The DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4 A per phase, 30 V stepper amplifier which drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ΒΌ step or 1/16 step.  The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5 A to 1.4 A per phase in 10 mA increments at 12-30 V dc.

Designed for compact size, the dimensions of the DMC-30016 controller/drive package are 3.9-in. x 5-in. x 1.5-in., and no external heat sink is required.

The DMC-30016 has a 125 microsecond servo loop update time that is twice as fast and the 15 MHz encoder frequency and 3 MHz stepper pulse output are 25% faster. Other features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, non-volatile memory for user programs, multitasking for simultaneously running up to four programs, and I/O processing for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing, ECAM, and PVT.

The DMC-30000 provides optically isolated inputs and outputs as a standard feature. I/O include forward and reverse limit inputs, homing input, 8 uncommitted digital inputs, 4 uncommitted digital outputs, 2 uncommitted analog inputs and 1 uncommitted analog output. Two daisy-chain Ethernet ports are included and an external Ethernet hub is not required. A 115 kb RS232 port is also provided. The ability to receive inputs from two digital encoders is a standard feature. BiSS, SSI and sinusoidal encoder input formats are available as options.
