FANUC PMC-MODEL SD7
EDIT DATE DESIG.
1.2 PMC Basic Configuration
The basic configuration of the PMC is as shown below.
There are two types of PMC:
• Those using programming that conforms with IEC61131-3, as
described in this manual
• Those using existing FANUC proprietary instructions and related
For example, in the case of the Series 16i-B, the former is represented by the
PMC-SD7, while the latter is represented by the PMC-SB7
For these two types of PMC, the mapping and functions of the interface
signals between the CNC or machine tool and the PMC are identical, and
correspond on a one-to-one basis. Upon reference from a PMC sequence
program, only the address or instruction declaration changes.
Therefore, upon reference from a CNC, open CNC PC function, or external
PMC application, the PMC signal address and so on are converted to those
corresponding to the corresponding PMC type.
Example: Emergency stop signal (*ESP)
