Over its lifetime, KFLOP has accumulated thousands of satisfied
customers around the world who are using the KFLOP for a number of applications. In particular, the CNC community has embraced the
KFLOP to run a wide variety of mills, presses, lathes, and other machining equipment.
KFLOP is easily customizable to control a variety of motor types
(DC Brush Motors, Brushless Motors, Stepper Motors) as well as
other physical devices. KFLOP provides low-latency, guaranteed,
real-time deterministic response
. Because of this, KFLOP relieves a host computer
from real-time requirements (i.e. Windows is not real-time, KFLOP is).
When combined with our free software, KFLOP offers a complete motion control solution to generate
Step and Direction pulses for use with 3rd Party Motor Amplifiers. Or connect up to 2
Dynomotion SnapAmps that generate current to up to 25 Amps
per axis. Other applications will benefit from connecting our Kanalog I/O expansion board. Both the
SnapAmp and Kanalog boards enable the use of Differential Encoders, among other things. For
intense stepper motor applications, our KSTEP may be the perfect add-on to your KFLOP.
Here are just a few highlights of the KFLOP:
- Real-time motion control that relieves the host computer of that duty
- High Performance 1.2 GFLOP DSP
- 64-bit Double Precision Hardware Math
- All 8 axes are sampled every 90 microseconds
- USB 2.0 Full Speed Host interface (or run stand alone)
- 16 MBytes RAM
- Digital I/O
