The DMC-40x0 motion controller is Galil's finest performance, stand-alone motion controller. It belongs to Galil's hottest generation motion controller family, 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 previous generation controllers. The DMC-40x0 is a full-featured motion controller packaged with optional multi-axis drives in a compact, metal enclosure. The unit functions stand-alone or interfaces to a PC with Ethernet 10/100Base-T or RS232. The controller includes optically isolated I/O, high-power outputs suitable 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. With a powerful RISC processor, the DMC-40x0 controllers have such advanced features as PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed-forward, program memory with multi-tasking for simultaneously flowing eight applications programs, and uncommitted I/O for synchronizing motion with external functions. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and e-cam. Like all Galil controllers, programming the DMC-40x0 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software approaches such as GDK for servo tuning and analysis.
