Galil's motion controller, the DMC-1417, is designed to handle demanding applications. Courtesy: GalilGalil Motion Control’s PCI BUS Econo Motion Controller, The DMC-1417, is designed to handle demanding applications with such features as an extra encoder input for electronic gearing, program memory with multitasking, uncommitted I/O and user-selectable stepper or servo motor control. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing and e-cam.

Programming the DMC-1417 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, ActiveX Tool Kit for Visual Basic users and a C-Programmers Tool Kit. The Econo Series controllers do not include uncommitted analog inputs and are not optoisolated.

 

Features include:

  • Accepts up to 8 MHz encoder frequencies for servos and 2 MHz for steppers
  • Advanced PID compensation with Velocity and Acceleration feed forward and integration limits
  • Modes of motion include jogging, point-to-point positioning, contouring, electronic gearing and ECAM
  • Multitasking for concurrent execution of two application programs
  • Memory for application programs, variables and arrays
  • Accepts inputs from two encoders for gearing or dual-loop applications
  • 7 Uncommitted digital inputs, 3 digital outputs
  • High Speed position capture · Forward and reverse limits and home input
  • Sinusoidal commutation for brushless servo motors
  • 37-Pin D-type connector
  • Custom hardware and firmware options available
