Intelligent Motion Systems introduces the revolutionary new AccuStep motion control technology that, when applied to step motors, prevents the loss of synchronization due to transient or continued overload, extreme acceleration or deceleration, or excessive slew speed.



MDrive AccuStep systems offer clear advantages in a low cost package for a wide range of motion control applications such as: point-to-point positioning, conveyor control, web handling, drilling, rotary and linear positioning to torque specification, and low end camming, company says. With the addition of torque control, rotary and linear positioning to torque specifications are possible. By enabling variable current control, motor heating and energy consumption can be greatly reduced.



According to Max Wietharn, IMS vice presidnet of sales and marketing, “With AccuStep, there is now a low cost alternative where brushless technology is required. When you add AccuStep control technology’s flexible operating environment and long list of features, combined with integrated motor technology, your solution becomes as simple as applying our products.”



Two MDrive AccuStep product versions are:



MDrive AccuStep for Step • Torque • Speed — AccuStep integrated with step motor, microstepping driver and internal encoder. Features three AccuStep operating modes: Step, Torque and Speed. Details at:



MDrive AccuStep for Motion Control — AccuStep integrated with fully programmable motion controller, step motor, microstepping driver and internal encoder. To learn more, go to:
