Motion Control Function Block Library (dwOPTION -36)

For multi-axis motion control of all types of drives - AC drives, DC drives, servos, steppers, hydraulic, linear actuator, etc., in a wide variety of general industrial position control applications including:
  • Pick & place machines
  • Packaging machines
  • Painting robots
  • Cut to length
  • Automated assembly processes

A key requirement for numerous machine controls.


Key Features:

  • Continuous target recalculation
  • Easy system set up
  • Easy performance optimization
  • Pause with controlled accel/decel
  • Hold with fast stop
Trapezoidal Motion

A key requirement for numerous machine controls.


Key Features:

  • Easy graphical profile editor
  • Optional .csv file import
  • Easy .csv file export
  • Easy system set up
  • Easy integration with multiple axes
  • Up to 100 “knots” or points for complex profiles
  • 16-bit signed input and output resolution for accurate cam forms

very smart!

motion control Stepper Drive Controllers

These stepper drive controller options are available for most versions of the smarty. Both options include:

  • 2 channels of pulse & direction
  • 2 fast event inputs for count reset
  • 64-bit pulse counts
  • Automatic datum reset
  • Easy set up
  • Selectable count persistence with “clear on power up”

In a typical open loop stepper drive application, the “Position” parameter (derived from the pulse count) can be used to close the position control loop.

Motion Control FBL - Open Loop Stepper

In a typical closed loop stepper drive application the position feedback can be provided by an encoder. The dwOPTION -42-45 encoder module also has two fast event inputs for auto count reset.
