Motor Controllers

Available in Analog and Digital versions

Our motor controllers can be configured to operate at 4 preset speeds (more for the digital) or infinitely variable speeds ranging from 0 to 55,000 RPM.

Our motor controllers have been specifically designed to optimize the performance of our polygonal scanners. We will work within your requirements to select the best option available for your application.

The digital controller can be set up to operate with TTL signal inputs and outputs like the analog controllers.

It can also be set up to accept commands through either serial or ethernet connections. Contact Lincoln Laser to discuss your application.
