Galil’s new DMC-30016 1-axis motion controller packaged with a 1.4A/phase Stepper Drive is now available through Electromate. It joins the growing family of drive options for the DMC-30000 Pocket Motion Controller Series which includes the previously released DMC-30012 800W Brushless Sine Drive and DMC-30017 6A/phase Microstepping Drive. The new DMC-30016 controller contains a 1.4A/phase, 30V stepper drive in a compact 4.0” x 5.0” x 1.5” package. It drives a two-phase bipolar stepper motor in full-step, half-step, ? step or 1/16 step. The DMC-30016 is user configurable from 0.5A to 1.4A per phase in 10mA increments at 12-30VDC. No external heatsink is required.
