Moog Ruggedized Motion Controller (Legacy)

The Moog Ruggedized Motion Controller is a ruggedized, freely programmable motion 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. The Moog Ruggedized Motion Controller is best suited for applications in rough environment 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.
