MDS Integrated Motor-Drive

MDS (MOTOR CONTROL SYSTEM) FAMILY OF AC BRUSHLESS MOTOR AND DRIVE ELECTRONICS IN A SINGLE NEMA 56 PACKAGE

Mechatronics Systems Developed the MDS Family  To Address The Growing Marketplace Need for improved Variable Speed Drives.

MDS combines a High Performance motor and drive in a single compact package.  MDS has  significantly small footprint than AC Induction  or DC brush motors  of the same power output.

This is because MDS  is much more efficient than the AC Induction Motor/Variable Speed Inverter combination. It also offers superior Energy efficiency and Torque, and provides high performance at low speed.

MDS is the first choice to replace DC Brush motors and AC Induction motors  in new and existing applications.  MDS provides the performance of a Brush motor while avoiding Brush motor problems of large size, brush maintenance and inability to operate at high speeds.

MDS is ideal for Variable Speed DC and AC Induction motor applications and processes.  And for new applications, you will appreciate the small footprint, ease of wiring, high Torque, Energy efficiency and excellent velocity control at low speed.

Smart Conveyors, Robotic Vehicles, Centrifuges, Metering Pumps, Mixers, Linear Actuators, Small Power CNC Spindles and Plastic moldings — MDS is suitable for all of these applications and more.
