AXIS POSITIONING MODULE (TYPE 1) GEK-83543A GENERAL DESCRIPTION The Axis Positioning Module (APM) is an intelligent, programmable, single-axis positioning controller integrated into the Series Six Programmable Controller (PC) system. The APM provides a real time interface between the Series Six PC and a servo-controlled axis. The user can monitor and control the APM from a Program Development Terminal (PDT) while the APM performs the complex calculations required to control a precision servo system. Due to the complete integration of the APM into the PC system, the Series Six provides a predictable, yet flexible, axis control capability. The features and benefits of the APM are summarized in Table 1. The Axis Positioning Module resides in a Series Six I/O rack where it is serviced by the Series Six Central Processing Unit (CPU) in the course of a normal CPU scan. (Figure 1 provides a view of the module circuit board and faceplate.) The CPU communicates with the APM via the Series Six I/O Bus using the standard Series Six protocol. The APM translates the positioning commands it receives from the CPU into a position versus time profile, determines the current position of the axis using the input from an absolute position feedback device (a resolver), and compares it with the commanded position indicated by the profile. This process generates a +/-10 V dc (maximum) velocity command output to a drive which moves the axis. A complete command set (containing over 70 commands) and single or multiple resolver feedback capabilities allow the APM to be utilized in numerous applications. Typical position ranges are 140 feet with a resolution of .OOOl inch, or 1400 feet with .OOl inch resolution. Typical velocities are 600 ipm with .OOOl inch resolution, or 6000 ipm with -001 inch resolution. Up to 10 stored programs (canned cycles) can be downloaded from the CPU to an APM; collectively, the canned cycles can contain up to 492 move commands. A canned cycle is called, or commanded to execute, from relay ladder logic. The APM interface specifications are provided in Table 2; the resolver specifications are provided in Table 3. Refer to the APM Manual, GEK-25363, and the APM CommandsYRetur-n D-at-a a-nd- EYrror Chart GEJ-6041, for further information. 1 Axis Positioning Moduie (Type 1) GEK-83543 TABLE 1.

Requirements: ON state = 24 V dc +/-lo%; OFF state < 3 V dc; input current = 10 rnA at 24 V; Input impendance = 2000 ohms. Interpretation: OFF = overtravel. A jumper (JP3) is provided to disable the Overtravel Switch function. Same as Negative Overtravel. Requirements: Same as Negative Overtravel. Interpretation: ON = Negative side of Home Position; OFF = Positive side of Home Position; Requirements: ON state = 24 Vdc +/-10%; OFF state -=z 3 V dc; Input current = 10 mA at 24 V; Input impendance = 2000 ohms. Interpretation: ON = Drive OK; OFF = Drive not OK. A jumper (JP4) is provided to disable the DRIVE OK input. Differential output of D/A converter with following characteristics: Resolution: 13 bits including sign Linearity: .012% of Full Scale Output Offset voltage at zero output: +/-500 microvolts max. Maximum output voltage: +/-10v +/-.3 v Minimum output load resistance: 2000 ohms. A/D converter input with the following characteristics: Input range: 0 to +10.0Vdc Gain factor: + 10.0 V dc input produces an output value of 100 to the CPU Input impedance: Greater than 1OK ohms Output on Master APM; Input on Slave APM. Jumpers JPl, JP2 and JP5 configure the APM for Normal or Master/Slave operation. A High-Capacity I/O power supply or Model 60 CPU is required to provide backplane power to the APM.
