void AxisAdd(Axis *axis)
Add an Axis to a MultiAxis group.
The MultiAxis object allows you to map two or more axes together and command synchronized motion.
Definition: rsi.h:11031
void AxisCountSet(int32_t axisCount)
Set the number of allocated and processed axes in the controller.
void ClearFaults()
Clear all faults for an Axis or MultiAxis.
The RsiError object contains information about any RapidCode API object's error/exception.
Definition: rsi.h:93
void Delete(void)
Delete the MotionController and all its objects.
static MotionController * CreateFromSoftware()
Initialize and start the RMP EtherCAT controller.
Axis * AxisGet(int32_t axisNumber)
AxisGet returns a pointer to an Axis object and initializes its internals.
void PositionSet(double position)
Set the Command and Actual positions.
void Abort()
Abort an axis.
void UserUnitsSet(double countsPerUserUnit)
Sets the number of counts per User Unit.
The MotionController object represents the RMP INtime soft motion controller.
Definition: rsi.h:747
void MovePVT(const double *const position, const double *const velocity, const double *const time, int32_t pointCount, int32_t emptyCount, bool retain, bool final)
Move commanded by list of positions, velocities, and times.
The Axis object manages a single physical axis on a motion controller.
Definition: rsi.h:5887
void AmpEnableSet(bool enable)
Enable all amplifiers.
static void CheckErrors(RapidCodeObject rsiObject)
Check if the RapidCode Object has any errors.
Definition: HelperFunctions.cs:64
static void StartTheNetwork(MotionController controller)
Start the controller communication/network.
Definition: HelperFunctions.cs:109
int32_t MotionDoneWait()
Waits for a move to complete.
MultiAxis * MultiAxisGet(int32_t motionSupervisorNumber)
MultiAxisGet returns a pointer to a MultiAxis object and initializes its internals.
int32_t MotionCountGet()
Get the number of Motion Supervisors available in the firmware.
