New Controller for Piezo Motors
MICROMO is pleased to announce that PiezoMotor Uppsala AB (Sweden), leading provider of linear and rotary high end positioning systems, is announcing the latest drive option for the high precision Piezo LEGS® motor series. The new DMC-30019 is a single-axis controller based on architecture from Galil Motion Control, Inc.
“Galil makes high end controllers that are widely used within areas like semiconductor, medtech, automation, optics and research” says Olle Lindkvist, Marketing Manager (PiezoMotor). “Engineers worldwide can now benefit from familiarity of the Galil control interface when they design systems using piezoelectric motors. The Piezo LEGS® motor, together with the new DMC-30019, gives outstanding performance in high precision applications.”
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. PiezoTools software further simplifies system set-up with real-time display of position and velocity information.
