  Galil Motion Control Introduces EDD-3701x EtherCAT Slave Drive

29. May 2018 – The EDD 3701x EtherCAT slave drive connects to the EtherCAT family from Galil. This family has been extended by two EtherCAT masters and an I / O slave with digital and analog I / O points. The EDD-3701x is a motor amplifier operating in a distributed EtherCAT system with up to 32 slave drives and one master. It has a daisy-chain topology with standard CAT5 Ethernet cable. The EDD-3701x can be connected with Galil masters (DMC-500×0 and DMC-52xx0) for demanding applications or with TwinCAT for simple applications.

The EDD-3701x series can control brushless, brushless, stepper and microstep motors Unlike the competition, the EDD-3701x can control both a motor and 8 digital inputs, 4 digital outputs, 2 analogue inputs and 2 analogue outputs feature. All I / O information of these drives is accessible to the EtherCAT master. This capability eliminates the need for separate EtherCAT I / O devices. The configuration of the EDD-3701x is done with the GDK software from Galil. Connect to a PC via the USB port of the EDD-3701x, follow the process of the GDK configuration tool and start to move the motors.

The EDD-3701x has a small form factor of just 3.9 "x5" x1.5 "and can operate in either cyclic synchronous position mode (CSP) or cyclic synchronous torque mode (CST), and it also accepts quadrature encoders Feedback up to 15 MHz.
