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:
Packaged controller in 1 through 8 axis versions: DMC-40x0 where x=1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 axes
(1) 10/100 Base-T Ethernet port with Auto MDIX; (2) RS232 ports up to 115 kbaud
User-configurable for stepper or servo motors on any combination of axes
Accepts up to 22 MHz encoder frequencies for servos; Outputs up to 6 MHz for steppers
Sample times as low as 31 microseconds per axis; fast command processing.
Advanced PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, integration limits, notch filter and low-pass filter
Modes of motion include jogging, point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing and ECAM. Ellipse scaling, slow-down around corners, infinite segment feed and feedrate override
