Applied Motion drives with Q programming functionality allow the user to program many different types of moves, interface with various I/O, and perform complicated tasks previously reserved for standalone motion controllers or PLC’s. The Q language is actually pretty easy to use, but the first project in any new language can be intimidating. To help accelerate the learning curve, Applied Motion Products has included a number of sample programs with every Q Programmer installation.
These sample programs can be found in the C:\Program Files\Applied Motion Products\Q Programmer directory. There are two subfolders, Q Programming Examples and Q Training Examples. These files can be accessed from within Q Programmer by using the File/Open Program menu option, and navigating to the above directory location.
Q Programmer is available for download from the Software section of our site.
