Careers

Our motion control platform is a real-time software product that is based on our extensive experience in motion control across numerous industries and customers. Many players in the motion industry have recognised this and used the platform to take their motion solutions to the next level.

The platform distinguishes itself from other motion software systems by offering ultimate real-time performance and tooling as well as a very clear user interface. The Matlab/Simulink interfaces allow you to combine simulation code within an existing motion system, providing endless opportunities for control loop optimization and tuning. Due to its flexible interfaces and its hardware independence, the platform can be used in virtually any type of application, ranging from high-end motion control systems to ultra-low cost applications.

 

Key features:

Communication methods:

none/on-board Single board motion solution
