interface points. You can look back and
take a look at the DAC outputs in Photo 4.
To bring up the Kanalog in KMOTION,
we must activate the Kanalog in the
KMOTION Options drop-down menu.
Once that’s done, a Kanalog tab is added
to the digital I/O view and the Kanalog
ADC and DAC values become available in
the analog I/O view.
Screenshot 9 visually lays all of this out.
All of the I/O bits in the left-most column
of the digital I/O view are inputs, while all
of the Kanalog outputs are listed in the
We can easily put a finger on the
Kanalog’s opto I/O, ADC, DAC, and FET
driver interface points. However, the
general-purpose bits are not that obvious.
Input bits 128 through 135 and output bits
160 through 167 are positioned on the
JP12 connector. JP12 pin mapping can be
found in the KMOTION manual package
which can be downloaded from the

are captured in this shot. The RJ- 45 connection enables the
second set of eight differential encoder inputs.
The FET relay interface is positioned at the far right.
