Ethernet/RS232 Stand-Alone Motion Controllers
1 - 8 Axes Stand-Alone Econo Series Motion Controller
Galil's DMC-21x2 and DMC-21x3 motion controllers for the Ethernet are designed for extremely cost-sensitive and space-sensitive applications. Performance specifications are similar to the Optima series, but with some features removed for reduced cost such as uncommitted analog inputs, optical isolation and metal enclosure (if you need these features, select the DMC-21x0 Optima controller).
The DMC-21x2/x3 series is available in one through eight axis versions and can be configured for control of step or servo motors on any combination of axes. The card-level controller measures just 4.25" x 7.0" for one through four-axis models and 4.25" x 10.75" for five through eight axes. Any mode of motion can be programmed including linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and ecam. Programming the DMC-21x2 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, and the ActiveX Tool Kit for Visual Basic users.
The DMC-21x2 uses a 100-pin high-density connector for each set of four axes and requires Galil's Cable-100 between the controller and ICM-2900 interconnect module. The DMC-21x3 uses a 96-pin DIN connector and does not require a cable between the controller and associated interconnect boards. Special interconnect boards mount directly on top of the DMC-21x3 and are available with on-board drives for stepper motors, servo motors or D-type connectors for inteface to other motors and drives.
