ISAC offered its PAC, based on ARM CPU.
This solution allows the connection to the network, the execution of a programmable control law and of an HMI in various languages, all inside the same device.
Axes could be controlled as Pulse/Direction also for Stepper axes, and this allows to optimize the performance for step axes, reaching and sometimes exceeding the nominal characteristics of the motors. Moreover, the CAN interface allows to drive third-party servodrivers.
