Position Mode

The position loop regulates the position of the motor or system. In Position Mode, feedback such as an encoder or resolver ensures that the actual position is equal to the commanded position. The position loop compensates for position errors by applying more torque to push the system back into position.

  • Network traffic can be greatly reduced if the drive closes the position loop using distributed control
  • Position Mode can eliminate the need for a controller in single-axis or multiple single-axis applications
