Store this manual in a safe place so that it can be read whenever necessary. Always forward it to the end user.
[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS]
WARNING
● Make sure to set up the following safety circuits outside the PLC to ensure safe system operation
even during external power supply problems or PLC failure. Otherwise, malfunctions may cause
serious accidents.
- Most importantly, set up the following: an emergency stop circuit, a protection circuit, an interlock
circuit for opposite movements (such as forward vs. reverse rotation), and an interlock circuit to
prevent damage to the equipment at the upper and lower positioning limits.
- Note that when the CPU module detects an error, such as a watchdog timer error, during selfdiagnosis, all outputs are turned off. Also, when an error that cannot be detected by the CPU
module occurs in an input/output control block, output control may be disabled. External circuits
and mechanisms should be designed to ensure safe machine operation in such a case.
- Note that the output current of the 24 V DC service power supply varies depending on the model
and the absence/presence of extension modules. If an overload occurs, the voltage automatically
drops, inputs in the PLC are disabled, and all outputs are turned off. External circuits and
mechanisms should be designed to ensure safe machine operation in such a case.
- Note that when an error occurs in a relay, triac or transistor of an output circuit, the output might
stay on or off. For output signals that may lead to serious accidents, external circuits and
mechanisms should be designed to ensure safe machine operation.
● Construct an interlock circuit in the program to ensure safe operation for the whole system when
executing control (for data change) of the PLC in operation.
Read the manual thoroughly and ensure complete safety before executing other controls (for program
change, parameter change, forced output and operation status change) of the PLC in operation.
Otherwise, the machine may be damaged and accidents may occur due to erroneous operations.
● In an output circuit, when a load current exceeding the current rating or an overcurrent caused by a
load short-circuit flows for a long time, it may cause smoke and fire. To prevent this, configure an
external safety circuit, such as a fuse.
● For the operating status of each station after a communication failure of the network, refer to relevant
manuals for the network. Incorrect output or malfunction may result in an accident.

[DESIGN PRECAUTIONS]
CAUTION
● When an inductive load such as a lamp, heater, or solenoid valve is controlled, a large current
(approximately ten times greater than normal) may flow when the output is turned from off to on. Take
proper measures so that the flowing current does not exceed the value corresponding to the
maximum load specification of the resistance load.
● After the CPU module is powered on or is reset, the time taken to enter the RUN status varies
depending on the system configuration, parameter settings, and/or program size.
Design circuits so that the entire system will always operate safely, regardless of this variation in time.
● Simultaneously turn on and off the power supplies of the CPU module and extension modules.
● If a long-time power failure or an abnormal voltage drop occurs, the PLC stops, and output is turned
off. When the power supply is restored, it will automatically restart (when the RUN/STOP/RESET
switch is on RUN).

OUTLINE OF SYNCHRONOUS CONTROL
The outline, specifications and the operation method of synchronous control using the Simple Motion module are explained in
this chapter.
This chapter helps to understand what can be done using the positioning system and which procedure to use for a specific
purpose.
1.1
Outline of Synchronous Control
"Synchronous control" can be achieved using software instead of controlling mechanically with gear, shaft, speed change
gear or cam, etc.
"Synchronous control" synchronizes movement with the input axis (servo input axis or synchronous encoder axis), by setting
"the parameters for synchronous control" and starting synchronous control on each output axis.

Precautions
• Mechanical elements such as limit switches are considered as already installed.
• Parameter settings for positioning control apply for all axes with the Simple Motion module.
• Be sure to execute the home position return when the home position return request flag is ON.
Starting/ending for synchronous control
Set the parameters for synchronous control for each output axis to start synchronous control.
The status changes to synchronous control after the parameters are analyzed at the start of synchronous control, and the
output axes synchronize with input axis operations.

