New 6-Axis Precision Motion Controller for High Resolution Linear and Rotary Stages and Custom Multi-Axis Motion Systems

PIs servo motor controller is compact, cost efficient and also available in a 4 axes version

Precision positioning systems industry leader PI (Physik Instrumente) has released a new 6-axis servo motor controller - the C-884.6DC. Most modern precision motion systems are driven by servo motors, because they provide high torque, fast acceleration, smooth motion with a wide dynamic speed range, and fast start stop performance.

Versatile, Compact Motion Controller
PIs compact C-884 DC motion controller can run brushless servo motors and traditional DC motors with closed loop feedback provided by incremental encoders and absolute encoders (BiSS protocol). USB, TCP/IP and RS-232 interfaces are standard for command communication. Additional interfaces such as programmable analog and digital I/O lines, an SPI display port and joystick port are also included.
The dual-core architecture provides for increased performance and flexibility by separating command processing and position servo control functions.
Features and Benefits
