Description
The DMC-300xx is one of Galil’s smallest and most powerful motion controllers. This single-axis
controller not only fits in the palm of your hand, but packs a hefty punch with the 800W internal
sine drive option. The DMC-30000’s dual Ethernet port makes it perfect to connect various
devices; in particular Beijer’s EXTER T60 HMI (Human Machine Interface) touch screen panel and
other Beijer panels that are DMC compatible.

Beijer’s EXTER T60 touch screen is a great choice for any application that requires an easy to
program interface with great graphics. Beijer also provides drivers, through their Information
Designer software, that supports up to 3-axis of motion control.
This application note will provide a basic step-by-step guide on how to set-up both Beijer EXTER
T60 and Galil’s DMC-30012 to create a simple touch interface that will allow the user to input a
particular jog speed and to start and stop motion.
Note: This application note is not meant to subsidize the manual for each of the components
listed in the materials list below. Please use the appropriate documentation from the
manufacturer in order to power, configure, and use each of the components.

Connecting to the DMC-30012
1. Powering the DMC-300012
1.1. Following the instructions found in the DMC-30012 manual for powering the
controller:
www.galilmc.com/support/manuals.php
1.2. In this application we powered the DMC-30012 with a 24VDC, GND and connected
the chassis to Earth ground as provided by the PSR-12-24 Galil power supply.
2. Establishing Communication
2.1. Download and install GalilSuite onto the PC that will be used to make connection:
-2Galil Motion Control, Inc.  270 Technology Way  Rocklin, CA 95765 USA  800-377-6329  Ph: 916-626-0101  Fax: 916-626-0102  www.galilmc.com
http://www.galilmc.com/support/software-downloads.php
2.2. Connect an Ethernet cable from the host PC to the DMC-300012 and power up the
system.
2.3. Open up GalilSuite and click the
icon to open up the connections window. Find
your DMC-30012 controller and assign the following IP address: 192.168.98.101.
Connecting the BLM Motor
1. If the BLM-N25-50-1000-B motor was ordered at the same time as the DMC-30012, the
encoder and hall lines are already properly wired to connect to the 15-pin D-sub
Encoder connector and the motor phases are in the correct configuration.
2. The motor now needs to be sinusoidally commutated. For additional assistance in
sinusoidal commutation and connecting to the motor phases see the Tech Talk “Wiring a
brushless motor for Galil’s Sine amplifier” found here:
www.galilmc.com/techtalk/drives/wiring-a-brushelss-motor-for-galils-sineamplifier/
Also take a look at Application Note 1501: “Brushless Sine Drives” found at:
www.galilmc.com/support/application-notes.php
3. Once satisfied with the your start-up and commutation sequence, un-plug the Ethernet
Cat5 cable from the PC side and place it into the NETGEAR Dual Speed Hub DS104
leaving the other end connected to the DMC-30012.
Powering the ExterT60
1. Use the EXTER T60 user manual, found on the webpage link provided above to find the
appropriate way in which to power the HMI device.
2. This model of the EXTER T60 required +24VDC, GND, and Earth ground to power the
device, thus Galil’s PSR-12-24 power supply was perfect for powering both the HMI
device and the DMC-30012 single-axis motion controller.
3. Plug in one of the Cat5 Ethernet cables to the RJ-45 connector on the back of the EXTER
T60 and the other end to the NETGEAR Dual Speed Hub DS104.
Configuring Information Designer
1. Download the latest version of Information Designer from Beijer. During the writing of
this application note, Information Designer Version 1.52 was the latest software version
available. This software was also used on a Windows XP SP3 PC. It is important to note
that some changes may occur as newer versions are released and results may vary for
different operating systems.
2. Install Information Designer by following the instructions provided by the distributor.
3. Open Information Designer. In the menu bar, select “File” → “New.” A new window
will appear titled “Project Properties.”

4. Under “Operator Terminal” ensure that “EXTERT60(c) Landscape 1.5x” is selected. If
not, use the “Change” button to do so.
5. In the “Controller Systems” selection, click the “Change” button for “Controller 1.” A
new window will open.
6. From this window choose “Galil” as the “Brand Name” and “Galil DMC series” as the
“Protocol.” Select “OK.”
7. When completed, the “Project Properties” window should look like Figure 1 below:
Figure 1: Project Properties Window
8. Once complete press “Ok.” A new blank block (or screen) will appear--this is what the
user will see when they are operating the HMI device. This is shown in Figure 2 below:

Configuring Communication Settings
1. Changing the IP address of the ExterT60
1.1. In the “Project Manager,” the window full of a list of items in on the left side of the
screen, go to “Project” → “Network Connections”
-4Galil Motion Control, Inc.  270 Technology Way  Rocklin, CA 95765 USA  800-377-6329  Ph: 916-626-0101  Fax: 916-626-0102  www.galilmc.com
1.2. Double click "TCP/IP connection 1, 192.168.1.1" A new window titled “TCP/IP
Network Connection” will open. This will change the network connection settings
of the ExterT60 HMI device.
1.3. Since the controller has already been assigned with the IP address of
“192.168.98.10” and it’s default subnet mask is “255.255.255.0” the ExterT60
needs to match this subnet mask. Thus, change the IP address from the default to
“192.168.98.1.”
1.4. Leave the rest of the settings to default. “TCP/IP Network Connection” window
should look like Figure 3 below. Press “OK.”
Figure 3: Proper configuration for ExterT60 communication settings
1.5. Under “Project Manager,” again go to “Project” → “Network Connections” and
perform steps 1.3-1.4 again, but instead for "TCP/IP connection 2, 192.168.1.1."
2. Configuring communication between the ExterT60 to the Galil DMC-30012
2.1. Go to “Project Manager” → “Project 1” → “Peripherals”
2.2. Double click “Controller 1: Galil/Galil DMC series.” A new window will open up
called “Properties for Galil driver.”
2.3. Under protocol select “Ethernet” and under “IP address:” type in the address we
already assigned to the DMC-30012: “192.168.98.10.”
2.4. IMPORTANT: Information Designer will automatically choose “Port number: 502” as
a default. The DMC-30012 standard product cannot act as a Modbus slave. Thus,
choosing this port will cause communication issues. Instead make sure to choose a
UDP port, such as “1024.”
2.5. When all the properties are chosen correctly, your window should look like Figure 4
below. Press “Apply” and then “OK.”

6. To make the Jog speed adjustable by the user, go to the “Access” tab and check the box
titled “Enable user input.”
7. (Optional) You can use the “Appearance” and “Font” tab to change how the scale will be
viewed on the Beijer HMI screen.
8. Once all the settings are appropriately assigned, select “Apply” and “Ok.” The scale
should now appear on the “Main” block.
9. Now that the user can now set and adjust the jog speed, we must enable the user to
start and stop motion. This can be accomplished by adding a switch to the “Main”
block.
10. Once, more, in the “Library” choose the “EXTER -- Switches” tab. Choose any 2-state
switch from the menu and drag it to the screen. Double click the switch on the “Main”
block--a new window should open up titled “Digital Signal *.”
11. In the “General” Tab, type “MOTION0” in the “Digital signal” box. This will send the
equivalent Galil DMC commands “BGX” (Begin) and “STX” (Stop) each time the switch is
toggled. Don’t forget to allow the user to change this switch by going to the “Access”
tab and selecting “Enable user input.” These settings are shown in Figure 7.
