DMC-41X3 - Multi-axes Ethernet-based programmable motion controller. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The DMC-41X3 was introduced to provide the performance of a high end state-of-the-art controller at a price within the reach of OEM customers in developing economies such as India and China.

The DMC-41x3 motion controller is Galil's latest generation Econo motor controller. Compared with the DMC-21x3 Econo controller, the DMC-41x3 offers the following enhancements: 100BASE-T Ethernet, aux RS232 port, USB port, uncommitted analog inputs, accepts 15 MHz encoder frequencies, and faster sample frequencies.

The DMC-41x3 also accommodates the same stepper and servo motor drive used in the DMC-40x0 Accelera series and allows two 4-axis 500 W drives to be installed in the 8-axis controller package. The DMC-41x3 is available as a box-level or card-level motion controller. The unit operates stand-alone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100BASE-T, or USB. It includes optically isolated I/O in addition to analog inputs and outputs.

The DMC-41x3 controller and drive unit accepts power from a single 20-60 V dc source. The DMC-41x3 is available in one through eight axis formats, and 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.