Starting method for synchronous control
Synchronous control can be started by turning the target axis bit from OFF to ON in "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start" after
setting the parameters for synchronous control.
"5: Analyzing" is set in "[Md.26] Axis operation status" at the synchronous control start, and the parameters for synchronous
control are analyzed. The "[Md.141] BUSY signal (Target axis bit)" turns ON after completion of analysis, and "15:
Synchronous control" is set in "[Md.26] Axis operation status".
Start the input axis operation after confirming that "15: Synchronous control" is set in "[Md.26] Axis operation status".
Ending method for synchronous control
Synchronous control can be ended by turning the target axis bit from ON to OFF in "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start" after
the input axis operation is stopped.
The "[Md.141] BUSY signal (Target axis bit)" turns OFF at the synchronous control end, and "0: Standby" is set in "[Md.26]
Axis operation status" at the output axis stop.
Synchronous control can also be ended by turning the target axis bit from ON to OFF in "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start"
during the input axis operation. However, it is recommended to end after stopping the input axis operation since the output
axis stops immediately.
Refer to the following for the stop operation of output axis at the synchronous control end.

• If bit for multiple axes are turned ON simultaneously in "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start", control is not
started simultaneously since the analysis is processed for each axis in numerical order. When the multiple
axes must be started simultaneously, start the input axis operation after confirming that all axes are
configured for the synchronous control.
• If the input axis operates during the analysis at the synchronous control start, the movement amount of the
input axis is reflected immediately after the synchronous control start. The output axis might suddenly
accelerate depending on the movement amount of the input axis. Start the input axis operation after
confirming that are configured for synchronous control.
• The analysis process for synchronous control start might take time depending on the parameter setting for
synchronous control. (Up to about 14 ms: When "0: Cam axis current value per cycle restoration" is set in
"[Pr.462] Cam axis position restoration object" and the cam (cam resolution: 16384) is searched) Set "1:
Cam reference position restoration" or "2: Cam axis feed current value restoration" in "[Pr.462] Cam axis
position restoration object" to start synchronous control at high speed.
• When the synchronous control parameter is set to the value outside the setting range, the synchronous
control does not start, and the input axis error No. is stored in the monitor data.

Stop operation of output axis
If the following causes occur in stopping the output axis during synchronous control, synchronous control is completed after
stops processing for the output axis ("[Md.141] BUSY signal" is OFF, "[Md.26] Axis operation status" is standby).
Synchronous alignment must be executed for the output axis to restart the synchronous control. (Page 87 Output Axis

Deceleration stop
The output axis stops with deceleration according to the setting in "[Pr.37] Stop group 1 sudden stop selection" to "[Pr.39] Stop
group 3 sudden stop selection". The deceleration time is set in "[Pr.446] Synchronous control deceleration time" for
deceleration stop, and in "[Pr.36] Sudden stop deceleration time" for sudden stop. The slope of deceleration is as follows.
Slope of deceleration = "[Pr.8] Sped limit value" /
Deceleration time
(Sudden stop deceleration time)
The cam axis current value per cycle is not updated, and only the feed current value is updated, since the deceleration stop
begins. Therefore, the path of the feed current value is drawn regardless the cam operation with deceleration stop.
The input axis must be stopped when the output axis is stop synchronizing with the input axis.

Servo Input Axis
Overview of servo input axis
The servo input axis is used to drive the input axis based on the position of the servomotor that is being controlled by the
Simple Motion module.
The status of a servo input axis can also be monitored even before the synchronous control start since the setting of a servo
input axis is valid after the system's power supply ON.
The status of a servo input axis can be monitored after the system’s power supply ON.

Setting method for synchronous encoder
Incremental synchronous encoder
■Setting method
2
Connect the synchronous encoder to the "Manual pulse generator/Incremental synchronous encoder input" of the Simple
Motion module.
Set the input method for the incremental synchronous encoder signal using the following parameters. (It may be common to
use the same set up for the manual pulse generator input.)
• "[Pr.24] Manual pulse generator/Incremental synchronous encoder input selection"
• "[Pr.89] Manual pulse generator/Incremental synchronous encoder input type selection"
• "[Pr.151] Manual pulse generator/Incremental synchronous encoder input logic selection"
The synchronous encoder axis operates completely independently with the manual pulse generator operation.
The parameter and control data for the manual pulse generator operation except the 3 parameters listed
above has not influence on control of synchronous encoder axis. Therefore, they can also be controlled
simultaneously by common input pulses.
When the synchronous encoder axis connection is valid after the system's power supply is ON, it will be "Synchronous
encoder axis current value = 0", "Synchronous encoder axis current value per cycle = 0" and "Counter enabling status".

