Motion System Design: Key Questions, Expert Answers
The design of motion control applications generally is considered a specialty subset of controls engineering. Controls engineers might be experts in general machine control, but they sometimes lack the knowledge and experience to design and implement a robust motion control system. A successful motion design will come to grips with key questions ranging from the type of motor, drive and controller that best suits the application to how much help auto-tuning software can give you and how to do the integration, among others. This 15-minute, on-demand presentation by Brian Beal, president of system integrator Highland Controls, reveals the 10 key questions you need to ask, and more importantly, how to get the right answers for your application.
