The Soloist Control System can control up to five tasks simultaneously, as well as handle variables and manage I/O, making it well-suited for demanding production applications.
The Soloist Motion Control System has high-speed position latch inputs and advanced data logging capabilities, making it ideal for laboratory and test instrument applications. The advanced software architecture shortens customer development time while including support for C#, VB.Net and LabVIEW®, combined with our full IDE and multitasking operating system. Host-mode operation allows you to send commands with your PC via Ethernet or USB for immediate execution, while Ethernet or USB also permit networked Soloists for multi-axis sequenced motion and I/O passing.
The Soloist Motion Control System has three PWM form factors (HPe, CP, MP). The Soloist MP offers the same advanced software as the CP but in a smaller package designed for OEMs that can supply bus power from existing power supplies. The Soloist HPe can be used for larger systems requiring up to 150 A peak current.
The Soloist Motion Control System has three linear-drive form factors (HLe, CL, ML) that are ideal for higher precision applications. The Soloist CL with linear power stage is available for low noise and ultra-high-performance applications. This controller is ideal for high bandwidth requirements and maintains superb linearity and zero crossover distortion. For example, applications that have many motion reversals and that require high position accuracy will benefit from using the Soloist CL. The Soloist HLe provides the same ultra-high linear amplifier performance as the CL, but also includes higher peak and continuous current output along with additional features and options. The Soloist ML provides a very small package linear power stage for high position-accuracy applications.
