Whether simple or complex: Motor control systems for automation

01 February 2023

Setting up control systems to drive axes is usually time-consuming and can require software programming knowledge. igus has now developed two new cost-effective and easy-to-operate control systems, so that users can quickly start up their motorised drylin E drive axes.

The D3 dryve controls simple linear or rotational axes with DC motors, without any software or a PC. For more complex travels, such as with multi-axis robots or delta robots, igus offers the D1 dryve, which is a control system for stepper motors, DC motors and EC/BLDC motors. The motor control system can be modified live or simply operated via a web browser. 

With "drylin E", users can deploy the already configured lubrication-free linear or rotational axes, which are ready to install and can be motorised in different installation sizes as a single axis, or a linear robot structure in the case of format and height adjustment systems, or pick-and-place applications.
