The Best Control Software for Linear Actuators and Motion Systems

Introduction

Linear actuators create motions along a straight path as opposed to circular motions produced by electric motor systems. These actuators are important in driving industrial machines, appliances and high-precision machines such as printers, disk drives and valves. To control the movement of linear actuators in complex motion systems, programmable computer software is required to determine position of the actuator controller and to adjust acceleration and deceleration of the controller. This enables transferability of the human intelligence to the controllers of linear actuator enabling accurate positioning and improved precision in controlling the motion systems. One of the best software packages, that facilitate these achievements, is the RoboNet Cylinder PC Software.

Robonet Cylinder PC Software

Robonet Cylinder PC Software is a product of the IAI America which specializes in software and hardware components for linear actuators and related linear actuator motion systems. The software contains serial communication units and program configuration software that is used to program the position and movement of the controllers that regulate movement of 12v actuators and motion systems in a machine. RC PC software allows the user to control and manipulate movement of multiple electric and related actuators using a single communication channel. An interesting consideration in regulating linear actuator controllers is in the connection of the controller to the PC component. The Robo Cylinder unit, which contains the control unit for linear actuator and motion systems connected to it, enables the user to control the linear actuators from a field network or serial communication path such as USB connections. Through these connections, the user sends commands to the actuator controller and monitors the response through a signal-tracking monitor on the screen.

The RC allows the user to send commands to the actuator controller which regulates the speed of different components of the actuator adjusting, decelerating or accelerating the motion systems of the machine. A user can reprogram the software by creating multiple tables for the position of each actuator control to send different commands to different actuator controllers. The statistics of the adjustments made to the controllers and the resulting effect on the motion systems is indicated on the columns created by the user depending on the number of actuators connected to the software. This enables identification of each actuator controller so that the user enjoys high accuracy and precision in positioning, monitoring and controlling the motion systems. IAI America introduced the new version 7 of RC PC software which incorporates ASEP, PSEP and DSEP software programs which improves functionality of the commands transmission from the PC to the motion systems via controllers. The additional software programs allow the user to back up, restore and recover data that has been recorded through the software functionality monitors. The user monitors and views records of data transmission across active and inactive linear actuators through the Graphic User Interface (GUI) component of the RC software. To ensure that users understand the functionality of RC software in terms of connections, monitoring and information storage, IAI America constantly updates information on new versions or improvements by posting demonstrative videos on social media platforms such as YouTube.
