Newport has introduced its universal motion controller/driver, the XPS-Qx. The new, easy to use controller series is available in 2-, 4-, 6- and 8-axis configurations and comes with new firmware and dual core processor.

The integrated motion controller/driver offers high speed communication through 10/100 Base-T Ethernet, provides superior trajectory accuracy, and powerful programming capabilities. From simple motion sequences to complex synchronisation, the XPS-Qx is ideal for demanding applications that require precision control. Multiple I/O capabilities consist of four user-definable analogue inputs, four user-definable analogue outputs, and 30 TTL inputs and outputs. Other features include high-speed data acquisition at up to 10kHz rate and event triggering with 50ns latency.
