Even though not for everyone I include this tip because makes a good example of sequencing with a mixed bag of sequence and analog inputs signals. The original Sumitomo Oscillograph Interface’s days are numbered: Sumitomo is working on getting the eDART REDI kit up and running so as to have a standard interface with “hard” sequence signals. Nevertheless there are a number of them out there. So here’s the deal.
The original Oscillograph interface gives us a fixed set of outputs that hook to the eDART with the following names:
Only the first one is an on / off signal that goes into the ID-7 sequence module. The others are all 0 – 10 V signals. The “sequencer function” takes care of turning this stew into Machine Sequence signals as follows.
Here is a graph to help illustrate this.
