Motion Control

There are a lot of motors around us. Stepper motors, direct current (DC), piezo-electric, servo etc. Each comes in different size and shape and require different motion controller. There are thousands devices which have motors and motion controllers inside. Some of them are used in science – for instance in spectrometers, monohromators, positioners. Some are used in industry – in conveyors, elevators, robots. Some are used in everyday life – in point and shoot cameras, printers, scanners, fax machines even in cars. So motion control is very large and important part of our life.  

Virtually any system which has motor and motion controller requires software to operate. Actually, it requires two different pieces of software. One is called device driver, the other –  user interface. The device driver is responsible for communication between device and computer, or between device and device. The user interface is responsible for communication between device and operator. Both sets of software should be properly written and be reliable.

X Instruments provides software for motion control. We create both device drivers and custom user interfaces for motion control tasks. Our company has a lot of experience in automation of devices which use motion control systems.

So if you require a driver for your device or custom user interface for your motion control system, contact us. If you want to know more about our work, please look into our Projects folder.
