Specifies the maximum deceleration of the move in Units/s2. Setting deceleration to 0 (default) allows SoftMotion to automatically calculate the deceleration using the specified Smoothing. If you specify a value for deceleration but not acceleration SoftMotion assumes equal values for acceleration and deceleration when calculating the move profile.
|Note A different, slower deceleration is useful in applications where coming to a gentle stop is important.|
Deceleration defines how quickly the axis or axes come to a stop and is typically limited to avoid excessive stress on the motor, mechanical system, and/or load. Coordinate deceleration is calculated using the root sum of squares as follows:
Specify the units for your application using the Stepper page of the Axis Configuration dialog box for open-loop stepper axes, or the Encoder page for closed-loop stepper and servo axes. Specified units only apply when you perform moves and not when you are generating motion profiles.