(Connectable servo amplifier: axis 1 to axis 4)" in "[Pr.320]
Synchronous encoder axis type".
Encoder type setting (Absolute/
Incremental)
Set "ABS" or "INC" from the "External synchronous encoder
input" list of the amplifier setting dialog.
(The amplifier setting dialog can be opened from the system
structure screen in the system setting.)
Set the servo parameter "Scale measurement mode
selection (PA22)" according to the setting below.
0_ _ _H: Disabled
1_ _ _H: Used in absolute position detection system
2_ _ _H: Used in incremental system
When "1_ _ _H" is set in the servo parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)", the synchronous encoder axis
current value and the synchronous encoder axis current value per cycle are restored after the servo amplifier axis is
connected. Therefore, connection becomes valid, and will be on the counter enabling status.
When "2_ _ _H" is set in the servo parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)", "0" is set to the initial value of the
synchronous encoder axis current value and the synchronous encoder axis current value per cycle after the servo amplifier
axis is connected. Therefore, connection becomes valid, and will be on the counter enabling status.
If the corresponding servo amplifier axis is not connected, the connection of the synchronous encoder axis will be invalid.
■Point of the setting method
• "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)" is set to the servo amplifier set by "ABS" or "INC" from the "External
synchronous encoder input" list of the amplifier setting dialog using the Simple Motion Module Setting Tool.
• When the servo parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)" is changed, it is required to switch the power of
servo amplifier off once after the parameter is transferred to the servo amplifier, and then switch it on again.
• If the servo amplifier set by the servo parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)" does not support the "Scale
measurement mode", "AL.37" (parameter error) will occur in the servo amplifier. Refer to the SSCNET/H Interface AC
Servo MR-J4-_B(-RJ) MR-J4-_B4(-RJ) MR-J4-_B1(-RJ) Servo Amplifier Instruction Manual for details of the servo
parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)".
• The synchronous encoder via servo amplifier can be controlled up to 4. However, there is no restriction for the number of
connections. Therefore, the error check is not executed even when the external synchronous encoders are set more than 4
on the system setting screen using the Simple Motion Module Setting Tool.
• The following information of the synchronous encoder via servo amplifier can be output with the optional data monitor. The
setting details of the optional data monitor for the synchronous encoder information are shown below.

• A serial absolute synchronous encoder Q171ENC-W8 can be used in an incremental system by setting "2_ _ _H" in the
servo parameter "Scale measurement mode selection (PA22)" even if the battery of the servo amplifier is dismounted.

Set the parameters as below.
• Set "101: Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier (servo amplifier axis 3)" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type" of
synchronous encoder axis 1.
• Set "32: MR-J4-_B" in "[Pr.100] Servo series" of the axis to connect Q171ENC-W8.
• Set "ABS" or "INC" from the "External synchronous encoder input" list of the amplifier setting dialog using the Simple
Motion Module Setting Tool. (To set using the program, set "1_ _ _H" or "2_ _ _H" in the servo parameter "Scale
measurement mode selection (PA22)".)
• Set "1_ _ _H" in the servo parameter "Function selection C-8 (PC26)".
■Restrictions
• The servo amplifier axis selected as "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier" in"[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type"
does not operate in the fully closed control mode even though "_ _1_H" is set in the servo parameter "Operation mode
selection (PA01)".
• The information about the synchronous encoder is output to "[Md.112] Optional data monitor output 4" of the servo amplifier
axis selected as "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type", and "[Pr.94]
Optional data monitor: Data type setting 4" is ignored. (Set the total points to be within 3 words for the optional data
monitor. Otherwise, the monitor setting is ignored.)
• When the servo alarms about the serial absolute synchronous encoder connection occur in the servo amplifier axis
selected as "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type", the status becomes
servo OFF. "AL.25" (Absolute position erased), "AL.70" (Load-side encoder initial communication error 1), or "AL.71" (Loadside encoder normal communication error 1) occurs in the servo amplifier.
• The error "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier invalid error" (error code: 1BAAH) occurs in the following cases.
• Other than "32: MR-J4-_B" is set in "[Pr.100] Servo series" of the axis No. selected as "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous
encoder axis type".
• The servo amplifier axis which is not set in the system setting is set to the servo amplifier axis No. to connect to "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier".
• The servo axis, which "Invalid" is set to from the "External synchronous encoder input" list of the amplifier setting dialog using the Simple Motion Module
Setting Tool, is set to the servo amplifier axis No. to connect to "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier".
• The encoder other than Q171ENC-W8 is connected to the servo amplifier axis selected as "Synchronous encoder via servo amplifier" in "[Pr.320]
Synchronous encoder axis type".

