November 26, 2018 – Galil introduced the DMC-40x0 stand-alone motion controller. It belongs to Galil's motion controller family, which accepts encoder inputs up to 22 MHz, provides servo update rates as high as 32 kHz, and processes commands as fast as 40 microseconds. The DMC-40x0 is a motion controller packaged with optional multi-axis drives in a 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, 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. With a RISC processor, the DMC-40x0 controllers provide such features as PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, program memory with multitasking for simultaneously running eight applications programs, and uncommitted I/O for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and ecam.
