The motion controller operates stand-alone or can be networked to a PC via Ethernet. Features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed forward, program memory with multitasking for concurrent execution of four programs, and uncommitted optically isolated inputs and outputs for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, PVT, electronic gearing and electronic cam.
Like all Galil motion controllers, these controllers use a simple, English-like command language which makes them very easy to program. GalilTools software further simplifies system set-up with “one button” servo tuning and real-time display of position and velocity information.
