CME versions of the board include PMD’s C-Motion Engine that allows user application code to run directly on the board, off-loading the system host and enabling stand-alone operation. The Machine controller version has on-board Atlas amplifiers that eliminate the need for external amplifiers.
Based on PMD’s industry-leading Magellan® Motion Control IC, Prodigy boards provide user-selectable profile modes including S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, and electronic gearing with on-the-fly parameter change. Servo loop compensation utilizes a full 32-bit position error, PID with velocity and acceleration feedforward, integration limit and dual biquad filters for sophisticated control of complex loads.
The Pro-Motion GUI makes it easy to set-up and analyze system parameters and motion performance. PMD’s C-Motion library simplifies the program development process and allows the use of industry standard C/C++ or .NET programming languages.
Prodigy® PC/104 and Prodigy®/CME PC/104 boards: These format boards come in both standard and CME (downloadable user code) versions, providing from 1 to 4 axis of control.
Prodigy®/CME Stand-alone:These boards are designed to be operated standalone and include a C-Motion Engine with downloadable user code capability. They come in 1 to 4 axis configurations and support serial, CANbus, and Ethernet communications.
Prodigy®/CME Machine-Controller: These boards are designed to be operated standalone and include on-board amplification via Atlas Amplifiers. They include a C-Motion Engine with downloadable user code capability. They come in 1 to 4 axis configurations and support serial, CANbus, and Ethernet communications. Prodigy/CME Machine Controllers are described as well in this dedicated data sheet.
Prodigy/CME Machine-Controller boards can incorporate on-board Atlas amplifiers. The machine controller P/Ns below are for the board only. Atlas amplifiers of various types can be purchased separately and installed into the machine controller board.
Refer to Atlas Digital Amplifiers datasheet for more information.
Refer to Prodigy/CME Machine-Controller datasheet for more information.
All Prodigy PC/104, Prodigy/CME PC/104, and Prodigy/CME Stand-alone developer kits include the motion control board.
Most Prodigy/CME Machine-Controller developer kits include the motion control board as well as different configuration of installed Atlasses. In addition a machine controller DK with just mounting and cable hardware is available. When this DK is used the machine controller board and Atlas units are ordered separately and installed by the user.
