Can MK-200 operate with any host processor or microcontroller?
Yes. Any processor or microcontroller with a spare UART can be used as a host to the MK-200.
Is there any limitation on the size of motors that can be controlled with MK-200?
There is no limitation on the motor size. MK-200 produces pulse/direction outputs that can be sent to any size amplifier.
What type of feedback sensor is required to control motors?
MK-200 accepts incremental encoder for servo motor control. The incremental encoder can be rotatory or linear as long as it produces two channels of information in quadrature format. For stepper motor control, no encoder is required.
What is the programming language used?
All MK series of motion controllers use a unified set of commands developed by MOTKA. These intuitive commands are strings of ASCII characters and can be sent to MK-200 using any software tool that can send and receive ASCII characters. This allow you to evaluate the controller without any serious coding using, say, C++. Please download our free Command Reference for more details.
Is there software tool provided to speed up evaluation?
Yes. MOTKA provides the MOTKA Motion Companion software for you to start working with all MK series motion controllers without writing your own program. This software tool, and its user's manual, can be downloaded for free.
