Two new 6-axis motion controllers are now available for PI’s new H-series hexapod precision positioner family (H-206 to H-850). The new C-887.21 compact controller is a space-saving bench-top unit that also reduces the system cost. It provides the same performance as the larger, C-887.11 controller. This 19″ rack-mount unit adds two additional channels for the control of two more motion axes (such as linear positioners, rotation stages) and can also be upgraded with a number of options such as manual control and photometer cards.
Real-time vector motion control system
Both units are real-time motion controllers providing vectorized motion output and position command input based on Cartesian coordinates. A random, virtual pivot point can be defined freely anywhere in the working space. In addition the controllers provide data recorder functionality for recording operating parameters such as motor control, velocity, position or position error.
