thread back from the dead!
I have an S2b (2005) with the last of the a00 controls and am looking at using the (8) i/o as shown above to signal with 24v to a yukiwa rotary indexer with the ac3-10 control box. I don't have any ice cube relays as shown above. Is this machine still NPN? I guess I could just test with a fluke, but not out in the shop at the moment.
What I'm trying to figure out is the PNP wiring, as thats what the Yukiwa is setup for as well.
I have from the yukiwa and not sure where to hook up these wires:
AST-start, +24v Is this constant 24v? If so, where do I tie this into the Brother?
FIN1-block termination 1, 0v? Block termination as in ground or a block of code termination?
INCOM-input common,0v Im thinking any terminal from 51-60 for this, but direct, or with relay?
OUTCOM-output common, 24v, terminals 102-110? direct?
What terminals do I need to hook these wires up to on my brother XTI/XTO board? I think I have a good handle on the set-up side of mapping the terminals through Data Bank/User Parameters/External Input/External Output screens
I'm more trying to figure out if I need relays for the input side or directly wire these in.
What I'm envisioning is code has a M402, stops all motion/outputs a 24v signal on say terminal 110, trigger yukiwa to rotate 90 degrees, yukiwa then sends signal back on terminal 60, that triggers an M403 and brother keeps on rocking!
Thanks in advance, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
