Motion Controller Features
Multi-Axis Coordinated Motion - This application required coordinated streaming path motion so the X, X’, Y, and Z axes could follow a path trajectory.
Deterministic IO trigger within 250µs -The customer required several IO functions to be performed both quickly and deterministically. Our RMP EtherCAT Motion Controller includes several features that enabled them to trigger outputs based on pre-programmed events with 250µs.
Electronic Gearing - Our customer utilized the electronic gearing feature in our RMP EtherCAT Motion Controller to gear the X and X’ axes together and control it as a single gantry axis.
Custom Control Algorithm Design
RSI assisted in the development of a custom control algorithm which applies a torque bias to opposing motors to eliminate backlash. Coupled with our Dual Loop Feedback feature, this architecture yielded significantly improved tracking accuracy and performance.
RSI assisted with the selection of the servo system including the motors, drives, gearheads, precision encoders, and gear segments to withstand the worst elements of nature.
