I have a resource that is supposed to make a revolute movement controlled by a PLC. The PLC has to know the current location of the resource in degrees and has to return a value where it has to move to, also in degrees. Is it possible to achieve this in Process Simulate, and if yes; how?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes you can do this.
Therefore, you need to add a LB to your resource/device.
Inside the LB you can create a parameter "Joint Distance Sensor". It´s return value is e.g. "REAL".
This parameter you have to transfer via LB exit to any signal which is communicating with your PLC.
Thanks for your reply.
How do I connect this parameter to the LB exit? I created the parameter and an exit signal in the LB, but not sure how to connect these two.
Thanks in advance!
When creating a LB exit of type "REAL", just put "jds_parameter1" in value expression of the exit.
Just start typing "jds_" and it will show you the list of proposals.
At least, you should have a signals of type REAL. Add it in the area of the exist under "connected signals".
