Galil Logo SnippetGalil manufactures a wide range of single and multi-axis motion controllers designed to solve a wide range of motion control applications.  For clarity, the controllers are broken down into their respective communication formats.  The most common PC based solution is the plug and play PCI Bus.  Other PC based form factors include ISA, VME, CompactPCI, and PC/104 boards.  For applications where a Stand-Alone controller (not dependant on a PC) is needed, there are controllers with RS232, USB and Ethernet connectivity.

Galil’s Single / Multi-Axis Motion Controller Platforms includes:

Galil Controller Accessories

Galil also provides many accessories such as interconnect modules and cables for fast and easy prototyping. Software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, and an ActiveX Tool Kit speed system development.  In addition, Galil offers servo motors and amplifiers to complement its line of controllers.

Since their introduction of the first microprocessor-based motion controller in 1983, Galil has remained the industry’s leading innovator.  Galil’s unparalleled array of motion controllers – for both stepper and servo motors – is backed by superior technical support and can accommodate the most demanding applications – with absolute precision.

Over 500,000 controllers sold worldwide!

Features include:

  • Currently supports Windows, Ubuntu, Red Hat, and Fedora.
  • C interface for maximum compatibility and portability.
  • Extensive examples and support for multiple compilers.
  • Open source component allows modifications in the field.
  • Open source implementation of the GalilTools Communication Library (Galil.h) for existing code.

In February Galil introduced a new C application program interface (API) library.  This library gives programmers access to powerful routines to interact with Galil motion controllers in a wide variety of application development environments.  To download the APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) click on  http://www.galil.com/downloads/api

Servo Solutions For Mobile Automation Challenges

With automation expanding out of the factory, machine builders are faced with a varying set of new challenges.  Mobile platforms, such as unmanned systems, are expected to operate in extreme environments and carry their own power source; all while being light weight and compact.

To meet the current and future needs of the market, enabling technologies need to be applied and discovered.  At the forefront of the enabling technologies are servo drive controllers.

Servo controllers not only make a robot or mobile platform move, they can also be solutions to the other design requirements.  A servo is an integral component to any mobile solution and can help with power efficiency, communication, agility and dexterity.  This webinar will touch on the challenges presented to robot designers and how servo drives can make them successful.

Galil Now Offers EPICS Driver Baselines October 3, 2014

Posted by Servo2Go.com in New Product Press Releases, Technical Support Information.
Tags: , , , , ,

EPICS stands for Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System.  It is a set of open source, distributed software tools used extensively for scientific instruments such as particle accelerators, telescopes, and other large-scale experimental installations.  Using EPICS, scientists are able to network together arbitrarily complex systems of nodes, such as motion controllers, PLCs, instrumentation, and other software and hardware agents.  Using a read/write protocol called Channel Access, the Input/Output controllers (IOCs), can interact while providing high-level functionality and interaction for sophisticated physics applications.

Galil now offers the EPICS Driver Baseline.  As shown in Illustration 1, this software provides communication drivers and device support to create a Galil EPICS IOC.  The software comes with the basic support needed for building a feature-rich IOC including the following:

– Support for the DMC-3x01x, DMC-4000, and DMC-41×3 Ethernet based controllers.  Galil communications libraries allow extension to PCI-based controllers such as the DMC-18×6, DMC-18×2, and DMC-18×0.  The array access feature allows easy extension to Galil’s line of RIO-47xxx PLCs.

– Basic Motor Record Support, which is an EPICS IOC Record designed specifically for motion controllers.  See Table for some example fields imn the EPICS Motor Record.

Using the EPICS Channel Access feature, Galil array data can be read and written directly from the EPICS network.  Coupled with DMC code embedded on the controller, the EPICS user can easily extend the EPICS support to any desired Galil firmware feature or programmable function.  The array access feature, which is part of the Galil EPICS driver, allows quick deployment in an EPICS system without requiring a deep knowledge of EPICS IOC development.

Advanced Motion Controls EtherCAT Servo Amplifiers

Advanced Motion Controls EtherCAT Servo Amplifiers

Advanced Motion Controls has released four new EtherCAT Z-Drives to expand on the existing DZEANTU-020B080 EtherCAT node drives and the DZSANTU-020B080 sub-node drives.   Extending the  DigiFlex Performance product line AMC’s EtherCAT communication servo drives provide for multiple feedback devices in a variety of power platforms.   Advanced Motion Controls EtherCAT products consist of panel mount and plug-in servo drives to allow for quick prototyping and ease of system integration.   Panel mount DPE drives serve as nodes in single or multi-axis EtherCAT networks, while plug-in DZE/DZS drives utilize AMC’s unique, proprietary high speed multi-axis communication interface and I/O expansion capabilities (‘DxM’ and ‘DxI/O’ Technologies).   Now a single EtherCAT node can accommodate a combination of up to 4 axes of motion with 32 digital inputs, 32 digital outputs, 4 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs each.

The result is a highly integrated high value motion control solution for single or multi-axis applications. – See more at:

Tips for using Galil Optoisolated Outputs Video

Galil has recently added a new video to its growing library of 2-minute instructional videos.  This latest video gives recommendations for wiring and supply voltages when connecting to the optically isolated outputs on Galil controllers.  This video focuses on best practices for connecting the outputs between the controller and load, and for connecting an external power supply to assure true optical isolation is maintained.  Proper connections when using the various output options such as sourcing or sinking, supply voltages, and current ratings are discussed. Techniques for by-passing the optical isolation circuitry are also presented. >>Watch Video
