Hi


Is it possible to monitor Axis 8 (Track Axis of Traverse Robot) in the cubic S ?


Regards


Max

Electrically, the interconnecting harness has provision for JT7, JT8, JT9 encoder signals.
However, according to the manual, specifically mentioned as a restriction - if using a Mitsubishi Motor, this cannot be monitored ( I assume this is down to the encoder used on these motors), so the monitoring of this axis should be disabled.
There is no mention of specific linear track restrictions - so can only assume this restriction is only applicable for the Mitsubishi Motor as an external axis motor used in conjunction with Cubic-S.
The other motors usually used as external axes are Sanyo - there is no mention of any restriction on this motor, so based on that, I would be inclined to say:
Yes, but only if the external axes have Sanyo motors fitted.

However, this is only my interpretation of information I have read, so would recommend you to clarify this with a Kawasaki Distributor first.

This is possible to monitor an external 8th and 9th axis, but new special file ".as"  is needed in the cubic-s
