The I-8094 is a 4-axis stepping/pulse-type servo motor control module that can be used on any of the ICP DAS I-8000 and PAC series controllers, and is suitable for general-purpose motion applications. 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, a range of synchronous actions, automatic homing, and others.
A major advantage is that the majority of the I-8094 motion control functions are performed by the high-performance motion ASIC with little load on the processor. While driving the motors, the motion status, and the status of other I/O channels on the I-8000 or PAC modules, can still be monitored. As the CPU loading requirements of the I-8094 is minimal, one or more motion modules may be used with a single I-8000 or PAC controller. ICP DAS also provides a wide range 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.
