PI’s 6-Axis C-884.6DC servo motor controller drives 6 and 4 axis motion systems.

PI (Physik Instrumente) released its C-884.6DC, a 6-axis servo motor controller. The unit 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 controller’s dual-core architecture provides separates command processing and position servo control functions. It also features point-to-point and vector motion with user-definable trajectories; a trapezoidal velocity profile and a data recorder with nonvolatile storage for motion system analysis. Software support includes LabVIEW, MATLAB, C, C++, C# and VB.NET, as well as a Python macro command language, for stand-alone operation.
