- Galil Motion Control
The DMC-21x5 is the latest addition to the Econo family and is an easy upgrade path from the long running DMC-21x3 series. The DMC-21x5 utilizes nearly all of the same peripherals as the DMC-21x3 controller, making the transition simple. The main difference between the DMC-21x5 and its predecessor is a state of the art ARM based processor that places its communication, command processing and memory capabilities on par with Galil’s line of current generation motion controllers, while still remaining at the Econo Series price of the DMC-21x3.
The DMC-21x5 is available in one through eight axis formats where each axis is user-configurable for stepper or servo motor operation. Standard programming features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed forward, multitasking for simultaneously running up to eight programs, and I/O processing for synchronizing motion with external events.
Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, linear and circular interpolation, PVT, contouring, electronic gearing and electronic cam (ECAM).
Like all Galil controllers, the DMC-21x5 controllers use Galil’s popular, intuitive command language allowing for a user friendly interface. Galil’s servo design kit software (GDK Pro) further simplifies system set-up with auto-servo tuning and real-time display of position and velocity information.
