Motion Controllers

Servo Controller (MSC II)

Motion Controller

MSC II is a freely programmable servo controller with integrated PLC functionality. It belongs to the M3000 family. Programming is completed with the Moog Axis Control Software (MACS), an integrated development environment, based on IEC 61131. MSC II is best suited for applications where multiple axes need to be controlled via a fieldbus interface. Typical applications are closed-loop control with or without profile generation of multiple electric or hydraulic axes.
