      Machines today are designed with many novel mechanical configurations which allow for greater simplicity of design, lower cost, and higher precision.  Unfortunately, simplicity in the mechanics results in a system where moving in a straight line involves profiling multiple motors in complex trigonometric trajectories.  Using a motion controller to perform these coordinate transformations allows an operator to command the machine in a familiar coordinate system. Each of the motors perform the required profile in order to smoothly move the load along the desired path. 

Introducing the New DMC-42x0 Ethernet Controller

dmc4280-vert_7909_107x250.pngThe new DMC-42x0 controller is the latest addition to the Accelera family.  The DMC-42x0 shares most firmware features with its counterpart the DMC-40x0, including servo update rates as high as 16 kHz and command processing as fast as 40 microseconds.  The layout and connectors are identical to the prior generation DMC-2xx0 controllers (DMC-21x0 and DMC-22x0), making the DMC-42x0 ideal for those upgrading current systems.  Users will be able to take advantage of the DMC-40x0 performance yet keep wiring, form factor, and other hardware intact.  

[White Paper] Galil Controller Delivers High Bandwidth Response on ALIO Stage

      Industries that rely on motion control are demanding faster and more accurate control systems for their applications.  The semiconductor and medical industries in particular require ever increasing speed and precision for inspection and diagnostic purposes.  Fast system response coupled with nanometer range positioning requires careful design and implementation.  Manufacturers working to meet these requirements face higher costs and longer development times as a result.  By supplying cutting edge hardware and system analysis tools, Galil takes the guess work out of servo system design and tuning, allowing developers to bring superior products to market faster. 

The New DMC-3x014

Galil is introducing a new single axis linear drive package: the DMC-3x014.  The new DMC-3x014 contains a 20W linear brushless servo drive with sinusoidal commutation.  The transconductance linear amplifier has an operating gain of 0.2 A/V, with a current loop bandwidth of 4 kHz.  The amplifier can drive brushless motors operating at up to 1 Amp continuous, and 2 Amp peak at 15-40 VDC.
