Motion Control Card

600 Series




This card is an easy-to-use, plug-and-play and cost effective solution for single and multi-axis motion control applications. It may be used as a stand-alone unit or may be commanded by an external device.

This series supports up to 4 axes of motion, 16 TTL / CMOS compatible inputs, 16 TTL / CMOS compatible outputs, 3 analog inputs, and up to five optical encoder inputs. The command port is provided for stand-alone operation.

The powerful programming instructions with more than 120 commands include motion control, system configuration, data flow, program flow commands, 32-bit logical and mathematical operations, and other miscellaneous instructions.

These cards can also be operated using an analog joystick or a trackball with quadrature outputs. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick or the rotational speed of the trackball. The joystick has three speed selection keys; fast, medium and slow speed.

This controller does not accept any type of position feedback.

The module may be controlled in different ways;

1) Stand-alone
In this mode, the controller does not need an external device such as a PC to operate. The controller is programmed in a simple programming language. The code is developed, downloaded to the controller, run and saved in the controller's non-volatile memory using the supplied Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software.

2) Externally Controlled
In this mode, the external host such as a PC, micro-controller or PLC sends a series of commands to the controller via the RS-232 serial port. The controller processes and performs the incoming commands and responds with proper messages.

3) Control Panel
The supplied user friendly Control Panel software allows the user to set-up the module quickly. The operator is able to move the mechanism to different positions by pressing the corresponding buttons of the Control Panel or by using the joystick and/or trackball.
