Lanmark Controls Inc., Boxborough, MA, has released its WinLase LAN 5.0 laser marking software for companies using laser marking applications requiring motion. The new software eliminates the need to purchase costly PC cards to control a step motor and enables users to easily communicate with the new smart motors, such as the IMS MDrivePlus motor + driver.
With WinLase LAN 5.0, users have the ability to send commands directly to the motor – without having to install a PC card or write commands – as well as string up to 32 motors in a daisy chain and control them from any computer, including a laptop.
WinLase LAN 5.0 is compatible with Windows 7 Professional and supports Lanmark’s LEC-1 Ethernet-based scan controller cards. The software offers simplified management for multiple, networked laser marking systems, an intuitive, easy-to-learn interface, flexible architecture, and simple installation.
