Solutions to common motion control and I/O problems are addressed in new two-minute videos from Galil Motion Control. Designed for busy engineers, the videos are a technical resource to help engineers get a quick start on motion projects. "We added this technical resource to our Website to offer relevant solutions in a format that can be quickly accessed and easily viewed," says Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing at Galil.

Currently available videos show how to achieve smooth multi-axis motion through arbitrary points; demonstrate how to achieve precise temperature of a liquid; introduce the RIO Pocket PLC; and present commonly-used features of Galil's Accelera Series motion controllers.

Galil plans to add videos frequently to build a library of solutions. Future videos will show how specific motion problems can be solved, and provide additional how-to explanations and demonstrations.

Founded in 1983, Galil was reportedly the first company to produce a microprocessor-based servo motor controller without tachometer feedback. Since then, more than 500,000 Galil controllers have been installed.
The videos are available online for no charge.
