The motor controller is the hub of the agitation system. It controls the speed and direction of the motors* and provides them with power.
The motor controller can, when connected to a wall power outlet via a motor controller power adapter (ART NO 01-0110-01), link together up to 15 brushless stepper motors**.
Note: This is the "smart agitation" version of the motor controller, meaning that it does not require an external 0-12 V DC speed signal sent from a Bioprocess Control system and is not recomended to be used in connection with such a system as it provides a more limited feature set compared to the "standard" version. For usage with a Bioprocess Control system, instead please see motor controller, standard (ART NO 01-0109-01).
*The motor controller is specifically designed for Bioprocess Control's brushless stepper motors and will not work with different designs.
**All motors in the chain recieve identical signals and thus will rotate at the same speed. Individual speed control is not available.
