The VME322 Intelligent Stepper Motor Controller is designed to drive up to eight external Amplifiers. This is an ideal solution for all applications where stepper motors must be controlled with a maximum of flexibility and a minimum of overhead. Local processors handles all high-level commands to provide maximum control for both straightforward as very complex applications.
This VMEbus board has a 6U form and is also available as 3U VMEbus board.
