Tarocco allows the use of brushed motors with CNC machine controllers that communicate using the popular step and direction signal interface. As the controller receives step pulses at certain frequency, it will try to spin the motor immediately while reading the encoder signal, ensuring the number and frequency of encoder pulses correspond to the step signal. It essentially allows to drive a brushed motor as a stepper motor of not just, 800, 1600, or even 3200 steps per revolution, but the resolution of the quadrature encoder you use, which can be any value you need. If the controller, for some reason, cannot make the motor reach the desired position, it will signal the other controllers in the system, allowing them to stop their respective motors in time to avoid messing up the printing or cutting job.
The controller can deliver up to 360 W (36 V 10 A) continuously to a motor, making it a good choice for machines that need to accelerate bigger loads or where high speed motion is required. It also features a current limiting function, useful for protecting the motor from overheating and for controlling the amount of torque exerted on the machine.
