Simucube & IONI



IONI drives virtually any type of industrial servo motor including AC, Brushless DC, Brush DC, Linear servo motors and stepping motors from 5 Watt to 700 Watts. Whether the application requires position, velocity or torque operating mode, IONI handles them all out-of-the-box. Built-in motion profiler enables simple point-to-point moves as well as continuous synchronous motion tracking.

SimuCUBE is a complete simulator force feedback controller for single motorized actuator such as a steering wheel or a force feedback lever. Typical SimuCUBE applications include vehicle and equipment simulators.

IONI servo drive was made possible by building on the latest and greatest components available today. This do not only save space, but also drastically reduce number of parts to be paid and fail.

IONI is solely made out of the highest grade components from the most reputable hi-tech companies such as Texas Instruments, ST Microelectronics and Infineon.


Simucube

SimuCUBE reduces number of simulator components to a bare minimum. It does not only control the force feedback motor, but also reads inputs of various controls, such as pedals, shifters and buttons.
From software point of view, everything is accessible through a standardized USB Human Interface Device (HID) protocol. On Windows®, force effects may be easily operated with the industry standard DirectInput API.


How it compares

IONI Pro IONI Pro HC
Mates With Low voltage servo or stepping motors.
Motors AC, BLDC, DC, Linear, Stepper
