Mechanical and simulation parameters of a machine
This block represents the mechanical environment of a machine. Mechanical and simulation parameters include gravity and a linearization delta used to compute numerical partial derivatives. Block parameters apply only to the target machine connected to the block.
The Mechanism Configuration block is optional in a machine block diagram and, if used, is needed for simulation only. If you omit it, the constant gravitational acceleration is set to zero. Each machine can connect to only one Mechanism Configuration block.
The block dialog box contains one active area, Properties.
Enter the gravitational acceleration vector, given with respect to the C port frame axes. In the drop-down menu, select a physical unit. The default is [0 0 –9.80665] m/s^2.
Enter the perturbation value used to compute numerical partial derivatives for linearization. The default value is 0.001.
