Discontinued Products

  • No. of axes:

    depending on model 1 to 6 axes (except IO modules)

  • Motion Control Features:

    positioning, synchronization, CAM-profiling (except IO modules)

  • Integrated Amplifier:

    depending on model without up to 6 x DC (except IO modules)

  • Interfaces:

    depending on model, USB, CAN, EtherCAT, Ethernet, RS232, RS485

The following products have reached there EOL - End of Product Life Cycle - and are discontinued:

MACS4-DC3 Motion Control Unit

- replaced by the MACS5-AMP3-Lite
- the MACS5-AMP3-Lite-HP is suited to applications with higher current demands

MACS4-DC6 Compact Control Unit

- It is replaced by the MACS5-AMP1
- the MACS5-AMP2 is suited to applications with higher current demands

MACS4-DSP Compact Control Unit

- replaced by the MACS5

MACS3 Motion Control Unit

- replaced by the MACS5-Compact, the new cost-optimized controller for positioning and synchronizing 1 to 3 axes:
- Same width and similar volume with identical connector configuration allow easy replacement in the control cabinet, and all applications can be adapted and operated because their are backwards-compatible.
- Of course, the MACS5-Compact is as performant as the MACS5 series and therefore much more powerful than the MACS3. With Ethernet, USB and optional EtherCAT, it has more interfaces, additional analogue inputs and an additional encoder.

CIO-CANopen I/O Module

The discontinuation affect all three models:
