A2 E-CAM Example: Flying Shear (2) – Parameter setting

Following the sample program in A2 E-CAM Example – Flying Shear (1) – Basic Operation, this article includes the further introduction of the parameter configuration. Due to the difference in specifications of each flying shear mechanism, it is not appropriate to apply the sample parameters completely unchanged. This article will elaborate the related parameters and the principle for the proper configuration.

Delta A2 Servo Quick Start and FAQ

This article contains frequently asked questions and alarms for the Delta ASD-A2 servo system for readers’ reference:

Q1,AL.13/AL.14/AL.15 is displayed on power-up, how to deal with it?

A => For safety reasons, the default functions of the servo DI 6/7/8 are reverse limit/forward limit/emergency stop, and are all B (normally closed) contacts, so when there is no limit switch connected, The above alarm will occur when power is applied. If the motor (not the linear motor) is not connected to the mechanism, the user only wants to test it. You can temporarily remove these protection functions by setting the hundred digits of P2-15, P2-16, and P2-17 from 0 to 1. , change to A (normally open) contact; or directly set all three parameters to 0, which means to turn off these protection functions ! Users should take extra care when testing and fix the motor firmly for safety !

A2 E-CAM Example: Flying Shear (1) – Basic Operation

Flying shear is a common application of the E-CAM function. This article provides the Delta A2 servo’s sample program of the flying shear, including the trapezoidal E-CAM curve, parameter file with the PR commands, so users can follow the instruction and easily run the program to help with understanding the operating principle of flying shear and how to utilize it. Generally, the master axis of the flying shear is the encoder signal of the feeding axis while the slave axis is the sliding table, which is the target to be controlled in this example. Please refer to the video clip in the following links for the flying shear application => YouTube
