Brick Motion Controller from Delta TauBrick Motion Controller from Delta Tau

The Brick Controller can provide control signals for up to 8 channels of an externally connected amplifier and optionally 8 more motors over MACRO (fiber optic or RJ45 connection) for 16 total axes of control possible.

Brick Controller uses a panel mount form factor for easy mounting and wiring.


  • Motorola DSP 56k digital signal processor
