Galil Motion Control Company Information
Innovator and Leader
With over 500,000 controllers sold, Galil is the leading manufacturer of motion controllers. Since our introduction of the first microprocessor-based motion controller in 1983, Galil has remained the industry's leading innovator. By offering our customers the most powerful, cost-effective and easy-to-use motion controllers available today, our commitment is to be your primary source for any motion control application. Galil's unparalleled array of motion controllers is backed by superior technical support and can accommodate the most demanding applications-with absolute precision.
Powerful Controllers to Solve Demanding Applications
Galil's motion controllers use a 32-bit microcomputer and are packed with intelligence and speed for handling any application no matter how simple or complex. Modes of motion include point-to-point positioning, linear and circular interpolation, electronic gearing, electronic cam, position following and much more. Galil's latest generation controllers, the Accelera series offer ultra-high speed and precision with 40 microsecond command processing, 32 microsecond servo loop updates, and 22 MHz encoder feedback. Features include PID tuning with notch filter, velocity and acceleration feedforward, non-volatile memory for storing programs, variables and arrays, and plenty of I/O for interfacing to external sensors.
Easy-to-Use Controllers Get You to Market Quickly
It has always been a top priority at Galil to design and make controllers that are easy-to-use. That's why Galil controllers use two-letter, intuitive commands to make programming a snap. For example, the command BG begins motion; SP specifies the speed; and ST stops motion. With over 200 commands, you can quickly and easily program a Galil controller to handle virtually any application. Additionally, Galil provides software tools that simplify system set-up and tuning. The powerful GalilTools software provides "one-button" PID tuning and a multi-trace storage scope for display of real-time data such as position, speed and torque.
Cost-Effective Solutions Give You a Competitive Edge
Galil realizes how critical it is for OEMs to keep their equipment costs down, which is why we designed all of our controllers to give you great value. In fact, we guarantee 100% that our pricing for 100 quantity orders is the lowest in the industry. Go ahead and compare our prices versus the competition. For example, our DMC-1842 4-axis PCI bus controller is just $795 in 100 quantities and $395 in 1000 quantities. That's less than $100 per axis. With prices this low, why bother to make your own controller!
Broad Range of Products
Galil's full product offering can accommodate all your motion and I/O needs. You can choose from single or multi-axis controllers, bus-based or stand-alone, and box-level and card-level controllers. The Accelera Series offers the highest speed and performance while the Econo Series is designed for the lowest cost. Both the Accelera and Econo series are available in PCI bus and Ethernet/RS232 formats. Plug-in drives for steppers and servos save space, cost and wiring. Galil's RIO Pocket PLC provides a compact and cost-effective solution for intelligently handling both analog and digital I/O.
Custom Solutions to Fit Any Application
If you cannot find a controller to meet your requirements, then Galil will design one specifically for you. We are geared to build cost-effective controllers to meet your criteria, whether adding a new command, changing connector style or accommodating a special communication network. With all the inherent costs, time and risks involved, there's no reason why you should design your own controller when you can rely on the expertise, cost-efficiency, and proven reliability of Galil.
World-class Support Assures Your Success
Every Galil controller you buy is backed by Galil's commitment to superior customer support. This includes a fully-trained technical support team with well over 100 years of motion control experience. To further assure your success, Galil works with a worldwide network of factory-trained, independent representatives who fully understand the requirements of your specific application and stand ready to demonstrate Galil products. They also represent manufacturers of motors, encoders, and drives which are compatible with Galil controllers.
Continuing Education to Grow Your Knowledge
Galil has always made motion control education a priority for our customers. Our content-rich, on-line learning center is filled with information such as white papers, web tutorials, and numerous application examples. Galil regularly publishes technical articles , application notes and its quarterly newsletter, ServoTrends. Galil also provides a library of over 20 recorded web-tutorials on motion control subjects such as tuning, motors,drives, I/O and motion programming. Galil's MotionCode Toolkit is an easy-to-use, on-line tool which provides step-by-step solutions for motion applications and includes actual downloadable code. Galil also offers its web-based, "Motion Control Made Easy" course at no charge with product purchase. Customers find our 2-day workshop a great way to get a head start on their motion projects. This workshop includes hands-on labs which enable users to practice newly introduced concepts. Users also gain familiarity with tuning and programming motion controllers, and can spend quality one-on-one time with Galil engineers to discuss their individual project.
"Galil's commitment is to be the leader in providing high-performance, cost-effective, easy-to-use motion controllers that solve real customer problems in the OEM marketplace."
