3dRudder Wireless adds a fourth axis of motion
for total VR immersion while leaving hands free to use other devices and experience the full wonder of VR.
* Integrated Stepper Motor Controller + Drive: Each module provides 1 axis of motion
with encoder feedback, allowing you to expand up to 6 axes of motion control on one connection.
Each servo, and the mechanism it moves, is an axis of motion
. Whether or not the motion of one servo is mechanically related or connected to the motion of another servo, each servo is called an axis.
While the raw speed of an ASRS along each axis of motion
is limited by the selected drives' components, modern sensor technology--the eyes of the ASRS--allows designers to coordinate positioning motion, increasing the effective speed of the ASAR.
This kind of simulation can generate thousands of measurement points along each axis of motion
. These can now automatically be fed into the machine design simulation that links right through to the CAD design program.
There is a fourth axis of motion
, which is the wrist rotation.
It has individual servo motors for each axis of motion
and speeds up to about 15 ft/sec.
The Moog Digital Drive (MDD1-0710) is a software based drive that uses advanced computer chips to control single or multiple axis of motion
up to 700 watts with a 10.8 to 70 v DC bus voltage range.
Stanley's Klostermeyer says an IAD with a single axis of motion
ranges in cost from $10,000 to $12,000, and roughly twice that amount for two axes of motion.
For each axis of motion
, the displacement threshold was plotted in polar coordinates.
Additional features/capabilities include an additional axis of motion
and coordinated linear and circular interpolated commands.
One Rexroth IACR proportional hydraulic valve is assigned to each rolling axis of motion
on the machine.
