Are you a PLC engineer or a purchaser looking for solutions to improve the smoothness and shock absorption of machine motion? Look no further! In this article, we will explore how PLCs can address these challenges and create a more seamless and stable operation.
1. Acceleration and Deceleration Control
PLCs utilize acceleration and deceleration curves to control the start and stop processes of machines. By gradually increasing or decreasing the speed rather than abruptly changing it, PLCs ensure smoother motion while reducing impacts and vibrations.
2. Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Control
PWM technology enables PLCs to control motor speed and torque output. By adjusting the duty cycle of the PWM signal, PLCs achieve smooth control signals, minimizing the shocks and vibrations during machine motion.
3. Motion Smoothing Filters
PLCs can incorporate motion smoothing filters to eliminate noise and interference in the drive signals, thereby reducing jitter and vibrations during machine motion. These filters are integrated into the control system to smooth out the dynamic variations in the control signals.
