Arduino automation - free as a bird!

Automation to position stepper motors with ease.

With the Arduino open source prototyping platform there are benefits of a wide-spread, standardised development environment for automation projects. As a customer-oriented company for ambitious projects we appreciate the features of an open and flexible development environment.

Integrate this open source environment via open interfaces with high performance motor driving technology and benefit from well-proven technology frequently used in optical systems, industrial applications or scientific experiments.

To enable you to use our high-end power stage for driving a stepper motor, we have developed an interface board to integrate our APS power stage technology seamlessly into the Arduino world. The Arduino Shield and the APS power stage achieve high precision positioning combined with smooth running. With up to 70 VDC The APS ist also suitable for high rpm, highly inductive and high-resolution stepper motors. Combining these capabilities, the APS Shield empowers you to attain highly ambitious applications in science, prototyping, model making or installation art.
Of course, you can also use the APS to drive our precision stepper motors for more down to earth applications and in the most extreme of environments.
