Galil DMC-52000 EtherCAT controllerMotionlink is proud to be the distributor for Galil Motion Control’s latest generation of digital motion controllers, the DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT Master Controllers. The range includes the DMC-52020, DMC-52040, DMC-52080 and DMC-52160.
The DMC-52xx0 EtherCAT Master is Galil Motion Control’s first 8+ axis motion controller. The DMC-52xx0 is a pure EtherCAT controller capable of controlling up to 16 drives and two I/O modules on one EtherCAT network in a small, space-efficient package.
