Stopping Rates

What are Stopping Rates?

Stopping rates dictate how quickly your motor/axis stops spinning when a STOP or ESTOP command is issued.

Stopping Rates

When a STOP or ESTOP command is issued, the motion controller will slow the axis to stop in the given time frame. This time frame can be adjusted to fit the needs of your application. You can change the STOP and ESTOP time through RapidCode (shown in the sample application below) or under the “Configuration” tab in RapidSetup (shown directly below).

Deceleration Rates

When a RSIAction*MODIFY* (RSIActionE_STOP_MODIFY_ABORT, RSIAction_E_STOP_MODIFY, RSIActionTRIGGERED_MODIFY) the motion controller will slow the axis to a stop with a specified deceleration rate and percent jerk. You can change the EStopDeceleration, TriggeredModifyDeceleration, EstopJerkPercent, and TriggeredModifyJerkPercent through RapidCode.
