C-867 PILine® Motion Controller
For Ultrasonic Piezomotors, 1 and 2 Axes

  • For PILine® ultrasonic piezo linear motors
  • 50-MHz encoder inputs for high velocity and position resolution
  • USB, RS-232 and analog interfaces (e.g. for a joystick)
  • Integrated power amplifier with dynamic frequency control
  • PID servo-control with dynamic parameter switching
  • 4+4 programmable TTL I/Os for flexible automation
  • Daisy-chain network of up to 16 units
  • Data recorder
  • Powerful macro programming language, e.g. for standalone operation
  • Extensive software support, e.g. for LabVIEW, shared libraries for Windows and Linux
The two-channel C-867.260 controller serves to control XY scanning stages, as in this case a customized M-686 stage for microscopy
