Through longstanding distribution partnerships with leading motion control product manufacturers and with our comprehensive in-house custom design and build capability, Mclennan provides motion control and automation solutions that range from separate components such as high performance motors and intelligent drives to complete motion control sub-systems.
Since exhibiting at EDS last year Mclennan has added some exciting new products that will be showcased on Stand D14:
STF series open loop microstepping drives from Applied Motion Products (AMP) are designed for optimal use where machine builders and OEMs prefer to integrate industrial Ethernet or other industry standard fieldbus protocols into automation control systems. These intelligent drives offer a choice of interfaces that include EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IP, CANopen, Modbus, Ethernet (UDP & TCP), and RS-485.
EtherCAT communications – the leading real-time communications network for industrial Ethernet - is also featured with AMPs’ innovative StepSERVO™ closed loop stepper technology intelligent drives. This technology offers automation systems and machine builders an unprecedented range of high performance intelligent drives with greater torque, acceleration, and throughput than traditional step motor systems.
Our distribution partnership with the Danish motion control manufacturer JVL brings integrated intelligent stepper and servomotor motor technology with EtherCAT and many other fieldbus interfaces for highly compact positioning solutions that open the way for tightly synchronised multi-axis motion control as part of distributed architectures.
From Trio Motion, the new Flex-6 Nano Integrated EtherCAT Controller is a powerful and compact integrated EtherCAT solution offering up to 64 Axes of synchronised motion. It is expandable though the matching Flexslice range of Input, Output and Axis modules.
Also on display are specialist stepper motor, drive and motion system products for extreme environment applications from Phytron GmbH, micro motors and miniature gearboxes from Portescap, highly specialised encoder technologies from Leine & Linde, and low-backlash planetary servo gearheads from Wittenstein.
