New Product Announcement: iR-PU01-P -Weintek Single Axis Motion Control Module

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

TechTip: Using Languages On Weintek HMI

This TechTip is about using languages on Weintek HMI. Languages are controlled by a local word, LW9134. YouTube video of a demo project: Setting LW 9134 to 0 selects “Language 1“, setting to 1 selects “Language 2“, and so on. As usual, we’ve included a basic example program using the language setting. We’ll break down some of the key elements in our demo program so you can follow it. We’re using four languages in our demo, these are English, French, German and Italian. To select these, we’ll set LW 9134 to 0, 1, 2, or 3 respectively. The demo is Continue reading TechTip: Using Languages On Weintek HMI
