Elmo Motion Control G-MAS: EASII Error Correction with Quick Config
Building a Motion Control System Has
Never Been So Easy
Learn and Practice online to easily setup any motion
control system, Elmo’s new Remote Practice System
Motion control is the key to productivity in today’s automation systems. Motion
control plays a crucial role in printing, packaging, laboratory diagnostics,
semiconductor manufacturing and industrial robotics equipment. Efficient machine
motion increases throughput, enhances quality and reduces costs.
The complexity of building sophisticated motion control systems has just become
simpler. Elmo Motion Control’s new free Remote Practice System (RPS) is now
available. The system connects you to a preconfigured motion control hardware
system using a video camera and a network connection. This enables you to
configure, tune and run a motion control solution, quickly and easily.
Simply logon to learn about Elmo’s advanced motion control and high performance
servo technology features. An EtherCAT or CANopen networking enables a user to
control any of Elmo’s servo controllers. No prerequisite knowledge of prior
experience in motion control is needed. RPS does not require familiarity with Elmo’s
drivers and controllers. The Remote Practice System (RPS) is an Elmo Motion Control
exclusive easy-to-use learning and practice system. It’s intended to demonstrate
Elmo’s simple and advanced set-up with any target machine.
The RPS motion hardware system comprises of a motion controller, Elmo’s Gold
Maestro, with three Elmo servo drives and motors, and Elmo’s Application Studio
(EASII) software. This allows you to build a complete running system online with no
need to purchase or install any hardware or application.
It is an educational system for automation and motion control engineers. For
beginners, it is an efficient and comprehensive introduction to advance motion
control. For skilled engineers, it demonstrates the most updated state-of-the-art
servo tuning, complex multi-axis capabilities and real time EtherCAT or CANopen
As Simple as A, B, C
After logging in (or registering for the first time), the system enters the main screen.
This screen contains several links to tutorials and exercises which assists and instruct
the user with the EASII environment.
By dividing the tutorials into top level and sub-categories, you can access many
features directly. Simply navigate to any target tutorial and get started. For example,
the Auto Tuning exercise walks the user through a few stages to complete a simple
drive-motor tuning. Each tutorial box is paired with contents and goals description.
A video camera feeds real time images for every specification entered on the system.
A sequenced procedure walks the user through, step-by-step showing how to
configure and calibrate motion control parameters. The procedures:
Configure the EtherCAT network
Perform complex multi-axis synchronized motions
Develop IEC-61131-3 programs
Perform simplified and advanced automatic motor tuning.
Show advanced system analysis in the frequency and time domains
Sequence motions and drive programing steps.
All demonstrated simply and easily without familiarity with motion control
programming or Elmo’s drivers and controllers.
Starting a RPS session takes you into the remote station control area on Elmo’s
When accessing the station, the system is ready for operation in a default
configuration. All drives are tuned and the motion controller is ready to perform a
Easy to Implement
Design, execute and test multi-axis motion from start to finish
Fast and easy drive setup and tuning with an automatic wizard interface
Simple to use intelligent motion tools for engineers at all levels
Super-intuitive platform that unifies communication, motion & programming
Achieving Motion Precision Faster
Elmo’s new generation EASII software gets machines to peak performance in a
shorter time, making drive setup simpler. It puts powerful sophisticated software
tools at the user’s fingertips. EASII is a new quick-tuning wizard that streamlines
machine preparation and activates drive motion in a matter of minutes. Even
newcomers use EASII’s advanced features to achieve fine-tuned motion precision
quickly. Experienced users benefit from the widest range of precision control and
diagnostics tools available today.
The Microsoft® Windows® platform simplifies complex motion environments by
integrating all of the activities in one environment:
Drive level configuration, setup and tuning
Servo performance analysis and optimization
Field bus network configuration, analysis and management
Multi-axis motion control organization and sequencing
Testing, monitoring, recording and troubleshooting
Key Strength and Synchronization in a Motion
In the course of developing and running a motion control solution, a user performs
multiple exercises. The motion controller provides real-time synchronization for
any system tasks even the most demanding ones. Single or multi-axis equipment
preforms to the highest operating levels. Inside each Gold Maestro motion
controller, Elmo delivers years of dedicated motion control engineering and
applications experience. Elmo’s products give the industry’s most advanced
algorithms, distributed network intelligence, and proven machine flexibility.
The Gold Maestro advanced controller’s key strength is the integration of all
physical, numerical and logical processes required in complex machine motion.
The more intelligently it interacts with the dynamic array of mechanical commands
and real-time information, the higher the performance results.
The Gold Maestro adheres to EtherCAT and CANopen networking standards,
enabling precise, multi-axis control with cost-effective integration. It enables fast
implementations using standard programming environments like IEC 61131-3,
PLCopen, .NET and Win32 C++.
Elmo’s standalone networked motion controllers, bring your single and multi-axis
equipment to the highest level of performance it can achieve, today and
