The integrated positioning units of the DRIVECOD product family are used to move secondary axes precisely to a given target position. The positioning is carried out independently by the unit without need of any axis controller.
DRIVECOD's are composed of a gear-motor, an absolute encoder, a drive and a position controller.
Furthermore they can be directly connected to a fieldbus such as Profibus, CANbus, RS485 and Modbus RTU.
The additional RS232 service-interface allows quick and easy setup by means of any PC.
Typical applications are on woodworking machinery, packaging machines, tool-changers, filling machines and general automation of manual axes by replacing digital indicators.
