National Instruments 7340 Series Stepper/Servo Motion Controllers

  • Up to 4 Axis of Motion
  • Each Axis Configurable as Stepper or Servo
  • 3D Linear and Circular Interpolation
  • 3D Contouring
  • 62ms PID Loop Update Rate


The National Instruments 7340 Series is a combination servo and stepper motor controller for PXI, Compact PCI, and PCI bus computers. These motion controllers for end-users and machine builders who need to develop powerful applications quickly and easily. These devices have 4 general-purpose analog inputs that you can use in simple monitoring applications or as feedback for closed-loop control. The 7340 Series provides fully programmable motion control for up to 4 independent or coordinated axes of motion, with dedicated motion I/O for limit and home switches and additional I/O for general-purpose functions.

The PCI-7342 controller combines servo and stepper functionality for PCI bus computers and has high-performance capabilities due to the advanced dual-processor architecture. This controllers first-in-first-out (FIFO) bus interface and powerful function set provide high-speed communications while offloading complex motion functions from the host PC for optimum command throughput and system performance. It provides motion control for up to 2 independent or coordinated axes of motion. The PCI-7342 can be used for point-to-point and straight-line vector moves for stepper and servo motor applications.

The 7344 controllers are a combination of servo and stepper motor controllers for PCI, PXI, and 1394 bus computers. They can be used for point-to-point and straight-line vector moves for stepper motor applications.

The 7334 controllers are exclusively stepper motor controllers for PCI and PXI bus computers. These controllers add the ability to perform arbitrary and complex motion trajectories using stepper motors or servo devices.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
