Product Announcement from Galil Motion Control


Any mode of motion can be programmed including linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and e-cam. Programming the DMC-1200 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as WSDK for servo tuning and analysis, ActiveX Tool Kit for Visual Basic users and a C-Programmers Tool Kit. Unlike other members of the Optima family, the DMC-1200 series does not provide opto-isolated inputs.
