Low-Cost Stepper Drive for DMC-30000 1-Axis Ethernet Motion Controller

The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A/phase, 30V stepper drive in a compact 4.0" x 5.0" x 1.5" package.

Galil is announcing the DMC-30016 1-axis motion controller packaged with a 1.4A/phase Stepper Drive in a single, compact unit. It joins the growing family of drive options for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series which includes the previously released DMC-30012 800W Brushless Sine Drive and DMC-30017 6A/phase Microstepping Drive.


The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A/phase, 30V stepper drive in a compact 4.0" x 5.0" x 1.5" package. It drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ¼ step or 1/16 step. The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5A to 1.4A per phase in 10mA increments at 12-30VDC. No external heatsink is required.

The DMC-30016 controller/stepper drive is cost-effective at $645 U.S. in single quantity and $415 U.S. in quantities of 100.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
