The MAXnet is a Ethernet / RS232 motion controller with up to 10 axes of user-definable servo & stepper motion control. The MAXnet is built on a PowerPC 32-bit RISC processor running at 266 MHz. The use of this processor delivers exceptional servo control, capabilities, quality, and application performance on multi-axis requirements. All signals, data points, and the PID loop update every 122μs on all 10 axes. Each axis of the MAXnet controller can be configured as a servo, open loop stepper, or a closed loop stepper.
