Stepper Motor Control


I have been introduced to a project where i need to control 4 independent stepper motors.

The stepper motors have already been specified by the mechanical engineer.

I need to source some stepper control cards which have a labview interface

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks in advance

From my experience in inertial sensors, motor manufacturers usually provide controllers. It shouldn't matter if they have LabVIEW drivers, as once you have the controller language, you can send it via serial commands, or whatever interface is required. It is possible to mix and match controllers and motors, so the most important part is getting whatever commands the controller will accept, then figuring out how many steps per desired increment you need. I have controlled motors both with LabVIEW drivers, and without. It should be able to work either way.
