PXI 7354



I am looking at the motion controller PXI-7354 in a PXIe-1062Q chassis with a PXIe-8108 Embedded Controller. After looking through the manuals and online sites for the PXI-7354 I have not been able to come to a clear conclusion of whether or not the motion controller could support operating an actuator as well as running a servo and/or stepper simultaneously. The manual states that the PXI-7354 has extra analog inputs running 16 bit, however I am unsure if those would suffice in what I am looking to do.

Hi FRumd,


The thing to know is that you can't use a hardware trigger to trigger the Analog I/O and there are some rate issues that are addressed in this KnowledgeBase Article. Other than that you'll have access to the +/- 10V AIO so I'm thinking they could activate an actuator just fine depending on the requirements.


Also this question might get more relevant traffic on the motion discussion forum HERE.
