A new and unique approach to motion control

You will find here a new and unique approach to motion control. The design philosophy has been to innovate, keeping a keen eye upon the application of well understood technology. The resulting product is user friendly and lowers the cost barrier by a mile, making serious motion management systems available to all.

Central to our product offering is the basic brushed or brushless dc motor interfaced with an appropriate gearbox. Add an incremental encoder, sandwiched between motor and gearbox, or an absolute encoder mounted on the back of the gearbox and all of the hardware necessity for a servo is in place.

The Red Drive controller using feedback through the encoder can now be used to maximise the full capability of the motor. The flow chart PC app will allow you to deliver the sequence of events demanded by your design.

Change during the development process is simple and when the design is in place you can use the chip on your own board.

The flexibility.
Access the vast range of standard brushed or brushless dc motors. Interface with gearboxes which are designed to meet the exacting standards of the twenty first century. Use encoders which allow the use of standard components. The result, a unique servo built to meet your specification.

The cost.
Easy to use software keeps the design process in the control of those close to the project. The novel use of standard components and a huge awareness of materials development has enabled our design team to lower the cost of gearboxes. Releasing the unused potential in today’s low cost motors is the final ingredient allowing the total servo package cost to be slashed.

Time to market.
The options available in component selection and the ease with which change is made, the powerful flexibility and user friendly software allows you to minimize the time invested in the design process. Remember you can use Red Drive as a design tool, incorporate it in your final product or take the chip and use it on your own board.
