Using a gear can cause inaccuracy if the only encoder is positioned on the motor shaft.
A second encoder can be attached to the output shaft after the gear for an optimized position control.
This section shows exemplary how the cascaded position controller can be configured for a dual encoder setup.
The specified units of the PDOs are valid only for the default unit configuration.
If user defined velocity(e.g. mRPM, rad/s) or position units are configured, they will be used instead.
Additionally, in this particular configuration, the following objects: 0x606C Velocity actual value, 0x60B1 Velocity offset and 0x606b Velocity demand value are defined in the gearbox output reference frame, not in the motor frame.
See more about the velocity reference frame in the Migration Guide
The velocity FIR filter is before velocity feed forward until firmware 5.0.3! Only in the soon-to-be-released firmware 5.0.4 it will be at the shown position.
