This paper describes teaching equipment for instruction in motor control developed in the Electronics Department of the University of Alcala, Spain. This project (called Project DEDALO) involved the development of complete electronic equipment for studying and carrying out experiments on the control of stepper, medium and low-power DC and brushless motors. The use of a personal computer as user interface (for the setting up of different types of motors and controls, display of the control structures, signal display, generation of commands, etc.) makes the equipment very easy to use and highly versatile
