|Question:||Can the PID in the V7 Drive be used for positioning? |
|Answer:||No. The output of the PID regulator in the V7 Drive is a unidirectional frequency (speed) command. Bidirectional speed control is necessary to do positioning. The drive must be able to approach the target by using bi-directional speed control. A separate position loop controller may be used to provide the V7 with a bi-polar speed reference/error signal that can allow the V7 to zero in on position. Basically an outer-position loop is needed to control the speed of the V7 for position loop control.|
Note: Earlier versions of the V7 Drive were named GPD 315/V7, GPD 315 or VS Mini V7.
