Digitaler Motion Controller

EtherCAT Master With 2, 4, 8, 16 or 32 Axis

The DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master is a pure, small and space-saving EtherCAT controller. It can control up to 32 drives and 2 I/O modules in an EtherCAT network. The DMC-52xx0 simplifies configuration and programming with just a handful of EtherCAT configuration commands and Galil's intuitive two-letter programming language. The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 axis formats. Coordinated steps can be performed within eight banks, minimizing changes to the Galil programming language. Galil supports a variety of EtherCAT drives for most applications. The DMC-52xx0 operates in cyclic synchronous positioning mode (CSP). In this mode, the servo control loop on the EtherCAT drive is closed while the Galil sends motion profile data at a rate of 1 kHz. The DMC-52xx0 has 8 unassigned, opto-isolated inputs and 8 high-power outputs. It also contains 8 unassigned analog inputs and 8 unassigned analog outputs. A 100 Mbps Ethernet port and a USB port (serial) are available for communication with a host PC or external devices.
