Simplifying Motion Control

X-MCB1 Series: Stepper motor controllers

We recently released the X-MCB1, a new and improved single-axis controller.
If you are looking for the A-MCA, please see the A-MCA page.
If you are looking for the T-MCA, please see the T-MCA page.

  • Controls any bipolar stepper motor or actuator with high resolution using an integrated 1.41 Arms (2.0 A peak) per phase driver with customizable microstepping
  • Two isolated digital inputs, two isolated digital outputs, and two analog inputs
  • Intuitive ASCII protocol simplifies complex automation tasks
  • Designed for easy mounting to panels, breadboards, lab benches, and enclosures

The X-MCB1 stepper motor controller is designed with powerful, yet easy-to-use features. It can drive any bipolar stepper motor or actuator up to 1.41 Arms (2.0 A peak) per phase with high resolution. Microstepping resolution of the drive can be set at any value between 1 and 256 microsteps per step, allowing easy customization and fine resolution movement. The controller also includes isolated digital inputs and outputs, as well as analog inputs for interfacing with external systems.

An event-driven trigger system allows the device to be programmed for stand-alone operation based on I/O, time, or movement stimuli. An intuitive ASCII interface allows the user to easily communicate with the device through Zaber Console (our free software), as well as third party terminal programs.

The X-MCB1 is backwards-compatible with all of Zaber's existing T-Series and A-Series products. When daisy-chained with several units, the X-MCB1 can also share a single power supply with multiple X-Series products. The X-MCB1 controller can be used for stepper motor control of any of the following products:

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
