Class PIMercuryStep

This class supports the C-663 Mercury Step stop motor controller from Physik Instrumente (PI). Up to 16 controllers can be connected to one interface by a daisy chain. An object of this class talks to all controllers connected to the same interface. Since a controller controls exactly one motor, this class uses the word "axis" as a synonym for "controller".

Usage

Please note, that the instrument driver uses micro-steps (1/16 step) as unit for positions etc. When using the RS232 interface, only LabVIEW and VISA are required. When using the USB interface, you need to install the USB driver that is shipped together with the controller. This driver has been developed using Firmware version 1.06 and has been tested with Firmware version 1.10.
