Componentization by library function
Supports object orientation

*It can be downloaded free of charge from our website.

Enhanced communication between the upper level and the device

Supports various network protocols

Supports various network protocols

Cam synchronous control expanded so that anyone can use it

Extended cam editor [Ver.1.4 Additional Features]

Create cam waveforms more easily by intuitively editing graphs and numerically editing sections.

Extended cam editor

Supports multiple types of cam waveforms [Ver.1.4 Additional Features]

You can freely draw a cam waveform using a generic cam curve.
Applies to applications using dedicated cam curves.

Supports multiple types of cam waveforms

Function blocks optimized for each application
■ Floating Trapezoid [Patent pending][Ver.1.4 Additional Features]

It combines the versatility of a trapezoid with the connectivity of a quintic curve. You can create cam waveforms that suppress rapid acceleration and deceleration.

Floating Trapezoid
It has about twice the editing freedom of a conventional curve.
Floating Trapezoid
Check the waveform and use the sliders to adjust the time distribution for each section.

■ Rotary cutter

In packaging machines and cutting machines, it is possible to perform cutting operations that synchronize the speed of the cutter blade with the feed direction of the product. The cut surface is cleaner than the cutting method with constant circumferential speed.

Rotary cutter

Expanding CNC synchronous control so that anyone can use it

CNC program editor

You can easily create a program for the first time because you can check the trajectory while writing the program.

CNC program editor

Supports various CNC programs
■ 2-axis, 3-axis linear (circular) interpolation

Move from current coordinates to target coordinates by linear (circular) interpolation

Supports various CNC programs

■ Coordinate transformation

Work and tool coordinates are also supported.

Coordinate transformation

■ Smooth the path, add R to the path

Path connections can be changed to smooth trajectories.

Smooth the path, add R to the path

■ Iterative processing

Possible to repeat by incrementing the counter or by conditional branching.

Iterative processing

■ Change of machining plane, coordinate transformation

Set the plane on which circular interpolation will be performed. 3D processing is also applicable.

Change of machining plane, coordinate transformation

■ Tool diameter compensation

Correction is performed at the specified distance inside and outside the rectangle.

Tool diameter compensation

■ Tool length compensation

Correct the path according to the tool length used.

Tool length compensation

■ H-switch function

This function allows you to turn the IO output ON/OFF when the interpolation movement distance reaches a predetermined amount.

H-switch function

■ Subprograms

Programs can be modularized.


Achieve object-oriented programming

• Divided implementation by POU (program configuration unit)
• Program part, function part (FB, FUN), variable definition part (structure, enumeration, union)
• FB methods and inheritance (equivalent to class concept), interfaces available
• Realization of componentization by library function

Achieve object-oriented programming

Sample image of modularization and structuring

Realization of highly readable programs through modularization and structuring.
Contributes to reducing design man-hours as it is easy to reuse designs.
