The EZController was designed to allow the rapid implementation of multi axis Step and Direction control of stepper drives, as well as perform I/O and Temperature control functions.
Measuring only 1.6" x 1.6", the fully intelligent controllers allow automation to be achieved with ease. A single 4 wire bus, containing 2 power wires and two communications wires, links up to 16 such controllers in a daisy chain (see wiring diagram). Commands can be issued from any serial terminal program (such as HyperTerminal) or from the EZStepper Windows application.
The Commands are intuitive and simple. For example, the command A10000 will move the stepper motor to Absolute position 10000. This communications protocol is compatible with devices that use the Cavro DT or OEM protocol.
The EZ Controller is also capable of stand-alone operation with no connection to a PC. It can be set to execute a preset string of commands upon power up (i.e., only power is required in this mode). The Commands include nested loops and execution halt pending a switch closure, which is useful in stand-alone applications.
The EZCTRL17-ST Motor Controller will work with any power stage uses STEP and DIRECTION or +/-10V inputs. In I/O Mode or Temperature control mode, simple commands allow easy programming of the Controller to achieve the desired function. Our Starter Kits supply all cables and accessiries needed to facilitate wiring.
