The PIC-SERVO SC Motion Control Chip is a complete servo motion control system based on the PIC18F2331 microcontroller.  It executes all of the real time processes (PID servo filter, motion profiling, commutation, error monitoring, communications) needed for controlling your motor.  The simple serial NMC communications protocol lets you easily connect your microcontroller or PC host computer to multiple controller chips.  (The address space supports up to 254 controllers.)  The coordinated motion control support allows your host computer to precisely coordinate the motion of up to 16 motors.  The same Windows test utilities and libraries used with our motion control boards can be used with your own custom boards designed with the PIC-SERVO SC(back to top)

The PIC-I/O General Purpose I/O Chip compliments our other motion control chips, allowing you to add additional I/O capabilities to your motion control systems.  It uses the same NMC serial communications protocol as our other controllers making it simple to add analog or digital I/O as needed.  (back to top)

 

mbchip.jpg Motion Basic Controller Chip

Part Number: KAE-MBV1-DP
Package: 28 pin, 0.3" DIP

data sheet
Specifications   
  • Master controller for creating stand-alone motion control systems
  • Controls up to 8 PIC-SERVO, PIC-STEP or PIC-I/O modules
  • Plugs into socket on the SSA-485 adapter board
  • Create simple  Motion Basic programs using our Windows based programming utility
  • Easy-to use BASIC programming language
  • Controller chip also provides a simplified ASCII Command Interface (ACI) mode

 

The Motion Basic controller chip is a microcontroller which allows you to create simple stand-alone motion control programs for up to 8 of our NMC motion control modules.   Using our easy-to-use Windows based programming and debugging utility you can quickly create BASIC language programs which include motion commands.  Motion Basic programs can also communicate with another computer over an RS232 or USB port.  The Motion Basic controller chip is designed for use with our SSA-485 board to allow non-programmers to create simple motion control applications. 

The Motion Basic controller chip also includes a simplified ASCII Command Interface (ACI) mode for communicating directly with our NMC motion controllers.  When operating in ACI mode, you can send simple ASCII commands ( e.g.: "1 svmp 5000") to the controllers using an RS232 terminal or a terminal program.   While not as efficient or powerful as the native  binary NMC communications protocol, ACI mode commands can be much simpler to use for non-demanding applicaitions.
