Simplified Motion Series – motion made easy

The simplicity of pneumatics is now combined for the first time with the advantages of electric automation thanks to the Simplified Motion Series. These integrated drives are the perfect solution for all users who are looking for an electric alternative for very simple motion tasks, but don’t want the commissioning process for traditional electric drive systems that can often be quite complex. There is no need for any software since operation is simply based on the plug and work principle. Digital I/O (DIO) and IO-Link® are always automatically included – a product with two types of control as standard.
