STI774_G9SP-HMI cost effective saftey controller monitoring
Omron Scientific Technologies Inc. introduces the Status Display Touchscreen for G9SP Programmable Safety Controllers. This simple plug-and-play touchscreen displays safety I/O error codes and enables G9SP users to easily view the status of safety inputs and outputs without the cost of installing and wiring indicator lights. Users are able to reset up to four zones directly from the touchscreen. The touchscreen is easily integrated into existing G9SP applications, or is available with the G9SP as a complete programmable safety control and monitoring solution (kit).

Parker application solution: Monofilament Winder

monofilament winder

Machine Objectives:

  • Controlled tension on monofilament
  • Simple operator interface
  • High throughput

Motion Control Requirements:

  • 2 Axes of coordinated motion
  • Linear interpolation
  • Constant torque from motor

Application Solution:

The prime requirement of the bobbin drive is to provide a controlled tension, which means operating in Torque mode rather than Velocity mode. This requirement leads to the use of a servo operating in Torque mode even though a servo in Velocity mode might be recommended with an overriding torque limit. Therefore, the servo normally operates as a constant-torque drive, but if the filament breaks, the velocity is limited to the programmed value. The traversing arm is usually driven by a smaller servo.
