PCI Cards Control Motion Using Multi-Processing Architecture

April 1, 2001

A line of motion-control PCI cards is based on the company's modular multi-processing architecture consisting of a motherboard and up to eight modules. The cards are designed to control ac/dc servo, stepper and I/O functions, with each PCI module including its own DSP to ensure consistent and reliable axis performance and to remove burdens from the central processor.
The modules can be dedicated to a single axis or they can be configured for dual-axis control. The PCI cards can also be configured to control from one to sixteen axes. The cards are fully programmable in C, C++, Visual Basic, Delphi and LabVIEW.
