  • 30.07.2019 - New function boards for analog signals and for controlling double drives for one axis Open or Close

    With version WinPC-NC Professional, which is conceived for industrial use, it is possible for some time to control two drives synchronously for one axis direction. Furthermore, it is possible to generate a pure 0-10V analog signal due to expansion card EA160802 and Step 3S-card. Now we have also succeeded in realizing both functions for our other products by the PWM5V/10V board and the double axis board via an external hardware. Thus, these functions can also be used in WinPC-NC Light and WinPC-NC USB.

     

    Both boards are conceived for being plugged in between the USB hardware and the machine electronics. This means less wiring complexity. Due to various options concerning configuration and a detailed description the corresponding in- and outputs on the board can be individually allocated to unassigned input and output pins. Thus it is not necessary to make any changes concerning the actual wiring or assignment and it is quite easy to upgrade these functions.

    The signals for the individual functions can directly be connected on the board via integrated plug.

    For further information please have a look at the manual which can be downloaded by the link below.
