ADLINK introduces PCI-based 8-axis motion card for steppers, servos, and linear motors

ADLINK Technology Inc. (TAIEX: 6166), a leading industrial application platform provider, continues to expand its motion control product line with the introduction of the PCI-8158 motion controller card for applications employing steppers, servos, and linear motors.

The PCI-8158 is an advanced, cost-effective, and powerful 8-axis pulse train motion control card featuring a modularized design and delivering high-frequency pulse rates of up to 6.55 MHz. The card features a hardware-controlled emergency input stop, software security protection that avoids plagiarism, card index switch, and a simultaneous linear/linear circular/circular run that exceeds the industry's cost over performance requirements.

Compatible with Mitsubishi, Panasonic, and Yaskawa servos and steppers, the PCI-8158 allows complex moving patterns through multiple axes that move with linear and circular interpolations using continuous contouring. Applicable for various linear-wise and circular-wise trajectories, the PCI-8158 delivers the smoothest motion control for a wide-range of manufacturing applications.

The PCI-8158 also offers 13 homing modes for a variety of machine designs, backlash compensation, and serial connectivity for multiple axes among multiple cards. Complying with the highest safety standards, the PCI-8158 implements a hardware-based emergency stop control that prevents sending out of pulse train from the controller during an emergency.

Modularly designed, the PCI-8158 may be expanded to include distributed I/O control, high-speed triggering, and ECAM control through an ADLINK extension board. The combination of centralized motion control (8-axis) and distributed I/O lowers the overall cost of ownership and saves critical chassis space for compact systems. The extension board offers a high-speed triggering output frequency of up to 2 MHz and an onboard SDRAM that stores large comparing points and supports high line rate line scan applications. The ECAM function on the extension board extends the benefit of electronic CAM control.

ADLINK ships the PCI-8158 with a comprehensive set of software drivers for Windows® and MotionCreatorPro enabling testing and debugging of particular tasks faster, more convenient, and more efficient.

The PCI-8158 is now available from authorized ADLINK distributors and direct sales office.
