The board CPCI-8004 for the CompactPCI bus is used for the control of up to four servo or stepper motor axes through a PC.
With this intelligent and flexible board, many control tasks from simple to complicated can be realised.
The board has four stepping/direction output channels (D/A channels, 16-bit). They are isolated from the digital current supply and are used for the control of commercially available power amplifiers connected as speed controlling devices or current regulators.
Incremental encoders, SSI encoders and EnDat encoders as well as end and reference switches can be connected to each axis channel.
Digital PID filters with forward compensation and optional Notch filters or Langham controllers are also involved in the axis control.
The "open" controlling concept of the CPCI-8004 is intended in the first place for manufacturers of special-purpose machines and users which need a flexible integration as well as a CNC solution.
Intelligent board based on a 64-bit RISC processor
Positioning of up to 4 axes either with servo or stepper motors. Mixed operating of servo and stepper motors possible.
Interface for all commercially available power amplifiers
A multiple-axis system can be realised by inserting several CPCI-8004 in the same PC.
Linear, circular, helical, spline and CAD interpolation
Point-to-point movement with independent control of each axis
Programming through a PC application software or stand-alone
