Van Nuys, CA - This motion control system is stand-alone or externally controlled, easy-to-use, plug-and-play and cost effective solution for motion control applications.

Each system includes the power supplies, controller, the servo motor drivers.

This motion control system supports up to 4 axes of motion, 16 TTL / CMOS inputs, 16 TTL / CMOS outputs, 3 analog inputs, and 4 optical encoder inputs. The command port is provided for stand-alone operation.

The system may be controlled in different ways;

1) Stand-alone

In this mode, the controller does not need an external device such as a PC to operate. The controller is programmed in a simple programming language. The code is developed, downloaded to the controller, run and saved in the controller's non-volatile memory using the supplied Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software.

2) Externally Controlled

In this mode, the external host such as a PC, micro-controller or PLC sends a series of commands to the controller via the RS-232 serial port. The controller processes and performs the incoming commands and responds with proper messages.

3) Control Panel

The supplied user friendly Control Panel software allows the user to set-up the module quickly. The operator is able to move the mechanism to different positions by pressing the corresponding buttons of the Control Panel or by using the joystick and/or trackball.

The system can also be operated using an analog joystick or a trackball. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick or the rotational speed of the trackball.

The Linear Motor Actuators do not need commutation. The non-commuted motor construction increases reliability. The direct coupling of the motor to the load allows for fast acceleration / deceleration and high speed operation.

Each actuator is integrated with a quadrature position sensor, inner limit, outer limit and home switch.

MotiCont Linear actuators are available in 4 standard sizes For Data Sheets and complete specifications go to Additionally, customized solutions can be provided upon request.
