2-Axis, Stepper/Servo Motion Controller Device—The PCI‑7342 is recommended for both simple and complex motion applications. The PCI‑7342 includes dual processors, a real-time onboard OS, and multiaxis interpolation. The PCI‑7342 offers blended motion trajectory control and fully coordinated circular, linear, point‑to‑point, gearing, and vector-space control in either embedded motion operation or host-centric programming environments. The PCI‑7342 also provides contouring capability for complex moves. The onboard CPU uses an embedded real-time OS with event-driven multitasking control. With this approach, several motion control programs and processes can operate simultaneously on the controller, independent of the host PC and with no outside interaction unless the host program or user configuration initiates it.
