Joystick and Trackball Interfaced Stepper motor controller Card
SMCM Series

Request for More Info


This stepper motor control card is capable of moving a group of motors via controlling the movement of a joystick or trackball. The speed of the motor is proportional to the tilt angle of the joystick. 

These series are complete multi-axis, multi-speed, stand-alone, easy-to-use, plug-and-play, and low cost for manual stepper motor control applications . They can replace or upgrade manual systems, motorizing them with precision joystick and/or trackball control.

Controlling devices include analog joystick,  trackball, two-phase quadrature signals,  digital potentiometer, DC voltage, and external step and direction signals.


NO PROGRAMMING IS NECESSARY.
