Galil Motion Control EtherCAT controller
The DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT master is a pure EtherCAT controller that can control as many as 32 drives and two I/O modules. This space-efficient package also provides uncommitted I/O for integration into any EtherCAT application. The product is offered in two-, four-, eight-, 16- and 32-axis formats. Coordinated moves can be done within banks of as many as eight axes, allowing for minimal programming language changes. The controller operates in cyclic synchronous position (CSP) mode. In this mode, the servo control loop is closed on the EtherCAT drive while the controller sends motion profile commands at a rate of 1 kHz.
