How to do scaling on the P-Series Indexer Drive: P-Series Indexer Scaling Product Note
To simplify, to achieve desired User Units:
Motor Revolutions - Your PPR. The increments on your encoder per one shaft revolution.
Shaft Revolutions - The output of your mechanics.
- If you have a leadscrew of 10mm, without a gearbox, your denominator here is 10 to achieve User Units of mm.
- If you have a gearbox of 25:1 without a leadscrew (or a pulley), your denominator here is 25 to achieve User Units of revolutions on the gearbox output.
