PC SUITE NEWS
 
agito is glad to announce our new PC Suite version, with its improve user experience, consisting of the following improvements (partial list).
 
 
CNC motions made easy                    
A new tool to easily define CNC trajectories, initiate the motion and perform data recording and display.
 
User can easily build a full CNC trajectory from a list of supported building blocks (Linear motion, ARC motion, Helix motion, delay, Relative/Absolute mode and more...). User can also load a predefine trajectory.
 
Easy data recording tab enables detailed definition of data recording, including 2D graphs, with few mouse clicks.
 
One additional click and the motion is initiated, data recording is configured and started automatically and detailed status are displayed along the overall CNC motion.
 
 
 
 
Force control and Operation Mode switching
agito controllers now support Force Control Operation Mode (in addition to the previously supported: Position, Velocity and Current Operation Modes).
 
The new PC Suite tool: Tune/Force provides easy and intuitive access to:
 
  1. Monitoring the Force Reference, Feedback and Error.
  2. Selecting from a variety of options for the Force Control Reference type and parameters (analog and user defined commands).
  3. Configuration of Position >> Force and Force >> Position automatic switching.
  4. Tuning of the Force Control PID.
  5. Automatic setup of data recording for Force signals.
  6. Automatic measurement of Force Control bandwidth. 
 
3D Error Mapping
agito controllers now support 3D error mapping (in addition to the previously supported: 1D and 2D error mapping).
 
The Error Mapping PC Suite tool is now updated to fully support this 3D mode with intuitive and easy to use GUI. In addition, additional features were added:
 
  1. The error mapping table can be negated (to compensate for a wrongly inversed measurement).
  2. The error mapping table can be re-ordered (per axis, or all axes), to compensate fro changing the motion direction.
 
 
Variety of Floating tools
Variety of floating windows are now supported, to enhance the access to all controller statuses and controls from any tool.
 
The Floating tools list consists of:
 
  1. Terminal.
  2. Data Recording.
  3. Motions.
  4. Statuses.
  5. Discrete Inputs.
  6. Discrete Outputs.
  7. User Program status and control.
  8. Error Log.
  9. Axis and machine health.
 
Here are pictures of some of these floating tools:
 
 
 
Improved data recording and display
Our data recording tool (at the PC Suite and also new controllers firmware) has been improved to support:
 
  1. Up to a total of 16,500 data recording points (will be even significantly increased int he future).
  2. Up to 8 vectors to be recorded at the same time.
  3. Down to 61 micro-seconds recording gap.
  4. Automatic setup of the data to record and the trigger setup in few mouse clicks.
  5. Up to 4 charts automatically (and more can be added manually).
  6. Factor and offset can be applied on any recorded vector.
  7. Automatic measurements and display over the graph: Average, RMS, Peak-To-Peak, Frequency and much more...
  8. Independent data recording setup per each tool (task). No need to redefine the data recording when switching between tasks.
  9. And much more...
 
Homing tool
 
The new PC Suite tool: Tools/Homing provides easy and intuitive access to define the Homing sequence (and parameters) for the given axis, as well as to download this process, to test it and to view all relevant statuses.
 
  1. User can define and manage the sequence, with few mouse clicks.
  2. User can load predefined sequences (and then modify them if required).
  3. User can edit the parameters of each step.
  4. User can test the sequence and view statuses.
 
Configuring an Homing process, and modifying to the specific needs of a given axis, were never as easy and straightforward as it is now with this new tool.
   
 
User panels
 
User Panels is a tool that enables the user to easily define his own GUI (panels) to monitor any status of the controller, and to control any parameter of the controller.
 
The user has access to a wide set of GUI building blocks, each tied to a controller parameter (or status) to control it or to display its value continuously.
 
A user panel is defined by the user, without writing even a single line of source code and without any requirement for any knowledge in advance.
 
A partial list of the supported GUI building blocks (to be even expanded int he future):
 
  1. Numeric display to show a status (few options).
  2. LEDs with color control to show status of values or bits.
  3. Edit box to enter a value.
  4. Slider to set a value.
  5. Button to act as Action command (sends a user defined sequence of messages).
 
The user can view up to 10 user's panels in parallel, and can save and loads sets of user's panel per a given task (or user).
 
Each user panel, or actually each item within a user panel can be tied to a fixed axis or to a user defined axis, or to the currently Active axis. This creates very useful flexibility when defining a user panel.
 
Using User's Panels is very effective and makes a lot of fun. We ask you to try it at least once, to understand how powerful and useful it is.
 
 Here is a sample of a User's Panel which we defined in order to test the Automatic Operation Mode Switching between Position Operation Mode and Current Operation Mode:
