Hello to all community members.

I have just received to my e-mail this new and very improved servo controller:

You can find product details at: http://www.01mech.com/supermodified


I copy the following from the site:


Attribute
Benefit
PID Speed / Position control Accurately adjust your servo’s rotation speed according to your project’s needs
Profiled position/speed control No more jerky motions on your robots, only smooth transitions from one setpoint to the next
Velocity feedback Feedback on the exact speed of your motor – produce more efficient algorithms and better overall robot behaviour
Incremental position feedback Feedback based on a 0.08° increments! Store your position in EPROM and recover it after RESET
Absolute position feedback Know your robot’s joint positions straight after controller initialisation. Store your position in EPROM and recover it after RESET
Additional I/Os Use your Supermodified to also control other devices with 4 available GPIOs on the Supermodified™ MCU board
Additional analog inputs Get feedback from analog sensors with 4 analog inputs on the Supermodified™ MCU board
Ambient temperature measurement Avoid overheating the ‘guts’ of the servo by knowing ambient air temperature
Current feedback Avoid excessive stresses and easily calculate torque-demand on your servomotor during operation by knowing the motor’s current consumption
Bus interfaces (I2C, RS485) Everything is on the comms bus! Up to 127 (wt. I2C, TWI interface), 248 (wt. RS485 interface) Supermodified™ nodes can be controlled by a single host
Form Factor Control electronics, absolute feedback element, motor drive electronics, motor and gearbox now fit inside a servo. No more messy boards and wires

That looks very cool, I'm definitely impressed. I look forward to seeing more about his project.

This would be perfect for making an antenna pointer/tracker. Or a pan/tilt system. Never seen a sensor like that.
This is not just a magntometer and a magnet. It has quadrature output like an encoder. Must be a magnetic encoder :)) Cool.

EMI will be problem for this type.

Can this be used to control (postion, speed, trapozoidal motion profile etc.) an ordinary brush type DC motor (12v or 24v 1-6A,p) with quadrature encoder?
