The TML_LIB_X20 Motion Control Library embeds the Technosoft drives' intelligence into a B&R PLC environment. The library is a collection of high-level functions and blocks allowing the control of the Technosoft intelligent drives from a B&R PLC. It works with B&R's Automation Studio v3.0 SP3.
With TML_LIB functions, you can control Technosoft drives individually or grouped by sending commands for simple (TS_MoveAbsolute), complex (TS_SetPVT, TS_PVTPoint, etc.) or synchronized (TS_GearIn) moves. The library is completed by several non-motion driving functions and blocks necessary for drive management (TS_Power or TS_ReadStatus). All library functions have been designed using the guidelines described in the PLC standards for motion control, so they can be integrated on any development platform that is IEC-61131-3 compliant.
Using TML_LIB directly from the PLC, you will be able to communicate with the drive via CAN-bus, to send motion commands, to get information automatically or request drive status and check or modify parameters. In this way, TML_LIB_X20 allows you to focus on the main aspects related to your specific application, and to easily use the drive and execute motion commands by calling the appropriate functions from the library.
Beside the functions presented in the PLC standards, the library also contains functions that implement specific features found only on the Technosoft drives (TS_MovePVT). The motion control features of our intelligent drives are based on their high-level programmability in TML (Technosoft Motion Language). TML_LIB_X20 offers access to TML functionality without needing to use any TML commands.
