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.
The Velocity Settings window in Motion Studio is where motors and encoder are tested. It’s also the location where tuning of motor and encoder combinations is carried out. This Application Note details all of the functionality within this section of Motion Studio.
This App Note is part of a series on the usage and features of Motion Studio. This article covers the PWM Settings window that is used for motor and encoder testing.
