The customer used the RMP EtherCAT motion controller due to multi-axis synchronization. In addition, the RMP has helped the customer stream multi-axis motion trajectories in a real-time deterministic manner.
The customer has developed in-house simulation software and they were able to leverage RSI’s intuitive RapidCode software libraries (programmable in C++ and C#) to reach production quickly.
The customer selected a compact servo drive to be used with a brushless dc motor to ensure smooth motion.
Motion Controller Features
Streaming Motion: Our motion controller includes several very powerful streaming motion options which enabled our customer to stream coordinated multi-axis moves in a deterministic manner.
Performance and Reliability: When the application can not fail, our customer trusted our high-performance motion controller because it provides the reliability and performance required for medical robotic.
RTOS Integration: Our customer is running our motion controller with INtime alongside Windows. This architecture is paramount when latency times, performance, and reliability are critical. In addition, the motion firmware runs in a real-time deterministic manner.
