How to set Scaling for Parker Mechanics

The PAC allows users to program moves in user units.

Scaling for each axis is located on the SoftMotion Drive: Scaling/Mapping tab.

Scaling is set by 3 steps:

1. Defining the motor's feedback resolution/increments.

2. Input the gearhead ratio

3. Input the ratio for application units (numerator & denominator).

Parker motors are offered with a wide range of feedback types and resolutions.

Gearheads and linear actuators & stages are offered with a wide range of screw leads and gearhead ratios.

The PAC_Scaling_Parker_Mechanics.pdf explains how to set the scaling for Parker mechanics.
