5.3.6. Synchronization settings

In the Application settings Device -> TTL sync


Synchronization settings window

Synchronization is described in details in TTL synchronization section.

Sync in:

  • Clutter time - setting minimum synchronization pulse duration (in microseconds). Defines the minimum duration, which can be detected (anti-chatter).
  • Enabled - check this box for the sync in mode enable.
  • Invert - checked flag shows that the operation is triggered by the falling sync pulse edge.
  • Absolute position - if the flag is checked, upon sync pulse the stage moves into the absolute position specified in the field Step/Micro step. If the flag is unchecked, the shift is relative to the defined destination position.
  • Speed - the speed to use when moving.

Sync out:

  • The Synchronization Output can be used as a “General purpose Output signal”.
  • Enabled - if the flag is checked, the sync output functions according to the next settings. If the flag is unchecked, the output value is fixed and equal to the Fixed state.
  • Invert - if the flag is checked the zero logic level is set to active.
  • Pulse width - specifies the duration of the output signal in milliseconds or steps/encoder pulses.
  • Fixed state - sets the logic level of output to 0 or 1, respectively.
  • On start - synchronizing pulse is generated at the beginning of movement.
  • On stop - synchronizing pulse is generated at the end of movement.
  • Every - synchronizing pulse is generated every n encoder pulses.
  • Accuracy - distance to the target position. As soon as the distance to target on approach is less than or equal to this distance a synchronizing pulse will be generated if “on stop” option is used.
