The EdiTasc software is, due to its flexible architecture, used for the control of milling machines, machine tools and robots.
EdiTasc supports a variety of motor types and interface cards. About 16 driver types are available, that are fully compatible with one another.
That means an EdiTasc controlled system with stepper motors can be redesigned as a system with servo motors with the same user-interface, and can utilize the same control programs.
EdiTasc is an open system, due to the universal scripting-language MTASC, which gives access to many hardware specific settings.
Through its own scripting language, EdiTasc is flexible and freely configurable, and can also be configured by the user with the appropriate training. All PLC functions such as tool changes, etc. are also implemented in this way.
RTCP (Rotating Tool Center Point) refers to the ability of the controller to keep the tool tip at a defined position or path in Cartesian coordinates XYZ, while simultaneously controlling its orientation using two angular parameters.
A fast path control for up to 16 axes. Optionally this can be done in real time, if e.g. an EtherCAT master is running on the PC..
The axes can be combined into independently interpolating groups.
A wide range of controller types is supported. Currently in particular digital controllers via EtherCAT and stepper motor controllers via USB module up to 8 axes.
Excellent compromise between optimized speed and accuracy.
