  1. Raspberry Pi Interface with Galil Controllers

    An HMI or Human Machine Interface is needed in many motion control applications. These devices are used to allow a user to instruct a machine on what to do without the need of a full PC. There are many sources for HMIs and many can cost thousands of dollars. With the arrival of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and its Raspberry Pi models, a small but powerful option arrived. Adding to this, the official Raspberry Pi 7” touchscreen display, and the Galil application programmer interface this powerful trio form the foundation for an inexpensive but fully capable HMI that can be customized for any motion control application.

  10. New 52mm Brushless DC (BLDC) motor design

    Maxon motors new optimisation of the High Torque 52mm brushless motor gives even greater performance.

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor


    The EC-i 52mm brushless DC motor from maxon has had the iron-wound internal rotor motor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. This significantly reduces the vibration and noise output of the DC motor. Available in three voltage outputs, 18, 24 and 48V the 52mm 180 W brushless DC motors produce up to 6,000 rpm.
    With a correspondingly optimised magnet ring, the brushless EC-i motors with iron windings offer a very high torque density and a low
