National Instruments PCI-7342 Motion Controller Device

Featured with a real-time embedded OS and multiaxis interpolation, the National Instruments PCI-7342 (Part Number: 778916-02) is a 2-axis Motion Controller Device for servo/stepper motors.  This model offers fully coordinated gearing, linear, and circular control. For complex moves, it can also provide a contouring capability. The integrated CPU uses an embedded operating system with event-oriented multitasking control. With this configuration, multiple motion control programs can be operated by the Controller efficiently without any lags and with zero outside interaction unless initiated by the user or host program.

The NI PCI-7342 has 32 digital I/O channels. Each of these general purpose I/O lines can be accessed through a separate, dedicated digital I/O connector (68-pin). The 32-bit digital I/O port is configured as four 8-bit digital I/O ports. All digital I/O lines on this Motion Controller have programmable polarity and direction. Each output circuit can source and sink up to 24 mA. This model offers two PWM (pulse width modulation) outputs through its digital I/O connector. These PWM outputs are used to generate software controller periodic waveforms.

Though the RTSI connector provided, quick synchronization with other PCI based compatible devices can be achieved quickly. The PCI-7342 and various other RTSI-capable devices can be connected by means of a ribbon cable. This Controller allows users to implement a maximum of eight RTSI trigger lines as breakpoint outputs or as trigger inputs. This Controller weighs around 170 g and consumes 5.7 Watts of power while operating in the standard configuration.

PCI-7342 End of Life Status has been announced by National Instruments, but will still be available for purchase and repairs by Apex Waves.

National Instruments PCI-7342 Frequently Asked Questions

 

Question: Can I use a digital output on the PCI 7342 to drive relays in my system?

 

Answer: Yes, you can use snubber circuitry to drive relays while using the PCI 7342.

 

Question: Which connector and cable are compatible with the NI PCI-7342?

 

Answer: The connector and cable to use with the NI PCI-7342 will depend on the drive and feedback method that you plan to use. If you use an NI servomotor drive, you will want the SHC68-C68-S. If you use a third-party motor drive, you need a breakout unit.

 

Question: I have a PCI-7342 device, but it shows up in MAX as PCI-7340, not PCI-7342.

 

Answer: The PCI-7342 is a type of NI-7340 device. Whether you have 7342, 7344, or 7348, it will show in MAX as 7340. The last two numbers indicate how many axes are available on your board. In MAX, it will have the option to configure 2 axis if you are using the PCI-7342.
