Part 2 of the XPlanar series is out now! In this second part we will create a new TwinCAT 3 project and get introduced to the XPlanar configurator. We will also start writing the software for XPlanar.
Together with Isaac Spear from Beckhoff Automation USA I’ve created a series of three videos where we will look into XPlanar, which is Beckhoff’s planar motor system, which combines the advantages of conventional transport technologies with magnetic levitation. In this first part we will get an introduction to the system and the theory behind it. In the later videos we will do some practice.
