Simotion System and Programming Course (MC-SMO-SYS)

  • You will learn how to configure and start up the SIMOTION Motion Control system with the associated drives and visualization devices. The course also includes the programming of movement sequences with the help of Motion Control Chart and ladder diagram/function block diagram. The technologies positioning, synchronous operation, probe, and cam plates are explained and reinforced by means of practice-oriented examples. The course enables you to use SIMOTION optimally in the automation of production machinery. The programming course (MC-SMO-PRG) builds on this to deal in depth with the creation of parameterizable blocks.
