Stepping Motor Intelligent Motion Driver/Controller

ACS MCB-4B Controller

The MCB-4B Stepping Motor Intelligent Motion Driver/Controller is an open frame 4- axis integrated stepping motor driver/controller that drives and controls any 2-phase stepping motors with phase currents from 0.25 to 3.0Amps/phase, simultaneously. The MCB-4B performs indexing functions without the need of a host computer, but can operate under the control of a host. The MCB-4B's internal nonvolatile memory will store and execute a programmed instruction set, with four on-board toggle switches providing manual jog control. High efficiency , low noise motor drivers provide programmable full, half, quarter and one eighth step per full motor step, with torque compensation.
