How to monitor the Safe Torque Off in Power Brick LV
#1
The BrickAC.STO 0/1 can be used in Brick AC controller to monitor the Safe Torque Off status, does these BrickAC.STO 0/1 commands can be used in Power Brick LV also?

The Power Brick LV does not exhibit an amplifier fault in the motor status when the STO is triggered, it is strongly advised to issue a kill to all active motors as soon as the STO is triggered. This can be done in a background PLC. It is suggested to wire the STO feedback to input#1 of the Power Brick LV.

See the "STO" section of the "Power Brick LV User Manual" for implementation details.

Dear steve.milici,

I saw the 'STO' section of the "Power Brick LV User Manual" and I got confused in 3 points.

1) Is the 'STO feedback' mentioned the same as 'STO Out (pin #1)'?
2) When you say "It is suggested to wire the STO feedback to input#1 of the Power Brick LV". Is the input#1 the Digital Input pin1 'X15: D-sub DC-37F'?

3) (Assumed STO feedback the same as STO Out)
It seems the 'recovering from the STO' suggested PLC code has mistakes in the conditionals sentences


OPEN PLC STOResetPLC
LOCAL Mtr1PrevI2TSet;
IF (Input1) // I think this should be 'IF (~(input1))' once STO Out has 0V in failured condition
// STO ENGAGED?
{
IF (Motor[1].I2tSum > 0)
// I2T CHARGED?
{
KILL 1
Mtr1PrevI2TSet = Motor[1].I2TSet
DO {Motor[1].I2tSet = 0} WHILE (Motor[1].I2tSum > 0)
Motor[1].I2TSet = Mtr1PrevI2TSet
}
WHILE(Input1){} // Same here
}



Thanks in advance,
Guilherme

1. Yes, this is true.
2. Yes, this is also true.
3. This assumes the default inversion state. If your setup is different you would do the logical inversion with "!".
