MFI1 MicroDrive Programmable Motion Control

MForce

MForce MicroDrive Motion Control with standard features combines a programmable motion controller with step and direction microstepping drive. Programming is accomplished over RS-422/485 with provided software for point-to-point or multiple unit configurations. +12 to +48 VDC input voltage and an output current of 3.0 A RMS (4.0 A Peak).   Fully programmable using the powerful and feature rich MCode OS.
