Control Techniques has released a guide covering the theory and practice of motion control technology, from industrial applications to distributed control using intelligent variable speed drives.

The guide is aimed at all designers and users of motion control systems.

The free 68-page booklet, entitled ’A Guide to Motion Control Technology Systems and Programming’ is available on request from the company or can be downloaded from the brochure section of its website.

It looks at common indexing applications including indexing, flying shear and pick and place and then goes on to discuss motion profiles, position loop, speed loop, torque control and 1.5-axis interpolation.

The guide features worked examples of constant velocity/acceleration and motion equation reference and demystifies the complex field of feedback devices for motors.

It includes conversion information and then goes into more detail on tuning the speed loop for motion control and motion control solutions.

The guide gives an overview on levels of motion programming, position loop and motion references such as jogging, homing indexing, digital lock and CAM.

It concludes with an explanation of registration and looks at communication systems, including centrally controlled, centrally co-ordinated and full distribution control.
