Updated: February 2017

Our MultiController control unit MCS is a professional tool reaching far out:

  • Flexible electronics in multilayer technology with 32bit-MicroControllers and EMV-components

  • Separate controllers resp. cards for different axes and controlling tasks with individual intelligence

  • Perfect software support by firmware together with our CAD/CAM/CNC-software nccad

It is integrated in all our serial products in different combination, i.e. in our coordinate tables, CNC-machines, dispensing systems, etc.
It is also used to control other than our machines/mechanics by different companies and private persons in individual combinations.
Additional modules and extensions have been generated during the last years. They are part of the success of this control unit.

Inside the MCS10n, here with 3 axes controllers (Slave), i.e. MCS103.
Picture without wiring for better view.

Back of MCS103 with power switch, power input, fuse, 230V-switching output, 3 sockets for stepper motors, socket "Zusatzfunktionen" ("additional functions") (optional), Connection to tool-length measurer and depth controller/3D-scanner, PC-port (from right to left).

Our CNC-control series MCS100 is able to control lathes, milling machines, coordinate tables o similar and its delivery contains:
MultiController unit for n axes,

More information on nccad9

Our MCS100 is able to control your self-made mechanics and can be programmed in CNC-mode after DIN - or in CAD/CAM mode.
Cooperation with external CAD/CAM programs is possible.

Extensions are possible up to a high level in hard- or software in a modular system:
- Axis controller for add-ons, like dividing head, tool-changer etc.
- Axis controller for A-, B-, C-, U-axes, special slave for servo drives
- SPS-controller with dialog programming
(relay slave)
- Handwheel box with override feed/rpm
- Sensor systems for control and positionning
- Support in CNC and CAD/CAM for A-, B-, C-, U-axes
- Different performance levels of nccad9
- OEM-solutions, branch solutions         ...... Shop / Control units ...

A controller is composed of at least ...

  • a basic unit

  • an axis-controller

  • software

Different extensions and modifications are possible...

  • with/without output stage

  • diff. in-/outputs .... etc.

You can compose your own control unit by a modular system, for 2 to 7 axes, with or without SPS-functions, with different interfaces up to an integration of measuring systems.

For advice, please contact us, to the shop ...
