MULTI AXIS: LINEAR STEPPER MOTOR
-The program or motion profile will have specific parameters for each axis of motion. Parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired move, etc… can be different for each axis.
-Depending on the particular motion controller/indexer 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/indexer. This program will contain parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired move, etc…
. Based on the program parameters, the motion controller/indexer will command the needed number of steps in the desired direction in order to move the motor the desired distance.
. The microstepping driver will take the step & direction input signals and move the motor using the drivers set current. The bus voltage of the microstepping driver determines the max motor speed.
. The motor will move the desired amount at the programmed speed and acceleration.
