KINGSTAR Soft Motion
KINGSTAR Soft Motion is an open and standards-based, software-only solution that streamlines motion control automation. KINGSTAR runs directly on the PC, uses the NIC card for I/O and uses the powerful EtherCAT protocol to free you from the shackles of proprietary and costly hardware. Using a single industrial PC enhanced by the power of a real-time operating system (RTOS) for Windows, and leveraging the CANopen over EtherCAT standard, you can deliver a software-only motion control and positioning system quickly and cost effectively. With KINGSTAR, motion control engineers can design, develop and integrate PC-based machine controllers in a “plug-and-play” environment for consolidated, inexpensive and scalable motion control.
