Amplification stage The amplification stage influences the acceleration behaviour of the drive,
for example. The amplification stage should usually be set as specified in
the Drive−Specific Supplement" manual. If the positioning behaviour is
later optimised, only the cushioning stage should be modified.

Cushioning stage The positioning behaviour is determined by the amplification and cushioning
stages. The cushioning stage serves to optimise the approach behaviour
when moving to the end positions.

Drive The term drive" is used in this manual for the linear unit (DGP(I)(L)−...),
cylinder (DNC(I)−...) or rotary drive (DSMI).

I Digital input

With the SPC11, movement is controlled. During commission


ing, the end positions (cylinder end positions or position of
the fixed stops) as well as the desired intermediate positions
are learnt" by the SPC11.

1−4 Festo P.BE−SPC11−SYS−EN en 0404b


1. Summary of components

During operation, the SPC11 controls movement of the move


able mass into the saved end positions and intermediate
positions at the highest possible speed. Shortly before the
learnt" end position or intermediate position is reached, the
moveable mass is braked so that it comes to a standstill.

To keep the moveable mass in the learnt" end position, it is


pressed against the fixed stop with a pressure equal at maxi
mum to the operating pressure.

Advantages
Compared with pneumatic−impact drives with pulse−valve
control, this control procedure permits higher positioning
speeds. Also, the following measures, which would be re
quired for controlling a drive with a pulse valve, are no longer
necessary:

the use of restrictors

the use of limit switches

the use of mechanical end position cushioning


(shock absorbers)

the maintenance of fixed stops.

Compared with pneumatic−impact drives with pulse−valve


control, the SPC11 permits:

higher machine cycle times

less vibration of the system

lower maintenance costs.

Metho
d of
Tasks of the SPC11 The SPC11 takes over the following tasks:

It ascertains characteristic system values of the


connected components

It saves the desired end positions and intermediate


positions

It specifies the end positions and intermediate positions

It compares the nominal and actual positions and controls


positioning by appropriate actuation of the proportional
directional control valve (status control).

Method of operation The SPC11, the valve, the drive and the measuring system
are connected together to form a closed−loop control circuit.
In this closed−loop control circuit, the position of the move
able mass represents the control variable. This control cir
cuit is therefore also called positioning control.

In the following text, the term moveable mass" also refers to


piston, slide and flange shaft.

The following diagram shows the basic layout of a positioning


control circuit with the SPC11.

Fig. 1/2: Positioning control circuit with pneumatic components

The measuring system registers continuously the position of


the moveable mass and transmits this in the form of an elec
tric signal to the SPC11. The SPC11 compares the current
position with the target position (the taught" end positions
Po.1 and Po.2 or the intermediate positions Po.3 and Po.4)
and calculates from this value the positioning signal for the
proportional directional control valve.

The proportional directional control valve controls the drive


by pressurising one cylinder chamber and exhausting the
other. The flow is blocked in the valve slide mid−position.

3. Installation

Compressed air supply (1)


Use only dried, non−lubricated, 5 m filtered compressed
air from 5 to 7 bar.

You will require a service unit with a 5 m filter for protecting


the proportional directional control valve against damage.

Service unit(2)
Use a service unit consisting of a compressed air filter
and a regulating valve (e.g. type LFR−...−D−... with 5 m
filter element) as well as a safety start−up valve
(e.g. HEL−...−...):

without lubricator

with a 5 m filter

with sufficiently large standard flow corresponding to


the air requirement of the connected drive during
positioning. Reference value: twice the rated flow of
the valve (type MPYE−5−...), e.g.:

Valve type Service unit

MPYE−5−1/8−LF−010B LFR−M1−G1/8−C10RG or
LFR−1/8−D−5M−MINI

MPYE−5−1/8−HF−010B LFR−M1−G1/4−C10RG or
LFR−1/4−D−5M−MINI

MPYE−5−1/4−010B LFR−M2−G1/4−C10RG or
LFR−3/8−D−5M−MIDI

MPYE−5−3/8−010B LFR−M2−G3/8−C10RG or
LFR−3/4−D−5M−MAXI

Use a microfilter if you cannot avoid slight oil mist from


the compressed air supply.

3−5
3. Installation

Compressed air reservoir (3)


If the positioning behaviour does not conform to your require
ments, and if you ascertain fluctuations in pressure of over
1 bar at the measuring point, then proceed as follows:

Fit a compressed air reservoir (e.g. type VZS−...−B) be


tween the service unit and the proportional directional
control valve.

