The stepper motor control 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.

This card 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.

The card may be controlled in different ways;

1) Stand-alone Operation of Step Motor Control Card
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 Control Operation of Step Motor Control Card
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) Operating the Step Motor Control Card Using the Supplied 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.

4) Operator Interface Terminal
The terminal allows the user to operate the controller without needing an PC, PLC or host controller. The user friendly interface design allows the user to enter the motion parameters and make the move.

The card can also be operated using an analog joystick or a trackball. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick or the rotational speed of the trackball.
