ATEQ function module

ATEQ function module

This function creates the connection to an F-series ATEQ via the cyclic and acyclic channel. The function is available for Siemens and Beckhoff controllers.

Profibus or Profinet (Siemens) or EtherCAT (Beckhoff) can be used as the bus system, depending on the ATEQ device. The sample program provided makes it easier to use.

Implemented functions

  • Programme start via programme number
  • Automatic request for Last Results after programme end
  • Start special cycles
  • Readout of the FIFO
  • Write and/or read test parameters
  • Write and/or read function bits
  • Write and/or read configuration bits
  • Display mode (manual mode) via associated image module

Cyclic channel

The module carries out the basic communication via the cyclic process data channel. Monitoring and processing of the communication signals is carried out by the function. You start the test programs stored in the testing device and the Pass/Fail results are reported back.

Acyclic channel

Each code character can be edited with reading or writing rights via the parameter data channel. The setting can be adjusted variably by the user. The individual commands are controlled exclusively by Boolean variables. The address ranges are set statically and/or variably in the data module beforehand.
