Levels of motion component integration often require serious design consideration during machine and equipment development. A lack of integration can impact equipment size, assembly costs, and reliability. Yet expanded integration often affects the costs of components, manufacturing, and maintenance. It also raises design questions regarding the selection of motion system components. Obviously, what the design tries to achieve determines the compromises made. This presentation investigates and compares the differences between motion control systems based on chips, boards, or drives; evaluates how each fits into desired design parameters; and provides a quick understanding of the factors used to select a level of motion system integration.
Webinar topics covered include:
- The definition of control system components and their level of integration.
- The impact on system integration by chips, cards, and drives.
- Engineering design requirements vs. motion system integration
- Manufacturing considerations.
- Usability comparisons.
- Maintainability and reliability issues.
- Cost, size, and time to market factors.
- The key benefits for each design approach.
- A look at which application benefits the most from which solution.
- Several examples of integration in different applications.
