The servo gain factor is defined as the ratio of velocity in m/min and the
resulting following error in mm
i.e. with a Kv factor of 1 and a velocity of 1 m/min, the following error will be
MD32200: POSCTRL_GAIN[n] (loop gain)
is used to specify the Kv factor of the machine axis.
To adapt the input/output unit of the Kv factor selected by default to the internal
unit [1/sec], the following machine data are assigned by default:
MD 10230: SCALING_FACTORS_USER_DEF = 16.666667
MD 10220: SCALING_USER_DEF_MASK = 'H200'; (bit no. 9 as a hex-
When entering the servo gain factor, take into account that the amplification
factor of the entire position control loop is also dependent on other parameters
of the controlled system.
These factors are:
Tacho adjustment on the speed controller
Tacho generator on drive.
Machine axis that interpolate one with another must have the same following
error at the same velocities.
This can be achieved by setting the same K
The real servo gain factor can be checked with the following error in the service
