Galil Motion Control released the updated GalilSuite Software Package for configuring, analyzing and tuning Galil motion control systems. GalilSuite is a replacement for Galil’s prior generation GalilTools software and offers more features and flexibility.
The software has enhanced servo tuning capabilities and provides multiple tuning methods, making it easy to automatically tune many types of control systems. It also allows multiple connections to be made from GalilSuite to multiple controllers.
The Terminal Tool allows Galil commands to be easily sent to and from Galil controllers and provides a Command Helper with Syntax Checker. The Editor Tool allows controller programs to be opened, edited and saved. The enhanced editor provides cut, paste, copy, insert and find/replace functions in addition to a syntax helper, which includes label detection and syntax help.
The Tuner Tool provides multiple methods for servo tuning including Crossover, General, Curve Follower and Manual, which allows the user to select the optimum method for tuning his system. The user can also select the final test profile as a sine wave, step response, profiled move or custom user code. For each method, the tuner scope captures and displays the controller command position, encoder position, position error and torque in response to the specified test profile.
The Watch Tool provides an easy-to-read display of various controller data such as controller and amplifier status, I/O and motion parameters. Digital input and output status is shown with virtual LEDs and data such as axis position is shown in numeric format in a table. The update rate of the data capture is selectable.
