AXIS#.MT.CNTL

Description

The controlword describes the behavior of the motion task.

Since this parameter is read bitwise, it can combine multiple functions into a single word. The meaning of each bit is described in the tables below.

If this bit is 0, then the next MT is not executed.

If this bit is 1, then the next MT is executed.

Reserved.

13

0x02000

If this bit is 0, then an attempt to trigger any new motion task will be accepted while this motion task is currently running.

If this bit is 1, then an attempt to trigger any new motion task will be denied while this motion task is currently running.

14

0x04000

If this bit is set, the motion task that is supposed to be started cannot be started from velocity 0. The motion can be started if a motion task already running will be interrupted.

15

0x08000

Reserved.

16 0x10000 The motion task target velocity will be taken from an external source such as an analog input signal.

Table 2:  MT Type

Bits 0, 1, 2, 3

Description

0000

Absolute. The target position is defined by the AXIS#.MT.P value.

1000

Reserved.

0001

Relative to Command Position. The target position is defined as:
Target position = AXIS#.PL.CMD + AXIS#.MT.P

0011

Relative to Previous Target Position. The target position is defined as:
Target position = Target position of the last motion task + AXIS#.MT.P

0101

Relative to External Start Position. The target position is defined as:

Target position = External start position + AXIS#.MT.P

0111

Relative to Feedback Position. The target position is defined as:
Target position = AXIS#.PL.FB + AXIS#.MT.P

Table 3:  Next MT Start Type

Bits 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Description

00000

Switches over to next MT after stopping. After an MT ends, the next MT starts immediately.

00001

Switches over to next MT after stopping and delay. After an MT ends, the MT following time (AXIS#.MT.TNEXTelapse in order to start the next AXIS#.MT.

00010

Switches over to next MT after stopping and external event. After an MT ends, an external event (such as a high digital input) must occur in order to start the next AXIS#.MT.

00011

Switches over to next MT after stopping, delay, and external event. After an MT ends, the AXIS#.MT.TNEXT must elapse and an external event (such as a high digital input) must occur in order to start the next AXIS#.MT.

00111

Switches over to next MT after stopping, then delay or external event. After an MT ends, the AXIS#.MT.TNEXT must elapse or an external event (such as a high digital input) must occur in order to start the next AXIS#.MT.

10000

Switches over to the next MT while still in motion (change on the fly). After reaching the target position (MT.P), the next MT starts. The drive then accelerates with the adjusted acceleration ramp of this next MT to the target velocity of this next AXIS#.MT.V.

Note: this is not possible if the following motion task is in the opposite direction. If the following task is in the opposite direction, the axis will come to rest before reversing in the opposite direction.


  • This is not possible if the following motion task is in the opposite direction. If the following task is in the opposite direction, the axis will come to rest before reversing in the opposite direction.

11000

Switches over to the next MT while still in motion (change on the fly). After reaching the target position (MT.P), the drive has already accelerated with the acceleration ramp of the next MT to the target velocity AXIS#.MT.V. Thus, the drive begins the next MT at the next MT target velocity.


  • This is not possible if the following motion task is in the opposite direction. If the following task is in the opposite direction, the axis will come to rest before reversing in the opposite direction.
