XY Controller [Micro Controle Model IT6D CA2]

I have built a Light Beam Induced Current cum I-V
characterisation setup in which data acquisition from
typical 400K pixel scans takes about 100 hours. This
acquisition is effected over a PCMCIA/GPIB interface
by LabVIEW 6.0 running on Windows 2000.

The single largest contributor to the total data
acquisition time is XY-scanning. The instrument in
question is a French fabrication XY Controller of
the type

Micro Controle Model IT6D CA2

which employs micron-precision step motors. I have
been unable to find any drivers for this instrument
as it is rather old and, to the best of my
knowledge, unsupported. I currently use a core which
appears to work though its intricacies are not clear
to either myself or others I have asked
.

Does anyone have any experience that may be relevant
to this XY Controller? General tips on improving the
efficiency of XY Controllers in LabVIEW would be
greatly appreciated.

Andrew,
If you are looking a Motion Controller compatible with LabVIEW to drive you XY stage, you may want to consider checking into our 7344 Motion Controller. The driver provided witht he hardware is compatible with and easily programible through LabVIEW.
Here is a link to our product page with more information ont he controller.

Thanks cld,

I am rather pressed for time, however, and would prefer tips on how to
code a good instrument driver for the

Micro Controle Model IT6D CA2.

I will certainly consider your 7344 Motion Controller for future work.


Andrew

У меня есть два таких контроллера, к ним прилагались два шаговых двигателя SFMI 11160 - точность перемещения = 0.1 мкм.

Я накидал простенькую программу, где написал все команды по протоколу IEEE - они не много отличаются от команд для RS232.

Посмотрите
