The MCP motor controller is feature-packed and customizable. It incorporates an advanced motion control scripting language based on an easy to use variant of BASIC. The scripting language gives complete control over the motor controller's functions including changes to I/O and system settings on the fly. The scripting language supports 32 bit integer and floating point math, 32 bit variables, arrays, conditional statements and more. The MCP's I/O is scriptable, making it extremely adaptable to any application. Scripts are created and debugged from within the free Motion Studio application. The MCP's high degree of customization allows it to easily run as a stand alone controller or integrate into any system.
The MCP can be configured for closed or open loop modes. A wide range of closed loop sensor are supported including potentiometers, absolute encoders, accelerometers, gyros and more.
The MCP includes several user definable I/O which make the integration of limit switches, homing switches and other devices possible. In addition I2C and SPI are supported to connect external sensors. The MCP program language and mix of user- controlled I/O eliminate the need for a secondary interface system in many applications.
With the multi mode interface, MCP can be controlled from CANOpen, USB, RC radio, serial devices, analog, PLCs and or microcontrollers such as an Arduino or Raspberry Pi. In addition it can be networked as slave or master using CANOpen.
The MCP is a synchronous regenerative motor controller. It can be configured to redirect the regenerative power for use with switching power supplies. The MPC also incorporates a lithium cutoff mode to protect batteries from damage due to excessive regenerative voltages.
