Course Code: INDECI000028

Duration: 3 Days

Time: 8:30 - 4:30

Type: Instructor Led


Cost: $1800 USD


This 3-Day course is designed to introduce participants to the SoMachine software package  in a condensed training format.  This course covers the basics required to work with, and develop applications.  Participant's are provided with a quick introduction to the SoMachine software, Servo based motion and the SCU HMI/Controller integration. This is an in-depth, hands-on technical training with many supporting exercises.  Basic programming of the Magelis SCU is also covered.  This course assumes prior Vijeo Designer experience and does not focus on screen development.

Labs include:  Creation of a "Labeling Machine" that includes a state machine with manual, automatic and error handling modes, IO configuration, operation, CANopen configuration and operation, simple motion control via CAN to an ILA drive , Magelis SCU interface to the developed machine is also covered..
