The servo amp is an Advanced Motion Controls model 25A20:
I'm setting the speed with an analog input on pins 4 & 5 ("REF"). This
is described as "Differential Reference Input (±10 V Operating Range,
±15 V Maximum Input)". My assumption was that this voltage could go to
15v, but beyond 10v there would be no additional effect on the output.
I was wrong. The output continues to increase as REF increases to 15v.
I didn't check if it was linear in the 10 - 15v range.
The question is: is it a bad idea to use it in the 10-15v range? It
might be useful to have the extra output in certain special cases. E.g.
PS - is there another NG that might be better posted to?
