MAXp Multi-Axis Motion Controller

Item No: MAXp

The MAXp is a PCI bus-based motion controller with up to 8 axes of user-definable servo and stepper motion control. The MAXp is built on a PowerPC 32-bit RISC processor running at 266 MHz. The use of this processor delivers exceptional servo control, capabilities, quality, and application performance on multi-axis requirements. All signals, data points, and the PID loop update every 122 µs on all 8 axes. Each axis of the MAXp controller can be configured as a servo, open loop stepper, or a closed loop stepper.
