Part 1 of 3: Tension Control on Spindle Wheel
Electronic gearing in motion control allows for a slave axis to follow a master axis with a programatically set gear ratio. There are certain applications that obviously lend to an electronic gearing solution, but there are some challenging applications where the functionality of electronic gearing can greatly simplify a solution in a manner that may not seem obvious at first. This series of three papers will discuss how electronic gearing can provide simple solutions to different motion control challenges.
