Advantech Launches 4-Axis Stepping and Servo Motor Control Universal PCI Card



(Cincinnati, Ohio - 4/10/08) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the PCI-1240U 4-axis stepping/pulse-type servo motor control card designed for general purpose extreme motion applications. The card has a NOVA® MCX314-motion ASIC that builds in a variety of motion control functions, such as a 2/3-axis linear interpolation, 2-axis circular interpolation, T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration rate, and much more. In addition, the PCI-1240U performs these motion controls without processor loading during driving.

Other features include: hand wheel and jog function, up to 4 MPPS output for each axis, two pulse output types (CW/CCW or pulse/direction), up to 1 MHz encoder input for each axis, two encoder pulse input types (A/B phase and up/down), constant speed control, position management and software limit switch function, and BoardID switch.

For advanced applications, Windows DLL drivers and user-friendly examples to decrease programming load can be provided. To purchase or if you have any questions, please contact Advantech at 1-800-205-7940 or your regional Advantech authorized dealer for more information.
