Function Block Position Controller - _NCCPU011_MoveAbsolute_DINT

The OMRON FB library for position controllers provides a collection of function blocks developed for simple open loop axis positioning.
Most of the FBs share the same interface (I/O) regardless of the outut device employed for positioning (CJ1M, CPUs, CP1H or NC Units).
All the FBs rely on the functionalities built-in the CPUs and NC units.
None of the functions employ the feedback from an encoder for positioning.
Function Description
  • When Start (Execute) is turned ON, executes positioning on the axis of the specified Axis No. (Axis) with the specified Position command (Position), Speed command (Velocity), Acceleration rate (Acceleration) and Deceleration rate (Deceleration) using the selected Pulse output method.
  • The Positioning completed (Done) is turned ON when positioning by this FB is completed (i.e., target position reached). It is not turned ON when positioning is interrupted due to deceleration stop caused by another instance or error.
  • The Error flag (Error) and Error code (ErrorID) will be output when an error related to this FB occurs. They will be turned OFF when Start (Execute) is turned OFF.
  • If Start (Execute) is turned OFF before positioning is completed, they will be turned ON at least for one cycle when a corresponding condition occurs.
Basic function Executes positioning using absolute movement

Output Variables 
Name Variable Name Data type Range Description
ENO ENO BOOL   1(ON): FB operating normally
0(OFF): FB not operating normally
Positioning completed Done BOOL   1(ON) indicates that positioning has been completed
Error flag Error BOOL   1(ON) indicates that an error has occurred in the FB
Error code (may be omitted) Error ID WORD   The error code of the error in the FB will be output.For details of the errors refer to the sections of the manuals listed in the manuals mentioned above. When Unit No. or Axis No. is out of the range 0000 will be output.
