Hallo 
What microcontroller can use for my project? It should be able to;

  1. Control a Two-axis motion system that uses stepper motors.
  2. Also, have web service capability for remote control of the two-axis motion system.

    Thanks.

How good are you with Microcontrollers?

Using a Stepper motor with web service capability is no easy task, if you just getting started then ARDUINO will be a great choice bcs you have a strong community support.

 

All the best with your project ! 

Keep us updated and we will help you in the way we can.

I am fairly good with Microcontrollers, I have the option of using a PLC. Which one do you think will be easier to implement?

Depends on lot of parameters!!

Hi Mark,

Choosing between MCU or PLC is itself a huge topic to discuss, I cannot suggest you anything particular because it depends on lot of parameters, PLC will be the best choice if your system is going to work inside a noisy environment like an industry but then, you have to compromise on your project cost as working with PLC is a bit expensive. 

If you are confident with MCU's then choose tm4c123 since its being widely used for mainstream applications due to its M4 Cortex architecture. 

ALL THE BEST!!
