ACS Motion Control's Advanced ServoBoost algorithm provides significant throughput enhancement by minimizing settling time and can adapt to large load changes and disturbances. Courtesy: ACS Motion ControlACS Motion Control's ServoBoost algorithm provides automatic adaptation to large load changes and automatic compensation for disturbances, resonances, axes interaction, cogging and more in real-time. The ServoBoost algorithm identifies disturbances in real time, analyzes the root cause, compensates for it, and attenuates its impact. The result is decreased move and settle time, ability to handle significant changes in load, and elimination of cogging and similar issues, which provides an increase in accuracy, throughput and overall performance. 

Designed for equipment that requires high accuracy and performance, including state-of-the-art semiconductor inspection, flat panel inspection, electronics assembly and bio-medical automated analysis systems, the ServoBoost algorithm enables extremely fast settling time and standstill jitter in the sub-nanometer region. The ServoBoost algorithm combines smooth and constant velocity with stability to provide a high level of control.

Available as a plug-in feature, the ServoBoost algorithm can be ordered with ACS motion control products or as an upgrade at a later date.
