The PISO-PS400(U) are 4-axis stepping/pulse-type servo motor control card that can be used on any IPC with PCI bus and is suitable for general-purpose motion control applications. These cards are equipped with one FRnet Master which allows the fast remote I/O of the IPC to be expanded easily. The two-wired FRnet interface allows a maximum 128 DI and 128 DO channels, which are automatically scanned within a period of 2.88 ms.

In addition to its wide speed range, this intelligent motion controller also has a variety of motion control functions built in, such as 2/3-axis linear interpolation, 2-axis circular interpolation, T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration, numerous synchronous actions, automatic homing, and others. A major advantage is that the majority of the PS400 series motion control functions are performed by the high-performance motion ASIC with little load on the processor. The motion status, FRnet I/O, and the other I/O cards on the IPC can still be monitored while driving the motors.

As the low CPU loading requirements of the PS400 series is minimal, one or more motion cards can be used with a single IPC. ICP DAS also provides a variety of functions and examples that can be used to reduce the need for additional programming, making it a highly cost-effective solution for motion control application developers.
