MULTI AXIS: LINEAR MOTOR DRIVEN POSITIONING STAGE
-The program or motion profile will have specific parameters for each axis of motion. Parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired position, etc… can be different for each axis.
-The motion controller can simultaneously monitor the feedback of multiple axis for coordinated motion control.
-Depending on the particular motion controller used, the number of independent axis will vary from 2-32 axis of motion.
. A program or motion profile will be written on a PC or laptop and downloaded to the motion controller. This program will contain parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, PIDs, desired position, etc…
. Based on the program parameters, the motion controller will send a +/- 10V reference signal to the servo amplifier.
. The servo amplifier will take the reference input signal and provide the necessary current to generate the required force from the motor to move to the desired position.
. The motor will move to the desired position at the programmed speed and acceleration.
: Motor position is sent back to the controller to verify that the desired position has been reached and maintained.
