Delta Tau

Laser galvanometer interface

Delta Tau has released a laser galvanometer interface for its Power PMAC motion controllers. The device simplifies and improves controls for laser scanning applications, including laser marking, PCB processing, micromachining and medical device manufacturing.
The interface is based on the laser industry’s XY2-100 communication standard. It allows a single motion controller running a unified program to take over every aspect of a laser scanning process.
