With the multiaxis synchronization function, up to 16 FANUC Power
Mate iMODEL H units can be interconnected, enabling synchronization
control for up to 128 axes. Use of a special communication line for
multiaxis synchronization allows precise synchronization. This function
is free from synchronous error accumulation even after longtime
operation.
The multiaxis synchronization function uses one master connected to
multiple slaves. The master must be placed at the beginning of the
multiaxis synchronization line. The device number of each Power Mate
iH unit is assigned in the same way as on the display link.
The multiaxis synchronization line interface is within the connector that
contains the display link interface. The method for connecting the
multiaxis synchronization line interface varies depending on how the
display link interface is used.
