General Purpose Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) FA-M3V

The FA-M3 is designed and best known for its speed so it's only natural that the new series be named FA-M3V, where V stands for "Vitesse", which means speed in French. From day one, FA-M3 has relentlessly pursued higher speeds as the most effective means to solving customer challenges.

Over time, this has evolved into the High Speed IPRS (Instruction, Processing, Response and Scan) design concept.

Today, we have set a new record in this quadruple speed quest by creating the FA-M3V, which offers extensibility and reliability at incredible speed. FA-M3V, the leading edge controller for customers who will settle for nothing less than world's best.

Positioning Module (multi-channel pulse output) F3YP22-0P・F3YP24-0P・F3YP28-0P

Positioning Module F3YP2*The F3YP22-0P, F3YP24-0P and F3YP28-0P positioning modules are advanced I/O modules to be mounted onto the base module of an FA-M3 range free controller. It generates a position control path according to commands from the CPU module and output position reference as pulse trains. It comes in three models: F3YP22-0P, F3YP24-0P and F3YP28-0P, which can simultaneously control up two, four and eight axes respectively. With position reference pulse output, the module is suitable for driving servo motors or drivers, as well as stepper motors or drivers in position control applications.

Most suitable for a multi-axial positioning system

A single module can control positioning for up to 8 axes. When 16 F3YP28-0P modules are used, a multi-axial positioning system for up to 128 axes can be configured.

The module supports position control (PTP operation and multi-axis linear interpolation), speed control, and speed control to position control switchover as control modes.

The positioning module provides two operation modes: "direct operation" and "position data record operation". In direct operation mode, ladder programs are used to set target positions and target speeds. In position data record operation mode, the records of target positions and speeds registered in the positioning module beforehand are used for operations.

Fast and accurate positioning control

High-speed positioning command pulse output at 7.996 Mpps max. for servomotors and at 1.999 Mpps max. for stepper motors provides comfortable margin for driving linear, DD, and other high speed, high precision motors.

Short startup time of a minimum of 40 μs reduces unnecessary time that elapses before positioning starts, and allows a fast start of operation and also synchronization with peripheral devices.

A trigger start (e.g. by an external trigger, software trigger, or counter coincidence), for which target positions and target speeds are specified beforehand, allows shorter startup time of a minimum of 1 μs, which enables to start operation faster.

A short control period of 0.125 ms allows outputting positioning commands smoother than before, which enables faster movement on the work. In addition, statuses, such as positioning completed and current values, can be updated faster.

Support for various applications

The module has a channel for the pulse counter in which up to 8 Mpps pulses can be input. Thus, the module can detect the position of an external device and start positioning based on the position on an index table or the movement amount on a conveyor, which allows faster and more accurate position control.
