The Modular Drive System (MDS) is a powerful and cost effective solution for applications with multiple axes. The MDS utilizes a unique backplane architecture that provides a common bus platform for one of three sizes of power modules and up to eight drive modules.
The MDS modules can operate on a 230V or 460Vac input. Plus, there are five different sizes of drive modules to meet the needs of almost any multiple axis application. FM control modules provide MDS drives with “snap-in” functionality for indexing (FM-2), programming (FM-3E) and advanced programming (FM-4E). This modular approach allows users to choose the level of advanced machine control they need based on the application's requirements.
As part of our "buy what you need" philosophy, the MDS motion functionality is easily scalable by adding on FM modules.
Whether the drives are utilized in base drive only applications or with a closed loop controller, setup can be achieved in just minutes with our Microsoft Windows®-based PowerTools Pro software. The use of a State-Space algorithm makes tuning very simple and forgiving.

FM control modules provide EN drives with “snap-on” functionality for Indexing (FM-2), Programming (FM-3E), and Advanced Programming (FM-4E). This modular approach allows users to choose the level of advanced machine control they need, based on the applications parameters and not the drive “spec”.
For applications requiring traditional multi-axis control, our MC controller is easily integrated with a single cable connection. These modules are programmed using the our PowerTools Pro software.
The FM-2 module enhances EN drives by adding positioning capability including Jog, Home, Index functions including Position Tracker™ – Fieldbus Indexing. The FM-2 also includes additional I/O providing 8 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs.
The FM-3E Ethernet module transforms the EN into a fully programmable single-axis motion controller, and adds 8 digital inputs and 4 digital outputs. Profibus (FM-3PB) and DeviceNet (FM-3DN) options are also available.
The FM-4E Advanced Programming module has taken all of the features and flexibility of the FM-3E, and added the ability to create complex motion profiles for sophisticated applications.
The MDS requires an external logic supply to power the internal logic of the Power Module and Drive Modules. Use the table provided to determine the current requirements of the application.
