Testing Remote Mode Operation With the WS6000 Controller

Our latest video provides step-by-step instructions on how to test the WS6000 Controller prior to installing it into your production line.

Video Transcript

Here I have two WinSet WS6000 controllers, and I would like to show you how to test the remote mode. So, I’ve connected the power supply to the wall outlet. It will work on any AC voltage between 110 and 480 volts due to the wide-range power supplies. So, you turn the unit on, and it will start in the mode it was last active in before being shut off.

Here is the remote mode. Toggle through the modes and make sure the memory is cleared. Then, here on the left, you see the input status LEDs, and you need to see that pattern for the controller to fire. You should be able to see it through the lid. And here you have the output status. This status is indicating that it is waiting for closure of remote reset. So here I have the remote reset input. On a normal unit, those terminals will be isolated on that side, so just connect the cable with a switch to the back. You can use any kind of switch like this one. This micro switch. So now, when I close the remote reset you hear the safety relay turn on and see the press active life turned on as well.

Here, my oscilloscope shows the pulse I created to 150 milliseconds should work with any pulse length starting from 60 milliseconds. Now I change the trigger to the other input. Okay, now every time I close input one, you can see on the LEDs something happens. The left side, you will see the closure of the input, and on the right side, you will see the user out two and three toggling and the feed out giving a signal.

What also happens here is that the count increases with any closure. And then, here on the oscilloscope we can see which pulse we created. This one has around 200 milliseconds. And before that, longer and maybe slightly shorter pulses. You can try creating a really short pulse. I’ll stop and start it again. This was 60 milliseconds, so it should fire on any pulse length between 60 and 700 milliseconds. And if you want to exit the press active mode again, you can close the stop input. Let me turn it on again. You can also do that with a switch.

So, this is the behavior the controller should have. If it does not do so, we would be glad to hear from you.
