AGC series is a family of high performance, standalone 3-axis controllers with Ethernet, USB, CAN bus, RS232 and RS485 communication ports to interface with any kind of host devices. It can control any external drivers, either in analog +/-10V format or digital Pulse & Direction format. It has 18 digital inputs, 17 digital outputs, 4 analog inputs, 4 analog outputs and 8 bi-directional differential I/Os. Supporting 3-axis coordinated motion, this controller is very suitable to control XYZ stages, XY-Theta stages, flexible-link gantry, SCARA robot, tip-tilt stages, etc.
