What User Interfaces Can I Use with Zikodrive Motor Controllers?

Simple pots, switches and buttons?

Depending on your requirement there are a number of potential motor control interface options which can offer simple or more in depth control as required.

Potentiometers and buttons/switches are the simplest form of user interface which will work with the Zikodrive range of stepper motor controllers and brushless ESCs. In combination with the programmability of all of our controllers these can be set up to operate in pretty much whatever way you might want. Typical methods usually involve having a pot as a speed control and buttons for stop/go and forward/reverse but we have sometimes added additional controls for features such as current control and microstepping. The simplest thing to do if you have something slightly more customised in mind is to give us a call or an email and we will tell you what we can do.

Stepper motor controllers or brushless ESCs with LCD displays and visual interfaces

 Not all of our controllers can be set up to work with LCD displays but the ZDLCD series of stepper motor controllers shows what can be done by adding an LCD screen. Again, there are virtually limitless options available in terms of screen sizes, resolutions etc. and everything can be custom set up to what you require. If you have something specific in mind or something that you would like to work with your project please just ask.

To see a specific case study example of how we can develop this type of system you can view the Boxer Pumps iD Stepper Motor Controller Case Study.
