  • New Piezo Tuning Wizard

National Instruments Corp.Request Info
Piezo Tuning Wizard National Instruments (NI) extends the power of LabVIEW and motion control software with the new Piezo Tuning Wizard. Using this free LabVIEW application, motion control developers can easily tune and control piezo-based motors for high-precision applications.

The Piezo Tuning Wizard gives developers the power to eliminate unwanted velocity spikes and reduce oscillations. This tool also reduces development time with an easy-to-use interface for characterizing and tuning piezo motors, and helps developers take advantage of the new static friction compensation feature in the NI-Motion 5.2 driver software. Without compensation, static friction develops between two stationary surfaces, slowing responsiveness and building potentially unstable systems.

However, when developers combine the NI-Motion 5.2 static friction compensation feature with the Piezo Tuning Wizard, they can create high-precision piezomotor applications with steady target positioning and quick reaction time.

By adding NI Motion Assistant point-and-click configurable software, developers can quickly create motion profiles for a wide variety of high-precision applications.
