Thrust = 100*VEL


Thrust = (500/3)*(VEL/MAXVEL)


Profile Variables Units
VEL Velocity Linear: m, mm, in
Rotary: °, rad, rev
MAXVEL Max Velocity in Segment/Move
Always a positive value
Ie. MAXVEL = Max(Abs(VEL)) in the Segment/Move
Linear: m/s, mm/s, in/s
Rotary: °/s, rad/s, rev/s
MAXVELCYC Max Velocity in Cycle/Sequence
Always a positive value
Ie. MAXVELCYC = Max(Abs(VEL)) in the Cycle/Sequence
Linear: m/s, mm/s, in/s
Rotary: °/s, rad/s, rev/s
