Compact Package combines stepper motor, controller, driver.
December 1, 2006 -
SMC-Pollux integrates 2-phase stepper motor with micro-stepping driver and DSP-based motion controller. Latter utilizes multi-drop serial interface that allows daisy chaining of up to 16 axes. Smooth motion results from micro-stepping rate of up to 5,000 microsteps per full-step, which also minimizes mechanical resonances. Offered with various stepper motors of various torque levels, SMC-Pollux facilitates integration into numerous motion applications.

MICOS Introduces Stepper Motor, Controller and Driver in a Compact Package
MICOS USA, a leading supplier of precision motion control technology, announces the introduction of the SMC-Pollux motor/controller/driver package to the North American market.
The SMC-Pollux integrates a 2 phase stepper motor with a micro-stepping driver and a DSP based motion controller. The motion controller utilizes a multi-drop serial interface that allows daisy chaining of up to 16 axes.
As a result of the ultra-high micro-stepping rate of up to 5000 microsteps per full-step, motion is extremely smooth and as a result, mechanical resonances are kept to a minimum.
With a portfolio of several stepper motors offering various torque levels, SMC-Pollux allows easy integration into numerous motion applications. Our popular VT-80 and DT-80 stages are available as standard products with integrated SMC-Pollux (other products can be integrated on request).
