General Monitoring
Motion Command Window
Control Word The MC software’s control word can be
directly written from the PC. For taking over the PC control the
left box (Enable Manual Override) must be selected. The state of
each flag can be set with the right box (Override Value). If other
flags have to be altered, the override mask must be configured in
the parameter tree under \Parameters\Motion Control SW\State
Machine Setup\Control Word\Ctrl Word Parameter Force Mask.
Status Word The status word shows the actual state of the
controller’s MC software status word. It is update automatically.

General Monitoring This window displays actual motor and
controller information
Motion Command Interface The MC software’s motion
command interface can be directly accessed over this window.
When enabled (Enable Manual Override switch must be set), MC
commands can be selected, parameterized and sent to the
controller. Because the motion command interface is, independent
of the interface running on the controller, the same, the commands
can be exactly tested before programming them in the PLC.

2.9
Command Table
The controller supports the command table (CT) functionality, which
means a set of up to 255 motion commands can be stored in this table.
An example of is shown in the following picture:
A big variety of commands can be set in this tables, such as motion
commands, conditions, sequence directives, parameter access, …
This makes the CT to very powerful functional unit. The CT entries
can be accessed (executed) via digital inputs (on X6) or via interface
software.
The CT tool has the following editing elements:
Entry ID indicates the CT entry, which is being edited.
Entry Name is a descriptive string of max. 16 characters
Motion Command Category the available commands are
fitted into groups for keeping a better overview
Motion Command Type specifies the command to be
executed in this entry.
Auto execute new command on next cycle when selected, on
the next cycle the entry specified under “ID of Sequenced Entry”
will be executed. This gives the possibility of defining cycles,
simple logical sequences.
ID of Sequenced Entry defines the CT entry executed on the
next cycle when “Auto execute new command on next cycle” is
activated.
Apply writes the edited values into the entry.
Upload from Controller reads and displays the entire
command table from the controller.
Download to Controller writes the (on the PC) edited table to
the controller.
An application example of the CT can be found in the motion control
software user manual (Usermanual_MotionCtrlSW_E1100.pdf).

2.10 Access Codes
On the controller, special features or customer specific applications
can be protected by a software key. This means, a key must be
activated by an access code, which is controller specific (pinned to the
serial number). Under Controller\Set Access Code\ the following
window will open:
A maximum of four keys can be set on the controller. Under Active
Keys all valid installed keys are listed (key value and access code).
A new key can be set by selecting the key name and defining the value
and access code. With the write button, the key and access code are
written to the controller. As soon as the controller has rebooted (click
the Activate button) the new key will be active, if the access code fits.
Please note: Access codes are controller specific. They cannot be
copied from one controller to another.

Pin12: SVE (if present)
RS232 to PC (X5)
Pin2: RS232TX
Pin3: RS232RX
Pin5: GND
X1 Motor Supply, use 48..72 VDC between (PWR+ and
PGND).
X2 Motor Phases: if this connector is not present, connect the
motor on X3 only.
X3 Motor signals: if motor has a DSUB-9 connector, connect
it directly, otherwise use an adapter to DSUB-9 or wire the phase
lines to X2.
X4 For a commissioning with the PC it is necessary to wire
only the Pin1 (GND), Pin2 (+24VDC) and, if present, Pin12 save
voltage enable (SVE, +24VDC).
X5 RS232: The cable between the LinMot controller and PC
must be DSUB-9 F/F, 1:1 (X modem). If the PC has no COM port
available, please use the USB to RS232 converter (LinMot article
number 0150-3110).

Motor Wizard
As no motor is defined, the next step is to start the motor setup wizard.
Press the button
and the following window will appear:
As we want to configure a LinMot Motor we choose “LinMot Linear
Motors” and press Open.
Select the actuator type you have wired to the controller, then press
Open.
The following steps will show forms including drawings and
descriptive texts.
The first step is to define the stator and slider.

Page 17/35
LinMot Talk 1100
The derived settings show information about the complete motor type,
article numbers and the most important technical data.
The next step is to choose the flange for the defining the cooling
capability.

