Check out this site:


and follow the Multi-Axis control link. AML offers a PCI SERCOS (fiber-optic) controller for 2 - 32 axes, that runs under WinNT.

From personal experience, the application works fairly well for up to 29 axes, much better for
fewer than 8.

The AML Motion language is an object-oriented motion control language capable of co-ordinating
multiple axes using virtual gear trains and calculated profiles.

If all you need is forwards and backwards, why do you need servos? There are numerous motion control boards that will do this fo you (these days I'm recommending Douloi at "": , but they are reasonably expensive. If you have your choice of servo, get one that can run without a motion control board in positional or velocity mode. Examples; Indramat Ecodrive, A-B Ultra 5000, Animatics SmartMotor.
