Aerotech Motion Simulator – The Integrated,
Easy to Use, Graphical Trajectory Generation,
Data Analysis and Enhanced Machine
Performance Toolkit.
Aerotech’s Motion Simulator software is an easy-to-use Windows®-based program
for creating simple and advanced motion stimuli for testing and calibrating inertial
sensors and systems. The Aerotech Motion Simulator software includes all controls
for manually or automatically running 1-3 axis motion simulations. The GUI provides
a user interface and programming environment that requires no third-party
development software.
Key Features:
• User-friendly Windows®-based graphical user
interface
• Trajectory tracking from Ethernet, analog or
Windows® program inputs
• Iterative Learning minimizes position error
• Overlap multiple runs of a trajectory to easily
see how program changes modify the motion
• Perform data analysis such as FFT, max, min,
average, rms and standard deviation from an
existing trajectory for diagnosing system
performance
• Data input file formats include Excel, CSV or
MATLAB®; Motion Simulator can calculate the
missing state variables

Standard Control Capabilities
46
Point-to-Point Motion
Basic
independent axis
positioning with
programmable
accel/decel and
feedrate.
Acceleration Limiting
Anticipate sharp
corners and
small radius
arcs and
automatically
decelerate as
needed.
Coordinated Motion
Linear and
circular motions
are supported in
all languages.
Arbitrary Path Generation
(PVT)
Specify discrete
position, velocity
and time and the
controller will
interpolate to
create a smooth,
contiguous path.
Electronic Gearing
Electronically
control one axis
as a simple ratio
or as a complex
function of
another axis; fire
I/O in real time
during a move.
On the Fly
End-Point Modification
Modify the
endpoint during
execution of the
motion profile.
Cutter Compensation
Also known as
tool radius
compensation,
this feature
automatically
adjusts the path
to allow for the
radius of a
cutting tool.
Parts Rotation
Use when a twodimensional part
must be
repeated in
different
orientations
without
translating the
part program
many times over.
Velocity Profiling
Maintains a
constant vector
velocity along
the programmed
path.
www.aerotech.com
Aerotech controllers offer the broadest array of programming interfaces and core
motion capabilities of any automation system available today. Aerotech controllers
have the programming flexibility and capability to meet the requirements of the
most demanding motion applications of OEMs and end-users alike.
Seven Segment
Acceleration
Specify the
acceleration
profile in seven
segments,
providing precise
control over
system motion.
Velocity Blending
The velocity
changes to the
next velocity
command,
acceleration
limited, without
stopping.
Fast Position Capture
Store positions
based on the
transition of a
digital input,
allowing close
correlation of
axis positions to
external events.
Retrace
Retrace a path
block by block.
Intra-Block Retrace
Retrace a path
inside a block.
High-Speed Registration
High-speed
registration to
trigger motion
is useful in
packaging and
labeling.
Gantry Mode
Complex gantry
control is
reduced to a few
simple
commands to
handle dual
motor and/or
dual feedback
configurations.
Kinematics
Execute
complex
inverse
kinematic
equations
within the flow
of the
trajectory
generation.
Analog Power Control
Adjust the setting
of an analog
output in
relationship to
the vector speed
of two axes to
permit the
automatic
regulation of laser
power or material
dispensing
processes.

Standard Control Capabilities
48
Motor Control
All controllers
operate brush,
brushless or
stepper motors in
any combination.
Orthogonality Correction
Improve X-Y
planar accuracy
by simply
entering the
known
orthogonality
error and the
controller will
compensate.
Axis Calibration
Compensate
for repeatable
mechanical
errors in a
positioning
system.
Sinusoidal Commutation
Brushless motors
produce
smoothest
motion when
sinusoidally
commutated,
eliminating the
need for multiple
transducers and
reducing cabling.
3D Error Correction
Measure XYZ
errors and the
controller can
correct the
commanded
position to
accurately move
to all locations in
the 3D space.
Dual-Loop Control
Dual-loop control
is used to
eliminate the
effects of
backlash and
other sources of
error.
Quadrature Encoder
Use a standard
A,B quadrature
encoder,
incremental or
absolute.
Analog Feedback
For high
resolution, short
travel
applications,
linear drives
accept analog
inputs from
analog sensors.
Resolver/Inductosyn
Programmable
carrier
frequencies
make resolvers/
inductosyns easy
to integrate.
www.aerotech.com
Laser Interferometer
Systems
requiring
ultra-high
resolution
and feedback
stability use
interferometer
feedback.
Encoder
Systems requiring
high resolution
use a 1 Vpp
encoder with
Aerotech
multiplier, up to
65,536 and
2 MHz input
frequency.
Tachometer
For dual
feedback systems
use tach for
velocity control
and encoder for
position control.
PIDFF
PID digital
control loop with
feedforward for
velocity,
acceleration and
friction.
Safe Zones
Safe zones can
be set up on
multi-axis systems
to protect against
crashes.
Slice Move
Increase
scanning
throughput by
blending step
and scan into a
contoured move.
Limits
Set up hard limits
and soft limits for
maximum safety
and flexibility.
Spindle Control
Spindle
commands use
standard
m-codes.
CAM Profiling
Electronically
command one
axis position as a
function of
another axis with
a CAM table
and fire I/O
during the move.

Array-Based Firing
• PSO fire points are defined in
an array based on calibrated position
• Pulse train specified with absolute or
incremental positions

Lower Limit
Window Output
• Output pulses are constrained inside a userdefined window with the first pulse relative
to the edge of the window
• Excellent when the processing of a part
requires the axes to move beyond the part
for settling or direction reversal in
applications such as flat-panel
manufacturing or fuel-injector drilling
Fixed Distance Firing
Consistent
spacing of
pulses
regardless of
velocity through
the contour
• Single- or multiple-pulse output as a function
of up to 3 axes' position feedback
• Minimizes heat-affected zone in welding,
cutting and drilling
• Outstanding for stent manufacturing, hermetic
welding and drilling holes in turbine blades
