The MDrive Ethernet system features an integrated motor, drive and fully programmable controller, with standardized IP addressing system

The MDrive Ethernet system features an integrated motor, drive and fully programmable controller, with standardized IP addressing system. This allows up to 255 devices on a network while eliminating the complicated wiring and software configuring of multidrop systems using RS-422/485 communications. The system uses standard RJ45 connectors and CAT5/6 cabling.

The system’s Hybrid Motion Technology, a hardware-based system for real-time response, delivers smooth movement while eliminating unintentional stalling. It also saves energy, lowers heat with variable current setting, allows operation at 100% of motor torque, and operates in Torque Mode, a unique feature for stepper motors.
