Bus Positioning

  • Drive application: Bus positioning and extended bus positioning
  • The bus positioning module is suitable for positioning applications with a variable number of target positions.
  • "Bus Positioning" is available in two versions - complete or reduced function:
    • "Bus Positioning" with three (3) process data and variable preset of target position and speed.
    • "Extended Positioning via Bus" with six (6) process data and variable preset of target position, speed, and ramp.
  • Bus positioning applications can be found in the following sectors:
    • Materials handling
      • Trolleys
      • Hoists
      • Rail vehicles
    • Logistics
      • Storage and retrieval units
      • Transverse carriages
    • Palletizing / handling
      • Multi-axis handling robots
      • Gantries
  • Features
  • No matter how large the variety of applications for table positioning, the wide range of functions provided by the application module provides the right solution for every task.
    • Any number of target positions can be defined and selected by means of a fieldbus/system bus.
    • The positioning speed can be selected as required using the bus.
    • Software limit switches can be defined and evaluated.
    • Either incremental encoders or absolute encoders can be evaluated as external encoders.
    • Simple connection to the master controller (PLC).
    • Guided startup and diagnostics.
  • Benefits at a glance:
    • User-friendly user interface.
    • Users only need to enter the parameters for bus positioning (gear ratios, speeds, diameters).
    • Guided parameter setting process instead of complicated programming.
    • Monitor mode for optimum diagnostics.
    • Users do not need any programming experience.
    • Rapid familiarization with the system.
  • Set parameters instead of programming
  • Use the application module "Bus Positioning" or "Extended Positioning via Bus" (in the application version, it is a component of the MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio software for MOVIDRIVE®). A user-friendly interface guides you through the process of setting the parameters. All you have to do is enter the parameters you need for your application: for example, gear ratios, travel speeds, driving diameters, and target positions. The application module uses this information to create the control program and loads it into the inverter.
