Robin Daughtry is the Director of Marketing with Cross Company and is broadly familiar with solutions offered from the Automation, Instrumentation, Hydraulics, and Integrated Systems Groups.
In a recent interview with Automation.com, Supplier Partner IMS / Schneider's Paul Kling (VP Sales & Marketing SEM USA) states the "MDrive EtherNet/IP solutions allow machine builders and OEMs to seamlessly and simultaneously control and configure intelligent motion control devices over one network. The result is a fast, robust and efficient method to control an unlimited number of motion centric axes anywhere on a machine or plant floor."
The Hybrid Motion Technology, a hardware-based system delivering the benefits of servo and stepper motors, offers unique capabilities and enhancements over both. This technology’s real-time response delivers smooth movement while eliminating unintentional stalling, saves energy and lowers heat with Variable Current Setting, enables operation at 100% of motor torque, and can operate in Torque Mode which is unique for stepper motors.
IMS/Schneider is a valued supplier partner with Cross.
