Digitax HD M750 Ethernet

Network drive for centralised and decentralised motion applications

Digitax HD M750 Ethernet

Network servo drive for centralized and decentralized motion applications

Digitax HD M750 Ethernet is a network servo drive for centralized and decentralized motion applications, featuring multi-protocol Ethernet ports enabling support of:

  • EtherNet/IP
  • Modbus TCP/IP and
  • real-time Ethernet with RTMoE (Real-Time Motion over Ethernet).

The new Digitax HD M750 Ethernet servo drive also hosts the on-board Advanced Motion Controller for distributed 1.5 axis motion control.

Open, efficient, synchronized Ethernet

Maximize machine productivity through high performance deterministic Ethernet. Access future developments in IT-based industries where billions of nodes are installed, future proofing your investments. Ethernet webpages hosted onboard the M750 Ethernet drive


Digitax HD’s standard Ethernet also supports RTMoE (Real-Time Motion over Ethernet) which provides synchronized communication between drives using the Precision Time Protocol as defined by IEEE1588 V2. Distributed clocks are used to automatically synchronize the position, speed and current loops across all drives.

Minimum size, maximum performance!

Due to our innovative design you only increase drive size when option modules are used, achieving significant space saving in the overall configuration.

See the "Options & Accessories" section below for details about the flexibility of Digitax HD M750 Ethernet.

    Supports RTMoE (Real-Time Motion over Ethernet) which provides synchronized communication between drives using the Precision Time Protocol as defined by IEEE1588 V2:

    • Distributed clocks are used to automatically synchronize the position, speed and current loops across all drives
    • 1 ms cycle time for synchronous cyclic data
    • High speed network synchronization of less than 1 μs jitter (typically (typically <200 ns) and 1 ms cycle time for synchronous cyclic data
    • Multi-protocol Ethernet support of EtherNet/IP or PROFINET RT in addition to Modbus TCP/IP, HTTP and SMTP

    Advanced 1.5 axes Motion Controller, key features include:

    • 250 μs cycle time

    • Rapid commissioning with the Connect PC tool and SD cards;
    • Machine Control Studio provides a flexible and intuitive environment for programming automation and motion control features;
      • Programmable with IEC61131 standard languages.

    • Two option slots to add features and functionality for Communication, Feedback, I/O and/or Machine Controller (please see `Options & Accessories` section for details)
    • Multi-protocol Ethernet

    Safety on-board
    • Reduced downtime with machine safety
      - Integrated dual safe torque off
      - Meets SIL3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) and PLe (Performance Level e)
