The ADAM-5240 from the Industrial Automation Group of Advantech (Cincinnati, OH) is a 4-axis stepping/ pulse-type servo motor control module for use with the ADAM-5550 series PACs (Programmable Automation Controllers). The module simplifies stepping and pulse-type servo motor control.

The ADAM-5240 is embedded with an intelligent novaR MCX314-motion ASIC card which includes various motion control functions, such as two/three-axis linear interpolation, two-axis circular interpolation, programmable T/S-curve acceleration/deceleration rate, and position management. The module performs these functions without processor loading during driving.
