The Commander Controller Module CMD-4EX-CR is the optimal solution for customers who want to integrate a motion
controller with the functionalities of the 4-axis FMAX stand-alone subsystem on their own PCB. The freely
programmable multi-axis control considerably shortens development and product launch times.
Compared to the FMAX, the CMD-4EX-CR offers more functions. With only one module, the controller enables many
solutions for the realization of complicated motion profiles up to four axes. Both rotating and linear brushless
DC motors, stepper motors or positioning tables in any combination are supported.
The CMD module offers high data transfer rates via Ethernet. It also supports communication via USB 2.0, RS-485,
C bus and SPI. The module has the following features: linear and circular interpolation in two to four axes
such as the FMAX controller, 13 homing routines, on-the-fly adjustment of speed and position, absolute and
incremental position, S-curve and trapezoidal motion profiles, linear interpolation (XYZU), arc/circle
interpolation (any two axes), helix/tangential interpolation (XYZ), continuous contour (XYZ: 100 Move Buffer
Size), encoder feedback, coordinated motion sequences (linear and circular), up to 40 digital outputs.
The stand-alone system can be operated in PC-based as well as in stand-alone mode and offers easy-to-use,
cost-effective multi-axis motion programming. A BASIC-like programming language was developed by the
manufacturer (C, C ++, VB, VB.net, Linux, Labview, Matlab support with examples). The manufacturer has put
together a development kit with all necessary software.
