Title: Project creating help needed.
Post by: Wireloom OY on May 22, 2018, 02:05:40 PM
Hello,

Our company is new user of Plus+1 Guide and Danfoss hydraulic components.
We need to build up project for our forest crane operating for Danfoss valves. We use 2 PROF1 yoystics + MC024 controller + 8 PVEA actuators.
I am beginner on programming field. I passed free e-learning courses.
 
I already started with project but need somebody to assist me to look project over and help to find weak points.

With best regards,

Kristjan

I really haven't got time to look anything over, but I can offer some advice.  First, I recommend going through the tutorials in the GUIDE user manual starting on page 502.  The e-learned, sadly, is very much outdated in many ways. 

Next, use the Service Tool to monitor input from your joystick (CAN or no?).  If it is a CAN joystick then you'll want to get the Compliance block for it to make it easier to pick up the X and Y axis.  Then you'll want to get the Compliance block for the PVEA actuator.  These compliance blocks have a user manual that you'll want to at least skim.  Also the technical manual for your PVEA will indicate how to wire it and what sort of signal it needs (10% to 90% of battery voltage I think).  Following all that, see if you can get one joystick axis to drive one PVEA and go from there.

Hello Tom,

Thank You very much for You time to give advice.
Yes we use CAN joysticks. I will go through the manual, go forward with blocks and try to get first actions to move.

With best regards,
Kristjan
