Traditional motion control applications came with limited options.
Embedded OEMs – especially those whose products have complex human-machine interfaces (HMIs), manage many degrees of motion, and require hard real-time operation – have traditionally relied on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and digital signal processors (DSPs) to meet the precision and performance requirements of machine vision and motion control applications.
CYCLE TIMES FOR TRACKMOTION ROBOTIC CELLS Placing a robot on a track greatly expands its reach envelope, potentially allowing it to tend many more machines or to transfer materials across a much greater distance.