In this way you can reduce fluctuations in pressure during


operation. You can compensate for slight excesses in the
permitted pressure by using supply tubing with a larger
diameter.

Reservoir volume:

The reservoir volume should be at least four times as large as


the volume of the drive used.

VP=4*VZ
V P = buffer volume
V Z = cylinder volume (linear drive: V Z = r 2 * ð* L Z )
L Z = cylinder stroke length

3−6 Festo P.BE−SPC11−SYS−EN en 0404b


3. Installation

Compressed air tubing and screw connectors (4)


Use only straight screw connectors. If angled connectors
cannot be avoided, use plug connectors from the Quick
Star series.

Cut compressed air tubing and hoses to the required size,


as specified in the manual for the drive used.

Arrange the tubing between the valve (MPYE−5−...) and the


drive symmetrically.

Use only clean compressed air tubing and connectors.


Details on permitted temperatures and pressure ranges
for tubing and connectors can be found in the products
catalogue.

Do not install restrictors in the supply lines.

Arrange the tubing so that it does not project into the


positioning range.

For good positioning behaviour during operation, fluctuations


in pressure of max. 1 bar are permitted in front of the propor
tional directional control valve. In order to check the stability
of the supply pressure, you can fit a pressure measuring
point directly in front of the proportional directional control
valve.

3−7
3. Installation

Proportional directional control valve (5)


Arrange the tubing between the valve (MPYE−5−...) and the
drive symmetrically.

Recommendation for linear drives and drives with piston rod:


tubing length = cylinder length.

The diagram below shows as an example the tubing of a cylin


der with an MPYE−5−... when an SPC11 is used without an
emergency stop circuit.

supplied with the valve.

3−8 Festo P.BE−SPC11−SYS−EN en 0404b


3. Installation

If the proportional directional control valve is to be used


in an environment subjected to heavy electrical interfer
ence, it should be insulated from the mounting surface.

Fitting onto moving parts

If fitted to moving parts, the proportional directional con


trol valve must be mounted at right−angles to the direc
tion of movement. Acceleration forces then have no influ
ence on the valve slide setting.

Reducing loud exhaust noises

Fit larger silencers with the aid of tubing or:

Pass the ducted exhaust into a small compressed air


reservoir and exhaust this with a large silencer. Make sure
that there is sufficient flow through the screw connectors
and tubing (with PUN−8 tubing length max. 1 m).

3. Installation

Drive (6)
Use only the permitted combinations of drives and measuring
systems approved of by Festo for the SPC11.

The drive−valve combinations, cylinder diameters, cylinder


lengths and mass loads permitted for the drive used can be
found in the Drive−Specific Supplement" manual.

Connect the drive, guide, measuring system and the load free
of play in the direction of movement and flush with each
other.

If necessary, provide a sufficiently large supply of energy in


order to minimise the effects of transverse forces on the posi
tioning behaviour.

Observe the maintenance intervals specified in the operating


instructions for the drive (see operating instructions for the
cylinder/drive or the guide).

3.2.1 Pneumatic emergency stop circuit

In order to put the system into a safe state in the event of a


fault, you will require a pneumatic emergency stop circuit.
From the types listed below, select the one which best suits
the construction and operating characteristics of your sys
tem:

Drive pressureless during emergency stop

Drive clamped during emergency stop

Drive moves at reduced speed into the left or right−hand


end position during emergency stop.

Please note
If the operating voltage supply for the SPC11 is switched
off, the proportional directional control valve type MPYE−...
will move to the mechanical mid−position. Due to the asym
metrical voltage−pressure curve of the proportional direc
tional control valve when the supply pressure is switched
on, the slide can move slowly into one of the end positions.

Variants of emergency stop circuits


The following four diagrams show as an example four variants
of emergency stop circuits for a linear drive. In each case the
emergency stop situation is represented.

For requirements and recommendations concerning the


components used, see Fig. 3/11 and Fig. 3/12.

4.2.1 Parameters A, C and S

The permitted values of the parameters A, C, and S for the


drive you are using can be found in the appropriate axis−

4.2.2 Parameters L and r (only with type SPC11−INC)

The parameters L and r are only queried when incremental


path measuring systems are used (e.g. positioning drive
DNCI−...−... in connection with type SPC11−INC).

With incremental path measuring systems, the SPC11


requires the following information:

P.01 and the axis zero point (see Fig. 4/2).

