SA5000, SA10000 Discontinued - See new X-Series

MCS high power brushless motor drives combine wide bandwidth with high current for demanding direct drive applications. We offer the industry's most flexible options for customer control including analog velocity and transconductance loops, frequency lock loops and RS232/RS422 interfaces.

Commutation options include resolver, incremental encoder or Hall effect devices. The water cooling option reduces overall cabinet cooling requirements. When coupled with MCS designed brushless DC motors, these systems will provide more power and better performance for your high power application.
