DMC-40x0 - Ethernet/RS232 Accelera Motion Controllers, 1-8 Axes

Supplier: Motion-Solutions

The DMC-40x0 motion controller is Galil's highest performance, stand-alone motion controller.


It belongs to Galil's latest generation motion controller family: the Accelera Series, which accepts encoder inputs up to 22 MHz, provides servo update rates as high as 32 kHz, and processes commands as fast as 40 microseconds-10 times the speed of prior generation controllers.

The DMC-40x0 is a full-featured motion controller packaged with optional multi-axis drives in a compact, metal enclosure. The unit operates stand-alone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100Base-T or RS232. The controller includes optically isolated I/O, high-power outputs capable of driving brakes or relays, and analog inputs for interfacing to analog sensors.

The DMC-40x0 controller and drive unit accepts power from a single 20-80 VDC source. The DMC-40x0 is available in one through eight-axis formats, and each axis is user-configurable for stepper or servo motor operation.

Features of DMC-40x0 - Ethernet/RS232 Accelera Motion Controllers, 1-8 axes:
