Software package for motion and IO controllers
Galil Motion Control's GalilSuite Revision 1.0 Software Package provides eight tools for working with Galil controllers and a tuner tool with a graphical view of multiple tuning responses.
Galil Motion Control's GalilSuite Revision 1.0 Software Package is designed for configuring, analyzing and tuning Galil’s motion and I/O controllers. GalilSuite Revision 1.0 provides an improved user interface, enhanced servo tuning capabilities with multiple tuning methods, real-time scopes, multiple device management and simplified communications.
The GalilSuite software package provides eight tools for working with Galil controllers:
- Launcher – manages controller connections
- Configuration – defines various parameters and provides backup/restore capability
- Terminal – for entering and receiving controller commands
- Editor – allows writing, saving and executing application programs
- Viewer – provides a graphical display of controller and I/O status
- Scope – captures and plots controller data such as motor position and velocity
- Tuner – for selecting controller PID parameters for optimal servo system response
- Watch – displays controller and I/O status in a tabular format.
The Tuner Tool has four methods for tuning with a graphical view of multiple tuning responses. The Scope Tool provides informative scope measurements, yet it's easy to use due to a tracking cursor and intuitive zooming capabilities. The auto-completion tool has predictive source code suggestions, auto-insertion of subroutines, tracking of subroutine labels and a project module that allows code re-use.
GalilSuite's new user-interface has a tool-bar presentation and tabs to organize multiple connections. This allows GalilSuite to act as a seamless application that is easy to manage and maintain.

2012 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.
