Gearing FB

see Add Gearing FB


Use a Gearing FB to apply a linear function to the motion-values at the input.

You can add a constant to the input, multiply by a constant value, and add a constant to the output.

See more details below.

Open Gearing FB dialog-box

Icon-FB-Gearing

Edit the Gearing FB:

1.Double-click the Gearing FB in the graphic-area.

- or -

The Gearing FB dialog-box is now open.

The Gearing FB function is:

Output  = {1r×(Input +3r)}+ 2r

Default output :

= Input

Ratio and Phase

Red-14-1 Gearing Ratio (See also Gearing as 'Real' or 'Ratio' )

Red-14-2 Add after Gearing-Ratio

Red-14-3 Add before Gearing-Ratio


Gearing as 'Real' or 'Ratio' 

Red-14-4 Gearing as 'Real'

Enter a real number in the Gearing Ratio Red-14-1

Red-14-4 Gearing as 'Ratio'

Enter two integers in Red-14-5 & Red-14-6

Gearing RatioRed-14-1b = Input-Pulley / Output-Pulley

Red-14-5 Input-Pulley = ± All Integers, {including zero (for those that did not know that zero is an integer!)}

Red-14-6 Output-Pulley = Positive Integer ≥ 1


Notes:

Connect a Gearing FB to the input of a Motion FB to change the motion-frequency.

Connect a Motion FB to the input of a Gearing FB to change the motion-amplitude.
