Number of axes:
The DMC-18x2 Econo Series are PCI bus motion controllers designed for the most cost-sensitive applications. The DMC-18x2 controllers accommodate 1- through 4-axis formats and allow control of step or servo motors on any combination of axes. Any mode of motion can be programmed including linear and circular interpolation, contouring, electronic gearing and ecam. To minimize cost, the following features are not available on the DMC-18x2: five through eight axes of control, optical isolation on inputs, uncommitted analog inputs, dual encoder inputs, and the auxiliary FIFO and DPRAM communication channel. If you need these features, select the DMC-18x6 Accelera PCI controller.
Like all Galil controllers, programming the DMC-18x2 is simplified with two-letter, intuitive commands and a full set of software tools such as GalilTools for servo tuning and analysis.
