Magellan® Motion Control ICs provide high performance motion control for medical, scientific, robotics, and automation applications. Available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis versions, Magellans provide position and velocity control for Brushless DC, step, and DC Brush motors. These flexible and powerful ICs provide profile generation, servo-loop closure, commutation, current control, and pulse and direction output along with direct quadrature encoder input.
The Magellan Family of Motion Control ICs provide advanced motion control for medical, scientific, automation, industrial, and robotic applications. Available in 1, 2, 3, and 4-axis versions, these flexible, programmable devices control Brushless DC, DC Brush, and step motors.
Magellan Motion ICs are complete motion controllers requiring only an external amplifier to be functional. They are driven by a host using either a parallel bus, SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface), CANbus 2.0B, or RS232/485 serial. User selectable profiling modes include S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring and electronic gearing. PID servo loop compensation utilizes a 32-bit position error and includes velocity and acceleration feedforward. High performance FOC (field oriented control) provides high accuracy, ultra-low noise motor operation.
All Magellan Motion Control ICs provide a flexible and powerful instruction set to initialize and control motion axes, monitor performance, and synchronize overall machine behavior. Working with Magellan ICs and Pro-Motion® development software makes it fast and easy to graph and analyze system performance; while C-Motion® language allows you to develop your own application using C/C++ or .NET languages.
