-The program or motion profile will have specific parameters for each axis of motion. Parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired move, etc… can be different for each axis.
-Depending on the particular motion controller/indexer used, the number of independent axis will vary from 2-32 axis of motion.
Step 1. A program or motion profile will be written on a PC or laptop and downloaded to the motion controller/indexer. This program will contain parameters such as speed, acceleration, deceleration, desired move, etc…
Step 2. Based on the program parameters, the motion controller/indexer will command the needed number of steps in the desired direction in order to move the motor the desired distance.
Step 3. The microstepping driver will take the step & direction input signals and move the motor using the drivers set current. The bus voltage of the microstepping driver determines the max motor speed.
Step 4. The motor will move the desired amount at the programmed speed and acceleration.