NTI AG / LinMot
LinMot Talk 1100
Longer extension cables will have an effect to the motor’s phase
resistance. In step 3 can be defined 2 cable segments.
The next hardware setup step is to define a external position sensor
system (if present). There can be chosen between none, incremental
AB(Z) and analog sine/cosine 1 Vpp.

LinMot Talk 1100
With the next and last step the position controller’s parameters will be
set up:
It is recommendable to start with the default soft settings, because the
parameters can be changed any time later on (by restarting the motor
wizard or by setting in the parameter tree directly).
The Noise Filter option is to reduce the noise from the position
feedback sensor at standstill.
Press finish, all wizard settings will now be written to the controller.

The next step is to define the homing procedure.
The most frequently used homing mode is “Mechanical Stop Negative
Search”. In this case the slider will move with the notch towards the
stator’s front end (where no cable is).
Other modes support homing on home switches, limit switches,
indexer inputs or some combinations of those.

NTI AG / LinMot
LinMot Talk 1100
Step 8 is to define the slider home position. This is for the motor and
controller the most important value. It defines at the home position,
where the slider is positioned relative to the stator. This defines how
far the motor in each direction is able to move.

With the last wizard step the user’s coordinate system can be defined.
At the end press finish. If the firmware on the controller is still
running, an appropriate message will be shown.
The motor wizard can be run several times, e.g. to setup an external
sensor, to change the load setup or to change the motor type. We
rerunning it, at the end will be shown a list of parameters which will
be changed.

3.5
Continuous Curve Mode
To get running the motor for the first time, the easiest way is to define
a curve which will be run continuously. The controller is set to
continuous curve mode by selecting “Continuous Curve” under
\Motion Control SW\Motion Interface\Run Mode Settings\RunMode
Selection\ in the parameter tree.
The second parameter to be set is to define which curve has to be run.
Set the parameter “Curve ID” to 1 under \Motion Control SW\Motion
Interface\Time Curve Settings\.
Before running the curve, it is advisable to define the curve we want
to run.

LinMot Talk 1100
3.6
Defining Curves
Curves can be easily defined with the curve wizard. For this example
we will define two sine curve forms over a stroke of 50mm out and in
with different speeds, which will be joined together.
Now, step by step: Open the curve tool by clicking the “Show Curves”
button
in the tool button bar. Then press the “New Curve” button
to start the curve wizard.
As we want to define a curve in position vs. time mode we can keep
the default selection and press the next button.
In this mask, we will set the curve ID to 2 (we will have the merged
curve with ID 1 at the end) and as name we set e.g. “SineOut”. The
end point is placed at 50mm. With “Next” the wizard will show some
curve data:
Page 26/35
User manual LinMot-Talk 1100 / 21/06/2006
NTI AG / LinMot
LinMot Talk 1100
The next and last mask proposes a number curve setpoints. It is
advisable to accept this proposal.
With “Finish” the first curve is defined. The curve will be displayed as
follows:
We will now define curve going back. So we start the curve wizard
again and define under curve settings the following:
NTI AG
User manual LinMot-Talk 1100 / 21/06/2006
Page 27/35
LinMot Talk 1100
Set curve ID to 3, Curve Name to “SineIn”, Curve Length to 500ms,
Start Point to 50mm and End Point to 0mm. Click twice “Next” and
then “Finish”.
Now we have defined the two curve segments and will join them
together. Select the two curves
then press the “Join Curves” button
the joined curve appears:
Page 28/35
User manual LinMot-Talk 1100 / 21/06/2006
. The curve settings mask for
NTI AG / LinMot
LinMot Talk 1100
We will set the curve name to “SineOutIn” and make sure the curve
ID is 1.
The curve length is proposes as the sum of the curve segment times.
Press “Next” and “Finish”. The curve for the continuous curve mode
is now defined and has, according to the parameter settings, the curve
ID 1. As we want to download the curves to the controller we select
all the curves in the edit window an move them to the download
window.
When double click the “SineOutIn” Curve the joined curve is shown:
Now the curves must be downloaded to the controller. Therefore press
the “Show Curves” button
and then the “Download Curves into
Controller” button
. Then a warning comes up which has to be
confirmed and the progress window will display the actions taken to
download the curves.

