Galil is pleased to announce our latest firmware release, revision 1.2, for the DMC-40×0 and DMC-41×3. This release provides an increase in program memory from 2000 x 80 characters to 4000 x 80 characters, and an increase in the total array elements from 16,000 to 24,000.
The DMC-40×0 comes in a box-level format and delivers ultra-high speed with specifications that include acceptance of encoder inputs of up to 22 MHz, servo sample periods as low as 32 microseconds, and command processing times as low as 40 microseconds for application programs. The DMC-41×3 comes in both box-level and card-level formats and delivers precise control in a low-cost package. Both highly successful multi-axis controllers have up to 8-axes, can handle any mode of motion, have built-in Ethernet ports for easy daisy-chaining, include uncommitted isolated digital inputs and outputs and uncommitted analog inputs.
Both controllers provide precise control of a variety of motors including brush servos, brushless servos, hydraulic servos, steppers and piezo ceramic motors. They can be easily connected to external drives of any size, or to internal multi-axis drives contained within the box. Controllers with Built-in internal drives reduce space, cost and wiring. Table 1 shows the multi-axis drive options available for the DMC-40×0 and DMC-41×3 series.
