MSD Single-Axis Servo Drive



Product Description: Single-Axis Servo Drives for the control of sychronous and asynchronous machines, delivering the highest level of dynamic response, smooth performance and application versatility. It is a module of the Programmable Multi-Axis Servo Drive System (MSD).


  • Programmable with built-in PLC functionality per IEC61131
  • High speed communication via a range of fieldbus connections (e.g. EtherCat, CANopen, Profibus DP, Sercos,and others) 
  • High update rates, operating at cycle times of 62.5 µs for current and 125 µs for velocity and position control loops
  • Built-in functional safety per EN61508, EN62061, EN ISO13849-1, IEC61900-5852
  • 8 sizes based on output power ranging from 4 up to 450 Arms and 3 compact size versions based on output power ranging from 2 up to 8 Arms
  • Integrated safety function (per EN 61800-5-2) with Safety PLC available as an option


  • Higher machine productivity - From lowering cycle times in an injection molding machine, to increasing feed rates in a metal forming press, it delivers a significant increase in machine output.
  • Improved machine precision - More precise motion control results in higher accuracy, virtually no part variations and reduced scrap.
  • Higher machine flexibility - The modularity of this servo drive coupled with the ability to tailor customer-specific solutions provides the perfect flexible platform for different machine types, putting them at the heart of today's leading-edge designs
  • Flexibility for use in complex multi-axis applications- This product can be integrated seamlessly as a module in the Programmable Multi-Axis Servo Drive System.
