Unidrive M700

  • High bandwidth motor control algorithm for closed-loop induction, permanent magnet and servo motors – 3000 Hz current loop bandwidth and 250 Hz speed loop bandwidth
  • Flexible speed and position feedback interface supports a wide range of feedback technologies from robust resolvers to high resolution encoders
    • Up to three encoder channels simultaneously e.g. 1 feedback encoder, 1 reference encoder and 1 simulated output
    • MCi modules can eliminate the need for external PLCs and motion controllers


Optimize system performance with onboard Advanced Motor Controller

  • M700 incorporates an Advanced Motion Controller capable of controlling 1.5 axes. The motion functions are carried out 'on the drive' so that system performance is maximized

0.75 kW – 2.8 MW (1.0 - 4,200 hp)
200 V / 400 V / 575 V / 690 V

Led by the results of extensive customer-driven market research, we have tailored five Unidrive M feature-sets to specific application needs identified within Industrial Automation.

The Unidrive M700 provides class-leading motor control for induction, permanent magnet and servo applications, plus onboard real-time Ethernet. Unidrive M700 provides ultimate control flexibility in order to satisfy the requirements of machine builders and high specification industrial applications.

Unidrive M700 offers an enhanced upgrade for existing Unidrive SP users.

Design flexible centralized and decentralized control systems

  • MCi modules can be added to execute larger programs for advanced  system control capability
  • Onboard PLC for logic programs
  • Machine Control Studio is an industry standard IEC61131-3 programming environment for efficient system design and configuration
  • Integrated dual port Ethernet switch provides simple connectivity using standard connections
  • Onboard real-time Ethernet (IEEE 1588 V2) uses RTMoE (Real Time Motion over Ethernet) to provide fast communication and accurate axis synchronization
  • Three System Integration ports are available to fit additional fieldbus, position feedback and I/O options
