S-Curve Corner Transition – Design and Calculations >

The reason the S-Curve Corner Transition was designed was due to the existing Corner Distance Transition having a discontinuity in the acceleration vector when entering the circular arc of the transition. If the axes group is travelling in a line at…

Resolving Servo Feedback Choices >

This PowerPoint presentation explains the differences between different types of servo motor feedback devices, including: The differences between absolute and incremental devices. The differences between analog and digital devices. Typical…

Choosing a KAS Controller >

Choosing a controller that matches your project is important. You don't want to overspend on a device that is significantly more powerful than you need, but buying something that is not robust enough can be even more costly. By defining your…

Boot Time of AKD / AKD2G >

The boot time was measured from the point of applying 24V control power to the drives.  The time was measured to specific indicators and functions of the drives. Note that AC power was already turned on prior to running these tests, so that the…
