The interface between a motion controller and drive it controls is critical when coordinated motion is required, as it must provide tight synchronization. All open interfaces were analog until 1991 before SERCOS introduced the its first digital interface.
Motion control functions aided by digital interface advances are:
- Force control
- Gearing control
- Position Control
- Robotic control
- Velocity control
Digital interfaces include:
