LYNX(TM) modular motion-control system interfaces with stepper or digital servo drives and enables distributed control. The LYNX can be used as a stand-alone controller or combined with other LYNX modules to expand system capability for more-complex control. Features such as pluggable terminal strips and easy-to-connect plug-on drive, I/O, and power-supply modules enable users to create a system that suits their needs.
