Velocity Mode

A servo drive configured for Velocity Mode turns the motor at a velocity that is proportional to the command. Small commands will generate small velocities and large commands will generate large velocities. Velocity Mode requires the use of a velocity feedback device, such as an encoder, resolver, tachometer, or Hall Sensors.

  • Encoder Velocity Mode provides the best velocity resolution over the widest range of speeds
  • Hall Velocity Mode is used in many applications where precise velocity control is not required Ð no external feedback device is necessary
