In this advanced level programming class, students will configure and customize the Compass Front end and connect it to the IEC controller using a Template project. Students will progress through self-guided Minilabs to build a customized Compass layout and add in functionality for the following applications: CNC milling, 3D printing and 2D Cutting Machine.
Students will receive a copy of the class training manual, as well as selected product, user, and instruction materials in paper and/or electronic format.
Connecting to the Training Class:
Each student will need a laptop with a camera and microphone, an internet connection and a quiet place to learn. Each morning you'll be connecting into a demo/laptop/camera package that is located at the Yaskawa America HQ facility in Waukegan, IL via our Splashtop system. You’ll also be connecting into our go-to-webinar system to see the class presentation and to be able to communicate with the instructor. We'll contact you before the class with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions on how to connect to the Splashtop and the go-to-webinar systems.
This class is designed for the programming engineer who already has significant application experience with the MotionWorks IEC hardware configuration and programming environment, and is comfortable with the IEC 61131-3 standard and PLCopen standard. This is an advanced class and can be quite challenging. Proper preparation is critical for successful completion.
These training courses are prerequisites:
- PLCopen Part 4: Coordinated Motion (TRM010-MPiec-PLCopenPart4)
