Advice on acceleration and velocity settings for servos
« on: September 11, 2014, 08:28:21 AM »
Hi All

I wanted to refine my servo tuning in Mach3. Sometimes I get servo errors. I have not found
any helpful information with internet searches regarding acceleration and velocity settings for
servos. My servos are dc brush 850 oz in motors from Dan Mauch at camtronics. The z and y
axes are geared down with timing pulleys in a 3 to 1.  I must admit I never got around to setting
up a reduction on the x axis. I just installed and have working the Ethernet smooth stepper. I`m
hoping this addition to the machine will improve the servo performance. The encoders are US Digital
250 line.

My current acceleration and velocity setting in Mach3
X axis accel:   24.0--vel: 125
Y axis accel:   20.0--vel: 100
Z axis accel:   8.95--vel: 84
