Video helps with servo motor tuning
Viewers now can learn to use the Galil Motion Control GalilTools scope to help tune a servo motor. View and measure the system step response and adjust the PID tuning parameters until optimum performance is observed.
Galil recently added a two minute video to show how to easily tune servo systems using the scope provided by GalilTools software. The scope tool allows the user to easily view and measure the system step response and adjust the PID tuning parameters until the optimum performance is observed. The video shows useful features of the scope such as data recording, triggering and the scope overlay with cursor.
The system components used in the video demonstration are Galil’s DMC-4010 Accelera motion controller and drive connected to a servo motor with encoder and a PC running GalilTools software.
Galil’s library of informative videos presents solutions to common motion and I/O problems. Currently available videos, free to view, include:
