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

Galil Provides Custom Motion Controllers and PLCs to Meet Project Specifications February 18, 2014

Galil is focused on providing the best motion control and PLC solutions to customers quickly and cost-effectively.  If our standard product offering does not satisfy a customer’s requirements, we will build a special controller that can.  Over the years we have produced thousands of custom hardware and software solutions; more than 50% of our customers use customized motion controllers and PLCs in their machines.

Galil Custom Controller

Galil Custom Controller

Custom motion controllers and PLCs consist of hardware and/or firmware modifications.  An example of a hardware solution might include a unique form factor, special connectors, user-specified communication interfaces, integrated amplifiers, or additional I/O.  Our hardware specials have a typical lead time of 12 weeks for prototypes with an NRE cost as low as $1000.00 US.

Controller firmware modifications may include coordinate transformation, ceramic motor control, custom filters or even custom I/O commands.  The cost for custom firmware starts as low as $400 US.

The typical lead time is 2 weeks for minor modifications and up to 8 weeks for a more complicated solution.

The process of creating a custom motion controller or PLC requires iterative collaboration between Galil and the customer. The procedure for requesting and receiving a custom controller is:

• A customer brings a special request to our engineering team.

• An engineer on the team works closely with the customer to define the solution.

• Once it’s defined, the Galil team writes a detailed specification and generates a quote. The quote includes charges for engineering, the estimated lead time and the unit price at the specified quantity (we give quantity discounts).

• The customer reviews the specification and quote, signs it and sends it back to Galil.

• The customer issues a purchase order.

• Galil’s R&D team develops the custom solution, tests the solution, and documents the changes.

• The solution is delivered to the customer within the specified time frame.

• After delivery to the customer, Galil’s engineering team continues to provide technical support free-of-charge during implementation at the customer site.

Galil is committed to delivering the best standard or custom controller solution to our customers, along with superior technical support for the life of the project.

Galil Motion Controllers Support 2-Phase Closed-Loop Brushless (Step) Motors December 2, 2013

You don’t have to purchase a servo motor anymore for accurate positioning!  Now you can save money and achieve the positional accuracy you need for your high torque, slow speed application with Galil’s integrated, high power (8 Amps continuous), 2-phase drive for closing the loop on a step motor.

Galil DMC-30017 Motion Controller

Galil DMC-30017 Motion Controller

Two types of electrical motors have traditionally been used in automation applications; step motors with open loop operation and servo motors with incremental or absolute feedback.

Step motors are low cost, easy to use and are prime candidates for applications that require slow movement, high torque and low positional accuracy.  Feedback for step motors isn’t necessary because the current is kept constant through the phases which allow a position to be held with a fairly high level of static torque.

Step motors are not candidates for applications that require positional accuracy, smooth motion, fast speeds or power efficiency.

Applications that require accuracy and smoothness typically need servo motors with analog or digital feedback, where the motion controller provides a PID filter or something similar.  3-phase brushless motors are higher cost, and require more effort to stabilize than step motors, but they handle fast or slow speeds with perfect accuracy and smooth motion, at all times.

There are some occasions when applications desire the benefits of step motors but also need the accuracy of a servo motor.  Additional accuracy can be achieved on step motors with half, quarter, and microstepping motion.  While these modes provide some advantages, they do not reach the level of positional accuracy achievable with a servo motor.

A solution for these distinct applications can be a closed-loop step motor.  Adding a feedback device to the step motor, and controlling it like a servo motor, achieves the positional accuracy of a servo motor.  In this configuration the step motor acts like a 2-phase brushless servo motor.  Because it’s acting as a servo motor, current is only drawn when it is needed greatly improving the power efficiency and eliminating wasted heat.  However, like an open loop step motor, this solution provides high torque at low speeds. The closed loop step motor will not achieve as high speed or run as smoothly as a 3-phase brushless DC servo motor.

This solution is available on the DMC-30017 and the DMC-40×0.  Please contact a Galil Application Engineer to review which option will work best for your system.
