Fast configuration and approach to positions with Web Config and Parameter Cloud
The Optimised Motion Series with EPCO can be configured in two ways. Very simple and fast configuration can be carried out using Web Config and the Parameter Cloud on a server. The controller has its own IP address and a catalogue is available with all the data necessary for pre-defined and tested combinations. This means users save a great deal of time while being able to approach up to seven freely definable positions.
More complex configuration with 31 positioning variants can be realised via the Festo Configuration Tool FCT, a Festo software platform for electric drive solutions. This configuration method saves up to 70 percent of the time required with conventional solutions. Working from a PC, the control mode "Binary profile31" allows users to configure up to 31 travel steps as well as, for example, inputs for acceleration, speed, force and jerk limitation - without the need for a PLC!
