Intelligent Motion Control and Machine Vision Single Compare & Trigger Linear Compare & Trigger Table Compare & Trigger Compare and Toggle Trigger Position / Velocity Override Under certain conditions, users can use commands to set up and change the position of a terminal point and movement speed to fulfill certain purposes. The terminal points and movement speed can still be changed on the fly. Trigger Function ƒ ƒ Single compare & trigger: trigger on a single position. ƒ ƒ Table compare & trigger: multi position triggers during fixed intervals or variable intervals can be achieved via commands. ƒ ƒ Linear compare & trigger: triggers on any position within 2D or 3D space can be achieved via commands. ƒ ƒ Compare and toggle trigger: as shown in the bottom right figure, we can set to invert DO after triggers of a certain position – ex. high voltage level at the first point after triggers for DO, low voltage level at the second point after triggers for DO, and high voltage level again at the third position and ends with a low voltage level at the fourth point. E-Gear Multi-axial and absolutely synchronized controls can be achieved through SoftMotion algorithms and parameter configurations. With E-Gear, users can enforce configurations and controls over master and slave gears through their relationship. This not only simplifies the mechanism designs, but also saves mechanism space and enforces absolute and synchronized controls. Simultaneously Start/Stop Simultaneously start/stop can be achieved by issuing commands to configure settings to trigger multiple axes and multiple cards from external signal sources. Software control via commands is also supported.
