Product Description Specifications Downloads Quote / Order
  • PID servo control with dynamic parameter switching
  • Powerful macro programming language, e.g., for stand-alone operation
  • Data recorder
  • Integrated interfaces: USB, RS-232, Ethernet, SPI, I/O, joystick
  • Trajectory support for 1- or 2–D motion patterns

Digital motion controller for DC servo motors

4 or 6 axes. Dual-core architecture for increased performance and flexibility by separating command processing and position control. Simple adaptation / extension possible for OEM products. Motion control of PI positioning systems with DC motors: Direct motor control, PWM control for PI positioning stages with integrated ActiveDrive amplifiers or integrated block commutation (brushless motors). Supports motor brake.

Motion profiles

Point-to-point, trapezoidal velocity profile. User-definable trajectories (e.g., circles, sine curves) from externally fed points.

Interfaces and communication

Interfaces: TCP/IP, USB and RS-232 for commands. A/B quadrature encoder input. TTL inputs for limit and reference point switches. I/O lines (analog/digital) for automation. USB interface for human interface devices.

Extensive functions, software support

Powerful macro command language. Nonvolatile macro storage, e.g., for stand-alone operation with autostart macro. Data recorder. ID chip detection for fast startup. PID controller, parameter changing during operation. Extensive software support, e.g., for NI LabVIEW, C, C++, MATLAB, Python. PIMikroMove user software.
