Pure EtherCAT Controller Handles up to 32 Drives & 2 I/O Modules

Aug. 5, 2016

DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master is a pure EtherCAT controller with the ability to control up to 32 drives and 2 I/O modules. This space-efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for easy integration into any EtherCAT application.

The DMC-52xx0 is offered in 2, 4, 8, and 16-axis formats (32 axis coming soon). Coordinated moves can be done within banks of up to 8 axes allowing for minimal changes of Galil’s programming language. The DMC-52xx0 operates in Cyclic Synchronous Position mode (CSP). In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the Galil controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz. Galil supports a host of EtherCAT devices for virtually any application.

Suitable for applications involving:

  • jogging
  • point-to-point positioning
  • position tracking
  • contouring
  • linear & circular interpolation
  • electronic gearing
  • ECAM
  • PVT
