An absolute motion always moves to a specified position without being affected by the previous motion.
Absolute Motion makes it very easy for us to reach a specified destination.
- An ABSOLUTE MOVE will move the axis to position 25 rather than 25 units ahead of the current position.
- A RELATIVE MOVE will move the axis 25 units ahead of the current position, rather than to position 25.
In our API an absolute motion will let us move a single axis with a trapezoidal profile to an absolute distance.
You can change the velocity, acceleration, and deceleration of a moveSCurve that is executing on the fly simply by calling the function again with different parameters.
