Lenze Americas Kinematic modules for robot control
Standardized and reusable robotics software modules are available as a supplement to the Fast application toolbox for automation and control designs. Using the complete robotic modules allows mechanical engineers to integrate kinematics into machines tailored to specific tasks. The robotics software modules facilitate integrating robots into an overall automation system and controlling them accordingly during equipment operation. The robot's geometric calculation, the kinematic model, is integrated with a universal method of coordinate transformation. The software features a robotics core offering six degrees of movement. The modules use PLCopen Part 4 specifications for path planning, which enables implementation of functionalities such as Buffer Mode, Blending, Look-Ahead and motion-smoothing commands.
