The SMC 9300 is a programmable stand-alone stepper motor controller for simultaneous control of up to 18 motor axes.
The 19"-rack unit is equipped with an Intel embedded CPU, a 7" touch-screen user interface and operates under Windows Embedded Standard 7. The controller communicates via serial- or ethernet interface. Each axis provides home-, limit- and incremental encoder signal input. Please see table below for detailed specifications.
We build your individual motor controller which exactly meets you requirements. According to your specifications, individually equipped, without compromises, cost-efficient and quick.

The picture below shows the rear panel of a SMC 9302, i.e. a control system for two stepper motor axes.
In this case the motor drivers are integrated to the control unit and separately switchable. The controller is equipped with both serial and network interfaces as standard.
The following options are also available:
- Digital I/O-port (8 in, 8 out)
- Control of filter- and half-screen device for crystallography application
- TTL-counter input for scintillation counter tubes
- Clock and direction outputs for external position monitor.
