Cost-effective motion control solutions
LG Motion can offer motion control solutions from Arcus Technology, to provide simple and cost-effective motion control solutions – from single- and multi-axis standalone stepper drive and control packages, to integrated intelligent stepper drives for distributed control, with a choice of communication interfaces, touchscreen integration, simple multi-tasking programming and source codes for a variety of PC-based programming platforms and LabVIEW.
The Arcus Technology range has proven particularly successful for OEMs, machine builders and researchers because product costs and development timescales are realistic and viable. This is especially true for areas such as laboratory automation.
Arcus Technology motion controls include USB 2.0 communications offering Plug&Play advantage for set-up and programming using a BASIC-like language. Sample source code is available for PC control using C++, Visual Basic, .NET and LabVIEW, with motion system expansion available using Ethernet and RS485 to communicate with machine networks and optional HMIs.
A range of integrated stepper motor packages are also available. The DMX series include built-in microstepping driver and optional motion controller with I/O, plus an incremental encoder that provides closed-loop feedback for automatic position correction.
Available in NEMA 17 and 23 frame sizes as well as NEMA size 11; these integrated motors can provide cost-effective single-axis or networked multi-axis motion solutions in a wide variety of applications.
