MOTORCORTEX Embedded Controller MXC‑A4

The MXC-A4 is an Embedded Controller for low-cost industrial or educational robotic applications. It has plenty of performance for even the most complex robotic control tasks and is especially designed for MOTORCORTEX hard-realtime based control systems. The MXC-A4 has hardware features especially designed for robotic control, such as an integrated dual channel Control System Watchdog that will trigger an Emergency Stop in case of a hardware or software failure. It also features dual network cards that both can be used as Realtime EtherCAT masters, or as normal network adapters. Moreover, it allows for a wide range of supply voltages and can be used in 24 VDC or 48 VDC applications directly, without any additional power supply.
