Motion Control

ICON Technologies can supply custom measurement and automation systems with integrated motion control. From multi-axis systems that implement complex blended trajectories, to simple 1D and 2D positioning. From precise micro-positioning in an R&D environment, to rugged industrial scale systems.

ICON Technologies' motion systems can implement any mix of stepper, servo, hydraulic, or piezo-electric control. We can supply systems that are compatible with most industry standard motors and drives.


Ultra High Performance, Multi-Axis Motion Control

For applications that demand the ultimate in high-performance multi-axis motion control, we use plug-in PCI or PXI based controller cards from National Instruments. These cards can drive up to eight axes per card, individually configurable for either stepper or servo control.

They support blended motion trajectory control and fully coordinated linear, point-to-point, circular, gearing and vector space control.

Applications can be implemented on either a Windows-based host, or the PXI RT Embedded Real-Time PAC platform. Choose PXI RT for added reliability in mission critical situations.

Rugged Embedded Controllers for Harsh Industrial Applications

For industrial environments considered too harsh even for PXI RT, ICON Technologies can deliver custom high performance multi-axis motion control using National Instruments' rugged CompactRIO and Compact FieldPoint PAC platforms.

Whatever your motion requirements, and whatever your environment, ICON Technologies can provide a solution.
