MUSCLE’s own unique CML (COOL MUSCLE Language) by ASCII without hand shake lets you set and control. You can easily but precisely control a motor by writing simple data as position (P), speed (S), acceleration (A) and etc. Also functions can be easily assigned to CM by parameters by using CML.
You can build the Daisy Chain network with up to 15 axes of CM from one (1) serial port and the motors in the network can be controlled by CML.
* Programs in the Motors that were written by ASCII can be saved and executed by DIOs.
Modbus protocol, developed by Modicon Inc, is a communication protocol for PLC industry. The protocol is also widely used in FA and PA fields because its specifications are open to the public and the protocol structure is simple.
COOL MUSCLE 2 in that RS-232 is implemented can communicate with Modbus devices by only setting simple parameters. There is no extra protocol converter needed.
There are host and slave devices in Modbus communication. One device (the host) can initiate transactions (called queries). The other devices (the slaves) respond by replying the requested data to the host or by taking the action requested in the query. COOL MUSCLE can be programmed as either a host or a slave device.
