The MetraByte M5000 Series of PC plug-in boards for control of stepper motor drives can intelligently control up to three independent stepper motor drives, enabling the performance of complex motion profiling routines. The full-size ISA boards can be used for applications under Windows. Applications include X-Y table control, high-speed motor control, process automation, and robotics. Each of the board's independently programmable stepper channels is equipped with five control inputs.