Nominal stroke length (L) Nominal stroke length (L) of the drive, see type designation
of the drive [mm] on the type plate (e.g. type DNCI−32−300−P−A has a nominal
stroke length of 300 mm).

Offset axis zero point (r) For a good positioning behaviour, the SPC11 must know the
[mm] positioning range used by the drive. The offset axis zero
point specifies the offset between the end position P.01 and
the axis zero point. With an offset of 0 cm, the end position
P.01 lies in the axis zero point.

Remarks on reference travel


With incremental path measuring systems, the measurement
variable refers to a reference point and is determined by
counting equally large measurement steps (increments). The
relationship between measurement variable and current posi
tion is created through the reference travel.

Referencing in the teach In the teach procedure (see also section 4.3.1), the end
procedure positions P.01 and P.02 are approached. This creates the
relationship between measurement variable and current
position. Reference travel is not necessary.

Reference travel after After the SPC11 operating voltage is switched on again, the
POWER ON relationship between measurement variable and current
position is lost. Reference travel into the end positions P.01
or P.02 is necessary (see also section 4.4).

4.3.1 Preparations for the teach procedure

Teach procedure During the teach procedure movement is made at first


cyclically and slowly to the end positions P.01 and P.02. In
this way the SPC−11 learns the mechanical end positions and
some characteristic system values such as friction and
hysteresis. The SPC11 saves these values in the integrated
EEPROM.

In order to check the set parameters for plausibility, the


moveable mass is first brought dynamically into the centre of
the positioning stroke used and then moved to just in front of
end position P.01.

Note
When an incremental path measuring system is used
(e.g. with type DNCI−...−...): During the teach procedure,
movement is made to the end positions P.01 and P.02. This
creates the relationship between measurement variable
and current position. Reference travel is not necessary.

The teach procedure is concluded when the moveable mass is


pressed against end position P.01 and the output O1 supplies
a 1−signal.

Before commissioning can be undertaken, the pneumatic


drive must be ready for operation. The teach procedure
should be carried out with maximum permitted mass load.
During the teach procedure there must be a 0−signal at inputs
P.01 to P.04.

Proceed as follows in order to prepare the teach procedure:

1. Check the complete system structure, especially the drive


tubing (see chapter 3). Special specifications for your
drive can be found in the Drive−Specific Supplement".

2. Check the electrical circuitry.

4.3.2 Start the teach procedure

Condition There must be a 0−signal at inputs I1...4. The parameters


must be set correctly. The maximum mass load and, if appli
cable, the fixed stops must be fitted correctly. To be able to
start the teach procedure with the buttons, a 0−signal must
be present at the Remote input (I8).

Warning
In order to avoid damage caused by uncushioned
movement into the end positions, proceed as follows:
with the first commissioning
when the fixed stops have been adjusted
after changing the parameters A, C, S, L, r
or after replacing components or tubing.

1. Make sure that:


· the compressed air supply and the operating voltage of
the SPC11 are switched off
· the above−mentioned prerequisites are fulfilled.

2. Switch on the operating voltage for the SPC11. The SPC11


will then show briefly the version number of the firmware.
The set parameters are then shown, so that they can be
checked.

3. Now switch on the compressed air supply (5 to 7 bar).


As the valve slide assumes the electrical mid−position, the
moveable load can move slowly into one of the end posi
tions due to the asymmetrical voltage−pressure curve of
the proportional directional control valve.

The SPC11 permits fast movement into up to two selectable


intermediate positions. The desired intermediate positions
are learnt" by manual movement or by shifting the moveable
mass and then saving. The learnt" intermediate positions
can be approached during operation.

The intermediate positions can also be used as sensor posi


tions, as the relevant output (O3...O4) supplies a 1−signal for
50 ms when the intermediate positions are travelled over
(see section 4.4.4).

Condition The drive must be ready for operation. There must be a


0−signal at inputs I1...4. In the procedure using the buttons
on the SPC11, a 0−signal must be present at the Remote
input (I8). The supply pressure must be switched on or off,
depending on the variant.

switched off desired position very accurately by hand
during the teach procedure.

The supply pressure is The mass can be moved manually. Very


switched on accurate positioning can, under certain
circumstances, be difficult and may take a
considerable amount of time.

