Galil is simply the gold standard for controlling a servo motor. The card is actually a real time computer dedicated to position control. the little details that make them better number into the thousands. This little trick than Jim just used to redefine the operation of a limit switch is just one tiny example. A major example would be electronic gearing. An axis can be slaved to the operation of another axis. Allows things like rigid tapping, gear hobbing. Another major example would be dual encoders on one axis; allows one on the servo and another on the axis itself, like a scale. Makes super accurate movement possible. So MANY more.
