Techno-Isel controller

Hello,

We have a Techno-Isel motion controller (servo) and would like to use
LabVIEW to control this system. Techno offers no LabVIEW drivers for
their products. Does anyone have experience with their systems?

Thanks for your help.

I don't know about Techno-Isel but I think systec has a VI for their
motion controller MCM. YOu might want to check their website
www.systec.de

What kind of interface does it have? Does it have a manual that
describes a command set? I would guess that it has a set of command
for programming moves and a serial interface. In this case you can
easily write your own "drivers" using the VISA read/write commands.
Just use the VISA write command to send the command strings to the
unit over the serial port and you're set.

Johannes and greenman,

Thanks for your help.

We've decided to replace the old Techno ISA card with a National
Instruments PCI-7344 and use the UMI-7764 to connect to the Techno
drive. Techno sells their PCI controller card for $1495, but you must
pay another $750 for their windows dll! They stated that their dll
currently only works with VB, so we're better off buying buying the NI
card and using the LabVIEW motion control VIs.

Some of the Techno machines have built-in controllers with standard
RS-232 interfaces, which would have been easy to integrate into our
system. Unfortunately ours is not on of those.
