This paper presents the effects of a virtual mass on the stability boundary of a virtual spring in the haptic system. A haptic system consists of a haptic device, a sampler, a virtual rigid body and zero-order-hold. The virtual rigid body is modeled as a virtual spring and a virtual mass. According to the virtual mass and the sampling time, the stability boundary of the virtual spring is analyzed through the simulation. As the virtual mass increases, the value of the virtual spring to guarantee the stability gradually increases and then decreases after reaching the maximum value. These simulation results show that the addition of the virtual mass enables to expand the stability boundary of the virtual spring.
