The Multi-Axis series comprises two product lines; the SSDC and STF series which have been developed to deliver exceptional performance, flexibility and reliability. They are ideally suited to a wide range of motion control applications, meeting the expectations and unique requirements of customers across various industries, including automation, robotics and medical devices.

The SSDC series is an advanced, high performance Step-Servo drive (Closed Loop Stepper System) which is designed to recognise the importance of seamless integration by supporting multiple fieldbus protocols, enabling simple incorporation into existing systems and devices. A wide range of control options include; pulse/direction control, analogue control, multiple fieldbus protocols (Modbus, CANopen, SCL/eSCL commands, EtherNet/IP and EtherCAT) ensures unparalleled flexibility.

Furthermore, a stand-alone programmable function (Q Programmer) allows users to tailor and optimise their specific motion control systems.

The STF series has been developed as a cost-effective and efficient range of high-performance fieldbus control stepper drives, incorporating a motion controller to enable open-loop control. This series provides customers with a streamlined and economical option for their motion control application delivering excellent value for money, without compromising performance.

Both the SSDC and STF series prioritise safety, featuring Safe Torque off (STO) inputs to ensure the highest level of protection in critical applications. This function also allows for the rapid and secure disabling of the drive's output torque, preventing unintended motor movement and significantly enhancing overall system safety.

The introduction of these Multi-Axis Stepper Drives is another example of Moons' Industries' ability to meet the needs of its global customer from its facilities in Asia, North America and Europe. The company's knowledgeable and experienced team is dedicated to offering personalised assistance and guidance, ensuring that customers can maximise the potential of their Multi-Axis series of stepper drives so they can achieve their unique motion control objectives.
