so get on with it :-)

is this what is required for the long awaited analog controller? or could that be done in hardware alone?

If they say it can't be done- I find a way!

Best to do it in hardware such as an analog controller. Running anything important, it is best to stay outside of the General Windows OS. And yes there IS a realtime componet available for windows BUT very expensive and complicated to use.

There are many thousands of machines out there waiting to be upgraded to a modern controller.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

No, the analog controller we have in development closes the loop to the motion controller with the encoder connected to the motion controller,
then it acts the same way as if a positioning servo drive was connected externally, the difference is that the motion controller makes the positioning PID loop, not the external servo drive,
so the motion controller is aware of the motor position and it acts on the position error using the PID control loop.
There is no need for realtime Windows for this to work as the realtime position is not needed to be available on Windows, it has to be available only in the motion controller.
