Motion Controls latest PC based 32 bit PCI motion control card AMT-PCI-MC4 is a truly industrial motion control board with ground braking features and price performance. The card has both four axes of servo and four axes of stepper control, with upto 16 digital outputs and 16 digital inputs and all come with a high level of protection against noise. The control card can also have fitted an optional dual CAN interface and upto four channels of analog input. This AMT-PCI-MC4-S is supplied with Windows drivers and a DLL for customers who want to create there own Windows applications or Amtech's own GNC for Windows control software can be purchased.



  • Servo / Stepper control
  • Full linear, circular & helical interpolation
  • Continuous non-stop contouring, with look ahead for corners and small radius
  • GNC language with over 50 commands
  • Full colour animated graphical simulation
  • Fully configurable user interface
  • Variable and parameter programming
  • Nested subroutines and conditional repeat loops
  • CAD/CAM Interface with DXF & HPGL input (Not GNC Lite)
  • Easy to use program editor


DXF and HPGL Interface (Not GNC Lite)

Because the speed of part program generation is one of the most important parts of an efficient control system; GNC comes with a DXF or HPGL interface program converter. This allows CAD systems to interface directly to GNC. You can produce a DXF or HPGL file on your CAD system and then pass it to GNC for immediate conversion, allowing the operator to select a start point and directions. GNC will also allow the automatic addition of a 3rd dimension such as the raising or lowering of a cutting head, thus converting a 2D CAD drawing into a 21/2D program.
