MEIFilterGainIndex is an enumeration for the gain index used in gain scheduling.

In standard firmware, only
     MEIFilterGainIndexDECEL, and
are used. The gain index that is currently used can be found with mpiFilterGainIndexGet(...).

Gain Scheduling is a feature that switches filter gains for the acceleration, deceleration, constant velocity, and idle states of motion. The post filters are not affected by gain scheduling. Standard algorithms are used with gain scheduling (PID, PIV). To change the gain scheduling type from NONE (uses only the gains in gain table index 0), use MEIFilterConfig. GainSwitchType is set with mpiFilterConfigSet(...).

When setting filter gain parameters using mpiFilterGainGet(...) and mpiFilterGainSet(...), use the gain index value to write to a gain index of your choosing.


MEIFilterGainIndexNO_MOTION No commanded motion. Trajectory parameters Velocity, Acceleration, and Jerk equal zero.
MEIFilterGainIndexACCEL Acceleration portion of the commanded move.
MEIFilterGainIndexDECEL Deceleration portion of the commanded move.
MEIFilterGainIndexVELOCITY Constant velocity portion of the commanded move. Gain switching is configured by setting the GainSwtichType, GainDelay, and GainWindow in the MEIFilterConfig{...} structure and calling mpiFilterConfigGet/Set(...). The GainSwitchType has the following options:
