|Introducing the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT Master. Galil’s First 32 Axis Motion Controller!
Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Galil Motion Control introduces the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master, Galil’s first 32 axis motion controller. This new addition to Galil’s EtherCAT family is a pure EtherCAT controller with the ability to control up to 32 drives and 2 I/O modules. This space efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for easy integration into any EtherCAT application.
The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2, 4, 8, and 16 axis formats (32 axis coming soon). Coordinated moves can be done within banks of up to 8 axes allowing for minimal changes of Galil’s programming language. The DMC-52xx0 operates in Cyclic Synchronous Position mode (CSP). In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the Galil controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz. Galil supports a host of EtherCAT devices for virtually any application. See the list below for more details.
Designed to solve complex motion problems, the DMC-52xx0 can be used for applications involving jogging, point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing, ECAM and PVT. The DMC-52xx0 makes configuration and programming easy with just a handful of EtherCAT configuration commands and Galil’s intuitive, two-letter programming language.
The DMC-52xx0 comes with one Ethernet port for communication with a host PC and one EtherCAT port to communicate with EtherCAT drives. Multiple EtherCAT drives can be linked together in a daisy chain configuration and connected to the controller’s EtherCAT port, simplifying wiring and decreasing setup time. One USB port is also provided for alternative communication with a host PC. The DMC-52xx0 is packaged in a compact metal enclosure measuring 9.75” x 5.00” x 1.60” and is powered by a single 90-250 VAC supply.
