HiCON CPU/OEM - 6-Axis Step/Direction Ethernet Motion Controller (pn 7752)

Overview

HiCON CPU/OEM (pn7752) is an Ethernet based 6-axis motion controller designed for companies that can build thier own cutomized breakout board. HiCON provides excellent integration with Mach3 and Mach4 CNC software proven by several end users since 2011. Utilizing the latest 32-bit Microchip technology, HiCON offers a comprehensive set of features for your motion control and CNC applications.

For starters, we provide a simple breakout baord 7775 in order for you to test some of the capabilities of the motion controller before investing resources on building your own comprehensive breakout board. If you don't plan to build your own breakout board and are interested in an all-in-one motion controller with integrated I/O breakout, please take a look at our HiCON Integra motion controller.
