Picture of M-Drive

Digital 1/4 to 2HP DC drive with integrated motion control



The M-DRIVE is a cost effective integrated controller plus DC drive.  The built-in SCR drive can handle up to 2 HP Permanent Magnet DC motors and has an adjustable current limit of 4 to 16 Amps.  The digital controller provides closed-loop speed regulation for applications that require the highest level of precision.   With zero cumulative error, the M-DRIVE can accommodate demanding electronic gearing applications often found in web handling, and extrusion processes. 


  • No complicated programming required

  • Speed controller with built-in DC drive for up to 2 HP motors
  • 10 millisecond control loop with zero cumulative error for precision speed ratio control

  • Adjustable PID gains and Accel/Decel ramps for improved stability control

  • Built-in LED display can be scaled to engineering units such as feet-per-minute




  • Analog Card:  1 Input - Zero to 10VDC or 4-20mA; 1 Output - Zero to +/- 10VDC or 4-20mA; 12 bit resolution

  • Inverse Set-point Programming:  Set-point is a divisor rather than a multiplier.  Typical uses include time-in-the-oven conveyors, wraps-per-inch winders, or inverse draw ratio infeed nip rolls.
