Horner Controlling a Stepper Drive Horner features many HMIs that include I/O Today, we're using an XL4 which is equipped with two high speed digital outputs for two axis of motion Cscape, Horner's free programming software, configures the output between the options of PWM, high speed counter output, or stepper In our case, we just want a typical stepper for our stepper drive. This will allocate two regions of variables AQ421 through AQ440 for analog outputs and I1617 through I1620 for digital inputs The analog outputs are set points for both high speed outputs. Let's look at just stepper 1 axis Parameters start/run frequency and acceleration/run/deceleration count quantify our move profile The only required parameters however are run frequency and run count The others can remain zero. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission Register %AQ421 %AQ423 %AQ425 %AQ427 %AQ429 Stepper Start Frequency Run Frequency Acceleration Count Run Count Deceleration Count Value 0 15000 0 3200 0 Finally, set Q1 to true and Q1 will output the pulse train at the requested frequency and count. In this example, the drive is set to 3200 counts per rev and it will move at 15kHz After the move is done, I1617 becomes true representing move complete If bad values are used in the move profile for axis one, I1618 will be a value of 1. What if you want to command direction? There are several more digital outputs you can use to command the direction bit on a stepper drive. What if you want to jog the drive? Make the value of run count a very large number like 4 billion and reset Q1 when you desire to stop. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission

Configuring the Horner XL4 for Ethernet communications with ABB VFD's Multiple VFD installations can be enhanced with a centrally located HMI/Controller for display, alarming, and control of the remote drives The following outlines the configuration for Ethernet communications of the new Horner XL4 OCS All-in-One controller to ABB VFD's. First install and configure the correct Ethernet Fieldbus Adapter Module for the ABB drive you want to communicate with ACS350/355 drives use the FENA-01 EthernetIPModbus TCP module The ACS550 and ACS800 use the RETA-01 EthernetIPModbus TCP module Set the Protocol, IP address, COMM PROFILE to ABB DRIVES, and configure the specific data you want to read and write to in the drive under Drive Parameter section 51 (See note) Next, using CScape version 9.3, Service Pack 3 or newer, select Protocols under the Networking configuration in the Project Navigator and then choose "Modbus Tcp/Ip Client v3.05" for the Ethernet protocol. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission Next select the Network button on the Protocol Config screen In the Port configuration leave everything at default except change the Timeout from 10000 mSec to 1000 mSec In the Update Scan configuration, also change the Reacquire Time from 1000000 mSec to 10000 mSec These two settings should be kept short until communications with the drives has been established. Once configuration and programming is completed, the Timeout and Reacquire Time can be lengthened to optimize the communications. Under the Status configuration, enter a register that will contain the status of the Ethernet communications This is usually a register location outside your normal program registers. Notice that this is 4 Double Integers (DINT), so do not use any registers above this address for at least 8 registers Once this is completed, select OK and return to the Protocol Config screen. Now select the Devices button This brings up the Device List The Device List shows the devices that can be configured to communicate with To add a device, select the Add button. © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission To add a device enter the Name and IP address of the first drive to communicate with Leave the Port at 502 and enable the Status monitoring if you want to monitor the status of communications to this device Be sure to include another unused register for the status word for communications to this drive Take note that this is also a DINT, so two register will be used for this status word Under Device Options select “Modbus PLC 5-Digit Addressing” as the Device Type Select OK and make sure the device you entered is now in the list of devices. You can select Add and repeat the Device Config steps to add any additional drives you want to communicate with on the network When done, select OK on the Device List and return to the © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission Protocol Config screen Then select the Scan List button The Scan List shows you the polling configuration of the XL4 to each device you have configured. Select Add to configure the Data Mapping between the XL4 and drive unit First select the drive you want to map to in the Device Name Then in the Device Register enter the Modbus start address of 40001 Next enter the number of words you want to read from the ABB Drive based on how many words you configured to read from and write to in the ABB drive In the Local section enter the starting register you want to write the data to in the XL4 Make sure the Update Type is set to "Polled Read/Write" for continuous polling. Now select OK to close the Data Mapping screen Select Add to map any additional drives you want to communicate with When done, select OK to close the Scan List screen, and OK to close © 2015 Logic, Inc ALL RIGHTS RESERVED No part of this content may be copied, reproduced or otherwise utilized without permission the Protocol Config screen This completes the configuration of communications to the ABB drives. Once the project is downloaded to the XL4 it will continuously poll all the drives in the Scan List and place the data at the registers you designated for each drive Display screens and logic can now be added to the Horner XL4 to display and control the remote ABB drives.
