Integrated Motor/Driver

MDrive = Motors with integrated electronics.  These compact, powerful and low cost motion control solutions will reduce system cost, design and assembly time for a large range of motion control applications.

IMS MDriveMDrivePlus
Rotary stepper motor integrated with drive, controller, encoder and power supply form a single, compact unit that is quick to install and easy to use.

MDrive Hybrid

Hybrid Motion Technology (HMT) continually monitors the relationship between a stepper motor's rotor and stator at sub-microsecond intervals, and will not allow that relationship to exceed the point where synchronization is lost.  

MDrive Linear Actuators
All-in-one linear motion systems combine leading integrated motor technology with linear motion to deliver high accuracy, unsurpassed repeatability and long life.
