MCS (MOTOR CONTROL SYSTEM) FAMILY OF AC BRUSHLESS MOTOR AND DRIVE ELECTRONICS IN A SINGLE NEMA 56 PACKAGE

Mechatronics Systems Developed the MCS Family Of Products To Address The Growing Marketplace Need for improved Variable Speed Drives.

MCS combines a High Performance motor and drive in a single compact package. In fact, MCS has the size of a standard NEMA 56 frame AC Induction motor, but is significantly shorter with the same Power output.

MCS is small because it is much more efficient than the AC Induction Motor/Variable Speed Inverter combination. It also offers superior Energy efficiency and Torque, and provides high performance at low speed.

MCS is the first choice to replace DC Brush motors in new and existing applications. MCS provides the performance of a Brush motor while avoiding Brush motor problems of large size, brush maintenance and inability to operate at high speeds.

MCS is ideal for Variable Speed DC and AC Induction motor applications and processes.  And for new applications, you will appreciate the small footprint, ease of wiring, high Torque, Energy efficiency and excellent velocity control at low speed.

Smart Conveyers, Robotic Vehicles, Centrifuges, Metering Pumps, Mixers, Linear Actuators, Small Power CNC Spindles and Plastic moldings — MCS is suitable for all of these applications and more.
