  • Using a Step Motor as a Generator

    Jun
    02

    Use a motor as a generator, you say? Surely those are completely different things. Turns out, they aren’t. If the motor is driving the load, it’s a motor. If the load is driving the motor, it’s a generator. Most of the motor applications I work with involve point to point position control: in getting from Point A to Point B, the motor must accelerate to some speed, then decelerate such that the motor speed reaches zero just as we arrive at Point B. During acceleration, energy is supplied to the motor as it drives the load.

  • Did You Know? Bit-wise AND Digital Inputs in Q Programs

    Apr
    28

     All Q programmable drives provide digital inputs that can be used singly or in combination. In programs where only a single input must be examined the TI (Test Input) command is commonly used. The TI command can be used sequentially to test many inputs one right after the other, but it can be cumbersome to create a decision tree in this fashion. A better method may be to bit-wise AND the I/O register. The result is a number that represents the ON & OFF conditions of only the inputs of interest.
