New DMC-30016 Pocket Motion Controller from Galil Motion Control

Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing their latest drive option for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series. The new DMC-30016 combines a single-axis motion controller with a 1.4A/phase stepper drive in a compact unit.

Greenville, DE- Galil Motion Control, an industry leader in motion control technology, is announcing their latest drive option for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series. The new DMC-30016 combines a single-axis motion controller with a 1.4A/phase stepper drive in a compact unit.


"The DMC-30016 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", said Lisa Wade, vice president of sales and marketing. "Like other products in the DMC-30000 Series, the DMC-30016 offers higher performance, better power efficiency, smaller size, and a lower price than prior generation, single-axis controllers.

The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A per phase, 30V stepper amplifier which 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 12-30 VDC.

Designed for compact size, the dimensions of the DMC-30016 controller/drive package are 3.9" x 5.0" x 1.5", and no external heat sink is required.

Like other products in the DMC-30000 series, the DMC-30016 is higher speed than Galil's prior generation single-axis controllers. The 125 microsecond servo loop update time is twice as fast and the 15MHz encoder frequency and 3 MHz stepper pulse output are 25% faster.

Other features of DMC-30000 controllers include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, non-volatile memory for user programs, multitasking for simultaneously running up to four programs, and I/O processing for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing, ECAM, and PVT.

The DMC-30000 provides optically isolated inputs and outputs as a standard feature. I/O include forward and reverse limit inputs, homing input, 8 uncommitted digital inputs, 4 uncommitted digital outputs, 2 uncommitted analog inputs and 1 uncommitted analog output. Two daisy-chainable Ethernet ports are included and an external Ethernet hub is not required. A 115 kb RS232 port is also provided. The ability to receive inputs from two digital encoders is a standard feature. BiSS, SSI and sinusoidal encoder input formats are available as options.

The DMC-30016 controller and stepper drive unit is $645 U.S. in single quantity and $415 US/ea in quantities of 100. The DMC-30016 is available for immediate delivery.

In addition to the DMC-30012 controller & servo drive, DMC-30016 controller& stepper drive and DMC-30017 controller & microstepping drive packages, the DMC-30000 Series is also available as a controller-only model which can be connected to a stepper or servo motor amplifier of any power range.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
