The Kensington 4000D-A 5-axis controller is designed to work with various Kensington stages and robotic fixtures. This controller will accept up to five axis driver cards and can be configured with multiple user and I/O interfaces. The controller is highly modular and consists of a 250w switching power supply module, the mother board, the controller processor board, and the optional axis driver cards (one devoted to each axis of motion). The controller was upgraded from an ‘A’ version to the ‘D’ version in 1996, but in the meantime the main processor board has been pulled from the system (which is where most of the differentiation occurs). This is basically a shell with the power supply and the upgraded mother board..

Optional controller items include an IEEE-488 interface, a second RS232C interface, and an operator interface connector. The axis boards also can be configured with an optional counter / lock piggy-back board. This instrument is configured as follows:

No axis boards present.
No controller board present
Serial number: 96 259 13
Two axis board power transistor pairs and harnesses present
GPIB connector and internal harness (the missing RS232C port is a part of the processor board – the GPIB harness plugs into a socket on the processor board)

The axis boards are generic but have to be matched to the individual stage elements by using trim pots on the board. Each axis motion system typically includes a DC motor, a DC tachometer, and a position encoder. Equipment needed for calibration / matching is rudimentary – a terminal connected to the Main Port Interface, and a 10MHz oscilloscope capable of displaying X-Y Lissajous patterns.

The controller housing is in excellent condition. It is in the rack-mount configuration (includes rack-ears but lacks feet).
