Introduction
The LinMot-Talk 6 software is a PC based tool, which helps the user in a comfortable
way installing firmware on the drive, setting up the drive’s configuration, defining and
programming motion profiles, emulating the PLC, watching variables and reading
messages and errors. The LinMot-Talk 6 works with the drive series A1100, B1100,
C1100, E1100, C1200, E1200, E1400 and B8050. It replaces the LinMot-Talk1100
software. For the rest of this document and all other documents, the more general
term “LinMot-Talk” will be used for the Linmot- PC configuration software.
1.1 System Generation (SG)
The LinMot drive families are based on different hardware platforms, which are called
system generations. The abbreviation is “SG”. Whereas differences of hardware of
software functionality exist between the system generations, the documentation is
marked with the “SG” term. The following table gives an overview of which drive
family belongs to which SG:
SG

Family A1100
Family C1100 (GP, DS, EC, PD, PN, SE) (0S/1S)
1.2 UPID (Unique Parameter ID)
All parameters have an assigned identification number, which is called a UPID
(Unique Parameter ID). All parameters are accessed on the drive over this
identification.

LinMot User Manual
1.3 PnP (Plug and Play)
The drive families A1100, C1100, C1200, E1200 and E1400 support the so called
„Plug and Play“ functionality. When a motor is connected to the drive, the motor will
be automatically detected and the parameters will be set accordingly. The drive then
can control the motor without any further configuration procedure. When starting the
motor wizard, the connected motor is already selected and all the further
configuration, such as exact slider, moving mass, friction etc can be set up.
All components (drives and motors) which support the plug and play functionality are
marked on the type label with “PnP”.
The drive startup sequence is the following:
*) All parameters, which are set by the previous PnP motor, will be set to default
values prior to load the new parameters.

3.10 Firmware Download
As the cabling is done correctly now, turn on the drive’s power and start up the
LinMot-Talk software. Before using the drive the first time, the firmware has to be
downloaded. Therefore press install firmware button
to start the wizard. Choose
the file “Firmware_Build20101126.sct” (or similar) and press “Open”. Then the wizard
will start and guide through the installation.
In case of installing the firmware over ETHERNET, the service password is required.
This is for safety reasons. Especially if there are a lot of drives accessible in the
network, it can easily happen to confound them. Thus it is strongly recommended to
set a password. By default no password is set. If the password is unknown, the
parameters can be set to default by hex switches, see 4.1 . Installing the firmware
over ETHERNET is only possible on drives with a separate Config Ethernet (E1200
and E1400). Installation over RT Ethernet is not possible.
According to the drive type, different interfaces and application software can be
selected.
The following tables show the compatibility of drive type, interfaces and applications.

When logged in you will find the following window:
The Object Inspector window can be dragged away or closed. It can be reopened
with F1.
3.12 Scanning CAN Bus
When one or several drives are linked with CAN bus for configuring, it can be very
helpful to scan the CAN bus for linked drives automatically. Thus, it is not necessary
to know all node IDs. Under \File\Scanning (with CANusb) a list of the present drives
will be displayed:
With just one click the LinMot-Talk software will log in to all drives.

3.13 Scanning Ethernet
When one or several drives are linked with Ethernet for configuring, it is helpful to
scan automatically for linked drives. Thus, it is not necessary to know all node IP
addresses. Under \File\Scanning (via Ethernet) first the interface has to be selected
(network link)
With the radio button Group Number could be activated a scan for a special drive
group. The list will only display the drives with the group number, like the number in
the text field. In the drives this number is saved in the parameter with the name Net
Group and the UPID 0078h.
A list of the present drives will be displayed:
With just one click the LinMot-Talk software will log in to all drives. The colored
markings have the following meaning:

Green: The drive is ready to log in.

Grey: You are already logged into this drive.

Red: Another instance is logged into this drive (other user or
other interface).
The default mode for acquiring an IP address is via DHCP. If no servers on the
connected network respond, the drive switches to the Ipv4 Link-Local addressing
scheme (also known as APIPA on Windows systems). This way the drive
automatically assigns itself an address within the range of 169.254.0.1 through
169.254.255.254 (Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0).
Please note that this process can take up to a minute until a valid address is assigned
to the drive this way.

As we want to configure a LinMot Motor we choose “LinMot Linear Motors” and press
Open.
Select the actuator type you have connected to the drive, then press Open. The
following steps will show forms including drawings and descriptive texts. The first step
is to define the stator and slider.

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 defining the cooling capability.

LinMot User Manual
Longer extension cables will have an effect to the motor’s phase resistance. In step
3 can be defined two cable segments.
The next hardware setup step is to define an external position sensor system (if
present). For E1100 drives can be chosen between none, incremental AB(Z) and
analog sine/cosine 1Vpp. For B1100 drives can be chosen between none,
incremental AB(Z) and AB encoder simulation.