3.7
Control Status
As we have defined now all parameters and curves, we will let the
motor running. For this time, we will take over the interface control
from the PC. So we are interface-independent.
Switch to the control panel with the button
, then press the start
button
(starting the controller’s firmware) and wait until the
control status panel is updated and looks the following:
Now we will fetch the control over the “Switch On” and the “Home”
flag.
Now turn off and turn on again the “Switch On” flag, this is because
of the auto start prevention. At this time, the motor will be powered
Page 30/35

NTI AG / LinMot
LinMot Talk 1100
and position controlled at the actual position. Set the “Home” flag and
the motor will initialize against the inner hard stop.
When the motor stands still, clear the “Home” flag and the motor will
run the curve continuously.
Detailed information about the MC software’s state diagram can be
found in the MC software manual.
3.8
Oscilloscope
The oscilloscope is a very useful tool for tuning the motor. The
LinMot Talk 1100 software has defined a default oscilloscope, which
samples the actual position, demand position, position difference and
demand current. When clicking on the “Show Oscilloscope” button
, the focus will be set to the default oscilloscope. We could start
the oscilloscope now with the start button
, but it is recommended
to set the recording time about 2 seconds (one curve cycle is 1.5 s).
We will switch to the oscilloscope settings with
. The recorded data
Then press Ok and start the oscilloscope with
on will be read out from the controller and displayed, which will look
somehow like the following.
Possibly it is necessary to press button

(fit view).
Page 31/35
LinMot Talk 1100
Tuning the system would be started at this point. One possibility is by
restarting the Motor Wizard and changing the load or control
parameter, another one is to change the parameters directly in the
parameter tree.

Continuous Two Point Mode
The easiest way run the motor continuously, is to set the VAI 2 Pos
Continuous mode. In this mode the motor moves between the two
positions Trig Fall and Trig Rise. The time the motor waits at the two
positions is defined under “VAI 2 Pos Cont Settings”.
The minimal settings for this mode are shown next. First the mode has
to be set:
And then the positions have to be set under “Trig Fall
Config\Position” and “Trig Rise Config\Position”:

This is all we have to configure. The speed, acceleration and
deceleration can also be defined at this place in the parameter tree.
The motor can now be started the same way as described under 3.7
Control Status.
4 Trouble shooting
4.1
Set all Parmeters to Default
All parameters on the controller can be set to their default values
without the use of the LinMot Talk1100. This can be done according
these steps:
1. Power off the controller
2. Set the two ID switches to $FF
3. Power on the controller, the ERROR and WARN LEDs will flick
alternately.
4. Set the two ID switches to $00
5. Wait until the WARN and EN LEDs will flash together.
6. Power off and on again.
4.2
Bootstrap OS
In case of $B2 errors, which mean a communication timeout, no
rebooting and resetting the parameters will not help, there is the option
of bootstrapping the operating system. This can be done according
these steps:
1. Close the LinMot Talk1100 software.
2. Power On the controller
3. Press with a spiky object into the small hole besides the one
marked with “Reset”. The controller’s LEDs will all be off except for
the green one.
4. Start the LinMot Talk1100 software.
5. Press the Install Firmware button.
6. Select the file under \Firmware\OS\BootStrapOS\BootOS3.sct and
follow the instructions.
After this procedure, the firmware can be installed as described unter
3.2 Firmware Download.
4.3
Interface does not run
If the interface software (DeviceNet, CANopen, Profibus, LinRS)
does not communicate there may be several reasons:
Specific Interface Software not installed
Switch S3 “Interface” on controller’s bottom side must be set
to “On”. (In case of LinRS, this switch must be set to off when
configuring over RS232, and set to on when running the
LinRS interface).
Paramter with UPID 2008h set to disable.
Baud Rate and Node ID selection not correctly set (Parameters
and/or ID switches on controller’s front).
