Motion Profile Generation
Jerk-Limited Point-to-Point Motion
Minimize Disturbance and Vibration with Smooth Motion Profiles
2nd-order acceleration-limited profiles are not suitable for many motion control applications because the instantaneous changes in acceleration create disturbances that limit achievable throughput and accuracy. ACS motion controllers provide 3rd-order jerk-limited motion profiles for point-to-point and segmented motion. For the most demanding applications, more advanced motion profile algorithms such as MotionBoost can offer further performance improvements.
- Ensure complete synchronization of all motion axes start and stop
- Adjust motion profile parameters on the fly to increase throughput
- Condition events on motion phases to increase throughput
