Servo Systems and Motion Control Engineering


Servo Systems and Motion Control Engineering

A typical Motion Control and Servo System involves one or more motors providing feedback (typically through an encoder) to a programmable motion controller. The servo controls one or more command parameters (position, velocity, or torque) through PID control loops. Modern Motion Control Systems can be cable of sophisticated control such as several axes electronically geared (cam), high speed and precision motion, and sub-micro precision. Many employ high-speed synchronous communication buses,  such as ETHERNET Powerlink, ProfiNET, or Drive-Cliq, allowing advanced feedback devices like multi-turn absolute encoders.

Properly tuned systems and optimized motion control programs can help reduce cycle time, product waste, and improve throughput and productivity.
