SynqNet® motion controllers offer maximum servo performance and flexibility for demanding motion systems. OEMs can use MechaWare® and Bode Tool™ to implement perfect-fit control solutions using “off-the-shelf” hardware. The SynqNet network provides the convenience and low cost of 100BaseT cabling with the benefits of real-time determinism.

Available only in North America

Motion Programming

The MPI (Motion Programming Interface) is an object-oriented C/C++ programming library for use with SynqNet® motion controllers. You can also program SynqNet motion controllers using the MPX library, a Windows-based .NET API for programming in Visual Basic and other ActiveX-enabled environments.

MechaWare Programming

Kollmorgen’s MechaWare™ mechatronic toolkit allows you to create advanced servo control algorithms and embedded routines using the MATLAB®/Simulink® graphical workspace from The Mathworks. A library of over 80 function blocks allows for rapid development, validation and instant download onto production-ready hardware.
