IDM680 Intelligent Servo Drives

Based on the Technosoft MotionChip™ technology the IDM680 intelligent servo drives embed motion programmer, drive and PLC functionalities into a single compact unit. The drives can operate either as a standard EtherCAT slave with CAN application protocol over EtherCAT (CoE) or can be programmed to execute complex motion programs directly at drive level, using the high level Technosoft motion language (TML). This enables to reduce a master task by calling complex motion functions, pre-stored in the drive memory, or by triggering their execution via I/O signals. Compatible with EasyMotion Studio for quick configuration and motion programming, the IDM680 drives offer a flexible and easy to implement solution for a wide range of applications.
