Velocity Sensing-The Parameter for a Complete Tape Transport Motion Control

Document Thumbnail

The use of reel-velocity sensing to improve the multimode handling of a two-inch tape transport is discussed. Operation in play, idle, runout, and fast modes is detailed. Also, considerations in using velocity and position information for non-overshoot automatic rewinds to a pre-selected location are detailed, with emphasis on approach-slope requirements for human-like operation.
