Motion Controllers with Integrated Servo Drives

MC4Unt

EtherCAT Master Motion Controller with up to 8 Integrated Servo Drives

The MC4Unt is a modular, configurable control system consisting of a motion controller, power supply, and drives designed to meet the needs of OEMs with demanding multi-axis motion control applications. Its unique multi-processor architecture leverages powerful profile generation and servo control algorithms to maximize motion system performance, while its universal servo drive technology provides the system designer flexibility to control most any type of motor or stage. As an EtherCAT master it can control any ACS products within the SPiiPlus Platform as well as 3rd party EtherCAT products.
