Distribution of the backlash on multiple cycles (P-AXIS-00243)

P-AXIS-00243

Distribution of the backlash on multiple cycles

Description

The parameter defines a number of positions control cycles, on which the backlash is distributed. The distribution is done according to a sin² - function.

The parameter is also used for bi-directional lead screw error compensation if a change of direction is executed.

Parameter

lr_param.n_backlash_cyc

Data type

UNS16

Data range

0 < n_backlash_cyc < 20

Axis types

T, R, S

Dimension

T: Number of interpolation cycles

R,S: Number of interpolation cycles

Default value

0

Drive types

----

Remarks

For the values 0 or 1 the output of the backlash to the drive is done abruptly within one cycle. A value larger than 1 creates a distribution according to the sin² - function.

The use of this feature avoids increasing errors at the workpiece, because for large backlash the machine excitation is reduced.
