Galil Controller and Oriental Stepper Motor

Postby RandyLicata » Tue Sep 13, 2016 12:13 pm

Hello, I am currently working on a research project that involves additive manufacturing. We are using:
1. Galil DMC-4080
(http://www.galilmc.com/motion-controlle ... 0x0#info=0)
2. Oriental Stepper Motor w/ encoder model# PK569PMA-R18
(http://catalog.orientalmotor.com/item/a ... 7C3001062x)
3.CRK driver
(http://www.orientalmotor.com/products/p ... ration.pdf)
I was wondering if I could get some help with the connection of the pins between the I/O driver and the Axis port on the Galil Controller. Here are the pin outs for the CRK driver (http://imgur.com/a/KFICC) and for the Galil Axis port (http://imgur.com/a/w9Hsb). Ultimately we want to send commands to the driver which will tell the motor move. If you have other suggestions I am more than open to change the system. Thank you!

Hi RandyLicata,

We unfortunately do not have knowledge of the Galil DMC-4080 controller; only knowledge on our Oriental Motor part numbers. The CRK driver will require pulse and direction signals from the controller. These input signals need a positive and a negative (or common) connection. Based on the links provided, I would look at using pins 3 (DIR) and 13 (STP) from your Galil controller. However, please verify these outputs and which common would be required (GND or +5 V). Our CRK driver can accept either a sinking or sourcing connection.

Furthermore, our driver can be connected in 1 Pulse mode or 2 Pulse mode (1P/2P). Which mode is the controller setup to use? 1 Pulse mode requires a Pulse signal to be sent to pins 1 and 2 of the CRK driver and then pins 3 and 4 would be used to determine the direction. Alternatively 2 Pulse mode would have the Pulse signal either sent to pins 1 and 2 or pins 3 and 4 to determine the rotation direction.

The controller is using 1-pulse signal. The stepper motor also has an encoder we are hoping to use

Hi RandyLicata,

To operate the driver in 1 Pulse mode, you will need to make sure that the dip switch on the driver is set to the 1P side of the dip switch. Please reference page 41 of the CRK manual below for the information on the 1P/2P dip switch:
http://www.orientalmotor.com/products/p ... 189-7E.pdf


Please reference pages 29 and 30 of the above CRK manual for the different connection diagrams. The CRK driver can be wired in either a PNP type or a NPN type connection. In order to operate the motor, the PLS and DIR signals will need to be wired. (Pins 1 and 2 for the pulse and pins 3 and 4 for direction). You will need to contact the manufacturer of the PLC to verify the appropriate connection of the PLC outputs. Our pins 1 and 3 can accept a 5 to 24 VDC input. If the voltage to the input exceeds 5 VDC, then you will also need to connect an external resistor (shown as R1) to keep the input current between 10 and 20 mA.



The information on the TTL type encoder pins for the PK569PMA-R18 motor can be found on pages 3 and 4 of the motor manual which is linked below. Once again, the appropriate PLC pins will need to be provided from the manufacturer of the PLC:

Ok thank you, I will be sure to do this. If I run into any other problems I will post again. I appreciate the help
