Motion control is a sub-field of automation. That means the position and/or velocity of machines are controlled using some type of device such as a hydraulic pump, linear actuator, or an electric motor, generally a servo. Motion control is highly customizable to fit a variety of production requirements.
Motion control tools are vital to production, while also posing risks to operators around them. This requires a variety of safety features within those motion control tools, such as limit switches and I/O channels.
