Motion controller for demanding applications
Galil Motion Control’s PCI BUS Econo Motion Controller, The DMC-1417, is designed to handle demanding applications.
Galil Motion Control’s PCI BUS Econo Motion Controller, The DMC-1417, is designed to handle demanding applications with such features as an extra encoder input for electronic gearing, program memory with multitasking, uncommitted I/O and user-selectable stepper or servo motor control. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing and e-cam.
Programming the DMC-1417 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. The Econo Series controllers do not include uncommitted analog inputs and are not optoisolated.
- Accepts up to 8 MHz encoder frequencies for servos and 2 MHz for steppers
- Advanced PID compensation with Velocity and Acceleration feed forward and integration limits
- Modes of motion include jogging, point-to-point positioning, contouring, electronic gearing and ECAM
- Multitasking for concurrent execution of two application programs
- Memory for application programs, variables and arrays
- Accepts inputs from two encoders for gearing or dual-loop applications
- 7 Uncommitted digital inputs, 3 digital outputs
- High Speed position capture · Forward and reverse limits and home input
- Sinusoidal commutation for brushless servo motors
- 37-Pin D-type connector
- Custom hardware and firmware options available

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
