Physik Instrumente releases C-885 motion controller system

April 21, 2016 –PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. released a motion controller system – the C-885 PIMotionMaster – that allows users to integrate different drive technologies from servo and stepper motors to piezo-ceramic motors, all via one interface and software suite.

All-In-One, Automatic Detection

The C-885 is a modular system, available in 2 sizes, which can house 4 to 20 controller frames (8 to 40 channels). The digital processor and interface module operate as a communication hub between the C-885 and a PC, occupying one module slot.

The CAN bus connection provides excellent synchronicity of all positioning systems connected to the controller.

Plug & Play for Multiple Types of Motors

After the modules are installed in the rack, individual axis configuration and movement is set-up using the included PIMikroMove software, a Windows GUI that does not require programming knowledge. Modules are currently available for PI translation/rotation stages equipped with DC motors or brushless DC motors, stepper motors, ultrasonic ceramic motor-driven stages and ultra-high precision PiezoWalk motor-equipped nanopositioners.

Applications of C-885 PIMotionMaster

Fields of applications include precision motion control in automation, nanopositioning, photonics, semiconductor testing, laser machining.
