YHX Standard Profile : YHX Controller

By configuring the manufacturing line itself as a robot system around YHX controller, total optimization of production facility becomes possible.


Features of YHX standard profile

  • Eliminates writing ladder logic codes.
  • Adding operation through a pendant.
  • Perform simple direct value operation and specific point-to-point move.
  • Servo ON of any slider individually.
  • Obtain alarm information through the host PLC

01LCMR200 can be operated using your familiar PLC.

Use of YHX standard profile makes it possible to operate the LCMR200 from the host unit such as PLC via the I/O interface of each field work.

02Creation of YHX ladder by the customer is not needed.

Dedicated input and output signals are already assigned to the word and bit area of the field network.
Operations necessary for the robot motion such as servo ON or JOG movement can be performed without creating programs.

03Control using “movement file”

Control is performed using the point data “movement file” necessary to register the target position.

“Movement file” plays a role similar to point data.

04JOG or inching operation can be performed from the pendant even when no PLC is connected.

Even in a status where no PLC is connected, the axis can be operated using the JOG or inching operation from the programming pad.
When the LCMR200 is used for the circulation layout, the necessary adjustment work can be performed immediately.

05Prevention of operation leading to damage to the circulation section is supported.

Registering the pallet size to the parameter determines the slider operable area.
Even when a pallet or workpiece is larger than the overall length of the slider, a circulation operation failure can be detected. This avoids any slider transfer accident of the circulation unit and allows for safer software design.

Slider is ejected in a state where there is no circulation unit.
Slider is ejected in the opposite direction.
Circulation unit is moved during transfer.
Circulation unit is moved with the slider protruded.
Circulation unit is moved with the slider protruded.
Slider is ejected with the circulation unit deviated.

06Simple direct value operation and point designation movement can be performed.

About point designation

  • The operation pattern for up to 65,535 points in total can be designated.
  • The position, speed, acceleration, deceleration, and tolerance are designated for each point.

Overview of remote command

1. Command
2. Point designation
3. Direct value position designation
Servo ON, return-to-origin, movement, JOG, inching, etc.
Point number to be used.
When the direct value is designated,
the speed and acceleration use
the values stated in 2 and only
the position is changed.
1. Axis status
2. Point output
3. Current position output
Servo status, during movement,
or movement completion, etc.
Point number during movement
Current position is always output.

Direct value operation

Point is assigned to each slider and the coordinates are designated by the direct values.

One slider corresponds to one point.

Coordinate value is input to the point

Point designation operation

Next movement point number for each slider is designated.

Point number is assigned to the slider.
