(d) The specification of limit switch output setting is changed.
(4) Creation of the Motion program
There are following 2 types Motion programs in Q173CPU(N)/Q172CPU(N).
(a) Control program (Only control instructions are used.)
(b) Axis designation program (G-code which controls the axis is used.)
Although the Motion program created by the Motion CPU (A series) can be used
as the axis designation program of the above (b), the setting files cannot be used
The procedure of appropriating a program are shown below.
1) Open the Motion program file (svgcode.bin) created by Motion CPU (A
series) using a text editor.
2) Copy the appropriation parts and paste it using a program editing of
(5) PLC CPU parameter setting
Set the PLC parameters (Multiple CPU setting, etc.) newly.
(a) PLC ready flag (M2000)
The PLC ready flag (M2000) turned on/off using the PLC CPU in the Motion
CPU (A series) turns on/off by interlock of STOP/RUN switch. (The control
using a PLC CPU is possible in the parameter setting.)
(b) Forced stop signal
Although the emergency stop input is executed with the CPU module or
PLC base unit of the terminal, there is not this terminal input in
Q173CPU(N)/Q172CPU(N) and the forced stop signal is used as the same
The forced stop signal can set an optional bit device with the parameter.
(EMG input of each servo amplifier can be used.)
(c) Internal rechargeable battery for memory back-up
Back-up for the IC-RAM memory of the Motion CPU module is executed
the internal rechargeable battery of standard equipment in the Motion CPU
module. (It can back-up about for 1 month with full charge.)
If a problem occurs at the above specification, for example when
transporting the system on a ship, use the external battery connected via
the SSCNET connector. (The external battery use/not use is set in the
(d) Operation cycle
The fixed cycle (0.8ms, 1.7ms, 3.5ms, 7.1ms, 14.2ms) except for the
automatic setting for operation cycle can be set.