Synchronous encoder via CPU
■Setting method
Used to operate a gray code encoder that is connected to the input part of the CPU module or the extension input module as
a synchronous encoder axis.
By setting "201: Synchronous encoder via CPU" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type", the synchronous encoder is
controlled by the encoder value which is the input value of "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU".
The encoder value can be used as a cycle counter within the range from 0 to (Resolution of synchronous encoder via CPU 1).
Connection is invalid just after the system's power supply is ON. When "1" is set in "[Cd.324] Connection command of
synchronous encoder via CPU", the synchronous encoder axis current value and the synchronous encoder axis current value
per cycle are restored based on "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU". Therefore, connection becomes
valid, and will be on the counter enabling status.
The synchronous encoder axis is controlled based on the amount of change of "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder
via CPU" while it is connecting.
■Setting example
The following shows an example for setting a synchronous encoder via CPU as synchronous encoder axis 4 of the Simple
Motion module. (Resolution of the gray code encoder: 4096 pulses/rev)
Simple Motion
module
Gray code encoder
Synchronous
encoder axis 4
Axis 1

Axis 3
Set "201: Synchronous encoder via CPU" in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type" of synchronous encoder axis 4.
Set "4096" in "[Pr.329] Resolution of synchronous encoder via CPU" of synchronous encoder axis 4.
Read the encoder value of the gray code encoder with a program, and update "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder
via CPU" of the synchronous encoder axis 4 at every time.
■Restrictions
• "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU" is taken every operation cycle, but it is asynchronous with the
scan time of the CPU module. Therefore, speed fluctuation of the synchronous encoder axis becomes larger if the refresh
cycle of "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU" becomes long. Update "[Cd.325] Input value for
synchronous encoder via CPU" in a cycle less than the operation cycle or use smooth speed fluctuation with the smoothing
function.
• The synchronous encoder current value that is restored for the synchronous encoder connection gets restored into a
converted value from the following range based on the synchronous encoder movement amount on disconnection.
Setting value of "[Pr.329]

encoder via CPU"

[Cd.322] Synchronous encoder axis current value setting address
Set a new current value in synchronous encoder axis position units to apply to the current value change for the synchronous
encoder axis (Page 31 Synchronous encoder axis position units).
[Cd.323] Synchronous encoder axis error reset
If set to "1", "[Md.326] Synchronous encoder axis error No." and "[Md.327] Synchronous encoder axis warning No." are set to
0 and then "b4: Error detection flag" and "b5: Warning detection flag" of "[Md.325] Synchronous encoder axis status" are
turned OFF. A synchronous encoder connection becomes valid if there is no error.
The Simple Motion module resets the value to "0" automatically after completion of the error reset.
However, the setting of the synchronous encoder axis will not be valid even if the error is reset for the setting error of the
synchronous encoder axis parameter. Reconfigure the parameter and turn the power supply ON again.
[Cd.324] Connection command of synchronous encoder via CPU
Use this data when "201: Synchronous encoder via CPU" is set in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type".
If set to"1", the synchronous encoder axis is connected. Once connected, the synchronous encoder current value is restored
based on the "[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU".
If set to "0", the synchronous encoder axis is disconnected.
[Cd.325] Input value for synchronous encoder via CPU
Use this data when "201: Synchronous encoder via CPU" is set in "[Pr.320] Synchronous encoder axis type".
Set a value to be used every time as the input value for the synchronous encoder in encoder pulse units.
If 1 or more is set in "[Pr.329] Resolution of synchronous encoder via CPU", it is processed as a cycle counter within the range

Control Details for Cam Function
The output axis for synchronous control is operated with a cam.
The following operations can be performed with cam functions.
• Two-way operation: Reciprocating operation with a constant cam strokes range.
• Feed operation: Cam reference position is updated every cycle.
• Linear operation: Linear operation (cam No.0) in the cycle as the stroke ratio is 100%.
The output axis is controlled by a value (feed current value), which is converted from the input value (cam axis current value
per cycle) by cam data.

