The DMC-1700 & DMC-17x8 for the ISA bus is a member of the Optima Series, Galil's latest generation of multi-axis motion controllers. Designed to fit in a single ISA slot of a PC, the DMC-1700 controllers accommodate 1- through 8-axis formats and allow control of step or servo motors on any combination of axes. Any mode of motion can be programmed including linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and ecam. Programming the DMC-1700 is simplified with 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.
Features of ISA BUS Motion Controllers
Accepts up to 12 MHz encoder frequencies for servos and 3 MHz for steppers
Advanced PID compensation with Velocity and Acceleration feedforward, integration limits, notch filter and low-pass filter. Sample times to 62.5 microseconds per axis
Modes of motion include jogging, point-to-point positioning, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing and ECAM
Multitasking for concurrent execution of up to eight application programs
Non-volatile memory for application programs, variables and arrays
Dual encoders, home input and forward and reverse limits accepted for every axis
8 Uncommitted inputs and 8 outputs for 1- through 4-axes models, 16 inputs and 16 outputs for 5- through 8-axis models
8 uncomitted analog inputs
64 configurable I/O on 1- through 4-axis DMC-17x8 option. Or use the DB-14064 expansion board on 5-8 axis cards.
