Compact 6-Axis Motion Controller

The smallest 6-axis Motion Controller in its performance class 

Introducing the softMC 3, a compact full-featured motion controller for up to 6 axes, with industry-standard communication interfaces.

Servotronix introduces the softMC 3, a new addition to its motion controller product line. The softMC 3 utilizes the same field-proven motion control software as other products in the family, while being designed specifically for efficient control of mechanical systems with 1 to 6 axes. This product has the smallest footprint in its performance class, and is ideal for controlling mechanical stages, gantry tables, DELTA and SCARA robots.

The softMC 3 continues to use the Linux operating system with real-time extensions to ensure precise coordinated motion. Interface to servo drives and I/Os is via EtherCAT or CANopen, enabling customers to choose what is right for their application. An Ethernet port provides TCP/IP interface to a host computer, and Modbus TCP software enables fast and easy connection to a multitude of HMIs and operator panels.

softMC 3 is designed to seamlessly integrate with Servotronix’s servo and stepper drive-motor systems, including the stepIM integrated stepper motors, to provide a complete motion solution in a cost effective package. With the new softMC 3, customers have more choice than ever in how to create their perfect motion system.
