motor control card is an
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

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.
may be controlled in different ways;
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.
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.
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.
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.
speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick
or the rotational
speed of the trackball.
