We decided to buy the SDC (step and direction) controller in the end, which we can control directly from our Delta Tau hardware.
is the overall experience with Delta Tau? Have
you standardize on Delta Tau for all of your motion
However we've been having some problems with repeatability, so we might be looking into other options - the MCS RS-232 controller could be a possibility. Let us know how you get on.
Thanks for the information.
will also investigate the IMS solution implemented by our
support Photon Controls and Data Acquisition at LCLS.
The are using MForce Drive/Controller which interface to RS422/RS485.

Subject: Re: SmarAct positioner control system
I haven't found anything on the EPICS website, but thought it was
asking just in case. Has anybody come across any EPICS support for
SmarAct MCS (Modular Control System)? It uses an RS-232 interface to
control 3 positioners with sensor feedback.
We are also interested in the SmarAct as well.
We are looking at the "MCS-3C-IDS, RS-232 Interface"
The idea is to add this support to the motor support package via
