Communication

Hi Again- Ok, My application is steering towards using RR to output to an arduino, and use the arduino to run servo (or steppers) to run my xy table, and also use my arduino to give my PLC a "finished" signal after a part is picked- now my next question is: What type of communication would be the one to use for the RR to Arduino- VBSCRIPT?? Again, I only know ladder logic, so whatever I need to learn, of course I will- Thanks Again- Bill

Bill,

The best way is to use the Sparkfun_Arduino module. You will find the Sketch that you need to download to the Arduino on that same page. Once this is done, you can use that module to control the IO pins on the Arduino and setup a PWM signal to be relayed via the Arduino.

If you need custom stuff beyond that, you can use the MCU_Communicator module for the Arduino which offers more flexibility but at the expense of doing your own coding on the Arduino.
