Enhancing the Prodigy motion-control card family are additional features and peripherals that promise to simplify programming and connectivity. All Prodigy/CME controllers now include user accessible on-board non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM). The upgrade to NVRAM allows users to store configuration parameters, program variables, and other data directly on the card rather than loading them during power up. Adding to the facelift, the IM-600 interconnect module eases interfacing motion peripherals to the Prodigy card. The module connects to the Prodigy’s option connector and pulse-and-direction connector, thereby providing jack screw breakout functionality. Also, the IM-600 features a DIN mountable package for easy panel mounting. PERFORMANCE MOTION DEVICES INC., Lincoln, MA. (781) 674-9860.
