TX1260 | TwinCAT NC I
Follow the path with the PC
The TwinCAT NC Interpolation (NC I) is the NC system for interpolated path movements. TwinCAT NC I offers 3D interpolation (interpreter, set point generation, position controller), an integrated PLC with an NC interface and an I/O connection for axes via the fieldbus. All well known Fieldbus systems and programming standards in the CNC world, such as DIN 66025, are supported. TwinCAT NC I delivers open PC solutions for standard axial components and CNC controls. TwinCAT NC I uses the power of the PC and allows axis regulation under Windows 7. Hardware modules are simulated in the software, and are thus superfluous.
TwinCAT NC I – interpreter
The syntax which is laid down in DIN 66025 is a reliable descriptive language for machine sequences. There is also an additional extension to the DIN syntax with a number of useful functions:
techniques for sub-routines and jumps
zero offset shifts
M and H functions
