IONICUBE is a 1-4 axis motherboard for IONI Servo Drives. IONICUBE provide four slots for IONI drives as well as terminals and connectors for motor power, feedback devices, I/O and SimpleMotion V2.


IONICUBE has been designed multiaxis robotic systems such as CNC machines in mind. On-board features include:

  • Carry up to 4 IONI drives
  • On-board regenerative braking resistor
  • Support end-of-travel switches and homing switches
  • Motor holding brake outputs & drivers for each axis
  • Two 26 pin I/O and setpoint signal connectors
    • X4 connector is directly connectible to traditional CNC controllers (parallel port, SmoothStepper etc).
    • X5 connector for extra I/O for drives and analog setpoint inputs for custom applications
  • No separate break-out-boards needed
  • Charge pump enable input for safety
  • E-stop switch input (safe torque off)
  • PWM to 0-10V converter for VFD spindle
  • Two drivers for external relays
  • ARGON Servo Drive compatible encoder connector pin-out
  • RJ45 connectors for SimpleMotion V2 usage and configuration
  • On-board 1.5A 5V regulator to power drive logic and feedback devices
