Motion Control and I/O Control via IncentiveAPI
IncentiveAPI provides a high-level programming interface giving you complete access to interact with motion control and I/O control processes. Through this API, you can:
- Bidirectional information exchange with a running automation program in IncentivePLC.
- Query detailed information about any axis of motion or I/O point being controlled on an EtherCAT network via IncentiveECAT.
- Override or directly control motion and I/O via IncentiveECAT.
Classes and methods available through this API are shown below. For full documentation, including accessible properties and programming examples in C#, C++ and VB.Net, download the IncentiveAPI help file using the link below (to see the content of the help file, you may have to right click on its icon after downloading, display the file properties, and select “unblock” from the properties dialog).
