ACS introduces MCR-4 multi-axis stepping motor controller

September 1, 2015 - Advanced Control Systems introduces the MCR-4, rack mount 4-Axis intelligent motion integrated stepping motor controller that drives and controls 4 (four) 2-phase stepping motors with phase currents from 0.25 to 3.0Amps/phase, simultaneously.

The MCR-4 controller performs indexing functions without the need of a host computer, or can operate under the direction of a host. The MCR-4 ’s internal non-volatile memory will store and execute a programmed instruction set.

High efficiency, low noise motor drivers of the MCR-4 provide ideal remote control for multi-axis positioners, beamline shutters and other laboratory control instrumentation.

MCR-4 Controller Features:

  • Powers, Drives and Controls up to 4 (four) 2-Phase Stepping Motors with Stepping Rates up to 50,000 Steps/Sec.
  • Adjustable Motor Winding Current 0.25 – 3.0 Amps/Phase
  • High Efficiency, Low Noise Motor Drivers Designed for Laboratory Applications
  • Nonvolatile Memory for Control Variables & Comprehensive Motion Instruction Set
  • Quick Adjust Front Panel Controls for Setting & Changing Motor Current, Idle Current and Stepping Mode
  • Front Panel LED Indicators for Home, Limits and Motor Busy Status
  • Certified Scientific Software – spec and EPICS Driver Support
  • Ethernet & RS-232 Serial Communications
  • Optional External Manual Jog Control
