Initial base of position control


Thread Starter


I begin to do position control mechanical system. Where I may get information? I know much theory about automatic control, electronic, programming but not have practice. I need that information: how choose motors(stepper, DC or other), position sensors(resolver, incremental encoder or other) etc. For control I want to do numeric control controller that connect to computer. How choose resolution(precision)(16-bit or other), based on DSP or multi-purpose microprocessor, what consider for correct interfacing to program on main computer(for use standard numeric control format) etc. Are there any books about this? Or Internet sites?

Thanks for any useful information.
