Greenville, DE- Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing their latest drive option for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series.  The new DMC-30016 combines a single-axis motion controller with a 1.4A/phase stepper drive in a compact unit.

“The DMC-30016 joins the growing family of drive options for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series which includes the previously released DMC-30012 800W Brushless Sine Drive and DMC-30017 6A/phase Microstepping Drive”, said Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing.  “Like other products in the DMC-30000 Series, the DMC-30016 offers higher performance, better power efficiency, smaller size, and a lower price than prior generation, single-axis controllers.

The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A per phase, 30V stepper amplifier which drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ¼ step or 1/16 step.  The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5A to 1.4A per phase in 10mA increments at 12-30 VDC.

Designed for compact size, the dimensions of the DMC-30016 controller/drive package are 3.9” x 5.0” x 1.5”, and no external heat sink is required.

Like other products in the DMC-30000 series, the DMC-30016 is higher speed than Galil’s prior generation single-axis controllers.  The 125 microsecond servo loop update time is twice as fast and the 15MHz encoder frequency and 3 MHz stepper pulse output are 25% faster.  Other features of DMC-30000 controllers 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-chainable 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.

The DMC-30016 controller and stepper drive unit is $645 U.S. in single quantity and $415 US/ea in quantities of 100.  The DMC-30016 is available for immediate delivery.

In addition to the DMC-30012 controller & servo drive, DMC-30016 controller & stepper drive and DMC-30017 controller & microstepping drive packages, the DMC-30000 Series is also available as a controller-only model which can be connected to a stepper or servo motor amplifier of any power range.

Interview on Engineering TV with Karl Meier.   4 minute video.

Bill Wong of Electronic Design magazine talks to Karl Meier, Marketing Manager at Advanced Motion Controls about EtherCAT and DXM Technology for very efficient industrial networking.

OEM’s are continually challenged to provide motion control precision at lowest possible cost.  Precision has been given a boost with the advent of EtherCAT®, an open Ethernet-based network standard setting new heights for real-time performance and topology flexibility, and has been the fastest growing area in motion control technology.   Advanced Motion Controls has created exclusive ‘DxM’ – Demultiplexed Motion technology allowing connectivity of up to 3 DZS drives (sub-nodes) to a single DZE (node) on an EtherCAT® network for up to 4 axes of servo motion.  Removing the cost of additional EtherCAT® nodes greatly reduces overall system cost.  ‘DxM’ Technology handles all sub-node activity easily through one node, making master tasks much simpler in multi-axis systems.
