Comprehensive software tools
Depending on the control system and application, NUM provides a diverse range of tools for development, parametrisation, starting operating and maintenance:
Flexium Tools are part of the Flexium Suite and include all functions needed for machine integration and commissioning. Flexium Tools enable you to program, configure and optimise all system components within a unique unified environment:
NUM CNC SERVİS
- Flexium NCKs (CNC)
- Servo drives and motors
- EtherCAT and CANopen gateways with a comprehensive set of I/O and logic terminal
Easy operation Flexium Tools’ menu structure provides a perfect overview of the entire system. Navigation inside the device tree is simple and clear, allowing easy access to all functions for quick change of settings.
Project handling Access rights can be defined for different users. Each project consists of one single file to ensure easy handling and prevent data loss. New equipment or versions are quickly integrated using EDS for CANopen devices and Device Descriptions (DevDesc) for NUM devices. Libraries can be used in different versions and can be compiled to protect intellectual property. Complete projects, including libraries, devices and the source code, can be archived and then restored at any time in the future.
PLC System programming The PLCs of the Flexium system are programmed in accordance with IEC 61131-3 and support a variety of graphical and textual programming environments:
- Structured Text (ST)
- Sequential function Chart (SFC)
- Continuous Function Chart (CFC)
- Function Block Diagram (FBD)
- Ladder Diagram (LD)
- Instruction List (IL)
Flexium NCK (CNC) parameterizing Dedicated editors for options, programming, memory, channels, axes (with individual windows for settings, coupling, kinematics, travels, servo systems and HSC), miscellaneous hand wheels, axes calibration and more ensure easy handling and the best overview during editing.
Servo drive parameterizing All servo drives of the Flexium System can be found and accessed easily in the menu structure of Flexium Tools. For better overview, the structure is displayed in the same way the system is set up, e.g. servo drives are listed under the controlling Flexium NCK.
Field busses Theoretically, any CANopen and/or EtherCAT compatible device can be connected to the bus using the EDS/ESI/XML file supplied with the device. NUM provides a comprehensive range of most common I/O components based on EtherCAT technology (EtherCAT = Ethernet for Control Automation Technology). This is the real-time Ethernet technology standardized by the EtherCAT Technology Group. NUM provides machine panels (like MP04), drives for auxiliary axes and other devices that, by means of dedicated windows and libraries, can be easily integrated as field bus devices (CANopen).
Instruments For easy commissioning, a huge set of instruments is available: Frequency analyser, Ball bar, Contour accuracy, Oscilloscope and others.
SDK for NUMpass HMI Software Development Kit for customised expansion of the user interface NUMpass HMI for the Axium Power and the Num Power. It allows you to program your own pages using HTML and Java Script.
SDK for the communication with the CNC Software Development Kit for communication between an Axium Power or a Num Power and a PC. Enables the completion of user interfaces, production data acquisition etc. using object oriented programming languages.
Easy Backup Easy Backup is the simple and fast backup & recovery solution for the FS151i and FS152i. With this software, images from individual partitions or entire data carriers of the FS151i or FS152i can, directly and without any complicated installation, be generated on the Easy Backup USB stick.
