NextMove PCI-2 Motion Controller from ABBNextMove PCI-2 Motion Controller from ABB

NextMove PCI-2 is a compact (7″) PCI based controller for the control of up to 8 axes of motion. A single card can control up to 4 axes of servo and 4 axes of stepper. On board I/O can be used to control many parts of the machine. This can be further expanded with CANopen devices conforming to the standard DS401 I/O profile.

Versatile programming is provided by means of MINT – multitasking BASIC or the supplied ActiveX components.

NextMove PCI-2's large Dual Ported RAM (DPR) allows for fast data transfer between the PC application and NextMove PCI. NextMove PCI-2 is ideally suited in applications where fast data transfer is required, for example high speed contouring applications.


  • PCI short card (7 inches) compliant to PCI Local Bus specification v2.2. Not compatible with PCI Local Bus specification v3.0, PCI-Express, PCI-X, Mini PCI, CompactPCI or PCI-104.
  • 100-pin high density EMC compliant connector interfacing to optional breakout board
  • 32-bit 120MHz Digital Signal Processor (DSP) offering over twice the performance of the NextMove PCI motion controller
  • 2MByte SRAM for storage of firmware, user programs and data
  • 12kByte NVRAM for non-volatile parameter storage
  • Up to 8 axes of control on one card - 4 servo and 4 stepper
  • 20 uncommitted PNP/NPN isolated digital inputs
  • Programmable for hardware limits, home input, stop input and error input. 4 of the inputs can be programmed for high speed capture of position with 1 microsecond
  • 12 uncommitted opto-isolated digital outputs. PNP or NPN options available
  • Programmable for drive enable and high speed position compare output
  • 24V/150mA relay output to signal system error conditions
  • 4 x 12-bit uncommitted analog inputs
  • Master encoder input for synchronization
  • 32kByte Dual Port RAM (DPR) interface with host interrupt capability
  • CAN interface for I/O expansion and HMI interfaces conforming to CANopen DS301. Can be used to provide full peer-to-peer networking capabilities with other MINT based controllers
  • Multitasking programming capability with MINTMT. Number of tasks limited only by available memory
  • Comprehensive move types including: linear, circular and helical interpolation; software cams; flying shears; splines; synchronization with positional offsets and virtual axes
  • ActiveX libraries supplied free of charge
  • Compatible with Windows 9x/ME/NT4.0/2000/XP/Vista
  • Compatible with MINT-NC and HPGL
