Looping More than 256 Times

Post by om_tech_support_CF » Thu Jan 16, 2020 8:58 am

Q: I have an EZS actuator that I need to loop 7000 times from a home location to the full stroke, then slowly return back home after the loop cycle is complete. How can I do this?

A: Below you can see example parameters that need to be set in order to complete this loop function.
1. Change your operation type to : Absolute
2. Set your desired positions
3. Set your speed
4. Link the first two operations: Automatic Link (we do not want the re-home linked, we want it to home after the loop is complete)
5. Change the Next Data Number for your second operation to : 2 (this will run the Re-home after the loop is complete)

The standard loop setting on the operation data tab only allows you to set a loop up to 256. In order to set a loop larger than this, you need to the Extended Operation Data Setting Tab. For this parameter you will need to change rows 5, 6, & 7.

Row 5 sets the first data number.
Row 6 sets the last data number.
Row 7 sets the desired loop, in this case it is 7000.
