Swedish motor manufacturer PiezoMotor just announced a complete controller/driver for use with their piezo electric motors in the Piezo LEGS® series. The unit, which has been named DMC-30019, is built on the DMC-3x01x Pocket Motion Controller Series, which is latest generation single-axis motion controller from Galil Motion Control.
“Galil makes high end controllers that are widely used within areas like semiconductor, medtech, automation, optics and research” says Olle Lindkvist, Marketing Manager at PiezoMotor. “Engineers worldwide can now benefit from familiarity of the Galil control interface when they design systems using piezoelectric motors. The Piezo LEGS® 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.
The controller uses Galil’s simple, English-like programming language, which makes it easy to program. PiezoMotor’s PiezoTools software further simplifies system set-up with real-time display of position and velocity information.
We are very proud that PiezoMotor has chosen to cooperate with Compotech and Galil Motion Control.
