Multi-axis controller is powerful, compact and cost-effective

To meet the need for inexpensive, yet precise motion control, Delta Tau is launching the new Turbo PMAC Clipper controller. The multi-axis controller is very powerful, but compact and cost-effective. Indeed, the Clipper is claimed to be capable of handling demanding applications at a fraction of the cost of comparable controllers available previously. It has Delta Tau's full Turbo PMAC2 processor (CPU) section and provides a minimum of four axes of servo or stepper control with 32 general-purpose digital I/O points. It also has both Ethernet and RS-232 communication links.

The base version of the Turbo PMAC Clipper controller provides a 110 x 220mm (4.25 x 8.5inch) board with features such as: 256k x 24 user SRAM; 1M x 8 flash memory for user backup and firmware; PID/notch/feed forward servo algorithms; 32 general-purpose TTL-level I/O points, sink/source selectable by byte; and many more advanced standard functions.

Delta Tau says the Clipper can be used completely standalone, with occasional commands from a host computer or PLC, or with real-time high-speed streaming of data over the Ethernet link.

Numerous stackable accessories are available for fast DAC conversion, direct PWM and high-resolution sin/cos encoder interpolation - among others.

Delta Tau's PMAC (Programmable Multiple Axis Controller) is said to be a de facto standard in the motion control arena – indeed, Delta Tau says that other motion control manufacturers frequently benchmark their products against the PMAC. The flexibility and versatility of the equipment has seen it applied in applications as diverse as the Hubble telescope, the Diamond Light synchrotron ring, and controlling the motion of the Titanic on the set for the motion picture.
