Introducing the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT Master. Galil’s first 32 axis motion controller

Galil Motion Control introduces the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master, Galil’s first 32 axis motion controller. This new addition to Galil’s EtherCAT family 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. See the list below for more details.

Designed to solve complex motion problems, the DMC-52xx0 can be used for applications involving jogging, point-to-point positioning, position tracking, contouring, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing, ECAM and PVT. The DMC-52xx0 makes configuration and programming easy with just a handful of EtherCAT configuration commands and Galil’s intuitive, two-letter programming language.

The DMC-52xx0 comes with one Ethernet port for communication with a host PC and one EtherCAT port to communicate with EtherCAT drives. Multiple EtherCAT drives can be linked together in a daisy chain configuration and connected to the controller’s EtherCAT port, simplifying wiring and decreasing setup time. One USB port is also provided for alternative communication with a host PC. The DMC-52xx0 is packaged in a compact metal enclosure measuring 9.75” x 5.00” x 1.60” and is powered by a single 90-250 VAC supply.

The depths of the ocean: Technology for uncharted worlds

Learn more in driven, the maxon motor magazine

We know more about the surface of the moon than the depths of the ocean. That’s no surprise given the conditions there. And yet, an ever increasing number of sophisticated vehicles are making their way down to the ocean floor. driven, the maxon motor magazine, also goes on a dive and brings back surprising facts and stories.

Sophisticated robotic vehicles, autonomous or controlled via cables, are exploring the world underwater in search of scientific data, natural resources, or sunken shipwrecks. The technologies used must be able to resist aggressive salt water and huge ambient pressures. Learn more about how such systems are tested and where they are used: in the latest issue of driven – the maxon motor magazine.

In the world of drives, the motor often takes center stage. However, a powerful motor controller is just as important. Our expert explains what capabilities a motor controller needs and what solutions maxon has to offer. We will also discuss a key question: DC or BLDC motors? Last not least, driven is looking at the latest developments in the field of exoskeletons that allow people with mobility impairments to walk again.

SHA-CG Hollow Shaft Actuators from Harmonic Drive LLC

Harmonic Drive LLC, a leader in high precision motion control introduces new actuators with surface run-out less than 10 microns. The SHA-CG  models are the newest offerings in the company’s Rotary Acutator product category.

Harmonic SHA-CG Actuator

Harmonic SHA-CG Actuator

The SHA-CG actuators feature a compact, hollow shaft configuration for design versatility in demanding applications. Ideal for machine tool applications, the SHA Series of brushless actuators provide high torque for fast acceleration and positioning. SHA-CG actuators are composed of a Harmonic Drive® CSG zero-backlash gear combined with a brushless servomotor with an encoder resolution at the output up to 20,971,520 pulse/rev.

The actuators are also available with an optional brake. Positional accuracy better than 1 arc-min and repeatability better than ±5 arc-sec is achieved while delivering up to 3,400 N m of torque. A robust cross-roller bearing allows mounting of large loads directly to the actuator without the need for additional support.

The SHA-CG has a Torque to Weight ratio as much as 8 times greater than comparable housed direct drive motors, and a Torque to Volume ratio as much as 6 times greater. This allows for a more compact and light-weight machine design.

Known for its expert engineering and manufacturing, Harmonic Drive LLC products are relied upon every day for precision motion control.

SHA-CG Specifications:

  • High Accuracy:  Zero-backlash Harmonic Drive® gear reducer
  • Hollow Shaft diameter:   17-45mm

Slotless Zero Cogging Motor Kits from AppliMotion feature ultra smooth operation

Applimotion’s UTS Series Slotless Direct Drive Frameless Motors are permanent magnet 3phase ring type, low profile, direct drive motors with large through hole available in 29-240mm diameters.

Applimotion UTS Slotless Direct Drive Motor

Applimotion UTS Slotless Direct Drive Motor

For the ultimate in smooth operation when scanning or positioning, the UTS Series Slotless motors offer zero cogging and sinusoidal torque angle curves.  Considered one of the best motor constructions for many years, Applimotion has leveraged already proven motor technology as the basis for this new family of direct drive motors.  Once you have taken advantage of a slotless direct drive motor you won’t go back to traditional motors.  Features include:

  • Wide Range of Diameters – from 29 mm to 240 mm.
  • Medium motor constant – Low phase resistance and inductance for the motor size optimizes operation with low voltage power supplies and provides the high output with minimum voltage drop.
  • Optional Windings – Select your voltage, speed and current, Applimotion will create a special winding to optimize torque or efficiency.
  • Sinusoidal Torque Curves – motor designs for optimum performance with sinusoidal current control. Less than 1% higher harmonic content for minimum torque ripple on sinusoidal drives
  • Zero Cogging Torque – provides ultra-smooth consistent motion.
  • Optional Back Iron Rings – A standard set of iron rings are offered for each motor.
  • Optional Hall Device Feedback – internally mounted PCA doesn’t add to motor height offered on some motors, others require externally mounted hall device board.
