>  Electric motors guide
All electric motors have one goal in common: to convert electrical energy into mechanical motion.

>  Transforming machine design: the power of integrated motion control
Reducing machine size, cost and complexity by using integrated motion control.

>  Integrated linear motion systems
High performance and reliability with reduced size, cost and time-to-market.


>  Introduction to Hybrid Motion Technology
Today’s motion applications are requiring more precise control of both speed and position. The requirement for more complex move profiles is leading to a change from pneumatic and hydraulic controls to electric motors. However, even the simple electric motors used today may no longer provide adequate control.

>  Motion Control Shades of Grey: IP65 rating and what it means for your application - NEW!
There are so many opinions about the meaning of IP ratings that it is, in a word, frustrating. The actual definitions are very black and white. Published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and detailed by IEC standard 60529, IP ratings/Ingress Protection Ratings or International Protection markings classify and rate the degree of protection provided against intrusion (body parts such as hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water by mechanical casings and electrical enclosures.

>  MDrive Ethernet overview
MDrive Ethernet products deliver the ease of integrated motor and drive solutions for Ethernet systems, supporting both EtherNet/IP and MODBUS/TCP.

>  Hybrid Motion Technology overview
Hybrid Motion Technology™ (HMT) is a revolution in motion control technology. Combining the benefits of stepper and servo control, HMT bridges the gap between these two technologies opening a wide range of applications while reducing machine cost and complexity.
