Galil has just released the latest model in the DMC-40×0 Accelera Motion Controller Series. There is now a -C022 option that provides two Ethernet ports for easy-daisy chaining of multiple controllers. The -C022 option is available for 1- through 8-axis versions of the DMC-40×0 motion controller. For example, DMC-4060-C022 specifies a 6-axis model with dual Ethernet ports.

Galil DMC-4000 Motion Controller

The DMC-40×0 is part of Galil’s latest generation Accelera series. Based on a powerful RISC processor Accelera controllers provide ultra high-speed with 40 microsecond command processing,  up to 32kHz servo update rates, and acceptance of encoder inputs up to 22MHz. Other features include optically isolated inputs and outputs, high power outputs for driving brakes and relays, uncommitted analog inputs, dual encoder inputs for each axis, and plenty of program memory for storing application programs.

The DMC-40×0 provides precise control of a variety of motors including brush servos, brushless servos, steppers and piezo ceramic motors. It can be easily connected to external drives of any size or to internal multi-axis drives contained within the DMC-40×0 controller.  The DMC-40×0 controllers with internal drives reduce space, cost and wiring. Table 1 shows the  multi-axis drive options available for the DMC-40×0 series.

Internal multi-axis drive options

As a combined controller and drive unit, the DMC-40×0 is compact and measures 8.1” x 7.25” x 1.72” for the 4-axis model and 11.5” x 7.25” x 1.72” for the 8-axis model. The unit accepts power from a single DC supply between 20-80VDC.

add a comment

Applied Motion Products is pleased to announce the addition of eight integrated drive+motors to our line of Ethernet and EtherNet/IP motion control products.

STM23 with Ethernet and EtherNet/IP

The new STM23 models fuse a high performance motion controller with 100 MBit Ethernet communications to a high torque NEMA23 step motor.  Connecting to an Allen-Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogix or MicroLogix PLC?  EtherNet/IP is also available. 

The STM23Q-2Ex provides 125 ounce inches of torque, while the longer STM23Q-3Ex produces 210 ounce inches.  Both models are available with an optional 4000 count/rev optical encoder, safely housed inside, that can detect and prevent motor stalls using Applied Motion’s proprietary stall prevention algorithm.  Our auto tuned digital current control provides smooth, quiet motion, while an advanced anti-resonance algorithm with electronic damping allows for maximum torque utilization, rapid acceleration, and fast settling times.

Software applications can communicate with the STM23 in real time, using the SCL and Q languages over standard 100 megabit Ethernet cabling, addressing and protocols.  Ethernet can transmit data at 100 times the speed of CANopen and more than 1000 times faster than RS-232 and RS-485.  The number and types of devices that can share a network are practically unlimited.

Even if you are just programming a Q drive for standalone operation, the Ethernet option can be more convenient than chasing down a USB-serial converter and trying to remember which COM port it uses.  Just plug the drive into your office network, install our free, easy to use software, and you’re ready for programming and configuration.

EtherNet/IP with Applied Motion Drives February 17, 2012

Posted by Servo2Go.com in Technical Support Information.
Tags: , ,
add a comment

EtherNet/IP was introduced in 2001 and today is the most developed, proven and complete industrial Ethernet network solution available for manufacturing automation. EtherNet/IP is a member of a family of networks that implements the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) at its upper layers. CIP encompasses a comprehensive suite of messages and services for a variety of manufacturing automation applications, including control, safety, synchronization, motion, configuration and information. As a truly media independent protocol that is supported by hundreds of vendors around the world, CIP provides users with a unified communication architecture throughout the manufacturing enterprise.

EtherNet/IP offers several unique advantages for manufacturing automation applications:

  • Complete producer-consumer services let you simultaneously control, configure and collect data from intelligent devices over a single network or use a single network as a backbone for multiple distributed CIP networks
  • Compatible with standard Internet protocols – e.g. HTTP, FTP, SNMP and DHCP – and standard industrial protocols for data access and exchanges such as OPC
  • Compliance with IEEE Ethernet standards provides users with a choice of network interface speeds – e.g. 10, 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps – and a flexible network architecture compatible with commercially available Ethernet installation options including copper, fiber, fiber ring and wireless

Galil’s DMC-300xx Pocket Motion Controller is Smart, Compact and Low Cost November 10, 2011

ROCKLIN, CA — Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing the DMC-300xx Pocket Motion Controller Series, their latest generation, single-axis Ethernet motion controller. It combines a high performance motion controller and a 800Watt sine drive in a low cost, compact 3.9 in. x 5.0 in. x 1.5 in. package. The DMC-300xx is also available as a controller-only model which can be connected to a stepper or servo motor amplifier of any power range. Using a 32-bit RISC processor and improved power technology, the DMC-300xx provides higher speed, better power efficiency and smaller size than their prior generation controllers. The DMC-300xx is designed for single-axis motor control applications where compact size, low cost and remote location are important.

Galil's DMC-300xx Pocket Motion Controller

The DMC-300xx is higher speed than Galil’s prior generation single-axis controllers; The 125 µs servo loop update time is twice as fast and the 15 MHz encoder frequency and 3 MHz stepper pulse output are 25% faster.

“A powerful new feature of the DMC-300xx is that it provides two 100Base-T Ethernet ports which can be daisy-chained,” said Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing. “This allows multiple units to be connected without the use of an Ethernet hub.”

The DMC-30012 model is packaged with an 800 W amplifier for driving brushless servo motors at 20–80 VDC, up to 10 A continuous, 15 A peak. The fully digital, transconductance amplifier is a sinusoidally commutated brushless motor amplifier which minimizes torque ripple compared to drives using trapezoidal commutation. This is especially important for applications using low friction linear motors. The amplifier provides commands for initialization of the brushless motor using either hall sensors or encoder feedback.

Other features of the DMC-300xx motion controller 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-300xx 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. The DMC-300xx accepts position feedback from both a main and auxiliary encoder. Quadrature encoder feedback is standard with BiSS and SSI formats available as an option. A 115 kb RS232 port is also provided.

The DMC-30012 controller and 800W drive unit is $695 U.S. in single quantity and $445 U.S. in quantities of 100. The DMC-30010 controller-only unit is $295 U.S. in 100 quantities.

The DMC-300xx is available for immediate delivery.
