Servo2go has added Galil Motion Control’s Econo Series Motion Controller with Ethernet – the DMC-41×3 Series – to its range of Ethernet-based Motion controllers.

The product offers enhancements over the Econo motor controllers, including Ethernet 100Base-T, a USB 2.0 port, higher speed performance, larger program memory, analogue inputs and optically isolated I/O.

‘Compared with the older DMC-21×3 Econo Ethernet controller, the DMC-41×3 controller offers many speed improvements and can accept encoder inputs up to 15MHz and close-the-loop as fast as 62 microseconds,’ said Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing at Galil.

‘It also offers twice as much memory for user-programs and arrays,’ she added.

The DMC-41×3 operates standalone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100Base-T or USB and an auxiliary RS232 port is also provided.

The product is available in one through eight-axis formats and each axis is user-configurable for stepper- or servo-motor operation.

The controller can be connected with external drives of any power range or with Galil’s multi-axis (500W per axis) servo drives or 60V, 3A microstepping drives.

Galil drives install directly onto the DMC-41×3 controller, fitting inside the metal enclosure and saving space, cost and wiring.

Standard I/O of the DMC-41×3 controller includes 16 optically isolated inputs and outputs for the one- to four-axis models and 32 I/O for the five- to eight-axis models.

Eight analogue inputs are provided, in addition to optically isolated forward and reverse limits and a home input for each axis.

Other controller features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, memory for user programs, multitasking for simultaneously running up to eight programs and I/O processing for synchronising motion with external events.

Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing, ECAM and PVT.

The DMC-41×3 is available as a card-level product or packaged in a metal enclosure.

Like all Galil controllers, the DMC-41×3 controllers are programmed with Galil’s intuitive two-letter command language, making them easy to program.

Galil Tools’ software simplifies system set-up with automated servo tuning and real-time display of motion information.
