What is soft motion?
Soft motion is real-time motion control software: a PC-based motion control in which a single PC performs all real-time motion control operations including feedback loops and multi-axis coordination, and the servo loops are entirely closed in the CPU. Soft CNC is a type of soft motion that includes industry-standard CNC functions and features, such as G code processing, NC path generation and a traditional CNC graphical user interface.TOP Q: What is soft PLC? A: Soft PLC is real-time PLC software: a PC-based programmable logic controller in which a single PC monitors and controls the machine or machine tool based on inputs and outputs. Soft PLC runs on the same PC as the soft motion control, and is tightly integrated with soft motion to provide a single motion/machine control application.TOP Q: How different is soft CNC from conventional PC-based NC? A: In conventional PC-based NC, the PC is used only as the operator’s interface and expensive motion control boards are actually used for
