Select trigger source for zero pulse search (P-AXIS-00701)


Select the trigger source for zero pulse search by the drive parameter 0x60D0


This parameter sets the trigger source which is to be used for homing.

For homing with zero pulse search in the case of CANopen drives, the following applies: In accordance with CiA DS402, the trigger source to detect the probing event is specified in the bit 0x4 or 0x400 of the latch control word (controller default response).

Another variant is to set the trigger source in the drive in the drive object 0x60D0 subindices 1 and 2. In order to use this variant, this parameter must be set to the value "DRIVE_DEFINED". In this case, the bit 0x8 or 0x800 must be set in the latch control word of the drive when the latch function is active.
