Irvine, Calif. Embedded computing board maker ADLINK Technology Inc. has developed a 4-axis stepper motor control card with four pulse output channels.
According to ADLINK, the PCI-8144 delivers high-frequency pulse rates of up to 2.4 MHz to support high-speed motors at higher resolutions with faster acceleration. Up to 12 PCI-8144 control cards can be configured to control up to 48 axes from a single host system. The PCI-8144 also offers precise synchronization across all axes to ensure simultaneous starts and stops for accurate motion of complex systems.
The PCI-8144 supports T-curve and S-curve speed profiles, as well as unsymmetrical acceleration and deceleration to fit a variety of applications that require fast control with smooth motion. The PCI-8144 also supports the on-the-fly speed changes necessary for CNC machining automation.
A hardware-based emergency stop control is provided to halt the transmission of pulse trains during an emergency. The PCI-8144 also features a software security mechanism to protect your motion control applications.
Software drivers for Windows and ADLINK's intuitive motion control utility, MotionCreatorPro, are included to test and debug tasks.
The PCI-8144 is available from authorized ADLINK distributors and direct sales offices.