Cam auto-generation function
The cam auto-generation function is used to generate cam data automatically for specific purposes based on parameter
settings.
With this function, cam data is generated in the cam open area.
It is possible to generate up to 1 Mbyte including the regular cam data. (Example: 64 cam data (with the stroke ratio format,
resolution is 4096) can be automatically generated.)
The processing time of cam auto-generation takes longer if the data point is larger. Also, the real processing time changes by
status of axis start etc.

SYNCHRONOUS CONTROL
The parameters and monitor data for synchronous control such as "Main shaft module", "Speed change gear module", and
"Output axis module" are explained in this chapter.
Configure the required settings according to the control and application requirements for each module.
4.1
Main Shaft Module
Overview of main shaft module
For the main shaft module, the input value is generated as a composite value from two input axes (the main and sub input
axis) through the composite main shaft gear. The composite input value can be converted by the main shaft gear that provides
the deceleration ratio and the rotation direction for the machine system, etc.
Refer to the followings for details on setting for the main shaft module.

Details
0: No input
The input value from the input axis is calculated as 0.
1: Input+
The input value from the input axis is calculated as it is.
2: Input-
The input value from the input axis is calculated with its opposite sign.
Operation assumes "0: No input" if the value is set out of the range from 0 to 2.
The composite method for the composite main shaft gear can be changed during synchronous control. It is
used as a clutch to switch input values between the main and the sub input axes.
[Pr.403] Main shaft gear: Numerator, [Pr.404] Main shaft gear: Denominator
Set the numerator and the denominator for the main shaft gear to convert the input value. The input value is converted as
follows.
Input value after conversion = Input value before conversion ×
[Pr.403] Main shaft gear: Numerator
[Pr.404] Main shaft gear: Denominator
The input value direction can be reversed by setting a negative value in the numerator of the main shaft gear.
Set the denominator of the main shaft gear to a value within the range from 1 to 2147483647.
Ex.
Convert the cam axis per cycle to be controlled in intervals of 0.1 mm (0.00394 inch). The cam axis synchronizes with a
conveyer that moves 100 mm (3.937 inch) for every (360.00000 degree) of the main shaft.

Setting value
Details
0: No clutch (Direct coupled
operation)
Execute direct coupled operation without clutch control.
1: Clutch command ON/OFF
The clutch is turned ON/OFF by the operation of "[Cd.400] Main shaft clutch command" ON/OFF. (Setting in the OFF
control mode are not applicable in the clutch command ON/OFF mode.)
2: Clutch command leading edge
The clutch is turned ON when "[Cd.400] Main shaft clutch command" passes the leading edge (from OFF to ON).
3: Clutch command trailing edge
The clutch is turned ON when "[Cd.400] Main shaft clutch command" passes the trailing edge (from ON to OFF).
4: Address mode
The clutch is turned ON when the reference address (the current value after composite main shaft gear or the current
value per cycle after main shaft gear) reaches "[Pr.407] Main shaft clutch ON address".
The movement amount after passing through the ON address is calculated as the output movement amount of the clutch
based on the reference address passing through, thereby controlling the clutch with an accurate movement amount.
5: High speed input request
The clutch is turned ON when the high speed input request [DI] turns ON.
Other clutch parameters are not applicable during direct coupled operation by setting "0: No clutch". "[Cd.402]
Main shaft clutch forced OFF command" and the change of the clutch control setting are ignored during direct
coupled operation.

