The DMC-1600 Series of compact PCI bus motion-control cards use the rugged Eurocard chassis, which provides speed and "plug and play" installation. Each card provides up to four axes of motion control and can be used with step motors, servomotors, and hydraulics on any combination of axes. The DMC-1600 features 80 user-configurable inputs and outputs, non-volatile program memory with multitasking of up to eight programs, high-speed communications, and on-board sinusoidal commutation for brushless motors.
