    My Motion Simulator:
    3DOF, AC motor
    Hello, everyone, last year I finished my first 2dof project by the help of Xsimulator community, and after that I shared all the details in a domesitc social media of my country, lots of people showed interest and helped me to improve with their knowledge.

    Servo motors are definitely a best power source for motion simulator, but there are not many affordable and easy to use interfaces available.
    Luckily in my follower group, a guy from a PLC manufacture figured how to use his industrial Programmable Logic Controller that is compatible with simtools to run servo motors.

    In this thread, I will share the most basic version that can run 4 motors(there are models that can run up to 10), and hopfully you can give some advises to let us make it better.

    My SFX100 looklike rig and actuator build will be introduce in project thread later.

    To see the functionality of the PLC please do watch the video below, sorry for my bad English.
    I will explain if you wish to know more about this.
    Thanks. BKai (aka SoftKitty)
