Plug-in for the CPX-E control system
Drag-and-drop: convenient configuration of the control module
You can configure and parameterise the individual modules of the CPX-E quickly and easily via a graphical interface. You can use drag-and-drop to change, replace, delete or add modules and conveniently set all module and channel parameters.
Simply expand: CODESYS programming
Use the familiar editors for programming controllers to IEC 61131-3 The plug-in extension for CODESYS integrates seamlessly into the CPX-E plug-in. You can use it to program your control system from simple point-to-point motions and SoftMotion applications with CNC and cam plate functions to robotics applications in accordance with PLCopen Part 4.
Save time: Integrate your drive system with just two clicks!
Instead of 100 mouse and keyboard actions, two are sufficient. You connect the CMMT-AS to the CPX-E controller by drawing a line, after which the plug-in integrates all necessary libraries, couples process data and accepts axis parameters. The drive system can be used immediately in the control program. This means you have more time for creating and commissioning the machine sequence.
Plug-in for the servo drive controller CMMT-AS
Fast: Five steps to your drive system!
Even if you have little experience, this plug-in will help you to quickly put a drive system into operation. The assistant for initial commissioning queries the most important settings and puts the drive system safely and easily into an operational state. You select the components, set a few parameters, load them into the CMMT-AS - that's it.
Detailed: Parameters in the expert view
In the expert view, the CMMT AS plug-in gives you full access to all parameters in the device, for example, to make further optimizations. Even if you do not have the latest plug-in installed, you can still use parameters from new firmware functions, because the plug-in automatically adapts to the scope of the latest firmware.
expressive: Graphics for diagnoses and analyses
Once connected to the Festo component, the plug-in shows you potential diagnostic messages at a glance. You can use the stored history of the last messages to draw conclusions about potential causes of errors and subsequent errors. The trace function records signal characteristics in the device at high frequency. This enables you to better analyze events that are difficult to observe.
