Extended Control Functionalities

Synapticon provides several features for enhancing motion control even with low-cost hardware:

  • Cogging Torque Compensation Especially low-cost motors suffer from ripples caused by magnetic interaction between motor rotor and stator. This feature compensates the undesired effect.
  • Field Weakening The velocity range of electric motors can be extended by weakening the magnetic field of the rotor linearly over the speed range.
  • Anti-Windup Control An Anti-Windup alogorithm is used to prevent the Integrator part to accumulate beyond acceptable boundaries.
  • Torque Offset for Feedforward Control This feature allows a better performance if the load of the drive suddenly drops.