1: One-shot OFF
The clutch is turned OFF after moving the distance "[Pr.410] Movement amount before main shaft clutch OFF" (Oneshot operation) after the clutch command turns ON.
If "[Pr.410] Movement amount before main shaft clutch OFF" is 0, "[Md.420] Main shaft clutch ON/OFF status" does not
turn ON in order to turn back OFF immediately.
2: Clutch command leading edge
The clutch is turned OFF when "[Cd.400] Main shaft clutch command" passes the leading edge (from OFF to ON).
3: Clutch command trailing edge
The clutch is turned OFF when "[Cd.400] Main shaft clutch command" passes the trailing edge (from ON to OFF).
4: Address mode
The clutch is turned OFF when the reference address (the current value after composite main shaft gear or the current
value per cycle after main shaft gear) reaches "[Pr.409] Main shaft clutch OFF address".
The movement amount before passing through the OFF address is calculated as the output movement amount of the
clutch based on the reference address passing through, thereby controlling the clutch with an accurate movement
amount.

Clutch
Overview of clutch
The clutch is used to transmit/disengage command pulses from the main/auxiliary shaft input side to the output axis module
through turning the clutch ON/OFF, which controls the operation/stop of the servomotor.
A clutch can be configured for the main and auxiliary shafts.
Control method for clutch
Set the ON and OFF control methods separately in "[Pr.405] Main shaft clutch control setting" and "[Pr.422] Auxiliary shaft
clutch control setting".
Although the clutch control setting can be changed during synchronous control, however, the setting "No clutch" (Direct
coupled operation) cannot be selected during synchronous control after already selecting another setting.

When the clutch ON condition and the clutch OFF condition are completed simultaneously within one operation cycle, both
clutch ON and OFF processing are executed within one operation cycle. Therefore, the clutch is from OFF to ON and again to
OFF at the clutch OFF status, and it is from ON to OFF and again to ON at the clutch ON status.
The following shows the operations for the clutch ON/OFF by the setting of the ON control mode and the OFF control mode.

[Pr.438] Cam axis cycle unit setting
Set the command units for the cam axis input per cycle to be used for cam control.
These units are used for setting the cam axis length per cycle and the cam axis current value per cycle.
There is no influence on the control for the parameter for monitor display.
Refer to the following.
Page 87 Overview of output axis module
[Pr.439] Cam axis length per cycle
Set the length per cycle of the cam axis to generate the cam axis current value per cycle.
The unit settings are in the cam axis cycle units (Page 88 Units for the output axis).
Set a value within the range from 1 to 2147483647.
[Pr.440] Cam No.
Set the cam No. for cam control.
Cam No.0 is preset in the Simple Motion module, and it operates as a linear cam for 100% of its stroke ratio along the cam
axis length per cycle.
The cam No. can be changed during synchronous control.
The value set in "[Pr.440] Cam No." is valid when the cam axis current value per cycle passes through the 0th point of cam
data, or is on the 0th point.
[Pr.441] Cam stroke amount
Set the cam stroke amount corresponding to a 100% stroke ratio in output axis position units (Page 88 Units for the
output axis) for cam control using the stroke ratio data format.
The cam stroke amount can be changed during synchronous control.
The value set in "[Pr.441] Cam stroke amount" is valid when the cam axis current value per cycle passes through the 0th point
of cam data, or is on the 0th point.
The setting value is ignored for a cam using the coordinate data format.

Phase Compensation Function
In synchronous control, delays in progresses, etc. cause the phase to deviate at the output axis motor shaft end with respect
to the input axis (servo input axis or synchronous encoder axis). The phase compensation function compensates in this case
so that the phase does not deviate.
Phase compensation can be set for the input and the output axis. It is possible to compensate using the delay time inherent to
the system based on the servo input axis or the synchronous encoder axis on the input axis side. It is also possible to use a
compensation delay time equivalent to the position deviation for each servo amplifier on the output axis side.
Phase compensation on delay time of the input axis
Set delay time inherent to the system in the phase compensation advance time of the input axis ("[Pr.302] Servo input axis
phase compensation advance time", "[Pr.326] Synchronous encoder axis phase compensation advance time").
The delay time inherent to the system is shown below.

