Nippon Pulse Introduces Four-Axis FMAX Box Controller with Built-in Driver

Nippon Pulse is excited to announce its first box-level controller to join its chip and board controller product lines. The FMAX-4X-2SD is a box controller for up to four axes of movement, with built-in servo drivers for the X and Y axes. The X and Y axes can control rotary and linear brushless motors, such as Nippon Pulse’s Linear Shaft Motor servo; the Z and U axes can control other types of motors by connecting additional drivers.

The FMAX controller is capable of performing 2-4 axis linear interpolation and 2 axis circular interpolation. It also features 13 types of homing, on-the-fly speed and positioning adjustments, absolute and incremental positioning, and S-curve and trapezoidal motion profiles.

The FMAX is ideal for controlling applications that involve linear stages and robotics, including microscopes, scanners and other high-performance applications. The controller box can be built into a fully functioning two-axis system with just a power supply, motor and cable. It can also function as a standalone unit, with a USB connection to a PC, or with a joystick for jog applications.
