By Gretchen Edelbrock, Products Editor
The Unidrive M family delivers seven function-focused drive models that provide precise functionality, a variety of power choice, and minimized dimensions. The family also comes with Intelligent Machine Architecture (IMA)--programmable control devices linked together through open standard Ethernet. IMA enables easy selection and easy integration of products. Accelerated machine development and innovation is provided through integrated industry standard CODESYS (IEC 61131-3) for motion and PLC programming.
Other features include increased throughput: exceptional motor control using standard induction, permanent magnet, servo and linear motors in open or closed loop configuration for total design flexibility.
