an Integrated Motion Control Environment
an Integrated Motion Control Environment (IMCE) working under Windows
and Linux operating systems. The MotionStation™
provides tools to design and develop motion control systems based
on Millennium series motion control boards for brush, brushless, stepper
and microstepper motors. It integrates engineering effort on setting
up and testing control hardware and performing machine motion.
It consists of several components:
and C-MotionPlus libraries and drivers
for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP and Linux. The libraries work in Java
environment, under Windows as DLL, ActiveX, COM/DCOM and .net components
and under Linux as shared libraries
a graphical application with the industry’s first ever Motion
Wizard, assists in a quick and easy way to set up and tune even complex
– a Tcl/Tk ASCII command terminal interfacing locally or over
TCP/IP network, enabling program or single motion commands execution.
Its multitasking environment allows running simultaneously independent
programs. The Console allows communicating with motion cards over
– a library of high level motion functions provides API for
user developed applications. The library handles parameters initialization
and persistence, system status and error tracing, homing, jogging,
independent and synchronized axes moves, motion limits and many others.
The library contains the G-code interpreter.
– compatible with PMD’s C-Motion library featuring enhanced
capabilities of handling interrupts and multiple boards communication,
automatic PCI device detection, unlimited axis number interface, C
and C++ function prototypes working under Windows and Linux environments.
