Step motors are a common solution for controlling the position of moving components. This paper looks at step motor control design options and provides an in-depth review of a closed-loop motion control system.
This deep dive provides a detailed look at design choices, such as using off-the-shelf motion boards versus integrated machine control boards, for building a machine controller that provides advanced precision motion control.
