The DMC-1417 can handle the most demanding applications with features such as an extra encoder input for electronic gearing, program memory with multitasking, uncommitted I/O and user-selectable stepper or servo motor control. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing and e-cam.
Programming the DMC-1417 is simple using two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, ActiveX Tool Kit for Visual Basic users and a C-Programmers Tool Kit. Econo Series controllers do not include uncommitted analog inputs and are not optoisolated.
The DMC-1417 can accept up to 8 MHz encoder frequencies for servos and 2 MHz for steppers and can accept inputs from two encoders for gearing or dual-loop applications. It also features advanced PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed forward and integration limits as well as modes of motion including jogging, point-to-point positioning, contouring, electronic gearing and ECAM with multitasking for concurrent execution of two application programs.
The DMC-1417 also features sinusoidal commutation for brushless servo motors, memory for application programs, variables and arrays, as well as 7 uncommitted digital inputs, 3 digital outputs, and forward and reverse limits and home input. A 37-Pin D-type connector is standard with custom hardware and firmware options available as well.
