DSPMC - 8-Axis Ethernet Motion Controller


DSPMC 7763 is an Ethernet based motion controller that controls up to 8 Analog ±10V Servo Drives and 8 Step and Direction Digital Drives. The DSPMC provides excellent integration with Mach4 CNC software proven by several hundred end users since 2008. Utilizing the latest Software and Silicon technology, the DSPMC offers a comprehensive set of features for your CNC retrofitting and Motion Control applications. Future expansion will allow controlling Ethercat servo drives and I/O devices via 7729 adapter board.

  • Lathe Threading.
  • Rigid Tapping
  • Manual Mode
  • Closed-loop operation automatically compensates for backlash.
  • Homing Using Home Sensor and/or Index Pulse.
  • Rotary Axis Homing with Index pulse.
  • Use One Home Sensor Input for all axis, or separate Home Sensors for each axis.
  • Option to use Limit switches as homing sensors.
  • Feedrate Override above 100%.
  • Instant FeedHold
  • Slave Axis Support.
  • PID Tuning Graph.
  • Spindle Orientation and Tool Change Support
  • Multiple Spindle control type: 0-10v, ±10V, Servo Spindle, GCode Spindle (Allows easy integration of Tool Changer).
  • High Speed 3D machining support.

Model Differences

Model Step/Direction Analog Outputs Analog Inputs
7763D 8 Channels None None
7763S 8 Channels 8 Analog Outputs None
7763M 8 Channels 8 Analog Outputs 8 Analog Inputs

Most CNC applications will only require the base unit DSPMC 7763S to control analog and digital drives. However, the 7763M version has eight analog inputs channels for reading analog signals. The 7763D can save you some money if you do not require any analog input or output signal.

Mach4 CNC Software

Mach4 is an excellent PC-based software solution for CNC. When paired with a HiCON motion controller, it creates a state of the art CNC solution for machine-shops as well as industrial applications. Mach4 plus HiCON greatly simplifies retrofitting and increases operation reliability. For the latest release of the Mach4 HiCON Plugin, please refer to the download section below.

Note: As Mach4 has become the mainstream CNC software, we have stopped supporting Mach3.

Optional Components for DSPMC System

Advanced and production applications may also benefit from these add-ons:
7737 Board : The pn7737 Differential Step/Direction and Encoder Board allows access to the Step/Direction and more Encoder channels and allows a simple plug-and-play setup (with any standard RJ45/Ethernet cable) when used in tandem with a Drive Interface Board (EPx-DIB) for Maxsine AC Servo Drives.
7535 Board : The I/O Termination board (7535P or 7535N) provides additional optically isolated digital I/O. Each board has 16 input terminals and 8 output terminals. All I/O terminals are clearly marked for quick and easy installation.
DSPMC-MACRO [1]: This software feature allows the user to write custom programs (In C language) which can be downloaded to the controller for fast execution. Advantages of DSPMC-Macro Include:
  • Real-time program execution
  • Ultra-fast I/O manipulation
  • Extends Mach4 Functionality
  • Standalone Operation (No PC Control)
DSPMC-SNT [1]: This software feature is a specialized tool for EDM Machines. It allows the DSPMC to read an analog input at an ultra-fast scan rate and activate a digital output at the moment the voltage reading goes above or below a configured threshold. This feature is available only on the DSPMC 7763M version as analog inputs are required.

Discount Offer

We are looking for your awesome videos showcasing your machine and our motion controller. Send us videos and get 10% to 20% discount (depends on quality) on your next purchase of any of our motion controller. If you dont plan to purchase, we will refund you as a gift for making the video.

Here are some pointers for creating a good demo video:
  • This is a good example video a previous customer made for us.
  • The video demonstrates a part being created.
  • The video specifically shows our controller wired up and operating in a clean well organized panel.
  • Lots of camera angles and good editing (high quality editing is not 100% necessary, but the video should at least look somewhat professional)
  • Ultimately the amount for the discount (upto 20%) will depend on the quality of the video. A high quality video can receive a high discount, while it may be hard to justify a discount if the video will be difficult to use for marketing.
