Galil Motion Control announced 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 controller contains a 1.4A per phase, 30V stepper amplifier which drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor. 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 percent 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.
