How to limit the rotational velocity
2019-03-13 10:52:32 aussiesusan

I have a couple of XL430-W250-T servos that are used to drive a slightly heavy but off-centre load and I want to limit the speed the servos can rotate.

One servo is in position control mode and the other in extended position control mode.

If I want to set the maximum rotation speed to (say) 2 revolutions a minute, is this done purely through the 'velocity limit' EEPROM value?

(Sorry to ask if this is a basic question but I'm away from my for a couple of days and so I can't experiment.)

Hi Susan,

Yes, you are correct.

You can control the RPM by setting the Velocity Limit(44).

However, if you set it in the EEPROM, you'll not be able to modify the value during the motion without turning the torque off.

So, if you need to change the value during the motion, I'd recommend using the Profile Velocity(112).

Please note that the updated Profile Velocity value will be applied only when a new Goal Position is written to the RAM area.

Thank you

Thanks Willson.
The velocity is a 'set and forget' value for this situation so Velocity Limit sounds like the way to go.
