Microstepper CONTROLLER

APPLICATIONS

Suitable for OEM or retrofits of light duty Profile Cutting machines including...

  • CNC Engravers
  • CNC Flatbed Routers
  • Oxy / Plasma Cutters
  • Hot Wire and Abrasive Wire cutting machines
  • Special Purpose Machines

This controller is suitable for 1 - 4 axis machines fitted with stepper motors. The motion controller creates step and direction pulses which drive the microstepper amplifiers. The embedded firmware can be stored in an EPROM or Flash Programmable EEPROM. For profile cutting applications, it is used with TekMOV firmware and ProfileLAB CAD/CAM software.

For special purpose machines, the controller can be used with or without the Operator Interface, and firmware can be embedded in either eprom or flash eeprom. Custom programming for special applications is available by contacting Tommotek.

Enclosure Options

Chassis Mount Controller

This configuration is suitable for use with custom enclosure, or retrofits where existing enclosure is to be re-used.

Mini Controller
(shown with Operator Interface)

This configuration is suitable for applications where Operator interface is located up to 3 meters away from the controller, and no additional auxiliaries have to be enclosed in the control box. This enclosure has space for only 1 microstepper amp.

Mid Sized Controller
(shown with Operator Interface)

This configuration is suitable for applications where the Operator Interface is located up to 3 meters away from the controller, and some small auxilliaries such as pneumatic solenoids, etc. are to be housed in the control box. This enclosure has room for 4 microstepper amplifiers.

Integrated Controller

This configuration is suitable where the Operator Interface is located either at the controller, or up to 3 meters.

There is enough room in the control box to house large auxlliaries such as frequency inverters, brake resistors, pneumatics etc. This controller has room for 4 large microstepper amplifiers.

Operator Interface Options
 
Operator Interface with Analog Joystick, and 4 x 40 Graphical LCD Screen Simple Opertator Interface with Microswitch joystick and 2 x 20 LCD screen
For Special Puropose machines, Hyperterm or similar RS232 based Comms package.
Motor Options
Any size of Stepper Motor can be driven by this system, when coupled with the appropriate microstepping amplifier. Consult Tommotek for assistance with motor and amplifier selection.
