C&M – IDE: Intro

The C&M Integrated Development Environment (IDE) provides the user with a programming environment for a range of applications: motion, PLC machine control, G-code file handling for CNC apps, process control, and robotics. The IDE consists of applications to graphically create/edit Function Block Diagram (FBD) based logic schematics and HMI screens, debug application code, organize and archive application code, merge and compare code as well as automating the build/compile status.

    Where do we start?

    • HMI Requirements
    • Motion Requirements
    • The HMI represents the User Interface Controls
    • The FBD represents the motion and logic behavior
    • Users may want to start with either end
    • Drives still size like any other application, with CANopen or EtherCAT as the fieldbus
