The basic approach of this textbook, like many, is a practical and experimental one; however, it is reversed from most. Instead of first explaining the theory of motion control and then applying it to specific examples, here we will start with hands-on experimenting on a real maxon EPOS2 P positioning control system by means of the EPOS Studio software and explain all the relevant motion control principles/features as they appear on the journey. Therefore, the text contains mainly the exercises and practical work to do. Background information can be found in the colored boxes.
This is primarily a textbook about motion control and not about programming a PLC. Therefore, the programming part should be considered as an introduction on how to program the motion control aspects. It is not a full PLC programming course.
Motion control is mechatronics. It is the combination of mechanics and electronics, of actuators (motors) and sensors all controlled by software. In this textbook, we identify and define the role, behavior and mutual interaction of the different elements of a motion control system. However, we need to know the basic internal construction and working principles of the elements only to a limited extent, but rather look at them as a black box. Given a certain input, what comes out of the box? How is this output generated and which parameter can be used to influence the output? For instance, we will not explain how feed forward control must be implemented, but we will explain the basic idea of it and how the parameters will look during axis tuning… click on the link below to download the complete textbook.