Phase compensation of delay time of the output axis
Set delay time equivalent to the position deviation on the servo amplifier in "[Pr.444] Cam axis phase compensation advance
time" for the output axis. The delay time equivalent to position deviation of the servo amplifier is calculated using the following
formula. (When using MR-J3-B, MR-J4-B, and MR-JE-B)
Delay time [s] = 1000000 / Servo parameter "Model loop gain (PB07)"
When the feed forward gain is set, the delay time is set to a smaller value than the value listed above.
The model loop gain will change when the gain adjustment method is auto tuning mode 1 or 2. The model loop gain must not
be changed on the axis executing phase compensation through preventing change with the manual mode or interpolation
mode setting.
Setting example
When axis 1 is synchronized with an incremental synchronous encoder axis, the phase compensation advance time is set as
follows.
(If the operation cycle is as 1.77 [ms] and model loop gain of axis 1 is as 80.)

Cam axis current value per cycle restoration
If "[Pr.462] Cam axis position restoration object" is set to "0: Cam axis current value per cycle restoration" when starting
synchronous control, the cam axis current value per cycle is restored based on the cam reference position and the cam axis
feed current value.
Select the method for the cam reference position to be restored. The feed current value when starting synchronous control is
used as the cam axis feed current value.
The cam axis current value per cycle is restored by searching for the corresponding value from the beginning to the end of the
cam pattern. Set the starting point from where to search the cam pattern in "[Pr.468] Cam axis current value per cycle (Initial

• With two-way cam pattern operation, if the corresponding cam axis current value per cycle is not found, the
error "Cam axis current value per cycle restoration disable" (error code: 1C28H) will occur and synchronous
control will not be started.
• When starting synchronous control, the feed current value may change slightly from its original position at
starting synchronous control. This is due to the readjustment of the position based on the restored cam axis
current value per cycle. This does not result in the position mismatch.
• With a feed operation cam pattern, if the corresponding cam axis current value per cycle is not found on the
first cycle, the cam reference position is changed automatically and the pattern is searched again.
• If the cam resolution is large, search processing may take a long time when starting synchronous control.

If "[Pr.462] Cam axis position restoration object" is set to "1: cam reference position restoration" when starting synchronous
control, the cam reference position is restored based on the cam axis current value per cycle and the cam axis feed current
value.
Select the method for the cam axis current value per cycle to be restored. The feed current value when starting synchronous
control is used as the cam axis feed current value.

The cam axis feed current value moves to its restored value just after starting synchronous control when the
cam axis feed current value to be restored is different from the feed current value at synchronous control start.
If the difference is larger than "In-position width (PA10)" of servo amplifier in pulse command units, the error
"Cam axis feed current value restoration disable" (error code: 1C29H) will occur and synchronous control
cannot be started.
Note that, if the setting value of "In-position width" is large, a rapid operation may occur.
With cam axis feed current value restoration, calculate the cam axis feed current value with the cam position
calculation function (Page 116 Cam Position Calculation Function) or with synchronous control analysis
mode (Page 114 Synchronous Control Analysis Mode) before starting synchronous control. Then start
synchronous control after positioning to the correct cam axis feed current value.

Synchronous Control Analysis Mode
With synchronous control analysis mode, parameters are only analyzed for synchronous control when there is a command to
start synchronous control. This mode is used to confirm the synchronous positions of the output axes in order to align axes
with position control before starting synchronous control.
If the target axis bit is ON in "[Cd.381] Synchronous control analysis mode" when starting synchronous control (turning the
target axis bit from OFF to ON for "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start"), operation enters synchronous control analysis mode.
When the synchronization position analysis is completed, the synchronous control monitor data ([Md.400] to [Md.425]) is
updated, and the target axis bit in "[Cd.380] Synchronous control start" turns OFF.
"[Md.141] BUSY signal" is not turned ON during synchronous control analysis mode.

Method to Restart Synchronous Control
The relationship of the synchronous position for synchronous control is always saved in the Simple Motion module.
Synchronous control can be restarted without returning all axes to their starting points by restoring the synchronized
relationship through the synchronous control initial position parameters (Page 106 Synchronous Control Initial Position
Parameters).
The reference axis used to restart synchronous control is different for each system. The following procedure shows an
example of how to restore synchronized values based on the servo input axis as reference position.
