Optimizer Pro

The Optimizer PRO is the only option offered in SERVOsoft. It must be ordered in addition to the SERVOsoft PRO version, which supports polynomials and splines that are required for the Optimizer PRO.

The Optimizer PRO works at both ends of the drive chain. Either at the load by playing with the motion profile, or by Curve Fitting at the drive and motor, and then generating the resulting motion profile at the load.

Motion Profile for Target Function and Constraints

The Optimizer optimizes motion profiles for minimum duration, velocity, accel and jerk, as well as motor torque, force, and drive peak power and continuous power (energy efficiency). The only fixed parameters are duration and distance. When optimizing for duration, then only distance is fixed. Duration and distance are defined in the Sequence. The Optimizer PRO is especially useful for complex dynamic loads and mechanisms such as the Slider Crank.

Curve Fitting

Use Curve Fitting to build an acceleration/deceleration ramp that is as fast as possible within rated limits that you specify. Curve Fitting creates a motion profile that "curve fits" to one or more rated curves. The result is an acceleration/deceleration ramp that is as fast as possible within your specified margins.
