VLC-1-07 / VLC-1-13 Single Axis DC Brushed/Brushless Controller

(VLC-1-07 / VLC-1-13)

The VLC-1-07 and VLC-1-13 controllers are a standalone integrated controller/servo drive that is used for the control of brushed/brushless industrial linear actuators and motors. The VLC-1-07 and VLC-1-13 implement a mnemonic type command instruction set via a standard serial (UART) communication interface. These commands can be executed directly or used to create programs that can be stored in the on-board flash memory.
