The values used for acceleration and deceleration in Motion Studio and the available software libraries can be understood in several terms. The App Note looks at how to make sense of the various ways they can be interpreted.
The RoboClaw and MCP motor controllers have a new safety feature based around errors in the PID system. This application note takes a look at what it is and how to use it.
In systems with a PID controller the proportional, integral and derivative values must be set properly for the controller to operate well. Motion Studio features software to automatically tune these values for a motor and encoder combination. In this Application Note we’ll look at how to use it and fine tune the results.
Motion Studio feature the ability to graph different aspects of a motor, encoder and the controller against each other in real time. This Application Note covers the use of this feature.
The Position Settings window of Motion Studio is where the control loop for positon control is tuned and tested. This Application Note covers the controls and settings of this widow and what they are used for.
