Yaskawa's Kinematics Toolbox for MotionWorks IEC Pro

March 6, 2012
Simplified Kinematics for General Purpose Motion Controllers

The Kinematics Toolbox is an IEC61131-3 user library which can be imported into projects created with Yaskawa's MotionWorks IEC Pro, Version 2 programming software. The IEC61131-3 programming environment provides a perfect means to make simple kinematic mechanisms easier to implement with standard general-purpose motion controllers. The Kinematics Toolbox includes two PLCopen control function blocks, along with supporting functions, which provide control of a Delta-2 style and a Four-Bar style kinematic mechanism.
