THE M3545 advanced MOTION CONTROLLER
The ExtraTech® M3545 is a next generation, Ethernet enabled, high performance motion controller with integrated I/O. ExtraTech has optimized this Linux-based controller to fit into a small space yet still provide a powerful motion engine and a modest amount of I/O to make a complete controller solution. The unit supports six axes of motion, and includes I/O as well as serial and Ethernet TCP/IP communications. It's two connectors for external motor drives are each optimized for stepper or servo application.

The M3521 can be programmed and driven by a wide variety of languages, including very elementary ones like BASIC. Or, the unit can be programmed with a specifically designed, commercial-off-the-shelf package in ExtraTech’s powerful Coreo platform. Among other reach features, Coreo allows easy programming of coordinated motion, multiple types of interpolation, and sophisticated accelerations.
