Teknic Features Regressive Auto-Spline Motion-Smoothing Algorithm
RAS goes beyond traditional motion smoothing algorithms such as S-curving or cosine smoothing by limiting the jerk and the jerk-derivative.
February 24, 2022
Teknic’s Regressive Auto-Spline (RAS) is available in Teknic’s ClearPath integrated servos. RAS goes beyond traditional motion smoothing algorithms such as S-curving or cosine smoothing by limiting the jerk and the jerk-derivative, resulting in smooth motion profiles. Configure with a mouse click. See how the RAS works on a linear axis to stop vibration.
- An engineering easy button—Eliminate vibration with a simple 1 click setup. No engineering background or servo tuning experience needed.
- Maximize machine throughput—Achieve higher throughput when compared to servo drives using S-curves or jerk limiting by accelerating faster and reducing settling time.
- Improve machine reliability—Smoother acceleration profiles and reduced vibration mean less wear on the mechanics, longer component life, and lower audible noise.
- Wide range of control options—The RAS is available in every ClearPath integrated servo, which are compatible with a wide range of controllers including PLCs, microcontrollers (like Arduinos), Windows or Linux PCs (such as Raspberry Pi), CNC machines, pushbuttons and more.
