TIME CONSIDERATIONS FOR DIGITAL PLOTTERS

IN AUTOMATED PLOTTERS, CRITICAL CONDITIONS OCCUR IN THOSE OPERATIONS THAT REQUIRE RAPID MOTIONS IN THE MECHANICAL TRACKING (TRACING) DEVICES. IF TRACKING IS CONTROLLED IN A FULLY DIGITAL MANNER, THEN THE FREQUENCY OF SAMPLING, COMPUTING, AND ACTUATING THE MOTION IS HIGH, DEMANDING HIGH DYNAMIC CAPABILITY. CONDITIONS ARE CONSIDERABLY BETTER IN HYBRID SYSTEMS WHERE ONLY SMALL DIFFERENTIAL DISPLACEMENTS ARE CONTROLLED DIGITALLY. FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE INSTRUMENT DESIGNER, HYBRID SYSTEMS SEEM TO BE MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN FULLY DIGITAL CONTROLLED SYSTEMS. /AUTHOR/
