The DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4 A per phase, 30 V stepper amplifier which drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ¼ step or 1/16 step.  The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5 A to 1.4 A per phase in 10 mA increments at 12-30 V dc.

Designed for compact size, the dimensions of the DMC-30016 controller/drive package are 3.9-in. x 5-in. x 1.5-in., and no external heat sink is required.

The DMC-30016 has a 125 microsecond servo loop update time that is twice as fast and the 15 MHz encoder frequency and 3 MHz stepper pulse output are 25% faster. Other features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feedforward, non-volatile memory for user programs, multitasking for simultaneously running up to four programs, and I/O processing for synchronizing motion with external events. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, position tracking, jogging, contouring, electronic gearing, ECAM, and PVT.

The DMC-30000 provides optically isolated inputs and outputs as a standard feature. I/O include forward and reverse limit inputs, homing input, 8 uncommitted digital inputs, 4 uncommitted digital outputs, 2 uncommitted analog inputs and 1 uncommitted analog output. Two daisy-chain Ethernet ports are included and an external Ethernet hub is not required. A 115 kb RS232 port is also provided. The ability to receive inputs from two digital encoders is a standard feature. BiSS, SSI and sinusoidal encoder input formats are available as options.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