The following explains how to teach the intermediate posi


tions when the supply pressure is switched on. If you wish to
teach the intermediate positions with the supply pressure
switched off, you must proceed in exactly the same manner.
However, the mass will not start moving automatically when
the button is pressed { or }, but must be brought into the
desired intermediate position by hand. The button {or}
must still be pressed at the appropriate position.

cylinder stroke length or of the complete rotary angle, in
order to provide a sufficient compressed air cushion.

Positioning paths between taught positions should not be


less than 3 % of the complete cylinder stroke length or of
the complete rotary angle.
With linear drives and cylinders the positioning paths
should be at least 20 mm.

If the intermediate positions P.03 and P.04 lie at the same


point and if movement is made to one of the intermediate
positions (e.g. to P.03), only the output corresponding to
the order (e.g. O3) will be set when the intermediate posi
tion is reached. The output bit of the other intermediate
position will be set for 50 ms only if the position is tra
velled over (overswing) (sensor function).

Reference travel after Only for incremental path measuring systems:


POWER ON After the SPC11 operating voltage is switched on again, the
relationship between measurement variable and current
position is lost. For that reason, you must always carry out
reference travel after switching on again. Reference travel
can take place either in the end position P.01 or the end
position P.02.

Starting reference travel Reference travel is started after POWER ON through a


positioning task to P.01 or P.02.

Other positioning tasks are not permitted after POWER ON


and result in the error E18 reference travel".

Process of reference travel If the drive is already in the desired end position when refer
ence travel is started:
A movement toward the end position is impossible. To check
whether compressed air supply is lacking or the drive is
already in the end position, pressure is added briefly in the
opposite direction.

Note
Here the drive carries out a short compensating movement
in the opposite direction.

If the drive is not yet in the desired end position when refer
ence travel is started:
The drive moves slowly toward the end position.

During the reference travel, the message rEF" is displayed.


Reference travel is concluded when the moveable mass is
pressed against the corresponding end position (P.01 or P.02)
and the assigned output (O1 or O2) supplies a 1−signal.

If there is no positioning order when the power supply is


switched on and if the moveable mass is not at one of the end
positions, the valve slide will remain in the electrical mid−posi
tion. Due to the asymmetrical voltage−pressure curve of the
proportional directional control valve, the slide can now move

4.4.2 The first positioning task

During the first positioning task the SPC11 checks whether


the mass moves in the desired direction. If the mass moves in
the wrong direction, the SPC11 will diagnose incorrectly con
nected tubing in the system and display error E12 (incorrect
direction of movement). The SPC11 then reacts as follows:

The valve slide of the proportional directional control


valve will then be brought into the electrical mid−position
(flow blocked)

The ERROR output supplies a 1−signal.

No new positioning task will be accepted.

This safety function helps to prevent damage as a result of


incorrectly connected tubing in the system.

In the case of incorrectly connected tubing in the system:

Switch off the operating voltage and correct the tubing.

If the moveable mass is already in one of the end positions


when the operating voltage is switched on, a positioning task
into this end position will be generated and the mass will be
pressed against the end position. If the drive moves out of
the end position instead of remaining in that end position, the
SPC11 will also diagnose incorrectly connected tubing in the
system and will display an error. The fault may be due to one
of the following causes:

the compressed air supply is still switched off. the drive


has been moved manually or moved from the end position
by external forces, or it has moved itself (e.g. when fitted
in a vertical position).

the drive moves briefly out of the end position because


the system has been pressurised too quickly (asymmetri
cal pressure build−up in the cylinder chambers).

4−38 Festo P.BE−SPC11−SYS−EN en 0404b


4. Commissioning

In order to avoid such causes, proceed as follows:

Pressurise the complete system slowly (e.g. by using the


safety start−up valve type HEL−... or HEM−...). No unex
pected movements of the actuators will then occur.

Make sure that the moveable mass cannot move itself or


be moved manually (e.g. by means of a clamping unit) out
of the end position when the operating voltage is
switched on.

4−39
4. Commissioning

4.4.3 Controlling the SPC11

You can move the mass into the saved end positions or inter
mediate positions with the command inputs P.01...P.04.
When an end position is reached, the moveable mass will be
pressed against the stop with a pressure equal at maximum
to the operating pressure. When an intermediate position is
reached, the moveable mass stands controlled in that posi
tion.

A 1−signal at the remote input deactivates the operating


buttons and activates the corresponding remote inputs
(pins 2...4). This makes it possible to manually travel over
external operating buttons or a higher−order PLC, for example
(Pin assignment, see section 3.3.2).

