64-bit Data Type Support As digital technology evolves, 64 bit data is becoming more commonplace in automation. Many systems nowadays, especially those requiring extremely high precision such as semiconductor cutting, glue dispensing, motion applications etc., use 64 bit data to achieve high-accuracy control as rounding errors due to insufficient precision can be avoided. 64 bit data type is also being adopted for storing very large values, as can be commonly seen in record keeping applications like machine timers or accumulative power consumption in smart meters. Starting in EBPro V6.03.02, Weintek cMT Series HMI began to offer 64 bit data type Continue reading New Feature – Weintek cMT Series – 64bit Data

Round 9 and Bemsee were at Brands Hatch in Kent, Brands is considered the spiritual home of Bemsee and is the track they end the season on. Matt started the weekend with 555 points with closest contender, Tommy Downes on 468, a good finish in race one on Saturday would clinch the rookie title for Matt, but this is racing, anything can happen and it ain’t over til it’s over! Matt’s first race, race 10 on the program was started, however a start line collision meant it was red flagged to be re-run later on in the program. Having qualified Continue reading Race Report from Round 9 – Brands Hatch Indy. October 2019

Having invested heavily in research to develop an easy-to-use, integrated motion control solution, Weintek have launched the iR-PU01-P, a single axis motion control module to their iR Series of remote i/o. This new module works with existing iR Series communication couplers to control stepper/servo motors, making it great for applications requiring positioning control, such as packaging and filling machines, measurement systems, printing machines, tension controllers and conveyor systems. With the release of iR-PU01-P, Weintek also provide a library of motion control function blocks for use within CODESYS. By connecting a cMT HMI’s CODESYS with the iR-COP+iR-PU01-P via CANopen, these motion Continue reading New Product Announcement: iR-PU01-P -Weintek Single Axis Motion Control Module
Round 7, held 3rd/4th August saw Lamonde Automation sponsored Matt at the famous Cadwell Park circuit, a favourite of riders and spectators alike. This is the second time that the minitwins have raced at Cadwell this year. Saturday morning, Matt, qualified 5th on the grid with a 1:41.806, the rookie lap record has stood at 1:41.1 since 2012, set by Ashley Buxton. Race 1, Matt got off to a flying start and was in 4th position into the first corner, however, a start-line incident caused the race to be red-flagged. Mark Taylor, who was 4th on the grid had stalled, Continue reading Race Report from Round 7 – Cadwell Park. August 2019
