ADLINK Launches Integrated 4-Axis PCIe Pulse Motion Controllers for Demanding Machine Automation
ADLINK’s latest AMP models are 4-axis motion controller cards with a PCI Express interface, a pulse output rate of up to 10 MHz, and 64-channel GPIO support.
ADLINK Technology Inc. announces the release of its AMP-104C and AMP-304C pulse motion controller series, based on the PCI Express interface. With high performance and exceptional accuracy, these controllers are engineered specifically to satisfy motion control equipment requirements in numerous high-growth electronics manufacturing fields, including the semiconductor, AOI, and LED industries.
The AMP-104C is an entry-level controller that enables reliable, accurate execution of basic point-to-point (P2P) motion. It also provides additional encoder input and a position latch, which delivers more accurate positioning on stepper motors. Such features add high value at an economical price.
For more advanced or complex motor control, ADLINK’s AMP-304C offers incredible speed and precision. The AMP-304C comes with the DIN-304C dedicated terminal board to help simplify cable distribution. With both cards together, the AMP-304C improves overall performance while minimizing total cost.
Both AMP models feature a two-in-one design that combines motion control and I/O functionality. Through hardware integration and smart software implementation, ADLINK converges all that port capability into a single device for easier manageability with a lower total cost and no compromise in I/O capability. This allows customers to decide whether they want to connect I/O devices or execute different motion operations via the I/O connectors.
The AMP-304C provides 16-channel output for ADLINK’s exclusive position comparison function, which simplifies the setup of repeatable motion applications through a “comparison points reuse” mode, thus saving API configuration time. AMP-304C also supports a “quick-response API” and “command preload mode,” which reduce execution times between the motion control card and CPU, thereby increasing throughput and further improving production units per hour (UPH). All these advanced AMP-304C functions can be set up and managed through ADLINK’s APS SDK, which delivers a single code library and unified user interface with over 400 motion control functions for a no-code testing developer. Thanks to ADLINK’s SDK, the motion control system can be easily upgraded, centrally managed, and quickly deployed.
