PCM-3240 is a 4-axis stepping/pulse-type servo motor control card designed for general-purpose motion applications. PCM-3240 is a high-speed 4-axis motion control card for
the PC/104 bus that simplifies stepping and pulse-type servo motor control, giving you added performance from your motors. The card’s intelligent NOVA® MCX314-motion ASIC
builds in a variety of motion control functions, such as 2/3-axis linear interpolation, 2- axis circular interpolation, T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration rate and more. In addition, the
PCM-3240 performs these motion control functions without processor loading during driving. For advanced applications, we supply Windows® DLL drivers and user-friendly examples
to decrease your programming load. Moreover, with a free bundled PCM-3240 motion utility, you can easily complete configuration and diagnosis.