4.4.4 Use the taught intermediate position as the sensor position

The taught intermediate positions can also be used as sensor


positions, as the relevant output (O3...O4) supplies a 1−signal
for 50 ms if the intermediate positions are overrun.

Example 1: Change of direction

Note
If the SPC11 is to be controlled directly by means of the
sensor signal", note that:
the distance between the taught intermediate position
and the mechanical end position must be of sufficient
length, as the braking process is not started until the
signal is recognised.

A premature change of direction can be implemented with the


aid of a taught intermediate position. The relevant output bit
(O3...4) of the SPC11 supplies a 1−signal for 50 ms when the
moveable mass has traversed the relevant path. The move
able mass is then moved back to the end position by means
of an input signal.

Cushioning stage The cushioning stage serves to optimise the approach


behaviour when moving to the end positions (lower stage =
less cushioning).

Setting Description

Too high The positioning procedure is heavily cushioned.


The positioning time is extended.

Too low Leads to heavy overswing and, as a result, to hard


striking of the fixed stops.

Optimal The braking phase (counter pressurisation) is


started early enough. Less shaking when moving to
end positions.

Amplification stage The amplification stage should not normally be modified


(lower stage = less amplification).

5. Diagnosis and error treatment

Procedure for optimising

Note
If, after you have taught the end positions again, the previ
ously taught intermediate positions (P.03 and P.04) now lie
outside the positioning range, positioning commands to
move to the intermediate positions will be ignored. As
soon as the intermediate positions lie once again in the
permitted positioning range, as a result of adjustment of
the end stops and re−teaching of the end positions, posi
tioning commands to move to the intermediate positions
will be carried out again.

Condition There must be a 0−signal at inputs I1...4. The maximum


mass load and, if applicable, the fixed stops must be fitted
correctly.

1. Ascertain first the cushioning stage which is


recommended for the components you are using
(see Drive−Specific Supplement").

2. Make sure that the drive is standing still.

Caution
When the modification mode is activated, the valve slide
assumes the mechanical mid−position. During positioning
the mass can therefore move uncushioned into an end
position.
Make sure that the drive is standing still before you acti
vate the modification mode.

3. In order to activate the modification mode, press all three


buttons on the SPC11 at the same time. The modification
mode will then be activated. The SPC11 shows the ampli

permitted range.

Install exhaust restrictors in the exhaust lines of the


proportional directional control valve.

Note
Make sure that the exhaust−air throttles are completely
opened during the teach procedure.

If fluctuations in pressure of over 1 bar occur in front of the


proportional directional control valve, install a compressed
air reservoir (see chapter 3). Please observe the general in
stallation instructions!

A.1 The SPC11 remote inputs

A 1−signal at the Remote input deactivates the SPC11 but


tons. The button functions can then be called up via the digi
tal inputs (I5...7). This permits start−up via external operating
buttons or a higher−order PLC/IPC.

Input Function Description

I7 {/− With position change:


A 1−signal (min. 20 ms) at this input continuously reduces the
position value as long as the 1−signal is present (drives moves
toward the measuring system zero point).
With parameter change:
A 1−signal (min. 20 ms) at this input reduces the parameter
value by one. 1)

I6 Enter/Teach A 1−signal at this input (longer than 2 seconds) confirms the


(> 2 s) parameter value or starts the teach procedure.

Esc (< 1 s) A short 1−signal (< 1s ) breaks off the procedure.

I5 +/}With position change:


A 1−signal (min. 20 ms) at this input continuously increases
the position value as long as the 1−signal is present (drives
moves away from the measuring system zero point).
With parameter change:
A 1−signal (min. 20 ms) at this input increases the parameter
value by one. 1)
1)
Continuous change of parameter values is only possible via the SPC11 buttons.

A.2 Remarks on start−up via digital inputs/outputs

Note
With start−up via digital inputs, the same requirements
must be met as with start up via the buttons of the SPC11
(see chapter 4).

Setting the parameters using PLC/IPC


The SPC11 parameters can be set via the digital I/Os, such as
with external operating buttons, or by PLC/IPC.

The process of start up via digital I/Os does not differ from
start up via the buttons on the SPC11. A continuous change
of parameter values is only possible via the SPC11 buttons
(see chapter 4).

Note
When changing parameters, the current parameter values
are presented in the display on the SPC11. There is no
acknowledgement to the PLC/IPC.

How the parameters can still be set by PLC/IPC is shown in


the following flow diagram (see Fig. A/1) and the time−de
pendency diagrams contained in the following sections.
