Cadac PMC (Programmable Motor Controller)

Produced for

Cadac Ltd (Now Wellington Drives)



Project details

The Cadac PMC program used a custom designed serial protocol to allow a PC to configure a motor controller and display the results. This program was written so that it could be complied for both DOS text mode and OS/2 PM. It was used to graph the actual speed of a washing machine motor against the target speed and show the results of changes to the PID variables on the microcontroller. The micro on the controller board include 16 bit signed floating point code to allow the implementation of full PID type controller.
