Galil Motion Control offers a stepper motor drive option for its DMC-3000 pocket motion controller series. The DMC-30017 combines a single-axis motion controller with a 6A micro-stepping drive. The controller is designed to increase performance and power compared to its prior generation.
The micro-stepping drive operates a two-phase bipolar stepper motor. The drive produces 256 micro-steps per full step, or 1,024 steps per full cycle, which results in 51,200 steps/rev. for a standard 200-step motor. The maximum step rate generated by the controller is 3,000,000 micro-steps/sec. The DMC drives motors operating at up to 6 amps at 20 to 80 VDC. There are four software-selectable current settings: 0.75A, 1.5A, 3A and 6A.
