The MasterMACS is a free programmable high performance Motion Controller without Amplifiers. This controllers offers hard real time behaviour an calculates up to 32 axis with high precision for positioning or synchronisation. A lot of interfaces like EtherCAT Master/Slave, Ethernet, 2 x CAN, RS232 etc. make its easy to integrate it into your drive concept.
