DVC Series - DigFlex® Performance™ for Electric Mobility

The DVC Series is the latest addition to the M/V™ Family of Electric Mobility and Mobile Robotics motor controllers. Get the versatility of DigiFlex Performance plus the raw power from the M/V Family and the convenience of DriveWare® 7 all in one platform.


DVC Series drives output up to 250A peak and 150A continuous. Commands can be via indexing, sequencing, CANopen, +/-10V signals as well as electric vehicle commands such as: 0-5kΩ Potentiometer and 0-5V Analog (Standard, Inverted, or Wigwag).

New for this family is Safe Torque Off functionality (STO) to help engineers integrate safety into their designs.

These full featured drives operate with brushless and brushed servo motors and are available immediately. More information, data sheets and manuals can be found here.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
