Delta Computer Systems has updated the Plot Manager feature of its RMCTools software for the RMC70 one- and two-axis and RMC150 multi-axis motion controllers. The Plot Manager is designed to facilitate tuning and optimizing of machines by displaying graphs of target and actual values for axis position, velocity, acceleration, pressure, force and other parameters over time.
With the updated version of the software, plots open within the RMCTools environment to enable smoother development workflow. In addition, the interface has been simplified to make it easier to produce and inspect motion plots. Users can zoom in or out with the mouse wheel in both captured-plot mode and real-time trend mode. For traceability, reporting and comparison needs, plots can be saved or exported in different file types for use in programs such as Microsoft Excel.
