Limits

Set up event triggers

Position Error

  • Position Error occurs when the difference between the actual position and commanded becomes greater than the Trigger Value.

  • When a position error occurs, the selected Action is executed after the Duration in ms.

Pos/Neg (+/-) Hardware

  • Pos/Neg (+/-) Hardware occurs when the logic state of the (+ or -) hardware limit becomes active. The Trigger State allows you to set the input as active high or low. When a (+ or -) hardware error occurs, the selected Action is executed after the Duration in ms.

Amp Fault

  • Amp Fault occurs when the Drive/amplifier has a Fault. The Trigger State should almost always be checked. When an amp fault occurs, the selected Action is executed after the Duration in ms.

Home

  • Home (Capture Status) occurs when the capture state during a homing routine triggers. When the home capture occurs, the selected Action is executed after the Duration in ms.

Pos/Neg (+/-) Software

  • Pos/Neg (+/-) Software occurs when the logic state of the (+ or -) software limit becomes active. The Trigger State allows you to set the input as active high or low. When a (+ or -) software error occurs, the selected Action is executed after the Duration in ms.
