (absolute move), reset from toggle switches.
Camming & Gearing: With push buttons in visualization, Enable two motors , home, Start master, Gear In & Out, Cam In & Cam Out. Also shows Trace.
The above are introductory examples of programming in Parker Automation Manager which is CoDeSys v3
Training is available through CoDeSys US CODESYS NORTH AMERICA (external site) or 3rd party PLC training companies.
Your local Parker Automation Technology Center (ATCs) that sell Parker Electromechanical products have automation engineers on staff to help you with your machine automation needs. They will also know local programmers and systems integrators if needing additional resources.
This includes a sample program files for the Parker Automation Controller using the Parker Automation Manager Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software and Compax3 servo drive configuration file. These can be modified for your particular motor, IO modules and mechanics to quickly get up and running. The Xpress project can be loaded through the PAC Config Tool but the project (.lrp) does not need to be connected or loaded to run. Monitor program and motion status online in the PAC software or through internet browser (after loading the Xpress .lrp).
