Fully integrated 4 axis motion controller for automated photography
SCE2-MOTION is a compact controller designed for robotic photography, controls motor actuators, and triggers DSLR camera. It is based on 4 channel stepper motor controller SCE2-M module. The controller is running open-source GRBL firmware capable of advanced scripting and complex movements.
Compact design with extra heat dissipation capabilities.
- Dimensions: 64 x 58 x 16.5mm
- Weight: 87g
SCE2-MOTION can be controlled by any G-code sender like Candle, Universal-G-Code-Sender, and many more. Most of these software packages lack the g-code generator part. So highly specialized open-source programs had to be created from scratch.

Code is written with Python it can be run on any modern operating system, even Raspberry Pi
Default GRBL settings
Each actuator combination needs individual settings to be fine tuned. Below settings are for:
GRBL settings for fastest speed under light load:
$0=6 $1=255 $2=0 $3=31 $4=1 $5=0 $6=0 $10=19 $11=0.010 $12=0.002 $13=0 $20=0 $21=0 $22=1 $23=15 $24=50.000 $25=200.000 $26=250 $27=5.000 $30=1000 $31=0 $32=0 $100=111.110 $101=5039.370 $102=111.110 $103=111.110 $110=20000.000 $111=2000.000 $112=20000.000 $113=20000.000 $120=2000.000 $121=100.000 $122=2000.000 $123=2000.000 $130=360.000 $131=90.00 $132=360.000 $133=360.000
Firmware is open-source GRBL based running on STM32 microcontroller.
DSLR control headers
SCE2-MOTION has 4 outputs available. Controller is shipped with connected optocoupers (safe to connect to expensive DSLR camera). But for ease of customization control signals can be wired directly. See not populated resistors.
