MICROMO has announced that PiezoMotor Uppsala AB, leading provider of linear and rotary high-end positioning systems, is offering the latest drive option for the high-precision Piezo LEGS® motor series. The new DMC-30019 is a single-axis controller based on architecture from Galil Motion Control Inc.

“Galil makes high-end controllers that are widely used within areas like semiconductor, medtech, automation, optics, and research,” said Olle Lindkvist, marketing manager at Sweden-based PiezoMotor. “Engineers worldwide can now benefit from familiarity of the Galil control interface when they design systems using piezoelectric motors. The Piezo LEGS motor, together with the new DMC-30019, gives outstanding performance in high-precision applications.”

The motion controller can operates as a standalone or be networked to a PC via Ethernet. Features include PID compensation with velocity and acceleration feed forward, program memory with multitasking for concurrent execution of four programs, and uncommitted optically isolated inputs and outputs for synchronizing motion with external events.

Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, jogging, contouring, PVT, electronic gearing, and electronic cam.

Like all Galil motion controllers, these controllers use a simple, English-like command language which makes them very easy to program. PiezoTools software further simplifies system setup with real-time display of position and velocity information.
