Release Notes


GalilSuite is the newest software for Galil's RIO PLC's and motion controllers. GalilSuite replaces GalilTools and the WSDK Tuning software with powerful software tools for Galil controllers. An improved user-interface, enhanced servo tuning capabilities with multiple tuning methods, real-time scopes, multiple device management and simplified communications utilities are just a fraction of the feature set provided by GalilSuite.

Supports Microsoft Windows 8, 7, and XP SP3
  • Terminal - for entering and receiving controller commands
  • Editor - for writing, saving and executing application programs
  • Tuner - for selecting controller PID parameters for optimal servo system response. Full version required
  • Scope - for plotting controller data such as motor position and velocity. Full version required
  • Watch and Viewer - for displaying controller and I/O status
  • Configuration - for displaying, backing-up and restoring controller parameters
Downloads include access to all tools except Tuner and Scope. Access to Tuner and Scope operation can be purchased by contacting Galil directly

Ladder Interface (Beta) Galil's Ladder Interface Software is a software tool for the RIO-471x0 compact PLC. The software converts a relay Ladder Logic program into code for input into the RIO controller. Ladder Logic is often used by programmable logic controller (PLC) programmers to graphically input I/O logic. While direct RIO programming using Galil's two-letter text instructions allows for flexible coding, it is sometimes easier to determine the I/O logic visually with Ladder Logic. (Password Required)

Version 1.0
GalilPVT GalilPVT is a software tool that is used to convert Galil Contour Data points to Galil Position Velocity and Time (PVT) profiles. PVT mode allows arbitrary motion profiles to be defined by position, velocity and time individually on all 8 axes. Along with the ability to convert Contour Data to PVT profiles, the PVT software allows the user to graph position, velocity, acceleration and jerk for multiple axes and download the PVT data directly from the application to the controller. The full version (password required) includes the ability to save the PVT data in a .csv format. PVT is a standard feature on the DMC-40x0 series.
Windows
Version 1.0.0
Frequency Analysis Software (Beta) Galil's Frequency Analysis Software is a software tool for the DMC-40x0 and DMC-41x3 controllers. While tuning servo systems in the time domain works well for most systems, tuning in the frequency domain is often preferred for systems with resonances or when the design engineer is comfortable with classroom control theory.
