HiCON Mini motion controller works with Mach4 software and Digital Drives (stepper or servo motors) using Ethernet communications. HiCON Mini provides excellent integration with Mach4 CNC software, proven by hundreds of end-users since 2011. The controller generates hardware synthesized motion pulse train using state-of-the-art FPGA devices that offers extremely smooth motion profies compared to the low cost controllers in the market. HiCON Mini is packed with a comprehensive set of features for your CNC application and provides an all-in-one solution of controller that greatly simplifies system integration and maintainence.
We have developed plugins for Mach4 software, working closely with Mach Software development team. Our Mach4 plugins are the top rated and most comprehensive plugins available.
The HiCON Mini controller can be used in a variety of applications, e.g.,
Also check out the new ARCPRO Plasma Package for torch height control functionality with this controller.
We will match the prices of our Hicon Mini Motion Controllers and breakout boards with similar devices sold by competitors. To get the lowest price, you simply need to show the price list published recently from a recognized manufacturer. No minimum quantity is required for price match guarantee.
This setup provides a great solution for applications that require accuracy and reliability. The closed loop feature accounts for any missing steps during transmission, and will automatically apply the necessary position correction at the start of the next move. This prevents following errors from accumulating. In addition, the DROs on Mach4 will show the actual machine position instead of just a step counter. Closed loop option also allows you to use the mill in manual mode where you manipulate the axis manually while seeing the actual positions in the DROs.
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 software releases, please refer to the download section below