With step 5 the feed forward parameters are set up. Depending on the moving mass,
additional load mass, friction and orientation. Under the derived settings the influence
can be watched.
With the next and last step the position drive’s parameters will be set up:
NTI AG / LinMot®
www.LinMot.com
Page 34/51
LinMot User Manual
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).
With the soft parameter setting, PID values will be quite low such as the motor is low
noise and the position is not controlled very stiffly.
The stiff parameter set tends to more noise and more power consumption of the
motor, but the position will be controlled harder.
In both settings, the I Gain is set to zero, which means a steady-state deviation from
the desired position can occur. When using the I Gain, the position controller may
tend to swing.
The Noise Filter option is to reduce the noise from the position feedback sensor at
standstill.
For finding the best set of PID parameters, the system has to be optimized iteratively.
There is no general way of how to optimize the settings, because different goals can
be achieved such as position accuracy, power minimization, noise reduction, …
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®
www.LinMot.com
Page 35/51
LinMot User Manual
Step 8 is to define the slider home position. This is for the motor and drive 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 can move in each direction.
With the last wizard step the user’s coordinate system can be defined.
At the end, press finish. If the firmware on the drive is still running, an appropriate

message will be shown. All parameters will now being written to the drive.
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. When rerunning it, at the end will
be shown a list of parameters, which will be changed.
3.15 Continuous Curve Mode
We want the motor to run a curve cyclically (The easiest, but not so informative way
to run the motor would be the VAI 2 Pos Continuous mode).
The drive 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.
NOTE: For enabling the curve feature on B1100 drives, it is necessary to set an
access key.
NTI AG / LinMot®
www.LinMot.com
Page 37/51
LinMot User Manual
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.
3.16 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.
NTI AG / LinMot®
www.LinMot.com
Page 38/51
LinMot User Manual
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:
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:
NTI AG / LinMot®
www.LinMot.com

We will now define curve going back. So we start the curve wizard again and define
under curve settings the following:
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
appears:
NTI AG / LinMot®
. The curve settings mask for the joined curve
www.LinMot.com

We will set the curve name to “SineOutIn” and make sure the curve ID is 1.
The curve length is proposed as the sum of the curve segment times.
Please consider the maximal number of curves and curve points indicated in chapter
2.6 .
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 drive we select all the curves in the edit window and 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 drive. Therefore press the “Show Curves”
button and then the “Download Curves into Drive” button
.
Then a warning comes up which has to be confirmed and the progress window will
display the actions taken to download the curves.

3.17 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 interfaceindependent. Switch to the control panel with the button
, then press the start
button
(starting the drive’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” flags.
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 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.

3.18 Oscilloscope
The oscilloscope is a very useful tool for tuning the motor. The LinMot-Talk 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
Then press Ok and start the oscilloscope with . The recorded data on will be read
out from the drive and displayed, which will look somehow like the following.
Possibly it is necessary to press button
(fit view).
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.

3.19 Continuous Two Point Mode
The easiest way to 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 3.17 .

Trouble shooting
4.1 Setting all Parameters to Default Values
E1100, E1200, E1400, B8050, MB8050, C1100-GP and C1250
All parameters of the SG3 and SG5 drives can be set to their default values without
the use of the LinMot-Talk. This can be done according these steps:
1. Power off the drive
2. Set the two ID switches to 0xFF
3. Power on the drive, the Error and Warn LEDs will blink alternately at ~4Hz.
4. Set the two ID switches to 0x00
5. Wait until the Warn and EN LEDs will flash together at ~2Hz.
6. Power off and on again.
B1100
On SG4 drives an image of the default parameters will be stored during the software
installation. This image can be reloaded to the operating parameters. The procedure
is the following:
1. Set the parameter with UPID 0x6085 to 0x0001.
2. Power off the drive.
3. Power on the drive.
The value of the parameter with UPID 0x6085 will be automatically cleared to 0x0000.
A1100
All parameters set to their default values without the use of the LinMot-Talk. This can
be done according these steps:
1. Power off the drive
2. Set the DIP switch S5.2 to on
3. Power on the drive, the Error and Warn LEDs will blink alternately at ~4Hz.
4. Set the DIP switch S5.2 to off

4.2 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 S3.4 “Interface” on drive’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).

Parameter with UPID 2008h set to disable.

Baud Rate and Node ID selection not correctly set (Parameters and/or
ID switches on drive’s front).
4.3 Stopping Firmware
When the same link is used for configuration purposes and from the interface (e.g.
RS232 link and LinRS interface) it may not be possible to login with the LinMot-Talk
software. In some cases, it should be possible to log in, e.g. to download new
firmware.
On E1100 drives, the interface switch S3.4 can be set to off and after a power up the
interface software should be deactivated and the configuration link should be free. If
this does not help, or you are working with a B1100 drive, there is a script under File
-> Open -> StopFirmware.sct, which keeps trying to stop the drives firmware while it
is powered on. After a power up, within the first 2 seconds the interface can be
prevented from starting.
