MOTIONEERING(TM) is a Windows-based software tool that allows the motion-control designer to choose an application; define a motion profile; and select the optimum servomotor, amplifier, and power supply. The software's database of motor types includes dc servo, brushless servo, direct-drive linear and rotary, and vector ac. A key feature of the software is the "project" approach where multiple axes of motion and their product solution are combined. This allows power supply and shunt regeneration calculations to be done based on the simultaneous operation of multiple axes.
