Programming Software For Motion Controllers
Position, Velocity, Time Software
Galil's PVT Software is a software tool that is used to convert Galil Contour Data points to Galil Position Velocity and Time (PVT) profiles. PVT mode allows arbitrary motion profiles to be defined by position, velocity and time individually on all 8 axes. This motion is designed for systems where the load must traverse a series of coordinates with no discontinuities in velocity. By specifying the target position, velocity and time to achieve those parameters the user has control over the velocity profile. Taking advantage of the built in buffering the user can create virtually any profile including those with infinite path lengths.
Along with the ability to convert Contour Data to PVT profiles, the PVT software allows the user to graph position, velocity, acceleration and jerk for multiple axes and download the PVT data directly from the application to the controller. The full version (password required) includes the ability to save the PVT data in a .csv format. PVT is a standard feature on the DMC-40x0 series.
