The FIGARO series of Stepper Motor control system is an easy-to-use, plug-and-play and cost effective solution for Stepper Motor control applications.  It may be used as a stand-alone unit or may be commanded by an external device.

Each system includes the power supplies, the motion controller card,
the micro-stepper and/or servo motor drivers

This Motor control system supports up to 4 axes of motion, 16 TTL / CMOS inputs, 16 TTL / CMOS outputs,  analog inputs, and  optional optical encoder inputs.

The system may be controlled in different ways;

1) Externally Control Operation of Motor Control System

In this mode, the external host such as a PC, micro-controller or PLC sends a series of commands to the controller via the RS-232 serial port. The controller processes and performs the incoming commands and responds with proper messages.

2) Operating the Motor Control System Using the Supplied Control Panel

The supplied user friendly Control Panel software allows the user to set-up the module quickly. The operator is able  to move the mechanism to different positions by pressing the corresponding buttons of the Control Panel or by using the joystick and/or trackball.

1) Teach Mode 

The motion profile may be recorded using the "Teach Mode" capability of the software. This profile may be uploaded to the controller to repeat the same exact Stepper Motor.

2) Profile Entry Mode 

The motion parameters are manually entered in the control panel by typing the desired values in the corresponding fields, or may be read from a text file.

 

The system can also be operated using an analog joystick or a trackball. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick or the rotational speed of the trackball.
