MDrive Ethernet systems feature integrated motor, drive and fully programmable controller, with a standardized IP addressing system that allows up to 255 devices on a network while eliminating the complicated wiring and software configuring of traditional multi-drop systems using RS-422/485 communications. MDrive Ethernet systems use standard RJ45 connectors and CAT5/6 cabling. MDrive Ethernet systems support Modbus/TCP as well as the vendor’s MCode/TCP. An additional enhancement for MDrive Ethernet products is Hybrid Motion Technology—a hardware-based system for real-time response that is designed to deliver smooth movement for servo and stepper motors while eliminating unintentional stalling, saving energy and lowering heat with Variable Current Setting.
