Up to seven modules may be added, each providing eight 100-nanosecond registration inputs that can be mapped to any axis. The MC464 Motion Coordinator is based on the 64-bit 400MHz MIPS processor with 64-bit position registers and double floating point math for exceptional servo precision. The central control unit includes analog and digital I/O, status display, SD card memory expansion, axis synchronization and programming ports with a wide choice of half- and full-height expansion modules for drive technology, I/O expansion, factory and fieldbus communication. Users can choose a 4- or 8-axis module for stepper, analog servo or piezo motor control with several choices of absolute or incremental feedback, and can freely mix modules that support third-party drive technologies including SERCOS II, Panasonic RTEX, SLM and now, EtherCat.
