Digital controller for 6-axis parallel kinematics

Features control for two additional single axes with servo motors. Options: Control of piezo axes, photometer cards for visible light or infrared light range

Functions

Real-time system. Position control using Cartesian coordinates, vectorized motion. Stable, virtual pivot point can be defined freely in the working space. Data recorder for recording operating parameters such as motor control, velocity, position or position error. Macro command language. Stand-alone operation possible with Autostart macro or connection of keyboard and monitor. Optional: Manual control unit

Custom designs

Custom designs are available for use at high altitudes, e.g. for astronomical telescope applications. Evaluation of absolute-measuring sensors. Control of motor brakes. Evaluation of additional (redundant) position sensors for increased safety requirements, e.g. in medical technology

Extensive software

PIMikroMove user software. Common command set for all PI positioning systems. Dynamic libraries for Windows and Linux. Complete set of LabVIEW VI’s. Graphical user interfaces, configuration software and graphically displayed scan routines. Optional: PIVeriMove software for checking a restricted operating space

Interfaces

TCP/IP Ethernet can also be used for remote control and service, RS-232. Monitor, mouse and keyboard interface. On request: RS-422 for up to 1.4 km cable length
