  CS16600 Control Board

CamSofts motion control card is a low cost solution for servo motor applications. The CS16600 series motion control card installs directly into the PCI bus.  This controller series offers many features including 32 bit PCI-Bus, 6 channels 16-bit high resolution analog output, 6 channels 12-bit analog input, 19 channels optically isolated digital input, 7 channels open collector digital output, and  6 differential type 32-bit, 500 kHz encoder or hand wheel inputs.  Automatic servo tuning software is included as part of the overall solution using the Graphical OI, CNC Lite or Plus software (call your dealer for availability of CNC Professional). The software also offers a 32,000 position move buffer with unlimited program size.

The CS16600 is capable of controlling up to six axes on a single compact PCI card.  These signals can be used for motor control of standard servo motors and amplifiers / drivers with +/- 10 volt analog command signals.  The CS16600 achieves superior precision through use of a high resolution 16-bit motor command output DAC and a sophisticated PID filter right on the PC itself.  Analog output can also be used for control of spindle drive or as a voltage output source.  The card is compact and is only 164mm length by 98.4mm in height.

For synchronization with outside events, the CS16600 provides I/O, including 19 optically isolated 24 volt digital inputs, and 7 optically isolated 5 to 24 volt digital outputs.  The CS16600 provides for analog I/O through six analog inputs for use with +/-10 volt differential and single ended signals.  Typical Analog input applications would be the use of potentiometers for use in control of speed or feed over ride pots. And any one of the analog axis command outputs can be used as a +/- 10 volt analog output signal for any device requiring a voltage source for control.

Designed as a solution for machine tool control, the CS16600 can be used for applications involving various machine types.  Common applications are CNC Mill, Routers, Lathes, Water jets, Lasers, Plasma, Grinders, Punch Press, EDMs, etc. plus Factory Automation.
