MDrive Integrated Motors

MDrive represents motors integrated with motion control components for compact solutions. Reduce machine size, cost, and complexity with the world leader in integrated motors — MDrive®.

MDrive products integrate motor, driver, controller, internal encoder and closed-loop performance, all in one compact package. Units are programmable and networkable, satisfying the motion control requirements of many new and existing applications.

The complete family of MDrive intelligent integrated motors includes:

  • Liberty* MDrive
  • Liberty* MDrive Linear Actuator
  • MDrive Plus
  • MDrive Linear Actuator


Hybrid Stepper Motors

Hybrid stepper motors from IMS are available in rotary sizes NEMA 11 (28 mm) through 34 (85 mm), and linear actuator sizes NEMA 17 (42 mm) and 23 (57 mm). These extremely robust, long-life motors carry out precise step-by-step movements that are controlled by a stepper motor drive, such as MForce, to comprise a stepper motor drive system.

Hybrid stepper motors can be operated at very high resolutions, depending on the stepper motor drive.

  • Rotary hybrid stepper motors
  • Linear hybrid stepper motors
