Manually Programmed Position Control

The MC-5B Micro Positioning Controller from National Aperture, Inc. was designed for ease of use and effortless integration into any application. The MC-5B is a low-cost, quick-setup solution for those applications requiring precision position control of motorized stages. Incorporated into this all-in-one controller is a keypad/display interface, a 750 mA 12 V linear DC motor amplifier, single ended (TTL) A/B quadrature encoder inputs, 5 volt limit switch inputs and a serial communication interface.

The MC-5B functions seamlessly as a single axis, stand-alone system or as a multi-axis networked system, either with or without a PC. The peer-to-peer network architecture makes it possible for every MC-5B in a multi-axis system to control every axis in the motion system. No software development or complex wiring is required. The controllers themselves may be programmed to store and recall positions and to sequence through stored positions with looping, pausing and user/program interaction. Automation may also be driven serially from a PC or host processor.
