Master-K 120s
Built in functions
- Interruption function MK120s can perform interrupt function using input points without any special interrupt modules. - High Speed Counter function Using HSC function, High speed pulses which are generated from encoder of pulse generator can be counted. - Positioning control The position of servo or stepping motor can be controlled by positioning function. - PID control PID function is integrated into the man unit. And, all the PID function can be performed with instruction (PIDB, PID8AT). P operation, PI operation and on/off operation can be selected easily. Manual output (user-defined forced output) is available. By proper parameter setting, it can keep stable operation regardless of external disturbance. The operation scan time (the interval that PID controller gets from an actuator) is changeable for optimizing the system characteristics. PWM (pulse width modulation) output is available.
