Complete solution for positioning electromechanical drives and for format changes

  • With integrated power and control electronics
  • Avoids long motor cables and therefore improves the electromagnetic compatibility
  • Reduces the installation workload and required space in the machine
  • Direct installation in the system thanks to protection to IP54 as standard and IP65 as an option, for housing and connection technology


CANopen, I/O-Interface, Modbus TCP, PROFINET, Ehernet/IP, EtherCat


Absolute position sensing

Standard: single-turn absolute encoder

Optional multi-turn absolute encoder:

  • resolution up to 32 bits or > 4 billion revolutions
  • with integrated buffer for saving the position values
  • Storage for up to 7 days without external auxiliary battery
  • The time can be extended by up to 6 months when using the optional battery box.


Braking resistor - relevant for positioning applications with toothed belt axis or for vertical applications

Standard: integrated brake stopper

Optional: external braking resistor

PositioningDrives software:

  • for designing and making calculations for braking resistors
  • Calculation also for combination with linear mechanical systems from third-party suppliers


Additional features

  • 64 freely programmable position sets
  • Optional integrated holding brake including actuator and external gear unit
  • Safe torque off (STO) safety function

EMCA accessories

  • Wide range of gearboxes to provide the best torque-to-speed ratio for your application
  • Axial and parallel motor mounting kits for standard Festo actuators including EGC, ELGA, and ESBF
  • Cables for power, STO, digital I/O, sensors, Ethernet, and more make it easy to integrate the EMCA into your machine

EMCA options

  • Optional integrated brake for vertical applications or to hold position when power is off
  • Optional multi-turn encoder eliminates the need to home the encoder after a power cycle
  • Optional IP65 protection means you can use the EMCA in dirty, dusty, and wet environments
