8SMC1-USBh is compact, all-in-one, low cost microstep stepping motor driver with high functionality and modern USB interface. It is designed to drive one bipolar stepping motor by local and/or remote means. The 8SMC1-USBh incorporates PWM chopper type sinusoidal micro step bipolar stepping motor driver, fully integrated mixed-signal System-on-a-Chip MCU, USB controller and 3-port USB hub on one board. Controller features include built in over temperature, over voltage, short circuit and reverse supply protections. The built-in powerful MCU on the 8SMC1-USBh allows the user, via USB interface, to control all parameters such as position, acceleration/deceleration ramps, velocity, direction, resolution, drived current, etc., to form simple or complex motions. All parameters can be saved on PC or in MCU flash memory. The 8SMC1-USBh has a variety of built-in functions, including local control, programmable limit switch inputs, homing algorithm, quadrature encoder or revolution sensor support, additional input/output for synchronization.


Standa manufactures a diversity of motorized devices such as translation stages, rotation stages, attenuators and other equipment. All stepper motors used in STANDA's motorized devices can be controlled by 8SMC1-USBh controller. Controller can be used to drive motorized devices of other manufacturers if stepper motor parameters match specifications for 8SMC1- USBh microstep driver.


   Microstep driver 8SMC1-USBh comes with a suite of advanced software tools for control and tuning your stepping motors, third-party software development, upgrading firmware. All tools operate on Windows 2000/XP.
   SMCVieW (see picture) is a friendly graphical user interface for control, monitoring and tuning your stepping motors. It can also be used for easy setup and save/load of all parameters for each stepping motor. Interface supports up to 30 drivers simultaneously.
