GALIL MOTION CONTROLS:
Galil Motion Control, Inc. specializes in providing microprocessor-based motion controllers for the purpose of controlling motors with utmost precision. With over 500,000 motion controllers working worldwide in industries ranging from medical and semiconductors to textiles and material handling, Galil is the recognized pioneer and leader in the industry. Galil is distinguished from all others by providing motion controllers that are powerful, easy-to-use, cost-effective and backed by strong support.
The DMC-40x0 is a full-featured motion controller packaged with optional multi-axis drives in a compact, metal enclosure. The unit operates stand-alone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100Base-T or RS232. The controller includes optically isolated I/O, high-power outputs capable of driving brakes or relays, and analog inputs for interfacing to analog sensors. The DMC-40x0 controller and drive unit accepts power from a single 20-80 VDC source. The DMC-40x0 is available in one through eight-axis formats, and each axis is user-configurable for stepper or servo motor operation.
Galil's DMC-21x3 Ethernet motion controllers are designed for extremely cost-sensitive and space-sensitive applications. These controllers are typically half-the-price and half-the-size of box-level Ethernet controllers. These intelligent, card-level controllers can be purchased with plug-in, multi-axis amplifier boards which eliminate wiring between the controller and drives.
The DMC-18x6 PCI bus controllers belong to Galil's latest generation motion controller family: the Accelera Series. Incorporating a 32-bit Risc-based microcomputer, these new controllers offer high-speed performance and processing power. Speed improvements include acceptance of encoder inputs up to 22 MHz, servo update rates as low as 24 microseconds/axis, and command execution speeds as low as 40 microseconds. While the DMC-18x6 offers performance enhancements compared to prior generation controllers, the programming language and 100-pin SCSI connector are virtually the same, making conversion to the DMC-18x6 quick and easy.
