Approach to the Diagnosis and Configuration of Servo Drives in Heterogeneous Machine Control Systems
During modernization of machines, development of prototypes, development or the retrofit of special modifications, a part of previously used components stay in the system. It is not rational to replace it. CNC system in this case should support the multiprotocol control and provide the possibility to configure mixed equipment. Modern servo drives have built-in diagnostic tools, they are designed for devices of the same manufacturer and cannot be used in heterogeneous environment. The article describes the approach of development and the use of special-purpose application tools for diagnostics, allowing to collect and analyze data simultaneously from the equipment of different manufacturers with various industrial communication protocols. The research of the application tools in the process of the startup of the milling machine Quaser with SERCOS III and EtherCAT servo drives is also presented. Solution for the milling machine with servo drives SERCOS III and EtherCAT is demonstrated; the results of machining the test part are analyzed.
