GLOSSARY
backlash
In a mechanical system, any lost motion between driving and driven elements due to clearance between parts.
hysteresis
This term literally means "to lag behind.'' It is quite often used to describe the residual effect that remains after the primary effect has been removed, or the lag that exists between the responding parameter and the changing parameter; can be seen in stress-strain and magnetizing force-magnetic field relationships.
repeatability
The degree to which a predetermined or previous setting of a positioning device can be duplicated by observance of the optical phenomena.
resolution
1. In optics, the ability of a lens system to reproduce the points, lines and surfaces in an object as separate entities in the image. 2. The minimum adjustment increment effectively achievable by a positioning mechanism. 3. In image processing, the accuracy with which brightness, spatial parameters and frame rate are divided into discrete levels.
