The user friendly servo drive you hoped existed

The HDrive is an easy to use IoT enabled servo drive with a sophisticated position control algorithm.

  • Easy to use: The servo motor offers a quick and simple start with its integrated web-interface.
  • No device drivers or cable adapters:  all you need to start is a 12V-24V power supply.
  • Communication: Contorl the HDrive by human readable XML messages send from your favorite programming language
  • Easy extensibility: Each HDrive can control up to 8 slave motors with 3 wires CAN-Bus
