Mathematics of Motion Control Profiles

  title={Mathematics of Motion Control Profiles},
  author={Chuck Lewin},
The answer, for many systems, is to focus on the motion profile instead. In the past ten years advanced profiling features such as asymmetric acceleration/deceleration, 7-segment S-curve profiling, change-on-the-fly, and electronic camming have become widely available, providing engineers with new tools to make machines work faster and better. This article will take you through the mathematics of motion profiles, discuss which profiles work best for which applications, and provide insights into… Expand
