DMC-30000 Motion Controller Now Available with Microstep Drive, 16-bit ADC and Sinusoidal Encoder

DMC-30017 Microstepping Stepper motor controller and drive

Galil’s recently released DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series offers higher performance, better power efficiency, smaller size, and a lower price than prior generation, single-axis controllers. A popular product in the series is the DMC-30012 which combines a single-axis motion controller and 800W brushed/brushless sine drive in a single, compact package. Now, Galil introduces another controller/drive package, the DMC-30017 which contains a 6A microstepping drive. Also available is the new DMC-31xxx option which features a 16-bit ADC and sinusoidal encoder input option.

New Drive Options for DMC-40x0 and DMC-41x3 Multi-axis Controllers

Galil’s DMC-40x0 Accelera and DMC-41x3 Econo Ethernet motion controllers are now available with additional multi-axis servo and stepper drive options. The AMP-43540 4-axis 600W brushless sine drive is now available in a 2-axis model as the AMP-43520, and the SDM-44040 4-axis stepper drive is available with 2-axis as the SDM-44020. The new 2-axis drive options provide additional cost savings for OEM applications.
